AKG Y50

 

Beats Solo rivals at less than half the price

Bold look ; Fun sound ; Good isolation

Boosted bass could be subtler

Striking portable headphones for those who like their headphones with a bit of extra bass bounce.

Product of the Year, Awards 2014. Excelling in sound and style, the Y50s are a promising start for AKG’s latest range

AKG Y50 on-ear headphones review: Budget brilliance

 

Every manufacturer seems to be after a slice of the headphones market and AKG's approach with the Y50 on-ears is very savvy indeed. The level of build and audio quality the AKG Y50 deliver for their £80 asking price is astounding. Comprising metal,...

Exceptional build quality and audio output on a budget, stacks of bass, super comfortable

Over-prominent logo design, would like more mid-level pop

The level of build and audio quality the AKG Y50 deliver for their £80 asking price is astounding. Comprising metal, leather and glossy plastic in just the right amounts, it's the kind of construction many big-name competitors would charge twice as...

Lenovo Y50 review

 

Lenovo's latest gaming laptop: lightweight in more ways than one

Excellent, unique design ; Fantastic value ; Pleasant speakers

Dreadful screen ; Inconsistent game performance ; Limited configurations ; Short battery life

The Lenovo Y50 is a splendidly designed gaming laptop, but limited battery life and computing horsepower will leave hardcore gamers wanting more.

AKG Y50 Headphone review

 

Pro-grade headphones with a pro-sumer price

Comfortable ; Bright style ; Good price

Not portable ; Lacking in headband padding ; Some sound leakage

The AKG Y50's boast a surprisingly clean sound for a moderate price. They come in a variety of color options to fit anyone's lifestyle, and provide a taste of the professional audio sound without having to pay the full studio price. If you can afford...

AKG Y50 review

  (Rating Hidden)

These AKG Y50 headphones are on an-ear model, with built-in controls and microphone. They're foldable so can be packed flatly into a bag. Are these headphones you'll want to take on the road, or should you leave them on the shelf? Find out in our full...

AKG Y50 headphones

 

When you think of fashion headphones, you're likely to think straight away to Dr Dre's mammoth Beats empire - but a pair of those cans come at a hefty price. The Austrian audio boffins at AKG have been hard at work on their latest headphones, and the...

The bright yellow, taxi-cab styling might not be for everyone, but the top-notch sound quality definitely should be. Handily, you can grab the Y-50 headphones in black, red or teal if yellow's not your cup of tea, but no matter which colour you choose,...

AKG Y50

 

The AKG Y50 headphones bring some serious thunder for just $100 without compromising high frequency presence and clarity.

Powerful audio performance with intense, deep bass response and well-defined, crisp high-mids and highs. Inline remote control and microphone on a detachable cable.

Large logo on earcups not for everyone. Not for purists seeking flat response-style headphones.

If you like the idea of big bass balanced out with crisp highs, but perhaps the design of the Y50 isn't for you, the Skullcandy Crusher allows you to adjust bass levels to your preferences, and the Griffin WoodTones Over-the-Ear Headphones offer a...

A great set of headphones

 

I toyed with the idea of going for more pricey high end phones but I'm so glad I didn't. I can only speak as a jazz fan. The sound they produce is deep and warm an surrounding. I have no understanding of the technology of such things so can't go into...

Solid

 

The first thing that strikes you when you remove the AKG Y50's from their box is how solid they feel..how well 'screwed together' -always a good sign. These will be the third pair of AKG's I've owned over a number of years and though I looked around at...
