I personally do not believe break in (i do agreed it changes some distortion rates and etc but i cant tell difference at least for me lol) but I do agree sound will change in time due to earpad adjustment on ur earshape.

I assume woo7 will be good matching however I have no idea about h6's impedance characteristics so...I cannot guarantee...also I am not sure about woo7's output impedance as well. So far woo7 was the best with hd800 in my opinion

Hey guys, 

 

went and tried the H6 at the B&O store near me today. I was very impressed. I'll post some quick impressions when I sit down at my pc, but in Australia, they are $499.

But I will say this: Even in my quick listen, the FORM 2 and the A8 units are an absolute "No comparison". The H6 has got them both covered by a long, long mile - I'm putting the H6 into D5000 territory.

After 100 hours I can say they do smooth out a little.  great fitting, great sounding set of cans.

post #186 of 348

I'm.. Sorry, I have to disagree with a few of the impressions made in this thread.

 

Before I do, can I just ask - are people really upset about the price tag? The leather is beautiful and soft on the pads, and has (sheepskin?) leather on the headband, and majority of the headphone is made from aluminium.

 

The cable can be plugged in either side - and you can actually daisy chain the headphone into ANY OTHER headphones that will accept a regular headphone jack. They don't have to be B&O. 

 

The entry point of the cable is at a great looking angle, and is very solid once it's in.

 

These points alone, make the price tag seem to make sense.

 

On top of that, I'm not sure where these "V-shaped" signature impressions are coming from. I found them incredibly balanced, with a beyond-huge soundstage. 

 

To compare to the D5000:

Obviously much less bass than the Denon, but it was also much more linear - No "bumps" or sticking out frequencies. It still registered the mid and sub-bass nicely. 

It terms of comfort - I actually think they are both pretty similar. The H6 didn't clamp too hard, and the leather pads were incredibly comfortable. 

The build quality of the H6 shatters the D5000 - and mind you, the D5000 at the time of me writing this comment costs $850, where as the H6 is $499.

I'll be honest with you, I do own the Form 2, and the A8 units. After a few years, and a lot more experience with audio gear, I'm not impressed with them. I wasn't expecting much going into the store today to try the H6, so I'm pretty surprised now that I'm tempted to pull the trigger on these.

Also - Three year warranty. Not bad at all.

Hi Folks,

 

i am from Munich, Germany and i am searching for a good locking an first good sounding Headphone for my iPhone 5.

I tried a lot of them such as

Parrot Zik

Logitech UE 9000

KEF M500

Focal Spirit One

Sennheiser Momentum On Ear and

Sennheiser Momentum Over Ear

 

First I want to have a Bluetooth-Headphone and the Zik soundet very well to me, BUT it was definitely to heavy. My right Ear hurts and that is not what i want.

Dto. the Logitech, much to heavy but also very well sounded.

Then i switcht to the Cable-Headphones...

The KEF was just terrible, i never heard such a bad Sound .

The Focal was made for a Childrens Head i think, but not for an adult Head...

My favorite till now was the Sennheiser Over Ear. It Looks very well and the Sound is about most of you write here .

 

 

BUT then I`ve seen on the Internet the B&O H6!!!

 

I tried them here in Munich at an B&O-Dealer  and was also very impressed.

Good looking, verry good materials and a very good handling...

 

I tried to get  a better Price but my Dealer says NO:

 

I phoned 3 other B&O-Dealers in Munich and one of them will make a discout of 10 %

So I will pay 399 EUR -10 % is 359 EUR  is about 482 USD

 

I think thats ok and i think i will buy them at the weekend..

 

I think all around the world it is possible to deal about the Price cause the Headphones are expencive and it  will be difficult for B&O  to place these headphones at this price in the market ...

 

so long

 

PS. sorry about my english..

 

Andi

Keep in mind that these h6 cans benefit a lot by using a decent amp. Bass is more extended and better sound staging for sure. No slouch on my galaxy s4 either.

Hey - can I ask which dealer said NO and which one gave you the 10% ?

post #191 of 348

You are working for B&O, right?

 

 Oh, I am wrong. The 10 % was  for another Headphone, not for the H6

In this case - NO.... it will soon be October in Munich beerchug.gif

post #193 of 348

 i ordered the H6 now.

by the way: Unfortunately, no case is at the high price there.
Does anyone have a suggestion for a reasonable case???

Someone posted something about this one:

 

http://www.amazon.co.uk/GRADO-HEADPHONE-CARRY-CASE/dp/B0033AX21S

 

I think this is a little bit to high for the H6

I passed by another Apple store yesterday and  thought I'd give the H6 another free listen. I made sure the iPod was EQ'd at flat....and they sounded wowzers. I was sorry I returned them......must do something to rectify that evil_smiley.gif

What made you return them?
