The anti-Beats by Dre headphones

Bang & Olufsen have been rocking the auditory scene with their headphones since 1979 and CES proved that 40 years of hard work continues to pay off. The BeoPlay H6 headphones look as if they were sculpted from the seat cushions of an Aston Martin — who they also do car stereos for — and that luxury extends to the feel of their supple leather-wrapped aluminum frame that gently cradles your noggin.

Sporting lambskin ear pads, custom 40mm drivers, and a bass-optimizing port, it's the listening experience you'd expect from an A-lister's recording studio, which begs the question: can Dre give you aural pleasure this good?
