Rated 5 out of 5 by from Marvelous ! I want to let everyone know that I was not able to turn on the bluetooth following instructions. However I called support and the call was answered IMMEDIATLY ! How unusual that is. They instructed me to hold the power botton (the one between the aux jack and LED) down 3 to 5 seconds. I tried that a number of times with no reaction of the LED. I then touched the button with as brief a push as possible and immediatly the blue LED started to flash and I was able to quickly pair with my phone . The other factor that others who have probably had similar issues is the charging port and light on the left ear cup. When the USB cable is connected to a charger a RED LED comes on to indicate charging is taking place. Once the battery is charged the LED will go out. If you remove and reinstall the charger the LED will come on again, but maybe for less than 1 minute. Again this is an indication that the battery is charged and not an indication that the charger doesn't work. Frankly all that is really required is plainly state the above information on the instructions in appropriate translations for the dozen languages included. A good product with good support but absolute rubbish for included information. Other than this issue the audio quality is very clear, bass is reasonable but clean. Physically the build is far better than most over ear phones that I have previously experienced. Very pleased, don't let my comments above disuade you. I really made this post to help others avoid frustration of turning them on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable & Sound Great! I got these headphones for Christmas and am still thoroughly enjoying them. They sound great and although they aren't noise-cancelling, they do a pretty decent job of blocking out background noise. I use them at work and at home and use them at night to fall asleep. They're really comfortable and have saved me more than once when I wanted to sleep and block out background noise. The battery is also really good. I can wear these for days without charging. I don't think I've ever run out of battery, but typically don't go more than 3-4 days without charging because I don't want to be left in a lurch. I highly recommend these headphones for comfort, sound and longevity.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great set of headphones! got these in the Samsung fully immersive promotion, the headphones are great, seem well constructed and sound awesome, the padding is nice and soft, and the Bluetooth connectivity is great. What sets these apart is the pass through option I have used it both to save battery and when I've killed the battery. All around awesome set of headphones. My favorite pair I own

Rated 5 out of 5 by from After reading several professional reviews stating that this is the best set of headphones in its class at this price point, I purchased this pair of headsets as a gift for my 27 yr. old nephew who is in computer networking and somewhat of a techie. He said that the headphones are great sounding and very comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You won't regret this purchase. Would buy again and again. Exceptional sound and battery life. Deep, accurate base. Very detailed throughout the range. They don't get hot on my ears like my over-ear Sennheisers. Comfortable, but a little heavy if you're on the move. Like if I stand up and they're not centered, they'll slide off my head. Sound does transfer when taking steps too, may be the seal to my ear giving. Instant pairing is nice but occasionally it doesn't pick up and I have to go into my phone settings. Sometimes it picks up when they're in my work bag and I have to turn Bluetooth to severe connection.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Got these for Christmas just past, and they are without shadow of doubt, the BEST headphones I've ever had. The build quality, sound quality, ease of use... I coupled these with my Oneplus 2 phone with a maxxaudio equaliser, and they're simply brilliant. 10/10

How long should these take to charge? The "manual" has three words: "solid red charging." Well, I connected these to my phone's QC 2.0 charger overnight (for about 10 hours) and the light was still solid red in the morning. So were they still charging?

Asked by: nurbles62
This is normal. We recommend that you always use the charger that is provided to you in the box when charging our wireless products. In some cases, the LED light would keep on while charging the unit, but will not turn off once it's fully charges, no matter how long charging continues and will show a constant light indicator. This is caused by tolerances in the circuits, and is no cause for alarm. The battery is charged to the same level. If the LED is not turning off when the Y50BT at full charge, please submit an case on https://us.akg.com/support-returns-and-warranty.html and the Customer Service team will be more than happy to further assist you.

Is there a reset button or a way to reset the headphone? Mine will not turn on and they are brand new, only used twice...

Asked by: jessiecox24
I’m sorry to know that you are having issues with the Y50BT. Unfortunately, there is no reset option with this headphone. Press and hold the power button for 3 seconds which is located on the right side of the headphone. The Y50BT charging LED light should turn constant amber. If this doesn't help, please submit a case request at https://us.akg.com/support-contact.html and the Customer Service team will be more than happy to further assist you.

Please clarify which is 'Left' and 'Right'. The cs answers and the pictures in the guide don't match up. Even the cs reps answers contradict each other.

Asked by: timb57
Sorry for the confusion. As shown in the Quick Start Guide, All controls are on the right while the charging port is on the left ear capsule. The left/right indications are printed inside the ear pads audio passage.

Is there a way to turn off the annoying flashing blue light?

Asked by: sciven
Unfortunately, there is no way to turn off the blue LED light since that indicates if your device is connected via Bluetooth or not.

Yes, the mic is on the right ear cup of the Y50BT where you will find the control buttons.

Is it possible that my right/left markers were put on the wrong sides? The "R" side has all the controls and the "L" side has the charging port. They also rotate wrong.

Asked by: gmoney007
As shown in the Quick Start Guide, the mic is on the right ear cup of the Y50BT where you will find the control buttons while the charging port is on the left. If you're having issues rotating them, please submit a case request at www.jbl.com/support-contact.html and the Customer Service team will be more than happy to further assist you.

When in use the LED flashes blue slowly and constantly. This is somewhat noticeable and distracting in dark environments, or when in front of a reflective computer or tablet screen. Is there anyway to disable this?

Asked by: Rich
Hi Thank you for your question. There is no way to disable the flashing LED, the best suggestion I can offer is to cower it with a sticker. if you have further question, please contact our help-desk.

Is it possible to connect the Y50BT to a laptop as a headset not just headphones? It works great as a headset with my phone but not with my Windows 10 laptop.

Asked by: rcnc
The Y50BT does not require any specific drivers. It utilizes the standard Bluetooth Stereo Audio drivers available in most laptops. There are two different Bluetooth protocols, one for Headset Audio used for talking on the telephone, and the other for high quality stereo audio listening. Being that the Y50BT is a headphone; your computer must connect to the Y50BT using the headphone protocol which is HSP and HFP Bluetooth Profiles. Your best bet is to go into your control panel and find the Bluetooth setup. This setup usually provides a setup wizard and will take you through the steps to install the drivers needed for Stereo Audio. If you do not have it, you may download these generic Bluetooth profiles which should normally be possible through your computer manufacturer's website or through your Operating System's Support Team.
