ELEAR

Product Data Sheet

Elear is an open back pair of headphones featuring numerous innovations from Focal, which are key to their outstanding acoustics performance.

Elear offers the world’s first, full range and fully open back loudspeaker, built-in to a pair of headphones. Additionally, they are made from an Aluminum-Magnesium blend, in a formed shape,
unique to Focal with the company’s brand new “M” shape dome. This new dome shape has originated from the research performed during the Utopia headphone project that will offer the highest
quality sound, while avoiding potential avenues of distortion.

The acoustic quality of this exclusive solution allowed Focal to avoid the use of any crossover or passive filtering process in order to achieve a frequency response from 5Hz to 23kHz.

The result is thus impressively realistic, making the headphones virtually disappear and providing listeners with a truly unique high-fidelity audio experience. Elear also benefits from the R&D
done on Utopia. With regards to mechanical design, the rotation traditionally included on the yoke has been moved into the headband to ensure the total purity of the design. The microfiber
fabric, used on the cushions, offers a true comfort for all head shapes and sizes – a quality that is mandatory for long listening sessions.

Focal Elear Around-Ear Open Audiophile Headphone December 9, 2016
Reviewer: Dale Thorn from Mount Pleasant, SC United States  
The Elear is built like a thousand dollars and sounds like it too.  My impression of the sound (first day) is a slight warmth in the lower mids (2-3 db max) and a slight shyness in the presence area between mids and treble (also 2-3 db).  But that's just the approximate tone or color - the detail is quite amazing.  I think the Elear would be fine with a solid state or tube amp, depending on taste, since it's easy to drive. The earpads are ideal - covered in a fine fabric - better I think than velour or pleather.  Comfort is excellent.  The cable is very long, but you're not taking it on the bus, so that works too.  Highly recommended!
