Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent and not too expensive Great sound, easy to use. Good price at Costco. But a bit heavy. I love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really good sound, quick bluetooth sync I have to say, for the price point the AKG Y50BT are a really good set of cans. Pairs up quickly on bluetooth, sound is really good, not much leakage and the ear sponges are a comfortable fit. Battery lasts for a long time. I use them for my weekly flights. Highly recommend them, well worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Update from last 2 star review I dont know how to update my old review (The 2 star review) got help from my local dealer and he exchange the my defected cable for a new one. so, im writing a new one instead anyway this headphone is great in every aspect. -They didnt advertise it has noise isolation but i cant here what ppl are talking about when i put it on. -sound great and vocal , guitar (i can hear each individual string of guitar sound in some songs) and it also works well for asmr. -and the battery life is really really long I bought it for a month and i've only charged it 5 times There is also a small flaw in the design i wanna point out: -sometime when I fold the headphone.The edge touch each other and bluetooth button gets push and turn on the bluetooth accidentally.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AKG Y50BT review I'm a fussy britches and struggle to give top marks for anything unless it is truly deserved - truth be told i'd give these headphones a 4.5 if possible but they are certainly close to perfect! My only gripe is that when folded the ear cans can easily rub together which eventually will lead to marks/scratches, and the folded size isn't particularly compact. Otherwise, the sound quality is superb at the price point - neutral leaning towards warm, and very impressive for a bluetooth connection. Style is on point and comfort levels are high, I regularly wear them for 4-6 hours a day and experience minimal heat build-up. Connection to sources is easy and the battery life is pretty much class leading. My previous headphones of choice were AKG K451s which served me proudly for several years of high usage, and whilst more convenient for carrying around - I am now sold on the wireless feature of the 50BTs and have earned AKG several additional sales through recommendation! I seriously doubt you'll be disappointed in these fine headphones, particularly at this pricepoint.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great headphones! I received these headphones when I pre-orded my S8+ ... I use them almost ever day! I use them while I sit at my desk at work, I use them while I workout, I use them while I do yard work and I use them while I eat green eggs and ham. Honestly though I love these headphones and never thought I would be an over the ear headphone guy but after using these I will not go back. The battery life is remarkable and feel like I am cheating the system because the battery last so long! On to the important thing... Sound.. The sound quality is excellent not top of the line studio quality but for headphones that you can basically use for anything and everything they have fabulous sound. Next set of headphones will most certainly be AKG.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent portability and sound Just got it and I'm already impressed. Sound and portability are top notch, though I wish I new how to increase the volume for the microphone. Bluetooth works like a charm with my iPhone and my Macbook. Now importantly for me, I can wear it for extended periods without getting ear fatigue. Well done! Got it on eBay really cheap so I won in all aspects. My only privileged hmm is that the manuals are kinda skimpy and as I said, the microphone volume is too low and I don't know how to increase it. Thank you none the less!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Marvelous ! I want to let everyone know that I was not able to turn on the bluetooth following instructions. However I called support and the call was answered IMMEDIATLY ! How unusual that is. They instructed me to hold the power botton (the one between the aux jack and LED) down 3 to 5 seconds. I tried that a number of times with no reaction of the LED. I then touched the button with as brief a push as possible and immediatly the blue LED started to flash and I was able to quickly pair with my phone . The other factor that others who have probably had similar issues is the charging port and light on the left ear cup. When the USB cable is connected to a charger a RED LED comes on to indicate charging is taking place. Once the battery is charged the LED will go out. If you remove and reinstall the charger the LED will come on again, but maybe for less than 1 minute. Again this is an indication that the battery is charged and not an indication that the charger doesn't work. Frankly all that is really required is plainly state the above information on the instructions in appropriate translations for the dozen languages included. A good product with good support but absolute rubbish for included information. Other than this issue the audio quality is very clear, bass is reasonable but clean. Physically the build is far better than most over ear phones that I have previously experienced. Very pleased, don't let my comments above disuade you. I really made this post to help others avoid frustration of turning them on.

Just bought these and connected to pc. But they would not connect to phone (sony experia Z5). Also. When listening to youtube through them, the sound was awful and tinny until I used the lead supplied. Then the sound was awesome. What should I do?

Will these work with a 3.5mm to lightning connector for cabled use with an Iphone 7 as I presume the cable supplied is 3.5mm to 3.5mm.

Asked by: Gordy1965
Hi Gordy Thank you for the question. The cable supplied with the headphone has a 2.5 mm jack connection to the headphone and a 3.5 mm jack (4 poled) connection to the source. It will work fine with your 3.5 mm. to lightning connector, which comes with iPhone 7.

Why do my volume/sound controls not work when connected via the cable provided? They work fine when it BT (albeit with a bit of delay) but not at all when connected by the wire.

No Bluetooth IPad Pro compatibility for the Y50? I just got this and I could connect the Bluetooth perfectly with my Iphone 7, but not my IPad Pro. Are these headphones just for cellphones?
