Since its release in October 2022, the Bathys headphones from Focal have become one of the company’s most popular headphones, and to provide users with state-of-the-art features, the headphones now include its Mimi Hearing Test.
Not resting on its laurels, the French audio company is enhancing its first Bluetooth noise cancelling headphones, with the launch of its new dune finish, as well as introducing an extra feature allowing users to adapt Bathys sound to their hearing.
The dune finish is inspired by quarry minerals—Greek landscapes and desert sands—and it combines a beige color with silver details (grilles, rings, etc.). The neutral beige shade is easy to pair with any color of outfit.
In its quest to offer its customers the very best, the Focal teams have incorporated a new feature into the headphones: The Mimi hearing test. Available via the Focal & Naim app, this option allows users to configure the sound delivered by Bathys according to their hearing, thereby allowing them to enjoy the Focal sound regardless of their test results. In other words: Bathys adapts to everyone’s hearing. Those with the Black Silver version now also have access to this test, by simply updating the Focal & Naim app.
Focal emphasizes the dune and black silver finishes lie the same performance and features: outstanding sound for a pair of wireless headphones. Bathys headphones delivers 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 aluminum/magnesium dome that Focal claims delivers deep bass, mellow treble and clear vocals. This Hi-Fi sound is enhanced by perfect soundproofing: The noise-cancelling technology includes an optimized ‘Silent’ mode for noisy environments that includes planes, trains and other similar settings. The headphones also offer ‘soft’ mode to help users concentrate at home. T
Other features include voice assistants, adjustable equalization, a choice of connectivity (Bluetooth, Jack, USB); as well as the ability to provide up to a 30-hour battery life (5 extra hours available in 15 minutes thanks to its fast-charging function), and more.
