Yamaha Introduces True Wireless Earbuds and Headphones for 2020

All 2020 Yamaha wireless headphones feature proprietary adaptive technology that allows listeners to hear full-range sound even at low volume settings. The top models include active noise cancellation.

8 New Models

Yamaha just announced eight new wireless headphones for 2020 priced from $60 to $350. The new models include three true wireless earbuds, three wireless neckband style earphones, one over-ear and one on-ear wireless headphones. All models feature new technology from Yamaha that optimizes the listening experience for each person and many feature active noise cancellation. The top models within each style contain the number 7, 70 or 700. Each step-down model decrements the model number by 2, 20, or 200.

Listening Care

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. The long-term impacts may be especially compounded by daily wear. Listening Care solves for this, encouraging lower volume listening by intelligently adjusting sound frequencies to maintain the full-range sound.

Listener Optimizer

The top models (YH-E700A, EP-E70A, TW-E7A) feature Listening Optimizer which analyzes music and background noise in real time to automatically achieve the optimum balance at a listener’s selected volume setting. Unlike alternatives that take a single measurement at one moment in time, Listening Optimizer works in real time, making ongoing measurements and subtly adjusting if the fit or wearing conditions happen to change, to ensure the best sound.

Advanced ANC

The top two models (YH-E700A over-ear headphones, EP-E70A neckband earphones) feature Advanced ANC, which goes beyond standard active noise cancelling by incorporating a new proprietary technology from Yamaha. Unlike typical noise-cancelling, which can often “color” or degrade sound, Advanced ANC analyzes 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.

“By adapting to each person and his or her surroundings, our headphones allow listeners to stay true to themselves and truly enjoy the music that shapes them.” Alex Sadeghian, director, Consumer Audio, Yamaha Corporation of America

All of the new headphones feature app control, in addition to simple controls to make phone calls, activate your favorite voice assistant and control your music with easy-to-find buttons. Each model offers a carrying case, charging cables and extended battery life between charges. Additional features and accessories vary by model.
