”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 AKG Y500 (Black) I purchased this for a birthday present for my brother who is very pleased with them

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Greate sound and style Purchased for my son who permanently seems to have them attached to his head. Excellent sound quality for the price and a style he is more than happy with and obviously comfortable the amount of time he wears them.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sound great and comfy but bad at reconnecting I owned a pair of wired AKG on-ear headphones for years and loved them. When I went to wireless I just used a cheap pair of over-ear and generally they were fine. I decided it was time to upgrade and bought myself a pair of AKG Y500 (and a pair for my husband as well) I was very excited when they arrived and generally impressed with the build quality, sound and comfort. Unfortunately, as I discovered the next day, when reconnecting to my laptop in the morning, the connection is really bad! I have no idea why. But when I turn the headphones on, they reconnect with my laptop fine, but the sound stutters in and out. I can replicate it again and again, turning the headphones off and on, playing different sources (Spotify, YouTube, local files) The only solution I've found is to disconnect and reconnect from my laptop Bluetooth. Which is really annoying and sometimes I have to repeat to get it to work. I want to be able to just switch the headphones on, connect and away we go. I shouldn't have to disconnect and reconnect from my laptop to get the connection to work properly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pair of headphones Really comfortable to wear, lightweight but sturdy, amazing sound for Bluetooth headphones. They last an incredible amount of time before needing to be charged too. Highly recommend, especially for this price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good for late night TV I bought these for late night TV viewing as they were recommended for me to be good with voice. They are very good indeed for the price, and I can certainly turn the volume up without disturbing the rest of the household.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice sound. I have a pair of AKG Y45s which I've had for over 5 years and are falling apart. These I think sound a bit better, and pretty good for the price. Bulkier than the Y45s. Too many functions and buttons, though. Overall, very nice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best value headphones on the market Excellent value, you won't get better than these for the price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great headphones, good noise cancellation Bought these a few weeks ago and they are great. The sound of great, work well in the strong Scottish winds, and look good too. Can be a little sore on the ears after a while however.
