AKG unveils a trio of Bluetooth headphones: N700NC, Y500 and Y100

Samsung and AKG unveiled a new line of wireless headphones that range from large over the ear models to compact in-ear ones.

AKG N700NC – over the ear

Soft ear cushions with memory foam promise a high level of comfort while the Adaptive Noise Canceling tech can block out outside sounds (you can adjust how much).

The AKG N700NC offer a flat-foldable design for easy portability and up to 20 hours of wireless playback with noise cancellation enabled (or 36 hours for wired playback with NC on).

AKG N700NC

These will be available later this year from AKG.com, Samsung.com and Amazon at $350.

AKG Y500 – on-ear

The AKG Y500 can pair with two devices, allowing you to easily switch between listening to something on your phone to something else on your computer. The headphones can detect when you take them off and will automatically pause playback.

There’s no noise cancellation on this pair, but they have Ambient Aware – a feature that can mix in outside sounds with your audio so you can hear what’s going on around you.
