Y45BT is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome headphones for my needs I was looking into some wire free headsets for many purposes. Office, Gym, and Auto. The Bluetooth works seamlessly, and the sound excellent as you would expect from AKG. The fit is snug which even allows use while running on the treadmill. Even better, the battery life is excellent (I only charge a couple times a week). The only thing you have to keep tabs on is the cell phone battery as the Bluetooth use consumes more battery (as expected). All in all, I'm glad I made the purchase and would be staying with the brand(s) in the future.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great value for money! Excellent sound and portability, ease of use and value for money (£69.99). Works great with my android Nexus 6P as well as other bluetooth devices such as my tablet and mac. Great for traveling wire-free.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ins, Outs, and What-Have-Yas For me, the product has been a bit of a mixed bag. I'll break it down down into pros and cons. Pros: - Excellent sound quality for a consumer-grade product - Better range than many of its counterparts (although I'd still like it to be better, more below) - Easily integrates with Windows 10 and contemporary mobile platforms - Control options on the device itself are convenient - Included accessories (carrying pouch and cables) are good quality Cons: - The earpads are too hard and too small - The fit is a little too tight and makes extended use uncomfortable (I wear eyeglasses, and the headphones cause my ears to hurt from being pressed against the stems after as little as an hour of use) - I've had issues linking with the Windows 7 Bluetooth adaptor - Obstructions severely limit transmission range - Bypass cable connects to the right channel instead of the left - No separate transmission device I purchased these headphones to replace an old pair of AKG K840KL, which I prefer in every way. They were larger, more comfortable, had better range and longer battery life than the Y45BT, but most significantly, they utilized a separate transmitter so that the K840KL could be used with any audio device, not only those with Bluetooth capability. Had I known that ahead of time, it may have proved a deal-breaker. Also, a word about the range. Unimpeded, the range is fantastic. In my office, for example, I can leave my cubicle and go to the kitchenette (~15 m away) without any disruption in the signal from my laptop. However, my office has an open layout, and there are no significant impediments on the entire floor. At home, it's a different story. I'm unable to reliably transmit from my PC (via dongle) to my kitchen on the other side of the wall (less than 5 m lateral distance). I'm considering other transmission options which may improve the signal at home, but I'm not expecting a great deal of improvement. Lastly, I have my concerns about the product's durability. I've only had the Y45BT for a few weeks, and so nothing's broken as of yet, but I feel very uneasy about subjecting them to anything untoward. The travel case helps to allay those concerns somewhat in terms of transport, however, their size and build strike me as quite delicate, and I'm afraid that one drop could spell disaster. Having said that, the only reason that I purchased these headphones was because the transmitter for my old K840KL's proved to be less than durable, and obviously consumers shouldn't expect wireless products to be built like tanks. Nevertheless, I've been consistently disappointed with the longevity of AKG products since it moved away from the niche of professional audio and began to court a wider consumer market, and in the absence of a satisfactory alternative, I would like to see AKG improve their products in this regard.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great sound, but not built to last Had these for about 2 years and have taken great care of them. BUT! 1. Ear pads / cushions wear out quickly 2. The fixings on the ear pads (discs) come loose easily and make for uncomfortable wearing. Shame as these sound great for the money.

Do the headphones have replacement rechargeable battery's and where can they be purchased.

Asked by: Alfiemac
Hi. Sorry, replacement battery is not available as original spare part. You would have to find a suitable battery from another source, if that is even possible.
