Yamaha TW-E3B – True Wireless Earbuds with Yamaha Listening Care

The Yamaha TW-E3B is the latest generation of True Wireless in-ear headphones from Yamaha Music Europe GmbH. Once again, these headphones are supposed to offer a particularly fine sound and a long battery life.

Yamaha Music Europe GmbH describes the new Yamaha TW-E3B as in-ear headphones in the most compact form, whereby it is a matter of so-called True Wireless Earbus, which come up with a number of exciting features. These serve first and foremost a particularly fine sound as well as easy handling.

In addition, the new Yamaha TW-E3B is also said to be characterized by a long battery life and is even equipped for adverse weather conditions.

Yamaha TW-E3B – The new generation

Yamaha Music Europe GmbH entered the flourishing market segment of headphones surprisingly late, at least with a wide range of products. Only last year, they presented a corresponding offensive, whereby they presented the Yamaha TW-E3A, among others. The now presented Yamaha TW-E3B is, very obviously, the latest generation of these True Wireless Earbuds.

The new generation relies on the virtues of the predecessor, but refined essential features, and also relies on a wide range of colors to appeal to even more customers.

Thus, the new Yamaha TW-E3B should also be able to come up with excellent sound, whereby it is quite crucial that one can make an adjustment to the appropriate environment here. But more about that in a moment…

High-quality driver in compact housing for Yamaha True Sound

It is amazing that the developers packed a driver with a diameter of 6 mm in the new Yamaha TW-E3B, after all, this should be very compact and it also has to accommodate the complete electronics as well as the battery.

Compared to the previous model, Yamaha Music Europe GmbH has even managed to reduce the housing volume by 25 percent and thus make the in-ear headphones even more compact. Especially for smaller ears, the new design ensures a tighter and more comfortable fit, the company says.

A nevertheless generously designed driver is essential to be able to reproduce a balanced reproduction over a wide frequency range with corresponding dynamics.

The signal transmission takes place with the Yamaha TW-E3B naturally over Bluetooth, whereby one sets on Bluetooth 5,0 of the specialist Qualcomm and here apart from the loss-impaired SBC also the Codeces AAC as well as aptX for a rendition with approximately “CD quality” to guarantee.

Yamaha Listening Care Technology

The new Yamaha TW-E3B also relies on a special DSP-based signal processing, which focuses on the so-called Yamaha Listening Care Technology. This is used to adjust the playback to the respective situation, so that you do not have to increase the level to always enjoy an appealing sound over the entire frequency range. Even at low volumes, a balanced sound with details in the trebles and solid bass is supposed to be achieved. This not only protects the batteries, but above all the user’s hearing.

For the Yamaha Listening Care Technology, the developers were able to fall back on a technology that was originally conceived for the AV segment, namely the Yamaha YPAO room calibration and correction, and specifically the Yamaha YPAO Volume.

High wearing comfort and equipped for all weather conditions

Even though the Yamaha TW-E3B does not have active noise cancellation, external noise should still be effectively attenuated. This is ensured by the special ergonomic design with different earpieces, which, by the way, are also crucial for an optimal sound image. Four pieces, made of silicone, are included with the Yamaha TW-E3B.

By the way, the Yamaha TW-E3B is IPX5 certified, so it can withstand adverse weather conditions without any problems. It is also resistant to dust and sweat, and can also be easily cleaned if necessary.

Listens to the word…

Well, not the headphones themselves, of course, but they not only function as a hands-free device, but can also be used for voice control via the integrated microphones, be it Apple Siri or Google Assistant.

In addition, redesigned control buttons are supposed to provide intuitive control directly on the earbuds, and of course an app, the Yamaha Headphone Controller App for Apple iOS and Google Android, is also part of the basic equipment of the new Yamaha TW-E3B.

Long battery runtime

The manufacturer claims six hours of battery life for the new Yamaha TW-E3B, with the included carrying case acting as a powerbank, allowing for three additional charges away from the wall outlet.

The new Yamaha TW-E3B is said to be available immediately from retailers, with customers able to choose between black, gray, blue, green, purple and pink finishes. The recommended retail price is stated by the manufacturer at €99.

Getting to the point

The new Yamaha TW-E3B builds on the success of the Yamaha TW-E3A, but has been improved again in quite essential features. Thus, these True Wireless Earbuds are a remarkable 25 percent smaller than the direct predecessor, but still have a high-quality driver, a DSP-based signal processing with Yamaha Listening Care Technology, as well as a quite remarkable battery life of six hours.
