Nice review!
 
When I picked these up in Noisy Motel the other day I had no idea what they were, but they looked flashy and when I tried them I was blown away as well. But the price in Australia is $500 which makes it not that great value.

Thank you for your compliment! xD

This is actually my second time demoing it. The first time was at a noisy environment paired with my E07K with around 2dB bass boost on my iPhone app's EQ. It was too bassy to my ears. The second time was at Bang & Olufsen's store at Singapore. Quite environment, perfect for listening test to be done but this time, I only have my iPhone 4 with me but still sound surprisingly good and pretty easy to drive (45% of max volume) xD

At Singapore, it is at SGD 650

Fantastic review, 
Glad someone can put into words my thoughts on these headphones. 
My wife bought the Beoplay H6 in green, solely based on look alone ( what can I say ? ^^) and because they were closed. I was amazed how great they sounded. 
Listening to Foobar and Accudio on my iphone,  with some bass emphasis on the equalizer , the H6's sounded awesome, I never thought they were lacking in bass at all. In fact, the bass just kicked arse. I'm proud to call them mine now ( kidding ? ).

     Thanks a lot, Mister Chang. Now you're really making me want to buy those. Nah, I'm just kidding -- I couldn't buy those at the time, though I could demo them again if I could...hopefully.
 
     They're the flattest-sounding fashion-forward headphones I've ever seen, and they'd make for the ultimate audiophile portable. Lacking in bass? Well to be honest, I'm a basshead, and I don't think it lacked anything at all. Bass went down deep, and it did what it needed to. Oh yeah, and that's without any EQ. I loved the very refined sound signature...it felt really luxurious. I just wish I could get one of these, because they'll most definitely the last headphones I'll ever buy.
 
     H6, I'm coming for you...and once I have you, Head-Fi will be nothing but a distant memory. You will be my cure....*evil laugh*

Not sure if it's noted in the review, but it should be noted that the earpads diameter is a bit small.

The headphone is on-ear for people with bigger ears instead of over-ear if you have smaller ears.

Arguably one of the best closed headphones I've heard in a very long time. The only thing I think can give them a run for their money—within the price point—would be the NAD Viso HP50. My son purchased these when they first came out. He is on these forums as 4umf. At the time of the purchase, he had in his possession a pair of a AKG Q 701s, the Bowers & Wilkins P5s, and a pair of Phillips Fidelio L1s. Of course, I had to purchase both the Phillips Fidelio L1 and the AKG's from him so that he could "afford" this H6 purchase, but...hey, I'll take a kid with an audiophile vice over any other vice, any day of the week!

Despite the fact that I was well aware that the H6 was going to be a little bass-light by comparison to the bottom heavy L1sand the P5s, I knew he was going to love them. There's something particularly telling about the resolve of a headphone when it is capable of the accuracy, dynamics and speed of the BeoPlay H6s. Having sold high-end audio equipment in New York City when I was a teenager, and having been an owner of Bang & Olufsen's Form 2headphones I knew what he was in for.

So, while they do prove to be a little bass shy for his tastes, he was able to compensate for that in this way. He sold me (yes Dad's a sucker and an enabler) his ALO The National solid-state amplifier, and upgraded to the ALO Rx Mk3-B+. The latter has one of the most perfectly implemented bass boost adjustments on any amplifier—that is portable. It provides just the right amount of bass boost without bludgeoning the sound signature of the BeoPlay H6 headphones. And while the purest in me simply cringes at the idea of using the bass boost or an EQ of any kind, I have to say it's very well executed and makes for perfect pairing.

Meanwhile, Dad (me) is now buying the NAD Viso HP50s and preparing for a head-to-head showdown when he gets back from college for the summer. }:wink:

I like these headphones, especially with a warmer source. 
 
What's surprising it to find such a sleek slim, light built headphone throw out a very decent sound

Great review! I just got these and I agree on pretty much all points. Also when I tried these with my iPhone 5S I was surprised to find that they sounded quite a bit better than the when driven from an older model in the Apple Store. Is this just me/something wrong in the Apple Store or do later models drive headphones better? Anyway while I do love bass I did not find these headphones lacking in bass. When I first tried it in the Apple Store I though I found it lacking a little "punch" in some tracks but I don't know if it was me just falling in love with the balanced sound but there is a deep bass that is quite detailed, but just not emphasized.
