Product Details

Bang & Olfusen BeoPlay H6 Black Headphones, Model 1642001

If one were to imagine the perfect pair of headphones, a product that embraces both form and function, the resultant image would look something like the Bang and Olufsen BeoPlay H6 Headphones. B&O takes the philosophy they've become famous for—that product design and product engineering are intimately connected and each affects the user experience—and runs with it. The B&O H6 Headphones end up being one of the best over ear headphones available today.

Like all B&O products, the dedication to quality craftsmanship is evident in the H6 Headphones before you even listen to them. Materials used throughout are chosen for visual appeal, user comfort and durability. These materials are utilized in a way that the B&O H6, though lightweight at only 230 grams total, are imbued with a feeling of luxury and professional quality. Large circumaural cups are backed by anodized aluminum plates and finished with lambskin ear pads for supreme comfort and noise isolation. The cups rotate and swivel on multiple axes, ensuring a snug fit. A smoothly-dampened, adjustable headband is finished on the inside with a soft, textured fabric pad for a comfortable yet secure fit. Durable, stately cowhide secured with contrast-stitching covers the headband's exterior for a classic appearance that will only improve with wear.

Of course, a comfortable design is only half of the equation in the quest to construct the best headphones available. If they don't sound great, it doesn't matter how comfortable they are. The B&O BeoPlay H6 Headphones leverage Bang and Olufsen's considerable audio expertise into a pair of over ear headphones that will bring joy to the audiophile's ear. B&O designed the H6 Headphones to produce a natural, flat-response audio signal. The antidote to today's bass-heavy cans, music from B&O headphones will sound as close to the master recording as is technically possible. This authentic performance will emphasize a clear, well-supported midrange, while balancing bass and treble to natural levels. Carefully engineered bass ports give the low end some heart, without overwhelming the senses. And the powerful 40mm neodymium-magnet drivers let you turn up the volume without encountering harmful distortion.

Bang & Olufsen complete the package with a few clever details that will win the hearts of tech-savvy listeners who take their music on the go and love to share. The inline remote and mic make the H6 Headphones perfect for use with a smartphone, putting music and call control at your fingertips even when the phone is in your pocket. And every mobile user knows the pain of a pair of great headphones ruined by a broken cord. Bang and Olfusen made the H6 cord not only removable (for easy replacement if it breaks), but also provided ambidextrous cable attachment points. Both right and left headphone cups have an audio-in port, so you can customize the H6 Headphones as you see fit. This redundancy also provides a very neat trick, letting you daisy-chain a second pair of headphones by plugging into the open audio port. It's never been easier to share music with friends than with the B&O BeoPlay H6 Headphones.


  • Design
    BeoPlay H6 is designed by Jakob Wagner and is an around-ear type of headphone, where comfort and great acoustic performance have been central elements in the design. When placing headphones on the ear, it is important that you feel pressure in places where it does not bother you and where you feel the device rests securely and does not fall off. It took a lot of experimenting to find the right spot, as it seems we have very different perceptions of what feels right
  • Sound
    BeoPlay H6 offers a truly natural and authentic sound performance with focus on a clear mid-range with a balanced bass and treble performance. It includes a 40 mm custom-designed driver with a neodymium magnet in a closed headphone design. BeoPlay H6 has a bass port, which optimizes the bass performance, and drivers that are slightly angled to get the best distance and sound direction into the ears. BeoPlay H6 also allows you to share your music with friends by simply linking up multiple headphones to one digital device (iPad, iPhone, etc)
  • Use
    Carefully selected, high quality materials like leather and aluminum make BeoPlay H6 comfortable to wear and will bring you a sense of everyday luxury. Also, every day wear and tear merely adds patina, 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. The head band needs to be durable and age with grace. Therefore, we have chosen cowhide leather, which gains patina and personality when worn
