Focal's Bathys are a premium set of wireless headphones combining both active noise cancelling and superb high-fidelity sound. Utilising both sound tech know-how and design features from Focal's renowned range of headphones, you can enjoy premium sound quality while eradicating the distracting sounds of the outside world. So it's just you and your supreme-sounding music, wherever you choose to listen.
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, optimised 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 ear cup, 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 and Silver colourway.
With a built-in DAC and amplifier, along with the included USB Type-C audio cable, you can transform the Bathys into a pair of high-resolution wired headphones to use with your laptop or smartphone. This mode supports high-resolution music up to 24-bits and 192 kHz. There's also a standard 3.5mm input on the headphones for connecting the included audio cable to older wired devices. As the Bathys headphones use active amplification, please note that listening via either wired mode requires using battery power. The battery provides up to 30 hours of listening time in Bluetooth and ANC mode, 35 hours using the 3.5mm input, and 40 hours in USB-DAC mode. Get up to 5 hours of listening time with a quick 15-minute charge when using an optional 5V/2A fast-charge adapter.

Focal Audio Premium Sound
Created with technology from the high-end of Focal's range of headphones, speaker drivers with aluminium-magnesium 'M'-shaped domes deliver detailed, precise, and dynamic sound reproduction.
Speaker Drivers Manufactured in France
In terms of sound, the Aluminium/Magnesium ‘M’-shaped dome speaker drivers – made in France in our ateliers – give the headphones an audio quality that’s unrivalled 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 optimised for use on the move: a present, ever-controlled bass.
Long Battery Life with ANC
Thanks to a battery life of over 30 hours (up to 42 hours dependent on usage) and Active noise cancelling, Bathys plunges the listener into deep silence to optimise the listening experience.
Their design follows in the footsteps of Focal's high-end headphones. Combined with refined materials, such as magnesium on the yokes, real leather on the headband or aluminium for robust construction, the result is unrivalled comfort for any head shape. designed to be lighter, more compact and ergonomic, Bathys are ideal for travel.
Supporting both Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant, you can conveniently control your audio playback using voice commands.
Google Fast Pair
When paired with a Google Fast Pair-compatible mobile device, an on-screen pop-up lets you easily pair your headphones with just a tap.
Two Wired Listening Options
While designed to be a wireless pair of headphones, you can connect the included 3.5mm audio cable and go wired if needed. You can even connect the included USB Type-C cable to utilise the built-in DAC and amplifier, which supports up to 24-bit/192 kHz high-resolution playback. Please note that both wired listening modes require battery power to power the active amplification circuit.
Three Noise-Cancelling Modes
Provides the most cancellation and is ideal for noisy environments and settings, such as when on a plane or subway
Cancellation is minimised for quieter environments and settings, such as when you're at home
Cancellation is turned off and sounds are let back in so you can have conversations without removing your headphones
