Bang & Olufsen Beoplay H6 Over-Ear Headphones – Natural : High Quality sound

Wow, what a superb sound from these, only just got them plugged into my iphone and got to say that everything is really impressive from the build to the sound.

Very happy with the purchase.

Yep, that’s what i was looking for. Very happy with this purchase.

Bought with my own cash money. I’ve had a love hate relationship with b&o of late and after an underwhelming experience with the awful wireless h8 (also reviewed) i was beginning to see the validity of the style over substance criticisms that are constantly hurled at this brand. This headphone has thankfully restored my faith in them as a bona fide headphone maker. Having owned and loved the original h6 (in a couple of different colour iterations) i felt that b&o were on to a winner with their first generation. What i didn’t like was the price (it used to be £329) but then they released the ugly pepsi blue version for £150 and i (like many others) was soldamped it was awesome for a lightweight portable can but could only be driven to adequate levels from an iphone. Couple this with the aforementioned price for the non-pepsi versions and its lean (i. Neutral-ish) bass i felt that for a portable can it was just a few notches below true audio greatness. Thankfully everything – and i mean everything – that was ‘wrong’ with the first generation has been addressed. Efficiency has been updated and as such volume levels from an iphone 6s are much improved.

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.

Brilliant sound and good volume very happy.

Good headphones with very nice sound quality. If anything to complain about then i wish it would have more noise cancelling capability, since i had to turn it more up in the airplane just to not hear the engines. Other than that good headphones in terms of sound and looks. The buildquality is also very good.

Very comfortable to wear and to listen.

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

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.

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.

Came as replacement of two bose products – quite 15 and quite 25. Both had problems, different problems. On model 15 leather wear off extremely fast (leather in the middle, which is above the head) – for less than an year. Problem with model 25 – left side stop working just after 2 years ( one month after warranty). So totally disappointed by bose. I have another 2 products by b&o – headphones h5 and beolit 15. Best sound and amazing quality of finishing, excellent materials.

It sounds better if you turn off the eq on iphone. Memory foam cushion pads feels great on ear. Only odd down side is that the mic doesn’t have noise cancelling feature – a person you are on the phone with hears all the noise around you. More than your speaking voice. Especially, noisy station announcements. Bottomline: high quality product – sound superb – a steal at this price.

These are quite simply the best pair of headphones i have ever owned. I also have the beats solo hd and the vmoda xs but these do not even come close. The sound quality is quite simply amazing. They are extremely comfortable and lightweight for an over ear headphone. The build quality is amazing. If you are considering buying these then you will not be dissappointed.

More reliable than wireless.

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.

Received my b&o headphone as i expected it would be.

Bang & Olufsen Beoplay H6 Over-Ear Headphones – Natural

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 🎧👍👍👍👍👍.

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.

These headphones have so much potential, the look is stylish, the brand is quality, the build is solid, and my word, the sound is amazingi don’t hate any part of the sound, actually i like a lot the lows and mids. The lows are punchy and can be very powerful in some musics but just about the right amount and not overwhelming or muddy the sound. The mids are clear and flat, vocals are well presented and beautiful. The highs are very well controlled, there is hardly any music in my pop centric collection that pushes the highs to any uncomfortable stage. However to me the highs a bit too well controlled as i prefer very bright and forward highs, to some extent other people may think a bit too sharp/thin. Sound stage is brilliant and imaging is decent for closed back headphones. Overall, very very very capable headphones that desire big 5 stars despite the higher than normal but acceptable price. However, they don’t fit well to my ears. I have bigger than average but still within normal size ears. My ears confirm to oval shape earpads a lot batter than to these circular shape.

Got these during the amazon prime day offers so less than half list price. I’d pay the full price in a heartbeat if i needed to replace them though. Firstly, headphone choice is very personal and my judgement are subjective. I can though compare with other well known brands/models. I’ve a fair collection of cans myself and experience many more during my work. The h6 2nd gen are a closed back design but with a convincing open back sound. Namely very translucent and revealing. The sound can be characterised as dynamic, detailed and wonderfully musical. Bass is tight and proportional. Everything is perfectly timed and the stereo image is crystal clear.

Best headphones i have ever had. Best £200 i have ever spent.

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

I have several sets of headphones, bose, sony, pioneer, however i have to say the quality and detail of the sound is stunning, beautifully balanced and chrystal clear. Just bought a second pair for my son as he is totally amazed at the clarity of the sound stage they produce. They are well made and comfortable and its worth getting a case to look after them. It wouldnt have hurt b and o to have included one at this price which is my only complaint.

First can i state i am by no means an audiophile, i do like a good sound though. Also this review is for the bang and olufsen beoplay h6. My first foray into ‘proper’ headphones were beats solo 2s. They were decent enough but heavy on the bass end and physically a little sore on the ears after a while. Anyway, after the third replacement i gave up and done a little research before opting for these b&o cans. I have to say in comparison to the beats they are way lighter physically which makes them much more user friendly and comfortable. They are also over ear as opposed to on ear and i can report i wear them for hours without any fatigue or pressure pains. The sound is less bass heavy than the beats i had and in my opinion make for a more pleasing sound reproduction. Mids and trebles are spot on with just enough bass to keep it rocking. I listen to many genres and am satisfied overall and i have found they have ‘matured’ from first purchased. They are also pleasing on the eye. . I have only had them a few weeks, but will update this post accordingly. I would definitely recommend these especially if you can get them on a deal.

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.

I must say, after a lot of time consuming research and consideration of various models from different brands: these headphones are magnificent. They have an impressive clarity throughout their whole, considerably wide range. At the same time, the bass is still excellent for electronic music. Not someone, who usually reviews products on amazon but this one was a must – sublime work by b&o, didn’t fail to impress me once again.

Very good and comfy headphones.

Appreciation of the quality of sound reproduction, and headphones, is very much an individual thing. Personally, i do not like a clinical sound, but prefer an element of analogue warmth. The h6 treads a very fine line providing that element of warmth combined with even handedness, clarity, and musicality. The h6 is thoroughly recommended.

Nicely packaged, look great and brilliant sound quality.

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

I do love thesei picked up a pair coming from a pair of audio technica’s msr7 and these live up very good to them. Very clean analytical sound. They fit very nicely on my head. The only problem is after a couple of hours, my ears do get very warm and it can dig into my head at the top. Other than that they are brilliant. You can pick up a cheap amp or dac if you wanted too, i used an oppo ha2se and these improved them a tad bit.

Fantastic sound and materials. There is no other headphone like this. But there is one problem: it’s not possible to use a 3. 5 mm ‘ugreen’ jack to jack cable, because the diameter of the ‘ugreen’ jack is much bigger, than the original b&o cable jack. Another thing, there is no bag included. However i would buy it again.

I’m a life long b&o fan anyway but these are amazing; amazing sound quality, well made, cool design, and durable.
