After extended use, I found the headphones comfortable although my ears did get a little warm. The controls on the right ear cup are straightforward and I share other reviewers gripe about the on/off switch being too easy to press when the headphones are in their folded position.
Obviously headphone sound quality is a subjective thing, so if you are considering these, it is worth having a listen first, I believe you can currently do this at your local richer sounds.
Good luck with your headphone search.
So, I shortlisted Sennheiser, Beats, Philips, and Audio Technica, but reviews kept steering me to AKG.
At the budget end, What Hifi best buy headphones under £50 were also looking good, the Panasonic RPHTX7. While I prefer the WW2 radio operator style of the Panasonic, the black AKG Y50 looked like it belonged to an assassin. And every material on this is soft to touch (black version). Even the cable is soft, let alone the ear pads which are sublime; the matt finish on all surfaces makes them look like stealth headphones.
So, I borrowed my daughter's Panasonic RPHTX7 to do a sound comparison (£40 headphones versus £80), and swapped between those and my new Y50s while listening to Mussorgsky 'Night on Bare Mountain' on vinyl. The Panasonic sounded great, loud, and boomy, very clear, difficult to beat, and sometimes available at £22, amazing value.
But then the AKG showed me something quite different, very comfortable, the sound was less harsh, less muddled, and very very good. Neutral, inoffensive, tight bass, well controlled throughout. It almost steers you through individual notes with ease, it tames recordings. So this is what £80-160 headphones should sound like, I thought. Smooth, and comfy.
Are you looking for boomy harsh sound, then AKG will disappoint you, but reproducing music and vocals, AKG hits the sweet spot.Read more ›
The main characteristic is sound quality. It's better, for my taste, than any Bose pair i've tried, including the QC25/35, close to some sennheiser momentum that more than double the price of this set. Good bass, without enhancing it artificially. Middle and high tones are crips and clear. If you are a bass lover you might prefer other models, but if your consumer many music genders like me it's very well balanced for that.
The battery lasted 6 days of good use (>5h/day). That surpassed my expectations and also the 20h that AKG says on paper, perhaps because I don't usually listen over 30/40% of volume.
I'm quite picky with my ears and I can endure long sessions of working only feeling some small discomfort after 3/4 hours non stop. It cannot match the confort of an over-ear pair, but they are extremely confortable for an on-ear model. Perhaps a bit slippy if you shake your head strongly, not well suited for jogging with them, but if they were more tight they would be uncomfortable for regular use, so I'm happy with that decision.
Noise isolation is good, but not off the chats.
One detail that might annoy me a bit is that in fold positions the ON button can be pressed by accidente very easily, turning them on while in your bag.
The box is not a fancy premium looking one, and the carrier bag is just correct. All the money you pay goes to the headphones, but the result is outstanding for a pair that barely surpasses the £100 barrier.
