Focal’s new Clear Mg headphones promise to make a $1.5K classic even better


When the Focal Clear, a pair of premium open-back headphones, released in 2017, they quickly catapulted themselves to both critical and public acclaim. They remain one of my favorite headphones of all time.

And now Focal promises to make them even better with the new $ 1,490 Clear Mg.

The proof is of course in the pudding, and updates to audiophile classics aren’t always universally loved. Still, the Clear Mg claims to retain the neutral character of the original while enhancing dynamics and detail with Focal’s latest speaker and housing technology.
