January 27, 2022

Here’s everything you need to know about the new super-comfy Technics EAH-A800 over-ear noise-cancelling headphones.

Technics claims excellent sound quality and industry-leading noise cancelling technology for its new EAH-A800 over-ear headphones.

The headphones also boast superior call quality through four Mic Beamforming and Noise Suppression 2 Technology to clearly convey your voice to the listener.

These headphones are designed to fit comfortably over your ear with cushioned, super-soft earpads that evenly distribute pressure for a stable fit. And with Multipoint Bluetooth Connection, you can pair with multiple devices simultaneously to easily switch from PC to mobile.

The EAH-A800 ‘phones also feature ambient mode, which captures a wide range of sound from low to high frequencies, allowing you to hear external sounds naturally – perfect for when you are out and about and need to be more alert of your surroundings.

Another winning feature is the long battery life – providing approximately 50 hours of music listening time or 30 hours of talk time.

Here’s what Technics has to say about the EAH-A800 headphones:

Hear Every Detail – Premium Technics Sound Quality
Technics’ continuous pursuit of perfection and the technologies and expertise it has accumulated through hi-fi development delivers a truly moving audio experience. The newly developed 40mm dynamic driver with the free edge diaphragm within the dome ensures clear sound and deep bass with minimal distortion. The Acoustic Control Chamber accurately controls airflow to enhance the performance of the driver for precise bass and rich spatial expression. And the thin-film polymer multi-layer capacitors – a technology used in Technics’ high-grade audio amplifiers – facilitates a stable current through the audio circuitry to limit distortion and generate high-quality sound. Additionally, the EAH-A800 supports High-Resolution Audio Quality with Bluetooth?and LDAC technology delivering a wide, dynamic range of sound with fast response and high definition.

Speak with Clarity – Superior Call Quality
A total of eight mics on the left and right of the headphones play a huge role in supporting more comfortable, natural conversation. Four MEMS mics operate simultaneously to pick up your voice with superior precision. Another four mics have been developed for beamforming technology with noise reduction. They activate simultaneously from both sides to reduce surrounding noise, capture your voice three-dimensionally and activate noise-cancelling technology during calls. Our unique signal processing analyses the voice signal and suppresses surrounding noise so your voice is delivered more clearly.

Wind Noise Suppression
Wind is one factor that can adversely affect call quality, and so to ensure excellent call clarity in any environment, Technics changed its approach to microphone design to minimize wind noise. The EAH-A800 headphones use a Feed-Forward mic with small holes installed deep inside the unit to improve air resistance and minimize vibrations caused by wind. The EAH-A800 are also equipped with multiple chambers to limit air vibrations. The main mic used for speaking has been designed with a different mesh material at the front and back to control vibrations, and the windshield on the Sub Talk Mic has a top cover to prevent direct wind exposure.

Immerse Yourself in Sound – Industry-leading Noise Cancelling
Industry-leading noise cancelling allows those taking advantage of new, work-from-anywhere workstyles to immerse themselves in sound no matter the location. Through Dual Hybrid Noise Cancelling Technology, which combines two pairs of noise-cancelling functions – an analogue filter and a Feed-Back Mic, and a Feed-Forward Mic and a digital filter – noise both inside and outside the headphones can be minimized for Industry-leading noise cancelling performance.

Control the Sound Around You – Natural Ambient / Attention Mode
The EAH-A800 headphones are equipped with two modes: Natural Ambient Mode, which allows the user to pay attention to surrounding noise while listening to music or making calls, and Attention Mode, in which users can listen out for airport and train announcements, or speak to their families at home, all while listening to music. Natural Ambient Mode comprehensively captures voices and other surrounding sounds, leading to a more natural sound similar to not wearing headphones at all. It captures a wide range of sounds from low to high frequencies. Attention Mode reduces unwanted external noise to make it easier to hear people’s voices.

Bluetooth – Multipoint Pairing
Multipoint pairing allows you to be connected to two Bluetooth devices at the same time. For example, if you join a video conference on your laptop, but need to take a phone call, you can begin talking on the phone simply by touching the call button. Experience the industry-leading long battery life that provides approximately 50 hours of music listening time or 30 hours of talk time.

Comfort Fit for Your Every Move – Best Fit for the Best Sound
The EAH-A800 has been designed to ensure a comfortable fit. The 3D earpads feature a curved design to apply uniform pressure to the whole ear. The earpads are designed with memory foam material to distribute pressure and ensure a secure fit. Additionally, the inner diameter of the earpad has been enlarged to wrap around the ear. Enjoy the convenience & portability of these the headphones, designed to fit in a compact carry case for ease of use.

* The Technics EAH-A800 have an RRP of $499.99 in NZ.
