Venova YVS-120/YVS-140 Casual Wind Instruments, YH-L700A Headphones Chosen for Red Dot: Best of the Best Award

Yamaha Corporation announces that two of its designs have been shortlisted to receive the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2022: namely, Venova™ YVS-120/YVS-140 casual wind instruments and YH-L700A wireless headphones. Both products have also been chosen to receive the most prestigious Red Dot award: Best of the Best, which is reserved for particularly outstanding designs.

The Red Dot Design Award is a German design award organized by the Design Zentrum Nordrhein Westfalen which is highly respected worldwide and comprises three categories: Product Design, Brands & Communication Design and Design Concept. This year, more than 7,900 items were submitted from about 60 countries and regions around the world for the Red Dot Award: Product Design, and less than 1.5% of them were shortlisted for the Red Dot: Best of the Best award.

These two wins bring Yamaha’s total number of Red Dot Design Awards to 29 since it began submitting entries in 1997. Past recipients of the Red Dot: Best of the Best award include the SB-7 SILENT Brass™ system. (1997), SVC-200 SILENT Cello™ (2000), Revstar Electric Guitar (2017) and YDS-150 Digital Saxophone (2021), bringing the total number of awards received with the latter two additions to six.

Venova™ YVS-120/YVS-140 Occasional Wind Instruments

YVS-120 Alto Venova (top) and YVS-140 Tenor Venova (bottom)

The Venova is an entirely new type of acoustic wind instrument that was developed to allow musicians to easily enjoy authentic sound and rich expressiveness. The innovative branching pipe structure and sinuous shape allow the instrument to be played with simple fingering resembling that of a recorder, making it easy to get started even for players new to wind instruments, while providing a satisfying playing experience for established wind instrument players. . The instrument’s ABS plastic body is lightweight yet exceptionally durable and can be cleaned with water, making regular use and maintenance easy. Due to its compact size, the Venova can be taken virtually anywhere, allowing gamers to easily enjoy music in a variety of environments ranging from outdoors to casual music sessions. In addition to the YVS-120 alto model and YVS-140 tenor model, the full lineup also includes a soprano model, for a total of three models to satisfy a variety of player needs.

YH-L700A Wireless Headphones

The YH-L700A wireless headphones adapt to the user’s media and listening environment to embody “True Sound”, which expresses the expression of every sound as the artist intended.
Yamaha’s original ‘3D Sound Field’ technology allows the user to select a three-dimensional space, or ‘sound field’, that complements the audiovisual content. It’s great not only for listening to music, but also for watching movies and TV shows on streaming services, as well as short clips on video-sharing services. Other unique features include “Listening Optimizer”, an exclusive Yamaha technology that optimizes sound in real time based on the size and shape of the listener’s ears and head. The headset’s simple and distinctive rectangular silhouette is the inevitable result of the designers’ pursuit of intuitive operation and uncompromising comfort. Fabric and leather materials are used throughout to create a luxurious feel that gently embraces the wearer. The result is a pair of wireless headphones that deliver an immersive sound experience in both functionality and design.
