Does anyone have the Philips CitiScape Downtown's?

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 

They were barely released recently, and I'm just wondering if anyone has them. Or if there's any review's other than Tyll's review.

Anxious to hear about these too!  Especially in comparison to the M-80 or HD25.

I'm in the process of writing a review.  They are actually very great headphones.

If all goes well, it'll get posted after it's been looked over for accuracy (which will hopefully happen soon) :)

Tyll of InnerFidelity really liked them as well. I gave them a once over tonight (didn't listen, as I didn't have any sources on me), and they look very, very pretty! They'd be at home fitting over the heads of both men and women, with a touch of class too!

Anyone else have these?  Know someone how does?

The purple reminds me to the poor grado SR60i painted by someone on this forum (forgot the thread, but it was hilarious).

The brown, OTOH, look very slick!

I got the White (grey) ones :)  They don't look too bad :)

^ Please keep us posted. I am especially interested to hear about Philips Downtowns vs. V-MODA M80s in terms of sound and comfort.

Sorry with the delay for the review.  It's available here: http://www.ifans.com/blog/43800/

^ Thank you tinyman392 for the helpful review!

 

I have an odd question to ask you or any other Downtown owners: How much do these Downtowns heat up your ears? Say, compare to other on-ear headphones (e.g., HD25s, VMODA M80s or Sennheiser PX200), are the Downtowns cooler on ears, or wamer, or about the same?

 

Thank you. I ask because I can not wear most headphones long in a Houston summer, which gets quite hot even with good air conditioning.

Unfortunately, I've just begun reviewing actual headphones (I've been focusing on in-ears before this).  I can say that they don't heat up too much.  I've been able to wear them for 2 hours (8 on and off) at track meets (indoor and out) and on car trips.  Unfortunately I haven't been able to test them in extreme heat.

I'm also curious about any comfort issues with glasses. I can't use my SR80s because of the way the press my glasses into my head.

 

Thanks. Brad.
