    I am currently torn between splurging on Utopia or just opting for Clear... thoughts? I already have an Elear.

    I don't know yet, I'll let you know my thoughts tomorrow. Because, I was just in the same boat as you and I'm giving the Clear a try first.

    There is a reason why Utopia is Focal Flagship, right ? Or unless the engineers and marketing teams don’t know what they are doing. But when it come down to “personal preferences”, why would that need outside advises anyways.

    well yeah I assume there is a reason Utopia is $4k and Clear $1.5k. will *I* necessarily hear a difference, I don't know :)

    At this point, its more about specs/materials. And i'm talking the hardcore specs like Horsepower

    if its about "because it sounds good (copyright Hifiman 2017)" , and i kidding here :p , then there are million cases of people preferring even a $100 to hd800. Actually in one case one guy preferred a "$60" (they're like 40 now) JVC s500 to a hd800.

    In saying that, the magnet structure, and overall design/engineering of Utopia, MySphere 3.1 is toptier IMO, and that is why it is $$$ . so YMMV as they say here :D

    Put both on your head. I have no doubt you’ll hear a significant difference. Of course then you’ll be stuck with the decision of which to own.

    That isn’t hard, it will come down to the wallet/pocket Depth

    We shall have a thread called “pocket-fi, and Wallet-fi” on top of many “skeptical-fi, marketing-fi” and so on. May be, “it sounds good - fi” as well
