Harman has released two new wireless headphones under its AKG brand in the the US, with one more model, a premium one with more advanced features promises to arrive later this year.The Samsung-owned company has started sales of the headphones with pre-order starting from today, you can buy the AKG Y100 earbuds and the Y500 on-ear headphones from AKG.com, Amazon, Samsung.com, Sprint and US Cellular. The Y100 has magnetic earbuds and fabric cables similar to ones used for the AKG-tuned in-ear headphones that come with the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S9. On the other hand, the advance Y500 is a pair of on-ear headphones that can connect to two Bluetooth devices at the same time. It can also automatically pause and start what’s playing when you take it off and put it back on. The Y500 is the best pick among the three with its amazing features to say less.
If you are a fan of quality and immersive listening experience then the N700Nc is the perfect bud to suit your taste, although the premium over-ear model which will be retailed latter this year would have been a better pick. The N700NC has adaptive noise canceling you can activate with the push of a button. In case you don’t want to block the world around you and want to remain aware of your environment, especially if you’re in public, you can simply leave it off.
According to Samsung and Harman, the N700NC has a 20-hour battery life, though it’s unclear if that’s with adaptive noise cancelling switched on which is believed to consume more energy while turned on, however does not determine a reduced battery life. The Y500 can potentially last longer (up to 33 hours), though, while the Y100 earbuds can last up to eight. You can buy the Y500 on-ear and the Y100 in-ear models for $150 and $100, respectively. The N700NC will set you back $350 when it arrives in the coming months.
