"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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from poor quality Not as good as Sony, JVC, or Panasonic headphone sets I own. Cannot take volume or bass, distorts very quickly. AKG are a well known brand for good sound and quality, this model suffers badly

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sounds great Brought this as a present for my boyfriend, he wanted headphones to listen to music while at work, he loves them so much he's using them all the time now. Finds them really comfortable to wear and thinks they sound amazing. For the price I couldn't recommend better headphones.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Detailed sound I have been using the AKG Y50BT headphones for a couple of weeks now, and can report that they fully deserve the 5 STAR rating awarded to them on "What Hi-Fi". They are comfortable to wear. Look good. And paired up to different devices I use via Bluetooth, easily and with no dropout in sound. Most importantly, they deliver a detailed, broad, spacious sound field with great clarity and depth. They don't boom out over the top bass. But render a sound that suits all my choices in music. Added to that there sub £100 price, it's hard to believe that there are other headphones in this price range that compete on sound, quality and price. Try them. You won't be dissapointed!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Headphones The headphones are a Christmas present for my sons, therefore haven't been used yet. But the AKG Y50BT headphones were recommended to me by a friend, who purchased a set a few years ago and said that they were excellent value for money.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good quality build not convinced on audio quality I bought these headphones recently to replace my previous pair of Superlux headphones. In general the build quality is fine and they are comfortable to wear but I'm not fully convinced that the sound quality is as good as my previous headphones - maybe they are just taking some getting used to. I should say that a casual music listener would probably love them, however I make my own electronic music so my expectations are perhaps a level higher.
