"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 5 out of 5 by from Excellent all round headphones. Purchased as a present for my daughter who is a very demanding music listener with eclectic tastes. Sound quality, weight, comfort and battery life all met and exceed her expectations.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic bluetooth headphones. Loving my Y50bt headphones. I bought the wired varient the Y50's in April but was a little bit disappointed by a lack of volume when paired with my Samsung Galaxy S8. The Y50bt cans are brilliant louder and nothing lost in sound quality and detail due to the bluetooth connectivity. The sales ad Andrew in your Edinburgh store was excellent, knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. A definite 5 stars all round.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very pleased 1 week, so far it’s great noise cancellations, bass at a good time, battery life long, Bluetooth connects well with a gentle beep. Weight and mobility of headphones of quality material and structure. After a while ears can feel a little achey, this model sticks out quite a lot from the head. Overall very pleased with the sound.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Sound quality I bought these earphones a few weeks ago because I wanted some earphones that sat on my ear. Unfortunately I find them quite bulky and tight on the ears after about 30 minutes. an hour is the maximum I can wear them. The sound is really good though, but wish I had purchased some lighter headphones now. Also the most annoying feature is that when they are folded up in the pouch, it is so easy for them to turn themselves on, as the buttons rub together. This ruins the fact that they are foldable as you have to keep checking they are not turned on. Very happy with the sound quality, but disappointed with the comfort factor and the turning on accidentally when in my bag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well worth the money I walked into the shop looking to buy some £50 headphones, but the helpful staff showed me these while chatting. The proof was in the pudding - as soon as I tried them on the quality was so obvious. Lightweight and immediately comfortable, and then the sound kicked in... so crisp and clear that I felt it would be a dishonour to my music to buy a cheaper set. One month in and I'm still in love with them. Getting the Bluetooth version has also proved to be a good decision - flexibility of movement without any sound loss - and easily switches between different devices, pairing easily too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing value There cannot be a better pair of wireless headphones out there at this price. The battery life is impressive. I'm sure I have been using them for over 20 hours and they're still going on a single charge. The fit is comfortable although they do sometimes feel heavy. Probably not for running but great for commuting. A better sound than headphones twice the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Wireless Headphones Bought these for the gym and general use. The sound quality is great. Bluetooth connectivity works well, is easy to set up and has a good battery life. Pads are comfortable to wear and don't feel to warm (the little letters L and R indicating left and right are a really useful and underrated feature). Folds away neatly. Comes with a USB charging cable, wired connection cable (when your battery runs out) and a nice bag to keep everything in. I would always recommend trying headphones on in-store first to get a sense of how they feel and size. Overall I am impressed and can say they live up to their high reputation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best headphones I have ever owned Excellent sound quality via Bluetooth (and cable). I have used them mainly for the TV and have also used with my phone playing Flac files. I can't hear any difference to the reproduction between cable or Bluetooth, which is surprising. The Bluetooth signal/connection is also excellent, and they work in other rooms from the source. Lastly, the battery life is great, not had to recharge them since purchase.
