Yamaha TW-E3C: 99 euros
Now available in black, grey, blue, green, beige and red colours
With the TW-E3C, Yamaha introduces the third generation of its popular and affordable in-ear headphones. Like previous versions, the new model also delivers powerful, dynamic sound that perfectly adapts to the environment and use. A 6.0mm dynamic driver is installed in the ear and silicone attachments come in four sizes to ensure optimal wearing comfort. Music is now transmitted using Bluetooth version 5.2 and thanks to AAC and Qualcomm aptX Adaptive codecs, reaches the listener in the best quality. The new wireless connection also brings a significant advantage in gaming mode: when playing games, playing videos and movies, latency, that is, delays in the picture and sound, is reduced as much as possible. With up to nine hours of playtime and another 15 hours with the charging case, the earphones ensure long-lasting music enjoyment at every opportunity.
Hearing Care: Balanced sound at any volume
A low level usually means that some frequencies are less noticeable to the human ear. However, in order not to turn up the music too loud to hear the full frequency range, Yamaha has incorporated its own Listening Care technology. Yamaha has drawn on its extensive experience in sound design and prior audio products to develop this technology. In this way, Listening Care builds on YPAO Volume, which has been used successfully for home cinema sound tuning for years.
Best sound quality, even on two devices
Good speech clarity during phone calls, video calls, and virtual meetings has become increasingly important to headset users in recent years. In order to achieve the best possible result with in-ears as well, Yamaha has optimized the microphones and combined them with Qualcomm cVc (Clear Voice Capture) technology, which simultaneously suppresses noise and echo and thus ensures optimal quality of the transmitted audio track. The TW-E3C in-ear headphones can also be connected to two Bluetooth-enabled devices at the same time. This means, for example, that your smartphone and laptop are connected and when you make a call or want to play a video, you don’t have to go through the settings to change the device in question. With “surround sound,” the earbuds get another advantage from the pricier TW-E5B and TW-E7B models. This means important ambient sounds can be heard well even when music is playing and stay in focus.
Customization and ease of use
The TW-E3C comes with the free “Headphone Control” app for iOS and Android to easily operate your headphones via a mobile device. The program offers more features with several presets for different music genres, quick settings for ambient sound and listening care as well as information about firmware updates. With a 5-band equalizer and 2 user slots, the application provides the best possible conditions for customizing your preferred sound. In addition, Siri and Google Assistant voice assistants can be used with headphones. Touch surfaces are also attached to both earbuds, making music playback and volume control very easy.
