Focal Clear vs Focal Clear MG

Anyone that has used both these? I am hearing a lot of contrasting opinions.
Some say the MG is brighter some say its darker . Some say it has less bass, some other say more bass… I am so confused and cant make up my mind on what to buy; I have the Clear and wondering if it makes sense to upgrade considering I am a basshead and usually like V shaped headphones.

Most of us owners agree on this review…


Clear MG definitely has more bass, I think you will enjoy it. It also has less lower treble presence, and I find the MG warmer and smoother than the original Clear.


Thank YOU for saying it. I agree. MG > OG


Ok thanks, this seems to be the “average” opinion but there were so many contrasting outliers. including Josh Valour on youtube.

I’ve been scratching my head at Josh’s review since it came out, because I don’t agree with about half of what he said. I think he either had more than just a small channel imbalance wrong with his sample, or he was using it with gear that it didn’t pair well with. But like @Resolution said, Head-Fi’s review seems to be the most consistent with our experiences.
