  • 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

  • Summary: Really good natural sound. Almost perfect isolation from external sounds. Too hot for your ears during the summer.

  • Summary: I bought these months ago at a different place but I thought I would write a review for it for other people. This is a fantastic buy, it lacks a bit of bass but it makes up for its comfortable foam and sound quality. This is the longest I've ever owned headphones and Im the type of person that brings headphones everyday when I leave the house, I've tossed them around a few times and I've worn them when it's raining and they're still holding up for me.
