The AKG Y50s hardly put a foot unsuitable with their spectacular sound. They’re balanced and insightful, uncover a great deal of element and convey dynamics effortlessly. A neat design mechanism permits permits them to break down and fold flat for simple storage. The leather-based earpads sit firmly on the ears and do a very good job of blocking our exterior noise. If you need a pair of on-ear headphones which are moveable, trendy and reasonably priced, then look no additional than these AKGs.

It solely takes a passing look to see these are AKG’s handiwork.

The ‘AKG’ lettering boldly brandished throughout the Y50s’ vibrant crimson, yellow, teal or (much less vibrant) black ear cups is actually a speaking level of those on-ears – a top-end mannequin in AKG’s new life-style headphone vary, the Y-Sequence.

Their daring look is maybe somewhat out of character for the Austrian firm, nevertheless it’s a transparent step in the direction of refreshing its complete headphone assortment (which till now has largely consisted of the well-known Okay Sequence) and attracting a youthful market.
