A Splash of Fashion, Colour & Elegance with the Special Edition Beoplay H6

PRESS RELEASE







Today B&O PLAY unveils Graphite Blush, Bronzed Hazel and Blue Stone – 3 exciting new special editions of BeoPlay H6 that are perfectly suited for style conscious urban dwellers.


Graphite Blush pairs a stormy greyish brown with an almost salmon-like red colour, while Bronzed Hazel combines a lush light brown colour with bronzed elegance and last but not least, Blue Stone gives you a cool and pale grey in unison with a glittering light blue.






The special editions are subtle and graceful, perfectly aligned with the B&O PLAY design excellence inherited from Bang & Olufsen, yet they still bring with them an edge that makes them particularly interesting for youthful, design affectionate professionals looking for that something special that stands out.

With today’s introduction, B&O PLAY brings another fashionable dimension to a headphone that has been lauded far and beyond for its outstanding and honest sound reproduction as well as for its timeless aesthetics and choice of premium materials. To present the new fashionable colours, B&O PLAY has teamed up with Uffe Buchard, Creative Director of DANSK magazine, to product a series of fashion images.

“Today’s headphones are just as much fashion accessories as they are products used for music listening and phone conversations,” says Henrik Taudorf Lorensen, VP of B&O PLAY and continues “and with the special editions of BeoPlay H6 introduced today, we yet again emphasise the importance of both style AND substance, not either/or when it comes to strong design and high performance.”

ABOUT BEOPLAY H6

BeoPlay H6 boasts a premium sound, honest and clean in its appearance and designed to give you music the way the artists intended it – without any tweaks or over-emphasized bass. The headphones are wrapped in the finest cowhide leather and lambskin, both durable and exclusive materials that can withstand the wear and tear of everyday use – and at the same time materials that age with beauty.

BeoPlay H6 features a daisy-chain functionality* that lets you share the music – and the ability to change the cord from the left to right ear pad depending on your preference. There’s an inline remote and microphone too that let you control your devices directly from the cord. The headphone weighs in at a modest 230g, which makes it an ideal travel companion – and lightens the load on your head when used for longer periods of time.
