Y45BT is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome headphones for my needs I was looking into some wire free headsets for many purposes. Office, Gym, and Auto. The Bluetooth works seamlessly, and the sound excellent as you would expect from AKG. The fit is snug which even allows use while running on the treadmill. Even better, the battery life is excellent (I only charge a couple times a week). The only thing you have to keep tabs on is the cell phone battery as the Bluetooth use consumes more battery (as expected). All in all, I'm glad I made the purchase and would be staying with the brand(s) in the future.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good features I had used a wire headphones of this brand for 3 years. I was extremely satisfied. I've dicided to buy wireless headphones. I bought AKG Y45 BT (white) a few weeks ago. Great sound (I didn't expect any other) Great design and size of pads. Especially for girl. Battery life more than 8 hours. (Unfortunately, AKG doesn't have wireless headphones of this kind of design with longer battery life.) Plastic is durable and pleasant to touch. Detachable bypass cable for listening direct - good decision. Great noise blocking. BUT I can not use it to do calls. Connection is cutting off. Bad sound and volume. There are no this kind of problem with detachable cable. This is disappointing. But anyway I'm happy to have it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Suit all my needs / but challenges with BT I purchased my Y45BT in early summer of 2017. They serve me well ever since. I did not experience the wear of the earpads, although my device is white... I wore them in pocket, in backpack, sidebag. I agree with the earlier comment that it may be a little tight, but to me it was an advantage that they did not fall while cycling. My only problem is an eventual breakup of connection in bluetooth mode (I am using an LG G4, which - I admit - does not have the best BT track record), which may be resolved by restarting everything (headphones + phone). I also cannot find an "official" source for the Windows 7/10 driver. I am satisfied with the wired connection (I am left handed, so the connector location is better at the right pad for me), but I miss the mic from the cable, it's a penny function, but badly missed!! With the exception of some subpar Rapoo headphones this the most easily foldable headphone I have used.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent sound quality, poor build quality. Got these as a gift within a few months the plastic disks in the pads kept slipping out of place and before long both pads had split completely. Manage to find some cheap replacements online not as comfortable but no issues with build quality. After about a year and a half the audio cable started to cut out in certain positions no doesn't work at all. Was going to leave 3* but decided 4* because the sound quality is good and also I dropped them in a pan of water, which i thought would finish them. But within in a day they had dried out with no loss in sound quality.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great value for money! Excellent sound and portability, ease of use and value for money (£69.99). Works great with my android Nexus 6P as well as other bluetooth devices such as my tablet and mac. Great for traveling wire-free.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice sound quality and bass, but terrible ear pads I'm really happy with the sound. I don't use so much the wireless option, I think there some bug noise when I use them without cable. The only negative point, is the ear pads falling apart after one year... Check the picture. I used clue, and now I'm using tape.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Sound let down by ear pads which don't last The sound quality, battery life and general look are great. Let down by ear pads which will fail! My wife and I have a pair each and the pads separate showing the foam underlayer. These have been looked after but have happened on both pairs. Should have called 6 months ago as I wasn't aware of the 2 year warranty. Now they want to charge £20 per pair for new pads + Delivery! Bad form!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ins, Outs, and What-Have-Yas For me, the product has been a bit of a mixed bag. I'll break it down down into pros and cons. Pros: - Excellent sound quality for a consumer-grade product - Better range than many of its counterparts (although I'd still like it to be better, more below) - Easily integrates with Windows 10 and contemporary mobile platforms - Control options on the device itself are convenient - Included accessories (carrying pouch and cables) are good quality Cons: - The earpads are too hard and too small - The fit is a little too tight and makes extended use uncomfortable (I wear eyeglasses, and the headphones cause my ears to hurt from being pressed against the stems after as little as an hour of use) - I've had issues linking with the Windows 7 Bluetooth adaptor - Obstructions severely limit transmission range - Bypass cable connects to the right channel instead of the left - No separate transmission device I purchased these headphones to replace an old pair of AKG K840KL, which I prefer in every way. They were larger, more comfortable, had better range and longer battery life than the Y45BT, but most significantly, they utilized a separate transmitter so that the K840KL could be used with any audio device, not only those with Bluetooth capability. Had I known that ahead of time, it may have proved a deal-breaker. Also, a word about the range. Unimpeded, the range is fantastic. In my office, for example, I can leave my cubicle and go to the kitchenette (~15 m away) without any disruption in the signal from my laptop. However, my office has an open layout, and there are no significant impediments on the entire floor. At home, it's a different story. I'm unable to reliably transmit from my PC (via dongle) to my kitchen on the other side of the wall (less than 5 m lateral distance). I'm considering other transmission options which may improve the signal at home, but I'm not expecting a great deal of improvement. Lastly, I have my concerns about the product's durability. I've only had the Y45BT for a few weeks, and so nothing's broken as of yet, but I feel very uneasy about subjecting them to anything untoward. The travel case helps to allay those concerns somewhat in terms of transport, however, their size and build strike me as quite delicate, and I'm afraid that one drop could spell disaster. Having said that, the only reason that I purchased these headphones was because the transmitter for my old K840KL's proved to be less than durable, and obviously consumers shouldn't expect wireless products to be built like tanks. Nevertheless, I've been consistently disappointed with the longevity of AKG products since it moved away from the niche of professional audio and began to court a wider consumer market, and in the absence of a satisfactory alternative, I would like to see AKG improve their products in this regard.

two questions in one, I know that the y45bt says that its wireless, does it also come with a connecting wire as well if so will I be able to use it with my mobile phone, I don't want to spend £95 on a set of headphones that aren't compatable

Asked by: master blaster
Yes they do, they come with a 3.5mm jack that connects to most phones/laptops/other devices.

Do the headphones have replacement rechargeable battery's and where can they be purchased.

Asked by: Alfiemac
Hi. Sorry, replacement battery is not available as original spare part. You would have to find a suitable battery from another source, if that is even possible.
