What customers say about "Size & Weight"

  • I’ve found them to be very comfortable even with my fat head (size 7 5/8)! The headband has just enough padding and the earphone pads are soft.

  • Excellent build quality - now had them 2.5 years and I haven’t been careful with them, yet they still look and function as new.

What customers say about "Features"
AKG Y50BT Portable Foldable On-Ear Rechargeable Bluetooth Headphones - Blue
  • Bluetooth connectivity is very good and I’ve used them up to 15 metres from my phone with no problem.
  • The sound quality is truly superb, they look amazing and for the most part are pretty comfortable.
  • So far I'm really impressed with these headphones - I'm not a huge audiophile but love the sound, the bass is deep and I don't feel I'm losing out on the higher notes either.
  • Pairing them is easy - I've linked them to several devices. I've noticed that on a couple of devices you get an icon in the top menu bar that shows the headphones are connected and the battery level.
  • Sound quality is great. They can't reach K701 levels obviously, however these are the best portable I have ever listen
AKG Y500 Wireless Headphones - Black
  • What I found the coolest was that the headphones pause the music when they're removed which is super handy.
  • The bluetooth pairs easily and the headphones can be paired to multiple devices and switches over effortlessly.
  • The AKG Y500s go over your head with a cushioned, adjustable headphone band and memory foam ear cups. The headband feels more air filled.
  • They are quite comfortable, with the usual adjustable headband. Outside sound was blocked very effectively, which is surprising for over the ear headphones.
  • The design of these headphones are look wise very good. Very catchy.
