I would like to request the Philips Citiscape Downtown to be added to the list of Heaphones in the Middlerange club.
Really great mids that take front and center of the music, movies and games that I've tested them on for the last couple of weeks. Really, it's unreal the difference it makes coming from bass heavy headphones like the Beats, the ATH-M50s, and cheap desktop speakers like the Bose Companion 2. While the bass are prominent, they don't recess the mids and the highs are detailed but rolled off a bit.
The sound is loud and powerful unamped, but open up the soundstage a bit with the Fiio E6 and even the Earforce DSS. Imaging is good but not great. Same for the instrument separation. These are on-ear headphones so if you listen to classical or want more soundstage, you'd be better off with it's big brother the Citiscape Uptown.
