”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 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 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound and value of money I bought these for my son for his birthday and he loves them. The sound quality is excellent, they are very comfortable to wear and easy to use. Compares very well with more expensive brands

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sound and well built A great pair of headphones that give the sound quality I expect from this manufacutrer. The flat sound is spot on and Bass just right, not overpowering. I love the simple pairing to 2 devices at the same time, when Vinyl record finishes it straight over to streeming. Just 2 nagaitives for me, 1) the hard wire chord is flimsy and could be better quality. I like to connect without bluetooth and have a quality extension chord which is compomised by the supplied chord. 2) These are on ear and quite heavy so can move about when you move you head.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality sound long lasting charge Excellent across all types of music from dubstep to classical and everything in between compact they go everywhere with me
