55 years ago, Panasonic sought to change the audio space forever with the introduction of its Technics branch. Over the past five decades, the brand has held its own against the genre’s foremost competitors, introducing a variety of turntable-focused peripherals, parts, and accessories. Now, the outfit has announced its first foray into the world of wireless headphones with the EAH-AZ70W — a sleek, minimalist model with active noise cancelation.
Not only does the truly-wireless offering bring a sleek, graphene-coated persona to the table for interested buyers, but it’s also been gifted with a unique acoustic control chamber, allowing users to revel in the company’s iconic sound, without having to lug around a cumbersome amplifier/speaker setup. To ensure unprecedented pairing with your device of choice, Technics has integrated a proprietary Bluetooth antenna design into the EAH-AZ70W, resulting in less drop-off, static, and connection issues, while a hybridized noise cancellation system has been contracted to keep your music and voice calls as audible as ever. Each example will boast a middle-of-the-road 6.5-hour battery life but can be boosted to a much more attractive 19.5-hour listening time, courtesy of the pair’s complementary charging case. Head to Technics’ website to pick up a pair of your own for $250.
