Focal, the French company that shook up the headphone world recently with the release of the Elear and the TOTL Utopia, has just released a model situated between these two models called the Clear. With a list price of $1499, it is a bit more than the Elear ($999-it is a sign of the current state of headphone pricing that I can consider the $500 “a bit more”…), and the top of the line Utopia ($3999), and is said to utilize much of the technology that went into the Utopia, for a more linear, “clearer” (who can resist this adjective here…), open sound than the Elear. Initial reviews have been very positive. I’m hoping to get a review sample in the near future.
