”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 4 out of 5 by from Deep sound, and great value This is the second pair of these i've bought (I lost the first), as they're the best quality-for-price I've found. Really good, rich sound.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AKG Y500 headphones Really happy with the sound quality. There is (in my opinion) no loss of quality using Bluetooth. They are a great replacement for my outgoing 30 year old Phillips headphones. I would highly recommend the AKGs on sound quality at the price I paid (£69). Only thing I would upgrade for are larger cups as I prefer ones that cover my whole ear instead of these that are smaller and sit on the ear instead.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound at good price I have used wireless in ear headphones for last few years but always felt short changed on quality and depth of sound, decided to buy AKG Y500 headphones. Easy connection and feel comfy on ears, havnt worn for longer than 2 hours on dog walks or while working. Sound quality is impressive, clear and right amount of deep base. Would recommend these headphones, for sound and build quality without breaking the bank

Rated 4 out of 5 by from AKG Y500 - wired/wireless headphones Great looking and beautifully packaged product! Bought primarily for convenience for work video calls as they could be paired wirelessly with two devices at once, ideal if you wanted to listen to music on your phone and then had to seamlessly switch to a video call on a computer. This feature worked really well. For the price, the audio quality was decent, I liked the more natural sound they had, as often headphones colour the sound to what they think people like. Hear you still had decent separation of bass, mids and treble. Controls were easy to get used to. A touch on the quiet side (for my liking) although no distortion or loss of sound quality when turned up! Great value for what you get, couple with great service from Richer Sounds!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from They know what they're talking about. Been to Richer sounds before and was very happy so I went back when I wanted a new headset. Sales advisor was knowledgeable and courteous.
