Warm & Smooth Sound Signature

Wireless Headphones with a Warm & Smooth sound signature deliver a relaxed sound that does not overwhelm. This type of sound signature typically reproduces a sound that gives your music a distinctly warm and soothing quality. Vocals and instruments like the saxophone, cello, and piano sound particularly good with this sound signature and is pleasant to listen to music for extended periods. This sound signature is well suited for music listeners who prefer something easy on the ears and listen to genres like Jazz, Blues, R&B and rock sub-genres.

Bluetooth with
aptX Adaptive, aptX & AAC

Battery Life

Wireless headphones have built-in batteries in the earcups, so these headphones do not need external power to play music.


Battery life is a measurement of battery performance. It is the amount of time your Wireless headphones will have enough power. It can be summed up; as how long a battery will last before your Wireless headphones need to be recharged.


Nothing interferes with your music, thanks to the high-performance and long-lasting battery. No interruptions, just pure sonic bliss!


Active Noise Cancellation

Everyone enjoys a little peace at some point and wants to shut themselves off from the outside world. This is where Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) comes into the picture. So what exactly is Active Noise Cancellation?


Noise Cancellation refers to blocking out background noise/ambient noise. But let's be clear: No Noise-Cancelling Wireless Headphones can eliminate all sound; they can only considerably reduce outside noise, creating the impression that the noise is suppressed. However, when the phrase "Active Noise Cancellation" is used, it signifies that the Wireless Headphones are actively searching for noise to block it out.


ANC is a technology that reduces or cancels out the surrounding or ambient noise. It reduces low-frequency noise like the sound of a jet engine or car engine. ANC specifically reduces low-frequency noise well. However, it is not capable of cancelling out high-frequency noise optimally. Wireless Headphones with ANC deliver class-leading ambient noise reduction, significantly improving sound quality.


If you're someone who is a frequent flyer, ANC helps eliminate constant droning noises from jet engines so you can sleep more easily during long-haul flights.


Multi-point Connection

Bluetooth multipoint technology was introduced with the release of Bluetooth 4.0, over a decade ago. It’s a feature that allows Wireless headphones to maintain simultaneous connections to at least two source devices like a laptop and smartphone.


Multipoint allows you to seamlessly switch between devices, such as a computer and phone, without touching your devices. Multipoint technology is a great asset to increase productivity and convenience as you go through your daily life - from home to work. The simultaneous playback of audio from two devices is not possible with Multipoint, though.


In simple terms, Multipoint enables you to maintain a connection to two of your favourite, often-used devices at the same time. It is a great functionality allowing you to multitask without the hassle of tweaking the settings of Bluetooth.

Wireless Range

You must have most likely noticed that wireless signals do not travel an infinite distance. The farther a wireless signal goes, the weaker it gets. This loss is known as path loss, and it defines the range of connectivity. This range of connectivity is dependent on the wireless protocol in use like Bluetooth. Three classes offer standard ranges of connectivity with Class 1 devices transmitting at 100 mW with a range of 100 meters or 328 feet. Most Bluetooth headsets and headphones are Class 2 devices that transmit at 2.5 mW with a range of 10 meters or 33 feet. Lastly, Class 3 devices transmit at 1 mW with a range of fewer than 10 meters.

The Focal Bathys is an excellent-sounding debut ANC wireless headphone and certainly a considerable upgrade on all the previous wireless closed-backs I have reviewed to date.
The Bathys from Focal are the best-sounding wireless headphones I've heard yet. Exceptionally open sound, Highly detailed, USB DAC, Solid battery/fast charging, Bluetooth multipoint.
The design is eccentric in appearance with real leather used for the headband, with curvy earcups that feature grilles to help provide its distinctive Focal aesthetic.
They sound good. The ANC works well. Balance achieved. But for pure music listening, the Bathys understandably lag behind the rest of Focal’s traditional headphone lineup.
After spending a ton of time with the Bathys, I firmly believe it to be one of a kind. For now, there is no other headphone that blends the experience of premium headphones with Bluetooth.
Amazing audio fidelity, wired or wireless, AAC, aptX, and aptX Adaptive codec support, Onboard 24-bit/192kHz DAC, First-class materials and build quality,raised the bar in terms of wireless audio performance.

Best wireless headphones I have ever seen

Pros:
1. Amazing sound quality, almost near to audiophile kinda sound. 9.5/10
2. Build quality is top notch. 9/10
3. Focal’s product at affordable price.
4. It does support hires audio puts 24bit 192 kHz via dac mode.
5. We can use two devises simultaneously.
6. ANC and transparent mode is above average not the best. 7.5/10

Cons:
1. Not the most comfortable headphones out there. 7.5/10
2. Volume keys are made of plastic, I guess at $800 it should be metal.

Hey Noor, thank you so much for your detailed and genuine feedback, we're glad that you have such positive thoughts about the product and we'll share your thoughts with the brand as well.

A rollercoaster ride that crashed eventually

Hello Raghav and team,

I hope you are well. I got these after waiting for almost 5 months as an anniversary gift for my father.

Initially they sounded terrible and I wanted to return the product as I felt cheated as if bought Beats headphones or Monster HDMI cable. I was filled with rage and the criticism from my father was heart wrenching. You can imagine how bad an Indian parent's reaction can be for 65k worth headphones.

Aakansha your representative tried to help but their solutions were useless and I was told that I will have to keep the headphones if they find it okay.

More than anything else I questioned my abilities to gauge products and this was a huge dent to my ego. I have been using HiFi audio products such as Shure Se535, iFi xdsd from a very longtime hence out of the box Focals were bad even paired with a dac.

With a dent in my confidence I took matters in my own hands. I did some troubleshooting and noted to add the Focal software on the iPhone, firmware update and personalisation options made all the difference in volume. I also removed headphone safety from the iPhone. It all worked out like a charm. I tried them and was really happy.

But the sad truth is when I went to my father again with the product hoping he would like them to my dismay he didn't and I guess its very true first impression is the last one indeed.

Hence with a heavy heart these Focals since cant be returned are now a showcase for us. The cans have been sadly 'canned'. I wish the your tech support/ focal guide could have given the right solutions in time or there was a better outcome.

Thank you I guess.

Awesome, Pricey & Attention grabbing!!!

First & Foremost, thanks @headphonezone team for fast and secured delivery.

Coming to the product, first - the design. It is really unlike any other product in the market. It grabs the second stare from everyone. It is an attention grabbing for sure. Glowing logos adds to it(it can be switched off via app). So if you like to flash your stuff, go for it.
Coming to the sound, it possesses a very detailed neutral sound profile. I also used it in the DAC mode thru USC C, it does increase the clarity but not by much.
Sound is really awesome. But, I’ll rate them on 3rd position after Sennheiser momentum 4 on 1st, AirPods Max on 2nd position. But it is way better than Bose NC 700 and QC 45’s.

Thanks a lot for your detailed and genuine feedback, we're glad that you have such positive thoughts about the product and we'll share your thoughts with the brand as well. It'll also help our fellow customers to make the right choice!

Not for all but for me

If you are not audiophile like me then go for Sennheiser Momentum 4 for great digital sound at much low cost. Momentum 4 is like going to party. But Focal Bathys is for purist like me with great sound for all day who loves genuine music. I have AirPods Max, Momentum 4 and now Focal Bathys. Bathys is in different league for sound quality. You need to give time to yourself to accommodate yourself with Bathys. It is more of physical sounds without much digital intervention and not at all a consumer grade headphones. It is an ANC headphone for premium users like me who know what is pure music. If you have enough money to burn out then first try B&W P8, Master Dynamics M75 and Focal Bathys then choose what is right for your ears and comfort. I have a budget constraint of Rs 60000 for my taste thus I went for Focal Bathys without any regrets. Only complaints is the App which does not support multiple device pairing and little slow to react when paired with only one device. Lastly pls try DAC mode with given USB C to C cable to enhance your music listening which you may not get in Momentum 4.

Everything you need if you love music

There are some headphones that'll help you quit your audiophile addiction, some people call them the grail, endgame, you name it. But don't be tricked into thinking you need a $5000 pair of headphones for them to be endgame. The Bathys is a masterclass in every way. And it's THE headphone that'll help you listen to enough richness in the music that you won't ever want to buy anything else. And no, this isn't a paid review. Go for it.

Your kind words just made our day! It’s an absolute delight to know that you loved your purchase!
