4 February 2014
When I first got word that Bang & Olufsen would be releasing a new full-size headphone, I could barely contain my excitement. As a long-time B&O customer, I appreciate the unique blend of no-compromise performance, quality and design for which B&O is legendary. My B&O home system, a pair of bookshelf speakers with a sub, has given me countless hours of enjoyment.
Summary: I will keep this ultra short. I spent 3 weeks with these and by the end I had had enough.
At first they 'wow' the user with a lovely full bodied and detailed sound but after a few hours (these had already been listened to for well in excess of 20 hours by a friend) the cracks start to appear.
That lovely bass extension that was so impressive at first begins to tire, that detail in the highs begins to draw attention to the lack of mids.
Summary: I will describe it very simply since I am not English speaker...
H6 was demoed with ipod Touch 5thG Galaxy Note2 ifi audio ican + idac.
I owns some of flagship headphone like grado PS1000, Gs1000, Audeze LCD-2 Beyerdynamic T90 AKG K702 etc
so I think I know what I am talking about.
Out of all the B&o earphone and headphone series (except U70 cuz I never tried) H6 shows the best performance.
I personally don't like B&o Due to over priced products.
Pros: Clarity, Deep, Tight and Fast Audiofile Bass, Natural, Clear Mid, Crystal Clear Highs, Design, Isolation, audiophile quality sound
Cons: Lack of accessory, Bit of sound leaking, Some might fine it bit harsh on treble, not for bass head or bass emphasized lover.
Summary: First Impressions
Bang & Olufsen were established since 1925. I was looking at their stunning products. It was really creative, and a lot of technologies were put in each and every of their products to make sure things are near perfect and simple to use for everyone and at everywhere. All of their products define how great the effort was put into it by Bang & Olufsen's team making a product that everyone can use.
Pros: Comfortable, neutral and natural, folds flat for portable, luxury build quality and design
Cons: Some may find it lacking in bass, lack of warm, and may sound boring to some as well
Summary: This Headphone is a masterpiece.
Design and/or Quality could´t been better!
But all cables transmitting annoying sounds to the side they are connected in. Not perfect!
Special not for a mobile headphone, when you move your head all the time.
The good mobile-thing is that the are lightweight.
The sound is very flat to my ears, and nice for hours and hours of listening!
They sound B&O style "soft" but not "washed".
The bass is precise, but not freaky fat.
Pros: Very "flat" sound, perfekt for classic, and all music. Build quality and comfort in absolute perfection!
Cons: Strong annoying Cable-Sounds, and the original cable with is too short for HiFi-Use.
I made a video review of Bang & Olufsen H6. Most of the important things are covered in the video so I'll keep it brief here.

BUILD & COMFORT
The overall build quality is great. It's sturdy but lightweight. The top part of the headband is made out of leather. The leather is not very smooth but it's very nice. The ear cup is also covered in soft leather. It is very comfortable, because it's light and doesn't squeeze your head too tightly.
Pros: Flat, Neutral, Comfort, Great Looks, Lightweight, Build Quality
Summary: Good: - design, aesthetics, build quality, presentation - good noise isolation - very comfortable Bad: - you pay a premium for the name - quality control issue - poor customer service - (Designed in Denmark,) Made in China I was looking for a replacement for my trusty 12+ years old pair of Grado SR60 and my candidates were: - B&W P5 / P7 - Sennheiser HD 598 / HD 600 / HD 650 I dismissed the P5 / P7 because they were quite uncomfortable to wear compared to the...

Summary: Amazing Headphones with good quality and sound quality above average. Always wanted to buy Bose or the Beats pro, but for this good piece of equipment, never thought about them again. Good to listen at home, and good to listen while travelling or in the street, they look great.
Summary: 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.
Summary: The H6 headphones are really confortable to wear for prolongued periods of time. It is a really important aspect that fits the right way with good sound quality. Their sound is flat not bass boosted so it is possible to hear natular balanced sound similar to some monitor headphones. I have to emphasize that it allows to appreciate enough detail of sound at different frequencies with different instruments.
