Overview

The AKG Y50s represent a new breed of exceptional on-ear headphone for people demanding more: more quality, more convenience, more flexibility. Their inspirational performance is matched by a bold styling and a lightweight, comfortable fit that redefines the category

Their closed-back design eliminates any other sounds beside the ones you want to hear, providing a snug, comfortable fit. Choose a look and color to complement your personal touch.

Signature AKG-quality sound with enriched bass performance
AKG sound originates from powerful, 40mm drivers delivering an enhanced, punched-up bass response with minimal disturbance from the outside world thanks to their bleed-resistant design.

On-ear headphone with closed ear-cup design for reduced ambient noise
Removing those external sounds you’d rather not hear allows for a distraction-free environment with which to fully concentrate on the acoustics you’d prefer to hear – as it should be.

Long-lasting, comfortable fit with rugged, lightweight design
Headphones may sound great but unless they’re comfortable, they won’t wear well over time. The AKG Y50s lightweight construction and closed ear-cup design are engineered to feel like they’re barely there – yet provide you with a listening experience to fit your discerning tastes like a glove.

Detachable, 1.2m cable with inline, one-button remote/mic
Keep connected for work or for play while you choose between taking a call or riffing on a favorite tune – all without skipping a beat. Compatible with most smartphones, AKG Y50s address your on-the-go lifestyle but leave the decisions of what to do next up to you.

3D-Axis folding mechanism and pouch for easy storage and safe transport
AKG Y50s adhere to your on-the-go lifestyle, designed to fold down neatly for safe storage in a compact, protected pouch. This keeps them safe when you’re not using them – but ready to come into play whenever you need to take them with you.

Four cool color options with emphasis on smart, tasteful design and AKG branding The AKG brand is something you can be proud to wear as they represent the very best in sound quality, making an overall statement that speaks highly of your personal taste and standards. There’s no reason why something that sounds so good shouldn’t look the part – so choose the color and overall look that best complements your personal style.

After reading several professional reviews stating that this is the best set of headphones in its class at this price point, I purchased this pair of headsets as a gift for my 27 yr. old nephew who is in computer networking and somewhat of a techie. He said that the headphones are great sounding and very comfortable.

Finally amazing sounding bluetooth headphones!

By pmosh

from NY, United States

Comments about AKG Y50 On-Ear Headphone:

I had tried many pairs of bluetooth headphones prior to getting the Y50's and every time i listened to them it was such a compromise in sound quality just to have the bluetooth feature. When i tried the Y50's i was shocked that it was really bluetooth as all my other experiences were so poor. I am an audio engineer so i am very aware of what my music should sound like and the Y50's nailed the perfect tonal balance and audio quality. It seems like they are using the latest bluetooth specs and codecs so that what I'm hearing back is excellent with no artifacts. Battery life is great too. No downsides so far....... Only wish they came out a few years ago

Comfortable & Sound Great!

By toobzlafin

from Whitby, ON, Canada

Comments about AKG Y50 On-Ear Headphone:

I got these headphones for Christmas and am still thoroughly enjoying them. They sound great and although they aren't noise-cancelling, they do a pretty decent job of blocking out background noise. I use them at work and at home and use them at night to fall asleep. They're really comfortable and have saved me more than once when I wanted to sleep and block out background noise. The battery is also really good. I can wear these for days without charging. I don't think I've ever run out of battery, but typically don't go more than 3-4 days without charging because I don't want to be left in a lurch. I highly recommend these headphones for comfort, sound and longevity.

Never heard of them before this.

Comments about AKG Y50 On-Ear Headphone:

Got the Samsung S8+, and it said that it came with these, in a Bluetooth form, when you upgraded the Oculus bundle. They were sold out. So I went ahead and just got the headphones that were wired. Best sound I have heard so far from headphones, especially in the price range I will spend for headphones.

Comments about AKG Y50 On-Ear Headphone:

I received these as part of the galaxy s8+ experience. Brand new, out of the box they didn't work. It seems to be an isolated issue, but it is my experience nonetheless.

You won't regret this purchase.

By jl_b8

from Kansas City, MO, United States

Comments about AKG Y50 On-Ear Headphone:

Would buy again and again. Exceptional sound and battery life. Deep, accurate base. Very detailed throughout the range. They don't get hot on my ears like my over-ear Sennheisers. Comfortable, but a little heavy if you're on the move. Like if I stand up and they're not centered, they'll slide off my head. Sound does transfer when taking steps too, may be the seal to my ear giving. Instant pairing is nice but occasionally it doesn't pick up and I have to go into my phone settings. Sometimes it picks up when they're in my work bag and I have to turn Bluetooth to severe connection.
