  • 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.   Being an active Senn PX-100 (Ist gen) user I got pretty used to their bass, which is considered by the majority of people as "overboosted", - surely, I noticed a lack of those in Citiscape Downtown.
  • Pros: Design; comfort; mids
  • Cons: Slight lack of bass; ears are getting hot

  • 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. I think it seems worse than it is due to a severe lack of treble. These aren't as dark as the TMA-1, but maybe close. Some of my favorite tracks seem to sound a bit murky and almost congested.
  • Pros: comfortable, cheap
  • Cons: too dark, very shouty mids, slightly bloated (sounding) bass

  • Summary: Listened to these for a few hours yesterday straight out of the box, these are my current thoughts:   Straight out of a Clip+, my phone, and a Kindle Fire these sound quite good. Not as good as my other cans, but good enough that I wouldn't immediately start missing my other cans if I just brought them as a portable solution while on a vacation or something.
  • Pros: Good sound quality, well built and quite good for portable use
  • Cons: Somewhat uncomfortable, doesn't sound as good as some more expensive cans

Fantastic isolation & sound

Miss J. Jordan, Amazon

  • Summary: I got these for a long haul flight, UK to Australia. I looked into lots of noise cancelling headphones and went to a shop to try some on which is when I found these and for the price I was really impressed. They worked well with an airline adapter and just kept them on my head when I was sleeping. I have quite a small head but they fit very well and only experienced minor uncomfortable fitting after hours and hours of wear. Really glad I got these.

Been searching for in line microphone for android

Nur Aqilah Mohd Tarmizi, Amazon

  • Summary: I've been searching hours and hours on amazon just to find the right headphone for me. I've looked at sony but the reviews is not that convincing as most of the in line mic are meant for iphone. Luckily I found this with an affordable price which turns out just perfect for everything. Sounds is excellent and the mic is just right at the mouth level instead of belly level.
