Bang & Olufsen has updated its BeoPlay H6 headphones range, with a new pair of agave green cans debut in the UK.

With the Bang & Olufsen BeoPlay H6 headphones having originally launched back in April, the new forest green hue joins more traditional black and natural colour schemes on sale.

Targetting fashion-forward shoppers, Bang & Olufsen has announced the newly hued BeoPlay H6 headphones alongside a similarly coloured tanned leather headphone bag. Far from your standard accessory, the carry case, designed by leather specialist Graae Copenhagen, will set wannabe owners back £129 euros.

BeoPlay H6 Features

Weighing just 230g and measuring 197 x 194 x 40mm, the BeoPlay H6 headphones s were designed by Jakob Wagner to be light enough to wear for long periods of time. They have a luxury cowhide leather and lambskin finish.

As well as a beautiful aesthetic, the audio providers have been developed to produce clean sound - without tweaks or overemphasised bass - playing tracks on a 20-22.000 Hz frequency. It has a daisy-chain functionality for track sharing.

The H6's 1.2m cord can be moved from left to right ear depending on preference and can be used to control the device via an inline remote and microphone.

BeoPlay H6 Agave Green Edition Headphones Price and Availability

Arriving in Bang & Olufsen stores, selected department stores and on the B&O Play online store this month, the BeoPlay H6 Agave Green Edition will cost £329.

My main issue with the H6 after spending 1 hour listening with those cans is that the bass is too neutral while mid and treble are excellent. How did I come about to say this ? Well, if you listen to Mahler Symphony No.2 where the intro is with a vibrant attack with the cellos you just don't get any depth or profound feel ( and I don't mean to wish to hear a Boosting Bass mode which I detest) or listening to Lars Danielsson on bass in a jazz concert; he's almost absent I also felt the same when listening to villa-Lobos' Bachianis Brasileiris . I beleive it's a major flaw in such a fine aesthetic pair of cans. Please convince me otherwise. In the meantime I'll stick to Grado's SR325ie ( even SR225 does a good job). This is sad.
