Focal Bathys Wireless Headphones with Active Noise Cancellation
Released in October of 2022, the Focal Bathys was a shock to many in the headphone space. Could a high-end headphone manufacturer deliver the high-quality sound they’re known for in wired headphones in a wireless headphone package?
The answer is a resounding yes, with the Focal Bathys blowing out the competition in the high-end wireless headphone space. If you’re looking to remove the mess of wires while still being able to take excellent sound on the go, look no further than the Focal Bathys.
Focal has taken the design, technology, and materials of industry-leading headphones like the Stellia and Celestee, cut some weight, and added a lot of advanced technology. This is a first for Focal, and a huge step forward for the industry.
You’ll experience a balanced and neutral sound that’s faithful to the source, but influenced by Focal’s award-winning approach to dynamics, punchiness, and lively reproduction. The result is a comfortable, easy-to-use set of headphones that wrings every last bit of quality out of the latest Bluetooth wireless codecs but also gives you the option of an excellent wired experience via USB-C and its built-in DAC. And it will last you all week: 30+ hours of listening on a full charge. Running low? Rapid-charging gives you five extra listening hours in just 15 minutes.

We've been on a long mission to find an actually great sounding active noise cancelling (ANC) headphone. Typically, non-sound features are the focus for ANC headphones have made. Apple has made a big deal about their computational audio with the Airpods Max and Airpods Pro 2, while Sony and Bose compete for the active noise cancellation crown with the WH-1000XM5 and QC45. But only a handful of ANC headphones seem to prioritize sound quality over features or gimmicks .
