Leading Japanese manufacturer, Yamaha, has reportedly announced that it is launching its new TW-E3B, a set of truly wireless earbuds with ‘Listening Care’ technology. The company is the latest audio equipment manufacturer to understand that hearing loss might be a concern.
Listening Care is a technology that allows listeners to hear the whole frequency spectrum of music at reduced volume levels.
The concept behind the technology is to overcome the disadvantages of traditional earphones, which sees significant drop in particular frequencies at lower volumes. As a result, listeners tend to increase volume levels in order to hear better, which ends up causing hearing loss in the process.
According to the World Health Organization, over 2.5 billion individuals will have some level of hearing loss by 2050. According to the group, more than a billion young individuals are in danger of irreversible, but preventable, hearing loss as a result of hazardous listening habits.
The long-term effects may be exacerbated by the use of earbuds and headphones at high volume levels on a regular basis. Listening Care attempts to tackle the problem by making low-volume listening clearer by intelligently changing sound frequencies to preserve the full-range sound.
The Yamaha TW-E3B features a small housing and a 6mm dynamic driver. The Earplug may be placed deep inside the ear canal of the listener, forming an acoustic barrier that prevents sound leakage and loss of sound quality.
Furthermore, the earbuds are adjusted to allow for low-frequency reproduction with a strong feeling of loudness and high-frequency control, allowing each note to be heard clearly. According to the firm, the outcome is a very immersive sound that carries music with energy and allows the listener to feel the artists' and creators' intents and thoughts as originally intended.
The TW-E3B's is available in six colors, two monotone tones, and four smokey finishes to complement the listener's fashion taste. Besides that, the earbud's size has been decreased by 25%, as compared with the previous model.
