Yamaha's return to the over-ear noise cancelling headphone space is here! The YH-E700 headphones hit a sweet spot, both in performance, but also in price.
Offering Bluetooth 5.0 via aptX and Yamaha's own Active Noise Cancelling tech, they are fantastic for traveling (and yes my pair has been great to fly with) as well as for music listening in a noisy office (welcome to my life!!).
Not only has Yamaha nailed the fit and finish, they have also developed some innovative tech that improves the experience for the listener.
Listening Care: A select-able option via the Headphones Controller app that intelligently equalizes the sound to ensure the best tonal balance at all volume levels - meaning you don't need to crank them up to get great performance,
Listening Optimizer: The headphones measure ear shape, external noise levels entering the ear AND headphone fit every 20 seconds using built-in microphones.
This means the headphone can adapt to external noise AND the seal between the ear-cup and the head - all to ensure you're getting the best possible performance at all times.
Yamaha's ANC: A Yamaha innovation that avoids unnecessary EQ, leaving the listener with the pure audio signal... nothing more, nothing less.
Factor in a 35 hour run time (with ANC turned on), USB C charging, a travel case and the option to hardwire the headphones via an included 3.5mm cable - and you have a seriously high performing set of headphones at a great price!
