Made to suit your style, the sleekly designed Y500 allows you to wirelessly stream your favourite songs. When you take your headphones off, the song pauses and then resumes when you put them back on. Control the volume and take calls, thanks to simple on-ear controls. The Y500 also come with a long-lasting battery and fast charging*.

Connect multiple devices

You can pair two compatible devices simultaneously. This means that if you’re listening to music on one device and receiving a call on the other, the headphones will intuitively switch to the call and back to the music once you hang up. The one-button remote cable means you can easily switch between listening to music and taking calls.

Connect multiple devices

Long battery life with fast charging

Enjoy up to 33 hours of the music that soundtracks your day. With a quick 5-minute recharge, you can keep the music going for an additional hour.*

Ambient Aware technology
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good sound, but not Noise Cancelling Despite this page title indicating that they are noise cancelling, and despite me writing Samsung and AKG about this being misleading, it still remains as such, likely to disappoint other buyers besides me. The fit is slightly tight, but snug. I wish I could reduce the volume of the "Ambient Aware" notification sound when it is switched on- I find myself wincing or holding the speakers away at that point. Aside from these points, the sound is very pleasant, and has enough weight, without accentuating any particular frequencies too much. They're still far off the sound of a wired, open back headphone costing the same, but they fold up small, and look very appealing. Bluetooth connection is very fast, and seems reliable. Unlike my other Bluetooth headset, this one communicates its battery level to my phone, which is handy. The ambient aware mode is a nice feature, but I wish it were a little more configurable so I could decide how much ambient sound to let in. It took me a week to discover these are in fact foldable! The included cables allow for use even if the battery becomes depleted, and one even comes with an iphone-style hands-free on-the-wire microphone, for use with phones that sensibly still have a headphone jack, or laptops with a similar input / output.
