Boasting the signature AKG sound, the Y40 headphones are a class act. High power, 40mm drive units and a revised, closed-back design gives the AKG Y40 an intense, powerful sound. Yet, thanks to their innate quality and passive noise isolation, subtle detail is carefully revealed and nuances can clearly be heard. In short, whatever you listen to will be superbly presented and involving.
New to the Y40 model is a universal remote and microphone design. With its three-button control, the Y40 allows the following operations; Android - Answer/Mute/End (press and hold), Play, Pause, Skip forward, Volume. iPhone - Answer/End, Play, Pause, Skip forward/back.
The unique 3D-axis mechanism doesn't just make these headphones easy to fold and carry, it also ensures a perfect fit against your ears. The soft, padded, headband and ear pieces further add to the long term. Although light and comfortable, the Y40s are durable, too. A detachable cable and folding design helps when transporting the headphones, while solid build quality is a step or two up from many rivals. A soft travel pouch is also included.
For a serious step-up in sound quality plus the bonus of control and talk on your smartphone, the Y40 continues the AKG tradition of greatness.
