Yamaha is reissuing its in-ear headphones Yamaha TW-ES5A in Racing Blue color, introduced in June 2022, to represent the Supersport models of Yamaha’s motorcycle lineup.
Yamaha TW-ES5A Racing Blue in detail
From a purely technical point of view, the Yamaha TW-ES5A is exactly the model that had already been presented in June 2022. However, since the manufacturer’s racing motorcycles are the same color, “Blue” has now been renamed “Racing Blue”.
“Over the past few decades, Yamaha has won world championships in almost every road racing and motocross class. So racing has quickly become an important part of Yamaha’s DNA. Through the new sporty color scheme, athletes, commuters and music enthusiasts are showing their passion for the Japanese motorcycle manufacturer’s brand and team,” the manufacturer said.
The Yamaha TW-ES5A rely on dynamic 6.0mm drivers, which, combined with the installed technology, are said to provide a balanced sound. Thanks to a revised fit with five different ear tips and four interchangeable fins, the in-ears are said to sit particularly comfortably in the ear and are also suitable for sports.
Via Bluetooth 5.2, sound is also transmitted in the high-resolution Qualcomm aptX Adaptive Audio Codec, while SBC and AAC are also supported. Here, the Earbuds are even IPX7 protected and thus waterproof, which means they can be easily cleaned under water if they get dirty.
Listening Care and True Sound
The Yamaha TW-ES5A support Listening Care. The intelligent equalizer setting allows for precise tuning of the sound, providing more balance and a sound where all high and low frequencies can be heard, even at low levels.
True Sound is said to ensure that the in-ears reproduce exactly the sound that the artists intended. The microphones have been further optimized to support Qualcomm’s cVc (Clear Voice Capture) technology that simultaneously suppresses noise and echoes to improve voice quality.
The battery life of the in-ear headphones is also impressive. The headphones themselves are supposed to last up to 9 hours, and the charging case adds another 25 hours.
The sound can also be customized via the Headphone Control app. An equalizer, quick settings for Ambient Sound and Listening Care, and additional firmware updates are offered. In addition, the headphones can also control the Siri and Google Assistant voice assistants. However, the TW-ES5A do without active noise cancellation (ANC).
Price and Availability
The Yamaha TW-ES5A Racing Blue in-ear headphones are available now at an MSRP of €179.00 in stores, in addition to the already available black, white, pink, and green colors. More details can be found directly from the manufacturer.
