What Hi-Fi? Awards 2018 winner. Excelling in sound and style, the Y50s have been Award winners for five years running. For the money they're class leaders - clear, detailed, rhythmic, dynamic and punchy.

These AKGs are a touch on the quiet side – if you like things loud, turning up your device’s volume will drain its battery quicker than usual – but that aside, these are faultless budget headphones.

The leather earpads sit firmly on the ears, the stainless-steel headband is durable, and portability isn’t an issue thanks to a neatly designed mechanism that lets them fold flat and collapse inwards for easy storage. Their clear, rhythmic and detailed sound performance is unquestionably the highlight, however, having not been trumped by any pair of similar-priced rivals in the five years since their arrival.
