Be transported to the front row of your favourite music performance or become immersed in the latest movie. The YH-L700A draws on unrivalled experience in acoustic and electric sound technologies to deliver brilliant performances – no matter the type of content.
Nobody Knows Sound Better Than Yamaha: As the world’s leading manufacturer of musical instruments and audio equipment, Yamaha is uniquely positioned to express every sound as the artist intended. Sound that delivers incredibly detailed and accurate timbre in each note. Sound experienced by the emotive contrast between stillness and motion. Sound that reproduces a sense of atmosphere as if you’re actually there. From music and movies to immersive gaming experiences, there’s a reason behind every sound. It’s time to discover True Sound.
Yamaha YH-L700A Over-Ear Bluetooth Noise Cancelling Headphones
Tonal Balance: Every ear hears the world differently. Yamaha expresses sound as the artist intended. Reproducing sonic elements such as vocals, instruments, TV dialogue and sound effects at the right pitch requires both passion and precision. Yamaha accomplishes this through tonal balance, enriching harmonies and recreating musicality to help you hear sounds you couldn’t hear before.
Dynamics: Music, at its core, is a connection of one sound to another. They form phrases, with rests added in for alternating expressions of power and delicacy. Yamaha pursues dynamics in sound to contrast the stillness and motion. It’s not just the powerful sounds – there’s beauty in the breaks.
Sound Image: The most loved compositions and performances make you feel like you’re there – whether it’s the front row of a live concert or the best seat in a theatre. Yamaha approaches spatial expression with nuance and precision, accurately reproducing the sound image to not only convey the position of an instrument or artist, but also the movement behind it.
True Sound Technology: The fusion of acoustic and electronics is a feat that only Yamaha could accomplish, since it excels at absolutely everything related to sound and music, from the making of musical instruments to Pro Audio equipment.
A Closer Look At The Yamaha YH-L700A Headphones
With Yamaha’s unique and proprietary technology, they have created headphones that truly adapt to you and your environment.
3D Sound Field – Signature 3D Sound Immersion: A complete immersive sound space optimised for the ultimate multi-dimensional listening adventure. Headphones have drivers that are placed in close proximity to the ear and sounds are delivered to the eardrum without going through space. The sound source is clearly audible, but it makes localising individual sounds and instruments quite challenging.
3D Sound Field draws on over 30 years of using Yamaha‘s CINEMA DSP processing in home theatre products to transform 2-channel listening into a multi-channel experience. It localises the sound source by using proprietary HRTF (head-related transfer function) audio technology, synthesising binaural audio and rendering the two-channel sound source into a three-dimensional sound space.
Listening Optimiser – Optimised For My Experience: The size and shape of our head and ears impact the way each person interprets sound coming from headphones and earphones. Yamaha’s Listening Optimiser utilises an in-ear microphone to measure the seal and air leakage from different shaped ears every 20 seconds. Playback is optimised in real-time to correct the difference between the source and the actual listening condition, delivering a sound customised to the individual listener.
Advanced Active Noise Cancelling – Cut The Noise, Not My Music: Active noise cancellation 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. In-ear microphones listen to the combined signals of music and noise, separating the signal processing of background noise and music. It achieves this by isolating the two from each other in a new, unique algorithm. The signal collected by the inner microphone analyses the noise, calculating what should be removed from the playback music signal so that only noise is erased. This means there is no unnecessary processing of the music signal, preserving the purity of the music.
Listening Care Advanced – Get Closer, Not Louder: Listening Care aims to optimise the volume balance based on a static (unchanging) volume setting on your device. However things like the volume of the content itself as the dynamic range and recording level of the music varies, as well background noise level which is likely to result in volume changes on your device can impact this. Most notably, in times of high background noise it is often desirable to increase the volume.
Listening Care on the YH-L700A takes a real-time, adaptive approach that uses the data for the past 5 seconds, calculating the average volume level every 0.7ms. The correction applied across a 4-band EQ is adaptive according to the average volume level. Optimisation is therefore realised with significantly higher accuracy, relative to the content volume on an ongoing basis. Further, in order to obtain a more natural effect, the correction parameters are applied slowly over time. Your listening experience is customised to the music and your surroundings meaning a completely individualised sound, just for you.
Ambient Sound: Listening through headphones or earphones helps to block out the world and immerse yourself in your chosen music or audio. However blocking out the world may mean blocking important noises, such as an ambulance siren, a car horn or public transport announcements. Such important sounds might be necessary for you to avoid a potential accident or ensure you arrive to your destination on time.
Yamaha’s Ambient Sound function uses the built-in microphone to capture these external sounds, presenting them in the background while listening to your chosen audio, keeping you fully aware of your surroundings.
