Thanks to the support of Bluetooth aptXTM Adaptive, the option for multipoint connection (two devices) as well as IPX5 standard, the new, compact in-ears TW-E3C from Yamaha are supposed to be ready for everyday life. Different sized silicone earpieces aim to provide for personal adjustments. Yamaha states a playback time of around 9 hours, and the charging case is supposed to provide another 15.
Music is transmitted via Bluetooth 5.2 and the codec AAC; as well as with drastically reduced latency according to Yamaha. "Listening Care", a kind of advanced loudness function, is supposed to ensure balanced sound from the 6-millimeter drivers at any volume. A 5-band equalizer for sound control is available via the "Headphone Control" app, buttons for playback control and level are provided on the earbuds themselves, and voice support via Siri or Google Assistant is also possible.
"Ambient Sound" aims to make such sounds better perceivable, while echoes are still cancelled out, for example. The integrated microphones are said to be optimized for telephone use in terms of speech intelligibility. Yamaha's new earbuds TW-E3C are available in the colors black, gray, blue, green, beige and red for around €100 MSRP in Germany.
