Focal’s exceptional Clear Mg headphones ($1490) are stylish, refined, and glorious-sounding. They are remarkably adaptable, able to deliver great sound even when powered by nothing more than a cell phone yet also able to take advantage of high-end, high-power, high-fidelity, dedicated headphone amplification.
And crucially, these headphones are supremely comfortable, if anything wearing them feels like a massage and they never feel heavy or fatiguing. Home Theater Review has a full review of these excellent open back, full-size, easy to drive, and thoroughly modern headphones.
Although certainly not “cheap” these Focal represent an excellent investment for anyone who wants a means to explore their music in uncompromising high-fidelity sound.
