Focal Bathys Dune headphones

Haute couture comes to headphones in the sumptuous shape of Focal Bathys Dune, from French audio specialist, Focal. These luxury wireless headphones can be tailored to your hearing, so you enjoy their acclaimed comfort and audio quality even more. Crafted from fine materials, including leather and magnesium, and with matching carry case and cables, Focal Bathys Dune is a clear cut above an ordinary pair of headphones.

The new Dune finish and sound tuning – based on the Mimi hearing test – join an award-winning combination of performance and design. Benefiting from Focal’s 40+ years expertise, Bathys delivers a pure sound either wirelessly via Bluetooth or wired if you prefer – when you can enjoy true high-resolution audio.

The headphones’ exceptional sound is enhanced by perfect soundproofing: the noise-cancelling technology includes an optimised ‘Silent’ mode for journeys in noisy environments (planes, trains, etc.) and a ‘Soft’ mode to help users concentrate at home. There is no shortage of other features, either: voice assistants, adjustable EQ, 30-hour battery life (5 extra hours available in 15 minutes thanks to its fast charging function), and much more.

Not a fan of sand? Focal Bathys is also available in a Black Silver colourway.
