The Technics EAH-A800 Impresses With 50-hour Battery Life, LDAC Support & More
Updated: Mar 26, 2022
The Technics EAH-A800 headphones don’t just look good, they’re incredibly impressive all-rounders too.
The first thing you’ll notice is the astonishing battery life. The headphones lasts up to 50 hours with both active noise cancellation and AAC turned on. This means that even if you’re using the headphones for around 6 hours a day, it’ll last at least a full week before you have to recharge them. Not only that, a quick 15-minute recharge provides 10 hours of juice, so there’s really no need to worry about the headphone running out of battery while you're on the go.
Additionally, these are on Bluetooth 5.2, which means that connectivity is pretty much rock solid, and there’s also support for SBC, AAC and LDAC, which means audiophiles can be rest assured that they’ll be able to stream music with uncompromised sound quality.
Here's more on why the EAH-A800 boasts a superior sound quality. You get a good amount of impactful bass, with clear mids and surprisingly forward vocals. The treble is also on point, providing adequate energy and brightness. The soundstage is also surprisingly wide, allowing instruments and vocals to have a distinct place in the mix, while still blending together harmoniously.
Powered with LDAC support, these headphones are a pretty great choice for audiophiles who not only want good sound, but also additional benefits such as long battery life and ANC.
Speaking of which, the ANC on these are exceptionally powerful. Not only is it able to drown out lower pitched noises effectively, even something that’s a little higher pitched like the clacking of a mechanical keyboard is pretty much unnoticeable when music is playing at a reasonable volume.
There’s also multipoint connectivity with the EAH-A800, which means even if you are connected to your music player or laptop, it’ll automatically switch to your phone if a call comes in.
And as for microphone quality, it's great. There are a total of eight microphones in the headphones and there’s really good wind and background noise reduction, which means you can use these for calls even if you’re out and about.
As for the form factor, the headphones are designed to fit super comfortably for everyday use. Although they are slightly heavier than other headphones at around 298 grams, it still sits very nicely on the head, with no pinching at the crown. The clamping force is also very light, which means that there’s no discomfort at the jaw area.
At $499, these are premium audiophile headphones that are more than worth the money for what you're getting. The Technics EAH-A800 headphones come in black and silver, and can be purchased at the official Panasonic e-commerce platforms on Lazada, Qoo10 and Shopee, or at ConnectIT, SAM Audio and Zeppelin.
