With adjustable active noise cancelation (ANC) via the companion app, touch controls, Alexa integration, and Bluetooth 5.2 support, the Technics EAH-AZ60 wireless earbuds have mighty specs.

In our 4-star Technics EAH-AZ60 review, we found them to be fantastic for casual listening, creating detailed, spacious sound with all kinds of music content. Bass lovers will be satisfied with the EAH-AZ60’s low-end performance, but if you should need to adjust the frequency balance for any reason, there is a customizable EQ to manually adjust frequencies or select from a handful of well-engineered presets (Bass+, Dynamic, Treble+, Vocal) that cater to different music genres. The inclusion of Sony’s LDAC Bluetooth codec ups the ante to enjoy near-lossless audio quality when using compatible playback devices.
Technics rates battery life at 7 hours with ANC on, which is better than the AirPods Pro 2 at 6 hours. This is respectable when factoring in high volume and other features, though 'hi-res' LDAC dramatically reduces playtime to 4.5 hours. The charging case holds a maximum of 25 hours, depending how you use the buds.
When it comes to noise canceling, the EAH-AZ60 have good rather than great noise neutralization. They're not up to the standards of the best noise-canceling earbuds. Similarly, these aren't the strongest when it comes to call quality, and our review mentioned that they were serviceable for chatting in quiet settings, but muffling is a serious issue, along with the mics’ weak wind resistance. Oh, and there's no wireless charging.
At the $229 list price these sorts of comprises may sway buying decisions when considering similarly priced rivals with stronger all round performance. But at $84 (or even £139) these pale into insignificance when you consider the superb sound you get from one of the world's most iconic audio brands. Grab a pair now before it's too late!
