In October 2022, Focal, the renowned French audio manufacturer, took a monumental step in the world of high-fidelity audio by launching its first-ever Hi-Fi Bluetooth® and ANC (Active Noise Cancellation) headphones – Bathys. Since their debut, the headphones have captured the hearts of audio enthusiasts and critics alike, earning accolades for their exceptional sound quality and cutting-edge features. But Focal, always pushing the boundaries of innovation, has some exciting updates for its Bathys headphones, including a brand-new Dune finish and a groundbreaking feature that adapts the sound to each user’s hearing.
Bathys headphones deliver a pure Hi-Fi sound, whether you’re using them wirelessly via Bluetooth® 5.1 multi-point connectivity or through a wired connection, thanks to the integrated USB-DAC mode with a resolution reaching an astonishing 24bits/192kHz. Bathys has set a new standard for wireless audio fidelity.
Understanding that style matters just as much as sound and to cater to diverse tastes, Focal introduced the Dune finish to complement the existing Black Silver finish in the Bathys collection. The Dune finish draws inspiration from quarry minerals, Greek landscapes, and desert sands, resulting in a delicate, luminous appearance. It combines a soothing beige color with silver details, exuding elegance and harmony that effortlessly pairs with any outfit. The attention to detail extends to the entire headphone, the carrying case, and the cables. Bathys Dune is a visual masterpiece.
Focal is committed to offering an unparalleled listening experience. In pursuit of this goal, they’ve introduced a groundbreaking feature called the Mimi hearing test. Accessible through the Focal & Naim app, this test allows users to configure the sound output of Bathys according to their unique hearing profiles. This means that Bathys adapts to everyone’s hearing, ensuring that you get the best possible audio quality tailored to your ears. The Black Silver version now also benefits from this feature through a simple update of the Focal & Naim app.
The Bathys headphones offer remarkable sound quality, driven by Focal’s expertise and high-end headphone production. The speaker drivers are constructed with an aluminum/magnesium dome, resulting in deep bass, smooth treble, and crystal-clear vocals. Bathys’ noise-cancelling technology includes an optimized ‘Silent’ mode for noisy environments like planes and trains, as well as a ‘Soft’ mode for when you need to focus at home. Additional features include voice assistants, adjustable EQ, versatile connectivity options (Bluetooth®, Jack, USB), a generous 30-hour battery life (with 5 extra hours available in just 15 minutes of fast charging), and much more.
The Focal Bathys in the mesmerizing Dune finish is now available for audiophiles and tech enthusiasts at an enticing price of $699. With its fusion of impeccable design, cutting-edge technology, and customizable sound, they have set a new standard for what headphones can offer.
