Samsung AKG N700NC Headphones

N700NC

N700NC:

  • Adaptive Noise Cancelling (with the push of a button you can control how much surrounding noise you let in -which is perfect for those who love to immerse themselves completely in the music)
  • Perfect Calls and Talk Thru (the perfect balance between noise cancellation and ambient awareness that eliminates intrusive echoes and gives you crystal clear voice calls)

Y500:

  • Multi-point Connectivity (allows users to pair two Bluetooth connected devices at the same time)
  • Ambient Aware (with a single tap you can control the surrounding sound)
  • Automatic Play & Pause (when you take off the headphones it automatically pauses what you're listening to and then when you put them back on over your ears it resumes play)
  • Long-lasting Battery Life (up to 33 hours on a single charge, which takes 2.5 hours)

Y100:

  • Light and Durable (with that same crisp and clean sound -which is perfect for on-the-go listeners)

  • Decent Battery Life (up to 8 hours on a single charge, which takes 2 hours to charge)

And to top it all of, each of these wireless headphones are optimized for balanced and studio-quality sound. Alanna Cotton, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Mobile Computing and Enhancements at Samsung Electronics America says that, "Our new series of AKG wireless headphones allow users to enjoy music exactly how it was intended to be heard by the artist - perfectly balanced and true-to-life."
