Focal Bathys review: Travel Audiophile Bluetooth ANC Headphones

Focal is a premium hi-fi audio brand from France since 1979 and manufactures their products in France. For years, they have focused on audiophile wired headphones and achieved a good reputation among the head-fi community. They have only just released their first wireless headphones with ANC, catching up on this inevitable trend. Retailing in Singapore at S$1199, the Bathys is a great entry to appreciate Focal headphones.
