DISCOVER BATHYSFocal presents Bathys, its first wireless headphones, with high-fidelity sound and Active noise cancellation.
BATHYS: THE FIRST SET OF WIRELESS HEADPHONES WITH ACTIVE NOISE CANCELLING AND HIGH-FIDELITY SOUNDCreated with the technology from the best Focal headphones, its speaker drivers with Aluminium-Magnesium ‘M’-shaped dome, made in France, deliver detailed, precise and dynamic sound reproduction. Thanks to its battery life of over 30 hours and its active noise cancelling, Bathys plunges listeners into deep silence to optimise their listening experiences. Its 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 a robust construction, this results in an unrivalled comfort for any head shape.
Designed to be lighter, more compact and ergonomic, Bathys is the ideal travelling companion. Its large choice of connections, its control buttons and its integrated voice assitants allow listeners to forget their Smartphone and enjoy pure listening experiences wherever they go.
SAVOIR FAIRE FOCALWith 40 years of sound expertise, Focal has long demonstrated its ability to create the best headphones in the world. Utopia, Stellia, Clear Mg and Celestee are now industry-leading models.
In order to meet the growing needs of the headphones market (wireless, portability, etc.), we have spent over three years working to adapt our knowledge to the world of “active” headphones, and to prove that we can equip them with high-fidelity sound.
CUTTING-EDGE TECHNOLOGIESFeaturing 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!
HEADPHONES TO TRAVEL WITH ALL THE COMFORTSTwo 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 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 colourway.
SPEAKER DRIVERS MANUFACTURED IN FRANCEIn 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.
