”Focal blends Bluetooth into its high-end headphones recipe with great success.” ’What Hi-Fi?’ – 5 Star review.

Premium travel headphones

Blending Active Noise Isolation and Bluetooth connectivity with Focal’s legendary sound quality, the Focal Bathys have what it takes to make the ultimate pair of travel headphones. First class comfort and style further enhances their case as the ultimate travel companion.

Ideal sound isolation – whatever the environment
For the perfect sound isolation, in every environment, the Focal Bathys offer various noise cancelation modes. ‘Silent’ mode maximises the Active Noise Cancelation (ANC), making it ideal for music on the move. ‘Soft’ mode suits less noisy environments and is ideal for when working in the office or at home. ‘Transparency’ mode is also available for when you need to be more aware of surroundings, such as when walking or waiting for travel announcements.

Superb Focal sound quality
Whatever the environment, Focal’s sound quality is in a class of its own. Using patented aluminium/magnesium M-dome speakers, the Bathys produce a dynamic and detailed sound. Getting the perfect balance between a deep, rich bass and natural vocals, it’s easy to engage with the Bathys.

Go wired via USB for ultimate audio
For the best sound quality experience, the Bathys connect to your source via a conventional 3.5mm headphone output or, better still, USB-C. Connect to your device’s USB-C interface and you get to make use of the Bathys’ USB DAC (Digital to Analogue Convertor) that supports 24-bit/192Hz Hi-Res audio.

Supreme comfort
Using materials such as magnesium, aluminium and leather, the Focal Bathys feel like a premium pair of headphones the moment you pick them up. Put them on and the soft ear pads and padded headband prove comfortable for the longest journeys. Exclusive details, such as the (switchable) illuminated logo make these headphones stand out from the crowd.

Long-lasting battery life
Even when connected via Bluetooth and with ANC on, battery life stands at an impressive 30 hours. If you’ve forgotten to charge your headphones but are dashing for a flight, a quick 15 minute charge is all that’s needed for 5 hours wireless playback.

Travel first class, with the Focal Bathys.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worth the money Build quality is good, noise cancelling is average , sound quality is very good for Bluetooth , lots of sparkle up top. Gets far better when used in dac mode but you don’t buy these if you want to use a wire. I have the clear MGs also, and they are much better sounding than the Bathys but cost double, so I believe for the money the Bathys are pretty much spot on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super sound with super comfort. I listened to these headphones, along with other similar products, at Richer Sounds Leeds. These were the clear winners for me. Fantastic sound and extremely comfortable. I've used them every day for 2 weeks and the battery life is still at 60%.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very comfortable on the head. Great Hi Res Sound Thanks Richer Sounds, I have been looking for HI Res Headphones. I had not heard of Focal Bathys unitl I visited their store in Guildford. Dire Straits is always a classic to listen to and sound great through the Bathys

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Audiophile quality headphones on the go I wanted some noise cancelling headphones that didn’t compromise audio quality - the Focal Bathys fit the bill. Audio quality is shockingly good for bluetooth headphones, with additional EQ settings (in app) to tailor the sound profile to your preferences. The noise cancellation isn’t best in class, but sufficient for my purposes, there is notable hiss when silent though (particularly in transparency mode). This isn’t an issue with music playing. Controls are all button-based and largely intuitive, and I’ve had no problems pairing the headphones with my phone or other devices. They’re comfy, even with glasses, but bulky and may grow a little warm with extended use. The design is also too ‘flashy’ for my tastes and I much preferred the B&W px8s on that front, but the audio quality was sufficient to override those concerns (and thankfully, you can turn off the light-up logo!) Overall, expensive, but recommended if you want audiophile quality sound in a pair of wireless headphones. However, if noise cancellation is the primary concern (with audio quality secondary), alternatives may be preferable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb sound on the move Spent 90 mins in the Brighton store with Damien and his team listening to a range of focal headphones and a few others. Extremely happy with the service and Bathys I purchased. Clear precise sound on the move but with the advantage of being able to cable for even better quality... 5 year warranty. Thanks guys.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Superb sound I would have given these headphones a five star rating, however at this moment I am struggling to connect wired from an IPhone 14 pro max to the usb c on the headphones. Hence cannot experience the dac function in the headphones. I am sure at this time there must be an answer to this problem and am awaiting to hear from Focal support and Apple support. Hopefully once resolved I can upgrade this review Richer Sounds?
