”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 3 out of 5 by from Very light. Sounds good The headphones are good. But could do with head adjustment being able to make it smaller. It's based on a big head. They keep falling off the head. However they don't hurt the head after wearing for a long time compared to £20 Sony headphones.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AKG headphones Richer sounds select best in my view so they introduced me to AKG brand - on ear headphones offer great sound and great noise reduction . Discovered Alexander O’Neil track Critisize which delivered me to mid 80s sounds whilst the noise reduction meant I couldn’t hear my wife’s criticism- result and would recommend !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So well made and beautifully designed I love these headphones! This is my first pair of bluetooth headphones and the sound quality is really good, they're really comfortable to wear (even with glasses) and feel really well made. They come with a fabric bag and fold away neatly, they also sit nicely when hanging around the neck. The only negative thing I've noticed so far is the range on the bluetooth; with my ipad indoors and the headphones outside the signal did drop out a little, an issue I don't have with my wireless speaker, but since I'm likely to have my device nearby most of the time this isn't too much of an issue for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound at the price. Recently purchased to replace my old Sennheiser headphones that became very uncomfortable over even short listens. Similar price point but these seem far sturdier and of better build quality. They're comfy over lengthy listens (3 or 4 albums) and most importantly sound excellent. Easily connected to my phone with bluetooth and no drop out evident. AKG are definitely my go-to for headphones now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I needed Good headphones for the price. Plus Richer Sounds are always good and don't mess you about. Will buy from again in a few years when I need another hifi or whatever.
