Tired of constantly recharging your wireless headphones? The Y500 Wireless On-Ear Headphones from AKG features a 900mAh rechargeable battery that provides up to 33 hours of playback time while streaming audio via Bluetooth. If you happen to need a quick boost of playback time when you're out of juice, just charge them for 5 minutes and the Y500 headphones will have enough power for up to 1 hour of use.

While you can pair the Y500 headphones to any Bluetooth-compatible mobile device, if you pair them with your smartphone you can utilize the built-in microphone to take advantage of hands-free calling. To make the Y500 on-ear headphones easier to use when on the go, AKG has included a host of convenient features, such as Ambient Aware, playback automation, and multipoint support.

Connect to 2 Devices with Multipoint
With multipoint technology, these headphones can be paired and used with two Bluetooth-compatible devices simultaneously. For example, pair them with your personal and work phone, and flip back and forth between the two as needed.
Hear the World with Ambient Aware
Ambient Aware technology is designed to give you the ability to let surrounding audio in while listening to music. With the press of a button, this technology gives you the ability to hear announcements or have a quick conversation without regularly having to take your headphones on and off.
Play & Pause Automation
Thanks to play and pause automation, you never have to miss a note with the Y500 headphones. This feature automatically pauses your audio when you take them off, and resumes playing when you put them back over your ears.
Additional Features
Soft-touch headband with memory foam earcups
Wireless Bluetooth 4.2 and AAC codec support
Volume and sound controls on the earcups

    AKG Y500 reviews

    Y500 Wireless On-Ear Headphones (Blue) is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 3.
    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.]

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magnificent Design and Sound Quality! I have had these headphones for almost a week now. They have a sleek modernized design and the color is rich and vibrant. I purchased the pink set. The controls are easy to navigate and use. Pairing with my Samsung S8+ was a breeze. They are extremely comfortable and well made. The ear pads are memory foam and are flexible and they allow for movement so that they do not put too much pressure on the ears. The sound is magnificent and very clear. They have a feature when you remove them in the middle of a song that they will pause your music. I have not had any charging issues and the charge last throughout the day for me. I normally have a long commute. - I travel 3 hrs to work each way. I find these to be better than the Beats headphones that I also have and only used for a short time due to them being uncomfortable on my ears. These headphones are worth the investment, especially if you spend a lot of time commuting and listening to music. They have been well worth it for me. #AKGinsiders [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
