Focal Bathys review, Digitaltrends: As I bounced between the Bathys, the Sony XM5, and the Bowers and Wilkins PX7, all in wireless mode, I was struck by how much more open, airy, and spacious the Bathys sounded. By comparison, the Sony and B&W sounded closed in, almost claustrophobic, which is curious because I’ve never described either as sounding that way in the past. It took hearing the Bathys to reveal how much I’d been missing...
The Bathys also sound expertly balanced, with just a bit of added warmth in the bass, a completely transparent midrange, and some of the most articulate, accurate treble I’ve heard from a set of wireless headphones. Honestly, it was hard to believe I was listening via Bluetooth. But then I switched to the wired digital connection using the Bathys’ onboard DAC, and I realized just how much better the Bathys could sound, given a higher-quality signal.
Cnet.com: in terms of pure sound quality, the Bathys may be the best of the bunch and I particularly liked the built-in DAC and the ability to switch easily between wired and wireless modes.
