  • Due to lack of noise cancelation Beoplay E6 headphone are not suitable for loud environments i.e. commuting

  • Below average battery life of 5 hours compared to other wireless in-ear headphones
  • The bass and treble are good, as long as you get a good fit, otherwise they sound thinner than they should
  • There is significant latency when watching movies or playing games due to the lack of support for high-quality codecs such as aptX, aptX HD or LDAC (AAC audio codec only)
