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-U’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.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent detailed sound my second set - left first on plane sleeping in Biz class. Have tried various audiophile brands (not the gimmicky ones) and love this accurate sound best. I listen to jazz, classical , vocals.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice kick of bass Grabbed these to have a slightly better pair of in-ears when practicing. I play bass and cello, and love the deep bass I get from these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Headphones, Remote Is Meh 2nd pair of akg in-ear headphones and I'm very satisfied. Sound is great for the price and sturdier than other cheap headphones. Remote doesn't work with Spotify which is a bummer, but overall great purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound, comfortable, inexpensive Got these because of The Wirecutter. Yellow looks sharp. Sound is better than the previous The Wirecutter recommendation and fit is better too--I have very small ears and I can wear these for hours, unlike the other one. Sound isolation is good; can wear these on a plane without cranking the volume. Cord doesn't tangle. Very satisfied!!

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

How is the mic quality? Will I need to hold the cord close to my mouth?

Asked by: kmartin
People on the other line cannot hear me unless I hold the microphone directly in front of my mouth. If the microphone is dangling freely, the other party can barely hear me. The Y20U is unusuable for calls unless you're OK with holding the mic in front of your mouth.
