Yamaha WS-B1A Bluetooth Speaker - Yamaha True Sound becomes mobile
The new Yamaha WS-B1A Bluetooth Speaker, which Yamaha Music Europe GmbH first showed as a prototype at IFA 2022, is designed to deliver fine sound in a compact package and is now available as an extension of the portable speaker range.
The new Yamaha WS-B1A Bluetooth Speaker was presented for the first time at the IFA 2022, although at that time it could only be admired as a prototype in Berlin, but now it is available, according to Yamaha Music Europe GmbH. With this, the company can present a Bluetooth speaker that is supposed to distinguish itself with compact dimensions and at the same time particularly fine performance.
Yamaha Music Europe GmbH is even talking about the presentation of the new Yamaha WS-B1A Bluetooth Speaker, saying that this solution makes the proverbial Yamaha True Sound mobile.
Yamaha WS-B1A Bluetooth Speaker – Flexible use everywhere
From the manufacturer’s point of view, one particularly important feature is that the new Yamaha WS-B1A Bluetooth Speaker is designed in such a way that it can be used particularly flexibly, not only anywhere in the house, but also outdoors around the house, and even taking it to a friend’s garden party should not be a problem.
The new Yamaha WS-B1A Bluetooth Speaker measures no more than 10.5 cm in height and 8.8 cm in depth and width, and weighs less than half a kilogram.
For the modern, living room-friendly look of the Yamaha WS-B1A Bluetooth Speaker, Yamaha Music Europe GmbH relies on various colour accents and a robust fabric cover, which is intended to ensure the best possible acoustic transparency. The black model, for example, is kept simple, whereas the carbon grey speaker with rose gold elements looks particularly stylish, according to the manufacturer’s promise.
Wall-mountable for the home, resistant to moisture and dust on the road
Due to its compact dimensions, the new Yamaha WS-B1A Bluetooth Speaker can be placed anywhere in the house, especially since it has a thread that allows it to be mounted directly on the wall.
The compact dimensions also ensure that it fits easily into any pocket and can therefore be taken anywhere. Even outdoor use is possible, because the Yamaha WS-B1A Bluetooth Speaker is IP67 certified and therefore resistant to dust and moisture.
Yamaha True Sound – Full sound despite compact dimensions
In keeping with the Yamaha True Sound strategy that Yamaha Music Europe GmbH has been pursuing for years, the new Yamaha WS-B1A Bluetooth Speaker uses a 55 mm full-range driver and two passive diaphragms to deliver a solid, round sound.
The signal transmission from the source device takes place via Bluetooth 5.0, whereby smartphones are of course the main play partners. Therefore, it is also essential that the new Yamaha WS-B1A Bluetooth Speaker has a hands-free facility, whereby Yamaha Clear Voice is supposed to ensure particularly good speech intelligibility.
It should also be mentioned that the operation of the new Yamaha WS-B1A Bluetooth Speaker is designed to be particularly simple. A total of five buttons are available here, one as a standby button and for initial pairing with the source device, four to control playback and volume.
Long battery life of up to twelve hours
After all, the new Yamaha WS-B1A Bluetooth Speaker is supposed to be able to play for up to twelve hours away from the power outlet, whereby it is primarily charged via USB-C cable. After only three hours, the battery is fully charged and the Yamaha WS-B1A Bluetooth Speaker is ready for use again.
Finally, we would like to emphasise that the manufacturer also offers an optional charging station for the new Yamaha WS-B1A Bluetooth Speaker, the Yamaha CC-T1A, which ensures that the portable Bluetooth Speaker is always ready for use.
Prices and availability
The new Yamaha WS-B1A Bluetooth Speaker is expected to be available immediately from retailers at a recommended retail price of € 119,-. Customers can choose between black, light grey and carbon grey. The optional Yamaha CC-T1A charging station costs € 29,-.
Getting to the point
The new Yamaha WS-B1A Bluetooth Speaker is designed as a particularly flexible solution for indoor use, but also as a compact companion for outdoor use. The speaker is designed in such a way that it can offer an appealing sound despite its compact dimensions and thus fully complies with the Yamaha True Sound philosophy that Yamaha Music Europe GmbH has been pursuing for years.
