Bathys shows us where the limits of bluetooth technology seem to be. It sounds good via bluetooth.. but if you connect it via USB cable in what Focal calls the USB DAC mode, it'll show you what it's made for. Might just be the only headphone that you need, that's how good it sounds.

if you’re looking for the best sound quality you can find in the ANC space: it’s the Focal Bathys.

Wired.com:

If you’re a traveling audio nerd who wants the best-sounding, most convenient noise-canceling headphones, these are the creme de la creme. They’re easier to take with you than any high-end wired headphones, and they sound as good as many wired pairs I’ve tested that cost the same price.

Headfonics.com:

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.

It has all the styling and material quality you would expect from a Focal-designed headphone with a balanced and enjoyable tuning that places modern pop and rock to the fore.

For travel audiophiles, it represents a serious upgrade on consumer headphone choices from the likes of Sony and Bose.

Measurements

What does this mean?

The black line is something that could be called the „ideal“ curve of what a headphone should sound like. The Harman Research Group has a range of scientific studies around audio and the human perception of it - one of which was, how should a headphone sound like to be favored by a majority of people, no matter the age or other demographic variables? This result is called the Harman target.

From left to right we have the sub bass, bass, mids and then the curve finally tilts upward where the treble begins - this part of the frequency spectrum gets amplified naturally by the shape of the human ear. 

Of course, this headphone comes with an app that you can use to change the sound, but this is how it sounds out of the box. In one word: Amazing. Fantastic allrounder, that is one step up from any other bluetooth headphone on the market.
