”Excelling in sound and style, the Y50s are superb portable headphones.” ’What Hi-Fi?’ 2019 Product of the Year.

AKG signature sound quality

As you'd expect from AKG, the Y50s boast class-leading sound quality. Larger than the Y40 models, the Y50s are ideal for use both on the move and at home (a 6.35mm adaptor plug is included). The larger cup size ensures a deep, dynamic bass that still has the typical AKG precision and refinement. The closed-back design keeps both outside noise blocked and prevents leakage - making them a more commuter friendly pair of headphones.

Built-in mic for smartphone use
Featuring a built-in microphone and one-button remote control, the Y50s are the perfect partner for most smartphones. Receive and drop phone calls without taking your phone out of your pocket or bag.

AKG quality and comfort
The unique 3D-axis mechanism doesn't just make these headphones easy to fold and carry, it also ensures a perfect fit. The soft, padded, headband and ear pieces simply add to the long term comfort. Although light and comfortable, the Y50s are durable, too. A detachable cable and folding design helps when transporting the headphones, while a solid build quality is a step or two up from many rivals. A soft travel pouch is also included.

The perfect headphones for music on the go and at home, the AKG Y50s are another winner from AKG.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful sound! I bought the AKG Y50 when headphones broke while working away from home. I couldn't face the long train journey without music! The sound quality is excellent, for both voice and instruments. Very very pleased with them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from nice sounds and bass, not too big and not too smal They sound nice but the quality of the cable has a lot to be desired, immediately after purchasing it was easily damaged and I had to buy a new one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressive sound for the money I bought these for my daily commute and I'm impressed. From a practical perspective they do a decent job of blocking out external noise and leakage from the headphones themselves is minimal. They collapse fairly well for storage and come with a neoprene style bag. However, more importantly they sound great, good detail with ample bass and pound for pound they definetly punch above their weight. Only slight issue is they make my ears get a bit hot, now we're in the winter months it's not such a bad thing, but in the summer it might be a bit uncomfortable. Still, at £59 they are a bargain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great price, great sound Bought these as replacements for much loved pair of AKGs. I use them everyday with my Fiio on my commute and the sound is great. Very comfortable fit and lovely on ear feel. The wired version have a detachable cable from the ‘phones giving assurance to idiots like me who keep catching the cable. The result is that when snagged, the cable pulls loose and can be simply reconnected. Brilliant!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AKG Y50, Awesome for the money My old Sennheiser HD 350's finally bit the dust after more than 20 years of good service. Not having a lot of money I bought the AKG Y50's not knowing what to expect. They sounded good from the start but after a week or so breaking them in, I'm really impressed. If you are looking for good quailty headphones at a reasonable price these are it. Richer Sounds delivered on time as always, and with an excellent product.
