Focal Bathys Wireless HiFi Headphones with Active Noise Cancellation - Official Discussion Thread

Focal is teasing a new product on their instagram as being released on October 4th, 2022.

EDIT The Focal Bathys has been officially announced as of October 4th at 3am PST! Scroll down OP For more info

I wonder what it could be? What do you think?

Focal Bathys Wireless Headphones with Active Noise Cancellation

Price: $799 USD

Today, Focal has announced the Focal Bathys, Focal’s first pair of wireless headphones geared towards people who truly enjoy great sound that want to take the Focal sound on the go.

Three Different Listening Modes

  • Wireless
  • USB DAC Mode
  • Wired

Three Different Noise Cancellation Settings

  • Transparent Mode - For when you need to be aware of your surroundings
  • Soft Mode - For listening at home or at the office
  • Silent - For travel on trains, planes, buses, etc…

Does the Focal Bathys interest you? What do you think a product like this means for an industry that has traditionally stayed far away from wireless?


Oh, finally time for the Bathys ANC model to come out then?


Maybe something that channels David Clark’s Model H10-13 aviation headset?



Clearly a collab with Airbus. The Focal Horizon

An aviation headset? For those who want the brighter, cleaner Focal tone when speaking with the control tower or showing people the sights in Hawaii.

Oh my. I’m still trying to process their last major announcement.



Didn’t they have a Bentley tie-in a while back? Maybe it’s a high-end aviation tie-in.

While I am not usually the least bit interested in TWS, I have to admit Focal’s entry into that market would certainly pique my interest. :thinking:

I kinda hope not, because then I would be compelled to spend a LOT of money. :face_holding_back_tears:


This is definitely interesting to me, but I’ll probably have to wait until CanJam London next year to get a chance to listen to these :frowning:

Finally a Focal headphone with a stock cable that isn’t too stiff.


As always, someone seem to leak all things Focal early.
