Sounds for the road

Robust but elegant over-ear headphones with an ergonomic design that adjusts to fit both head and neck perfectly for optimal comfort and sound – ideal for travelling or warming up on a stationary trainer. The ear pads are made from African Hair Sheep leather – as used for the Rapha GT Gloves – a beautifully comfortable, sweat resistant and breathable material.

The headphones have beautifully balanced acoustic performance designed by globally acclaimed Bang & Olufsen engineers, to help you enjoy the details and definition of every track. The sound is well balanced with a naturally rich bass. Bang & Olufsen are award-winning sound and audio engineers, creating industry-leading designs with a distinctive, minimal aesthetic.

The inline remote/microphone lets you control your devices directly from the cord, which is finished with signature Rapha pink.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clarity If you like the heavy bass sounding 'Beats' type of headphones, then these are probably not for you. If you like clarity in your music with a balanced bass sound, then you need to give these headphones serious consideration. The build quality is excellent, with the leather earpads comfortably enclosing your ears, which do a great job of blocking out external noise. Your ears do get slightly warm, but you will find that with over ear headphones. B & O do other colour schemes for the H6's, however the Rapha collaboration, is the best colour scheme. The only disappointing feature is the bag, which is nice, but for this type of headphone, B & O should supply them with a semi rigid case. In summary, excellent build quality, excellent styling and more importantly with excellent sound.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Audiophile Sound with Rapha Style I was planning on buying a pair of the B&O H6 headphones due to the stellar reviews found on many websites. Once I saw that Rapha had a special edition I decided to get this version. Hooked up to a headphone pre-amp and listening from vinyl to lossless digital files, I am now in absolute love. These are really clean sounding headphones and with music that has a nice high dynamic range and good quality, they just let you experience sound as it should be. The material changes on the ear cups and head piece to Rapha materials are stylish and very comfortable. I love the Rapha pink accents as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from B&O and Rapha for an awesome product I spend a lot of hours on airplanes and the Rapha B&O headphones are my best companion during this time. They remain comfortable even on intercontinental flights and allows you to forget being on a plan. Great quality and sound and the best cord ever.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Headphones They’re classy headphones for those who want good sound quality on the go. Padding is is good and they are not super light so you will know you have them on. They have a pretty solid grip on your head. They get better with use. I think they should come in a hard shell case rather than a bag. A wireless version would get them 5 stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks & sound I bought these last summer are fantastic. Since I really like the simple looks and aesthetic of the Rapha brand, I love the look, the materials and colour choices. When you compare this model to the other versions available, I feel that this gives the best bang-for-your-buck. I've used them on a flight overseas and they sufficiently blocked out the noise (too bad they couldn't do anything about the annoying kid kicking my seat for 3 hours). The only downside is the length of the cable. Another 3-6" would've been great and the remote is a little to high on the cord (sure; I could flip the cord ends around but I don't want to). I bought a good quality 3.5mm male/female 10' cord so I could use these comfortably on my media Centre and they work great. The sound is nuanced and if you look online you will find many glowing audiophile reviews on the H6. Fit is great though a little annoying during long listening sessions when I'm wearing glasses (like every headphone is).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent clarity I bought these headphones a couple of weeks ago and haven't put them down since. If you like your music numbed with a lot of base don't buy. However if you prefer sublime clarity and like to hear every note clearly give these a try. I will listen to music across the the musical spectrum but my favoured genres are prog rock and classical which these b&o more than satisfy. Extremely comfortable and light, not mention they look fab. Buy if you are serious about your music. And they are a great price from Rapha who themselves exude quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really stylish design I bought the headphone 2 weeks ago and I have to sing praises for the prompt delivery. It only took 5 days from dispatch to arriving in China. The design of this B&O headphone is really cool and full of Rapha personality. The bass isn’t as good as its Bose competitors but the high pitch is really a pleasure to the ears. Highly recommended for those who want some nice music on the boring and tedious turbo trainer workouts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Expensive but worth it. I was tired of ear buds falling out during spin classes and ergo sessions and really wanted a set of headphones that I could use when training. These are the real deal. Brilliant sound and no drama with sweat. Awesome gear as all Rapha stuff is.

Hi, B&O recently released generation 2 of the H6 headphones. Am I correct to assume that these are the 1st generation? Thanks

Are the headphones noise cancelling? I assume they're not as I would expect it to say if they were... unless I've just been dazzled by the good looks and haven't read the description properly.

Asked by: Moray
Hi, the B&O H6 headphones are not noise cancelling.

The B&o version of these comes with 2 cables and a plane adapter, mine came with just 1 cable, is this normal?

Asked by: Markhphoto
Hi. The B&O headphones do only have one inline cable and one plane adapter.

How does the padding hold up to the ridiculous amounts of sweat that trainer sessions produce?  This is the one issue that gives me pause about these...

Asked by: JoeCB3
The padding and covering material has been carefully selected and tested to ensure that sweat retention is very minimal. In fact I was one of the test riders for these and confirm that after a heavy turbo session they do not become soaked with sweat.
