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!

good quality and good battery life

By

Comments about AKG Y50 On-Ear Headphone:

I have been using the headphone for a few weeks. Sound quality not as good as my older over ear AKG headphones but for me it does the job. Good material and moving joint quality. And satisfactory battery life. The problem I have (like I read from the other reviews) when you fold the headphone and put it in its bag it pushes the "on" button itself. You can not fold it to its minimum volume as it is shown. That kind of very basic design error is actually unacceptable for such big brands.

I am very satisfied with this overall.
I'm curious about the charger specification.
Is there any damage to the battery in the charger specification below?

Sound great - big design flaw though.

By

Verified Buyer

Comments about AKG Y50 On-Ear Headphone:

The power button on these great sounding headphones is in the very worst possible location. When the cans are folded up, the button on the right cup lines up absolutely perfectly with the left so that it almost always hits the button and turns them on - so when you go to use them the battery is dead. All good if you never fold or pack them away. Also the neoprene storage bag is too small.
Hard to recommend these as a result, even though they are awesome otherwise.

Y50 Headphones

Comments about AKG Y50 On-Ear Headphone:

I bought the refurbished Y50 Headphones in turquoise. The headphones are stylish and look nice. However, I found them to be very uncomfortable on my ears and head. I cannot even listen to music with them for more then an hour because of how much the headphones hurt my ears. The sound quality of the headphones is also decent at best. Personally, I didn't find these headphones to be worth the money.

Comments about AKG Y50 On-Ear Headphone:

I purchased these headphones based on the sound qaulity from the headphones which came with my phone, which are ear buds. I figured that the sound quality would be great as well, and they definetly are.

Good quality for the price

Comments about AKG Y50 On-Ear Headphone:

I've been using them for a month now and they've been very reliable so far with good sound. The fact that you can use them either blutooth or wired is a good thing for me.

You can fold the headphones to carry them in a bag (included) but, there comes my major grip: the power button on the right earpiece comes in contact with the left earpiece when you fold them. You just need a small pressure and the power button is activated. This is very annoying and I still can't figure out how they could miss that in their user tests. To me, this is a major design flaw and should not have made it through lab testing. Moving the power button only half an inch would have solved this... I'm quite disapponted with this because I have to be extra careful not to turn them on everytime I put them back in the bag...

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
