For professionals and weekend riders alike, music can play an important role in cycling. From pre-ride warm-ups to century-long excursions, music is a centering force for the mind and spirit on and off the bicycle. B&O Play understands the importance of music in cycling and solidifies its support of the sport with its new collaborative BeoPlay H6 headphones for Rapha. The England-based cycling brand seems to be a perfect match for the Danish audio house: both brands have established themselves as premiere players in their respective industries; they continue to move the bar forward in balancing functionality with style while building loyal user bases that expect nothing less than excellence.

The BeoPlay H6 Rapha edition is no exception. Pulling cues from Rapha’s current lineup of cycling products, the H6 has details borrowed from the brand’s cycling clothes: ear pads are made from African Hair Sheep leather featured in the Rapha GT glove; the headband is made from Rapha’s signature professional team fabric; and the BeoPlay cord is colored in Rapha’s signature pink.

You can find the Rapha edition BeoPlay H6 headphones at Rapha Cycle Club stores and online at rapha.cc and beoplay.com for $429.
