Product Actions
On-the-go sound with seamless phone connectivity

Besides the signature sound quality you would expect from AKG 8mm drivers, the Y20-U yields a few extra surprises of its own. Its integrated universal, one-button remote cable gives you leeway in controlling your music play-list with greater ease. Better yet, it lets you answer calls between listening to your favorite play-lists. Compatible with nearly any portable audio device, the AKG Y20-Uā€™s tilted ear-tips and soft, three-sized silicone sleeves (S, M, L) fit flexibly and comfortably into any ear.A solid value in terms of sound and durability, its lightweight polycarbonate design is complemented nicely by its smart color-schemes: black, grey, teal, or yellow.

Y20U is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 110.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound I brought this an year ago. They sound great. Well built and sits tight in my ear. The bass is not critically high but not even bad rather perfectly balanced. The ambient isolation is good. Finally this was an amazing product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great earbuds. in my top 3 so far. had these a few weeks. love the sound. great bass with out the muddiness most earbuds have. bright middle voice which a lot of earbuds dont have. nice clear highs that dont overpower the rest of the music. works very well with my eq app. bassheads will be pleased. just hope they are durable. i go through about 2 to 3 pairs a year because i use them a lot. mostly the the wires short at the plug.

Is it still comfortable when you lie on your side in the bed?

Asked by: johnny24
Hi, I wouldn't guarantee that it would be that comfortable if you wear it lying on your side since each person's ear sensitivity is different. You may try to purchase it from our website, and if you're not satisfied with the comfort, you may return it for refund. Thanks!

How well does this earphone block out external noises? As I always use them on business trips and the environment is mostly noisy which really irritates me.

Asked by: Alan
Hi, Thank you for your question. In-ear headphones if placed correctly in your ear, does block external noises but the best optimal way would be a noise cancellation headphone since they are made to filter out external sounds which are great in airplanes or noisy environment.

I am a former drummer. I want to "hear"the bass, not "feel" it. My ears have lost some of the highs. I suppose that if the bass is a little loud I could adjust the bass down a bit. It would help if some former drummers replied in the 60s age group.

I can't figure how to use the mic. When I recieve an incomming call I press the button to answer, but noone hears me. The second press terminates the call. Do I make smth wrong or the mic is plain broken? Tried to speak to every point of the cable.

How does the model Y20U differ from the Y20?

Asked by: pjliberman
The only difference between these models is that the Y20U features the one button microphone that is compatible with any iOS or Android device, which Y20 doesn't have. The single-button mic and remote handles play/pause, track skipping, voice activation, and taking calls.

Would the mic work with PS4? and will the sound only come through one ear, ive had other earphones that only allow volume through one ear when playing games. 

Asked by: Troy
Hi Troy, I'm fairly sure the headphones cannot be used as a Playstation Headset, but we cannot say this with 100% certainty. You are of course always welcome to order the headphones and give it a try. If they don't work, you can contact us and return them for a refund. If you require further information, please let us know on customer.support@harman.com
