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.

Great sounding headphones overall
These headphones are very comfortable on the head. The clamping pressure is much less than the P7, which is not a problem due to These headphones are very comfortable on the head. The clamping pressure is much less than the P7, which is not a problem due to their light weight. A large portion of the headphones is plastic, but it is excellent quality with no visible molding seams. These headphones are quite neutral sounding. The mids are clear and precise while the highs are crisp without causing discomfort. I tested the B&W P7 and M&D MH40 along with these. These were the only headphones that could be played at a high volume with little discomfort. Soundstaging is by far the best among the three. I was fairly convinced that I was actually at a live performance when listening to lossless AIFF files through my external DAC. However, the bass on these headphones is slightly less powerful than it should be. The bass dynamics on these left something to be desired, say during the last 5 minutes of Beethoven's Symphony #9. Unlike the other two headphones, the H6 sounded great with a wide variety of music. The P7 also had excellent mids and highs but sounded harsh when listening to violin concertos. If classical music and the like represents the majority of your music library, these are the best headphones under $500. …

Everyone's ears are different
To me, these are the best sounding headphones I've ever used. The clarity and sound stage are wonderful. They are comfortable. To me, these are the best sounding headphones I've ever used. The clarity and sound stage are wonderful. They are comfortable. The bass it tight and accurate. If you want heavy over-accentuated bass... to with Beats. I compared these to the B&W P7 and liked these better. There was a crispness to the midranges and highs. The B&W sounded warmer, which to me means a bit muddier. Everyone has their own sense of what sounds good. Try these out and you may feel you have found the best set available. …

Which is better (in terms of sound, quality, and durability) B&O H6 or B&W P7?

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. …

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. …
