Focal Launch Clear MG Professional Open-Back Headphone

Focal Clear MG Pro in Studio

This February sees the release of not just one, but two brand new headphones from the acclaimed French headphone manufacturer. This new high-end open-back headphone combines Focal’s signature class with new innovations like a brand new magnesium speaker driver.

While the first Clear Professional headphones incorporated 15/8″ (40mm), full-range speaker drivers, with Aluminium/Magnesium ‘M’-shaped inverted domes, Clear Mg Professional has these same speaker drivers, but in Magnesium. After four years of research and development, the engineers at Focal have designed this new material
to obtain an even more optimized combination of the key criteria for speaker drivers of lightness, rigidity, and damping.

Thanks to this new cone, combined with the frameless 1″ (25mm)-diameter and 1/4″ (5.5mm)-high copper voice coil, the sound experience is made even more precise, delivering impressive detail across the full spectrum while preserving excellent tonal balance. The flexibility of the surround offers lightness, therefore more dynamics
and impact across the full frequency spectrum. The open grille inside the earcup extends the high frequencies and follows the ‘M’ profile of the cone more closely to further reduce adverse effects. With a 24kHz breakup, the high frequencies are
extremely linear and the transient signals are respected.

• A brand new magnesium cone for even greater dynamics
