Another standout feature of Bathys is its elegant and timeless Black Silver colourway.
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.
- 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 travellers who want to watch films on the plane. Their compact, rigid carrying case also means they can be taken anywhere!
- Rigid carrying case supplied
- 2 cables supplied: one 4ft (1.2m) Jack cable; one 4ft (1.2m) USB-C® cable

Best of its class
The best BT headphone out there. Now with the incredible possibility of being connected via USB C with the new iPhones, you can use them as a DAC directly. Incredible sound.
The sound is excellent, very pleasing to listen to. The sound is not too sharp, but has an amazing range and excellent clarity. Pro's Excellent sound Nice app with EQ and 3 noise reduction settings Con's A little heavy (but still comfortable) Noise reduction is a little weak and let's in nearby voices and even babies crying The app does not work when using the DAC so there is no noise reduction or EQ
Great Wireless ANCs!
While I wish they had LDAC support, as Samsung phones don't support AptX Adaptive, I think they sound great both wirelessly and over USB DAC mode. As good as the Focal Radiances even, at a much better price! They fold nice and flat in their case for your bag and even do phone calls well. Definitely recommend!
That wonderful Focal sound in a wireless headphone
I thought the chance of my actually liking these was slim but I had to find out so as soon as I saw the sale I ordered them. I read some reviews that said “ if you have the Air Pods Max then you don’t need the Bathys “. I disagree and my Air Pods Maxes are relegated to TV listening now. I used to think they were great and I guess they still are but the Bathys are a big step up for music clarity and timbre. They sound like you have lifted a veil that I didn’t realize the Apples have until I got the Focals. At first I was disappointed and was ready to return them then I decided to try an extended 72 hours of breaking and it made a huge difference. They came alive! I would say they sound about 90% as good as my Elegias playing through my RME. If you like that signature Focal sound you’ll enjoy these.
I auditioned several headphones over a couple months before deciding these had the sonic voice signature and look and quality I wanted. I am enjoying them daily. The Bathy’s should be on everyone’s short list looking for Class A Bluetooth headphones
