Focal is renowned worldwide for their reference-grade monitor speaker designs — and this world-class expertise carries over to modern headphone technology. Focal Clear MG Professional circumaural open-back studio headphones boast Focal’s proprietary M-shaped magnesium domes, which deliver breathtakingly lifelike dynamic response and the remarkable ability to reproduce the most minute details in your mixes across the entire frequency spectrum. Clear MG Professionals transcend the shortcomings traditionally associated with mixing on headphones; namely that mixes don’t “translate” when played back on speakers. This means you can make mix decisions with confidence, assured that your mixes will sound the same, regardless of playback system.
Comfort is an important factor in monitor headphone design. If a pair of headphones doesn’t adjust to fit you perfectly, it can affect sonic accuracy. And if your ’phones cause discomfort, you’ll be distracted and unable to do your best work, so this is yet another area in which Focal has lavished attention on Clear MG Professional headphones — and from our perspective at Sweetwater, they have succeeded wildly. To optimize comfort, the design of the headband and yokes ensures that the headphones distribute their feather weight across your whole head, while a new generation of perforated microfiber used for the earpad cushions result in an delightfully airy and open design.
Beyond comfort, the earcup design amplifies the wearer’s sense of spatialization to deliver a broad, deep soundstage. The high-frequency reproduction precision needed for pinpoint stereo imaging gets an assist from Focal’s proprietary M-shaped grille, which closely follows the contours of the speaker driver. The net result of Focal’s superior engineering is a monitoring experience in which you completely forget that you’re wearing headphones. A must-have tool for demanding engineers, producers, and artists, Focal Clear MG Professional reference studio headphones enable you to make production decisions quickly and confidently to deliver the highest quality product in the shortest amount of time. And that, friends, is what it’s all about.
