When it comes to audio, there are few names bigger than Technics. While it might be best known for its era-defining record players, Technics has also bought its sonic expertise to wireless earbuds with the premium noise cancelling Technics EAH-AZ60 headphones and their more affordable Technics EAH-AZ40 in-ears.
Both pairs earned a well-deserved four stars from us under intense review and have just dropped to their lowest price ever on Amazon, where the brand is currently offering a limited-time sale with savings of around 20% on the EAH-AZ60 and EAH-AZ40.
£200 £160 at Amazon (save £40)
A solid choice if you're looking for a new pair of in-ears, especially with this deal. You get a design that’s smart, practical and comfortable, a decent specification that includes effective noise cancellation, and easy-to-appreciate sound quality. Available in black.
£130 £100 at Amazon (save £30)
Cheaper than the AZ60 above, these Technics wireless earbuds don't have noise cancellation. You can still expect a detailed and robust sound, decent comfort and good controls. Available in black silver and rose gold.
The Technics EAH-AZ70W face stiff competition from rival brands, but they're competitively priced and deliver effective noise-cancelling, which can be tweaked through the Technics Audio Connect companion app.
Battery life is a solid six hours, with the charging case providing an extra 12 hours. They're IPX4 splash-resistant and feature built-in Alexa voice control.
The best part? Thanks to their punchy, energetic delivery, they're entertaining to listen to. Under review, we were struck by their openness and gutsy bass but felt they didn't quite deliver at their launch price. But with a reduction of £40 bringing them down to £160 at Amazon, they are well worth considering.
Meanwhile, the more affordable Technics EAH-AZ40 also get an awful lot right – in ergonomic terms, they’re nigh-on ideal, unarguably comfortable, and have some real positives where sound is concerned, too, with detailed, robust audio. They don't have noise cancelling, but the buds have an eight-hour battery life, and the case tops that up to a healthy 25 hours. With a tidy saving of £30, these affordable earbuds are now just £100 at Amazon.
