Studio-quality sound in the smallest in-ear headphone available – featuring extreme comfortability with a featherweight design in four funky colors. AKG Y23 headphones are so small, you won’t believe your ears when it comes to their ability to deliver AKG-quality sound definition. For those who find typical in-ear headphones overly bulky comes an ultra-small, highly-connective solution that still delivers on studio-quality sound. You won’t know you’re wearing them given their ultra-light weight, miniature design and the choice of four available sizes of ear sleeve for maximum fit. Incorporating a one-button universal remote control with microphone, the Y23 offer you instant connectivity with almost all smartphones. Designed to appeal to those who find typical headphones too big and too bulky, the secret of the Y23’s success is found in their high-caliber sound. You’ll take them everywhere you go – largely because you won’t even remember you’re wearing them. And that’s before you realize you really can’t do without them. Perfect for those living a fast-moving lifestyle which demands staying connected to the real world.

Y23U is rated 2.8 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great value for money and sound. Very comfortable to wear even for hours. Great sound cancellation (very useful on a plane or underground). Small problem. Don't buy if you're too tall. The cable is about 5cm short for me, which makes it difficult to have my phone in my pocket and walk with them. Overall would definitely recommend for this price range.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from They are pretty good! I bought these because I dropped my Samsung AKG earbuds in water. The quality is not of that of the SAMSUNG AKG but still pretty good

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great when it works I bought the white earbuds in March 2017 and less than a year later in November 2017 the connector just fell off. Contacted customer support and I was issued a new set of black earbuds about 2 months later in January 2018. It is now May 2018 and the connection is spotty, I can no longer make calls using this and I can only hear from the left earbud. I do not use this to work out and it does not go through a lot. I coil it nicely after use and do not bend any wires. This would be great if the product worked as it should. The size of the earbuds are perfect for my smaller ears.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tiny size and good sound suppression I had a pair of these that finally died after a lot of use (headphones don't last forever). I tried looking for a cheaper pair that had the same tiny size and as good sound suppression but after buying several pair, I found that I should have just spent my money on the Y23 instead. No other in ear phones fit so well or block so much noise. I wear mine on plane trips and it stops the loud PA's and engine noise from bothering me. The sound is awesome too. The only downside is that to remove them from your ear, you have to pull them out by the cord, which I think eventually shorts out one side like my old pair. So pull gently. That being said, my old pair lasted for around 3 years Don't go cheap, get the Y23

Rated 3 out of 5 by from comfortable Purchased these on sale for about 20 bucks. They are comfortable right out of the box and for extended periods of time. Quality is decent I expected more but I got them at a discounted price. I've had them for about a week and a half so I can't say much about durability 3/5. I would say I got what I payed for.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Sound is great but the jack poses a problem. I bought these a little over a month ago. I love the sound but unfortunately they will not stay connected with my Otterbox on my phone. Since phone use is the only thing I use earphones with, I don't use them. Wasted money on my part but if that's not an issue, great earphones.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from These reviews must be made up These products are made up because as of 2018/10/10 they have not been released yet... I let AKG know about this a while back and they have done nothing. I guess they are waiting for social media to get hold of it before they act.

whats the difference between AKG Y23 and Y23U ?

Asked by: todd
The only difference between these models is that the Y23U features the one button microphone that is compatible with any iOS or Android device, which Y23 doesn't have. The single-button microphone and remote handles play/pause, track skipping, voice activation, and taking calls.

will these control volume on an iPhone 5?

Asked by: LKWS
The Y23U does not offer volume control because it features a one button universal inline microphone. The one button microphone allows you to answer/hang up calls, pause/play and skip tacks.
