Technics EAH-AZ60 adopts dual hybrid noise cancelling technology. The principle is to recognize the sound through the microphone on the outside of the earphone and the microphone on the inside at the same time, and perform noise balance after sampling. According to experience, the noise cancelling effect of such technologies should currently belong to the top-level configuration of noise cancelling. Coupled with a personal hearing test, it can be determined that the effect belongs to the first echelon or even higher.
APP SUPPORT OF TECHNICS EAH-AZ60
As a high-end positioning true wireless, a part that cannot be ignored is the extension of the performance of the product itself. Active noise cancelling and EQ adjustment have become standard in this class. The Audio Connect App configured by Technics can be downloaded from the app market. Although the original sound effect of the factory settings is already very good, through the settings of the App, you can carry out more personalized and precise control.
In addition to EQ adjustment, the control of noise cancelling is also one of the core functions. The ANC function of conventional products can be divided into 2-3 gears. Technics EAH-AZ60 achieves the effect of stepless noise cancelling more in line with reality in this part.
Users can adapt according to their own environmental noise level, and it is just right, which is worthy of recognition. At the same time, Technics EAH-AZ60 has also been subdivided in the part of ambient sound noise cancelling. In addition to the familiar transparency mode, a vocal-focused mode has been added. Under the condition of controlling the ambient sound, the sound can be more prominent, such as the scene of commuting to the station, so as to avoid missing important information.

Personalized adjustments can be made on the App according to your habits, including adjustments to playback, fast-forward, volume, and noise cancelling modes. Moreover, for the experience of business usage habits, the space for personalized definition of the phone is also added, and it will be more convenient to use after the setting is completed.

It can transmit and stream 96KHz/24bit high-resolution audio through bluetooth, and the speed can reach up to 990kbps, which is three times the amount of ordinary bluetooth audio information.
The good news is that LDAC has now become an open technology, which can be supported by most smartphones and audio devices. In other words, Technics EAH-AZ60 can automatically improve the sound quality to the best when the playback equipment allows.
Combined with an 8mm bio-diaphragm dynamic driver, the Technics EAH-AZ60 is by no means a simple pair of true wireless earbuds. What it carries is a real HiFi experience, not as simple as playing high-quality audio sources commonly advertised in the market.
Compared with the advantages under hardware conditions, Technics EAH-AZ60 has also made full technical preparations for entering the true wireless market. According to official friends, the internal design of the cavity adopts Technics’ own unique Chamber (sound control room) and Harmonizer (harmonic generator) technology, which can achieve high-quality sound playback quality. It does not over-modify the performance of the tri-band, but strives to be real and full, to meet the demanding design and provide users with a more pleasant listening experience as much as possible.
