”Excelling in sound and style, the Y50s win for a fifth year in a row.”– ‘What Hi-Fi’ 2018 Product of the Year award winner.

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 Top Grade Product This product is an excellent example of modest priced headphones. They are lightweight, very comfortable and give me , age 78, excellent sound from my tuner, phone and keyboard.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing sound, amazing price I bought these earphones a week ago and have been mightily impressed, I tried them out at the shop first and had my fingers crossed they'd be cheaper come black Friday and they were! Looking back, I got a steal, I'd happily pay full price for them if I needed too down the line. The sound is a massive step up from my koss porta pro (which I've never found anything in my budget even come close too) but these are another level. They give a wide soundstage, handle bass, mid range and high notes with equal levels of confidence allowing you to hear all your albums with a new clarity. I may be tempted to go to the next level of any in a few years I'm that impressed with these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best value headset I've ever bought I actually bought this headset for the computer a few months ago and was so impressed I bought a second for the music amp. Excellent sound, doesn't escape your own ears so the wife can listen to the TV at the same time. Also (and importantly) the metal head band will not easily break so should last a long time!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointing Although the sound was good the headphones have already fallen apart after not more than a week. Not sure what's happened as my previous AKG51 lasted years.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fantastic Sound & Very Comfortable I bought this product because I previously used the AKG Y50BT (Bluetooth version of these headphones) and I absolutely love their sound. The sound quality for the price is impossible to beat. These headphones sounds so clean in the way they deliver sound and there is a beautiful balance between the lows, mids, and the highs. The build quality is good. They are comfortable to wear, however as with most headphones, after a while they get uncomfortable. These headphones take a long while before they get there. I usually go on long bus rides (2 - 4 hours) and listen to music with them on and have not yet experiences any fatigue around the ears. My biggest problem is that they are in fact on ear headphones and they sometimes easily slide off my ears. That could be different from person to person though. The only real problem I found with these headphones is that I had to double even triple check the cable connection at the headphone port as it was twisted the wrong way or wasn't fully in even if it was what felt like a few nano meters. That's the only thing that really bugs me. Apart from that though it is the best pair of headphones I've owned at this price range. Even some headphones at much higher price ranges that I have owned don't compare to the sound of the AKG Y50's. Overall, a fantastic product that I am happy with.
