Product information

Finished in aluminium and leather, the Bang & Olufsen H6 on-ear headphones stand out with their luxury styling and extreme comfort. Matched twin 40mm drivers supply the sound and are tuned for balanced playback across their range.

Crystal-Clear Acoustics
Custom built 40mm drivers bring you every part of your music’s range with stunning clarity. Expertly tuned and covering a 20-22kHz range, you’ll be free to explore every detail of a track.

Choose The Way You Listen
Connect the cable (included) into the left or the right earpad for complete flexibility

Share Your Tunes
H6 headphones also support daisy chaining that allows a friend to connect and share your listening experience.

Swivel Design
Rotating earpads make for great listening, and comfort.

Premium Composition
Carefully selected high quality materials like leather and aluminium make Beoplay H6 comfortable to wear and bring a sense of everyday luxury. Also, everyday wear and tear merely adds patina (surface sheen), and makes BeoPlay H6 age beautifully.

The softness of the lambskin on the ear pads is the first thing you’ll notice, when you put on BeoPlay H6. When you wear the headphone, the memory foam inside the ear pads adapts ensuring great comfort.

Intuitive Controls
The inline microphone and three button remote make it simple to stay in touch and in control of your music while on the move.

Q & As

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great headphones - JL specification incorrect Great comfortable headphones with brilliant sound quality. Please note if you don't try first. JL specification is incorrect. They are 'over ear' not on-ear. Check B&O website description; H6 Authentic and well-balanced sound experience from elegant over-ear headphone. 30 October 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by They sound great I have had a pair of B&W P5's which I've used nearly every day for a few years. I've worn them out basically and needed a new pair. I was looking at the P7's but fancied a change. After a fair bit of researching I picked these B&O headphones, and to be honest the sound is pretty good. There is a big different in the bass and crispness above the the P5's. Not bassy in the same way the Beats headphones are, these are good sounding cans. And they look great. The negatives... They don't fold up well and the case is a cloth bag, not great when you travel, but for me not a deal breaker. The problem I have is the comfort, I've had them for a couple of days now and the top of my head is getting just a little bit too much pressure (ear pressure is fine, in fact very good). I think I will take them back, maybe it is my head shape? Although I think I have a normal head, The P5's have much more padding on the headband, but I can't go back to those now as the B&O's sound so much better! Arrrh, I hope this review helps somebody. 10 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Superb & uncompromising headphones 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. The sound is definitely the best I have ever heard from headphones, I have Bang and Olufsen speakers at home and the H6's are the closest thing I have heard to loud speakers, the sound is exceedingly full with a clarity of sound and positioning second to none. I would definitely recommend these to anyone looking for premium headphones, as well as the exceptional service Bang and Olufsen provides their customers. 30 June 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love Them ! A little bit of a luxury purchase, although I am not into any of the technicalities behind music production etc I do love and appreciate great crisp and clear sounding music - these are perfect and very comfortable so can be used for prolonged periods. 25 January 2014
