The high-end headphone that everyone could or should begin with: Focal's Clear takes you so far into this hobby's full experience and leaves people wanting little.
Easy to drive, with fantastic XLR cables and a travel pouch that come included to let you hear Clear's correct but coloured tuning at its best in almost every scenario. This is a headphone that's pushing the state of the art affordably, its achievements clearly documented in its white paper.
Innerfidelity's Tyll Hertsens appointed Clear to his Wall of Fame and was even "tempted to reach into my wallet and pay real money to be able to call a headphone [Clear] my own", and Stereophile similarly gives its plaudits labelling this 2018's Headphone of the Year.
