50ex Headphone Amp with Multipole Technology

The moniker Vero 50ex denotes 50 poles of articulation and the lower case “ex” calls attention to the extra performance provided by MIT Multipole™ technology. This is the first time Multipole™ has ever been used on active circuits. The results are nothing less than astonishing. Silent Power™ is delivered by three Rechargeable Lithium Ion batteries to create the deepest, blackest background. Similar to the experience of looking at stars from a remote mountain top, minute audio details are easily identified against the velvet black space battery power provides.

Revolutionary Headphone Cabling System

The Vero headphone dongle and headphone cables are a logical extension and MIT’s entry into the personal audio realm. All models include MIT’s patented Multipole Technology, featured in MIT Cables’ legendary audio interfaces. The dongles (see next page) are designed to complement your existing cable choice, and the headphone cable is designed on a silent (non-microphonic) cable group and jacket to provide quiet delivery of the audio signal without the added sounds of a cable rubbing on a collar or sleeve. By using MIT’s Multipole Technology, both the Vero Full Range and Vero Reference models will create a lifelike immersive listening experience against a deep black background. There are differences in the two designs for those who may have an mp3 based playback system or headphones that are more frugal by design, or for the audio enthusiast on a budget. For this reason, we offer two performance levels.

Awards and Industry Recognition

Vero 50ex Amp – 2017 Editor’s Choice Award – The Absolute Sound

“The Vero50ex is Music Interface Technology’s first headphone amplifier, and the first product to incorporate in active electronics (rather than in cables) the company’s “2C3D” and “Multipole” technologies. The result, as in MIT’s cables, is a spectacular soundstage that moves the image outside your head. With a warmish tonal balance, the Vero is unfatiguing. With 3W of output power, the Vero- 50ex will drive any head- phones with ease.”

Vero Reference Headphone Cable – Top Pick 2017 – The Absolute Sound

“MIT’s Vero Reference is the best headphone cable we’ve heard, and our 2017 Headphone Cable of the Year Award winner. (Ultimate Guide to Headphones and Personal Audio)”

ABSOLUTE ACOUSTIC PURITY

OPEN-BACKED CIRCUM AURAL HEADPHONES

Utopia have already become the world reference high-fidelity headphones manufactured in France by Focal. They are the result of 35 years of innovation, development and manufacturing of high-end speaker drivers and loudspeakers. Equipped with exclusive technology, they offer striking realism, neutrality, dynamics and clarity, for sound with unrivalled purity. Utopia are unique: they are the world’s first audiophile headphones featured totally open-backed full-range speaker drivers with pure Beryllium ’M’-shaped domes. The acoustic quality of this exclusive solution allowed Focal to avoid the use of any crossover or passive filtering process to achieve a frequency response from 5Hz to 50kHz! The equivalent of two tiny authentic loudspeakers over your ears… They meet all the requirements expected of high-end headphones due to their sophisticated and elegant design and to purposeful materiality, such as the carbon fibre yoke and true lambskin leather ear cushions.

The listening experience is outstanding in terms of realism, natural sound reproduction, dynamics and clarity. When listening to them, the headphones virtually disappear and the audio signal is revealed with a level of precision never achieved until Utopia.
Design is also a key point, be it in regards to the way of using the headphones, comfort, as well as the aesthetic. Another achievement with Utopia is the removal from the conventional rotation included on the yoke and its integration into the headband to ensure a total purity of the design. The true lambskin leather, used on the cushions, reinforces the character of classically elegant lines, as well as the expression of comfort and overall performances. These headphones have immediately been applauded by the press as well as music lovers after launching.

Clear$1,499.00

OPEN BACK CIRCUMAURAL HEADPHONES

Made in our Focal Workshops in St. Etienne France, Clear is our newest reference high-fidelity headphone, taking inspiration from our best technologies found in Utopia and innovations that defined Elear. Clear’s full-range speakers and open back design reveal the tiniest musical details. This is important because it is the widely held impression that headphones reduce the listening space, thus impeding the realism of the sound reproduction. We have designed Clear to bet the pinnacle of openness, when you’re wearing Clear you will forget you are even wearing headphones. Closing your eyes, it is as if you are seated in the middle of a custom listening room with the best high-fidelity speakers available placed in front of you. This is because of the inverted aluminum/magnesium alloy M-profile dome which preserves breath and dynamics worthy of our finest high-fidelity speakers. While the micro-perforated ear cushions, specially designed yoke, and luxury headband make Clear both light and comfortable. What you will hear is unparalleled uniformity, and what you will feel is a transcendent understand of music. Welcome to absolute sound.

Reference Series

These classic Mahogany favorites have been improved from top to bottom end. Every single component and material used in The ‘e’ Series has been upgraded and optimized for sensational sound.

The Mahogany wood now undergoes a new proprietary curing process that enhances its natural tone properties. Wood, being a product of nature, is subject to variations in density and other properties. Our curing process ensures consistency of the signature Grado sound. Rhodium, the most expensive precious metal on earth, is employed in The e Series headphones to prevent corrosion on connectors, and unwanted graininess in your music. Our new driver cone geometry tracks frequencies with unequaled precision, and the coil has been fine-tuned for symmetry throughout the full range. One thing we didn’t change is the traditional appearance that Grado fans cherish. The open-back form factor of our headphones produces a cleaner, more authentic sonic experience.
