AKG Y55 Portable Foldable Noise Isolating Performance On-Ear Headphones, Like being sat between quality speakers

Critiques mixed up with wired model. . nine % of the assessments below are for wired version. Y50 bt ware released about two months in the past and by the time i ordered them they experienced only a single assessment. As for the y50bt they seem soo considerably much better than jbl y50bt. Construct high-quality blows all the competiton away, microphone operates effectively also.

Truly relaxed on ear headphones. Acoustically, form & generous and great, kool & excellent. Akg stands for neither of these, but these speakers actually are superb. After spending a lot of months looking at signing up for the hordes of mini me dr dre’s in their beats headphones despite looking at significantly relating to evaluations about their high-quality, i saw these. Soon after looking through the massive praise from what hifi (they gained a ideal merchandise award in 2015) i ordered a pair. I have to say the audio high quality is abundant and pretty fantastic high quality with non of the related excitement you can get with bluetooth connection. I tried putting my head in the microwave and turning it on although listening and this failed to influence the top quality 1 iota, nevertheless my nose swelled and has only just returned to its typical dimensions. Severely, excellent gear, very well manufactured and a satisfaction to use and pay attention to. Just one detail i would say is that the cat doesn’t uncover them pretty as astonishingly snug as i do, but that is almost certainly due to the reality his ears are on major of his head.

Very good headphones with quick bluetooth modified. Ive received 3 pairs of akg headphones bein these k450 which the y50 sound a audio much better by means of oit the range and k702’s which are remarkable possibly very best heasphones less than £400 but huge and open up again so only actually excellent indoors and nobody sat subsequent to you. The y50s are a lot more multipurpose and ive modified mine into bluetooth with a disnix tiny bluetooth receiver with aptx so u get cd high-quality an a 2. five female small cable which i velco to side. Will not seem as great as y50bt but saves you £70 i can live with that. I cant give five stars since other headphones ive got audio much better.

Formerly made use of creative aurvana live’s. Previously employed innovative aurvana live’s. Preferred on ears for portability. These examine extremely effectively but do not function very well with apple products. They get rid of a ton of their depth. A lot more bassy than my creative’s although keeping apparent highs nevertheless there is a fall in assortment.

Not as very good as i was expecting. I purchased these headphones on the strength of a what hi-fi assessment where they received the headphone of the 12 months award at a overview value of £80. First the design, perfectly i won’t be able to fault it. The headphones seem pretty properly manufactured and glance excellent. Becoming a tad on the previous side i went for black as i assume i would have seemed preposterous with say brilliant yellow headphone. The most vital issue is finally the audio the headphone makes and i have to say i was left somewhat unhappy. I would describe the sound as a little nasally and not as very good as i was expecting. I believe for the reason that these were the headphones of the calendar year i was expecting far better but the evaluate would have taken into account the price tag level the headphones had been providing at. Following a brief even though i start off to get employed to the nasal sound so the headphones results in being much more satisfying but that very first effect does not go absent each and every time i use them. I paid £49 for these headphones and i would say they produce a £49 seem.

AKG Y55 Portable Foldable Noise Isolating Performance On-Ear Headphones – Red : I treated myself to some black akg y50’s for on the turbo trainer at home. The noise of the fan, the bike and the family can be distracting so i wanted something that isolates a fair bit of sound and these do a great job. The sound quality is brilliant, i have some audio technica ath-ax3is that i had been using and they sounded alright but just a bit lacking compared to my gaming headsets sound, for gaming i use some astro a40’s and the sound from them is the best i have tried personally. I sometimes just plug the astros into my phone to listen to an album as they sound so good to me. I compared the akg’s with the astros and the sound from the akg’s is almost as good but wearing over the ear astro gaming headsets whilst sweating away on a turbo trainer isn’t a good plan, plus the astros don’t isolate as much background noise as the are open back type. I think the open back probably helps deliver slightly more punchy bass but i think the akg’s are perfect for what i wanted, they sound great, well made, look smart and fitted into my budget.

    Very solid construction, yet not too heavy when on the head. I find them comfortable even after wearing them for over an hour. Sound quality is excellent and the bluetooth works perfectly. I was reluctant to spend this much on a pair of headphones but now feel i have invested wisely.

      Fantastic headphones well worth a try. I ordered these after having ear surgery as i felt the ear buds were a bit uncomfortable so wanted a good replacement. These are great very comfortable to wear for long periods and the sound quality is great in my book. I read several reviews before purchasing and felt it helped my choice of which headphones to purchase. I’m so please with these not only do they drown out noise whilst traveling they also keep my ears nice and toasty in the cold.

    Bought as a rent to replace my husbands broken seenheiser headphones. Was going to buy another pair of seenheiser as very happy with those but these caught my eye.Stylish, sleek and feel very good quality for the price. I’m thinking of getting some for me but in yellow.

      Great sound and fit, bluetooth works brilliantly. But major design fault – when they are folded up the two ear pieces rub against each other and turn on. The result is that you can be interrupted during a phone call by the headphones in your bag spontaneously connecting to your phone. Very basic and inexcusable design issue.

        I’ve been using in-ear headphones of so long that perhaps any on-ear phones might surprise me but these are unquestionably excellent. The rich quality of sound and the appearance of fine detail is excellent. With my in-ears adding a dac to my iphone didn’t make a lot of difference. With these the difference is striking. I’ve only just started using them but they are already a revelation.

    Superb sound but rather heavy and uncomfortable. . In terms of audio quality these are the best headphones i’ve ever owned and look built to last. The negatives are that they are rather heavy and sit very tight on my ears, making them quite painful after a certain length of time. Also, unless i’ve missed something, you can’t skip tracks using controls on the headset which was a feature of my previous (and much cheaper) bluetooth headphones. However, given the superb sound quality i decided to keep them and hope they loosen up in time.

      Excellent quality as ever from akg and for a reasonable price. Only one thing i would change and that would be a better travel case.

They deliver excellent sound quality (including bass frequencies) with the freedom of a wireless connection. Pairing with my ‘phone and tv was a doddle. Noise cancelling is very effective. The only niggle is that when the headphones are folded for storage the on/off button presses against the other side, which can turn the headphones back on again. I would definitely recommend them.

      Great product, and while audiophiles may want the addition of a headphone amplifier, we find them perfect as they are – great sound and comfortable. Remember, these products are only as good as the condition of your hearing.

    Best headphones i have ever owned. I was looking for some headphones to use with a music production system. These are brilliant – great bass, clear tones, very comfortable. They also feel very solid – very nice quality. The only issue i had was the detachable cable in to the headphones kept coming loose, which was very annoying. However, this just proved to be idiocy on my behalf and a firm push followed be a reassuring “click” had the cable securely in place.

    Sound: ok/good, but i feel underwhelmedbuild quality: very goodlook: goodcomfort: painful to wear for more than half an hour; on-ear isn’t the most comfortable, but these hurt the top of my head more than my ears; the ear padding is good but there isn’t enough headband paddingfor the reduced price they’re a good on-ear option. Just don’t expect to wear them for 6 hours at a time. I should have bought over-ear instead.

    Great sound, very clear and detailed. Unfortunately the headband creates a very uncomfortable pressure spot right on the top of my head, so i can’t wear them for more than 30 minutes. A real shame, i might try cutting the padding off the headband.

    Very clear and punching sounds. Very clear and punching sounds, bluetooth connective is good and stable. Directly connecting to your audio device by audio jack is also good. I tested this on a wide range of my music from 80s to now and from rock to club music all good. As a other reviewer said why pay more. . When the clarity of sounds are this good. Very happy with this product and so glad i done some research on this.

    Ok sound quality(eventually), but connector problems. A already have a pair of akg 550’s which i think are superb, but i wanted a decent set of headphones for travelling with since the 550’s are a little chunky to lug around. After much deliberation between these, igrados, akg k451, i elected for these simply because (a) they look funkier, (b) they have removable cord and (c) akg’s sound reputation. However, while they certainly meet the portability requirement, they miss out on quality of both build and sound. My main gripe about the build quality is the fact the connection to the headphone unit is very sensitive and will drop out if given the slightest tug. Yes, it needs to come out easily in case you catch it, but this seems too sensitive. Also the button which is supposed to control an android phone doesn’t work on mine (htc desire 510 running kitkat). Also, wearing these for more than about 3 albums started to irritate my ears. Now the build quality i could easily forgive if the sound was of a quality which i thought akg could deliver. The rendition of voice and notes is quite good, but the sound stage is awful. In most albums, it sounds like the entire band is standing in a 10 ft circle right in front of you. Also, the base initially was non existent but now after about 10 hours, the tonal balance is improving. Do i feel ripped off – hmm maybe; but i don’t think i would have been happy with any of the other choices compared to the k550swould i recommend them – no; i think a similar quality of music is achieved using headphones around the £20 range. I used to have a pair of panasonics which were very nearly as good.
