Still, in these days, finding a pair of reliable true wireless earbuds that not only feature multiple quality-of-life functionalities (such as an extended battery life, built-in Controls, and also Voice Assistant support) but that also come at an affordable price is easier said than done. With so many Audio Brands now flooding the earbuds market with newer and better models, finding a pair of wireless earbuds that’s both versatile and affordable can be somewhat complicated, especially when accounting for the wide variety of models you have available to choose from. Nevertheless, there are some newly released models of true wireless earbuds that check all of those boxes, and the Yamaha TW-E5B Earbuds is definitely one of them.

The Yamaha TW-E5B are true wireless Bluetooth earbuds that feature great audio quality, an Ambient Sound Mode, IPX5 Water-Resistance Rating, built-in Button Controls, stable wireless Bluetooth 5.2 Connectivity, Voice Call support, as well as Voice Assistant support for Siri and Google Assistant, and up to 30 hours of battery life, along with a 10-minutes Quick-Charging function.

Not only that, but they’re Ambient Sound Mode is truly awesome, as it allows you to stay aware of your surroundings at all times, even while listening to music.

Now, let’s have a more detailed look at them and check out everything that the Yamaha TW-E5B Earbuds have to offer you.

DESIGN & SPECS

Starting with the Yamaha TW-E5B Earbuds’ size, these true wireless Bluetooth earbuds come at a reasonably compact size. Not only that, but these sleek earbuds are also fairly lightweight, as each earbud only weighs 0.23 oz. (6.52 g).

Yamaha TW-E5B Earbuds – Measurements & Design

Not only are these true wireless earbuds ultra-portable, but they also display a very minimalist and ultra-modern design, as their outer shell comes in a single solid / flat color (either Black, Light Gray, Dark Blue, or Light Brown), along with some very discrete color-accents for both their built-in Button Controls and for the company’s Logo (which is stamped on the earbuds’ outwards-facing flat-side).

The TW-E5B Earbuds’ minimalist and ultra-modern design ultimately gives the earbuds a somewhat discrete, yet still very stylish look.

Now, when it comes to actually wearing the TW-E5B Earbuds, it’s also worth noting that these true wireless Bluetooth earbuds feature a unique ergonomic design, as they have an ergonomic groove shape with an original curved structure that ergonomically conforms to a user’s ear.

Unique Ergonomic Design

The TW-E5B’s unique ergonomic shape basically helps these earbuds to anchor themselves onto the bottom-ridge of a user’s ears, ultimately locking them securely in place.

Not only does the earbuds’ ergonomic design helps users to achieve a truly comfortable and very secure fit, but it also ensures that users are always able to get a proper seal (i.e. from their surrounding environment) so that they can have an optimal sound quality at all times while wearing the TW-E5B Earbuds.

Still in topic of the Yamaha TW-E5B Earbuds’s overall comfort, it’s also worth to mention that these true wireless earbuds also come together with four (x4) sets of Detachable Eartips of different sizes (XS, S, M, and L) included in their package, with the earbuds themselves already coming pre-equipped (inside the package) with the M-sized eartips by default.

The earbuds come together with 5 sets of Detachable Eartips of different sizes (XS, S, M, and L)

Essentially, these extra three (x3) sets of Detachable Eartips (XS, S, and L) ultimately allows users to personally customize the earbuds and ultimately ensure they can get a perfect-fit, no matter their ear’s shape and/or size.

On top of their ergonomic design, the earbuds also feature a fairly durable construction. Additionally, the Yamaha TW-E5B Earbuds also feature a IPX5 Water-Resistance Rating, which not only makes them weather-resistant (weak rain drops, not heavy rain), but also very resistant to sweat.

This basically makes these true wireless Bluetooth earbuds perfect for listening to any sort of audio content (such as music, podcasts, online radio, etc.) anywhere and at any time of the day, whether you’re going through your daily commute or while you’re on-the-go, as well as for times when you’re practicing sports (either indoors or outdoors).

Last but not least, we also have the earbuds’ dedicated wireless charging case, which, just like TW-E5B Earbuds themselves, also comes at a fairly compact size, measuring just 2.58 inches long by 1.32 inches wide by 1.96 inches tall (65.53 x 33.52 x 49.78 mm), and their charging case is also fairly lightweight.

Both the Yamaha TW-E5B Earbuds and their charging case feature a IPX5 Water-Resistance Rating

Just like the TW-E5B Earbuds, their dedicated charging case also features a simple, minimalist, modern and very discrete design. Furthermore, the case itself is also quite durable as well as water-resistant against any sort of water-splashes.

AUDIO SPECS & AUDIO QUALITY

Moving on to the earbuds’ audio specifications and their audio quality. Starting with the earbuds’ sound-components, know that the Yamaha TW-E5B Earbuds come equipped with a unique Sound System that combines a 7mm Dynamic Sound Driver Unit (one on each earbud) and a high-end Sound Nozzle together with a clever internal design that’s focused on airflow and acoustic space.

Unique Sound System combines a 7mm Dynamic Sound Driver Unit and a high-end Sound Nozzle together with an internal design focused on airflow and acoustic space

To be a little more specific, and as said before, the TW-E5B Earbuds’ internal Sound System is powered by Yamaha’s True Sound Technology (which combines Yamaha’s Acoustic Sound and Electric Technologies), for which the earbuds’ Sound System is also precision-optimized to deliver remarkably dynamic, well-balanced and spacious sound.

In sum, the Yamaha TW-E5B Earbuds are designed to deliver great audio quality with an extraordinary realism, detail and clarity all together. All in all, these earbuds are capable of reproducing all the details you’d want to hear in any song. This includes crystal-clear highs (high-frequency sounds), very smooth mids (meaning mid-frequency sounds such as mid-range vocals), and also a truly rich and very punchy bass (low-frequency sounds like beats).

Note that the earbuds’ 7mm Dynamic Drivers feature a Frequency Response that can vary between 20 Hz and 20 kHz.

Furthermore, the Yamaha TW-E5B Earbuds also come equipped with an internal Microphone that features an Advanced Mic Design.

More specifically, the earbuds’ microphone is powered by Qualcomm’s cVc (Clear Voice Capture) Technology, which ensures that users are always able to get an enhanced voice quality for a crystal-clear sound while using the Yamaha TW-E5B Earbuds during their voice-calls.

Notable Audio Features

Listening Care

Now, while these earbuds are cleverly designed to deliver a very rich and quite immersive sound quality, they’re also designed with hearing-health in mind. That’s because the Yamaha TW-E5B Earbuds also boast a Listening Care smart-functionality that works based on an intelligent equalization of the earbuds’ produced sound.

Listening Care functionality that helps to ensure a user’s hearing-health

Enabling the TW-E5B’s Listening Care Mode ultimately helps the earbuds to automatically adjust the EQ (equalizer) to make their 7mm Dynamic Drivers capable of delivering a full-range sound when specifically listening at lower volume-levels.

To be little more specific, the earbuds’ Listening Care Mode essentially works like a listening hearing-healthcare functionality, which the company says can help you listen at lower sound volumes without any loss of quality.

In sum, this is a very useful (and also very important) functionality for anyone who wants to avoid the possibility of noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL).

Ambient Sound Mode

On top of every sound-related functionality already mentioned above, know that the Yamaha TW-E5B Earbuds also feature an awesome Ambient Sound Mode that when enabled, allows users to stay aware of their surroundings at all times, even while listening to music.

Voice Assistant Support

Last but not least, it’s also worth noting that since these true wireless Bluetooth earbuds come equipped with an internal Microphone, they consequently also feature Voice Assistant Support for both Siri and the Google Assistant.

INTERFACE / BUILT-IN CONTROLS

As mentioned before, these true wireless earbuds also boast built-in Physical Button Controls, which are directly integrated at the top-outer-edge of each earbud, and the earbuds’ built-in Button Controls are comfortable to press and also quite easy-to-use.

Via the earbuds’ built-in Physical Button Controls, users can control the earbuds’ volume-level, as well as manage phone calls, track control, and more.

Now, it’s important to note that there are two (x2) separate sets of built-in Physical Button Controls, as the Left-Earbud only integrates a Function Button, while the Right-Earbud integrates a Plus (+) Button and a Minus (-) Button.

By performing a single-press on the Left-Earbuds’ Function Button, users can Play/Pause their music, or alternatively, answer an incoming voice call (whenever that’s the case). Pressing and then holding the Left-Earbuds’ Function Button for 1 second allows users to hang-up an ongoing voice call. Double-pressing that same Function Button allows users to enable / disable the earbuds’ Ambient Sound Mode.

On the other hand, we have the Right-Earbud Controls. By performing a single-press on the Right-Earbuds’ Plus (+) Button, users can Increase the earbuds’ Volume-Level, while double-pressing that same Plus (+) Button allows users to Skip Forward from their currently playing soundtrack.

Alternatively, by performing a single-press on the Right-Earbuds’ Minus (-) Button, users can Decrease the earbuds’ Volume-Level, while double-pressing that same Minus (-) Button allows users to Skip Backwards from their currently playing soundtrack.

Finally, pressing and then holding the Right-Earbuds’ Minus (-) Button for 1 second allows users to activate the earbuds’ Voice Assistant support (either for Siri or for the Google Assistant, whichever one your Smartphone supports).

CONNECTIVITY

For establishing their wireless connectivity, these true wireless earbuds boast a very-stable wireless Bluetooth 5.2 Connectivity that works based on Qualcomm’s TrueWireless Mirroring technology, for which the earbuds support a maximum wireless range of 32.80 ft. (10 m) when connected to your main device (i.e. Smartphone or tablet) without any interference.

Bluetooth 5.2 Connectivity

It’s also worth noting that these use Qualcomm aptX Adaptive as their Bluetooth audio codec, for which having aptX Adaptive as an available Bluetooth codec can greatly help the E5B’s 7mm Dynamic Sound Drivers to deliver better sound quality when used with a compatible Android smartphone.

On top of that, know that the Yamaha TW-E5B Earbuds also feature support to several different Bluetooth Profiles, including HFP (Handsfree Profile), HSP (Headset Profile), A2DP (Advanced Audio Distribution Profile), and AVCRP (Audio/Video Remote Control Profile), as well as support to both Bluetooth SBC Implementation & AAC Bluetooth Codes (for their data transfer), along with the already mentioned Qualcomm aptX Adaptive audio codec.

Gaming Mode

In addition to the earbuds’ state-of-the-art Bluetooth 5.2 Connectivity, the Yamaha TW-E5B also boast a Gaming Mode that once enabled, further reduces the audio-latency (meaning the “lag”) between sound and video when watching videos or playing mobiles games.

BATTERY & BATTERY LIFE

Lastly, for their battery, each earbud comes equipped with a small built-in rechargeable Lithium-Ion Battery that can offer you up to 8.5 hours of battery-life (for music-listening and for voice calls) on a full charge.

8.5 hours battery life from the earbuds alone

In addition, the earbuds’ dedicated wireless charging case also comes equipped with a larger and reasonably more powerful built-in Lithium-Ion Battery that can offer you an additional 21.5 hours (meaning 2.5 (two-and-a-half) extra 8.5 hour-charges) for the earbuds.

Ultimately, the Yamaha TW-E5B Earbuds can offer you a total of 30 hours of battery life (when having the earbuds’ as well as their dedicated wireless charging case both fully-charged).

For recharging the earbuds, you simply have to slot them into their respective charging slots within their dedicated wireless charging case. For recharging the built-in Lithium-Ion Battery from their charging case, you simply have to connect its dedicated USB-C Charging Cable (included in the package) into its USB-C Charging port.

Finally, know that these true wireless Bluetooth earbuds also feature support to Quick-Charging, for which a simple 10-minute charge will give users an additional one hour of battery-life.

THE SMARTPHONE COMPANION APP – The Yamaha Headphone Control App

Best of all, users can also download the Yamaha Headphone Control App to customize the earbuds’ many different settings, for which the App is available to download for free for both iOS and Android devices.

Via the Jaybird Yamaha Headphone Control App, users are offered multiple Headphone Control Settings where they can manually adjust the earbuds’ Sound Equalizer (EQ), as well as select one (or more) specific Listening Mode(s) – which gives you multiple options between enable / disable the earbuds’ Listening Care function, Ambient Sound Mode, and Gaming Mode).
