Focal Elear

Elear is an open back pair of headphones featuring numerous innovations from Focal, which are key to their outstanding acoustics performance. Elear offers the world’s first, full range and fully open back loudspeaker, built-in to a pair of headphones. Additionally, they are made from an Aluminium-Magnesium blend, in a formed shape, unique to Focal with the company’s brand new 'M' shape dome. This new dome shape has originated from the research performed during the Utopia headphone project that will offer the highest quality sound while avoiding potential avenues of distortion.

The acoustic quality of this exclusive solution allowed Focal to avoid the use of any crossover or passive filtering process in order to achieve a frequency response from 5Hz to 23kHz. The result is thus impressively realistic, making the Elear headphones virtually disappear and providing listeners with a truly unique high-fidelity audio experience.

Elear also benefits from the R&D done on Utopia. With regards to mechanical design, the rotation traditionally included on the yoke has been moved into the headband to ensure the total purity of the design. The microfibre fabric, used on the cushions, offers a true comfort for all head shapes and sizes – a quality that is mandatory for long listening sessions.

  • From Tob at 08/04/2018 02:14
    • Which Headphone amp would be recomended for the Focal Elear. Regards.
    • Hi,

      The Elear are quite easy to drive, but do benefit from a good amp.

      Unfortunately our range is a bit limited at the moment, so can I suggest you look at the brand Schiit. The Asgard 2 would likely be a good option.

      Otherwise the JDS Labs EL Amp, or the Matrix Audio HPA-2C would also be good alternatives. It all depends on your budget.
