You don’t need to spent Beats money to get a good pair of headphones. The AKG Y50 are some of our favourite budget pairs of the last few years.
They have style, decent build quality and good sound. You can also get them in all sorts of colours, if you’re tired of boring old black headphones.
Their sound style isn’t a million miles away from that of the £150-plus Beats Solo 2. You get an extra injection of bass for a fun sound, plus it’s otherwise detailed, smooth and very easy on the ear. And easy one to recommend.
