"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 5 out of 5 by from Excellent sound I bought these headphones based on a friends recommendation and only richer sounds stocked them I rang them and the service I received was out standing and the quality of the product is second to none I could not tell the difference between other high end Bluetooth head phones! And these ybt50s there light weight and you sometimes forget there on your head . 100% recommend these .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Value I brought this product as a present for my fiance. I was very impressed with how smart they look in the flesh and they come with a handy pouch to keep them in. The sound quality is amazing and is so so easy to connect up to bluetooth. Over all this product is excellent for what you pay for it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best headphones I have ever used I have used a range of headphones over the years and these are the best I have ever used, wired or wireless. It is almost like having a new music collection, these headphones have allowed me to hear detail I have never heard before in music ranging from soul and RNB to rock and Jazz. The audio quality is simply outstanding. I read a number of reviews before going to buy and while in the store, I also tried the Y45BT's but they were no match for these. The fact that they're also available for £114 was just icing on the cake. I've used them for about a month in my office, on trains and on planes and they shut out almost all ambient noise without needing noise-cancelling functionality. The only reason I have not rated them 'excellent' for portability is that they're not the smallest headphones you'll come across and also because if you fold them up tightly, the left headphone can press on the right one and turn the headphones on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best product for the money I searched for about 3 days on and off scrolling through various websites for the best on-ear wireless headphones. I wasn't prepared to spend big but in the same breath I didn't want to buy cheap. In all the top 10 for various categories the AKG Y50BT was there. This I felt said a lot about the product as various review teams thought these headphones were one of the best on the market. Sound quality - Great, crisp and clear. Wireless functionality - I've mainly used these within 1m of my phone and as yet haven't experienced any drop outs or any other issues. Comfort - Very comfy when wearing these. I've used them at home and whilst at the gym and they've stayed on my head and remained comfy throughout. Price - Definitely value for money. Worth paying a little more than the standard cheap pair. Looks - One of the best I've seen on the market although could be better. I'd of preferred them to be less shiny, more sleek and low key.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sound That's Worth It First of all, best headphones I've ever bought. They are stunning in almost every way. The sound quality is definitely apparent here. I am an audiophile myself having owned other earphones and headphones like the Shure SE215 and Audio Technica, the AKG Y50BT stands tall because of its wireless and wired capabilities. What's great about the sound is you get to hear some sounds you've not heard when you use a different headphone. It's very balanced in terms of basses, mids and lows. The bass is just right and it doesn't make you tired from listening. It's comfortable but I think it's just my ears cause I don't usually wear on-ears but it gets a little uncomfortable after about an hour of usage. Anyway, you want headphones that pack a punch and sounds amazing then this is your go to headphone. You will never regret buying an AKG. I recommend this as a music producer and editor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent value for money The headphones connected at the first attempt, that made me happy. They are comfortable & the big plus is that there are no leads to tangle and break.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product at a great price Great product, easy to set up and use, working within minutes of unboxing. Getting it at the best price around with great customer service from Richer Sounds made it a fantastic purchase all round.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for listening, poor for speaking Sound quality paired up to my OnePlus 3T for audio is excellent and they are one of the more comfortable headphones I have used. I must have sensitive ear parts as any on-ear model tends to hurt after a couple of hours listening. If audio is your main use then I recommend these. However, I also need to use them as a phone headset and sadly the microphone suffers as it does in every other model of this style. It's just not loud enough and more than half my callers complain they can't hear me. I guess at the end of the day I will always need a boom mic ( and yes I have several pairs of headphones with this ) until someone can come up with a better answer.
