AKG signature sound quality
As you'd expect from AKG, the Y50s boast class-leading sound quality. Larger than the Y40 models, the Y50s are ideal for use both on the move and at home (a 6.35mm adaptor plug is included). The larger cup size ensures a deep, dynamic bass that still has the typical AKG precision and refinement. The closed-back design keeps both outside noise blocked and prevents leakage - making them a more commuter friendly pair of headphones.

Built-in mic for smartphone use
Featuring a built-in microphone and one-button remote control, the Y50s are the perfect partner for most smartphones. Receive and drop phone calls without taking your phone out of your pocket or bag.

AKG quality and comfort
The unique 3D-axis mechanism doesn't just make these headphones easy to fold and carry, it also ensures a perfect fit. The soft, padded, headband and ear pieces simply add to the long term comfort. Although light and comfortable, the Y50s are durable, too. A detachable cable and folding design helps when transporting the headphones, while a solid build quality is a step or two up from many rivals. A soft travel pouch is also included.

The perfect headphones for music on the go and at home, the AKG Y50s are another winner from AKG.

I bought these a few mo months ago for the same price.

Outstanding headphones and a lot of reviews reported they were the best headphones under £100.
Dammit. If only I had a headphone socket
I've had these for years now. Great headphones and still going strong!
The Bluetooth version is £10 more from Mobilefun. C50BT and Y50BT are actually identical. mobilefun.co.uk/akg…BwE

Very good headphones.

Good spot. £2.19 delivery as well. For £12 far better off getting the BT version - best of both worlds.

Yes. Sure I've used them in the past.

I've used them too. I bought the headphones from Argos as they had good deals on them for ages but don't seem to stock them anymore, but I can vouch for the headphones being the same model and very good quality.
@mosschops thanks, one last question if you don't mind...how's the fit? They are sold as on-ear but look like they may go over? Googling shows people with hair in the way so you can't really tell

They're definitely on-ear. Just measured; outer diameter of earpad 70mm, inner aperture 25mm. HTH
Thanks for that parsley.

any other hole where Jack could go in?
Have the Bluetooth version, got it for around £60 from Argos. Easily worth it, sound quality is what would be expected from headphones even 3x the price even over BT.
Only problem I have had is needing to return twice during the 30 days as the earcups became very loose. I'm on the third set now and don't seem to have any more issues with these, though would be very careful and get a warranty for them if possible (I was sold 2 years for £5).
I have these. Nice quality product for £50. I'm listening to YT with mine right now.
Thanks for this, just picked up the Bluetooth version for £62 - can use wired or wireless so worth it!
Have these, great sound but I don't find them particularly comfortable on the ears. After about an hour I have to switch to something else. Also just outside warranty the padding across the top of mine split and the foam came out. So less comfortable now.
I have the BT ones and they do sound fantastic and the only small gripe is that the position of the on button and that when you put them in the pouch occasionally they turn themselves on.
As above a big problem with these is when they’re folded in the on off button often becomes activated and drains the charge, mine were ok while they lasted but broke after a year when the wire housing broke, wouldn’t buy again.

Agreed. Sound is excellent. On button could be in a better place. Minor gripe against excellent headphones.
I have the bluetooth verison, very good headphones, great sound and build quality, would recommend.
Love these headphones after the tightness on the ear is broken out.
Only negative is the cable which is a weak pos. Ive yet to find a replacement which isnt over 20
I also have the Bluetooth version. Same experience as others that the ear cups became broken and detached from the headband as they are only secured inside the earcup with a small plastic bracket holding them in place. I took mine apart to diagnose the issue and found both brackets cracked/snapped inside the housing. They were replaced no problem under warranty (Argos) as they were only 5 weeks old when they failed, so I took out an additional 2 year "no quibble" replacement warranty including accidental damage for £11.99 with the replacement set as I wasn't confident they'd last 2 years having seen the inside of the earcups for myself.....that was in November and they have been spot on since. Otherwise a great little set of headphones
The BT versions are a tenner extra. I'd get the BT versions over the wired ones, they're definitely worth it for the freedom. You're going to struggle to find a better pair of BT headphones for the price. As other's have said the clasp that holds the speakers in breaks easily but it's a pretty easy fix. I just replaced the small screw with a larger one and hot glued it into place.
