I like my Grado headphones but I think this is what others see when I have them on & tell me too - Grrrrr

RE: B&O H6 for £179!!

I have ordered a pair, have need some new headphones since i lost my klipsich x10. I don't mind the blue and I think I could sell them on if I don't get on with them. Will post back when I have had a good listen.

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.

Sorry missed this. I have no experience with B&O products so cannot comment on their sound v rrp, they do seem expensive. I have not suggested these headphones are worth the rrp, my point of the post is that they are being sold at half the rrp and at that price I think they should be on people's short list.
Granted I have only had a very short listen to these phones but for all the pros I have highlighted above against the grados I don't think an extra £80 over the grados you mention is massively overpriced.
