Technics unveils remastered EAH-AZ40M2 earbuds with superior sound quality

In a stride towards redefining superior audio, Technics has announced the launch of its newly remastered earbuds, the EAH-AZ40M2. This latest addition to the brand’s True Wireless portfolio is a compact and lightweight design that packs a punch with Active Noise Cancelling Technology and superior sound quality, making it an ideal companion for home, work, and travel.

Technics, a legendary audio brand with 55 years of sound experience, has leveraged its deep expertise to deliver this next generation of earbuds. The engineers have meticulously focused on every aspect of sound – drivers, acoustics, mechanical structure, and digital signal processing – to ensure crystal clear clarity in every song or phone call. The earbuds offer seamless switching between up to three devices with an industry-first Bluetooth® Multipoint Connection, and a variety of customization settings, making them a perfect fit for any on-the-go lifestyle.

The EAH-AZ40M2 earbuds, priced at $169.99, will be available on, Best Buy, and Amazon. They feature a 6mm driver that delivers clear sound with a sense of range and depth. Despite their compact design, these earbuds house an acoustic control chamber that optimizes air flow for natural-sounding vocals and other mid-ranges, a powerful bass, and a harmonizer to smooth out trebles.

This results in a rich, immersive, and expansive sound with smooth and detailed highlights. The earbuds also support High-Resolution Audio Quality with Bluetooth and LDAC technology, delivering a wide dynamic range of sound with fast response and high definition. The EAH-AZ40M2 improves upon its predecessor, the EAH-AZ40, by adding Technics’ Active Noise Cancelling Technology, allowing users to fully immerse themselves in their music or work without outside noise distraction.

The EAH-AZ40M2 supports multipoint connections with up to three Bluetooth devices simultaneously, allowing users to switch between sources seamlessly. They also use two MEMS mics to actively isolate your voice and reduce surrounding noise with beamforming technology for clear calls, even in noisy environments or while working from home. The earbuds offer unique ambient sound modes that can be set to either “Natural Ambient” or “Attention” mode. Natural Ambient Mode captures all surrounding noise, allowing users to listen to music or talk on the telephone while paying attention to their surroundings. Attention Mode captures sounds in the human voice frequency range, ensuring users can hear human voices nearby while reducing other, unwanted external noises. The EAH-AZ40M2 boasts a long battery life, supporting 7 hours on a single charge, with a total charge of up to 24 hours in the compact carrying case. With active noise cancelling on, they support 5.5 hours of music playback, with a total of 18 hours in the cradle. The Technics Audio Connect App makes it easy to configure and control the EAH-AZ40M2, offering voice assistant compatibility and customization of sound mode settings. The earbuds are also water-resistant, in line with the IPX4 standard, meaning they can withstand splashes of water from any direction.

The EAH-AZ40M2 earbuds are designed for all-day comfort. They are more compact and lightweight than their predecessors, the EAH-AZ80 and EAH-AZ60M2, and come with silicone earpieces in four different sizes, ranging from extra small to large, to ensure a perfect fit for the best sound. The earbuds are available in black, silver, and rose gold. Technics, owned by the Panasonic Corporation, has been a leader in hi-fi audio products since 1965. The brand’s constant strive for innovation and excellence has resulted in countless legendary hi-fi components, many of which have set new standards in the audio world.
