Tired of constantly recharging your wireless headphones? The Y500 Wireless On-Ear Headphones from AKG features a 900mAh rechargeable battery that provides up to 33 hours of playback time while streaming audio via Bluetooth. If you happen to need a quick boost of playback time when you're out of juice, just charge them for 5 minutes and the Y500 headphones will have enough power for up to 1 hour of use.
While you can pair the Y500 headphones to any Bluetooth-compatible mobile device, if you pair them with your smartphone you can utilize the built-in microphone to take advantage of hands-free calling. To make the Y500 on-ear headphones easier to use when on the go, AKG has included a host of convenient features, such as Ambient Aware, playback automation, and multipoint support.
Connect to 2 Devices with Multipoint
With multipoint technology, these headphones can be paired and used with two Bluetooth-compatible devices simultaneously. For example, pair them with your personal and work phone, and flip back and forth between the two as needed.
Hear the World with Ambient Aware
Ambient Aware technology is designed to give you the ability to let surrounding audio in while listening to music. With the press of a button, this technology gives you the ability to hear announcements or have a quick conversation without regularly having to take your headphones on and off.
Play & Pause Automation
Thanks to play and pause automation, you never have to miss a note with the Y500 headphones. This feature automatically pauses your audio when you take them off, and resumes playing when you put them back over your ears.
