    Verum Audio - Exciting high performance DIY planar

    The difference isn't huge. I would be happy with the perforated pads they sound more balanced and are more comfortable

    Focal Clear headphones

    I owned the silvegarde s3 from norne for my clear, it was a beautiful cable that sounded very nice. I really recommend norne and if you have any questions The owner is a really nice guy that will answer all your questions.

    Verum Audio - Exciting high performance DIY planar

    I also listened to them straight out of the box and the treble was too sharp and the mids fuzzy, but this completely dissapeared. i now love the verums and new pads are on the way.

    1 area i think the verum really beats the elex IMHO is Timbre. It just sounds so big and realistic sometimes.

    Focal Clear headphones

    I also love the hd600 and can say that the focal clear is a great step up. Regardring the hd800 it doesn't sound as good as the clear is what most people seem to agree on. I actually sold my clears because i found the headphone too bulky and heavy. So keep that in mind certainly when coming...

    Verum Audio - Exciting high performance DIY planar

    Backers will be recieving their verums before website orders. As i am backer 338 and having not recieved a shipping order, i think you'll need to wait a bit longer. He also noted himself they are indeed delayed and looking at the reviews i think these are easily worth that wait.

    Focal Clear headphones

    I can only recommend norne. Go look at norne on headfi and see why. I own a norne silvergarde with my clear and it is an awesome combination.

    Focal Clear headphones

    I would definately recommend you give the loxjie p20 a try. I own it and it gives the bass a nice little bump. And for 100 dollars you cant go wrong.

    Focal Clear headphones

    Owh, that is strange i really wonder now how some clears could be so bassey. Could it be malfunctioning? Have you tried comparing it with a store unit perhaps? I can't classify my clears as having much bass at all and that is no preference that's just almost fact.

    Focal Clear headphones

    Zeos had the same problem, it has nothing to do with the clear being pro. It is almost 99% sure your amp. If the output impedance of your amp is too high the bass starts to do really nasty things. You need to try them with a different amp like the chord mojo or something. Hope this helps

    Focal Clear headphones

    It is great reading this. Because i did the exact same and bought the loxjie p20 amp after some recommendations in this thread. I've been comparing the loxjie p20 against the questyle cma400i for a few days now. And it is truly incredible for the price. You definitely have less detail in the...

    Focal Clear headphones

    I'm really interested in the dekoni's, but pads always change the sound in some way. How does the dekoni alter the sound on the clears?

    Focal Clear headphones

    I actually ordered a cable a while back from norne audio and i will probably recieve this cable in 1- 2 weeks. The cable i'll recieve is an occ litz pure silver 4 wire 20awg cable called the silvergarde s3. I will test this cable with my focal clear when it arrives and will report back.

    Focal Clear headphones

    Don't know where you're from but in for example europe are some great importers of audio gd, like magna hifi. All importers are on audio gd's website. I've had audio gd and my dad uses nothing but audio gd on his speakers. They offer amazing quality for the price and a lifetime warranty if...

    Focal Clear headphones

    Only compared to headphones like the utopia and lcd4 and maybe the elear can you call the clear laid back. Because the clear ain't laid back, they're quite dynamic.

    Focal Clear headphones

    Yes i was about to say the same thing. Focal uses there accessories to gain a little bit of extra revenue. The production costs are nowhere near the asking price. Plus Dekoni is a well known pad manufacturer. I just want to know what the possible sound change would be from swapping. i already...

    Focal Clear headphones

    i just noticed Massdrop doing a drop of Dekoni focal pads: https://www.massdrop.com/buy/dekoni-premium-ear-pads-for-focal I would like to just give my clears a tad more oomph like the elears had, you guys think pad swapping wil help with that? And if so which type of pad would be the best. i...

    Focal Clear headphones

    I am currently using the audio gd nfb11 amp for my clear and they pair quite nice, but maybe lack a little bit of bass. I am looking into some balanced amps/ dacs because i heard such great things about using the clears balanced. Does anyone have a recommendation for a fully balanced amp/ dac...

    Focal Clear headphones

    Well thats a good question, First up i think you should take the jot. Why? Well.. I have the nfb11 myself and i think it pairs great, though i must add this is after the amp has been warming up half a day( that really makes a difference). I heard the r2r was a slightly more tubey or "fun"...

    Thanks for the tip! Do you get the code via e-mail? Because we don't have a bestbuy in my country, so i would only be ordering for the code and let the CD be delivered to a random adress i guess? :D
