  • 1Description

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.

    AKG Y500 reviews

    Y500 Wireless On-Ear Headphones (Black) is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 12.
    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 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 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.]

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best wireless headphone so far I own several headphones and earplugs. But this is my first wireless headphones. I've always stayed away from the wireless ones for two reasons, clarity and running out of battery. I received the Y500 thru the Insiders program. Let me emphasize, I am extremely impressed with the clarity of these headphones. The Bluetooth connection is very strong. And coming to the battery life, I am using these everyday for 2 hours, and I had to change it only once in 2 weeks. That is really amazing. I still own some very expensive headphone, but once I started to use the Y500, I have not looked back. I asked my wife to try it out if it feels comfortable, and she loved it. And I have to buy one more, so this item is in our shopping list. Overall, very happy with it. Surely recommend for a friend.   [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing headphones First, I am extremely happy that these headphones come in a variety of colors. They are lightweight, comfortable and produce a decent sound. The connection via Bluetooth was seamless . The charging is super fast! The sound is great, I wish it would go louder but it does nicely. The buttons are small and ok. If you done have the ambient noise button on it sounds like you are under water. The instructions are way to small. The charging cable is not interchangeable. I wish there was an app to go along with these headphones. The headphones fold up nice and small and come with a pouch so they travel nicely. Again, I wish there was more options with sound. I would totally recommend these to anyone! I am reviewing these headphones as an insiders and received them at a discount. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome headphone I am giving the AKG Y500 4 out 5 because I feel that it doesn't fully cover the ears. Moreover when in use for a period of time, I could feel that my ears started to hurt a little. But overall it is a decent headphone with Very basic with left and right indications like all headphones. I barely read the instructions/ manual ,still have not, nevertheless I was able to easily figure out how to use. Power button function as bluetooth sometimes I had hard time connecting from my phone to laptop to music player. I feel though there was a lag between disconnecting from one and connecting to the other. I had to turn off and on the headphone multiple times in order for devices to wirelessly connect. What I really like is the hours of use and the quick charge. I can get 30 hours, I believe 35 hours was max per manufacturer. Clarity and crispness of sound is just amazing. I used it on Sunday to watch football instead of my sound system and I could hear every little sound bite i cannot hear on regular basis which was hugely noticeable even my wife could tell the difference. I recommend the AKG Y500 for kids and adults that are not into big sound or gaming. Oh the pouch, what is that? It is too small to fit the headphone and material look and feel very basic, compared to others. It does not have a very good protection against drop and may not last for a long period of time. Also the reason I give it a 4* Reviewed by insider selected.
