Focal Clear Mg Review


The Focal Clear Mg are audiophile headphones with a very premium design and a comfortable fit. They're the next generation of the Focal Clear, and unlike their p...

Focal Clear MG review: officially the best wired headphones at the T3 Awards 2021


The Focal Clear MG headphones are about as good as it gets for luxurious home hi-fi

Gorgeously rich and realistic sound ; Premium build quality ; Easy to drive ; Very comfortable

Open-backed has disadvantages ; Maybe not totally neutral

The Focal Clear MG headphones offer simply fantastic audio quality, and a comfortable design for long periods of listening. And they can even be driven by portable devices, though are at their best with a great hi-fi setup.

Focal Clear Mg


Focal's Clear headphones were already a superb performer, but with the arrival of the Mg version the company has raised the bar even further. Changes include a new, pure magnesium driver (hence the name), improvements to resonance control within the...
