Philips Citiscape Metro Headphones (Black)


The Philips Metro headphones are the company's entry-level model in the sartorial Citiscape line. Priced appropriately for their build and sound quality at $49.99, their Euro-inspired looks are contemporary and clean with availability in black, white,...

The Philips Citiscape Metro on-ear headphones exhibit a sleek, Euro design with a warm balance of sound.

The headphones are missing smartphone-friendly features like a foldable headband, an inline mic, and volume controls.

The Citiscape Metro on-ear headphones have a great sense of style for a budget-priced headphone, but the sound lacks clarity.
