  • Summary: I found these brand new at a local thrift store brand new for $30! To me due to them being very colored to my ears, they're not worth that. Their sound signature just doesn't play well with my ears. They do feel like the bass is a bit excessive.

  • Cons: too dark, very shouty mids, slightly bloated (sounding) bass

  • Summary: Pretty surprised by these cans - never though about Philips as of serious player. I wasn't lucky enough to hear something remarkable in the [previous] ranges of this manufacturer. But these guys are absolutely stunning, gorgeously looking well-balanced on-ear-phones.
  • Pros: Design; comfort; mids
  • Cons: Slight lack of bass; ears are getting hot

  • Conclusion: Petite consécration des anciens modèles neutres de la marque, le Citiscape Downtown délaisse le côté trop sage des anciens pour un modèle neutre et versatile.
