Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally amazing sounding bluetooth headphones! I had tried many pairs of bluetooth headphones prior to getting the Y50's and every time i listened to them it was such a compromise in sound quality just to have the bluetooth feature. When i tried the Y50's i was shocked that it was really bluetooth as all my other experiences were so poor. I am an audio engineer so i am very aware of what my music should sound like and the Y50's nailed the perfect tonal balance and audio quality. It seems like they are using the latest bluetooth specs and codecs so that what I'm hearing back is excellent with no artifacts. Battery life is great too. No downsides so far....... Only wish they came out a few years ago

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great headphones! I received these headphones when I pre-orded my S8+ ... I use them almost ever day! I use them while I sit at my desk at work, I use them while I workout, I use them while I do yard work and I use them while I eat green eggs and ham. Honestly though I love these headphones and never thought I would be an over the ear headphone guy but after using these I will not go back. The battery life is remarkable and feel like I am cheating the system because the battery last so long! On to the important thing... Sound.. The sound quality is excellent not top of the line studio quality but for headphones that you can basically use for anything and everything they have fabulous sound. Next set of headphones will most certainly be AKG.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Update from last 2 star review I dont know how to update my old review (The 2 star review) got help from my local dealer and he exchange the my defected cable for a new one. so, im writing a new one instead anyway this headphone is great in every aspect. -They didnt advertise it has noise isolation but i cant here what ppl are talking about when i put it on. -sound great and vocal , guitar (i can hear each individual string of guitar sound in some songs) and it also works well for asmr. -and the battery life is really really long I bought it for a month and i've only charged it 5 times There is also a small flaw in the design i wanna point out: -sometime when I fold the headphone.The edge touch each other and bluetooth button gets push and turn on the bluetooth accidentally.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent portability and sound Just got it and I'm already impressed. Sound and portability are top notch, though I wish I new how to increase the volume for the microphone. Bluetooth works like a charm with my iPhone and my Macbook. Now importantly for me, I can wear it for extended periods without getting ear fatigue. Well done! Got it on eBay really cheap so I won in all aspects. My only privileged hmm is that the manuals are kinda skimpy and as I said, the microphone volume is too low and I don't know how to increase it. Thank you none the less!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these I purchased these headphones based on the sound qaulity from the headphones which came with my phone, which are ear buds. I figured that the sound quality would be great as well, and they definetly are.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Charging Specification I am very satisfied with this overall. I'm curious about the charger specification. Is there any damage to the battery in the charger specification below? - DC9V 1.67A (or DC5V 2A)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AKG Y50BT review I'm a fussy britches and struggle to give top marks for anything unless it is truly deserved - truth be told i'd give these headphones a 4.5 if possible but they are certainly close to perfect! My only gripe is that when folded the ear cans can easily rub together which eventually will lead to marks/scratches, and the folded size isn't particularly compact. Otherwise, the sound quality is superb at the price point - neutral leaning towards warm, and very impressive for a bluetooth connection. Style is on point and comfort levels are high, I regularly wear them for 4-6 hours a day and experience minimal heat build-up. Connection to sources is easy and the battery life is pretty much class leading. My previous headphones of choice were AKG K451s which served me proudly for several years of high usage, and whilst more convenient for carrying around - I am now sold on the wireless feature of the 50BTs and have earned AKG several additional sales through recommendation! I seriously doubt you'll be disappointed in these fine headphones, particularly at this pricepoint.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from After reading several professional reviews stating that this is the best set of headphones in its class at this price point, I purchased this pair of headsets as a gift for my 27 yr. old nephew who is in computer networking and somewhat of a techie. He said that the headphones are great sounding and very comfortable.
