Philips Citiscape Downtown SHL5605BK / 10 Headband Headset with Microuniversel Black / Brown (Personal Computers)

Customer Review

With its elegant materials and colors of bourgeois interior (I commented brown / black model), this headset is rather chic; the materials are high quality and very neat details, like the anti-nodes flat cable, matching the color to brown headphones leather, gold plated jack and even the presence of a short extension delicately stamped "additional connector for Nokia, Samsung and Sony-Ericsson. " There unfortunately, at least in the copy I test, a loose connection of the cable at said jack, and if I set my iPod even locked in a jean pocket not particularly tight, various commands, as "pause", "play", "voiceover", "next", etc. are frequently sent to the iPod during movements.

The position of the microphone / remote control, the chin is ideal to talk. It would be less to handle all three buttons in a usual headphone remote, but it is reduced to one button "play / pause", this problem does not arise. For cons, the lack of volume controls obligation to let his player / phone unlocked, and pull it out at every turn, which is frankly stupid. Why not incorporate these basic functions in a rather upscale and clearly designed helmet, largely for the iPhone / iPod? The answer escapes me (and alone justifies my notes rather severe).
The left and right channels are indeed stated on the helmet, but it took me a while to find them: the L and R are engraved on the inside of the arch, the plastic rivets that hold protection canvas. However, Philips has chosen as its other helmets, place the cord / remote control on the left ear. In practice, therefore never have difficulty determining the direction in which to carry it.

Musically, I tested on very different music types: punkoïde soul of Alabama Shakes, the Baroque Handel headed by Minkowski, reggae Winston McAnuff, the deliquescent pop Antony & the Johnsons, the French song Cyril Mokaiesh, and so on. I found her very homogeneous overall, well-balanced across the spectrum with perhaps a slight lack in the treble, bass but well rendered and present without saturation. The voices are very well made. This is a helmet that, contrary to our ears, does not fear the high volumes and it even reveals all its sonic qualities. As announced, the ambient sounds are very well filtered, it will therefore avoid using this headset at the wheel or handlebars, to avoid the risk of accidents.

A word on comfort: the headband size adjustment is easy and stable, there is no need to adjust the continuously but if we have to, we find directly the right size. The helmet is very light and once placed can be worn long without having to be readjusted, and without further discomfort than having the pads glued to the ears, which can cause if you like me tend to allergies, a slight feeling of heater.

This is anecdotal, but it should also be noted that packaging would be like "unwrap by annoying" as everything seems to have been planned for that we can not open it without using the flamethrower, the Kalashnikov and chainsaw. Anyway, normally, we do it only once!
