The AKG Y50 headphones bring some serious thunder for just $100 without compromising high frequency presence and clarity.

Powerful audio performance with intense, deep bass response and well-defined, crisp high-mids and highs. Inline remote control and microphone on a detachable cable

Large logo on earcups not for everyone. Not for purists seeking flat response-style headphones

If you're looking for deep bass in your headphones, you have no shortage of options in the current market, so it's worth doing a little research before you immediately settle on a pair from Beats. There are pairs, like the AKG Y50, that deliver some...

AKG Y50 on-ear headphones review: Budget brilliance


Every manufacturer seems to be after a slice of the headphones market and AKG's approach with the Y50 on-ears is very savvy indeed.

Exceptional build quality and audio output on a budget, stacks of bass, super comfortable

Over-prominent logo design, would like more mid-level pop

The level of build and audio quality the AKG Y50 deliver for their £80 asking price is astounding. Comprising metal, leather and glossy plastic in just the right amounts, it's the kind of construction many big-name competitors would charge twice as...

AKG Y50 Headphone review


Pro-grade headphones with a pro-sumer price

Comfortable ; Bright style ; Good price

Not portable ; Lacking in headband padding ; Some sound leakage

Beats Solo rivals at less than half the price

Bold look ; Fun sound ; Good isolation

Boosted bass could be subtler

Striking portable headphones for those who like their headphones with a bit of extra bass bounce.

AKG Y50 headphones


When you think of fashion headphones, you're likely to think straight away to Dr Dre's mammoth Beats empire - but a pair of those cans come at a hefty price. The Austrian audio boffins at AKG have been hard at work on their latest headphones, and the...

The bright yellow, taxi-cab styling might not be for everyone, but the top-notch sound quality definitely should be. Handily, you can grab the Y-50 headphones in black, red or teal if yellow's not your cup of tea, but no matter which colour you choose,...
