Bang & Olufsen BeoPlay H6

Between New Zealand cowhide leather and anodized aluminum employed in its frame, slider arms and cover plates, Bang & Olufsen’s BeoPlay H6 should age a little more gracefully than that pair of Beats you’ve got lying around. Packing 40mm custom neodymium-driven speakers plus an internal bass port, all tuned and angled to obsessive perfection, the H6 delivers on sound quality – and convenience, too, thanks to niceties such as a remote with mic and volume control, plus a 3.5mm auxiliary out on the other ‘phone for daisy-chaining with friends.
