FOCAL CLEAR HEADPHONES
Focal’s ‘Clear’ headphones are now available in Australia for the first time. They use a new-generation, full-range driver whose diaphragm is formed into an inverted ‘M’-shaped 40-mm dome. The diaphragm is made from aluminium/magnesium alloy and driven by a 25.5mmdiameter frameless copper voice-coil. Focal says that using copper as the voice-coil material, rather than some lighter conductor, enables a higher magnetic field to be generated, improving sensitivity, which is rated at 104dBSPL for 1mW (@ 1kHz), and thus the dynamics of the audio signal. The nominal impedance of the design is 55 and its frequency range is specified at 5Hz to 28kHz.
‘ Clear is the newest model in the range, offering a more open sound than the Focal Elear headphones, while offering more warmth and bass response than the Utopia headphones,’ said George Poutakidis, Managing Director of BusiSoft, which distributes Focal headphones in Australia. ‘ The accessories alone make it a fantastic deal, because it comes with a great travel case and three cables for use with every type of electronic equipment, from audiophile portables to top-end system amplification. One cable has a 3.5mm mini jack, one a 6.35mm phone jack and the other has XLR 4-pin connectors. All cables are low-resistance 24AWG oxygen-free copper, with cotton braided sheaths.’ Available now, the Focal Clear headphones sell for $2,199 (RRP).
