In 2016, Focal launched its Elear and Utopia headphones, whose major innovation was the first completely openback full range electro-dynamic transducer. This technological advance meant that it was possible to eliminate the distortion generated by the vents, at the same time guaranteeing an absence of dynamic compression related to them. Two years later, Focal now reveals ‘Clear Professional’. These open over ear headphones incorporate a remarkable evolution of the speaker and an extremely open design aiming to make the headphones disappear, to the benefit of the sound.
‘Clear Professional’ headphones are so comfortable that the user forgets they are wearing them, and the listening experience, like listening to the best monitor speakers, takes over. ‘Clear Professional’ headphones take their place as a key staple for the most demanding professionals. These professional headphones have just one, unique objective: to be the ultimate tool for music production.
