Very swanky! Like the bronze ones but wouldn't pay an extra £150 for the paint job!

I was not aware that B&O charged more for any of these, i.e. more than the standard price for brown or black.

They don't, but the blue Pepsi version is being sold off at £150 off retail at the moment, so if you can live with the colours they're an absolute bargain!

I wanted to clarify that B&O doesn't charge 'extra' for any of their headphones.  Or looking at it another way, the 'extra' is already built in.  The blue and the discount is highly unusual, but whatever the case, I'd buy the discount version if they painted it bright orange and purple.  You know, turn the lights down.

Beyer DT1770/T70p, Grado PS1000e, Bose QC35, B&O H6, DragonFly1.2/DragonFly Black/Oppo HA2 DAC/amps, Lehmann Traveler amp.

There was a collaboration

There was a collaboration between B&O and Pepsi to create those blue headphones. The collaboration expired, so B&O cannot sell them through their stores. Hence the reason for discount.

Apologies my comment was related to my situation as I got the Pepsi ones
