LAS VEGAS, Jan. 6, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Technics is proud to announce at CES the EAH-AZ70W true wireless headphones, addressing the growing demand for high-quality true wireless headphones with premium sound experience and noise cancelling performance.
The EAH-AZ70W headphones achieve an ideal listening experience by combining superior sound technologies with compact size and light weight design. In addition, the new headphones feature Dual Hybrid Noise Cancelling Technology, creating an immersive environment ideal for the on-the-go listener.
Other enhancements include a newly developed dynamic driver that uses a graphene-coated PEEK diaphragm with a 10-mm diameter and an acoustic control chamber, which optimizes the airflow generated from the driver unit and creates a clear and vast sound space.
Newly Developed 10-mm Driver Unit and Original Acoustic Design
To achieve the same high-quality sound of wired headphones without sacrificing the convenience of a true wireless in-ear headphone, a new and improved dynamic driver unit has been built into the EAH-AZ70W. The graphene-coated PEEK material used for the diaphragm of the new dynamic driver enables transparent, high-pitched and clear middle sound ranges. The airflow generated from the diaphragm can be accurately controlled via the original acoustic control chamber on the rear part of the driver unit.
Dual Hybrid Noise Cancelling Technology
The EAH-AZ70W headphones are equipped with Dual Hybrid Noise Cancelling Technology, combing feedforward (FF) and feedback (FB) methods as well as digital and analogue processing. The digital and analogue controls work together to minimize noise inside and outside of the headphones, so listeners can immerse themselves in the music without interference.
The EAH-AZ70W’s compact body, touch sensor and Bluetooth antenna deliver connection stability and convenient compatibility with smart devices. In addition, its simultaneous L/R reception method offers interruption-free performance and high-quality sound.
Excellent Call Sound Quality
Its high-performance MEMS microphone minimizes wind and other background interference, enabling outstanding noise cancellation and call quality performance. Furthermore, its beam forming technology enables efficient voice transmission during phone calls.
Ambient Sound Mode
Its simple touch sensor allows users to switch between Ambient Sound Mode, Noise Cancelling Mode or Off to adjust the listening experience based on preference or environment.
IPX4 Splash-proof*2 Compact and Lightweight Design
Its compact, lightweight, rounded body is designed for comfortable long-term wear. In addition, it features a splash-proof performance** equivalent to IPX4. The dual-color, molded earpieces provide an excellent fit and the high sound insulation contributes to the sound quality.
The EAH-AZ70W is available in black or silver with a matching charging cradle that fits in the palm of your hand and will be at retail in June 2020.
When fully charged, the battery provides six hours of continuous playback (when the noise cancellation is turned ON). In addition, the charging cradle battery provides a total of 18 hours of playback, allowing users to listen for long periods of time without worrying about battery capacity.
