”The Focal Clear MG headphones are about as good as it gets for luxurious home hi-fi.” ’T3’ – 2021 award-winner.

100% magnesium drivers

The latest version of the award-winning Clear headphones now feature 100% magnesium speaker drivers. Lighter than before, the new drivers deliver a faster, even more precise sound than the original Clear headphones. The M-shaped drivers continue to provide an exceptionally accurate and natural sound. If you want to hear through to the heart of the music, these are the headphones for you.

Revised open back design
With a new open back design, the Clear Mg’s let the sound truly ‘breathe’. Although this lets sound leak outside it also allows the drivers to move with the least resistance possible – less resistance leads to finer detail, especially at lower volume levels. Being able to spread the sound further also gives these headphones a near holographic soundstage. Close your eyes and you could be there.

Lightweight and comfortable
The solid aluminium yoke provides a strong but lightweight support for the speakers. Combined with the leather and microfibre covered headband and rotating earpiece adjustment, you get the perfect fit for long-term listening pleasure.

Luxurious comfort
Crafted from microfibre fabric, the earpads combine the perfect function of luxurious feel against your head with non-sweat design. Combined with the padded headband, it makes these headphones comfortable to listen to for even extended listening sessions. When not in use, you can store them away in their luxurious carrying case.

Supplied with balanced and non-balanced cable options
For the highest quality, balanced connection, use the 3m XLR4 balanced cable. With a compatible headphone amp, the balanced connection gives you the lowest levels of distortion and most detail. If you’re on the move, simply switch to the 1.2m lead with portable-friendly 3.5mm plug. A 6.35mm adaptor is also supplied with this cable, making it ideal for desktop use with a non-balanced 6.35mm headphone output.

Trade up to the class best, with the Focal Clear Mg.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent build and sound I have found that the clear mg are very easy to drive and have a great sound with an exceptional bass and midrange but a little lacking in high end, that being said they sound great .

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Discomfort Muddled midrange Distorted above 10khz Bought this month as an update to my 22 year old Grado RS1 headphones and I’m extremely disappointed. I’m searching my Qobuz albums for tracks I can stream through a Naim Uniti Atom HE without the high registers distorting. I have also used these phones with my main Auralic G2.1 system and they still distort badly. When I revert to the Grados the sound is pristine. They are also hot and heavy to wear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Endgame headphones near enough I was lucky enough to purchase a set of Clear MG's recently and am still amazed at just how good they are, Sure they are expensive but if you are used to listening to a good hifi then your ears will thank you for these,.They can be used without an amp and still sound pretty good but plugged into a really good headphone amp they are simply astonishing. Using focals Arche amp with them and the pairing is nothing short of breathtaking bringing out details you've probably never heard before. I do however often simply plug them into my iPad in bed at night and the sound is still good enough to listen to. I have owned high end hifi for years and the only time I've heard better headphones was at a show demonstrating the Orpheous headphones at a wallet breaking 30k. Are Focals own Utopia headphones better well yes but then they are also over 4k and these are about 90% there. You may even be able to keep your kidneys and still own them, If you are in the market for a really good headphone these should definitely be on your list to audition.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Breathtaking sound from the first listen Expensive, yes. Exceptional sound, absolutely! I never thought I’d use words like dynamic and range and timing - but as my first foray into high end audio I’m stunned by the representation of the music. Not even ‘broken in’ yet - they may get even better… They look fab too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb sound, great build quality. Superb sound quality, much better than speakers. They are very comfortable to wear and the build quality is great, I like the fact they come with two leads; 6.3mm jack and 4 pin XLR, both 3 meters long. Using the XLR with my Ragnarok 2. Open back, so probably not best for use on public transport.
