Build Quality, Sound, etc.

Johnny 10/19/2020

got these off of amazon, would've bought them here on the samsung website if they were cheaper but they are really good in terms of feel and sound. it was uncomfortable at first but then again i haven't worn headphones for years. 10/10 battery. came in the 17th of sept. have used them for 3 days at 60 percent life and haven't died yet. they really should be anc because i don't hear anything with them on while doing dishes, watching a movie etc. only thing i don't like is they aren't compatible with the akg app.

Junk!

bwpstl 9/1/2019

We were offered these since they "ran out" of the ear buds that were SUPPOSED to come with our S10 purchases. Oh, and we STILL had to pay $20 just to get these. That being said, this review is JUST for the headphones. Connecting them to ANY device is very difficult and frustrating. After connection was established, the quality of sound was awful and white noise infuriating. Then, every so often, they just disconnect from the device you're listening to. The battery life is even worse, barely get a few hours before it starts dinging that the battery level is low, and that after it had been fully charged. I wasn't sure whether I would like the ear buds originally offered and since they shockingly ran out, we'll never know because I WILL NEVER buy another samsung product again, not a phone, headphones, watch, etc.  The S10 has ALSO been a HUGE disappointment, so, samsung, consider this customer a FORMER customer who tells EVERYONE I know how you FAILED to meet your advertisement for the ear buds but MORE importantly, how low quality ANY of your products are. For what it's worth, the S5 & S7 were GREAT phones with nice improvements for the time, but after all this, will NOT, EVER buy another samsung product. Good luck to those that do, I wish you all the luck in the world.

Knight785 8/31/2019

I got this with my note 10, and I absolutely love the headphones! Great quality of audio, and great battery life. Only thing I don't like is that I can't customize audio profiles and it doesn't have USB type c for charging port. Other than that great headphones, compare to some of the other wireless headphones in similar price range.

ElmoTLK 8/20/2019

I got these for my birthday a few days ago because my y50s' broke. I was surprised by the audio quality and quickly fell in love with them. But my ears hurt "ALOT" after short usages and I don't know why, they feel really comfortable. Then skipping songs is a bit annoying, you have to hold up the volume switch for 3 seconds even though it says that it is 2 seconds, which also is too long. I'm very disappointed by that, otherwise, great headphones with outstanding audio quality (better than the sennheiser hd 4.40)

Great Premium Sound at an Affordable Price

Bob W 7/11/2019

I bought my AKG 500 a couple of weeks ago. They deliver great sound for an affordable price. The sound is well-balanced and the headset is a great companion on walking trails or almost anywhere. I used to have a competitor's brand but after 10 years, I'm glad I chose AKG!

I am loving these headphones. The sound is so clear and you can feel the bass. Great for listening to music. They are comfortable to wear, even with glasses on. I love that they fold up and have a nice storage bag to transport them in. The battery life is long lasting. I havent found any complaints yet. Well worth the cost and I would recommend to friends.

Good Wireless Headphones

lovetoreview 12/11/2018

I will straight get to the facts. Sound Quality: Sound is great on these headphones. However I would have liked if it had more bass. These headphones are really good noise cancelling headphones. So this are really good companion in flight. What I Like: 1. Sound quality 2. Looks 3. Battery Life 4. Noise Cancellation What I don't like: 1. Design since its tight on ears and gets uncomfortable Accessories it comes with: I like the fact that it comes with a nice pouch and 3.5mm cable if you don't want to use it wireless. I will recommend these over the head headphones for anyone. Design: The design of these headphones are look wise very good. Very catchy. I bought the one in Aqua color. It really looks cool. The headphones are on the heavier side. Due to which they fall off if you run with them. These headphones are not comfortable and will start irritating your ears after 20 min of continuous usage, specially if you are in gym. Wireless Connectivity/ Pairing process: The pairing process is very straight forward and works flawless and is very quick. Hold and the power button sliding upwards for 3. seconds and the blue light starts flashing which is an indicator that the headphones are ready to pair. Battery Life: I haven't tested this extensively but I was able to watch 3 hrs worth content on my iPad and I lost only 20% battery. It seems pretty good.

great sound

catkessy18 12/11/2018

we really enjoyed the opportunity to test through the insiders the new AKG wireless headphones by HARMAN-Y500 . We really loved the sleek and no nonsense design. the sound quality was amazing and everyone in the family was impressed. At times there was a little fight going who is getting the headset next. I am a fan of cablefree life and I was a bit reserved when it came to the battery life of the headset. To my big surprise, there was a long battery life and hardly any charging necessary . All this points made me extremely happy and I am planning to buy one or two more headsets for Christmas

Excellent Sound and Portability

DeadRegime 12/11/2018

First off I'd just like to mention I'm not an audiophile, can't really speak to the "soundstage" of the headphones, and don't have a set of reference tunes that I play to put a pair to the test. That said, I listen to a wide variety of music from film scores, to heavy metal, to rap and the Y500s did a great job of playing them all whether it was wired or Bluetooth. Not too tinny, not overly bassy-just a good, versatile pair of headphones. They were as good if not better than some headphones twice their price. The battery life is phenomenal on these and I got very close to the 33 hours advertised and you really can squeeze out at least another hour with just a quick 5 minutes charge. The Bluetooth performed well and the ability to pair to multiple devices made swapping back and forth from my laptop to cellphone really easy (it'll also auto switch to your phone if you get a phone call while paired to another device). The Ambient Aware feature is more useful than I thought. I started using the Y500s in the office, which can get loud with a bunch of conversations going on at once. Using the built-in microphone you can subtly hear the background noise going on in the office while listening to your music, but if someone starts talking near you the music volume drops and the mic volume raises so you can actually hold a normal conversation without ever taking the headphones off. The Y500s are also pretty subtly styled so I wasn't wearing neon yellow or ridiculously large cans in a corporate office environment. They Y500s fold up very compact and seems to be very sturdy – they haven't gotten scuffed from rubbing against themselves or rattling around loose in my laptop bag. My only real complaint is the included bag for the headphones has a relatively small opening and doesn't have a separate pocket or anything for the charging cable or the headphone cables when going wired. It makes getting the headphones in and out of the bag annoying, the cables come out everything I take them out, and I was initially worried about the headphone jack scratching up the headphones. All in all I'm really pleased with the Y500s and they've replaced my much more expensive everyday ones for when I travel or am working in the office or a coffee shop.

Comfortable

Gingerc318 12/11/2018

These are great. They are so comfortable for all day use. The battery life is great. It is something I can put on at 8 and know they are going to be going strong at 8 pm. The connectivity to my devices is great. I am able to move freely through my house without fear of the connection dropping. The sound is wonderful. I don't have to listen to my husband during the course of the day while he makes phone calls for his job or is on video conference calls. It is also nice to have the ambient noise feature in case I want to here other things going on in my house, such as my dogs or the doorbell.

Absolutely love this headphones

madamrose 12/7/2018

I have been using AKG Y500 Bluetooth headphones for few weeks as a part of Insider program, and so far I absolutely love it. First of all, it's sound quality is way more clear, rich, and deep than the headsets I've been using. (I am not audiophile btw.) I guess the noise cancelling feature helps a lot on that as it eliminates most of the background noise, so I can listen my favorite music without any distraction. Also I like the design of the Y500. It's not a luxury product by any mean, but but it looks pretty and like the pink color. (Not sure if this is for guys with BIG head though.) AKG Y500 also is very comfortable to wear; I did not wear it for a extended period of time, but no problem wearing for 30 minutes to an hour listening music or watching movie or TV shows. One feature I like it a lot is the 3.5mm cable that comes with the device. It's not just a cable, but it has built-in microphone and volume locker; so I can use it for phone calls. Also when battery is exhausted, I can still use the headphones using this cable connect to the phone or laptop; noise cancelling cannot be turned on in this case. Overall, AKG Y500 Bluetooth headphone is great product, and I recommend anyone who is looking for a noise cancelling headphones.

My first headphones

kerry219 12/6/2018

I love my new headphones. They are stylish and the blue is a great color. They have good sound quality, the bass is awesome. I enjoy using them to listen to my music, audio books and YouTube videos. I like that they are rechargeable and the charge lasts a long time. I haven't had to charge them yet since I got them. They came with a nice bag which is handy for storing them and the two cords that come with it so I don't lose them and it protects the headphones from scratches. The controls seem pretty easy to use. I'm really enjoying my headphones and look forward to using them for a long time! I am reviewing these as part of the Insider program.

Jenadocris 12/6/2018

First of all the design is really nice, modern and stylish, fits easily and perfectly to the head of anyone. The most wonderful thing about these headphones is of course that they are Wireless Bluetooth but the best best feature the duration of the battery, I workout almost every day and it's amazing not to have to worry about recharge them. I enjoy my AKG Y500 I didn't rate 5 only because they are They are a little heavy on the ear but in general good value.

Great Headset!

RaquelLozano 12/6/2018

Sound is very crisp! I used other brands and this one is definitely one of 3 headsets I recommend. This is my second pair of AKG's I recently recieved the N60 when I purchased my Samsung Note 9. However, Harman K did an amazing job with their Akg products! If you try them you will love them! The battery life lasted me for I know 4 hours. I use it to play music and sleep. So headphones are very comfy. The controls on headphones are easy to manage its just know which button does what. But it took me no time to learn with button is volume and what the others are.

Great new headphones

glenn113 12/6/2018

I got these headphones a few weeks back. They seem to be made well. No issues with durability so far. The #1 best thing about the headphones is the Bluetooth. I do not see much mentions of this aspect in reviews but these connected immediately to my phone. I have had other headphones in the past that have been a hassle to connect. It's very annoying to struggle to "find" the items on Bluetooth over and over again. Many times having to delete and repair the connection with other headphones. The sound is also very clear. I mostly listen to podcasts so superior sound isn't my main concern, but these sound great to me. The only negatives are the fit. It can slide off and I have pinched my finger adjusting the size.

Good Bang For The Buck

jason2084 12/6/2018

Hello, I am writing this review as part of the Insiders program. The design of the headset is quite nice, they fit very well and no expense was spared on the quality. Compared to other head sets I have owned in the past years these are the best. To me comfort was one of the major factors, I needed a product that I could leave on for a few hours at a time and the Y500 was like wearing pillows on my head. The battery life of the Y500 was also impressive, I used the head set for around 8 to 10 hours a day for my work and not once did the charge go below 60%, very impressive. The sound quality isn't anything to sneeze at, from listening to audio books and some good rock music these did not disappoint. I find it hard to explain in words how things sound but its almost as good as being there. Personally, I am finding it hard to find anything negative about the headset. Great job!

Great Sound and some very cool features

Trudellcorey 12/6/2018

I am really liking some of the features of these headphones that I haven't experienced with other brands, like the pause function when it's sensed that you've removed the headphones and put them down. When you pick them back up and put them back on your head, the program starts up again. That's a pretty awesome feature! However, I feel like these headphones are always sliding off the top of my head. I'm not sure how to fix this, except to get the set that goes over the ear instead of on the ear. Pairing the headphones was super simple and didn't take any time at all. Also, it seems like there is a sound dampener built in to the headphones. When I first started using them with my tablet, I noticed the volume wasn't going very high. I changed a couple settings and then had a much louder volume in my ears. Overall, I like the features of these headphones, and I appreciate how portable they are as well. The bag that comes with them is a good size with a nicely padded interior, and a cinch that keeps everything safe. I think you'll enjoy these headphones if you give them a chance! I reviewed the item as part of the Insiders program.

Best Headphones Ever

nadineloff 12/6/2018

I got to test these headphone through The Insiders program. From the opening of the box I could tell they were very quality headphones. They came pre-charged so they were ready to use right out of the box. This is especially nice if you are giving them as a present as they get to use them right away. The headphones have amazing all encompassing sound. They block out noises and have very nice bass. The feel of them on your ears is very pleasing. There are no pressure points that hurt the ears. the range is amazing had no trouble using them around the house. they also are very durable dropped them a couple times without incident. I like the design but the rocker style button for skipping song is a bit flimsy and feels like it will break due to the design of the button. All the other features work flawlessly and switching devices is seamless. The only feature I did not like was the sound pausing when not on ear. Sometimes this would cause the sound to pause while on my head. I also found that if I tilted my head forward they had a hard time staying on my head. Might have been just my large head not to sure. Overall best headphone sound and functionality I have ever encountered.

Perfect for business and leisure!

PROPHETE 12/4/2018

I thoroughly enjoy these headphones mainly because of the sleek appearance, features, and ease with storage. I travel a great deal for work and these headphones offer great sound and noise cancellation and at the same time, the ambient aware technology allows for me to connect to my surroundings especially in the airport where I spend a lot of time. I recently began using the multipoint connection to take phone calls which are clear. With my old headphones, the call connection was intermittent and lacked consistent audio quality. I will be purchasing another pair as a holiday gift.

AKG Y500

tinawgrrtt 12/4/2018

Hello Samsung, First, I would like to say "Thank You" for allowing me the opportunity to review this product as an Insider (AKG wireless headphones by HARMAN-Y500 series). Upon unpacking the headphones I was very impressed. Sleeking in their design, not too big or bulky, and very stylish. I loved the way that collapses into themselves to fit inside the carrying pouch that came with them. They could almost fit in the palm of my hand. Now I could get into all the technical aspect of the headphones, but I don't think that's what you want to know from a consumer's point of view. So, I'll explain them a different way. As far as comfort, after I fully charged them, I give them a 7 out of 10. The main reason was the cushion on the headphones. Because they are of a flat design meaning they just lay on the outside of your ear. They tend to get warm the longer you wear them. If they covered the ear, that might eliminate this issue. As far as the battery life of the headphones they simply blew my mind. I charged them over a week ago and they're still going. The standby feature of the headphones is excellent. When you take them from your ear, they immediately go to standby mode, and when you place them back on your ear they resume. This feature is excellent. The ambient noise mode feature is also wonderful, which allows you to hear what's going on around you without losing any sound quality. The volume and play/stop buttons are a very steam line. And pairing the unit was very easy. I, personally, would have preferred that the maximum volume of the headphones be louder for the price but its ok. But the sound quality of the headphones is superb, everything sounds like its right next to you. I would definitely take these on a long flight or trip because of the battery life. They just keep on playing for hours. Thank you again, Happy Consumer

Good sound but tight on the ears

Bella2013 12/1/2018

I love headphones and have tons of different kinds, designs, and brands but right now these are my go to. It could be because they're new and pretty and pink but the sound is good and they're convenient and easy to use. The AKG Y500 headphones I received from The Insiders go over your head with a cushioned, adjustable headphone band and memory foam ear cups. The headband feels more air filled. The ear cushions are soft but can feel somewhat tight on your ears over time but not enough for me to not use them. They also charge fast and last long. The sound is crisp and the bass isn't overbearing. They volume goes loud enough and doesn't throw off the sound which is nice too. What I found the coolest was that the headphones pause the music when they're removed which is super handy. The controls have changed location on these and the on button now sports a blue LED light which is helpful. I did find it confusing when you hold the volume button too long it changes the tracks but it's just something new to get used too. The bluetooth pairs easily and the headphones can be paired to multiple devices and switches over effortlessly and when paired with your phone the call sounds clear as can be although I'm not down for automatic answers and will have to switch that :) These headphones fold up nicely for convenience and also have a AUX plug although I love wireless. There are a few things I'd like to see like a change in weight and how they weigh down on your ears and sometimes I feel they can fall off easily and not sit right but overall I'm happy with them and worry my son will be claiming them soon but they may not be for everyone!

great headset

catkessy1 11/27/2018

we really enjoyed the opportunity to test through the insiders the new AKG wireless headphones by HARMAN-Y500 . We really loved the sleek and no nonsense design. the sound quality was amazing and everyone in the family was impressed. At times there was a little fight going who is getting the headset next. I am a fan of cablefree life and I was a bit reserved when it came to the battery life of the headset. To my big surprise, there was a long battery life and hardly any charging necessary . All this points made me extremely happy and I am planning to buy one or two more headsets for Christmas

Amazing Sound & Features for the $$

dlubsindy 11/26/2018

I was lucky enough to try these as part of the Insiders and I am very happy I did! What an amazing set of headphones. Never did I think I could enjoy a set of over the head headphones like these...I can wear them for days...literally they are so soft and the battery seems to last forever! Easy to adjust and once set it doesn't move. On top of the sound quality the noise canceling is GREAT! I love ability to answer a call, be heard clearly, and be able to hear no one all on the same headphones! Can't say enough great things, go get a pair now!

Great sound with some awesome new features!

Ctrudell 11/21/2018

I am really liking some of the features of these headphones that I haven't experienced with other brands, like the pause function when it's sensed that you've removed the headphones and put them down. When you pick them back up and put them back on your head, the program starts up again. That's a pretty awesome feature! However, I feel like these headphones are always sliding off the top of my head. I'm not sure how to fix this, except to get the set that goes over the ear instead of on the ear. Pairing the headphones was super simple and didn't take any time at all. Also, it seems like there is a sound dampener built in to the headphones. When I first started using them with my tablet, I noticed the volume wasn't going very high. I changed a couple settings and then had a much louder volume in my ears. Overall, I like the features of these headphones, and I appreciate how portable they are as well. The bag that comes with them is a good size with a nicely padded interior, and a cinch that keeps everything safe. I think you'll enjoy these headphones if you give them a chance! I reviewed the item as part of the Insiders program.

Amazing headphones

Yellowlablover 11/18/2018

First, I am extremely happy that these headphones come in a variety of colors. They are lightweight, comfortable and produce a decent sound. The connection via Bluetooth was seamless . The charging is super fast! The sound is great, I wish it would go louder but it does nicely. The buttons are small and ok. If you done have the ambient noise button on it sounds like you are under water. The instructions are way to small. The charging cable is not interchangeable. I wish there was an app to go along with these headphones. The headphones fold up nice and small and come with a pouch so they travel nicely. Again, I wish there was more options with sound. I would totally recommend these to anyone! I am reviewing these headphones as an insiders and received them at a discount.

Best wireless headphone so far

somu_btech 11/16/2018

I own several headphones and earplugs. But this is my first wireless headphones. I've always stayed away from the wireless ones for two reasons, clarity and running out of battery. I received the Y500 thru the Insiders program. Let me emphasize, I am extremely impressed with the clarity of these headphones. The Bluetooth connection is very strong. And coming to the battery life, I am using these everyday for 2 hours, and I had to change it only once in 2 weeks. That is really amazing. I still own some very expensive headphone, but once I started to use the Y500, I have not looked back. I asked my wife to try it out if it feels comfortable, and she loved it. And I have to buy one more, so this item is in our shopping list. Overall, very happy with it. Surely recommend for a friend.

Solid set of headphones

lethaltricks 11/16/2018

These are a great pair of headphones, they're lightweight and relatively portable. The device has some neat features such as Ambient Aware mode which lets you hear your surroundings without disrupting your music. The pause/play function when you remove the headphones is a nice touch too. I appreciate that you can use these as either wired or wireless and that it even comes with the cable to do so. Battery life is pretty phenomenal, I have yet to have them die on me after several hour+ uses. They are pretty comfortable to wear for extended periods, however, I did experience some ear fatigue after about an hour of use. As far as sound goes, this is where I was really let down. These are my first over the ear style headphones (usually use in ear phones) so I'm not sure what I was expecting but these seemed to come up short. Max volume seemed a bit weak and left me wanting more. Sound quality and connection are very good but bass and volume were lacking. I have not experienced any loss of signal or cut-outs in my daily use, so that's definitely a plus. The only other thing I would consider a negative is that I dont think these have any sort of water/sweat resistance to them, so be cautious when wearing to the gym or exercising (unfortunately that's where I use these most). #AKGInsiders #Insiderreview #samsung #AKG #TheInsidersUS

The king of clarity

Strike 1nc 11/14/2018

Thanks to #AKGInsiders #TheInsidersUS I have a great opportunity to try out the AKG Y500s. Not only have I tested them with various music genres and movies. I have put them through test in situations and battery life. The Y500s definitely have a nice crisp clarity when it comes to vocals. The bass is not very deep at all problem something I personally would prefer, but that's not what these headphones are targeted for. Sound isolation seems to work pretty good. I can block out the daily surrounding noises, but they are not airplane worthy. They are decent enough to use on a plane but they will not drown out the noise 100%. Even though the ear cups are a little small for my ears my wife did find them a perfect fit. The ear cups are a tiny bit to heavy for the head band. The weight is is not balance, but I have a feeling this was done to avoid them feeling to heavy on your head overall. The button layout is a bit tight for my fingers. AKG could have used "real estate" on top of the ear cup to move some of the buttons. I didn't dare risk the band twist/break test, but the quality has proven to be durable. During a test when I was using them while cleaning bent over and went down a bit quick to pick something off the ground the head set tilted forward and fell off. The perk of not having to much pressure on your head creating that "pinching" effect can also be a negative if you plan on being active while using. Normally these are not the style of heads for something like that so I wouldn't strike that as a negative. The battery life was amazing I watched 3 movies and binged about 4-5 tv shows along with some tunes to and from one my most recent flight all on a single charge. I am very impressed with battery life this is exactly what I needed. I always have a problem with Bluetooth headsets not keeping up on battery on my all day flights. Keep note you can only pair 2 devices to these AKG headsets so if you wanted to move from one device to a new one its going to take a little bit of BT juggling, but it can be done. Finally range is awesome, I know most times you will have your device near bye, but sometimes you don't think about that and you walk away and its nice to have your tunes keep playing as you walk around and back to your device. So far my favorite use is for music at the office or at night watching movies before I fall asleep in them, because the cups are soft they extremely comfortable.

Awesome headphone

froddoh1 11/3/2018

I am giving the AKG Y500 4 out 5 because I feel that it doesn't fully cover the ears. Moreover when in use for a period of time, I could feel that my ears started to hurt a little. But overall it is a decent headphone with Very basic with left and right indications like all headphones. I barely read the instructions/ manual ,still have not, nevertheless I was able to easily figure out how to use. Power button function as bluetooth sometimes I had hard time connecting from my phone to laptop to music player. I feel though there was a lag between disconnecting from one and connecting to the other. I had to turn off and on the headphone multiple times in order for devices to wirelessly connect. What I really like is the hours of use and the quick charge. I can get 30 hours, I believe 35 hours was max per manufacturer. Clarity and crispness of sound is just amazing. I used it on Sunday to watch football instead of my sound system and I could hear every little sound bite i cannot hear on regular basis which was hugely noticeable even my wife could tell the difference. I recommend the AKG Y500 for kids and adults that are not into big sound or gaming. Oh the pouch, what is that? It is too small to fit the headphone and material look and feel very basic, compared to others. It does not have a very good protection against drop and may not last for a long period of time. Also the reason I give it a 4* Reviewed by insider selected.

Solid Build and Sound

ejtsecond 10/31/2018

The AKG Y500 headphones are pretty solid when it comes to sound quality and build. Having features like Ambient Aware, 2 Bluetooth connections, pause /resume when removing the headphones makes them stand out from the pack. The sound quality from the Bluetooth connection is better than good. Plug them up wired and the sound is even better. I like using them for work, as my environment is very noisy. I can tune everyone out with the press of a button. You will no longer hear the key presses and any chatter in the office. Please keep in mind the controls may take some getting used to. The volume controls are also used to switch tracks with a 5 second hold up or down. I would suggest looking at the manual to learn the phone functions on the headphones. Overall, I am really happy with the AKG Y500 headphones and would recommend if you need a fantastic pair of headphones. Much love to #TheInsidersUS for allowing me to review the AKG Y500 headphones as an #AKGInsider.

Magnificent Design and Sound Quality!

Nevada22 10/28/2018

I have had these headphones for almost a week now. They have a sleek modernized design and the color is rich and vibrant. I purchased the pink set. The controls are easy to navigate and use. Pairing with my Samsung S8+ was a breeze. They are extremely comfortable and well made. The ear pads are memory foam and are flexible and they allow for movement so that they do not put too much pressure on the ears. The sound is magnificent and very clear. They have a feature when you remove them in the middle of a song that they will pause your music. I have not had any charging issues and the charge last throughout the day for me. I normally have a long commute. - I travel 3 hrs to work each way. I find these to be better than the Beats headphones that I also have and only used for a short time due to them being uncomfortable on my ears. These headphones are worth the investment, especially if you spend a lot of time commuting and listening to music. They have been well worth it for me. #AKGinsiders
