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. 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: These BeoPlay headphones really are a bargain at sub £200 for the limited editions. They are well built, and really do reproduce a beautifully detailed and very authentic sound across a lovely open sound stage; listening to most albums actually sounded like being in a large recording studio listening to the band playing live!
