Samsung launches new range of AKG headphones in the US

Besides announcing that it is holding a ‘Galaxy Event‘ on October 11th where it’s expected to launch a new smartphone featuring dual camera setups front and back, Samsung and its partner, Harman, are bringing three new AKG wireless audio products to the US. The new range consists of the premium N700NC over-ear headphones with noise-canceling technology, the Y500 wireless on-ear headphones, and Y100 wireless earphones. 

The N700NC, as pictured above, are wireless, over-the-ear headphones that feature adaptive noise-canceling technology along with up to 20-hours of playback on a single charge. As you might expect with the N700NC’s being the premium model, they also come with a premium price tag of $349.95.

The Y500 wireless on-ear headphones (main image) cost $149.95 and are the middle-of-the-range model boasting Multi-point Connectivity as well as up to 33-hours of playback.

Costing $99.95, the Y100 earphones are said to be light and durable with the ability to pair up to two connected Bluetooth devices simultaneously. The earphones also feature Ambient Aware that lets users control the surrounding sound with a single tap.

Both the Y500 and Y100 models are available to purchase today from Samsung’s online store,, Sprint, US Cellular, and Amazon. Samsung says the premium Y500 headphones will become available to order later in 2018, which doesn’t leave too long to wait.
