The updated model employs a magnesium cone for even greater dynamics

Focal is now shipping the new Focal Clear Mg Professional headphones (“Clear Magnesium Professional”), a new model of its popular Clear Professional headphones, but incorporating a magnesium (Mg) cone for even greater dynamics with a wide tonal balance across the full audio spectrum. The product is available at retailers in the US and Canada on February 16, 202, and has an MSRP of $1,490. USD.

The Clear Mg Professional circumaural, open-back headphones are designed for music creators looking for a reliable tool in terms of quality and transfer speed. While the first Clear Professional headphones incorporated 1-5/8″ (40mm) full-range drivers with aluminum/magnesium ‘M’-shaped inverted domes, Clear Mg Professional has these same speaker drivers, but in Magnesium. After four years of research and development, the engineers at Focal have designed this new material to obtain an even more optimized combination of the key criteria for speaker drivers of lightness, rigidity, and damping.

Precision, Dynamics and Speed

Thanks to this new cone, combined with the frameless 1″ (25mm) diameter and 1/4″ high copper voice coil, the sound experience is made even more precise, delivering impressive detail across the full spectrum while preserving excellent tonal balance. The flexibility of the surround offers lightness, therefore more dynamics and impact across the full frequency spectrum. The open grille inside the earcup extends the high frequencies and follows the ‘M’ profile of the cone more closely to further reduce adverse effects. With a 24k Hz breakup, the high frequencies are extremely linear and the transient signals are respected.

Comfortable with Luxury Finishes

Everything is designed for work comfort, as well as aesthetics. The design of the headband displays a constant curve and the weight of the headphones is distributed evenly across the head. The solid aluminum yoke is covered with a structured black paint, for sleek design and scratch resistance. Instead of the traditional vertically rotating mechanics, these have been moved within the headband for even greater comfort. This allows for excellent sealing, while the red & black blends classic and modern looks. The thermoformed carrying case shaped to fit the Clear Mg Professional, and with smaller dimensions, is woven in colors to match the headphones. Finally, two low-resistivity OFC 24 AWG copper cables are supplied.

The Clear Mg Professional headphones begin shipping on Feb. 16, 2021, at an MSRP of $1,490.
