Sorry for the long review.
I have many sets of headphones, ranging from a few pounds to the famous Sennheiser HD650 currently £319 on Amazon. I have been disappointed over the years with what I have heard . Now I have finally found one set that is great. That is the B&O H6. Other headphones might have a flatter frequency response, better dynamic range etc. The one thing that is important to me is musicality, and that is where the B&O H6 wins. I agree my HD650 phones are technically better, but from a musicality point they lose out. I have been trying to find the flattest frequency response and the closest to the ‘real world sound’ as possible for a long time. This sounds great on paper, but on listening, the emotion, the passion, the feeling of the music has been left behind to produce a sterile flat response which is devoid of that word, emotion. These headphones have emotion and feeling in bucket loads. I have listened to a whole album for the first time in many a year today. I normally skip from track to track to convince myself that my new headphones are better than the last ones I bought. The treble is a bit better here, the bass is a bit better there. With these I hear everything so clear and with feeling, from the lowest lows to the highest highs, it’s difficult to describe in words how good these are. I always thought B&O were over priced and also the sound was not as good as I could get elsewhere for the same money. I am happy to be wrong. Well done B&O.

Heat for the description alone!

I'd love these but can't justify them while my 3x sets of over-ears are still going strong.
Best sounding headphone for anything below £400! Especially when you pair it with a good dedicated DAC + amp and good recodrded albums! Highly recommend!
Another +1. I've got a pair of the blue "pepsi" H6's from years ago and they sound great.
Love these cans, really nice leather. For me they are very comfy but some may find the rounded earpads pressing in to the eartips uncfortable. Amazing clarity and just enough bass to keep me happy, punchy and tightly controlled. The only prob is the acessories are very expensive, replacement earpads cost £50. I know this as my earpads were ruined and i paid £50 at the Bang and Olufsen store.
Are these first or second?

As soon as you click the link it says Gen 2. Didn't really take much effort.

Is not genuine leather is it, should be more durable. Maybe just leather surfaced or faux.
I guess these don't have have noise cancellation like the H8?

i tried the H8 unless you really need wireless the H6 sounds better. And the H9I blows everything out of the water but at a eye watering price.
