AKG Y500 Wireless headphone review: Ultra-compact on-ear headphones for audiophiles

 

These on-ear wireless headphones sport an ultra-compact, folding form factor and good wireless features, but their wired performance is where they really shine.

Folds to an ultra-compact aize that's ideal for traveling ; Great sound for an on-ear headphone ; Light and comfortable for long listening sessions

Quirky play/pause automation ; Wireless performance is inferior to wired performance ; Ambient-aware's enable/disable notification sound is loud and annoying

AKG has another winner with the Y500 Wireless For the price, these cans are sure to be a sweet-sounding, no-frills, audiophile favorite. The folding, compact footprint makes it an ideal travel companion. The ambient-aware and play/pause automation are...

Great Headphones

 

Bought for a birthday present in August 2019 and the owner (who is writing this review) loves them. They are for use in the gym. They are very comfortable to wear and the sound is fantastic. Not cheap, but worth the money.

Very comfortable

 

Have only tried them a couple of times but intend to use them on upcoming long haul flights. That said so far so good. Good sound quality - easily connected to my phone. Also like the option to blank out "outside" noise. Great value

Great sound and value

 

I needed a pair of portable headphones for travelling and after a bit of research (and some great advice from the Watford store) settled on the Y500s. Great balanced sound, comfortable and do a decent job of blocking outside noise for on-ears. Great...

Great sound and nice feature

 

I had some AKG tuned headphone with my phone which were great, that made me buy these. Crystal clear and comfortably with a neat feature of turning the music off when you take them off and starting again when you put them on. Great build quality and...

Great sound quality at a great price

 

Always used an i-pod in the gym but now switching to these wireless earphones the difference is amazing.

Consumer review (richersounds.com)

Great sound and clever features

 

Only bought these a week ago but been really impressed. Sound is great (not hi-res when wireless but is supplied with a detachable cable which won't use battery and will give hi-res). Really comfortable and lightweight. The only minor negative (would...

Consumer review (richersounds.com)

Quality and comfort at a mid-range price

 

Purchased wireless AKG Y500s to replace my wired ones (YC60s) when I upgraded iPhone to one without an earphone jack. Robust and comfortable design and good quality sound. Noise cancellation is unobtrusive and the ability to temporarily turn it off to...
