Audio46's Opinion

There’s some serious sub-bass going on here, and the bass has some significant power. At the same time, it feels tastefully balanced and avoids creeping into the higher frequencies. And in general, the bass seems a little more disciplined than it does on competing brands. It sounds as rich as it does clean and detailed. Acoustic instruments feel relatively natural and not overly saturated.

3D Sound Field with head tracking

With traditional headphone listening, sound is “localized” inside of the listener’s head. While this is enjoyable, it lacks the realism and immersion of the real world where sound comes at us from all around. 3D Sound Field transforms stereo sound into three-dimensional listening experiences; it pulls the sound out of your head and puts you into a sonic space of your choosing.

3D Sound Field is accompanied by dynamic head tracking, employing a gyroscope built into the headphones. As your head turns, the sound stays oriented as it would in real life, which further enhances the realism of the experience.

While 3D Sound Field works with any stereo audio content from virtually any source, it especially enhances watching movies and videos on mobile devices, providing cinema-like sound where the dialogue comes from the screen, while ambience, sound effects and music surround you. It also puts you into an acoustic environment, so it sounds like you're there - at a movie theater, concert hall or outdoor arena.

Choose from seven different listening modes, to tailor the experience to your content. Watching a movie? Pick "Cinema" mode. A concert video? Try "Outdoor Live."  

Advanced ANC

Active noise cancelling has a reputation for losing low-frequency signals during music playback. Advanced ANC takes a new approach, suppressing ambient noise without applying any processing to the music signal.

Using internal microphones and a new, unique algorithm from Yamaha, the headphones separate signal processing of background noise and music. The headphones analyze the noise collected by the internal microphones and calculate what should be removed from the playback music signal, so that only noise is erased. This means no unnecessary processing of the music signal, preserving the purity of the music.

Listening Care

With typical headphones, low-volume listening goes hand-in-hand with a pronounced reduction of certain frequency ranges, resulting in listeners cranking up the volume to levels that may affect long-term hearing health.

Listening Care solves for this, encouraging lower-volume listening by intelligently adjusting sound frequencies to maintain the full-range sound, allowing you to hear every note and not miss a beat. Select models feature enhanced functionality, intelligently analyzing music and background noise in real time to automatically and adaptively achieve the best balance at a listener’s selected volume setting.

Listening Optimizer

The size and shape of each person's ears and head are uniquely different – as are the acoustics and surroundings they find themselves in each day – which greatly impacts the way sound is interpreted.

Listening Optimizer utilizes microphones to make constant measurements (every 20 seconds) and advanced processing to analyze factors such as seal and air leakage. Playback is optimized in real time to correct the difference between the source and the actual listening condition, delivering a sound customized to the individual listener.

Ambient Sound

Listening through headphones or earphones helps to block out the world and immerse yourself in your music or audio. However, blocking out the world may also mean blocking out important noises, such as an ambulance siren, car horn or public transit announcement. Such important sounds may be necessary for you to avoid a potential accident or ensure you arrive at your destination on time.

The Ambient Sound mode uses built-in microphones to capture external sounds, presenting them in the background of your audio content, keeping you fully aware of your surroundings.
