Danish luxury electronics company B&O delivers a well-designed, classically inspired, high-performance headphone with the Form-2. "Bang og Olufsen" have stores all over Denmark, even in the smallest of towns. Yet in the US, they are few and far between. After the bygone age of the record player, few Americans know of or remember the company internationally known for function and design in electronics. Most of their products come with a hefty price tag, but the $99 MSRP for these on-ear headphones is a Benjamin well spent.

Design - the frame is made of a matte finished black plastic material. The adjustment mechanism is metal and slides cleverly into the plastic frame. The speakers themselves are positioned in a ball-and-socket joint and are removable for maintenance or accident-- I know from experience. Someone once tripped over my cord and instead of ripping the wire from the insert socket, the speaker itself detached from the frame of the headphones and landed safely in my lap. The speakers are, of course, round. But the foam pad is square. With some headphones, the foam decomposes after time but mine have withstood normal use for over two years and still look as new. The black cable also has a matte finish, something you don't normally see with electronics.

Comfort - The speakers fit comfortably over the ear without too much pressure. Only after prolonged use, do the top of my ears feel a bit numb. This can be easily prevented by moving the position of the speakers up or down over the ear.

Performance - Bass response is exceptional for the size of headphones, especially considering they aren't sound isolating like the more expensive Bose headphones. The sound is rich and is undistorted with the vast majority of songs.

without a doubt these are the best sounding headphones i've ever purchased although i'm greatly disappointed in the durability. i use these headphones at my desk at work and ONLY while sitting and working on the computer. within six months of purchasing them the plastic on the inside of the headphones broke next to the screws that hold the metal "slides" in place. i was very impressed with b&o when i brought them back to the store and they replaced them with no questions asked. but here i am, a year after that incident and my headphones are broken in the same spot and just two minutes ago they snapped completely in half when i was simply putting them on to my head.

so my review is mixed: the sound quality, as expected from b&o is phenomenal, although now that my second pair has broken in the same spot(s) with sedentary movement i'm not sure i'll get these again. it's a shame though, i really loved these headphones...

I've own them for 5 years now, they still sound excellent, very good for listening music at home, but not very recomendable for going out with them (must handle with care). They will improve A LOT the sound out of your mp3 player, cd player and you can enjoy the full potential of a nice home stereo system.
My ears do tend to hurt a bit after 2 hours with them, but that's enought time for me. Bass is incredible for the size they have, mid's are perfectly clear and hi tones are crispy, well defined and not ear piercing. Give them a try, you wont regret it. By the way, please excuse my english, I'm not a native speaker.

I'll admit it, I have a big head. Not in a full-of-myself sort of way, but in a need-a-large-hat sort of way. And if you have a big head like me, these headphones will break at the earpiece within a few months. It's a terrible design, really. Like other B&O products (the corded phone that could create its own feedback comes to mind) I have had the urge to buy, the form trumps function.

I love the way they look. If only they had taken into account things like, oh, say, head size? No, why would they do that for headphones? It's not like people put them on their heads or, you know, head is in the name of the product.

I needed a quality pair of headphones to use while I work. I am rather picky about sound and after some online research I found these B&O Form 2's. I bought them from my local Apple store $99.95+ tax and opened them as soon as i got home. The design is very attractive and the sound just blows me away! Unlike Bose headphones, which tend to be a bit bassy for my taste, these Form 2's are very natural sounding. The bass tones are very present, but also are the high and mid tones. Basically, everything is equal.

The quality is exactly what you'd expect at this price and I plan on having them for a very long time. They are mostly high quality plastic with metal adjusters for the earpieces. The overall feel is very technical and European. Once you set them they stay just how you like them and the attachment point aren't loose at all (thus no movement).

Overall, I an very satisfied with these headphones and would buy them again in a heartbeat.

See the 2 photos I have attached to the product in the main listing.

Each earpiece assembly is attached to the headband assembly with a thin piece of plastic that has two posts that support a relatively great deal of stress in normal use. The piece is only .06 inches thick, and very prone to break. As I write this, mine is the 12th review or comment on this Amazon listing that mentions the problem.

The piece is cheap and could easily be user-replaced but B&O refuses to offer it as a spare part. When I sought support they told me "The part you mention is not available as a sparepart and for this reason cannot be replaced."

They also said "... we would also like to stress that we have not experienced a general problem with the mentioned parts breaking in Form 2."

Apparently they don't read the reviews of their products in Amazon.

So when it breaks, as it clearly does for many users, you either need to do some creative engineering with bracing materials and superglue, or throw them away and buy a better designed product elsewhere.

In fact they apparently agree, because they also told me: "it may be necessary to buy a new set of headphones in replacement for the defective ones you have."
