Satisfied customer, loving my new AKG's
21 May 2017
I replaced a piece of kit and of course there's no jack for headphones. I tried a pair, aimed at the sport user: they didn't fit very well (I palmed them off on the kids) and the sound was OK but not fantastic. As I own a set of wired AKG headphones, used with my phone, and I love these I decided to look for a bluetooth pair of AKG headphones to go with my tablet. I read a number of reviews, looking at a variety of brands and models but decided on the AKG Y50BT headhphones in silver.
So far I'm really impressed with these headphones - I'm not a huge audiophile but love the sound, the bass is deep and I don't feel I'm losing out on the higher notes either. They are not entirely noise cancelling but they do block out a lot of the office sounds around me (I sometimes wear them when I need to concentrate on a task and not be disturbed). I am getting to grips with the controls on the ear cup, occasionally I manage to switch them off rather than skip a track or adjust the volume, I expect this to change as I become more familiar with the headphones.
Size wise, I didn't think I had a particularly small head but even on the smallest setting they are not very tight, they're not loose enough to fall off.
Pairing them is easy - I've linked them to several devices. I've noticed that on a couple of devices you get an icon in the top menu bar that shows the headphones are connected and the battery level. All in all, I'd recommend these.
