In order to meet the growing needs of the headphones market (wireless, portability, etc.), Focal has spent over three years working to adapt their knowledge to the world of “active” headphones, and to prove that they can equip them with high-fidelity sound.
Enter the brand-new Focal Bathys, the first set of wireless headphones with active noise cancelling and high-fidelity sound!
Featuring the latest Bluetooth® 5.1 technology, a battery life of over 30 hours when using Bluetooth® and Active noise cancelling mode, Bathys headphones make the perfect travel companion to take with you wherever you go.
Compatible with SBC, AAC, Apt-X™ and Apt-X™ Adaptive codecs, they provide a broad choice of connectivity modes. For anyone looking for the best possible sound quality, the USB-DAC mode delivers a resolution of up to 24 bits / 192kHz for an uncompromising listening experience, thanks to the DAC and the integrated amplifier in the headphones!
Two modes of active noise cancellation are available: a Silent mode, optimized for trips with high background noise (planes, trains, etc.) and a Soft mode to aid concentration at home, in the office, etc. In addition, a Transparency mode enables you to stay connected to your surroundings.
Its fast-charging feature gives you 5 additional battery hours in 15 minutes of charging. A full charge only takes 1 hour and 30 minutes.
The Bathys design is inherited from Focal’s open- and closed-back headphones. The earcup grilles pick up Focal’s 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 effect. Another standout feature of Bathys is its elegant and timeless Black Silver color way.
In terms of sound, the Aluminum/Magnesium ‘M’-shaped dome speaker drivers – made in France in our ateliers – give the headphones an audio quality that’s unrivaled in its category. Our speaker drivers, equipped with patented Focal technology, have been slightly revamped to adapt to the constraints of a portable set of headphones – they are now lighter with a smaller volume. The result is a clear, dynamic and very precise sound, while retaining a sound signature that is optimized for use on the move: a present, ever-controlled bass.
A dedicated Focal & Naim application will enable access to an EQ that will adapt the sound to your musical preferences and other settings.
Bathys incorporates Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa voice assistants to stay connected at all times. It is also compatible with Google Fast Pair for a faster, more intuitive connection!
The headphones are supplied with a Jack cable and a USB-C® cable to serve frequent travelers who want to watch films on the plane. Their compact, rigid carrying case also means they can be taken anywhere!
