Arche Headphone Amp/DAC/Preamp

Manufactured in France, Arche is a unique electronic solution which combines a digital-analog converter as well as two pure class A amplification modes designed especially for headphones. Ideal to sit between the digital sources and your audiophile headphones, Arche is the perfect solution to fully enjoy your headphones, whilst benefiting from the performance delivered by the converter to drive high-fidelity loudspeakers!

So Arche is an all-in-one solution, which also offers presets for every set of Focal High-Fidelity headphones (Utopia, Stellia, Clear, Elegia et Elear) to make sure you get the absolute best from this ultimate combination: owners of Focal headphones can therefore be sure they are enjoying a combination of electronics and acoustics that is carefully thought out and specially developed from the very outset. Arche will be updated by using a USB stick.

Power and precision

The two premium AK4490 balanced digital-analog converters can process formats in PCM format up to 384kHz, as well as DSD 256. The analog signal is then routed towards 2 pure class A amplification modes designed especially for headphones (voltage, hybrid) for an uncompromising solution. The original audio signal is totally respected, so as to reproduce the tiniest details of the recording.

Choose your amplification

Upon entry of the digital signal, Arche offers a resolutely audiophile design through its uncompromising dual mono construction, from signal processing to amplification. And thanks to the presets integrated, every user of Focal headphones gets amplification to suit their product and their favourite tonal balance.

Use and design

Arche comes with a solid aluminium headphones mount inspired by the brand’s logo: accessing and storing the headphones is therefore quick and easy, as well as looking incredible and saving on space!

Clear Open-Back Over-Ear Headphones

Focal Reference Headphones for much less

French audio manufacturer, Focal, creates another top performing headphone with the release of the Focal Clear open-back headphones. Following the Elear and Utopia, which were both top-selling options since their release, the Clear fits well in the line with its premium features and styling.

Clear is a new circum-aural open-back headphone for audiophiles. The 'M' -shape Aluminum/Magnesium dome is equipped with a revolutionary copper voice coil that provides remarkable dynamics across the audio spectrum, bass that is always controlled, even at high volumes, and exemplary linearity in the high-end. The new generation of perforated microfiber ear cushions adds to Clear's open design, giving the headphones a weightless, almost invisible feeling. Clear completely envelopes the user in musical purity. Given the premium materials and weighing in at 0.99lbs, you’d expect a hefty feel, but they seem light during listening sessions while still being solid and sturdy overall.

Focal Clear features leather and perforated microfiber adjustable headband with ear cup rotation and a one size fits all Aluminum Yoke with 20mm memory foam ear cushions. Clear has low impedance (55 Ohms) to ensure uncompromising use with portable high-resolution audio players. Clear also features 3.5mm locking jack sockets and comes with 3 cables. Discover a listening experience similar to that provided by high-fidelity loudspeakers and excellent performance when connected to portable high-resolution audio players.

  • Solid aluminum yoke which moulds perfectly to your head.

  • Ear Cushion is padded with 20MM memory foam and covered with a microfibre fabric perforated to remain cool and comfortable.

  • 3 cables included: 4 PIN Balanced, XLR 6.35MM Stereo, Jack, and 3.5MM jack

  • Headband is coated with leather and perforated microfiber.

  • Low impedance (55 OHMS) to ensure uncompromising use with portable high-resolution audio players.

  • 3.5MM Jack sockets with built-in locking mechanism

Focal Clear vs Elear

The Focal Clear will remind you of the Elear in styling, but features a lighter grey and some stand-out features. The earcups will feel familiar with microfiber coverings over memory foam cushions. They contain the same 40mm (1.6-inch) M-type aluminum/magnesium driver, but made with a brighter aluminum housing.

The Clear also includes improved striped cables with multiple connection options and a convenient carrying case.

The Clear offers superior hardware which is evidenced by the larger frequency response range, better THD, and lower impedance.

Overall the Clear headphones don’t just sound great, they sound distinctive. The entire spectrum is refined and clear with a level of detail that isn’t present in the Elear. The engineers at Focal have done an excellent job at tuning the Clear for both lows and highs.

Focal Clear vs Utopia

The Utopia is still the best headphone offered by Focal. While the Clear is an excellent product, it doesn’t compete against the Utopia’s amazing sound and build quality.
