About the AKG Y50BT

Striking sound, portable design, and wireless convenience

Striking sound, portable design, and wireless convenience

The AKG Y50BT Bluetooth headphones sport the same look and compact on-ear design as AKG's Y50 headphones, their wired siblings. But they make listening on the move even more care-free. These lightweight, comfortable 'phones play music wirelessly from your Bluetooth-enabled device.

And you don't have to sacrifice sound quality — AKG knows all about how to make things sound good. In fact, many of the top recording studios use AKG gear. These Bluetooth headphones boast the same soundstage as the wired version. It's a sound that's been well-received by our customers. And my co-worker Dave Brown called, "clear and dynamic, with a little extra punch in the bass frequencies."

Simple on-ear controls and 20 hours of battery life

Right after sound quality, AKG's other priority was making these headphones easy to use on the go. The earcups swivel and fold for easy storage in the included case. And you get up to 20 hours of wireless music playback on a full charge. While listening, you can use the on-ear controls to pause and skip tracks, adjust the volume, and even answer calls through the built-in mic.

Wired listening when needed

If you're in a situation that doesn't call for wireless, you can use the included cable. Connect these headphones to any 3.5mm headphone jack on a smartphone, tablet, or other device and listen without using the battery.

Product Research


Overview: The AKG Y50BT on-ear Bluetooth wireless headphones let you carry the award-winning AKG signature sound with you with even more freedom. With Bluetooth wireless technology, you can enjoy your music for hours without wires. The headphones come with a charging cable, an audio cable (to use when the battery is exhausted), and a neoprene carrying pouch.

Closed Back Design: The Y50BT on-ear headphones have a closed-back design to reduce ambient noise, allowing you to hear what you want to hear. These lightweight headphones feature soft ear cushions for hours of continuous use.

Hybrid Glossy/Matte Finish: These stylish headphones feature a special finish on the earcups. With a glossy AKG logo and a matte background, the Y50BTs look good as well as sound good.

Bluetooth 3.0: The Y50BTs feature Bluetooth 3.0 technology, with A2DP v1.3, AVRCP v1.5, HFP v1.6, and HSP v1.2 profiles. With aptX and AAC codec support, you can count on high-quality sound when streaming audio.

Rechargeable Battery: The Y50BT's built-in 3.7V 1000mAh Lithium-Ion rechargeable battery gives you up to 20 hours of battery life on a full charge. The battery charges via the supplied Micro USB charging cable.

Drivers: The Y50BT's excellent sound originates with powerful 40mm drivers, which deliver precision sound with enhanced bass response.

3D Axis Folding Design: The headphones' unique 3D Axis folding mechanism allows you to fold them flat for storage or to pack in a suitcase or briefcase. The Y50BTs come with a padded neoprene storage pouch with a drawstring closure.

Cable: When the battery is exhausted, you can continue to use the Y50BTs by connecting to your music source with the supplied 51" detachable straight audio cable. The cable terminates into a narrow 3.5mm stereo mini-jack plug that can be used with most smartphone cases.

On-board Controls: The Y50BTs have on-board controls that are compatible with most smartphones. The 3-button controls allow you control the volume, to answer and hang up your phone calls, and control your music. A separate button is provided for turning the headphones on/off and pairing to your Bluetooth device. A built-in microphone on the right earcup is for phone calls and voice commands.

Customer Q&A

4 questions already asked

How much midrange do these have? I don't want just bass like Beats and Sony tend to have.
[ Ron  Oct 21, 2016 ]
1 answer
I've found them to be well balanced when paired with my iPhone. I use them to listen to streaming music while I'm out walking and they sound fine with that source quality. They dont exhibit the over accentuated bass of Beats and some other brands. I have not tried them with higher quality source material though, so if you are planning to use them for more critical listening it might be good to get the opinion of someone who has. I can add that despite being somewhat bulky they are pretty comfortable.
[ David Mulford  Oct 22, 2016 ]
Are the earpads removable/replaceable like the Audio Technica ATH-SR5BTBK?
[ Ron  Oct 21, 2016 ]
1 answer
The AKG Y50BT headphones do not include removable/interchangeable earpads; they come permanently attached. I hope that helps!
[ Larry  Oct 21, 2016 ]  Staff
How many hours do these AKG's last on a battery charge?
[ Ron  Oct 14, 2016 ]
5 answers
The advertised battery life is 10 hours I think. I've used them a total of 8 hours before charge. The only fault I have with these phones is there is no battery indicter so if you use them multiple sessions you have to keep count of to usage time. I usually charge them after three 2 to 3 hour sessions
[ Roynnell  Oct 20, 2016 ]
it was for my son --- but he said it lasts 'a long time' and usually critical of battery life
[ Ronald  Oct 18, 2016 ]
The brand specify 20 hrs, i didnt check it but i use it for a long periods in travels without need recharge it
[ JoseAntonio  Oct 18, 2016 ]
I bought these back in May or June 2016 and only charge them once in September. It's October now and the head phone battery life not even halfway as yet. Battery life and sound quality are perfect. I definitely recommend them. Hope I was helpful.
[ Kevern  Oct 17, 2016 ]
Hi, I haven't really measured this or checked, but they last a long time. I'm very pleased with battery life and love these headphones, they sound great.
[ Andrew  Oct 17, 2016 ]
Are these headphones compatible with a PS4 system?
[ Nikki  Aug 17, 2017 ]
3 answers
If the ps4 has Bluetooth, it should connect.
[ james  Aug 19, 2017 ]
I'm not sure if it will connect via Bluetooth. Maybe u can try the auxiliary cord and see if that works.
[ Kevern  Aug 19, 2017 ]
Hi Nikki - I own the AKG headphones but not a PS4 system; however, the headphones are compatible w/ BT v. 3, a standard wireless protocol and also a wired input using a 3.5 mm mini-stereo - 2.5 mm sub-mini adaptor to the phones. So, if the PS4 outputs in BT or wired, then the AKG product should work fine. Dave
