Bang & Olufsen Beoplay H6 Over-Ear Headphones – : Five Stars

I decided against paying extra for bluetooth headphones as my last pair drained the battery on my iphone 6s+, i am also concerned with radiation leakage as they are now saying that phones held to the ear and placed near your body are sending out rays, although bluetooth headphones are not so powerful they still omit radiation. Thus buying these wonderful headphonesi have never spent this much on headphones but how i wish i had bought these before. The sound is so brilliant and clear and the phones are so comfortable to wear. There is no squeaking of the wires (as with a pair of sony wired headphones i bought several years ago)you won’t be disappointed.

This is perfect for mobile use and going cheap now so real value for money. It’s incredibly light, small (for over ear), comfortable, robust, stylish and gorgeously built. Not a million miles off my £750 bayer dynamic t5p. It has a very similar sound signature. I listen to mostly classical music and am very happy with the sound. Be aware that they do not have a flat response. There is boosted base, but it’s not excessive and i like a bit of extra base even for classical music as it’s less fatiguing. A bit of extra base is important for mobile use because the base is the first thing lost to outside noise so a flat response becomes anaemic.

Much more balanced low range as compared to the first generation. High range is very precise as well. Generally, the headphones are very light and comfortable to wear.

Simply the best headphones in the world. Sad to see them go bluetooth only.

The b&o h6 has been on my ‘to buy’ list for over a year. I have done lots of listening tests in store comparing the h6 with the b&w p7 and i almost bought the h6’s several times. But i always got the impression from listening that they were a bit bass light. I’m no bass head but i do appreciate good bass depth and the h6’s were almost there. The p7’s had good bass but the mids seemed muddy by comparison with the h6’s and ultimately wearing them they felt not as comfortable. So when i read that there was a gen 2 h6 i checked out the reviews which suggested that the bass had been improved through better tuning and that they had been optimised for use without a headphone amp. Since they were released there is a lot of debate online as to whether or not these gen 2 versions sound different from the gen 1 versions but ultimately the only way to find out was to try for myself (30 day return policy – thanks amazon)yes, for sure there is an improvement in the sound quality, whether this is as a result of tuning or a change in the impedance i don’t know – in fact i don’t really care. What i do care about is that these sou to my ears much better. The bass is now improved in my opinion without the mids or highs being affected adversely. They sound how i want them to sound.

It’s pure magic, don’t know how else to describe it. I ordered them without having been able to listen to them after trying various other ones and seeing the reviews – it’s every bit as good as other reviewers have noted.

Mark 2’s (which these are) have better bass. No matter with all the stupid phone manufacturers taking the headphone jack out, you can’t beat wire headphones, you will always compromise quality running through bluetooth. Thank goodness i managed to get a mobile with a jack, as it’s becoming a rarity. Had some bose headphones before these, which were good, but these are a better all round sound.

Brilliant headphones for brill price from amazon.

  • A definite improvement over the Gen 1 H6 model.
  • Excellent and great value
  • H6 2nd generation headphones, buy them you won’t be disappointed

They’re excellent sounding headphones. They also look robust and ooze quality. They also isolate quite well. My ears get a bit sweaty though with extended listening. For comparison, i own a pair of kef m500s as well, and i prefer the 2nd gen h6s for vocals, symphonies and other staged perfomances because of their ‘bigger’ sound. I can better perceive the relative positioning of instruments and vocals with the h6s, and get a better sense of presentation. I also love bass, and the bass on the h6s sound deeper to me. I do prefer the m500s for how instruments in general sound though. To me, instruments sound closer and more impactful on the m500s.

Incredible sound & comfort for this price. I wear glasses and have pretty big ears but i can wear this for hours on end without getting annoyed, a first for meone small downside in my opinion: the cable could have been a bit longer. Other than that it’s a perfect product and i would recommend it to everyone.

If you really want to listen to music the way the artist produced it, then these are a must buy, incredible depth of sound you can hear every tiny detail of sound. I really am impressed by these headphones, beats and bose are not a patch on these, i have owned both and won’t be going back, oh and excellent quality, i have a big bonce and these actually fit very comfortably with room to spare 🎧👍👍👍👍👍.

Fantastic headphones for the price, i have a great fondness over the quality of both the aesthetics and the sound produced.

Incredibly comfortable, sounds great, wear it every day on my commute and to the office.

Clean, luxurious sound, superb built and very comfortable.

Great sound totally worth it but sometimes are not really comfortable, especially if you wearing glasses.

I’ve owned plenty and heard lots of types of headphones and earphones from shure to b&w to sony and even beats. These headphones are a must have if you appreciate real quality sound. These just sound so well balanced i would say that these are the best. If you are a basshead you may want to look elsewhere, other manufactures will offer you more bass however these will still deliver the same low frequencies but not overwhelm the rest of the song/s like other manufactures tend to do. They deliver in every single department (bass, mids, treble) without draining any of the rest of the sound. They sound so natural, balanced, detailed and never feel harsh or pushed, right through the sound spectrum. I’ve not even heard them with a dedicated amp but i really don’t think they need them. Ok a bit pricey but i’ll definetly not be needing a pair until these break. An added bonus is the are so comfortable and look great.
