Y50BT is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from After reading several professional reviews stating that this is the best set of headphones in its class at this price point, I purchased this pair of headsets as a gift for my 27 yr. old nephew who is in computer networking and somewhat of a techie. He said that the headphones are great sounding and very comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You won't regret this purchase. Would buy again and again. Exceptional sound and battery life. Deep, accurate base. Very detailed throughout the range. They don't get hot on my ears like my over-ear Sennheisers. Comfortable, but a little heavy if you're on the move. Like if I stand up and they're not centered, they'll slide off my head. Sound does transfer when taking steps too, may be the seal to my ear giving. Instant pairing is nice but occasionally it doesn't pick up and I have to go into my phone settings. Sometimes it picks up when they're in my work bag and I have to turn Bluetooth to severe connection.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Got these for Christmas just past, and they are without shadow of doubt, the BEST headphones I've ever had. The build quality, sound quality, ease of use... I coupled these with my Oneplus 2 phone with a maxxaudio equaliser, and they're simply brilliant. 10/10

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best value and then some ... by far! I bought these headphones after listening to a demo set in Korea while on vacation. They were at a high end resort in a high end shop. The sound was absolutely incredible for a bluetooth set. I was afraid that these would cost a fortune though. The fit is comfortable. The design blocks out just enough noise to make them very pleasant. The sound quality it superb especially given the price. You will not find another set of headphones with this quality at this price. I would argue that you won't find a set this good at double the price. The battery lasted me about 18 hours. Seriously, do you really need it to last longer? But, there is more ... the awesome thing is you can use the supplied cable to wire these directly to your device should your battery die. Really though, who listens to music or whatever for more than 20 hours straight? Bottom line is buy these and you will not be sorry. I am very picky when it comes to sound quality and even more picky when it comes to value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally amazing sounding bluetooth headphones! I had tried many pairs of bluetooth headphones prior to getting the Y50's and every time i listened to them it was such a compromise in sound quality just to have the bluetooth feature. When i tried the Y50's i was shocked that it was really bluetooth as all my other experiences were so poor. I am an audio engineer so i am very aware of what my music should sound like and the Y50's nailed the perfect tonal balance and audio quality. It seems like they are using the latest bluetooth specs and codecs so that what I'm hearing back is excellent with no artifacts. Battery life is great too. No downsides so far....... Only wish they came out a few years ago

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Spoil your ears! These are simply one of the best things you will ever listen to. They will definitely spoil your ears to the point where loudspeakers will sound sub standard unless you invest in a really high end system. These are able to handle absolutely any type of music with finesse and class. The WhatHiFi 5 star review is definitely justified!

Are these compatible with other hardware, like a xbox one?

Asked by: Nimue02
You can connect the Y50BT to your Xbox One's gaming controller using the included headset cable.  The Y50BT works with various Bluetooth source devices. Unless Microsoft has administered some form of update, the Xbox One will not work with the Y50BT via Bluetooth. Please contact Xbox customer support for details on wireless headset connection.

The button that you use for moving forward or backward doesn't work anymore . IPhone 6 with the last update if IOS. My model is C50BT

Asked by: Alain8
You may try pairing it with other devices to check if the issue only happens when your headphones are paired with your iPhone 6. If the buttons work on other devices, it may be a compatibility issue running the latest iOS on your iPhone. I noticed that you are in Canada. If the issue persists after using a different source device, please send an e-mail to info@eriksonconsumer.com and our Customer Service team will be more than happy to further assist you.

When it is connected to the computer will it act as a audio device( so that i can listen to music from computer without external audio card or 3.5 mm jack) or just charge the device?

Asked by: samsymon
The Y50BT is a Bluetooth enabled headphone. You may pair it to your computer via Bluetooth. Just make sure that your computer has the Bluetooth driver that supports A2DP audio codec and most importantly, that it has Bluetooth. Once connected, it will act as an audio device so you can listen to music.
