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 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 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.

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 Heel fijne koptelefoon De Y50BT gebruik ik dagelijks minstens 4-5 uur aan een stuk om muziek te beluisteren tijdens het werken en de batterij houdt het op deze manier iets meer dan 6 dagen uit. Net iets meer dan 1 (werk-)week dus. Ik vind het een heel fijne koptelefoon; hij is mooi afgewerkt, voelt degelijk aan en geeft rijke klanken dankzij het brede frequentie spectrum. Zowel de lage als de hoge tonen zijn mooi in balans en niet overdreven afgesteld; geen té zware bassen waarvan je oren nog een tijdje nazinderen, maar eerder warme en zuivere klanken. Ook de signaalontvangst via Bluetooth 3 valt erg goed mee: ik kan vrij rondlopen op heel het kantoor en het geluid in perfecte kwaliteit ontvangen zonder haperingen. De oorschelpen zitten lekker zacht, niet te strak rond de oren. Meerdere uren aan een stuk luisteren vormt dus geen enkel probleem, tenzij je rap last hebt van warme oren. Omgevingsgeluiden worden vrij goed gedempt - en dat zonder noice cancellation. Kortom: de ideale draadloze koptelefoon voor mij. Mooi design, goede kwaliteit, geen gedoe - hij werkt gewoon perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You won't regret this purchase. Would buy again and again. Exceptional sound and battery life. Deep, accurate base. Very detailed throughout the range. They don't get hot on my ears like my over-ear Sennheisers. Comfortable, but a little heavy if you're on the move. Like if I stand up and they're not centered, they'll slide off my head. Sound does transfer when taking steps too, may be the seal to my ear giving. Instant pairing is nice but occasionally it doesn't pick up and I have to go into my phone settings. Sometimes it picks up when they're in my work bag and I have to turn Bluetooth to severe connection.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable & Sound Great! I got these headphones for Christmas and am still thoroughly enjoying them. They sound great and although they aren't noise-cancelling, they do a pretty decent job of blocking out background noise. I use them at work and at home and use them at night to fall asleep. They're really comfortable and have saved me more than once when I wanted to sleep and block out background noise. The battery is also really good. I can wear these for days without charging. I don't think I've ever run out of battery, but typically don't go more than 3-4 days without charging because I don't want to be left in a lurch. I highly recommend these headphones for comfort, sound and longevity.

Hi is it brand new or used 

Asked by: Doctaz110
Hi Thank you for your question. I can't see directly if it is a recertified product or a new one, which you have looked at. If it is recertified the it is a returned product which have the same warranty as a new one. Then it is a returned product which has been checked and works just as well as a new one. it may have minor scratches. but a reduced price. if you have other questions, please fell welcome to contact customer support.
