Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Cable

Cable:
"-The cord that connects the unit is flimsy and will not last."
_
"- Cable has a microphone perfectly positioned close to your mouth, rather than all the way down the cord (I hate that).>Modern look with clean lines."
_
"I have a few other headphones in the 40mm driver class and I will say these ones are considerably lighter and thus more comfortable to wear.> Good overall design - A detachable cord means it's more stowable, and the cords can be replaced if damaged - Rubber yellow logos on one side of each driver so you can quickly orient the headphones to wear them on, even without looking - Headphone articulates to accommodate ergonomically."
_
"Nice attention to detail - quality parts, removable cord, nice bag etc."
_
"The AKG's come with two detachable well made cables including one with a remote for phone use."
_
"The detachable cord helps with storage as well."
_
"The detachable cord is a GREAT idea, but the cord should be sturdier."

Headphone

Headphone:
"However, I wear glasses and since these are on ear headphones, that's where most of the discomfort comes from."
_
"I look for headphones that don't interfere with my appreciation of music by creating erroneous sound, drowning out vocals with obviously artificially enhanced segments of the sound spectrum or by buzzing."
_
"I hear sounds that other headphones don't reproduce as well if at all."
_
"These are my second on ear headphones and these are not comfortable."
_
"This is something that I am unable to say about any other on-ear headphones."
_
"The only downside is that they're much heavier than all but studio-quality on-ear headphones I've used in the past!"
_
"A great pair of headphones especially for the price."
_
"Great pair of headphones."
_
"I like the creative design, but dont mistake it for a low-quality gimmick these are exceptionally well made headphones."
_
"Their bold look is perhaps a little out of character for the Austrian company, but its a clear step towards refreshing its entire headphone collection and attracting a younger market."
_
"This is by far the best on-ear headphones I've ever heard."

Music

Music:
"these have plenty of enjoyable bass and are very comfortable..I bought a used one from the Amazon warehouse...the are very good for someone who wants to just enjoy good music than being too critical of it (I am not...I enjoy everything that sounds good to my ears)...they look good and are much better than headphones you would buy for the same price..."
_
"I look for headphones that don't interfere with my appreciation of music by creating erroneous sound, drowning out vocals with obviously artificially enhanced segments of the sound spectrum or by buzzing."

_
"The sound is clear and they're great for a range of music tastes."
_
"These headphones are some of the best I have ever listened to music with."
_
"You can enjoy listening to all types of music on these headphones."

Noise

Noise:
"The more I use the phones on my daily commute to work, the more I realize that noise isolation is not as great as I first reported."
_
"However, the background noise cancellation is so good, its a bit scary."
_
"Even in a noisy environment, the Y50's closed-back design helps block the noise reasonably well and helps avoid disturbing those close by."
_
"The AKG Y 50's passive sound noise isolation is quite good."
_
"Good noise isolation."
_
"Other than that little issue, which many won't mind because they won't even use the mic, I'm very happy to finally have found these comfortable, great sounding, noise reducing, on-ear headphones at a very reasonable price."
_
"These are great at keeping the outside noise away, but letting you hear the music in terrific stereo sound!"
