Focal Clear Professional headphones are so comfortable that you forget you are wearing them and the listening experience, feels like studio monitors. Its M-profile Aluminium/Magnesium dome has a new copper coil which provides total dynamic respect over the entire audio spectrum, with an extremely well defined and always controlled bass. At the same time, the very low-mass speaker moving parts mean that these headphones reproduce the finest details in the higher frequencies. Turning to the headband and yokes, their design ensures that the headphones are in full contact with the head, for optimal comfort. The new generation of perforated microfiber ear cushions provides an extremely open design.
PRECISION IN THE DETAIL
Clear Professional uses a new generation of Focal 40 mm full-range speaker. A 25mm diameter, 5.5mm long unsupported copper coil has been developed. The material chosen, copper, has the effect of achieving an extremely high magnetic field in the coil. With this, the moving parts are always under control, even at maximum capacity, providing bass definition worthy of the best subwoofers. Its 55 Ohm impedance makes Clear Professional easy to drive, even in a mobile configuration, directly connected to the headphones output of a laptop. It contributes to an exceptional impulse response with a break-up raised to 24 kHz. Thus, high frequencies are extremely linear and transients totally respected. Clear Professional is capable of precisely revealing the finest details of the recording, proving extremely precise control.
The French manufacturer’s 35 years of experience have resulted in a new generation of domes, launched on Elear and Utopia headphones: the M-profile dome. Formed from an Aluminum/Magnesium alloy, it offers an ideal ratio, combining low mass, high rigidity and excellent damping. The depth of the sound and the dynamics won’t disappoint you.
MAKING THE HEADPHONES DISAPPER
The design of Clear Professional solves the sensation of space reduction, thanks to their new microfiber ear cushions. Their one-millimeter diameter micro-perforations on the outside edge give a level of openness that is unbeatable at this price range. The listening experience in the room, rather than headphones, is intensified. The second benefit to this design is its extreme tolerance to ear cushion positioning, regardless of head profile and size. This degree of openness also provides the benefit of excellent definition of upper bass and low midrange registers, typically where headphones usually struggle in comparison with monitors.
