”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 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality headphones at a good price This is the second pair I have bought (as birthday presents for my daughters) and they are great-sounding, withstand being thrown into college bags, and the detachable lead is a great idea. Comes with a good protective pouch. We have bought other similarly-priced headphones in the past, and have not lasted 6 months.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Top value Bought these to replace a knackered pair of B&W P3s. Now that I've settled in to the noticeably bassier sound I'm very happy with them: they're very comfortable (not so hot on the ears as I had heard), the sound is detailed and rich, and the design is sleeker than the images suggest. Quick delivery from Richer Sounds too was much appreciated. An excellent value pair of headphones for someone who cares about sound quality and design.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful sound The AKG headphones were purchased to complement the addition of a Cyrus Soundkey DAC for my smartphone listening of a wide variety of music. In the few weeks I have owned these I have found them to be well built and importantly, have excelled in the music stakes. Currently they are tremendous value for money and would thoroughly recommend them

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sound , fair price I bought this only a couple of weeks back after reading positive reviews on various websites. I was after a budget pair and wired ( I prefer sound quality over practicality ) so these seem to be ideal. Sound clarity is very good , I've noticed sounds on tracks that I didn't know existed( I use Deezer hifi). Only negative is that I'm still trying to get used to wearing them out and about( move around too much then they can start to slide off).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good sound, excellent value for money I’ve had the AKG Y50 headphones for two now and they are still sounding better every day as they a worn in. They were a little underwhelming to begin with, but now the sound very good indeed. The sound is balanced with good separation and a good soundstage. The cups fit so snugly the Y50s are almost noise cancelling (although this leads to much reported ear warning effect of the Y50s) All this makes for very immersive listening with all genres.
