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

Great sound in a small form


I got these for commuting and using in the gym and they are great. The sound is lovely and even giving a nice range. Works well at the gym and stays on quite well for on ear headphones.

I had to return the first set because the Bluetooth connection kept dropping out. I got a no quibble replacement set which i am very happy with. The sound is great, they are comfortable, and they look the part. They also have a nice feature of pausing...
