Lenovo ThinkPad and Yoga Headphones are the two new additions in family of headphones. The company has created two versions with active and electronic noise cancellation that will be targeted at consumers and businesses. Lenovo’s Yoga ANC headphones have a white design, while the X1 ANC headphones come in the typical ThinkPad silver and black style.
The ThinkPad and Yoga headphones share the same features and overall collapsible design. Besides that, they also support Windows PCs and iOS / Android devices through Bluetooth 5.0 and USB-C connectivity.
Lenovo ThinkPad and Yoga headphones
Lenovo is using aluminum finished ear cups, alongside a soft cushion for comfort. They’re designed primarily for conference calls, and are optimized for Skype calling and tuned by Dolby. Lenovo is also including quick access controls for volume, alongside some limited voice control thanks to the built-in microphone.
Coming to the headphones, the on-ear design folds flat when not in use, and come with a matching carry bag. Lenovo said that the headphones use both hybrid ANC and ENC (electronic noise cancelation). Hence, ANC is for canceling unwanted outside sounds, while ENC is firmly for making calls.
The other important element for Lenovo ThinkPad and Yoga headphones is the battery. The battery life is a decent; the headphone works 15 hours with ANC, 20 hours without. And user can have a full battery charge in less than two hours. Besides that, the charging is done through the increasingly standard USB-C port, which also doubles as the wired audio connection.
The headphones come with two types of USB cable: A USB-C to USB-C and a USB-C to USB-A. Lenovo is pricing these headphones differently between consumers and commercial customers. The Yoga headphones will be available in July for $169.99, while the ThinkPad style will be priced at $149.99.
