Gadgets these days might be getting smaller and thinner, but our headphones are definitely getting bigger and are becoming even more of a fashion accessory than they are an essential music-lover's item. So, as any true fan of music and fashion, I was excited to get the chance to review a pair of Philips' Downtown Citiscape Headphones from a style/accessories point of view.
For those of you with an eclectic sense of style, you'll be pleased to see that this Philips design is discreet (not to mention really comfy to wear on your ears for hours at a time), with a dark denim-type covering to the headband. Definitely something that can be worn with a variety of outfits and not too outlandish for the shrinking violets among you. What's great about these headphones ultimately, is that they have an old-school vibe with a modern packaging, which gives them a unique look and sets them apart from the competition. Forget shiny plastic and bright colours, these are the understated statement headphones to be seen with this season—cute and quirky, easily combined with any outfit and completely unisex—what's not to love?
If you love music, don't forget to head on over to You Need to Hear This (or follow on Twitter: @YNTHT_UK, #YouNeedToHearThis)—the brand new platform brought to you by Noisey and Philips, which celebrates "the music nerd in all of us." And for a true combination of music and fashion this season, you'll definitely want a pair of these Philips beauties to rock to around town.
