Panasonic launch new RZ-S500W and RZ-S300W True Wireless Headphones
Panasonic has just announced two new true wireless headphones, the RZ-S500W and RZ-S300W, with the more impressive RZ-S500W model packing what Panasonic are calling “industry-leading noise cancelling performance”. They’re achieving this by using new Dual Hybrid Noise Cancelling Technology which means combining the two currently used ANC technologies, FeedForward Noise Cancelling (FF-NC) and FeedBack Noise Cancelling (FB-NC) tech along with an Analog/Digital Processing hybrid which is said to deliver the best noise cancelling on a pair of wireless headphones available on the market today.
Both new pairs of headphones also ensure reliable Bluetooth connection by integrating the Bluetooth antenna and touch sensor inside the control system which is said to maximise the use of the antenna. Also, like Apple’s Airpods and Sony’s WF-1000XM3 wireless earbuds, the new RZ-S500W and RZ-S300W headphones also support independent reception systems for the right and left earbuds.
Speaking of which, both the RZ-S500W and RZ-S300W also support Bluetooth 5.0 and Amazon’s Alexa voice assistant along with being IPX4 splash resistant. When it comes to battery life, they should run for five hours, but with the charging case, which connects to an outlet via USB-C, you can extend that to 20 hours.
Users will also be able to download the free “Panasonic Audio Connect ” app which will allow them to:
- Adjust noise cancelling and external sound capture levels
- Customize preferred sound modes
- Confirm remaining battery levels
- Locate the headphones
Both set of wireless headphones arrive in June with Irish pricing still TBC.
