The Clear headphones and in-wall loudspeakers 300IWLCR6 and 300IW6 have been voted by 55 international journalists as “best products of the year 2018-2019” in their category! Focal is proud and honoured to receive these latest accolades, which acknowledge the dedicated work of its teams in the innovation and acoustic performance sector.

Every year, the EISA convention (European Imaging and Sound Association) brings together the best in international press specializing in the audio and video sectors. Composed by 55 journalist-experts from around Europe, as well as from the United States and Australia (25 countries), the jury selects the most innovative and high performance products of the year.

EISA award – “High-End Headphones 2018-2019”

Manufactured in our French workshops, Clear is the high-end reference circum-aural headphones. Incorporating an exclusive open-back full-range speaker driver, leading technology inspired by the Utopia model, an “M” profile dome and copper coil with no support, Clear delivers a sound worthy of the best acoustic loudspeakers. Sound rendering magnified by careful design. And not only do they look great, but these headphones are also comfortable and lightweight, two essential features at Focal.

Clear headphones deliver a wonderfully open and translucent sound thanks to clever design and excellent build quality. (…) Focal has gone all out for greatness and succeeded. (…) The Clear’s dynamic drive units have a specially shaped diaphragm with a roll surround, optimizing response while controlling any break-up modes: this makes for a crisp and insightful sound. by EISA jury 2018
