Focal updates their Clear heaphone lineup with the Clear Mg

Focal has just announced their new Clear Mg headphone, replacing the former “Clear” phones as their open back reference. Keeping with Focal’s already smashing sense of style, the new Clear Mg utilizes a primarily Chestnut color palette, featuring subtle integration with the materials used: leather, aluminum and premium microfiber. A handy, form fitting case is also included.

The “Mg” in the name represents the new diaphragm, which is made from Magnesium, and the shape, which is an M-shaped dome. Focal claims the new dome driver to have increased rigidity and damping with lower mass than the original. The result is even more natural, effortless sound than before. Plenty of other new touches abound:

• A new, M-shaped, honeycomb grille, more closely following the curve of the driver.

• Perforated microfiber ear pads for maximum comfort, and enhanced sonic transparency.

• Improved frequency extension at both ends of the audible spectrum.

Focal is holding the line on price, at $1,490 and we look forward to sampling this premium headphone very soon. For more information, please visit the Focal website here:
