Y55 is rated 2.5 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good sound quality after you get used to these After about two years of use I'm happy with my headphones even though I had difficulties when I started using these. I had big troubles when after 10-15 minutes of use my ears started burning and I had pain in both sides of my head. The headphones felt too tight and I couldn't use them for a longer period of time. I used my headphones every day and after about 6 months I could wear them 30-60 minutes continuously. The pain has now gone away and I enjoy listening music with these headphones. Also the plastic parts of the headphones have endured small damage and small parts have fallen off. It's just a minor problem which doesn't affect to the listening experience. It's difficult to recommend these if someone has problems with too tight headphones, but otherwise the sound quality is great for this price.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good sound, but has issues. I got this about one month ago and overall the sound is very good and they are very enjoyable to use, for about half an hour. After that point the headphones start to hurt my outer ears, not only for me but also for those whom I allowed a listen. I really liked them, but the pain is difficult to deal with. Mixed feelings overall.

should the cable be connected to the right side of the headphone as mine are?seems a bit odd and the cable keeps getting in the way

Asked by: rodg
Hi Thank you for the question. The wire connection on the AKG y55 is on the left side of the headphone. So I cannot understand that you want it on the right side. If you need to talk further about this issue - please feel welcome to contact our help-desk.
