Noise-cancelling earphones offer a posh way of sticking your fingers in yours ears without looking overtly rude, so in the spirit of being kinder to everyone we're fully behind the new true wireless
buds from Technics
Featuring the same Dual Hybrid Noise Cancelling Technology system, the Technics
EAH-AZ70W (£239) and Panasonic
RZ-S500W (£169) models use Feedforward and Feedback Noise Cancelling that captures sounds on the inside and outside the earphones.
Both feature near-identical specs – voice assistant support, touch controls, an ambient
sound mode, an IPX4 splash-proof rating, and stable Bluetooth
connectivity owing to a Left-Right Independent Signalling System for each bud
– so why the price difference?
In short, 'The Technics
Sound' delivered by large 10mm dynamic drivers with graphene-coated diaphragms.
An Acoustic Control Chamber in each bud
has also been designed to control air
flow and balance sound frequencies.
