Influenced by different people from major global cities, the Philips CitiScape Collection is inspired by city life and urban culture. Taking cues from the past and the future - where classic meets cutting edge - and inspired by urban street apparel, each headphone is truly distinctive. The Downtown is designed for full sound immersion, with a MusicSeal keeping your music personal. Wherever you go with your music, you will experience a truly immersive sound experience that shields you from the city's noise, but not its buzz.

High-Definition Drivers for Full-Range Sound
The Downtown headset provides a balanced sound experience. Powerful 40-millimeter drivers produce crystal-clear highs and mids and deep, rich bass without distortion. A closed-back design ensures good bass response and keeps you absorbed in the music.
MusicSeal Technology for Music Privacy
Whether you're listening to the guitar riffs of a funk metal band or the lifting soprano of an opera singer, Philips' MusicSeal technology allows you to keep your favorite music all to yourself. This design includes double-layer walls inside the ear shells and a firm seal between the edge of the ear cushion and ear cup housing to seal in beats and prevent ambient noise from disrupting your sound.
Comfortable Foam Ear Cushions Isolate Sound
The Downtown's deluxe, noise-isolating ear cushions are made of memory foam, which molds itself to the shape of your ear for hours of comfort. The foam also forms a seal that preserves bass response while blocking out external noise so you can focus on the music.
Comfortable Headband and Durable Metal Construction
The Downtown features lightweight spring-steel construction in the ear shell frame and headband, which is covered with cushy, heat-sealed fabric to make it even more comfortable. The headphones' flat, anti-tangle cable won't knot up, improving both your listening experience and their durability.
Convenient In-Line Mic for Phone Calls
For easy operation, the Downtown includes a sleek, in-line mic for use with your mobile phone so you can switch seamlessly from listening to chatting.
The in-line mic is compatible with iPhone, BlackBerry, HTC, LG, Motorola, Nokia, Palm, Samsung, and Sony Ericsson mobile phones.
