BeoPlay H6 by Bang & Olufsen

Built on core values of craftsmanship and technology. Bang & Olufsen introduced their first headphone, U70, back in 1978. Not many audio manufacturers can claim that many years of experience on the market. This means that principles introduced nearly four decades ago have been refined and developed further ever since. Finished in aluminium and leather, the Bang & Olufsen H6 on-ear headphones stand out with their luxury styling and extreme comfort - Designed by Jakob Wagner. Matched twin 40mm drivers supply the sound and are tuned for balanced playback across their range.

B&O PLAY Functionality

The inline microphone and three button remote make it simple to stay in touch and in control of your music while on the move. BeoPlay H6 has a bass port which optimizes the bass performance and the drivers are slightly angled to get the best distance and sound direction into the ears. H6 headphones also support daisy chaining that allows a friend to connect and share your listening experience. The H6 headphones also allow the cord to be plugged into either the left or right for added ease of use.

Best in Class Audio Performance

To get the best possible sound experience, B&O PLAY conducted extensive studies in the shape and curves of the human ear to find suitable geometries that minimize sound leakage and reveal all the fine details in the music at any given volume level. BeoPlay H6 offers a truly natural and authentic sound performance with focus on a clear midrange with a balanced bass and treble performance. Includes a 40 mm custom designed driver with a neodymium magnet in a closed headphone design.

Full Usage with Superb Design

Carefully selected high quality materials like leather and aluminium make Beoplay H6 comfortable to wear and bring a sense of everyday luxury. Also, every day wear and tear merely adds patina, and makes BeoPlay H6 age beautifully. The softness of the lambskin on the ear pads is the first thing you’ll notice, when you put on BeoPlay H6. When you wear the headphone, the memory foam inside the ear pads adapts ensuring great comfort. The head band needs to be durable and age with grace. Therefore, we have chosen cow leather, that gains patina and personality when worn.

Colour Name:Natural Leather
Sources: iPhone5 alone, iPhone5 with FiiO E07k using LOD, iPhone5 with v-moda Verza DAC/amp, various computers using the v-moda Verza DAC/amp.

First impressions of the B&O H6: Much better than average soundstage for a closed headphone, very detailed bass that's neither emphasized nor recessed, and a midrange that has a lighter sound than most of the darker headphones I've been listening to for the past few months. The H6 signature (frequency response mostly) should compare favorably to the kings of 'Neutral', i.e. the Sennheiser HD600 and HD800, except that where the HD800 is noted for being slightly bright, the H6 is more neutral.

My most recent listening has been with the v-moda M100, Beyerdynamic Custom One Pro, Sennheiser Momentum On-Ear, Bose OE2i, ATH ESW9a, and the B&W P7. With the H6 I'm hearing detail I haven't heard since I had the Shure 1840 or since I last used my Sennheiser IE800 IEM's, although the M100 and to some extent the B&W P7 do have nearly as much upper range detail, when the bass is reduced or better controlled with a good headphone amp. I don't want to exaggerate my description of the H6 soundstage, but after playing a few hundred music tracks, I can say with confidence that it's very, very good. I played a series of test tone sweeps with a number of discrete tones as well, and everything seems very well balanced. It's easy for me to say that I love this sound, but what's more important is for readers to understand how it might sound to them.

The one quality of the H6 that I'm most certain of in terms of how potential customers will relate to it is the bass. The H6 bass is not light like the very pricy Shure 1840, nor does it have a lot of strength above neutral.

4.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful headphones 19 Aug 2013
By sarah
Colour Name:Black|Verified Purchase
The sound quality of the headphones is excellent, as expected. I can definitely hear parts of the music that I could not hear before. I've seen reviews stating the bass is not great but I disagree, It mightn't be boosted but its so clear that it sounds deeper than before.

They are also unbelievably comfortable to wear, which I hadn't expected. I thought they would be the same as any headphones but I have pillows that are less comfortable against my head.

The design is lovely, very sleek. The lettering on the side is less prominent than expected which is a good thing. The bag thing they gave with it is a bit bizzare, useless really.

My only problem is that the inline controls on the headphone wire will not work for non-apple products. A bit aggravating as the advert does not specify that. You can still use your own controls on your player but having the volume thingy there is going to drive me insane as it doesn't work. Its located right beside your chin too, so there can be no simply ignoring it. I will have to discover if they have a wire without that control on it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb Headphones 11 Mar 2014
Colour Name:Black|Verified Purchase
I am not an headphone geek but have tested many models in the premium price range. These headphones are excellent, in fact they are awesome delivering brilliant sound and they are unbelievably comfortable. While the idea of wireless headphones has always appealed to me and to this end I really rated the Bose AE2w but after testing them over a prolonged period the sound quality was not always perfect and the bluetooth 4.0 seemed to cause issues by spontaneously altering the volume control on my iPad Air. As a result I came to the conclusion that wired headphones offer the best sound quality, performance and listening experience. Being over-ear together with the quality/softness of the ear pieces enables them to achieve great noise isolation and comfort.

When travelling however when noise cancellation is important I still rate my wired Bose QC20i earbuds, as their ability to drown out the noise of jet engines is beyond compare and their size and portability are a real bonus as is there ability to let you hear sounds around you when you need to for example in arrival/departure halls. At home though and on holiday I have come to appreciate the performance and comfort of the H6 headphones. They deliver well balanced sound without the ear pounding base we've come to expect from many other models. These are premium quality headphones beautifully constructed and delightful in use.

The travel bag is a bit of a let down and according to B&Os own FAQs those who choose the natural leather model are warned that the bag may stain the colour of the natural leather on the headphones. As an alternative I found that the HeadphoneMate case that I got from Amazon for the Bose AE2w headphones fits the H6 perfectly and is not overly expensive. I really rate these headphones and would not hesitate in recommending them to others.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb and uncompromising headphones 30 Jun 2014
Colour Name:Natural Leather
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.
