FTC Disclosure

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. I do not collect information on my readers. If cookies or other tracking stuff is used on my blogs it is due to BLOGGER not ME. Apparently the European Union's new rules state I need to inform you if cookies are being use. If they are it isn't byu me, consider yourself INFORMED.
Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't, whether I got it free or NOT!

AKG Y50 Yellow On-Ear Headphone with In-Line One-Button Universal Remote/Microphone

I was a touch nervous about the comfort of this type of  headphone.   I know if the sound is great you can suffer but I still was concerned.  I was pleasantly surprised that the headphones are light and are quite comfortable to wear.  

The sound was quite good.  Makes me wonder why I put up with earbuds for so long.  There is a definitive base but it is not overwhelming.  I tried some Black Eyed Peas, some Who and Pink Floyd and was pleased with the range of sound. 

I also liked the outside sound dampening.  The classic rock channel was on the TV and I could not hear Credence Clearwater even with the sound on the headphones at a low level.    That is good but it does make me wonder about all the people you see running or walking with headphones of this type.  They have to be oblivious of any outside noise such as a rabid coyote chasing them.  Of course, the volume of the music can create the same level of oblivion which is obviously what some of them want. 

I did test the microphone and did some dictation to my email.  Seemed to work just fine.  The sound quality is the main reason you would buy this headset but the comfort factor should be considered as well.   Frankly I thought this was every bit as good as the headphones my grandson uses that cost three times this price.  
From the vendor: 
Signature AKG-quality sound with enriched bass performance
On-ear headphone with closed ear-cup design for reduced ambient noise
Long-lasting, comfortable fit with rugged, lightweight design
Detachable cable with inline, one-button remote/mic for complete hands-free accessibility
3D-Axis folding mechanism and pouch for easy storage and safe transport

If reviewing a product, it may have been received free of charge. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
