Following the recent reintroduction of Technics turntables—both audiophile and DJ—to Australia, Panasonic has followed up with a pair of Technics EAH-F70N wireless noise-cancelling headphones with support for LDAC/apt-X HD.

The Technics EAH-F70N headphones use 40-mm diameter dynamic drivers with a newly developed composite performance film diaphragm that’s laminated to achieve high rigidity and high internal damping. ‘The result is a powerful bass that seems to soar from the bottom depths and a spatial ambience that makes listeners feel as if they were in a concert hall,’ said Aaron Waters, Product Marketing Manager (Audio and Video) at Panasonic Australia.

Technics says it developed its own Hybrid Active Noise Cancelling circuitry for the EAH-F70N which offers three modes of noise-cancelling by combining two different systems to realise high noise-reducing performance—a feedforward system which uses a microphone mounted on the outside of the earcup, and a feedback system which uses a microphone located on the inside. ‘A three-level mode selector allows noise cancelling effects according to the situation—from the high level required on an aeroplane to a low level to reduce background noise,’ said Waters. ‘It also includes an ambient sound enhancer that lets you listen to background sounds, such as announcements made on a train or in an airport by simply touching the outside of the housing, without removing the headphones from your head.

When connected via Bluetooth, LDAC supports up to 96kHz/24 bits and apt-X HD supports up to 48 kHz/24 bits, plus the headphones can also be connected to the source via cable. Included in the control set of the Technics EAH-F70N is a button to activate voice assistance, such as Siri. ‘By speaking, you can make a phone call, select a music title to play in linkage with a music streaming service or check the weather or route guidance,’ says Waters.

The Technics EAH-F70N headphones have ‘swivel & fold’ mechanism makes them easy to carry and store and are available now in black, silver or copper. They sell for $599 (RRP).
