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.

I have owned Bose QuietComfort 15, currently have a pair of Sennheiser Momentum, i have decided to give it a try. Well, that's one of the smartest decisions I have made since I purchased Sennheiser Momentum. If you are a fan of good sound, you need no introduction of Sennheiser Momentum, i would say Beoplay H6 is on the same level as Momentum, even better in some aspects. In terms of style,its looks speaks for itself, I haven't seen a more beautiful headphone than this, and that including Momentum. Don't let the beauty fools you, its sound is just as nice as it looks. If you are looking for heavy bass, go look somewhere else, i can say this is hands-down the most balanced headphone on the market (in the 400 dollars range). No matter how loud you turn on the volume, it doesn't distort the sound, it let you hear every single keys. Its light weight enables you to wear it for hours without feeling it is on your head. What i like about is its bigger earcups, if you have big ears like me, wearing Momentum for longer duration can hurt my ears and make them steamy, this problem doesn't exist with Beoplay H6. However, i found it will make your good tracks (320kbps) even better, and expose your bad tracks (256 kbps or less) even more. It also can be folded for easy storage (Momentum can't be folded). It has two connections ports (one each under the earcup), allows you to share music with other people, just by plugging the 3.5mm jack into the other connection port. Overall, it is one of the elite headphones I have experienced (in the 400 dollars range). If i have to pick between Beoplay H6 and Momentum, I would pick Beoplay H6, because of its balanced sound, better design and portability, lastly, bigger earcups. So, if you have extra 100 bucks to spare, i would say go for it, you won't regret it. (If you do regret it, you have the Applestore 14 days return policy :)

Great quality for 399
Most of my stereo stuff is Bang & Olufsen. So when I found out that they were going to make a new headphone set to compete with others on the market I was exci Most of my stereo stuff is Bang & Olufsen. So when I found out that they were going to make a new headphone set to compete with others on the market I was excited. The old Form 2 headphones, which b&o has had for years, really needed to be updated. first off let me say that if you like listening to heavy rock or Rap then these headphones are not for you. These headphones have a well balanced frequency range. While most headphones concentrate on heavy bass, the B&O H6 allow you to hear the mids and highs that you wouldn't hear with other headphones, with just the right amount of bass. These headphones are crafted in aluminum with plastic with large driver magnets. Real Australian leather, which is supposed to be a lot smoother. They have very comfortable ear cushions and at times you forget you are even wearing them. These are not noise canceling but they do a good job at silencing noises around you so that you can enjoy your music. Overall these headphones are well worth it at 399.

Background about me, past concert violinist, so I have very sensitive and pick ears. All of my audio equipment is B&W (802 diamonds, zeppelin air mm1 to name a few)so I was initially leaning towards the p7. 1) never buy a headphone based in the apple store demo. The connections are all frayed, and the true character of all headphones seldom comes out. 2) give it at least 20 hours to open up. They will sound tinny and lack bass in the 20 hours of listening, then they will open up. I believe this is why some reviews say that are bass light. That is not the case. I'm not usually a big proponent of burn in but for these I absolutely believe it. 3) I listen to all kinds of music, from classical to dubstep and everything in between. Amazingly balanced soundstage and you will hear detail you have seldom heard before. For lovers of acoustical, classical, vocal, and jazz nothing more needs to be said. But... For electronic music lovers I highly recommend it contrary to conventional wisdom. Why? To anyone who has been to a club with a Funktion 1 setup or other hifi setup, yes the bass rattles you to your core, but actually it's the mids and highs that knife through all the noise and encompass you. The amazing clarity of vocals or the crescendoing instruments, that's what gets you. On the h6 those aspects are so sharp, where normal headphones distort and crack, these just deliver a visceral scream when needed. And also, I truly believe these headphones actually deliver music the way it was produced, sure, if you listen to a track that only has a bass line and a vocal rapper, these headphones, but any kind of music with instrumental sophistication (even Kanye and J' more recent music will show that layering) will avail itself here.

But after about 10 month I noticed that the brouwn leather starts to get little black furrows. And it got worse by the time. I asked B&O what should I do, after some mails and sending photos of the H6 I got a replacement. Now another 8 moth later the leather's surface is scaling off again. My disappointing conclusion is that H6 is not prepared for a frequent use.

I'm Acoustic music lover and I own B&W p7 the only thing I don't love about my B&W is that it's heavy on my ear, So I read review about H6 and how it is comfort I'm Acoustic music lover and I own B&W p7 the only thing I don't love about my B&W is that it's heavy on my ear, So I read review about H6 and how it is comfortable so I bought it but I found that the sound of H6 doesn't compare with the sound of B&W p7 specially when it comes on acoustic songs(Guitar) with B&W I can even feel the strings which I can't with B&O H6. B&W make me more live and enjoy the music.

Average sound great build

While they are superior in comfort and perhaps even build (the wire on my P5s broke regularly and eventually the headphone band) they are inferior when it comes to sound. There's almost no bass delivery at low volumes and it's generally quite a cold, flat sound. I'd go for the P7s over these or I've just switched to the AKG K845BT which aren't quite as light or comfy as the H6 but have a richer sound and offer Bluetooth connectivity at a significantly lower price.

I use a Optoma NuForce uDac3 with my H6's. Don't be put off by the small size or low price - it is I use a Optoma NuForce uDac3 with my H6's. Don't be put off by the small size or low price - it is an amazing headphone amp which plugs into your computer USB and also significantly improves sound quality via the onboard processor. I don't believe it's carried by Apple but can be got on Amazon

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.

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.
