Danish Bang & Olufsen is world renowned for its distinctive range of quality audio, picture and multimedia products since 1925.
Their new BeoPlay headphones, the H3 and H6, are designed in collaboration with Danish industrial designer Jakob Wagner, involving extensive studies in the shape and curves of the human ear. While we didn’t get to try them out yet, we bet they sound pretty good considering B&O’s reputation.
They didn’t compromise on materials and style. Made from anodized aluminum, the H3 and H6 feel both lightweight and rugged, and are accented by solid cowhide leather on the earcups and headband. Simple sophistication, and a luxurious treat for your ears!
The BeoPlay H6 headphones are a flexible pair of over-ear cans with 40mm drivers with neodymium magnets and an internal bass port, with the focus on a clear midrange and balanced bass and treble sound. The H6 weighs 230g and also boasts anodized aluminium on the adjustable slider arm and cover plate, with memory foam in the cans to adapt to the shape of your head, like a memory foam mattress for your ears.The B&O H6 cans have an input on both sides, with the option to daisy chain other phones or MP3 players into the headphones. Also, the cans are covered in solid cowhide leather from New Zealand. The H6 is available in black or in natural leather.
The H3 and H6 will respectively cost €249 and €399 when they hit some retail stores in May. Expect similar pricing for North America.
