True Wireless Technics EAH‑AZ80, Dual Hybrid active noise reduction

The Technics EAH‑AZ80 headphones also benefit from noise reduction technology called Dual Hybrid, which its creator does not hesitate to describe as the most efficient on the market. For one, there are four microphones per earbud to eliminate both ambient noise outside and inside the ear cups. On the other hand, the Japanese manufacturer claims to have specifically worked on active noise reduction technology, called hybrid, with digital noise processing and analog sound filtering, for a particularly effective result

For better call clarity, the microphones in each earpiece are required to fight noise, such as wind noise, and preserve the clarity of voices. A “sound beam” process called JustMyVoice is also in the works for improved speech pick-up and suppression of ambient hubbub.
