”Fantastic design, good audio performance and clever features ensure these Y500s are a crowd-pleasing hit.”– ‘What Hi-Fi’ – 5 Star review. Tested at £129.

Top quality AKG sound

With many decades of award-winning history, AKG are leaders in sound quality. One listen to the Y500s and you’ll hear why. Dedicated AKG drive units produce a powerful and detailed sound. Not only do they effortlessly drop to pick up the deepest bass notes, they also produce a crystal-clear clarity at the top end, making them true all-rounders.

Connect to any phone or tablet, with wireless Bluetooth
Using wireless Bluetooth connectivity not only makes these headphones more comfortable but also lets you connect up to a wider range of smartphones and tablets. Simply pair with any Bluetooth equipped music device and you’re good to go – no need to worry about socket compatibility.

Ambient Aware technology
Ambient Aware technology lets you keep in touch with your surroundings without pausing or stopping the music. At the touch of a button, the music decreases in volume, letting you clearly hear announcements and other speech. Take off the headphones mid flow and the music also automatically pauses, resuming when you put the headphones back on.

Effortlessly switch between music and calls on different devices
Multi-point connectivity lets you easily switch between music and calls. Simply create a link between your portable music player (such as a Hi-Res portable) and smartphone and switch effortlessly between them. The on-cup controls adjust the volume and audio with a built-in mic fitted for calls.

33 hours battery life and speed charge
A generous 33 hours of battery life gives these headphones a week’s worth of commuting music. Recharge time with the supplied cable is 2.5 hours but a quick 5-minute recharge is enough for a whole hour’s playback – perfect for when you’ve forgotten to charge the headphones overnight and you’re late for work.

Comfort on the move
It’s not just the lack of wires make these headphones comfortable but also the softly padded, memory foam ear cups and headband. Swivel fit ear pieces adapt to make the perfect contact with your ears, giving even pressure and optimised sound quality.

With a perfect blend of sound, style and comfort, the AKG Y500 headphones lead their class.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing The only important thing to note is that you have to hold down the buttons on both sides for 5 seconds to stop them from pausing what you are watching/listening to because you are moving

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great, but too tight. I think they're great... But they aren't suitable for usage over long periods of time. They are too tight and hurt my ears. I actually almost regret getting them because of this. I wanted to be able to use them while I work, and I can't.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Unnessarily loud notification sound The notification sounds are way too loud and cannot be turned off. I cannot understand how this product got through the design/QA phase. I purchased as an upgrade from AKG Y50BT which was an excellent product and I wanted the same experience.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Battery Life Sound quality is average, doesn't blow your socks off nor is it bad, just what you expect from reasonably priced headphones. The battery life on these are great, and the fact they are also 3.5mm jack compatible is great for when they run out of juice. The ambient noise tech only works when being used via BlueTooth and besides that, it's lacking on the technology front. That being said, ear fatigue sets in after 30mins-1hour, and you can't use these in any setting where you are not upright as they will just fall off your head.
