Technics is launching the new EAH-A800 Noise Cancelling Wireless Over-Ear Headphones, offering industry-leading noise cancelling technology, superior call quality and best-of-class battery life delivering up to 50 hours of listening time.

Through Dual Hybrid Noise Cancelling technology, which combines two pairs of noise cancelling functions – an analog filter and a Feed-Back Mic, and a Feed-Forward Mic and a digital filter – noise both inside and outside the headphones can be minimised for leading noise cancelling performance.

Technics changed its microphone design to minimise wind noise with the EAH-A800, offering a total of eight microphones to support a more comfortable, natural conversation.

Four MEMS microphones operate simultaneously to pick up the speaker’s voice with superior precision, while another four microphones with beamforming technology and noise reduction activate simultaneously from both sides of the headphones to reduce background noise and capture voices in three dimensions. Technics’ unique signal processing analyses the voice and suppresses surrounding noise to deliver the voice clearly.

The newly developed 40mm dynamic driver with a free edge diaphragm in the dome, and the edge part composed of different multi-layer material, ensures clear sound and deep bass with minimal distortion.

The Acoustic Control Chamber accurately controls air flow to enhance the performance of the driver for precise bass and rich spatial expression. Further, use of thin-film polymer multi-layer capacitors – a technology used in Technics’ high-grade audio amplifiers – facilitates a stable current through the audio circuit, which limits distortion and generates high-quality sound.

The EAH-A800 also supports high resolution audio quality with Bluetooth and LDAC technology, delivering a wide, dynamic range of sound with fast response and high definition. Multipoint pairing allows users to connect to two Bluetooth devices at the same time.

The headphones are equipped with two ambient sound modes: Natural Ambient Mode and Attention Mode. Natural Ambient Mode comprehensively captures a wide range of low to high frequencies that allows the user to pay attention to surrounding noise while listening to music or making calls. Attention Mode reduces unwanted external noise to make it easier to hear voices, so users can listen for announcements or speak to others while listening to music.

Designed for a comfortable fit, the 3D earpads feature a curved design to apply uniform pressure to the whole ear. The earpads are cushioned with memory foam to distribute pressure and fit securely, while a wire spring in the headband optimises pressure across the entire head.

The Technics EAH-A800 Noise Cancelling Wireless Over-Ear Headphones will be available in silver and black from mid-February for RRP $549 at selected Technics audio specialists.
