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.

I found about those when looking for a replacement to my previous aging "monitor" headphones from a certain popular taiwanese manufacturer. I saw the design, the price, and instantly wanted to try those in the shop I was in. I instantly fell in love with them, the sound was marvellous. For its price I've been insanely impressed of what it delivers since it's entirely passive. So I got them, and I loved them.

I kept using them for music creation tasks and even use its microphone for calls on my computer since it's an excellent mike. They're quite comfortable unacordingly to most reviews I've read on the web.

Sadly after arround eight months of use I broke its cable and no sound comes out of my pair of headphones. It started by randomly pausing music on my phone, then a morning the sound only came out of the right side, and then nothing anymore. I'm still sad this happened, because those are the best headphones I ever had. I'm definitely going to grab another cable, or completely replace my unit for a shiny new pair of Y50.

Only complaint I have to do is that the paint gets scratched quickly on the hoop and ears, and scales after two or three months on the hoop.

Mine don't work :(

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.

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.

Spoil your ears!

By Justin

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!

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

Battery low warning so annoying!

By Martylikes2party

Comments about AKG Y50 On-Ear Headphone:

I can't fault the headphones for quality! They are perfect. But the you start to get a battery low warning in your ear which starts when you still have a good 6+ hours left of charge. And so far have been unable to find a way to turn it off. It's so annoying that I regret buying them.

Great headphones!

By Hal_

Comments about AKG Y50 On-Ear Headphone:

I received these headphones when I pre-orded my S8+ ... I use them almost ever day! I use them while I sit at my desk at work, I use them while I workout, I use them while I do yard work and I use them while I eat green eggs and ham. Honestly though I love these headphones and never thought I would be an over the ear headphone guy but after using these I will not go back. The battery life is remarkable and feel like I am cheating the system because the battery last so long!
On to the important thing... Sound.. The sound quality is excellent not top of the line studio quality but for headphones that you can basically use for anything and everything they have fabulous sound. Next set of headphones will most certainly be AKG.

Gets uncomfortable... but great sound quality

By StainedGlass

from Arlington, MA, United States

Verified Buyer

Comments about AKG Y50 On-Ear Headphone:

This is a product with some real positive reviews, but I find it disappointing. I use it 100% at my apple computer, but find it gets quite uncomfortable over time due to weight... and I'm a big guy. The weight gets easily noticed at the top of my head and upon my ears.
The headphone sound quality is awesome; superb surround and centering in the sound. But the weight wears on me and makes me take off the headphones.
Also, the charging doesn't work well. I leave it connected to my Apple pc USB charging port overnight, and it can be a drag trying to get the power to turn on right away.

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.

Sound great but have an annoying design flaw.

By asauers

from Undisclosed

Comments about AKG Y50 On-Ear Headphone:

First of all, they sound great and are comfortable. The issue comes when you fold them the store them in a case. The left earpad rests directly against the power button on the right earpad, causing lots of unwanted turn ons/power drains. One thing that AKG could do to fix this (besides redeigniong and moving the button to literally anywhere else) would be to supply a small, curved plastic piece that could be held in place with the 2.5 mm jack and would cover/protect the power button when not in use. You listening AKG?

Great sound with one design fumble

By nurbles62

from USA

Comments about AKG Y50 On-Ear Headphone:

I love the sound and leave those descriptions to others. I'm not fond of the fact that, when these are folded flat for travel, the power button is perfectly aligned to be pressed by the other ear piece. And it IS pressed. Over and over ever time the device is jostled. Sometimes it STAYS pressed for extended periods. So, as is, these are better to WEAR when you travel than to use the flat folding feature (which was why I selected them!) -- unless you like recharging the battery when you arrive at your destination.

annoying flashing led light when in use

By snakefang88

from Undisclosed

Comments about AKG Y50 On-Ear Headphone:

Got this for free. Sound quality is just okay. No one that tried it out was impressed. However there's a blue constantly flashing led on the right side of the headphones that is really distracting. And the headphones beep really loudly when starting up and when adjusting volume. I wouldn't buy this if I had the choice to.

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.
