After launching earlier this summer, Yamaha’s flagship TW-E7B true wireless earbuds are now available in the US. You can buy them starting today for $279.95. The TW-E7B has a lot to offer. They are Yamaha’s first true wireless earbuds to incorporate the company’s proprietary active noise-cancelling algorithm. Yamaha claims its take on ANC doesn’t “color” audio like some implementations do. The earbuds also have an internal microphone that monitors how the shape of your ear is affecting the audio output and adjusts accordingly.
Many of the TW-E7B’s other software features are standard at this price point. The usual ambient mode makes an appearance, as does Google’s Fast Pair. For gamers, there’s a low-latency mode that you can activate by triple-tapping the volume down button on the right earbud. In that sense, the inclusion of built-in volume controls is noteworthy. Most true wireless earbuds don’t have them. Bluetooth codec support isn’t as extensive as we’ve seen on the market recently, but you do get access to AAC and .
Yamaha says you can get up to six hours of battery life with the earbuds alone, and 22 hours total with the included charging case. The housing that protects the 10mm drivers is IPX5 certified against moisture. The TW-E7B are available in four colors: black, dark blue, beige and white. They also come with five different silicone ear tips.
