Focal Clear MG open-back headphones, listening pleasure for the home

Made in France, the new headphones boast upgraded performance thanks to new magnesium dome drivers. After more than three years of research and development, the engineers at Focal chose this new alloy which – combined with the dome’s M shape – gives the headphones even greater lightness, rigidity and damping, the three success factors for any speaker/headphone driver.

The light and flexible surround also provides better dynamics and greater bass impact. The sound reproduction is even finer, with even greater precision and impact, creating a strikingly realistic sound.

The new grille has a honeycomb M-shaped design that more closely follows the curves of the driver. The more open design allows for a wider soundstage, while the reduced space between the driver and grille enables even more precise high-frequency reproduction.

The Focal Clear Mg headphones stand out with their Chestnut and Mixed-Metal finish and their fine materials (leather, aluminium, microfibre), the headphones are extremely elegant. The new honeycomb grille on the earcups is a design highlight: not only does it increase the perceived value of the headphones; the more open structure contributes to the upgraded sonic performance. Finally, their perforated microfibre earpads offer enhanced opening and comfort.

Acoustics are also exceptional: the full-range drivers with M-shaped magnesium dome provide even more dynamic sound rendering, particularly in the low frequencies, and more detail across the full spectrum. Meanwhile, we have preserved the neutral sound signature that was so popular in the Clear.

    Beautiful pair of headphones, in terms of sound, styling and packaging. With the right source they have stunning presentation, with inspiring and engaging sound throughout the spectrum. Bass and sub-bass is rich, punchy and well timed. The mid-rage and high-end is clear and dynamic, however, the high-end may be a bit too ‘bright’ for some ears where it over-sparkles slightly.

    In terms of comfort, they are great in this area too, they feel extremely light on the head and have minimal clamping force.

    Service from Premium Sound has indeed been premium and are my go-to for all things audio.
