Technics has released the EAH-AZ70W True Wireless Earphones – delivering superb acoustics, outstanding noise cancellation and design excellence to build on the reputation of this premium brand.
Aaron Waters, Product Marketing Manager – Audio and Video, Panasonic Australia said: “There is a strong market demand for true wireless audio. These Technics earphones offer stunning capabilities including our dual hybrid noise cancelling technology, rich audio, and long battery life as well as a premium look.”
The EAH-AZ70W is available in stylish black or silver. The compact circular earphones echo the Technics elegance in design with premium touches such as a high-grade spin treatment on the control area, and a matching lightweight aluminum charging case with an upper surface hairline and engraved Technics logo.
The Technics EAH-AZ70W will be available in Australia from mid-July 2020 via selected audio specialist retailers, priced at $449 RRP.
10-mm Diameter Driver Unit and Original Acoustic Design
The large diameter 10-mm dynamic driver delivers a broad soundstage with rich bass, while the graphene-coated PEEK diaphragm reduces vibration for clear, elegant sound. The Acoustic Control Chamber is precisely designed to control air flow and optimise the balance of each frequency. An expansive sound is generated with smooth, detailed highs and tight, articulate bass.
Dual Hybrid Noise Cancelling Technology
The EAH-AZ70W employs two systems to deliver an impressive noise cancelling effect for the True Wireless category. To allow listeners to fully engage with their music, unwanted ambient noise is minimised.
Dual Hybrid Noise Cancelling incorporates Feedforward Noise Cancelling (FF-NC) and Feedback Noise Cancelling (FB-NC) – using microphones to respectively combat noise from outside and inside the ear, along with a combination of analogue and digital processing to cancel noise effectively.
Stable Bluetooth Connection
Conventional true wireless headphones can cause brief interruptions of Bluetooth connection in crowded locations. The EAH-AZ70W offers extremely reliable Bluetooth connectivity to ensure uninterrupted listening.
The earphones’ small size is achieved with the integration of a Bluetooth antenna and a touch sensor inside the control section; while improved connection stability is realised by Technics’ proprietary design, which maximises antenna performance even in a small product cabinet.
The Left-Right Independent Signalling System maintains a stable connection with the correct sound balance between right and left channels, so listeners can enjoy an immersive content experience in a range of environments.
Excellent Call Sound Quality
The EAH-AZ70W is designed for clear call quality. High-performance MEMS microphones use a unique built-in labyrinth cabinet structure to suppress wind noise and improve noise cancelling performance. In addition, a beam-forming technology enables voices to be efficiently delivered while suppressing ambient noise.
Ambient Sound Mode
Simply tapping the touch sensor switches to Ambient Sound mode when the user wants to hear external sounds such as voices while listening to music and without taking the earpiece out. By tapping the sensor for two seconds, the user can switch between “Noise Cancelling”, “Ambient Sound” and “OFF”.
The rounded body fits comfortably in the ears for extended use. A massive amount of 3D ear data was used to optimise the design of the angle and length of the sound ports. The EAH-AZ70W features a splash-proof performance equivalent to IPX4[i].
When fully charged, the battery provides up to 6.5 hours of continuous playback (when noise cancellation is turned ON). In addition, the charging cradle can be fully charged twice, allowing up to 19.5 hours of playback.
Voice Assistant Compatible (Siri®/ Google Assistant™/ Alexa)
Voice assistant smartphone functions such as Siri and Google Assistant can be activated by operating the earphones’ touch sensor. Amazon Alexa can be activated with the Alexa mobile app, and later this year, will also be available via the touch sensor[ii].
