We thought we had definitely lost sight of them, but Samsung has finally started the European distribution of the new AKG Y600 NC headphones, which we have already known since the end of 2019.
The reason for this long wait is unclear – although it is probably also linked to the global health emergency -, however this is now a thing of the past, at least for users residing in the United Kingdom, where Samsung has started to market the headphones by offering them at the price of 199 pounds (about 218 euros) in the colors Black, Gold and Silver.
The Y600 NC offer an active noise cancellation system and up to 25 hours of listening (4 hours of listening on a 10-minute charge) and integrate a USB Type-C connector. There is also an Ambient Aware mode, which allows you to listen to what is happening outside – so as not to remain completely isolated from the surrounding environment – and the possibility to pause the song being played simply by removing the headphones, which have a weight of 322 grams.
Other features include the 40mm drivers, frequency between 10Hz and 24kHz, the presence of touch controls dedicated to managing the volume and recall of voice assistants (Assistant, Bixby and Siri) and imitation leather and memory foam pads.
Together with the Y600 NC, Samsung has also put the AKG Y400 on the market, lower-end headphones that lose active noise cancellation and are positioned on a list of 109 pounds (about 120 euros) in the colors Black, Blue, Green, Pink and Rose Gold. Also in this case, there is the USB Type-C connector and a battery that offers 20 hours of continuous listening (always with fast charging from 4 hours of use in 10 minutes), support for Ambient Aware and TalkThru, hardware controls dedicated to control music playback and 36mm driver and frequency between 20Hz and 20kHz.
For both models, there is no known eventuality and availability for the Italian market: we just have to wait for more information. If you want to deepen the details, you can consult the official page of the headphones on the Samsung UK site that you find in the source.
