Yamaha Design “Synapses” HPH-W300 / EPH-W53
Bluetooth® headphones equipped with slant swivels, and Bluetooth® earphones equipped with stabilizers.
The HPH-W300 headphones feature a “slant-swivel” inclined to match the axis of the swivel mechanism to the angle of the ear, while the EPH-W53 has been designed with particular attention paid to making it easy to grip when worn. Their functionality was based around how they would be used on a daily basis, is expressed in the shape of their construction.
The right housing features a touch panel that can be used to adjust volume. Pleasing to the touch, the housings are finished with a leather-like material that is fingerprint-resistant and gives an impression of softness, and have the Yamaha Tuning Fork Mark emblazoned at their center as a symbol of their reliability.
The concave shape that connects the eartip, stabilizer, and cable connection section takes a form that has been designed to be easy to grip and to wear. The stabilizer can be altered to match the varying ear shapes of different people, and serve as a stopper when the earphones are worn.
In contrast to the complex precision of their internal structure, we sought to make the outline of these products clean and simple, emphasizing their relaxed comfortable fit. Users can use these products wirelessly, giving them the freedom to enjoy listening to audio content in comfort both indoors and outdoors.
