What are Silent Pianos?

Silent piano with headphones

Silent Technology allows you to play a real acoustic piano with headphones at any time, day or night without being disturbed or disturbing others.

For our Silent pianos, our prime goal was to make a beautiful true acoustic piano, built with the knowledge and skill of over 100 years of Yamaha piano crafting. We then add our class-leading Silent Technology which allows you to play the piano using headphones - making the piano silent to anyone else in the room. Silent Technology, when activated, captures every movement and nuance of the piano keys, hammers and pedals as you play, using a highly sophisticated sensor-technology. Crucially, it also brings each hammer to a stop before it can strike the strings. All of those movements are instantly translated by the Silent Module which sends an authentic piano tone to your headphones.

The Silent pianos possess many other features, including a range of pre-installed sounds and connectivity to mobile devices with the latest apps.
