The smallest in-ear headphones with universal remote and microphone

Product Actions
Hidden sound gem

Studio-quality sound in the smallest in-ear headphone available – featuring extreme comfortability with a featherweight design in four funky colors. AKG Y23 headphones are so small, you won’t believe your ears when it comes to their ability to deliver AKG-quality sound definition. For those who find typical in-ear headphones overly bulky comes an ultra-small, highly-connective solution that still delivers on studio-quality sound. You won’t know you’re wearing them given their ultra-light weight, miniature design and the choice of four available sizes of ear sleeve for maximum fit. Incorporating a one-button universal remote control with microphone, the Y23 offer you instant connectivity with almost all smartphones. Designed to appeal to those who find typical headphones too big and too bulky, the secret of the Y23’s success is found in their high-caliber sound. You’ll take them everywhere you go – largely because you won’t even remember you’re wearing them. And that’s before you realize you really can’t do without them. Perfect for those living a fast-moving lifestyle which demands staying connected to the real world.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from They are pretty good! I bought these because I dropped my Samsung AKG earbuds in water. The quality is not of that of the SAMSUNG AKG but still pretty good

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great value for money and sound. Very comfortable to wear even for hours. Great sound cancellation (very useful on a plane or underground). Small problem. Don't buy if you're too tall. The cable is about 5cm short for me, which makes it difficult to have my phone in my pocket and walk with them. Overall would definitely recommend for this price range.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great when it works I bought the white earbuds in March 2017 and less than a year later in November 2017 the connector just fell off. Contacted customer support and I was issued a new set of black earbuds about 2 months later in January 2018. It is now May 2018 and the connection is spotty, I can no longer make calls using this and I can only hear from the left earbud. I do not use this to work out and it does not go through a lot. I coil it nicely after use and do not bend any wires. This would be great if the product worked as it should. The size of the earbuds are perfect for my smaller ears.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from 2nd pair broke again 2 pairs broke currently in the process of getting them sent back. The wire is way too short. I would go with another make.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from These reviews must be made up These products are made up because as of 2018/10/10 they have not been released yet... I let AKG know about this a while back and they have done nothing. I guess they are waiting for social media to get hold of it before they act.

Does this earphones have a mic, volume up or down and pause/play buttons? Please needed an answer as soon as quickly possible.. Thank you

Asked by: Jar3D11
Yes the AKG Y23U earphones only has a one-button universal remote/microphone compatible with most Smartphones. These button allow you to answer and end calls, or play and pause music, without taking your headphones off. But it doesn't have the button for the volume control.
