With their design surpassing Elear in terms of openness, Clear make you simply forget that you are wearing headphones.

These headphones will become essential: they come with a hard transport case and three cables providing the best solution for different types of audio equipment.
DETAILING FOR PERFORMANCE
This thoughtful design also maintains the realism of sound reproduction: micro-perforated ear cushions and the shape of the headband make them light, comfortable and even more open. The sound is characterised by unparalleled uniformity, guaranteeing the best performance.
NEW GENERATION SPEAKERS
Clear use a new generation of Focal full-range speakers. For this, we have developed a copper 25.5mm x 5.5mm high unsupported coil. The effect of using copper is to achieve an extremely high magnetic field in the coil. In listening terms, this means uncompromised respect for the dynamics of the audio signal. The tiniest details of the recording are revealed.
