"These AKGs are quite something. Bluetooth headphones that sound just as good as their wired counterparts." What Hi-Fi Sound & Vision Award Winner 2016.

Wireless freedom with Bluetooth

Wireless meets award-winning design with the AKG Y50BT headphones. Simply pair them up with your Bluetooth compatible smartphone, tablet, laptop, PC or Mac and you're ready to listen - cable free. The Y50BT uses rechargeable batteries that can provide up to 20 hours of music playback. A USB cable is provided for recharging and, with a standard 3.5mm cable supplied, the music can continue, even when you've exhausted the batteries.

AKG signature sound quality
The AKG Y50BTs boast class-leading sound quality. Larger than the Y40 models, the Y50s are ideal for use both on the move and at home. The larger size gives a deep, dynamic bass response that still has the typical AKG precison and refinement. The closed-back design keeps both outside noise blocked and also prevents leakage from the headphones to the outside world - making them a more commuter friendly pair of headphones.

Simple, effortless control and with mic built-in
With a clear and easy to locate control panel on the side of one earpiece, it's easy to control the Y50BT. Adjust the volume, play/pause, skip tracks and answer/drop calls all from the earpiece control pad (note, when running in passive/cabled mode these functions no longer operate). With a built-in microphone on one of the earpieces, it's also easy to make and receive hands-free calls.

AKG quality and comfort
The unique 3D-axis mechanism doesn't just make these headphones easy to fold and carry, it also gives a perfect fit against your ears. The soft, padded, headband and ear pieces simply add to the long term comfort of these headphones. Although light and comfortable, the Y50BTs are durable, too. The folding design helps when storing the headphones - as does the lack of cable! A soft travel pouch is also included.

Top quality sound with wireless freedom - AKG does it better than anyone in its class.

2 year limited guarantee included

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Input socket is faulty Great headphones until one side of the input socket has now got an intermittent fault. Replaced the lead from the PC to the headphones, still getting the same fault. I assume that a wire has come loose inside the headphones. Purchased 20-04-2020. Only one ear output working is not great for stereo headphones.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lovely balanced sound and easy to wear Very impressed with the sound. It is nicely balanced, not being too bias to lower frequencies. Also very easy to wear with good sound isolation. Ears do not get crushed but they feel secure on the head. They perform very well as a pair of wired headphones and the Bluetooth is a real bonus!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent build and sound quality Bought for my 10 year old to replace a pair of Sony Bluetooth headphones. He loves them, better sound quality and they look 'cooler' , according to him. What would I know?! I'm 50.... Anyway, a thumbs up from him

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Value for your money These are true value for the money, connectivity is excellent, with a decent range and sound quality for the price is very good, perhaps the only down side for me was after a long time they become a little uncomfy on the ears

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprised Wow I've had various headphones over the years, but these AKG literally opened my ears. The 3D sound is so good , I spent hours on YouTube watching 3D audio vids. So good iam now listening to music more often now. Looking forward to pairing them to my new Yamaha RXV6A, which has just arrived. Thank you Richer Sounds
