Focal has just released a new headphone in its "For Pro" lineup. It's called the Clear Professional and its based on its earlier Clear headphones.

The Clear Professional's design is identical to the Clear headphones, but it comes in an striking and attractive black and red color scheme.

The leather and perforated leather headband, as well as the aluminum yokes and ear cup grilles, are all black. The ear pads, which are made out of perforated microfiber fabric, is a bright red.

The Clear Professional uses the same 55-ohm impedance aluminum/magnesium M-shaped dome drivers as the Clear. Sensitivity is identical at 104dB/mW.

It is not clear if the Clear Professional is tuned any differently from the Clear, but Focal says that the Clear Professional was designed for studio monitoring, mixing, and mastering, and will provide a listening experience that mirrors that of its monitor speakers.

To cater to professionals, the Clear Professional will come with two cables. A 5m long coiled cable that terminates in a 6.35mm plug, and another 1.2m cable that terminates in a 3.5mm plug. A 3.5mm to 6.35mm adapter will also be provided.

Finally, the Clear Professional will come in a matching black thermoformed hard shell carrying case.

The Focal Clear Professional will be priced at US$1,699 and will go on sale in February.
