Philips SHL5605 Downtown CitiScape On-Ear Headphones with Mic/Remote 4.7 5 6 6
Fantastic headphones! These stylish Philips CitiScape Downtown headphones really are a fantastic product with a price to match. They feel very comfortable and look great - the denim finish is very unique & means the headphones are equally suitable for day-to-day wear or using for a run. In terms of sound, they are for the money by far the best I have owned - equally adept at transferring classical & pop to handling heavy reggae bass. I use them frequently with my iphone, which makes the microphone very useful for switching to calls, and the anti-tangle cable is a standout feature. In summary, this is a quality product which looks great and delivers on sound, functionality and price. Highly recommended. 01 July 2014
Great Value for Money Headphones The Phillips down town head phones are light, robust and extremely comfortable to wear. I found that the foam cushions for the earpiece were much more effective than other brands I have used and they provided lots of comfort even while wearing over long periods of time. In addition to this the anti-tangle cable (which actually works) is just the right length and the built in mic is nicely positioned to enable clear sound while on phone. The sound quality is excellent and very clear. The music seal to keep out external noise is particularly effective adding hugely to the sound quality. On top of this they look pretty cool (denim headband). Overall I would highly recommend these headphones and found them far superior to others I have used over the last 2 years. 18 May 2014
Philips Citiscape This is a comfortable, product with excellent sound quality. The denim appearance makes the product look unique. The headphones are very light but I have dropped them several times and they have not been damaged in any way. The sound quality is excellent in most ranges, however they struggled with songs with a heavy bass in some circumstances. Overall in terms of price and quality, I strongly recommend this product. 14 May 2014
Great sound and stylish - love them! Very happy with my new Philips Downtown CitiScape headphones!! Firstly the sound quality with these headphones is amazing they seal my ears off from the world so it’s just me and my music! I find them great for my daily commute, I can listen to my music and they have a built in microphone so I can take calls too! These headphones have a dark denim headband that looks really stylish and fits in with my equally stylish wardrobe! Whilst looking cool they are really comfortable because they are cushioned, I wear them for my long commute with no problems . The cable is ‘tangle free’ why didn’t I ever think of that?! I have problems with too many things getting tangled up in my handbag and these are great as they actually don’t tangle. Overall I would definitely recommend them they are well made, good quality, comfortable and stylish as well as good value. 08 May 2014
excellent product! The first thing that impressed me about these philips headphones was the denim coating. It makes them look really cool and urban and different from your normal plasticy headphones. The sound was really impressive too. The ear pads are really comfortable and cancel out unwanted sounds. They are quite lightweight. The microphone on the cable is really handy too for use with a phone. For the price, quality and design I give these headphones a big thumbs up! 05 May 2014
A really pleasant surprise These are the first traditional, "old school", headphones I've ever owned and they really did surprise me. Ok, they seemed a little heavy on the head at first, but I figured this was due to the fact I was used to in the ear headphones. I soon got used to them though, and they are actually really comfy - the padding on the ears feels really soft and luxurious. The sound quality is excellent in my opinion. I play my music loud and my girlfriend was amazed she couldn't hear any sound from them. Even better, I couldn't pick up any external sound whilst using them. Often with good quality technical products, you sacrifice the look, but the black denim is funky and they are fashionable...the girlfriend has pinched them a few times for her commute to work she loves then that much. Functional and fashionable, in a nutshell. Great product; I'd definitely recommend them. 05 May 2014
