Yamaha has unveiled a brand new line of wireless headphones – four models ranging from true wireless earbuds, to active noise cancelling over-ear headphones.
All these new models feature new technology from Yamaha that optimises the listening experience for each user and intelligently adapts and responds to their environment.
The hero models in the line-up feature Listening Optimiser, which works in real time, making ongoing measurements and subtly adjusting if the fit or wearing conditions happen to change.
The top of the line, YH-E700A wireless noise-cancelling headphones (left and above), available in December, features Advanced ANC, which goes beyond standard active noise cancelling by incorporating a new proprietary technology from Yamaha. Unlike typical noise-cancelling, which can often “colour” or degrade sound, Advanced ANC analyses and removes background noise while keeping the music signal pure and untouched. For situations where a listener wants to stay aware of their surroundings or communicate with another person, these and other noise-cancelling models include an Ambient Sound mode.
All models offer Listening Care, a technology that allows listeners to hear full-range sound – from high to low frequencies – even at low volume settings. This overcomes a challenge faced by typical headphones, where low volume listening goes hand-in-hand with a pronounced reduction to certain frequency ranges, resulting in listeners cranking up the volume to levels that may affect hearing health. Listening Care encourages lower volume listening by intelligently adjusting sound frequencies to maintain the full-range sound.
All these new headphones – the TW-E7A True Wireless Noise-Cancelling Earbuds will be available later this month – feature app, phone call and music control and a voice assistant. Each model offers a carrying case, charging cables and extended battery life between charges.
The new headphones are underpinned by advanced audio platforms from Qualcomm, and James Chapman, Vice President and General Manager, Voice, Music and Wearables at Qualcomm Technologies International, said: “We are delighted to work closely with Yamaha to help deliver the rich audio experiences that consumers desire.
“This impressive portfolio line-up brings exciting new audio features and personalised listening to multiple headphone form factors, with options at many price points.”
