"Excelling in sound and style, the Y50s are a cracking introduction to AKGs latest range." What Hi-Fi Sound & Vision magazine. 5-star review. Tested at £80.

AKG SIGNATURE SOUND QUALITY


As you'd expect from this market-leading brand, the AKG 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 supplied for your home hi-fi). The larger cup size ensures a deep, dynamic bass response that still has the typical AKG precison and refinement. The closed-back design keeps both outside noise blocked and also prevents leakage from the headphones to the outside world - making them a more commuter friendly pair of headphones.

WITH BUILT-IN MIC FOR USE WITH YOUR SMARTPHONE

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 against your ears. The soft, padded, headband and ear pieces simply add to the long term comfort of these headphones. Although light and comfortable, the Y50s are durable, too. A detachable cable and folding design helps when transporting the headphones but you'll also discover a solid build quality that's a step or two up from many rivals. A soft travel pouch is also included with the headphones.

STYLE THAT'S AS UNIQUE AS YOU

With the AKG Y50s you can be as subtle or extravert as you want! For a discreet look chose the subtle black on black design. For a design with vibrant personality chose between red, yellow and teal versions - all with their own distinct vibe.

The perfect headphones for music on the go and at home and with a style for every taste, the AKG Y50s are another winner from AKG.
