Samsung, which now owns an AKG brand, today launched a new lineup of first-class wireless AKG headphones, including the N700NC, Y500 and Y100 – all optimized for balanced and studio-quality sound. Whether you’re an audio expert or a music enthusiast, the new series of AKG wireless headphones promises an unparalleled listening experience.

“AKG’s legacy of innovation and leadership in the audio space is second to none and at Samsung we are proud to unveil a new lineup of headphones that will bring studio-quality design and engineering to consumers everywhere,” said Alanna Cotton, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Mobile Computing and Enhancements at Samsung Electronics America. “Our new series of AKG wireless headphones allow users to enjoy music exactly how it was intended to be heard by the artist – perfectly balanced and true-to-life.”



N700NC Premium Over-Ear Noise-Cancelling Headphones

Combining the best in design with AKG’s award-winning sound technology, the AKG N700NC are the ideal over-ear headphones for music-lovers looking for best-in-class audio. With the N700NC, users will experience studio-quality sound thanks to a variety of premium, innovative features:

  • Adaptive Noise Cancelling: Users can control how much surrounding noise they want to let in – so they can immerse themselves in the music or keep an ear open to the world around them – all with the push of a button.
  • Perfect Calls and Talk Thru: World-class audio technology eliminates intrusive echoes, strikes the perfect balance between noise cancellation and ambient awareness, and results in crystal clear voice calls.
  • Long-Lasting Battery: With battery life that lasts up to 20 hours, users can listen to their favorite music throughout the day without having to worry about charging.

Y500 and Y100 Wireless Headphones

With AKG’s industry-leading audio technology, along with hours of battery life and speed charging capability built-into the headphones, the AKG Y500 on-ear and Y100 in-ear wireless headphones promise uninterrupted musical indulgence all day.

For a more seamless connection, the AKG Y500 wireless headphones feature Multi-point Connectivity, allowing users to easily pair two Bluetooth connected devices at the same time. And with the play and pause automation feature, users will never miss a beat – the AKG Y500 automatically pauses content when the headphones are taken off, and resumes play automatically when placed back over the ears.

The AKG wireless Y100 are light and durable headphones that bring crisp, clean sound regardless of the environment – whether on a train, at work or even out on the town. Like the Y500, the Y100 headphones also have Ambient Aware that offers more seamless control of surrounding noise with just a single tap.
