”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 5 out of 5 by from Good performance, good price. Replaced an old pair of Sony RF phones with bluetooth adaptor for TV and these to go with it. They do the job nicely, build quality is very good and at a reasonable price. They can slip on the head a bit but not too badly, I can't do in-ear and didn't want big over ear ones, so I am happy with these.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Light, comfy, great sound Had these a few weeks. Sound fantastic, much better than expected at this price. The ambient sound button is a bit rubbish; just turns em down a bit. Bluetooth reception is fantastic - throughout a three story house, no drops

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good sound, comfortable at a reasonable price e Have been wearing 2 or 3 hours a night. On ear, comfortable, stays in place, but wouldn't use at the gym. Battery life, only had for a week but lasted that time no problem. Tried the ambient aware, adds a background buzz, may work on noisier rooms, but I've got it turned off. After 1 week I'd recommend

Needed a decent pair of wireless headphones with mic for walking and running . They are brilliant . Fantastic sound quality on music and clear when using phone. Fold up into a great pouch with extra lead if the charge runs out . Easy to wear and comfortable

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent value and good sounding headphones I bought these on ear lightweight headphones for my Wife who has difficulty in using ear buds, because of a physical condition. She is delighted with them and finds them very easy to use. They pair very quickly with her smartphone or tablet and have an excellent battery life.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from not as good as I'd hoped Overall nice quality material, comfortable but I found listening slightly fatiguing. So for me not as good as I'd been hoping for, given all the good reviews.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great headphones. I really didn't want to upgrade or move on from my AKG K450s but the pads finally disintegrated. Did some research, found a good price with Richer and ordered the Y500. Connectivity was easy as pie and the fact you can connect to two devices simultaneously was great. These were my first wireless headphones and are so easy to use and setup. The sound is great and using them with my phone and PC for file based releases, I am (cliché alert) hearing detail I've not heard before. I can't describes sounds very well, but I love the detail and there is enough inherent warmth and separation that I have no complaints at all sound wise. Using the 3.5 jack, I connected the headphones to my Xbox, disabling my mic in the xbox settings as to mute, you have to hold down the "answer" in line button. A mute slider could have benefitted here but I understand these are not gaming headphones. Still, I'm glad I used them as the depth perception offered with the stereo improved my FPS game immeasurably, giving me an accurate feel for where unseen enemies might be running or lurk. In Battlefield V for instance in a massive clump of bushes I could hear the leaves and branches slowly moving as an enemy crawled through to such a degree that zeroing in on them was easy. I felt like I was cheating. Musically I've been listening to Fiona Apple, Mr. Bungle, Super Furry Animals, dEUS, The Breeders, The Comet Is Coming... music from a variety of genres and they've been great - absolutely no complaints. The AKG K450s I'm replacing with these are basically a set I use for travelling. Normally short journeys of 1-3 hours by plane or train. I can't wait for the next trip as these are already more comfortable but if I have one gripe, it's that they're quite warm as no air gets circulated, probably in an effort to avoid sound escaping. This might mean that longer sessions will become uncomfortable. If that's the case, then I will need to take breaks. I can't give any genuine fault other than their suitability for long sessions, but that said, I'd be inclined at home on longer sessions to use my Grado 125i's.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AKG - Another Winning Set of Headphones ! I owned an earlier, similar (but wired) model of these headphones, which lasted for years before they packed up. So I decided to invest in another pair of AKG's and these are a revelation ! Great quality build, with good frequency range, giving a a very clear and precise top-end, but punchy bass as well. Great, very easy to setup Bluetooth, with clever features such as noise supression, but also stops the music when you take them off, and restarts automatically when you put them back on. Collapsible design, so they fold up small and make it very easy to transport them. Hard to beat the quality at this price !
