The BeoPlay H6 over-ear headphones give you authentic sound that's built on a clear midrange and a careful balance between bass and treble. This level of audio quality is delivered by 40 mm custom-designed drivers with neodymium magnets that are perfectly angled to get the best distance and sound direction into your ears. There's also an internal bass port to ensure carefully balanced bass performance from this closed headphone design.
Optimal sound and fit
To provide the ideal listening experience, B&O PLAY thoroughly studied the shape and curves of the human ear to determine the proper geometries that reduce sound leakage and reveal all the fine details in the music no matter what the volume.
The primary structural components are made of anodized high-grade aluminum, so BeoPlay H6 is surprisingly light as well as robust and scratch-resistant. There's even anodized aluminum on the adjustable slider arm and cover plate to finish the design with a final vibrant touch.
Superb industrial design
Danish industrial designer Jakob Wagner collaborated with B&O PLAY in shaping BeoPlay H6. His training as a mechanical engineer and industrial designer allowed him to influence all the practical stages of the design process.

Unique and powerful headphone!
I recently saw this headphone from the Apple Website and I went to my local Apple Retail for a try, the result is that I bought th I recently saw this headphone from the Apple Website and I went to my local Apple Retail for a try, the result is that I bought them right after, they are just great! I also have the Beats Studio Wireless and even those two both have really great sound quality, the Beo H6 is much better when you listen to song that is more mid range and those songs which has more voice than more bass effect, where as the Beats headphones just completely focus on bass, I highly recommend this headphone for those who want a really fashion and also great sound headphones, also I have to say that there built quality and comfort.......No.1 compare with any headphone I ever had and try. Really love them and highly recommend!! …

Superb & uncompromising headphone
These headphones are impeccable quality both in sound and build quality, with amazing style and sophisticated aesthetics. The hea These headphones are impeccable quality both in sound and build quality, with amazing style and sophisticated aesthetics. The headphones are surprisingly light despite being built out of high-quality aluminium and leather, with memory foam padding making them easy to listen to for hours. The sound is definitely the best I have ever heard from headphones, I have Bang and Olufsen speakers at home and the H6's are the closest thing I have heard to loud speakers, the sound is exceedingly full with a clarity of sound and positioning second to none. I would definitely recommend these to anyone looking for premium headphones, as well as the exceptional service Bang and Olufsen provides their customers. …

A different suggestion to sound. Excellent Design/ Clear Sound
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 s 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 ;) …

Which is better (in terms of sound, quality, and durability) B&O H6 or B&W P7?
- Asked by Robert Z from Harrisburg
Both are great headphones, if you want bass the P7s will push out higher bass. Both headphones have Both are great headphones, if you want bass the P7s will push out higher bass. Both headphones have great sound and are of high quality. However, for me the H6 blocked out more external sound than the P7s so I went with the H6 as they fit better, and heavy bass wasn't important to me. …

which is better beats studio wireless or B&O H6 ?
- Asked by Swetha B from Warrensburg
I want to preface this answer with that I only spent time in an apple store reviewing their headphon I want to preface this answer with that I only spent time in an apple store reviewing their headphone options. That said I've been into hi-fi music and "sound quality" for a long time so I think I can give a perspective.
I think the H6 are great BT that it greatly depends on the music you listen to. The beats (and others) works better for popular and electronic music as they carry a lot more 'UMPH'. But for Jazz, Classical and Voice the H6 sounds to my ears much more natural even played directly through an iPhone/iPod Touch (i.e without an amp). Voices and Double Base for example sounds more "live" and natural. That said for electronic, pop or rock music they H6 sounds good to my ears but not very engaging. Electric Guitar for example are as engaging as some other headphones.
For me the H6 will be my choice of next headphones (might buy them today). They work for the type of music I listen too and are the most comfortable ones to wear. That said I listen mostly to Jazz and more and more classical so my needs are quite different from the norm. …
