Released on 4th October 2022, the Focal Bathys are premium wireless headphones with Active Noise Cancellation (ANC). Benefiting from the brand’s savoir-faire in sound and high-end headphones prowess, the Focal Bathys delivers a pure hi-fi sound, either via 5.1 Bluetooth multipoint or wired connection thanks to its USB-DAC mode.

A beautiful new colourway – DUNE – was also released in September 2023.

These gorgeous headphones boast Focal speaker drivers made in France, high-performance noise cancelling technology, over 30 hours of battery life, high-grade materials and a number of attractive features. Focal Bathys is the new must-have Bluetooth headphone set to enhance all your travels.

The Focal Bathys offers a detailed, precise and dynamic sound, showcasing the high-fidelity sound responsible for Focal’s reputation for over 40 years, both in France and worldwide.

Twin ANC Modes

It offers two effective noise-cancelling modes for a total escape into your music: a Silent mode optimised for journeys with high background noise (planes, trains, etc.) and a Soft mode to help with focus at home, in the office, etc. It also features a Transparency mode that allows you to hear sounds around you when needed.

Easily accessible control buttons and Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant voice assistants are provided for effortless use. It also has an adjustable EQ to customise the sound. The voice assistants, EQ and other settings are available in the dedicated app developed by Focal.

Extensive Compatibility

Focal Bathys is compatible with SBC, AAC, Apt-XTM and Apt-XTM Adaptive codecs, providing an extensive choice of connectivity modes (Bluetooth®, Jack, USB). It also has a Clear Voice Capture microphone technology for crystal clear telephone conversations.

In terms of battery life, Bathys offers over 30 hours of use, with its fast-charging function giving you 5 extra listening hours in just 15 minutes. Finally, two cables (4ft (1.2m) 3.5mm Jack and 4ft (1.2m) USB-C®) are supplied with the headphones for optimal wired listening to suit all uses.

The distinctive Bathys design is inherited from Focal’s open-and-closed-back headphones. These ergonomic headphones combine refined materials, such as Magnesium on the yokes, real leather on the headband and Aluminium for a robust construction, resulting in outstanding comfort for any head shape.

Distinctive Aesthetics

The ear cup grilles reflect Focal’s distinctive headphones design code, with its highly aesthetic curves. Focal’s flame symbol features at the centre of the earcup, incorporating a white backlight system to be activated if desired, for an understated, chic visual effect.

Another standout feature of Bathys is its elegant and timeless Black Magnesium Silver or new DUNE colourway. Designed to be lighter, more compact and with superior staying power, it is the ideal travel companion. A meticulously finished carrying case is supplied with the headphones.
