they act as a very effective bridge between the sub—$1,000 Elear and the $3,995 Utopia. It must be said that if you own the former, you’ve got very little reason to buy these, but if you don’t, this could be a very classy entry into the high-end headphone world.

I’ve had the pleasure of auditioning lots of high-end audio gear over the years. Focal’s Clear ranks right up there with the most memorable. These are the finest headphones you’ll find priced less than $2,000. They have earned my highest recommendation.

The Clear, Focal’s “middle-of-the-road” headphone, could very well prove to be the road most traveled by value-conscious audiophiles.
