Focal introduced the Clear Mg open on-ear headphones. This model builds on the design and concept of the Clear headphones launched almost 4 years ago. According to Focal, the new product is designed for professionals.
Focal Clear Mg Professional received magnesium membranes (the previous model used an aluminum-magnesium alloy) with the same M-profile. The diffusers are driven by frameless voice coils with a diameter of 25 mm, while the diameter of the speakers remains unchanged – 40 mm.
We managed to leave the model parameters unchanged. This applies not only to the impedance of 55 Ohm, but also to the sensitivity of 104 dB, the reproducible frequency range of 5 Hz to 28 kHz and the harmonic distortion factor of 0.25% at a frequency of 1 kHz and at a sound pressure of 100 dB.
The same goes for the shape of the ear cups, frame and headband cushion and ear pads. But now they got a different coloring. In addition, Focal Clear Mg has redesigned the outer grille of the cups.
Focal Clear Mg Professional is supplied with two cables with 24 AWG OFC copper conductors. A five-meter cable, more convenient for “stationary” conditions, received a 6.35 mm TRS connector, and a shorter one – 1.2 meters – ends with a 3.5 mm connector, more suitable for use with mobile gadgets. An adapter from 3.5 mm to 6.35 mm was added to it. The whole set fits in a hard case.
In the US, the Focal Clear Mg professional headphones will cost $1,490.
