Technics expands its portfolio of next generation True Wireless earbuds with the new compact and lightweight EAH-AZ40M2

The all new EAH-AZ40M2 redefine superior audio with next-gen upgrades in a compact design

Today, Technics announced the launch of its new compact and lightweight earbuds, the EAH-AZ40M2. Joining the recently released EAH-AZ80 and EAH-AZ60M2, the EAH-AZ40M2 complete the brand’s True Wireless portfolio, offering superb sound quality with the addition of Active Noise Cancelling Technology and unparalleled comfort for home, work and travel.

Technics tapped into its deep expertise as the legendary audio brand known for making pure sound quality to deliver its next generation of earbuds. Its engineers focused on every aspect of sound – drivers, acoustics, mechanical structure, and digital signal processing – to ensure you can hear every song or phone call with impressive clarity.

The EAH-AZ40M2 earbuds seamlessly integrate into any on-the-go lifestyle. They offer the ability to shift from music to active noise-cancelling without interruption, seamless switching between up to three devices with Bluetooth® Multipoint Connection, and a variety of customisation settings.

Key callouts of the EAH-AZ40M2 are:

  • A 6mm driver delivers great sound quality thanks to Technics’ 55 years of audio experience.
  • New Active Noise Cancelling Technology and superior sound in a compact and lightweight design.
  • Bluetooth® Multipoint Connection allows simultaneous connection to three devices.
  • Beamforming technology delivers clear conversations.

The EAH-AZ40M2 are the most compact and lightweight earbuds in the new range, available in a choice of stylish black, silver or rose gold. Technics silicone earpieces are included to ensure an excellent fit for high-quality sound and superior insulation. You can choose from four different earpiece sizes, ranging from extra small to large, so they will remain comfortably in place.

The very compact and portable cradle also features a high-quality finish and engraved Technics logo for a premium feel.  The EAH-AZ40M2 earbuds are priced at $259RRP and will be available in Australia in mid-July from selected Technics audio specialist retailers.

Audio Features

Technics Signature Clear Sound – Now Wireless

The earbuds feature a 6mm driver that delivers clear sound with a sense of range and depth. Despite the compact design, the EAH-AZ40M2 houses an acoustic control chamber to optimise air flow for natural sounding vocals and other mid ranges, a powerful bass, and a harmoniser to smooth out trebles for a dynamic range of sound with less distortion. The result is rich, immersive, and expansive sound with smooth and detailed highlights. High-Resolution Audio Quality with Bluetooth® and LDAC technology[i] delivers a wide dynamic range with fast response and high definition.

Immersive Noise Cancelling

The EAH-AZ40M2 improves upon its predecessor, the EAH-AZ40, by adding Technics’ Active Noise Cancelling Technology, allowing full immersion in music or work without outside noise distraction. A digital software filter and feedforward mic effectively suppresses noise from outside the earbuds to deliver high levels of noise cancelling. Noise cancelling levels can vary from person to person due to differences in ear shape and other factors. Users can try the four different sizes of included earpieces, ranging from extra small to large, to find their perfect fit.

Smart Features

Simultaneously Connect to 3 Devices with Bluetooth® Multipoint Connection

Connection is key when dialling in on-the-go and managing meetings, calls, and music across multiple devices. The EAH-AZ40M2 support multipoint connections with up to three Bluetooth® devices simultaneously, allowing users to switch between sources seamlessly.

Beamforming Technology for Clear Conversation

The EAH-AZ40M2 uses two MEMS mics to actively isolate your voice and reduce surrounding noise with beamforming technology for clear calls, even in noisy environments or while working from home. A total of four mics – two on each ear – play a significant role in supporting more comfortable, natural conversation over the phone.

Single Bud Operation

The EAH-AZ40M2 can be operated freely when using only the left or right earbud. Within the Technics Audio Connect App, you can adjust the touch and hold, single, double, and triple tap actions (such as volume up/down, skip forward/back, ambient or noise cancelling mode on/off) to suit personal preferences. You can even assign specific actions to one or the other earbud. Being able to set up your earbuds the way you want greatly enhances personalisation options, especially when you only want to use a single earbud.

Ambient Sound Modes

The EAH-AZ40M2 is equipped with unique ambient sound modes that can be set to either “Natural Ambient” or “Attention” mode. Natural Ambient Mode captures all surrounding noise, allowing you to listen to music or talk on the telephone while paying attention to your surroundings. Attention Mode captures sounds in the human voice frequency range, ensuring you can hear human voices nearby, such as announcements at the airport or a family member’s voice at home, while reducing other, unwanted external noises.

Long Battery Life

The EAH-AZ40M2 can keep going for as long as you do, even with noise cancelling. These compact earbuds support 7 hours on a single charge, with a total charge of up to 24 hours in the compact carrying case. With active noise cancelling on, they support 5.5 hours of music playback, with a total of 18 hours in the cradle.

Smart Features: Customisation via App, Water Resistance (IPX4)

The Technics Audio Connect App makes it easy to configure and control the EAH-AZ40M2, offering voice assistant compatibility[ii] and customisation of sound mode settings. A check battery function, super bass equaliser, and the ability to toggle between voice and sound effect guidance are new settings offered in the app.

The EAH-AZ40M2 has water-resistant performance that’s in line with the IPX4 standard, so they will remain unharmed when splashed with water from any direction. Alexa is also built-in to the EAH-AZ40M2.
