Samsung AKG Y500 On-Ear Wireless Headphones

As part of a new trio of wireless headphones, Samsung has debuted the AKG Y500 on-ear Bluetooth headphones. While they don’t sport an adaptive noise-canceling feature like the high-end option of that trio — those are coming later this year — they do boast “Ambient Aware” technology, which still tames the outside noise around you, just not on such a fine-grained scale.

The Y500s have two other features worth mentioning as well:

  1. Multi-point Bluetooth connectivity — You can pair them with two devices at once, and they will intelligently switch from one to the other as needed.
  2. Play and pause automation — The audio pauses automatically when you take the headphones off, and resumes playback when you put them back on.

What’s more, they offer up to 33 hours of audio playback, with a 5-minute “quick recharge” feature that adds another hour to that clock when you need it most.

The Samsung AKG Y500 headphones are $150 on Amazon and come in four colors:
