You can pick up the much newer (and improved) Y500 on ebay for £50. Loads of people are selling them as they came free with Tablets etc.
'Pursue your passions wirelessly and easily'

Wish it was that simple
I picked these up about two year back from argos for £59.99, easily the best day to day heavy usage wireless headphones I've used. Battery lasts ages, sound is brilliant and strong build quality.

Me included, came with a S10e. Thought id keep them, but the "on ear" feel, felt awfull. Although these have a small hole in the middle (that may feel different), unlike the Y500's.

I got one of these free with a laptop..

They are fantastic 100 times better than id expected.

Great build quality, great sound, long battery
These get 5-star reviews all round but they’ve been a lot less than this at times. Also the same as the C50BT, which I got from CeX for £22.

The Y500 doesn’t get good reviews, mostly for sound quality, whereas the Y50/C50 were regarded as some of the best sounding headphones around £100 even compared to wired models. I admit I’ve never used Y500s but they don’t look as well built?

whathifi.com/rev…iew Three years on and the Y50BT’s successor, the AKG Y500 Wireless, ups the game once more, thanks to a smarter design and a hugely listenable sound.
These are amazing. I use for about 1.5 hours a day at the gym and the battery easily lasts over 2 weeks. Great sound quality. The C50BT (which are exactly the same) are often cheaper than this though

I saw that one. Then I read another review which put me off:

I just went and bought some A grade Y500s from CEX for £42. They are in as new condition, in the box with bag and cables etc etc and on initial listening they sound pretty good.

For the money I'm happy, especially being able to connect to both my personal and work phone while in the office. I think, like most headphones and speakers they will improve over time as they loosen up.

I'd have to agree with you on all but the last part. Having repaired the mrs's pair only last week for the 2nd (and final) time. The mechanism that allows the earcup to rotate a little bit is limited by a very small piece of plastic which snapped off. The earphone cup constitutes quite a long lever acting on this small part very close to the pivot. This part also keeps the earcup attached to the stem. Once it snaps the cup falls off. I've managed to superglue the ear cup rigidly to the stem, setting the position permanently using the mrs's head to set the angle "as worn" as a long term fix but opening them up and looking at the design it's clear they won't take rough treatment.
