as far as audio performance goes, all B&O has to say is each headphone has unique sound curves which will offer “a clean and powerful sound that reveals all the details in the music at any given volume level.” on the looks department, both the H3 and H6 are crafted of anodized high purity aluminum which is both lightweight and at the same time, durable and robust. additionally, the BeoPlay H6 headphones feature authentic cowhide leather hailed from New Zealand and each of this leather is put through a tanning process that gives it the rich, warm tone. available from May 2013 with a sticker of €249 (around US$336) for the BeoPlay H3 In-Ear headphones and €399 (approximately US$522) for the BeoPlay H6 Over-Ear headphones. hit the jump for a gallery of images for your admiration.
