"The Y50s don't put a foot wrong as a pair of portable cans - and they're now even more affordable" What Hi-Fi Sound & Vision Award Winner 2016

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 3 out of 5 by from the sound is dull. Not as good as I thought they might be. The sound from a cheaper pair of Thomson head phones seems more rounded and better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Decent headphones for the price.... Quite impressed by the sound from these cans and even more impressed by the excellent advice given by the assistant that served me. I am very pleased with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product and service I love the quality of these headphones which are very comfortable to wear and at a very reasonable price as well. The service and speed of delivery was second to none. I will definitely use this company again. Thanks for a great experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well pleased I've read all the reviews on these cans and so I had to get them and they are wicked the one thing I would say the lead could do with being longer

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hard Enough For Bassie House, Subtle Enough For Mozart I have them on right now, bought them 3 hours ago. I'm trying to push them to their limit, they're just laughing at me an saying 'is that all you've got ?'. The bass is right there, tried 'Your Loft, My Acid' - Death In Vegas - because of that core vibrating sub bass, no problem. 'Okay' I said, 'how about some Bach?' 'Air On A G-String' was as light as a feather, Mozart's Mass In D Minor was so well defined I swear i could hear the chorus drawing breath. Now I'm onto Josefin Ohrn +The Liberators, weird trans psychedelic fuzz boxed jangly guitars laced with euro pop. They're a Swedish band i'm sure are going to smash it in the years to come (think of Goldfrap with some very adult attitude and a guitar). It's filling me with so much joy I actually feel like i want to cry, my grin is of the huge kaka eating kind. I was lucky enough to catch these on an offer of £39, sadly for you dudes and dudettes reading this they're back up to £79. I'd still buy them, they're an absolute bargain!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really good headphones. Bought these as a replacement for my Bayer Dynamics DTX 501p headphones. They are a bigger but still comfortable. The sound quality is very good as well from my stereo system with a good bass. Well made and with an adapter included.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointing for me. Got the Y50's for my birthday after reading the What HiFi Awards. I was disappointed and I would have liked to have returned them. First the good points: the Y50s are well made and fold down to fit the pouch supplied, the detachable cable is a good idea. They look good. They look like a premium product. Bad points: they are just not comfortable, I have owned many different brands however the Y50s are too uncomfortable for me. Then I might just be me, I would try them on before you buy. I also found that you need to turn the volume a bit higher than other headphones but the bass becomes too strong. Overall well made, good looking and good value, but comfort and sound are not to my taste. Its a pity, but I cannot use them.
