Stylish on-ear headphone.

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 dont know how to update my old review (The 2 star review)
got help from my local dealer and he exchange the my defected cable for a new one.
so, im writing a new one instead

anyway this headphone is great in every aspect.
-They didnt advertise it has noise isolation but i cant here what ppl are talking about when i put it on.
-sound great and vocal , guitar (i can hear each individual string of guitar sound in some songs) and it also works well for asmr.
-and the battery life is really really long I bought it for a month and i've only charged it 5 times

There is also a small flaw in the design i wanna point out:
-sometime when I fold the headphone.The edge touch each other and bluetooth button gets push and turn on the bluetooth accidentally.

I had been a huge fan of AKG for a long time but was a little worried when I read the other reviews reporting malfunctioning bluetooth / wireless as soon as they received the product. However, given great experiences I had previously with other AKG headphones (not purchased in the US), I thought maybe this wouldn't happen to me.

It turned out that the same thing happened again. I got the box which was slightly broken (probably due to pressure) and found the bluetooth / wireless function not responding at all even after charging. The most disappointing part was that the online customer service representative took more than 1 week to come back with a solution (which was simply refund or replacement). I was so hoping to carry this new headphone with me on my business trip but was not able to do so and had to deal with anxiety of not getting any response from the customer service during my business trip!

I'd urge AKG to check your stock of Y50BT in the US especially because it seems like there's consistent problem with bluetooth function so you should really stop selling more defected products!

Music sounds great, but the wireless audio is out of sync with video on my iPhone X, which is super annoying and unusable for watching YouTube or Netflix

Comments about AKG Y50 On-Ear Headphone:

Uncomfy, sits on ear, causes pressure. FAR too much bass. Slips around, not possible to use @ the gym. WAY overpriced.

Really good sound, quick bluetooth sync

Comments about AKG Y50 On-Ear Headphone:

I have to say, for the price point the AKG Y50BT are a really good set of cans. Pairs up quickly on bluetooth, sound is really good, not much leakage and the ear sponges are a comfortable fit. Battery lasts for a long time. I use them for my weekly flights. Highly recommend them, well worth it.

Battery low warning so annoying!

By 

from London, United Kingdom

Verified Buyer

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.

Almost perfect

By

Comments about AKG Y50 On-Ear Headphone:

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.

Great headphones!

By

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.
