This seems to be cheaper than most others I can find - am tempted to get but thought I'd post in case it's useful for anyone else...and to see if anyone suggests any better headphones in this price range.

UPDATE: Also now change price on Amazon (Richer Sounds being the seller) but with free delivery.

"These AKGs are quite something. Bluetooth headphones that sound just as good as their wired counterparts." What Hi-Fi Sound & Vision Award Winner 2016.

Wireless freedom with Bluetooth
Wireless meets award-winning design with the AKG Y50BT headphones. Simply pair them up with your Bluetooth compatible smartphone, tablet, laptop, PC or Mac and you're ready to listen - cable free. The Y50BT uses rechargeable batteries that can provide up to 20 hours of music playback. A USB cable is provided for recharging and, with a standard 3.5mm cable supplied, the music can continue, even when you've exhausted the batteries.

AKG signature sound quality
The AKG Y50BTs boast class-leading sound quality. Larger than the Y40 models, the Y50s are ideal for use both on the move and at home. The larger size gives a deep, dynamic bass response that still has the typical AKG precison and refinement. The closed-back design keeps both outside noise blocked and also prevents leakage from the headphones to the outside world - making them a more commuter friendly pair of headphones.

Simple, effortless control and with mic built-in
With a clear and easy to locate control panel on the side of one earpiece, it's easy to control the Y50BT. Adjust the volume, play/pause, skip tracks and answer/drop calls all from the earpiece control pad (note, when running in passive/cabled mode these functions no longer operate). With a built-in microphone on one of the earpieces, it's also easy to make and receive hands-free calls.

AKG quality and comfort
The unique 3D-axis mechanism doesn't just make these headphones easy to fold and carry, it also gives a perfect fit against your ears. The soft, padded, headband and ear pieces simply add to the long term comfort of these headphones. Although light and comfortable, the Y50BTs are durable, too. The folding design helps when storing the headphones - as does the lack of cable! A soft travel pouch is also included.

Top quality sound with wireless freedom - AKG does it better than anyone in its class.

Great deal. Thanks.
Reviews look good, tempted!
These are awesome, the battery last close to 20 hours,and I have had them for a near year.fantastic sound.
These are amazing headphones, both using Bluetooth and when wired, especially with an amp. Really solid and well made, very comfortable to wear for long periods. I don't think there's realistically any competition at this price.
I need an over ear headphone. 😭
I've had the wired ones for well over a year now, and they're great. There's a big price difference for the wireless upgrade even at this price though.
just had my set stolen on holiday. will be looking to get these if the insurance pays out
I have the wired version of these and they are superb. I'm very tempted to sell those and go for these.

Maybe Sony MDR-XB650BTL ??
These have a major design fault, fold them away as your supposed to and they press against the on button. Usually flat when you need to use them! AKG customer service not interested apart from "any feed back taken into account in later revisions" lovely sound though
Use these every day, they're excellent
Noise leak from these will annoy fellow commuters.

No comparison. Buy the AKG if you value sound quality and accuracy. Buy the Sony (any Sony honestly) if you value bass levels instead.

I haven't tried the AKGs as yet, and reviews seem good, but yes, base is an important component in the sound quality for me
Received these as a gift to replace my Klipsch BT set (Image One).

I'd say these are on a par and very comfortable for over ear. Great sound but as someone mentioned there does seem to be some leakage for anyone nearby. Never noticed that with the Klipsch set.

How r these compared to beats solo 2 lux Currently at same price in Argos ?
Are the beats solo 2 bluetooth? I think these AKG headphones have better reviews.
Have just added that they are available with free delivery through Amazon (Richer Sounds being the seller). I bought a pair of these direct from the shop and am not disappointed
Fantastic headphones, very comfortable. No difference between quality when I use the wire v Bluetooth. Many, many thanks OP.
They are the best headphones I've ever had (unfortunately that doesn't say much because they are also the most expensive I've bought ).
Here are a couple of websites that tells you which tracks to listen to when testing headphones.
