Features of Technics EAH-AZ60
The package meets the price level.
- Technics EAH-AZ60
- Charging case
- USB Type-C cable
Build quality meets price standard. Overall, there is a sense of luxury.
The fit is good.
I tested it by connecting it to a Cayin N6II/E02 with LDAC.
I don't know because I haven't been in crowds, but it is stable in the home. Distance tolerance is excellent, and the connection is seamless and intact even at a distance of about 5 meters. Communication tends to be choppy across obstructions, making it difficult to listen to music consistently, but the connection is maintained.
There may be a small amount of background noise, but most people probably won't notice it.
The operating interface is a touch type.

- Adjust Active Noise Cancellation
- Sound quality customization
- Firmware updates
- Checking manuals
REW Frequency Response
Sound quality description
The following review was tested on a FiiO M15 with an LDAC connection.
The Technics EAH-AZ60 has a neutral and near-flat sound signature.
Please see here for detailed reviews on sound quality.
Lows / Bass
The low frequency range of the Technics EAH-AZ60 extends relatively deep. The sense of perspective is not bad, but the resolution is not good for the price, so it does not sound three-dimensional.
Drums have excellent weight, and rumble is quite perceptible, but the deepest part of the sound is not produced, so the sense of realism is not good.
Electric bass also has plenty of blackness and good spaciousness, and is able to provide a starting point for contrast, but it lacks rawness.
Considering the price, this is an excellent bass, and heavy bass enthusiasts will be quite satisfied, but it is unlikely to satisfy true heavy bass enthusiasts. However, this could be due to my recent listening to the EarFun Air Pro 3. It sounds fake, at least to those who know what real heavy bass sounds like.
The midrange of the Technics EAH-AZ60 is very well tuned, the texture is very accurate and well localized, and the overall fidelity of the original sound is high, making it close to ideal, at least in terms of sound balance. The biggest drawback, however, is the very low level of resolution, which makes the music sound flat, lacking in three-dimensionality, and not at all lively.
Frankly, the resolution is so poor for about $150 that the sound is so flat and bland that just listening to it makes me yawn. No matter whether you listen to classical or pop music, the low resolution lacks depth of expression, and no matter how much LDAC is supported by the codec, you cannot make use of its advantages if the resolution is this low.
It is also affected by a lot of distortion in the mid and low frequencies, with a noisy feeling in the midrange, and although the midrange itself has excellent transparency, it sounds impressively lacking in transparency.
Compared to earphones like the JVC HA-AE5T, which are very good in the midrange, they sound so low-resolution and cheap that I immediately lose interest in listening to them.
Perhaps they ran out of energy to achieve such excellent sound balance, but it is a mystery why they decided to release the product with such a low-resolution sound.
Judging from my previous measurements, the low resolution is probably due to the use of a bio-cellulose diaphragm, so it would have been better to use the same graphene-coated PEEK diaphragm as the EAH-AZ70 or some other metal material. It is really regrettable.
Highs / Treble
The highs are well tuned, with very accurate localization and excellent extension.
The highs are of excellent resolution, perhaps due in part to the low distortion, and the breadth and sparkle of the hi-hats are relatively clear.
The overtone connections are also quite natural, and the sound image consistency is of an excellent level.
Sound quality general comment
The Technics EAH-AZ60 has a very good sound balance, so if you only look at the frequency response, it seems quite attractive. However, it is not worth more than $100 because the resolution is too low and the sound is cheap and lacks three-dimensionality.
Sound quality features
- Excellent sound balance
- Excellent original sound fidelity
- Good range
- Excellent texture
- Excellent localization
- Very low resolution, not worth the price
- Flat and flimsy expression
- Lacks realism of sound
The Technics EAH-AZ60 is a fully wireless earphone that offers a very good sound balance with neutral and high original fidelity. However, the sound is so low-resolution that it doesn't really bring out the best of the codec, despite its LDAC compatibility.
