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 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: 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.
Pros: Flat, Neutral, Comfort, Great Looks, Lightweight, Build Quality
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.
Summary: 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...
