Fo­cal Clear

Australian HIFI - - EISA AWARDS – 2018-2019 -

Judges’ Ci­ta­tion: Clear by name, clear by na­ture. This head­phone de­liv­ers a won­der­fully open and translu­cent sound thanks to clever de­sign and ex­cel­lent build qual­ity. It may ap­pear rel­a­tively ex­pen­sive, but Fo­cal has gone all out for great­ness and suc­ceeded. Like the com­pany’s more af­ford­able Elear and pricier Utopia mod­els, the Clear’s dy­namic drive units have a spe­cially shaped di­aphragm with a roll sur­round, op­ti­mis­ing re­sponse while con­trol­ling any break-up modes. This makes for a crisp and in­sight­ful sound that’s fa­tigue-free yet boasts a par­tic­u­larly firm and an­i­mated bass. Fac­tor in the sump­tu­ous leather-cov­ered earpads and head­band, and this new de­sign de­liv­ers hours of mu­si­cal fun in con­sum­mate com­fort.
