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.

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.

Comments about AKG Y50 On-Ear Headphone:

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.

Best value and then some ... by far!

By jag27d

from Hawaii, United States

Comments about AKG Y50 On-Ear Headphone:

I bought these headphones after listening to a demo set in Korea while on vacation. They were at a high end resort in a high end shop. The sound was absolutely incredible for a bluetooth set. I was afraid that these would cost a fortune though. The fit is comfortable. The design blocks out just enough noise to make them very pleasant. The sound quality it superb especially given the price. You will not find another set of headphones with this quality at this price. I would argue that you won't find a set this good at double the price. The battery lasted me about 18 hours. Seriously, do you really need it to last longer? But, there is more ... the awesome thing is you can use the supplied cable to wire these directly to your device should your battery die. Really though, who listens to music or whatever for more than 20 hours straight? Bottom line is buy these and you will not be sorry. I am very picky when it comes to sound quality and even more picky when it comes to value.

Almost perfect.

By Cole B

Comments about AKG Y50 On-Ear Headphone:

Got the blue pair about a year ago, and i love them. my only gripe is that the padding on the headband came off after only a few months of regular every day use, a little disappointing, but none the less, i am excited to try the y50bt.

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

Spoil your ears!

By Justin

from South Africa

Comments about AKG Y50 On-Ear Headphone:

These are simply one of the best things you will ever listen to. They will definitely spoil your ears to the point where loudspeakers will sound sub standard unless you invest in a really high end system. These are able to handle absolutely any type of music with finesse and class. The WhatHiFi 5 star review is definitely justified!
