New design variant – Yamaha TW-ES5A in Yamaha Racing Blue
The Japanese Yamaha Corporation is known to be active in many areas, among other things, the Unternemen is considered one of the world’s leading producers in the field of motorcycles and is since year and day in this environment also engaged in racing at the highest level. Yamaha can claim to have won world championships in almost every road racing and motocross class in recent decades.
Racing is clearly an important part of Yamaha’s DNA, the company says, and it knows how to use this to its advantage in other areas as well.
With the Yamaha Paddock Blue Collection, for example, the company offers a wide-ranging fashion collection, as well as lifestyle articles with a focus on the outdoors.
What’s new now is that the characteristic Yamaha Racing Blue is now also being used in the consumer electronics sector, namely in the area where design and the right image are decisive factors, namely headphones.
It cannot be emphasized often enough that headphones are products that not only have to convince from a technical point of view, but also correspond to the customer’s personal lifestyle.
Until now, Yamaha Music Europe GmbH offered the True Wireless In-ear headphones Yamaha TW-ES5A in red, black, pink and green, so the customer had a wide range to choose from. Now another one is added, namely Yamaha Racing Blue.
Best performance, customizable
The Yamaha TW-ES5A relies on a dynamic driver with a diameter of 6 mm, which, together with Yamaha’s in-house technologies, is supposed to provide balanced sound in everyday use. However, the newly developed fit and five different ear tips including four interchangeable fins also contribute to this, as they guarantee a secure fit and good shielding from the environment,
The signal is transmitted via Bluetooth 5.2 and with the codec aptX Adaptive Audio from the specialist Qualcomm Inc. whereby SBC and AAC are also supported. So that the music doesn’t have to be turned up louder to always hear the entire frequency range at its best, Yamaha Listening Care Technology is used. Even at low levels, an intelligent equalizer guarantees an exact tuning of the sound and thus a balanced sound where all high and low frequencies can be heard – this also protects the user’s hearing.
The in-ear headphones are equipped with high-quality microphones and Qualcomm cVc Technology (Clear Voice Capture). This suppresses background noise as well as echoes and thus guarantees clear voice transmission. This also facilitates the use of voice control solutions, be it Apple Siri under Apple iOS or Google Assistant under Google Android.
With a runtime of up to nine hours and another 25 hours with the charging case, the Earbuds last a very long time and offer enough reserves even for a longer vacation trip.
Of course, the protection against dirt, sweat and water should not be missing. The True Wirelesss in-ear headphones are IPX7 certified and can be easily cleaned after intensive workouts.
The Yamaha Headphone Control app for Apple iOS and Google Android is available to optimally adapt the Yamaha TW-ES5A to the user’s needs. First and foremost, of course, the sound setting via an equalizer is mentioned here, but also the so-called Ambient Mode, which the Yamaha TW-ES5A offers so that you are not completely cut off from the environment. This allows you to determine how much of your surroundings you can hear.
Prices and availability
The Yamaha TW-ES5A in Yamaha Racing Blue is available immediately from retailers. The suggested retail price for this design variant, as for the already available versions – black, white, pink, blue and green – is € 179,-.
Getting to the point
