AKG announces new addition to its Y-Series headphone collection
AKG has released its new Y-Series headphone collection, which includes three models and aims to offer a modern aesthetic within the brand. The on-ear headphones have a closed earcup design, reducing ambient noise, and a folding mechanism for easy storage.
The lightweight AKG Y50 features 40mm drivers and a 1.2-meter cable with remote and mic for hands-free calling. The AKG Y40 sports blue, yellow and black accents on its band, with its miniature earcups featuring AKG-branded details. The wireless Bluetooth model, the AKG Y45 BT, offers eight hours of charged performance and earcup-mounted volume and mic controls. This model is available in black with grey trim, or white with a beige trim. Pricing for the Y-Series headphones begins at $150, with availability anticipated this month.
