Too expensive for what's on offer

from NDTV

The AKG Y500 headphones certainly aren't bad, but we'll stop short of calling them very good. We like how they look and feel for the most part, and the sound is decent if you like your bass punchy.

A fairly affordable pair for casual, outdoor use

from GSMArena

The AKG Y500 Wireless are a good pair of headphones with a stylish, compact design, good audio quality and great battery life for around $149. My major issue with these is the design of the ear cups, which is uncomfortable and also makes it difficult to get reliably good sound every time without constant adjustments. If

The Samsung AKG Y500 are affordable on-ear headphones. They deliver good audio quality, have premium design, and come with great battery life. The ambient aware is a good feature, and the compact design makes it an idea travel companion. It does have some downsides in terms of codec support, medium bass, output could have been a little louder.

Ultra-compact on-ear headphones for audiophiles

from TechHive

AKG's Y500 on-ear wireless headphones sport an ultra-compact, folding form factor and good wireless features, but their wired performance is where they really shine.
