Focal Clear Mg

They're the next generation of the Focal Clear, and unlike their predecessor, their drivers have M-shaped inverted magnesium domes. These are advertised to improve their damping capacities as well as make them lighter and more rigid. They have a smooth and warm sound profile that reproduces clear and accurate vocals and lead instruments

I'm usually skeptical of DYI-style or one-man-show headphones in general, but everything I read about the Borealis compares it to the Focal Clear or Elex, which is a very good sign indeed.

I don’t think anything has been neglected with the Focal Clear. Focal made a choice to prioritize detail and precision in its sound over the more facile thrills of extra servings of bass. What has emerged from that decision is a fantastically well balanced sound married to an equally well thought-out and precise design

Congrats dude! The Focal Clear are a great pair so long as you're not too treble sensitive. Since you got the Arche, you have to save up for the Utopia as well :p You already saved by getting a free Clear and Arche haha

Focal Clear. Basically perfect, sound-wise.

Shout it from the rooftops!

It can be hard to judge how something will sound just from reading impressions online - especially with all of the vague and confusing terms floating around. I've read every review and watched every video related to these headphones prior to buying them (how can you not for this price) - and none of...

- crazy fast, no connection drops. - Apple TV movie/TV show streaming confirmed - perfect sync, no lip sync issues. - quick charge and long battery endurance. Finally something good to enjoy Wired headphones with TV and on the go without a DAP.
