Bathys was Focal‘s first foray into the modern world of wireless headphones. Not a task they took lightly. They have long been masters of getting audiophile sound out of their headphones, but creating a wireless ‘pair of ‘cans’ brings a whole new set of challenges.
Sound is the most important factor of course but in order to keep up with the more commercial offerings Focal put in years of R&D to develop a technologically advanced product that can compete on all fronts. Bathys delivers a pure Hi-Fi sound, via a Bluetooth® 5.1 multi-point or wired connection thanks to the integrated USB-DAC mode and its resolution reaching 24bits/192kHz.
Made in France, the speaker drivers comprise an aluminium/magnesium dome for deep bass, mellow treble and crystal-clear vocals. This hi-fi sound is enhanced by perfect soundproofing: the noise-cancelling technology includes an optimised ‘silent’ mode for journeys in noisy environments (planes, trains, etc.) and a ‘soft’ mode to help users concentrate at home. There is no shortage of other features, either: voice assistants, adjustable EQ, connectivity (Bluetooth®, Jack, USB), 30-hour battery life (5 extra hours available in 15 minutes thanks to its fast charging function), and much more.
The new Dune colour way combines a beige colour with silver details (grilles, rings, etc.) for an elegant, mellow and harmonious finish. The neutral beige shade is easy to pair with any colour of outfit. Replicating the approach taken in the Black Silver version, Bathys Dune combines refined materials (magnesium on the yokes, genuine leather on the headband, etc.), delivers impressive comfort and features an optional backlit flame in the centre of the ear cups. The finish is applied to the headphones in their entirety, the carrying case and the cables.
We now have both finishes of the Bathys headphones in stock and available for audition. If you would like to try them out, please get in touch and book in a session.
