    A different suggestion to sound. Excellent Design/ Clear Sound

    • Written by from Nicosia

    I own this pair for some months now and I must say, this pair is one of the best closed-back consumer headphones out there. As a sound engineer I own a lot of headphones and I normally had to go with open-back headphones to find clear and transparent sound; most closed back are full of bass and delivering muddy sound with almost no high frequencies.
    H6 manage to deliver a transparent, clear sound, which at first sounds odd, especially when you didn't hear your music through such clear medium before. As soon as you spent a couple of minutes with it, you will start hearing things on songs you never heart before! I highly recommend this product, or at least try it and you will see the difference.

    Balance is great, bass is not boosted, still there at very low frequencies, while high frequencies are clear and transparent. Vocals are good.
    Negatives, no hardcase (smooth cloth one) and my ear doesnt fit really well within the cushions ;)

    Nice Headphone

    Design & Build Quality:
    I think this headphone is one of the most beautiful headphones on the market. When you hold it in your hands, it feels very well made with good quality materials. Everything feels expensive (they are actually expensive too!). B&O has always focused a lot on the design of its products and this one is no exception.

    Sound:
    This headphone is not meant for everybody.
    The sound is flat but well balanced. The mids and highs are very clear but the lows are almost absent (almost no bass). Compared to Sennheiser's Momentum, I find the Momentum to have a clearer sound but less wide sound stage than the H6.
    Many people may not like flat sound, since nothing is pronounced and it can become boring after a long period of listening. I personally prefer a warmer sound.
