Yamaha Announces New Line Of Wireless Products

Yamaha today unveiled a new line of wireless headphones that intelligently adapt and respond to listeners and their environment. Eight new models comprise the lineup, ranging from wireless earbuds, including true wireless, to active noise-canceling over-ear headphones.

The top of the line, YH-E700A wireless noise-canceling headphones, features Advanced ANC, which goes beyond standard active noise canceling by incorporating new proprietary technology from Yamaha. Unlike typical noise-canceling, which can often “color” or degrade the sound, Advanced ANC analyzes and removes background noise while keeping the music signal pure and untouched.

All models offer Listening Care, a technology that allows listeners to hear a 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.

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.
