”Excelling in sound and style, the Y50s win for a fifth year in a row.”– ‘What Hi-Fi’ 2018 Product of the Year award winner.

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 Great clear sound Tested the usual Sony & Panasonics in Currys next door to Richers Glasgow and of course the Beats which were indeed bassy. Then into Richer sounds for the Y50s' no comparison, by far the best, enough bass but the whole spectrum. Seem well built quality wise, using 8 weeks now . As a demo track I used Radioheads There There played on an iPhone SE, next purchase will be an audio lab DAC

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent and inexpensive I purchased the AKG Y50 headphones to replace a pair of old Sennheiser headphones that had fallen into disrepair. The Y50s absolutely match and possibly exceed the sound quality of the older headphones and perform far beyond the scope of their price while being far more portable due to their compact design. Very happy with this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great value for money It's safe to say these headphones punch comfortably above their weight. Standout features are their headspace and clarity across the frequency range, which in my experience are comparable to headphones around the £100 mark. Enough bass to satisfy electronic music listeners. Drawbacks would be its slight struggle with volume, the padding on the band, which could be a little softer, and the earpadding which is a little warmer than most headphones (though still comfy overall).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value, great sound! Bought these AKG Y50 to wear in the office (I use a pair of Grado SR80e for home use only as they leak sound). I've been impressed with the comfort, build quality, and most importantly the sound of the AKG Y50's. I have paired them with a Cambridge Audio DACMAGIC XS V2 and they sound fantastic. The bass is prominent but does not detract from the overall balanced sound of these headphones. I was convinced I was going to go for the more expensive Sennheiser MOMENTUM 2 headphones but the sound of the AKG's blew me away. Recommended.
