BeoPlay H6 and H3 Headphones

BeoPlay H6 and H3 Headphones

The B&O Play line by Bang & Olufsen is the brand’s collection of entry-level product which has just gotten two new members — the BeoPlay H6 and H3 headphones. The H6 is a pair of over-ear headphones made from high quality materials and delivering high quality sound. We recently had the opportunity to give them a try and the best way to describe the sound is “crisp”. They’re great for easy listening, feature exceptional clarity, and still pack a punch when needed. The BeoPlay H6 has a bass port which optimizes the bass performance and the drivers are slightly angled to get the best distance and sound direction into the ears. The headphones also feature memory foam inside the ear pads which adapts for optimal comfort. The BeoPlay H3 are in-ear headphones that are made from aluminum and come in three different colors. It features a custom-designed 10.8 mm driver, Micro Bass Port and 23 ventilation holes for superior sound quality.

Pricing for H3 is set at $249 while the H6 will be $399. Look for both to be available starting July through Bang & Olufsen stores, shopbangolufsen.com, the B&O PLAY online store, Apple retail stores, and Apple Online.
