Y500 Wireless is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 37.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable These are great. They are so comfortable for all day use. The battery life is great. It is something I can put on at 8 and know they are going to be going strong at 8 pm. The connectivity to my devices is great. I am able to move freely through my house without fear of the connection dropping. The sound is wonderful. I don't have to listen to my husband during the course of the day while he makes phone calls for his job or is on video conference calls. It is also nice to have the ambient noise feature in case I want to here other things going on in my house, such as my dogs or the doorbell. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great sound we really enjoyed the opportunity to test through the insiders the new AKG wireless headphones by HARMAN-Y500 . We really loved the sleek and no nonsense design. the sound quality was amazing and everyone in the family was impressed. At times there was a little fight going who is getting the headset next. I am a fan of cablefree life and I was a bit reserved when it came to the battery life of the headset. To my big surprise, there was a long battery life and hardly any charging necessary . All this points made me extremely happy and I am planning to buy one or two more headsets for Christmas [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Over the Ear Headphones I love these they stay on my head even when I lean over to pick something up. They are pretty comfortable they were a little tight at first but they either I got use to it or they have loosened up. I use them to talk on the phone when I am walking through the mall or house cleaning. When I'm not talking on the phone I listen to my audio books. The sound is great to me. I can also watch TV with them on and the sound is incredible.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for business and leisure! I thoroughly enjoy these headphones mainly because of the sleek appearance, features, and ease with storage. I travel a great deal for work and these headphones offer great sound and noise cancellation and at the same time, the ambient aware technology allows for me to connect to my surroundings especially in the airport where I spend a lot of time. I recently began using the multipoint connection to take phone calls which are clear. With my old headphones, the call connection was intermittent and lacked consistent audio quality. I will be purchasing another pair as a holiday gift. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Headset! Sound is very crisp! I used other brands and this one is definitely one of 3 headsets I recommend. This is my second pair of AKG's I recently recieved the N60 when I purchased my Samsung Note 9. However, Harman K did an amazing job with their Akg products! If you try them you will love them! The battery life lasted me for I know 4 hours. I use it to play music and sleep. So headphones are very comfy. The controls on headphones are easy to manage its just know which button does what. But it took me no time to learn with button is volume and what the others are. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Sound & Features for the $$ I was lucky enough to try these as part of the Insiders and I am very happy I did! What an amazing set of headphones. Never did I think I could enjoy a set of over the head headphones like these...I can wear them for days...literally they are so soft and the battery seems to last forever! Easy to adjust and once set it doesn't move. On top of the sound quality the noise canceling is GREAT! I love ability to answer a call, be heard clearly, and be able to hear no one all on the same headphones! Can't say enough great things, go get a pair now!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My first headphones I love my new headphones. They are stylish and the blue is a great color. They have good sound quality, the bass is awesome. I enjoy using them to listen to my music, audio books and YouTube videos. I like that they are rechargeable and the charge lasts a long time. I haven't had to charge them yet since I got them. They came with a nice bag which is handy for storing them and the two cords that come with it so I don't lose them and it protects the headphones from scratches. The controls seem pretty easy to use. I'm really enjoying my headphones and look forward to using them for a long time! I am reviewing these as part of the Insider program. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid Build and Sound The AKG Y500 headphones are pretty solid when it comes to sound quality and build. Having features like Ambient Aware, 2 Bluetooth connections, pause /resume when removing the headphones makes them stand out from the pack. The sound quality from the Bluetooth connection is better than good. Plug them up wired and the sound is even better. I like using them for work, as my environment is very noisy. I can tune everyone out with the press of a button. You will no longer hear the key presses and any chatter in the office. Please keep in mind the controls may take some getting used to. The volume controls are also used to switch tracks with a 5 second hold up or down. I would suggest looking at the manual to learn the phone functions on the headphones. Overall, I am really happy with the AKG Y500 headphones and would recommend if you need a fantastic pair of headphones. Much love to #TheInsidersUS for allowing me to review the AKG Y500 headphones as an #AKGInsider. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

The Y500 turns off after 30min of no activity, which is different to Bluetooth headsets that stay paired in standby mode for hours. What is the quickest way to turn the Y500 back on? Do I really have to slide the switch to off and on again each time?

Asked by: patthedog
Hello! Yes our AKG Y500 BT headphone has a power saving mode which turns the unit off automatically after 30 mins of no activity or playback. When you're ready to use it again, you'll have to turn it back on using the switch.
