”Fantastic design, good audio performance and clever features ensure these Y500s are a crowd-pleasing hit.”– ‘What Hi-Fi’ – 5 Star review. Tested at £129.

Top quality AKG sound

With many decades of award-winning history, AKG are leaders in sound quality. One listen to the Y500s and you’ll hear why. Dedicated AKG drive units produce a powerful and detailed sound. Not only do they effortlessly drop to pick up the deepest bass notes, they also produce a crystal-clear clarity at the top end, making them true all-rounders.

Connect to any phone or tablet, with wireless Bluetooth
Using wireless Bluetooth connectivity not only makes these headphones more comfortable but also lets you connect up to a wider range of smartphones and tablets. Simply pair with any Bluetooth equipped music device and you’re good to go – no need to worry about socket compatibility.

Ambient Aware technology
Ambient Aware technology lets you keep in touch with your surroundings without pausing or stopping the music. At the touch of a button, the music decreases in volume, letting you clearly hear announcements and other speech. Take off the headphones mid flow and the music also automatically pauses, resuming when you put the headphones back on.

Effortlessly switch between music and calls on different devices
Multi-point connectivity lets you easily switch between music and calls. Simply create a link between your portable music player (such as a Hi-Res portable) and smartphone and switch effortlessly between them. The on-cup controls adjust the volume and audio with a built-in mic fitted for calls.

33 hours battery life and speed charge
A generous 33 hours of battery life gives these headphones a week’s worth of commuting music. Recharge time with the supplied cable is 2.5 hours but a quick 5-minute recharge is enough for a whole hour’s playback – perfect for when you’ve forgotten to charge the headphones overnight and you’re late for work.

Comfort on the move
It’s not just the lack of wires make these headphones comfortable but also the softly padded, memory foam ear cups and headband. Swivel fit ear pieces adapt to make the perfect contact with your ears, giving even pressure and optimised sound quality.

With a perfect blend of sound, style and comfort, the AKG Y500 headphones lead their class.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Upside and downside These were intended to be a replacement for some K845's I'd bought that developed a fault. I wasn't expecting them to be as good and they aren't - but the sound quality when wire-connected is adequate for my needs. Wirelessly it degrades a little and power is lacking but they're OK-ish. The downside part is a quirky feature they have that doesn't seem to work too well. There's a very good What HiFi review that is pretty much on the money with these headphones and identifies the same problem I have. The "feature" is autoplay / pause when you take off / put on the headphones. The What HiFi guys had trouble with it - on my pair it bizarrely starts autoplaying music at random when I put them on. You can disable the feature, but it defaults back on whenever you power up (in bluetooth mode). Drives me mad so they're going back and I will probably replace them with some Sennheisers. Who comes up with these ideas, and why don't they ever test them properly? Hey ho.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really impressive sound, foldable design is great I have been a loyal AKG customer for 7-8 years. I had a pair of AKG451 for 5 years that just died so I was looking for a wired, foldable solution. I am skeptical of Bluetooth and I was hoping not to spend more than £50. After doing loads of research and visiting Richer Sounds twice to try out different options, I was pursuaded by the sales person to go with these Bluetooth AKG's as they fold up nicer than the others and, more importantly, they sound fantastic. Very happy with them thus far!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best price, great product. Bought these as a gift, recipient was delighted with them. Richer sounds had the best price. The only criticism is I had to change the delivery date as it wasn't scheduled for when I asked, don't know whether this was down to the retailer or DPD, but easily remedied.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Another solid pair of headphones I bought these as my first wireless headphones, from AKG from whom I have always enjoyed their wires headphones. They have detail and precision and comfort. However, 3 months later I bought a pair of Lindy BNX60’s, for half the price, and I much prefer these as more punchy/weighty sound, able to play at higher volume, more comfortable, and excellent noise cancelling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Features and really long battery life. I wanted some Bluetooth speakers for my commute each day and these fit the bill perfectly. They are easy to use, look stylish and the battery lasts for ages. My ears do ache a bit after wearing them for long periods . -over 3 hours. But overall very happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality and good value I've been using these headphone for around 2 weeks and have been very impressed, especially considering the price compared to other options. Comfort - The on ear fit was a little odd at first but after a day of wearing them it become extremely comfortable. The band is well proportioned so they fit securely without much pressure. I wear glasses and the fit doesn't hurt where the arm sits behind the ear. Sound - Sound quality is good but I wouldn't say I was blown away. Battery - The battery life is incredible. I charged them the first night that I got them and have only reached 80% battery now. Features - Some good features. Having volume control and pause on the left is handy. If you pause something and take them off they will auto unpause when you put them back on. This is a great feature except they get a little confused if you wear them around your neck while you've paused. All round I'm very happy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Aka y500 wireless headphones Only had these for a few days, so difficult to assess, first impressions are they sound good and may improve with time when they loosen up, not overly bassy with some nice separation in the mid ranges. Comfortable on the head for the 30 mins I have worn them with plenty of adjustment and not heavy. Easy to Bluetooth to my iPhone and pack away nicely for ease of storage. Sonically, for £100 I am positive they would give a £300+ pair a run for their money as long as you don’t want 3 levels of noise cancelling and Alexa capability.
