Definitely looks intriguing, the design looks really gorgeous to me, great stretching headband so it won't clamp too hard, aluminium body. Angled driver, really good memory foam pads, semi-closed design with probably reasonably dense foam dampening inside. I love semi-closed designs, like they said brings the best of both worlds (well obviously not as great isolation as fully closed or as great soundstage as fully open but it's a good compromise in-between which results often in great bass response too).
Based on the pdf I think these will probably be somewhat similar to Sony ZX700 / Z1 with possibly just a slight touch more bass. Slightly boosted bass response, forward midrange, just tiny bit recessed highs (they never mentioned anything about highs but mentioned the vent in middle for increase lows and mids, why I suspect it will have a tiny bit tilting response) so wouldn't suprise me if they had a touch of warmthness to it. Just guessing and reading between the lines though. :P
Thumbs up for Philips for this one, there's definitely some thoughts and effort put into this headphone unlike many other lowcost headphones of theirs. Wonder when they will be available?
