Excellent audio quality, affordable and PRIVATE!!,
This review is from: Philips SHL5605BL/10 CitiScape Downtown Headphones with Music Seal/Memory Foam Cushions - Blue Denim (Electronics)
I don’t often write reviews but I thought I would for these headphones.
I purchased these headphones about 10 days ago. I already have some Dre Beats headphones but I’ve always had a problem with the amount of audio the beats headphones let out. I would quite often be on my travels and other around could hear my music, often resulting in them asking me to turn the sound down. The reason I went for these Philips headphones was due to the music seal, hopefully eliminating the leaking audio.
They come in a stylish box, well displayed. Upon opening the box the headphones themselves are a lovely deep blue denim style. It comes with a long cable including hands free easy access set of buttons just below the headphone ear piece.
I connected the headphones to my iPhone and played a selection of different styles of music. I wasn't expecting much from the sound quality as I was used to Beats headphones but I was very impressed. They have a brilliant sound from all spectrums of EQ. I'm a keen musician so I am very critical of audio quality. The bass was very noticeable and clear, with the higher tones also great. I played rock, dance, pop, hardcore and also audio books as a tester. All of the styles of music were fantastic through these headphones.
These headphones are capable of going very loud without distortion. I asked my wife to sit next to me whilst I experimented with different volumes to test the music seal. The seal is very good and she was unable to hear my music. The only slight bass note she could occasionally hear was if the room was completely silent and I had the headphone volume on full. A huge improvement to my Dre Beats.
To summarise these are great headphones, they are very cheap compared to competitors, great quality and extremely private which was a must for me due to travel. My wife appreciates these much more because she can’t hear my music when I’m sitting next to her!
Highly recommended - 5*
