Technics EAH-A800 can match Bose with a whopping 50 hours of battery life

Technics may be better known for making fancy turntables, but it would be foolish to ignore the headphones if they included the new EAH-A800.

With the goal of worrying the likes of Bose and Sony, Technics put great emphasis on noise cancellation with a dual hybrid system that uses four microphones in each ear cup. There’s also a Natural Ambient Mode and Attention Mode, which means you should be in almost complete control of what you’re doing and not hear anything when you have them on. Beamforming and noise cancellation technology also ensures that you can be heard when you talk to them on the phone.

Inside, you get newly developed 40mm dynamic drivers and acoustic control chambers that give you a “clear, immersive sound experience with a sense of range and depth,” according to Technics. In non-audiophile language, that means they should sound pretty good. They also support high resolution 24-bit / 96kHz audio using the LDAC bluetooth codec.

The battery life is a very impressive 50 hours, so you don’t have to worry about turning them on every night, and they come with all the bells and whistles you’d expect from a pair of high-end cans: wear sensors, multipoint pairing, an app to tweak of EQ and ANC and support for your phone’s voice assistant.

The Technics EAH-A800 will be available in black or silver for 299 euros from the beginning of February.
