Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable & Sound Great! I got these headphones for Christmas and am still thoroughly enjoying them. They sound great and although they aren't noise-cancelling, they do a pretty decent job of blocking out background noise. I use them at work and at home and use them at night to fall asleep. They're really comfortable and have saved me more than once when I wanted to sleep and block out background noise. The battery is also really good. I can wear these for days without charging. I don't think I've ever run out of battery, but typically don't go more than 3-4 days without charging because I don't want to be left in a lurch. I highly recommend these headphones for comfort, sound and longevity.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great set of headphones! got these in the Samsung fully immersive promotion, the headphones are great, seem well constructed and sound awesome, the padding is nice and soft, and the Bluetooth connectivity is great. What sets these apart is the pass through option I have used it both to save battery and when I've killed the battery. All around awesome set of headphones. My favorite pair I own

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.

Is it possible that my right/left markers were put on the wrong sides? The "R" side has all the controls and the "L" side has the charging port. They also rotate wrong.

Asked by: gmoney007
As shown in the Quick Start Guide, the mic is on the right ear cup of the Y50BT where you will find the control buttons while the charging port is on the left. If you're having issues rotating them, please submit a case request at www.jbl.com/support-contact.html and the Customer Service team will be more than happy to further assist you.

When in use the LED flashes blue slowly and constantly. This is somewhat noticeable and distracting in dark environments, or when in front of a reflective computer or tablet screen. Is there anyway to disable this?

Asked by: Rich
Hi Thank you for your question. There is no way to disable the flashing LED, the best suggestion I can offer is to cower it with a sticker. if you have further question, please contact our help-desk.

Is it possible to connect the Y50BT to a laptop as a headset not just headphones? It works great as a headset with my phone but not with my Windows 10 laptop.

Asked by: rcnc
The Y50BT does not require any specific drivers. It utilizes the standard Bluetooth Stereo Audio drivers available in most laptops. There are two different Bluetooth protocols, one for Headset Audio used for talking on the telephone, and the other for high quality stereo audio listening. Being that the Y50BT is a headphone; your computer must connect to the Y50BT using the headphone protocol which is HSP and HFP Bluetooth Profiles. Your best bet is to go into your control panel and find the Bluetooth setup. This setup usually provides a setup wizard and will take you through the steps to install the drivers needed for Stereo Audio. If you do not have it, you may download these generic Bluetooth profiles which should normally be possible through your computer manufacturer's website or through your Operating System's Support Team.

My ear cups rotate the wrong way for resting on the neck, at least according to all the pictures I see. They only rotate inwards which makes the earcups point up with the branded part resting against my neck. Is there a way to adjust the rotation?

Asked by: KhanSW
The Y50BT swivel the right way for the pads to rest on user's shoulders when rotated. All controls are on the LEFT ear capsule, and the left/right indications are printed inside the ear pads audio passage. The charging port is on the right capsule. It is possible that you can remove and re-attach the pads. If are in need further assistance, please submit a case request at https://us.akg.com/support-contact.html and a member of our Customer Service team will be more than happy to assist you

One (1) active CONNECTION at a time... got that..., so no multi point... BUT... How many device PAIRINGs does this supports? Only 1 also, up to 8, other? Not references in any docs.

Asked by: AJAY
The Y50BT can connect to and remember up to 8 source devices before it pushes the oldest one out of the memory.

Is there any way to disable the flashing led?

Asked by: krs1977
Unfortunately, the flashing led can't be disabled. If the Y50BT is charging the LED light should turn constant amber. The red led blinking light will turn off once the Y50BT is fully charged.
