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 recognized by the French state as a Living Heritage Company (Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant). Clear Mg delivers outstanding sound performance and sophisticated, design-led features.

The elegant finish of Clear Mg is also unique with a Chestnut and Mixed-Metals design combined with the ultimate comfort of a leather headband and microfibre earpads. Supplied with two cables and a carrying case, they have everything you could need to enjoy incredible sound in a quiet environment. Fully unleashed, the sound is incredibly pure, generating a wide range of emotions for even more listening pleasure.

Solid aluminium, genuine leather, microfibre: the premium materials chosen for Clear Mg are a clear quality gauge but also provide unique elegance. Timeless and design-led, the honeycomb pattern on the external grille of the earcups plus the Chestnut and Mixed Metals finish are a thing of beauty. Quite simply, they are unique in their sophistication. Accessories included: Rigid woven carrying case in colours to match the headphone; 2 low resistivity 24 AWG OFC copper cables: 1 x 3.9ft (1.2m) mini-jack cable with 1/4” (6.35mm) jack adapter, 1 x 9.8ft (3m) 4-pin XLR cable; optional: a stand allowing you to display the Clear Mg Headphones indoor.
