Focal NEW Clear Mg, luxury headphones for the home
Focal, the French brand renowned worldwide for its audio expertise, unveils a new reference: Clear Mg. In addition to their sophisticated finishes, the sound reproduction of these open-back headphones is even sharper than that of their Clear predecessor. The luxury of Focal products lies in their performance and the experience they offer, as well as in every detail that enhances the object to make it more than a set of headphones.
INNOVATIVE HEADPHONES – MADE IN FRANCE
After four years of research and development, the engineers at Focal have designed a Magnesium dome for the Clear Mg speaker drivers. This new alloy, combined with an ‘M’-shaped dome, contributes to even more lightness, rigidity and damping, the three success factors for a speaker driver. The sound reproduction is fine, precise and impactful, for a strikingly realist sound. Combined with an amplifier/DAC, Clear Mg headphones display impressive performance. Thanks to an impedance of 55 Ohms, they can also be used without compromise with a portable audio player. The St. Étienne brand first positioned itself on the global market of Hi-Fi headphones in 2016. This unique savoir-faire, combined with French manufacturing mastered in its own workshops, has led Focal to be recognised by the French state as a Living Heritage Company (Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant).
SOPHISTICATED DESIGN AND MATERIALS: AN ELEGANT OBJECT
In developing its products, Focal places design and materials at the forefront in its mission to create the ultimate sound and listening comfort. The solid aluminium yoke has been developed to perfectly mould to the face, the headband covered in genuine leather and microfibre offers a constant curve, no matter which way the head turns, and the perforated microfibre earpads result in enhanced opening and comfort. The outside of the earpads boasts a sophisticated honeycomb pattern: an elegance contributed to by the brand new Chestnut and Mixed-Metals finish which blend classic and modern looks. For a perfect package, the carrying case has been woven in colours to match the headphones.
The Focal Clear MG will be available during March 2021 priced at £1399.00 / €1500.00 / $1490.00
