Focal Clear MG Pro

PRO: there's really only one way to describe the Clear MG Pro. This outstandingly detailed, coloured yet correct, magnesium maestro certainly earns that tag with the way it wraps all your favourite Focal headphones into one.

By combining the bass levels and soundstage of Clear MG with the forward, engaging mids of Clear and a hint of the transient speed and detail of Utopia, Clear MG Pro possibly could summarise Focal in a single headphone nutshell.

The revelatory 40mm M-shaped magnesium driver that Focal introduced for its mid-line Clear MG facilitates all of the above, approximating the performance of headphones beyond its price tier. [See Product Desc. For More]

Product Description

Clear MG Pro is almost too good to be true, yet there it is. By combining many of the best aspects of each Focal classic that has passed, it's on a clear route to success. Sound On Sound rates this Focal highly.

Clear OG is the clear reference here. But Clear MG Pro even surpasses Head-Fi's GOAT by granting better cohesion between those famous mids and the flanking bass and treble ranges, being holistically more complete as a flagship claim.

That's partly empowered by the use of magnesium to build Focal's famous M-shaped inverted dome.

By being even lighter than beryllium, together with a driver suspension that's super pliant and a magnet that can produce more than one tesla of force, this magnesium grants Clear MG Pro transient speed and detail without harshness.

Built to be extremely pistonic in motion, the maximum potential travel of the driver gives Clear MG Pro's bass great low-frequency presence, speed and dynamics.

These are traits that remain as frequencies rise. Focal's humble 40mm driver dimensions and the superb damping qualities of magnesium mean movement stays pistonic and doesn't deteriorate into harsh modal break-up up top.

Treble detail stays inherently warm and natural. Clear MG Pro's portrayal of air and soundstage is aided by a M-shaped honeycomb grille protecting the correspondingly built driver that's exceptionally open. This frame allows even more delivery of high-frequency detail and extension.

Two single-ended cables and a spare pair of pads come packed neatly in Focal's hard travel carrying case. But audiophiles will want to upgrade Clear MG Pro to any number of 4.4mm cables – the likes of Advance TPC and Inspire from Nobunaga Labs and Tago Studio yielding improvements to sound quality that do Focal justice.

The improvement offered by 4.4mm balanced cables will also enable owners to pair Clear MG Pro with a source of consummate quality, taking advantage of its portable friendly trait so any of Cayin Audio's RU7HiBy Music's R6 III and R6 Pro II, plus iBasso Audio's DC04 Pro and DX240 can be used.

While you're looking up Clear MG Pro, also be sure to check out the bronze-tinted chestnut Clear MG with included 4-pin XLR cable here, our other Focals here, and all our headphones here.
