Samsung introduced three brand new wireless AKG headphones on 14th September 2018, which is a selection of neck buds, on-ear, and over-the-ear headphones which have been named the Y100, Y500, and N700NC respectively. To promote environmental balance by controlling noise Samsung has planned to introduce these series of headphones.
The Y100s and Y500s both will have “Ambient Aware” technology that can allow the users to hear the surrounding sound, whereas the NC700NCs have adaptive voice canceling feature that will help users control the surrounding sound they want to hear.
Price Range from $99.95 to $345.95
Samsung has set the prices of all these three wireless headphones from $99.95 for the Y100 neckbands, $149.95 for the Y500 on-ear headphones and $349.95 for the more premium noise-canceling over-the-ear N700NCs. Although the N700NC headphones are the most expensive of the variant, in addition to the adaptive noise canceling, the Y500 headphones are equipped with many more features. The Y500s can automatically pause the music when the headphones are removed. It has a better life of 33-hours compared to 20 hours on the N700NCs.
