”An affordable, portable and unbeatable set of wireless headphones”. ’What Hi-Fi?’ 2021 award-winner.

AKG sound quality

Following a longline of Y-series award-winners, the Y400 picks up the batten with its class-leading sound quality. 36mm drivers deliver a detailed, punchy sound that reveals every intricacy of your favourite music. The energetic sound brings your music to life and times it to perfection.

Designed for Samsung
Although these wireless AKG headphones are great with all types of sources, they’re ideal for using with Samsung products. They easily link to the Bixby, the virtual assistant and MDE, seamlessly connecting your Samsung ecosystem. It also supports the UHQ codec, used by Samsung for high quality audio transfer.

Wireless or wired
Utilising Bluetooth 5.0, with AAC codec support the Y400 headphones make a high quality, wireless connection that’s perfect for connecting with your smartphone. They also come supplied with a cable – perfect for use at home or when the battery has run out. With controls on the cable and headphones, keeping in touch with your music and calls is easy.

Compact and lightweight
Smaller and lighter than other on-ear headphones but big enough to isolate you from the outside world, the Y400s are the perfect size for many. The fold flat design lets them easily fit into the supplied pouch – taking up little more bag space than a pair of sunglasses.

Stay aware with Ambient Aware and TalkThru technology
Ambient Aware lets more of the outside sound in - perfect for if you’re listening out for announcements or are in a busy environment. TalkThru drops the music level down, letting you have a conversation, without having to remove the headphones – ideal for when placing your coffee order.

Play, pause and multi-point connectivity
Remove your headphones and the music pauses. Put them back on and the music resumes from where you left off, meaning you don’t miss a thing. Multi-point connectivity means that you can connect to a portable music player and smartphone, easily switching between the two when required.

20 hours battery life
With 20 hours battery life you can listen all day without being troubled by cables. To recharge, simply plug into a USB device. A full recharge takes just two hours.

Wake up your music on the move, with the AKG Y400, wireless headphones.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really good sound for the price Considering these are not the most expensive of wireless headphones I was pleasantly surprised by the sound reproduction. Certain areas do struggle particularly the mid range and so vocals can sound occasionally unnatural but the bass is quite impressive. Noise suppression is okay. Found them comfortable to wear, not to heavy. Nice facility that it pauses the track when the headphones are removed. Would happily buy again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly Musical Compared to my Y50 I found these offered a brighter sound, a shade more clarity and improved rhythm. They are smaller and lighter so should be easier to carry on my work journey. On the downside they are a higher fit and there may be more sound leakage so I have to watch out for my fellow passengers! I got a great deal on these at Richer Sounds tothatl a real bonus.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautifully crafted These feel top quality, the fit and comfort is great and the sound quality is fantastic. I bought these for my wife after giving up on earbuds due to very small ear canals and she absolutely loves the wireless freedom. Thanks to RicherSounds for their great prices, stock levels and friendly service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A new fan of AKG I've always used Sennheiser headphones, mainly because of their superior quality but I read a report on Richer Sounds of well priced AKG headphones and the sound blew me away. Well worth the money!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fantastic sound but uncomfortable I really wanted to love these headphones and they sure have quite a lot going for them. First of all, the sound is absolutely stunning, especially for headphones of that price and size. The sound stage is so wide and the sound is very detailed. I really get immersed into the music. Also, microphone and battery life are both very good. There's absolutely no problem in terms of intelligibility on the other side and they last most of the working week. I've been having video calls every day for 5-6 hours with them. This leads me to my only - but fundamental - complaint. These headphones are not comfortable to wear for long periods of time. They are comfortable for about 15 minutes until the memory foam gets too soft and the headphones start pressing too hard on the ears, making it a bit painful at the end of the day. The shape is also awkward with the headphones not really able to sit firm on the head and the earpieces trying to go flat alongside the shape of the ear but resulting in a misalignment between the left and right ear which, combined with the flattening foam, translates into regular instability. If I was using them a couple of hours a day for music and video calls, these would be 5 stars. For my use case unfortunately, it's 3 stars.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent headphones Bought as a birthday present for my wife. She's really pleased with them. The sound is great and they are comfortable to wear. The only minor criticism is that it would be good to have something to indicate the actual level of charge remaining e.g. via an App, other than a 'flashing low charge led' which doesn't tell you very much. The service from Richer Sounds was very good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Look Great Sound Superb I am delighted with the quality of sound and construction and appearance of these compact headphones. Bluetooth pairing is straight forward and volume easily adjusted with a slider switch which doubles as a track changer. Bluetooth automatically switches off when using the supplied 1.2m headphone lead. These headphones deliver a clear sound with lovely separation of vocal and instruments and can deliver a lot of audible power across the frequency range with clarity.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You can buy cheaper but you'll regret it. Bought primarily for the TV as got sick of being constantly caught in wires and my dirt cheap bluetooth headphones finally falling apart (one 'ear' dangling by a wire ....). The sound quality is AKG worthy and therefore good to my philistine ears and an improvement on the dirt cheap pair! Pairs really easily with S8 and computer and Spotify sounds awsome through them. Yet to find an adequate bluetooth adapter for TV so still an issue there. Battery seems to last a solid length of time. Haven't used on calls yet but like that have the facility to do so as comes with additional wire with mike specifically for this purpose. Haven't owned them long enough to give a full review on all the functions as have yet to discover due to primary purpose being for the TV but am looking forward to finding out about all they can do.

I can immerse myself with music to feel uplifted,podcasts to ponder in thought and receive and make telephone calls to share my new experiences. All good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great headphones for the price I bought these mainly for use during lockdown Zoom/Teams meetings and they have worked well for this. The sound and microphone are clear although Windows 10 will sometimes pick up the headphone profile instead of the headset profile which means the microphone doesn't work. Having said that I do use them to listen to music occasionally and they are great for the price. The bass is perhaps not as emphasised as some might like but is handled well so that the overall sound is balanced. They stay put so long as you don't make any sudden movements but looking down suddenly can make them slip. They've been comfortable to wear for most of the day, the small cups allow my ears to breath but still do a reasonable job of reducing (but not eliminating) outside sound. The "push to hear" function works but not in a very natural way - it's fine for a quick conversation. There is a mute function which works when the headset profile is use by windows (otherwise it does the "push to hear") but has a slight lag before it takes effect and you get an audio cue when it comes on and off. Switching between a paired laptop and mobile phone isn't seamless in my experience - you need to manually connect to the headphones after switching and I found it a bit awkward. Not a big issue for me as I don't use this very often but worth noting. Battery life has been fine for me but I don't spend long listening to music. I've had the headsets turned on for 8 hours with a few zoom calls of around an hour and not had any problems. Overall I've been very pleased with the headphones.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent sound, very comfortable. I've never been happy with earbuds, so following a trawl of review sites I bought the AKG Y400. Of primary interest is the sound, of course, which is excellent and expansive. They are very nice looking, comfortable, not at all heavy, and fit well. Charging and connecting were trouble-free. in all, an extremely satisfactory purchase.
