Ultra-Low Latency

Thanks to exclusive Yamaha ultra-high-speed technology, musicians experience less than four milliseconds of latency, perfectly preserving the timing and feel of their performance when practicing.

Semi-Open Design

YH-WL500 headphones are exceptionally comfortable to wear, and their semi-open design greatly reduces ear fatigue, making them ideal for even the longest practice sessions.

Bluetooth® Support

Bluetooth® capabilities make it easy for players to play along with tracks in their music libraries.

Latency Comparison

While the maximum acceptable latency (playback delay) standard for professional musicians is 10 milliseconds, YH-WL500 headphones achieve ultra-high-speed transmission of less than 4 milliseconds. This provides a wireless playing experience equivalent to that of using a cable, something that was previously impossible with Bluetooth® headphones (which can have up to 200 milliseconds of latency).
