Y50 is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 23.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent quality Was looking for a pair of good AKG headphones to prevent over-using the K551 and stop taking the K551's so often on commute, etc ; after some thought went for the Y50. It wasn't a bad choice at all. (sure, sound spacial distribution is more refined on the K551) After few weeks of usage, I believe I take them off the ears a bit more often then I would with the K551, but then these are over the ear design and such is expected.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Almost perfect I found about those when looking for a replacement to my previous aging "monitor" headphones from a certain popular taiwanese manufacturer. I saw the design, the price, and instantly wanted to try those in the shop I was in. I instantly fell in love with them, the sound was marvellous. For its price I've been insanely impressed of what it delivers since it's entirely passive. So I got them, and I loved them. I kept using them for music creation tasks and even use its microphone for calls on my computer since it's an excellent mike. They're quite comfortable unacordingly to most reviews I've read on the web. Sadly after arround eight months of use I broke its cable and no sound comes out of my pair of headphones. It started by randomly pausing music on my phone, then a morning the sound only came out of the right side, and then nothing anymore. I'm still sad this happened, because those are the best headphones I ever had. I'm definitely going to grab another cable, or completely replace my unit for a shiny new pair of Y50. Only complaint I have to do is that the paint gets scratched quickly on the hoop and ears, and scales after two or three months on the hoop.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Dålig sladd, bra ljud Bra ljud fram tills dess att sladden slutade fungera efter 11 månader. Verkar inte gå att köpa endast ny sladd. :(

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable. Effective. Durable. Affordable! I bought them during Black Friday 2015 when I think they were 10% off. The flagship store in NYC has friendly staff and the headphones themselves are great. I had old AKG DJ headphones and they broke. These were a great replacement. Perfect for playing live sets, I like that AKG includes the adapter and I like the design where the size adjustment is because my old AKGs snapped because of the old design.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from För pengarna, no brainer! Har haft de liggande sedan jag köpte en dyrare lur. På skoj petade jag in dem i mitt dyrare system. Tappade hakan, mycket dynamiska och punch. Torra och väldigt exakta. Röster kommer fram och det lätt att följa text och fraseringar. Bra dynamik som startar och stannar med okey precision. Basen blir inte bumlig utan är snabb och fast. Går inte längst ner men för pengarna får man massor av nyanserad bas. Bra luft i högre registret som rullar av snyggt. Symbaler på Hi-res filer låter autentiskt. Soundstage är inte jättestort men ordnar instrument och bra timbre kring instrumenten, bra transparens och rymd. En fantastisk lur som spelar musik som som få mycket dyrare lurar klarar av.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Usel kabel som inte ens finns att köpa ny Halvdant ljud och en kabel som inte ens hänger kvar ordentligt. Började glappa inom ett halvår och är oanvändbar inom året... Vore väl ok om sladden gick att få tag i men det är ju bara att glömma!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost perfect. Got the blue pair about a year ago, and i love them. my only gripe is that the padding on the headband came off after only a few months of regular every day use, a little disappointing, but none the less, i am excited to try the y50bt.
