Focal Clear Mg, the gold standard in open-back headphones.  Clear Mg delivers outstanding sound performance and sophisticated, design-led features.

Made in France, these top of the range headphones incorporate exclusive Focal technologies. They are the result of cutting-edge research in acoustics and Focal savoir-faire.  The speaker drivers are composed of a unique magnesium cone.  Magnesium is a material that enables sharp, precise, impactful playback.  That results in stunningly real sound.

The elegant finish of Focal Clear Mg is also unique with a Chestnut and Mixed-Metals design. This is also combined with the ultimate comfort of a leather headband and microfiber earpads. Supplied with two cables and a carrying case, they have everything you could need to enjoy incredible sound in a quiet environment.

Fully unleashed, the sound is incredibly pure.  They generate a wide range of emotions for even more listening pleasure.


The solid aluminum yoke perfectly hugs the face.  The leather and microfiber-covered headband follows a smooth curve regardless of head circumference.  Perforated microfiber earpads play a key part in comfort levels.  Consequently, while also contributing to the open sound of the Focal Clear Mg headphones.  This openness is further enabled by the honeycomb design of the earcups’ external grille.


After four years of research and development, the engineers at Focal have designed a magnesium dome for the Clear Mg speaker drivers.  Combined with an ‘M’-shaped dome, this material promotes even more lightness, rigidity, and damping.  These are the three success factors for a speaker driver.  This innovation brings great dynamics and detail across the full sound spectrum.  It also preserves a neutral and balanced signature. The ‘M’-shaped grille inside the earcup follows the curves of the speaker driver for even greater precision.


These headphones require a running-in period to operate at their best.  They will run themselves in naturally after several hours of listening time.  If you want to speed up the process, we recommend playing very bassy music through them for at least 24 hours at a relatively high volume.  This will stabilize the speaker drivers and allow you to get the very best out of your Focal Clear Mg headphones.
