Focal Bathys Wireless Noise Cancelling Headphones: Video Review

The Focal Bathys are the best wireless active noise cancelling (ANC) headphone of 2022, but they come with a hefty price tag. Learn if they might be right for you.

The high-end ANC wireless headphone category is getting rather crowded in 2022; Mark Levinson, Master & Dynamic, Bowers & Wilkins, T+A, and Focal now offer $500 to $1,500 options that truly put some daylight between the best products and the ANC headphones from Sony, Bose, and Sennheiser that occupy that middle of the market. The Focal Bathys are their first wireless headphone with ANC technology and the early response has been overwhelmingly positive.

The $799 Bathys start shipping on October 14th and we were one of the first publications to receive a review pair — the wait was certainly worth it.

In this video review, eCoustics Founder, Brian Mitchell and eCoustics Sr. Headphone Editor, William Jennings discuss his in-depth review of the Focal Bathys.

Learn why we think Focal has leapfrogged the competition with its first-ever wireless active noise cancelling (ANC) headphone.

    So are Mr Jennings and your man ORT in agreement about buttons vs touch controls? I’m starting to think that way as it’s just easier to locate, learn and use. I read both of these guys over at Headfi. Thanks!
