"We’ll get straight to the point: the AKG Y50BTs are superb – a rare example of headphones that are equally excellent across audio performance, features, design and build quality." That's what we said on awarding five stars to the AKG Y50BT (opens in new tab) wireless on-ears – and that was at their original price of £150.
Now though, you can pick up a pair of these excellent AKGs for just £70 at Richer Sounds. (opens in new tab) That's a 53 per cent saving on their original price, and a £30 discount on their most recent retail price.
The Y50BTs are a few years' old now, and stock is limited across UK retailers, so if you're tempted by these budget wireless headphones we wouldn't hang around.

Bags of detail go hand-in-hand with clarity. You get all manner of texture to instruments and vocals; a performance that’s as entertaining as it is competent. A top deal on a class-leading set of wireless cans.
We'll include another quote from our AKG Y50BT review below just to whet your appetite, but really our advice is this: if you're in the market for a new pair of on-ear wireless headphones, you'll be hard pushed to find a better bargain.
"The sound is extraordinary by wireless standards, easily good enough to pass for a good wired performance. It’s remarkably clear, offering the sort of insight makes it easy to tell the calibre of the talent on hand."
There you are, then. Enjoy.
