”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 Good quality headphones at a good price This is the second pair I have bought (as birthday presents for my daughters) and they are great-sounding, withstand being thrown into college bags, and the detachable lead is a great idea. Comes with a good protective pouch. We have bought other similarly-priced headphones in the past, and have not lasted 6 months.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Top value Bought these to replace a knackered pair of B&W P3s. Now that I've settled in to the noticeably bassier sound I'm very happy with them: they're very comfortable (not so hot on the ears as I had heard), the sound is detailed and rich, and the design is sleeker than the images suggest. Quick delivery from Richer Sounds too was much appreciated. An excellent value pair of headphones for someone who cares about sound quality and design.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful sound The AKG headphones were purchased to complement the addition of a Cyrus Soundkey DAC for my smartphone listening of a wide variety of music. In the few weeks I have owned these I have found them to be well built and importantly, have excelled in the music stakes. Currently they are tremendous value for money and would thoroughly recommend them

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sound , fair price I bought this only a couple of weeks back after reading positive reviews on various websites. I was after a budget pair and wired ( I prefer sound quality over practicality ) so these seem to be ideal. Sound clarity is very good , I've noticed sounds on tracks that I didn't know existed( I use Deezer hifi). Only negative is that I'm still trying to get used to wearing them out and about( move around too much then they can start to slide off).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good sound, excellent value for money I’ve had the AKG Y50 headphones for two now and they are still sounding better every day as they a worn in. They were a little underwhelming to begin with, but now the sound very good indeed. The sound is balanced with good separation and a good soundstage. The cups fit so snugly the Y50s are almost noise cancelling (although this leads to much reported ear warning effect of the Y50s) All this makes for very immersive listening with all genres.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unbeatable sound and build quality for the price. Anyone looking for a pair of hi-fi quality headphones for their morning commute really can't go wrong with these stylish beauties. I'm tempted to say there's no need to add the usual caveat '...for the price' as they compete in terms of sound and looks with headphones three times the cost. High frequencies are handled with practically no sibilance, even at high volume, mids are warm and detailed and the bass is sufficiently prominent to please bass-heads without rattling your fillings loose. All this wrapped up in an extremely stylish package that, again, belies the sub £50 price tag. Richer Sounds have done it again!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not good sound at all - avoid I bought & returned these straight away swapped for sennheiser hd300s. Sound is mushy, no detail and the bass booms completely overpowering the rest of the music. They look the business but that's about it. No idea how these got a what hi-fi award, honestly. Avoid.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great headphones. Great Value Having been a fan on AKG headphones for years now, I was keen to upgrade my 13yr old from his tinny earbuds and bass-free Beats wannabes. A trip to RS and a few questions later and we were sorted Son amazed that the music sounds so different - clarity and bass were something he’d assumed had no place in music! Very happy, but his younger brother also wants a pair!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sound, great value These headphones have a very good sound quality in my opinion. The build quality is not the best but these phones seem to work as well as some I could mention that are many times the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product. Solid 7/10 Bought this around a week or 2 ago, great pair of headphones, work well with the DAC (sound key) that i bought, the overall quality is great. Pros: - The sound from the headphones is very clear, punchy rhythm and great/detailed bass. - Fold/portable. - they are small on-ear headphones not so much over ear. Cons: - They do get warm after a while. - best headphones for under £100 These headphones have won awards for best portable on-ear headphones.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent budget cans Sound quality is decent, and very little bleed from external noise. Good to get a universal cable, and the pouch is ok. Ears get quite warm after a while is then only minor negative, otherwise very comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible!!! I’ve had various headphones (cheap and expensive) but these little beauties, wow, incredible value for money. Now I know wireless is today’s thing and maybe I’m old skool, the detail, balance and bass in these AKG Y50’s just has to be heard. Everyone’s different so it’s just my opinion. Love ‘em!

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!
