Focal Clear Professional

Open-back reference headphones featuring remarkable tonal balance over the entire spectrum

Product Description

The Focal Clear Professional headphones offer many improvements to the open-back design. The classic 1.6” M-Profile Aluminum/Magnesium drivers now include a copper coil greatly improving the frequency response across the entire spectrum, while providing further attention to detail in the sub-bass and ultra-high frequencies. With low mass moving drivers, the Clear Professional can accent the finest details in the highest frequencies, covering a frequency response from 5 Hz all the way up to 28 kHz.

The solid aluminum yolk ensures that Clear Professional mould to the shape of your face. An all natural leather headband and 20 mm memory foam ear cushions with perforated microfiber fabric provide the ultimate level of comfort for extended periods of use. The Clear Professional is so comfortable you’ll feel as though you’re mixing with your favorite studio monitors and not headphones.

Also included is a rigid carrying case with space to store an iLok (not provided), a 16.5’ unbalanced coiled cable, 3.9’ unbalanced cable, 3.5 mm to 6.5 mm jack adapter, and two spare cushions.

While being a proud owner of a pair of the Focal SM9 speakers, I was looking for a pair of headphones that gives me an even more detailed insight into my productions without being effected by any room acoustic issues. I really dig the sound of Focal, so I took a leap of faith and ordered the Focal Clear Pros.
I use them with the Sonarworks 4 headphone edition to tune them to my taste and flatten them out even further. Even before that, I loved the sound and detail but with the correction on, it is mind blowing and really translates pretty well. I can hear distortion and even the smallest noise issues, like an audio microscope. There are quiet heavy but are very comfortable. And those actually work without a dedicated headphone amp, just straight out of my Apollo or Dangerous D-Box. if you like Focal and you want a no compromise high end headphone for under $2,000, this is the ONE! Please keep in mind, those are open back headphones, so you cannot use them in a recording situation since you can hear the music clearly and it would bleed or can bother other people. Critical listening for mixing, mastering or just to enjoy every detail of your music, that is what they are made for.

Begin by giving credit where credit is due-

Warren Huart (Produce Like A must have been standing on line very nearby when God was tuning our ears. Warren did a shoot-out of monitor soeakers at VK in LA some time ago. The pair that made me sit up and smile ended up being the pair that he purchased. I did, too.

He received a pair of Focal Clears from the wonderful folks at Focal. They brought tears to his eyes. I had been researching headphones (for late night mixing sessions) and immediately knew they had to be the pair for me.

How good are Focal Clears? I cannot tell the difference between my high-end monitors and these headphones! The sound is so close I forget the monitors are off.

Focal Clears are truly incredible. Very nice investment, indeed!

Thank you Focal, for caring enough to make such an excellent piece of equipment for the audio engineer. I will take good care of them and faithfully put them in the well- constructed case when not in use.

As always, a warm Thank You to my buddies, Mark Smak and Scotty Iulinelli at VK. Best friends an engineer/producer/musician could ask for ; )

Highly recommend Focal Clears to any else stuck "on the fence"!

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.

From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
