What is the design of Technics EAH-A800?

Technics EAH-A800

In terms of design, the Technics EAH-A800 headphones come with premium shapes and sizes. The joints between the headband and the earbud fit snugly and the headband adjusts according to your head position. The earpads and inner part of the headband are filled with memory foam and covered in faux leather. In conjunction with a nicely judged amount of clamping force, they make the EAH-A800 unburdensome to wear for hours on end. And the materials resist absorbing (and then returning) body heat for quite a while, too. 

Moreover, the earbuds are also filled with memory foam material. As a result, it fit comfortably over your ear with cushioned and super soft material. The earpads that evenly distribute pressure for a stable fit and with a headband that reduce pressure across your entire head. Additionally, the headphone is rotate 90 degree horizontally to perfect fit into the carrying case for easy transportation.

Furthermore, with wearing playback sensor, When the headphones are removed from your head, music stops. When they are put back on your head within 60 seconds, music resumes. Comfortable, seamless operation. However, the EAH-A800 missing the IP rating. Which help you to work in any situation like running, swimming and during raining.

How to use the onboard controls?

Though – almost all the action is on the right-hand side. The right earcup features a touch surface (of extremely limited functionality), and a physical three-part multi-function button dealing with ‘volume up/down’, ‘play/pause’, ‘skip forwards/backwards’ and ‘answer/end/reject call’. There’s also a ‘power on/off/Bluetooth pairing’ button, a USB-C input for charging and a 3.5mm analog input for hard-wired listening.

What is the sound quality of Technics EAH-A800?

The Technics EAH-A800 headphone come with a clear, immersive sound experience with a sense of range and depth. The PEEK/Polyurethane 3-Layer Diaphragm 40mm driver lets you lose yourself in smooth, detailed highlights and bass. And LDAC™ high resolution wireless audio for uncompromised sound quality. From the top of the (crisp, substantial) frequency range to the (deep, dextrous, properly controlled) bottom, the Technics are a realistic and convincing listen. Bass sounds are hefty but never overblown, and their straight-edged punctiliousness where the attack and decay of individual sounds are concerned means the song fairly motors along. 

Less accomplished designs can let the bass information drag at this song’s tempo, but not the EAH-A800. And treble reproduction is similarly alert – the easy momentum of the recording is carried along in the most unforced manner. At times it ventures this close to becoming edgy or coarse without ever quite getting there.

Moreover, the transparent mode comprehensively captures voices and other surrounding sounds, leading to a more natural sound similar to not wearing headphones at all. Captures wide range of sound from low to high frequencies.

How good is the noise cancellation of Technics EAH-A800?

The headphone features industry leading hybrid noise cancellation. It uses an analog filter with feedback mic, plus digital filter with feed-forward mic, in an attempt to minimize noise intrusion from both inside and outside the earcups. In fact, there are a total of eight mics distributed across the earcups. Technics is confident the call quality and accompanying noise suppression it’s achieved here is a match for that of any alternative design. Additionally, Attention mode reduces unwanted external noise to make it easier to hear people‘s voices. It’s perfect when you need to hear airport announcements, etc.
