  • 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

Good at the price

  • Summary: Comfortable, good all round headphones. The only gripe is the covering of the headphone speakers themselves make my ears sweat after long periods so would have been nice to be able to change the covering for something better.

GREAT SOUND, TIGHT FIT.

  • Summary: I haven’t used headphones for music for many years. So I read plenty of reviews before deciding on the Phillips Downtown. My aging ears aren’t what they were, so it was pointless spending big money for perfect hi-fi sound. I didn’t want a thumping bass, and reviews of the Phillips usually said to look elsewhere if you want a big bass sound, and that’s how I made my choice. They are a good looking pair of headphones, and seem to be well made, with nice material.

Not for smartphones..

  • Summary: I bought these after reading various positive reviews. I've never owned any Philips headphones before,but the aforementioned praise piqued my interest so I took the plunge and found a very reasonably priced pair on ebay for £25 new. Straight out of the box I was impressed with their sleek design,especially the denim covered headband and plush ear pads. They feel incredibly comfortable too.

Excellent sound quality

  • Summary: I've been looking for a new set of headphones to replace the earbud style I usually use. I've tried many different models under £100 from Sennheiser, AKG, Bose, Audio-Technica and others, and these Phillips sound the best. I've got no issues at all with the sound - clear, balanced, no obvious peaks or dips in the frequency response, and they don't suffer from the massive unnatural bass extension that plagues other makes.

Excellent, but time will tell

  • Summary: Have been wearing daily for last couple of weeks now, first off, they are really comfy, even on my big ears. Have worn for hours at a time and despite a relatively tight clamp, they remain comfortable. The passive noise attenuation is excellent. Sound quality is pretty good price wise and compare well with my sennheiser px100 ii, not amazing but for everyday listening great.

A bit expensive but (mostly) good value

Grev, Amazon

  • Summary: By reputation the best low price headphones money can buy are the Sennheiser HD 202's. However, for me, the HD 202's aren't particularly comfortable, are bass heavy and come equipped with a 3 metre cable that is WAY too long and gets totally tangled. Nevertheless, even though these Philips Cityscape Downtown's cost more than a pair of HD 202's, I wasn't expecting them to sound as good.
