Not really, a pair of Grado SR80i's will sound better.

That's such a non-sensical statement. That's a very good price for B&O H6, considering it retails at £329. I personally didn't like the Grados at all.

I would not necessarily agree with the sound quality comment, they do have a different presentation but I wouldn't say they have better sound quality. The grados are also no good if you want to listen to your music anywhere that isn't quiet or on your own. The build quality and comfort on the grados are also not great. £80 more doesn't seem a huge amount more for the above bonuses to me.

I agree grados environment usage limitations need to be considered, but having tried a friends pair of these plus similar offerings from b&w, they are just overpriced nice feeling and looking headphones. Please enlighten me to any B&O product that is worth its RRP for its sound or picture performance.

I agree, they are very different products. I do like the grado sound though.

I still can't decide what to do with headphones!   :wall:  I prefer on the ear ones though, so think I will pass, but tempted though.   Smile

No shit! Gel you have a subwoofer that cost more than my whole signature, can't you just be happy with what you've got?

Yep, good advice.   :).  I just can't make up my mind with headphones though, I got a pair from Tesco for £25 down from £60 and they hurt my head - not soft enough, now I know I will buy a pair but what I am not sure.  Best I avoid spending over £100 though.  I would like to find a bargain from somewhere though.  That would be sweet.   :grin:

While on holiday and home use.  I was thinking about the Philips M1 at £105?
