VERDICT
Clearly above average. Only a couple of issues keep this from being best in class.

based on the following sites

PROS

  • You can expect top-notch audio performance for a good price.
  • The unit is lightweight and compact. The array of accessories delivers a range of fits for different ear sizes.
  • The magnetic ends of the headphones click together, which prevents the cord from tangling.

CONS

  • Relative to other headphone makers' earpieces, the NuForce BE6 buds are thicker, so the fit may not work for teensy ears.
  • In some reviewers' tests, the battery lasted a little over five hours. Optoma claims a battery life of up to six hours.
  • The NuForce BE6 takes about two hours to recharge.
If you’re looking for workout-oriented wireless headphones with a splash of elegance, the lightweight NuForce BE6 is a strong contender. Available in either gold or gray, the aluminum unit is splash proof and dirt repellent. Its large 10 mm driver promises to deliver distortion-free sound as you rock out in the gym. The BE6 includes four pairs of silicone earbuds and two sets of sport foam buds, which up your odds of a non-slip fit. The accessory bundle also includes an optional pair of earhooks to help anchor the headphones in place. The remote control lets you manage your tunes and interact with Siri and Google Now.

The bass presence, while not exactly booming, is right where it should be and doesn't step on the other frequencies. Mids and highs are crisp and show off the BE6's knack for highlighting all the little nuances in your music.

They have good detail and separation, relatively accurate highs and more bass than the Plantronics BackBeat Go, though people looking for thundering bass should look elsewhere…but [they] are the best sounding in-ear Bluetooth headphones I have listened to yet.

So they feel great, they look stunning, and most importantly, they sound absolutely beautiful for that price, but nothing is that perfect. You’re right. They’re not, but that’s not to say there are too many complaints.

I found the combination of shortened bud (custom designed with wider flare for optimum sound projection) and thick nozzle meant that I couldn't really push the earphones down into the ear canal...This inevitably resulted in the BE6 earphones falling out mid-jog.

The drivers use a combination of magnesium alloy, titanium and brass to ensure minimal distortion, and in my experience, that held true. Despite being wireless, they can push out very high volume levels without cracking up.
