BeoPlay H6 - Details
Bang & Olufsen Sound
Hand-tuned by Bang & Olufsen sound engineers, BeoPlay H6 offers a truly natural and authentic sound performance with focus on a clear midrange with a balanced bass and treble performance.
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 headphones, the memory foam inside the ear pads adapts ensuring great comfort.
Built to Last
The primary components are made of anodized high-grade aluminum, so BeoPlay H6 is surprisingly light as well as robust and scratch resistant. Everyday wear merely adds patina to the leather, and makes your headphones age beautifully.
Stylish and Social
Sharing is caring. BeoPlay H6 comes with two line-in holes which means that sharing your music is easy via the daisy chain feature. Just plug a friend’s headphones into the empty slot and enjoy your music – together.

After being impressed with the B&O H3 (review here: http://amzn.to/1cfbsOR), I decided to bite the bullet and pick up the H6 as well. I've had a chance to listen to them for about 4 months and recently purchased a Fiio E07K DAC to complement. This will be a lengthy review, but it should hopefully be worth the read.
To preface, I am a musician (play piano, clarinet, saxophone and guitar) and have been blessed with the gift of perfect pitch, so I take my audio equipment purchases very, VERY seriously. I have previously owned B&O A8/Earphones, Bowers and Wilkins C5s and Beyerdynamic DT990s. I currently have a set of A8s as well as the aforementioned H3, and was looking for an over-ear headphone to complement the set. I considered the H6, Sennheiser Momentum, Bowers and Wilkins P5 and P7 and VModa M100. I'll break down the review into a few categories for simplicity.
---COMFORT AND FIT---
Unparalleled. Truly that is the only word to describe the fit of these headphones. I wear glasses often, and typically this is an issue with the fit of over-ear headphones. The clamping force is very, very light, but is more than sufficient to keep them in place. The H6 is easy to wear for several hours, and it is also very light in weight. The Momentum has a greater clamping force that is noticeable, but still comfortable. I found myself unable to comfortably wear either the B&W P5 or the VModa M100 for more than 2 hours at a time with glasses due to the clamping force. The P7 has even more clamping force than the P5 due to its over-ear design, and I constantly have to adjust them to find a good fit, which is quite an annoyance.Read more ›
Next, I tried the B&O BeoPlay H6s. There are many positives about these headphones. First, the design is "typical B&O," that is, minimalist, high quality, and visually appealing. They are also very lightweight and comfortable to wear for extended periods. I am not an audio expert and certainly didn't do any quantitative measurements, but I can attest to the H6s being very neutral in sound. In fact, I can't recall ever experiencing headphones more neutral. It is worth noting that we live in a world that often associates thumping bass with high quality sound reproduction. If that's your preference, these are NOT the headphones for you. Don't get me wrong, the H6s reproduce very low frequency bass notes (like in Genesis's Firth of Fifth or in Don't Let it Bring You Down by Annie Lennox) with amazing clarity. I just wouldn't recommend these for Hip Hop or to people who set the bass on their amplifiers at "+5".
My only objection to the H6s is their volume level is not quite as loud as I normally would expect. I found myself setting my iPod/Mac at near full volume. This is, no doubt, due to the impedance rating of the headphones. For this reason, I opted to go with the newly-released Bowers & Wilkins P7s.Read more ›
BUT...! There is a severe problem with the BeoplayH6, however, and here it is: the H6cord cord is too short and is Apple exclusive, leaving all other users in the lurch. You need to purchase a third-party adapter to have this magnificent headphone work on other type of equipment... I grant you the solution is a cheap one, but at the price these beauties are going for you shouldn't need to go to this trouble. The makers should supply an alternate cable that is universally compatible.
This being said: give it a good 40 to 50 hour burn-in time. Once it falls into its' groove, it is without reserve, one of the best-sounding pair of cans your hard-earned money can buy. Doesn't take much juice to power, either. You can run it straight off a portable music device or, for a tad more added "oomph!", via a headphone amplifier or amplifier.
I'm giving it a reluctant 3 stars - it would have been 5+ if not for the cable.
The design and the materials are non matched in my opinion to many of the shinny rapper brands. They look professional, fit perfectly as well as sound great.
These are flat studio sound headphones that will not give heavy base lovers the feeling of having 2 subs on their head. I use these to listen from classical to trance to Buddhism mantras and death-core metal. All music sounds amazing, you can hear every detail and best of all, i just flew from US to Germany, had them on for 16 hours without any ear pain. They do block a large amount of outside noise very similarly to my HD-280 pros.

Used these for about a year. Started it out good. Losing ability to accept increased gain now. Most youtube vids need to be on ear bleeding max, but are far from damaging hearing.Published 3 months ago by Jon A. Mccarty
