Technics EAH-AZ60 and EAH-AZ40: these new TWS headphones promise up to 7 hours of autonomy and support for LDAC
Technics is launching today. The Panasonic company has introduced two high-end completely wireless headphones, the Technics EAH-AZ60 y los Technics EAH-AZ40. The most powerful are the first, as they have active noise cancellation technology and LDAC.
Technics has confirmed that both headphones will hit the market in October. The AZ60 will be available in silver and black for 229,99 euroswhile the AZ40 will arrive in silver, black and rose gold for 149,99 euros. Once the presentations are made, we are going to get to know them better.
Similar, but not the same
Both headphones are really similar on the outside, but on the inside things change. So let’s start with the similarities. Both headphones have IPX4 water resistance, so they resist splashes and can be used while doing sports.
It also includes different sets of silicone pads so that we can use the ones that suit us best, although it is true that AZ60s include seven sizes and AZ40s include four. In any case, and always on paper, both alternatives should be sufficient for most users.
On the other hand, the headphones have the JustMyVoice technology. This function uses the speech detection microphones to record speech when speaking and the two MEMS microphones to capture speech and reduce surrounding noise. The idea is that our voice is heard more clearly during calls, although they will have to be tried to clear up doubts.
And speaking of listening to the voice, both models have microphones with small holes inside. That way, Technics assures, vibrations caused by air are minimized and they facilitate “conversation without noise from the wind.”
Finally, it should be noted that both headphones have two attention modes: natural environment and care. The first captures all the noise in the environment, while the second focuses on the voice and emphasizes it. In theory, this should allow the user to hear the voice of their callers more clearly in noisy environments.
So far the similarities. Now we go with the differences. The Technics EAH-AZ60 have active noise cancellation and they are compatible with LDAC, an audio codec that allows a transfer rate of 990 kbps (via Bluetooth, LDAC supports up to 96 KHz / 24 bits. In that sense, it should be noted that the EAH-AZ60 have eight microphones on the left ear cups and right.
The next important difference is in autonomy. Although at the moment Technics has not revealed the amperage or the case or the headphones, it does ensure that the AZ60s are capable of offering up to seven hours with the ANC and up to 24 hours when charging the case. The AZ40s, meanwhile, promise up to 7.5 hours on a single charge and up to 25 hours with the case. Both have fast charging.
