”Excelling in sound and style, the Y50s are superb portable headphones.” ’What Hi-Fi?’ 2019 Product of the Year.

AKG signature sound quality

As you'd expect from AKG, the Y50s boast class-leading sound quality. Larger than the Y40 models, the Y50s are ideal for use both on the move and at home (a 6.35mm adaptor plug is included). The larger cup size ensures a deep, dynamic bass that still has the typical AKG precision and refinement. The closed-back design keeps both outside noise blocked and prevents leakage - making them a more commuter friendly pair of headphones.

Built-in mic for smartphone use
Featuring a built-in microphone and one-button remote control, the Y50s are the perfect partner for most smartphones. Receive and drop phone calls without taking your phone out of your pocket or bag.

AKG quality and comfort
The unique 3D-axis mechanism doesn't just make these headphones easy to fold and carry, it also ensures a perfect fit. The soft, padded, headband and ear pieces simply add to the long term comfort. Although light and comfortable, the Y50s are durable, too. A detachable cable and folding design helps when transporting the headphones, while a solid build quality is a step or two up from many rivals. A soft travel pouch is also included.

The perfect headphones for music on the go and at home, the AKG Y50s are another winner from AKG.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tons of bass, great definition, excellent I owned these for a few years, they eventually fell apart in multiple places but I did get my money's worth. Now I'm thinking of buying another pair, as for Summer, my Audio-Tech 40s or 50s are a bit warm (though nice and light). In fact the AKGs do an admirable job in so far as I don't notice a degredation after using my Audio-Techs (which I love). Good, solid 'phones.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from well made good sounding phones for the price. I bought these last week as i needed a better sounding pair of phones on a budget. These fit the bill, not top of the range but you would be hard pressed to beat them at price point. I quite like that the cable detatches from the headphone cup.Great service from Jay again at richer sounds plymouth .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent headphones Did a fair bit of research looking at headphones in the under £100 bracket. I can say they have been an excellent purchase. Price at Richer Sounds extremely good and of course an all round friendly and professional service. What's not to like.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable and great sound. I have had these a couple of weeks now and really love them. They fold up into a neat little bag provided for easy transport. They are very comfortable, and the sound quality is great.
