    Focal Clear headphones

    Anyone toggle back and forth with a planar headphone? Last night I dug up my old hifiman he 400. The overall warmth was a lot of fun. Makes me wonder if the crystal clear headphones are a little over rated.

    Focal Clear headphones

    Yes , I agree somewhat. Clears great but the overal fun warmth sound is a little thin. I would love to try the hex v2 as I’m a big hifiman fan.

    Focal Utopia General Discussion

    People that spend large sums of cash on headphone equipment are always chasing the “ receiver amp floor speaker quality sound”. Unfortunately this level of sound is not achievable with a speaker 1” away from the ear.

    Sennheiser HD800S Unveiled!

    Anyone know the difference between the 800S and Focal Clear? I have the Clears and at times wish the stage was larger.

    Focal Clear headphones

    Yes I agree small sound stage. Sometimes I wish I still owned the 800S so I could get the clean instrument separation ,large stage.

    Not so sure. Bass is pretty good within the Clears. I’d hate to loose detail. Would luv to try one

    Flac on DBPoweramp

    Thx , sounds like the $38 fee for dbpower amp might not be worth it if your wmp does flac.

    Focal Clear headphones

    Yes they seem very neutral. Planar magnetic can add a overal warmth that the Clears don’t have. Which can be more enjoyable sometimes. This warmth has a tendency to reduce fine details.

    Flac on DBPoweramp

    I’m sure we all don’t mind a skip or some fuzz now and them. Most of my rips are from average condition cds. Just curious if besides an occational skip. If the overall sound quality, when listened through higher end gear is different. When dbpower amp is compared to wmp.

    EAC gets the best review. But Parameters are crazy.

    Flac on DBPoweramp

    Thx interesting web site. The site claims wmp can’t rip flac. Mine does. Everyone recommends EAC . EAC is so complicated to set up. I’m not sure why anyone would want it.

    Flac on DBPoweramp

    Can’t do both versions. Have not purchased dbpoweramp. Just WMP. Hence , wondering if the $38 price is worth it.

    Focal Clear headphones

    Is the distortion in both? Try a different headphone. Try a different source. My issue was with only one side crackling.

    Focal Clear headphones

    Also Clears definitely aren’t perfect. What I found was the Clears have less flaws than most. Price, cables, case, sound are hard to beat.

    Focal Clear headphones

    Yes. I never really liked the phrase. All a rounder. My other $1500 can I couldn’t listen to many files. Now I’m a big all a rounder fan.

    Focal Clear headphones

    Correct me if I’m wrong. Aeon open is a planar magnetic headphone. Focal Clear is a dynamic driver headphone. It always boils down to.
