Yamaha Announces Compact WS-B1A Bluetooth Speaker

Yamaha has announced the release of its durable, portable and stylish WS-B1A Bluetooth speaker.

Yamaha says the new release is its “first foray in capturing our powerful True Sound philosophy within a highly compact and portable speaker”. It weighs 490g and is just 10cm, so it conveniently fits in the palm of your hand.

Adopted from Yamaha's soundbar range, the WS-B1A also includes the Clear Voice feature. Clear Voice is a unique Yamaha technology that brings narration and dialogue to the forefront, allowing the WS-B1A to also serve as a perfect audio solution to listen to podcasts or audiobooks without the use of headphones.

The WS-B1A boasts up to 12 hours of continuous playback on a full charge (approx. 3 hours charge time), allowing you to keep your music close to you all day. You can charge it through either a USB-C cable connection to a port on the rear of the unit or by using the CC-T1A charging cradle (sold separately). The CC-T1A is a convenient and discreet charging solution exclusive to the WS-B1A that allows for seamless charging without the need to plug and unplug the unit from a cable.

Encased in custom fabric, it is available in various colours, including basic black, carbon grey with rose gold accents, and light grey. The WS-B1A is also built to strong IP67 grade waterproof performance, allowing you to play your music anywhere, anytime – even where it’s wet. This rating allows the WS-B1A to withstand the effects of temporary accidental immersion between 15cm and 1m and gives it a high level of durability from the ingress of dust and airborne particles.
