Samsung’s new AKG wireless headphones are available starting today
Upgrade your music.
During the IFA 2018 tech show held in Berlin, Harman announced a whole lot of new products on the horizon for Samsung audio fans. One of those announcements was a new lineup of AKG wireless headphones. The flagship product, the N700 noise-cancelling headphones, is not quite available yet, but the Y500 and Y100 headphones are on Amazon, AKG.com, and other retailers starting today.
The AKG Y500 are wireless on-ear headphones that use multi-point connectivity to support two Bluetooth devices at one time. They have a battery life that lasts up to 33 hours on one charge, too, so you can listen all day without worrying about running out of power. These headphones start at $149.95.
The $99.95 AKG Y100 are wireless Bluetooth headphones similar in design to other headphones we’ve seen like the Aukey BP-40. They are light, durable, and meant to be used all day even while on the go. The headphones use a feature called Ambient Aware, which lets you decide how much surrounding noise you’re hearing. That way you can dive into your music while sitting on the subway and be more aware of what’s happening while you’re crossing the street.
If you can hold out a little while longer, the AKG N700 headphones will be available later this fall. These headphones will be the best of the best of what AKG offers, including adaptive noise-cancelling with a 20-hour battery life, and AKG’s best sound technology. They will start at $349.95. If you’re looking for something in this range at this very moment, try the Bose QuietComfort Series 35 II for $349 or Sony’s brand new WH-1000XM3 over-ear headphones for $348.
