Headphones have become an indispensable part of people's life entertainment. For those who have just touched the headphones, the head-mounted sound insulation experience, the industrial design of the avant-garde personality and the shocking low-frequency effect are often the heart of the entry-level players. Although the major manufacturers in the market are launching entry-level headphones, many of them will feel that the color is not good, the shape is not beautiful, or the sound is not shocking. For entry-level headphones, it seems that the shape and sound have become the "story of fish and bear's paw" in the eyes of ordinary music lovers.
Is it really so difficult to do? Today, the author brings you the Philips CitiScape City Series's Fixie passion series, the latest launch of a youthful green color lightweight portable headset SHL5305, the main bass performance. Perhaps it appears exactly the style you are waiting for. For young friends, wearing headphones on the street often considers more of the quality of the sound, but whether the shape is eye-catching, and whether the clothing is good-looking. Therefore, the industrial design of headphones has gradually become one of the important criteria for selecting headphones.
First we saw that the Philips SHL5305 packaging is very eye-catching. Colorful packaging and color, simple and open window design, these continue the CitiScape urban series of stylish and dynamic design style, for young friends, this packaging is like a candy is quite attractive in front of the eyes.
Unpacking, we saw the full picture of the Philips SHL5305 headset. The first feeling is beautiful, exquisite appearance, gorgeous candy color, simple matching scheme makes this earphone highlight the urban taste and style. The color that the author got is youthful green, in addition to the three colors of calm black, hot red, and pure white for users to choose.
Softer sponge ear pads are used on the inside of the earmuffs. Compared to traditional leather ear pads, the sponge ear pads are ideal for comfort and breathability. Careful friends may see that the left and right channel logo of the Philips SHL5305 also adopts the more popular internal standard method. This design is fashionable and atmospheric, and is recognized by the young market.
We can see from the picture that the ear cap of the Philips SHL5305 is quite soft, and the feedback force after pressing gently with a finger is very comfortable. The earphone cable adopts a bilateral non-removable design, and the earmuffs can be rotated 180Â° vertically, which is convenient for the user to monitor. This kind of design can be said to be tailored according to the habits of the hipsters.
We saw that the head beam skeleton was designed with a retro-shaped bimetallic wire, which was inspired by the brake line of the bicycle. Use a lightweight and durable metal wire to link the earmuffs and the headgear to ensure a safe and secure fit and long-term comfort.
The embossed leather headband is a highlight of this headset. The bold herringbone embossing reminds me of the chic letter combination branding fashion personality, which is more textured than the monotonous solid color head beam of other headphones. In the details, SHL5305 allows us to understand that Philips as an international brand is so careful about the details of the product.
The remote control of the headset is placed on the left ear. The wire-controlled appearance adopts a matte black treatment method. Considering that it is often necessary to control, the combination of black and matte greatly improves the wear resistance of the wire control. The feedback function of the remote control button is very good. The built-in microphone makes it easy for the mobile phone user to answer the call. At the same time, the double-click can also be used to switch songs very conveniently.
The plug of the headset uses a standard 3.5mm L-shaped gold-plated plug. Such a plug can further protect the corners of the wire from damage due to bending. At the same time, the 4-segment plug also marks that this headset is a dedicated earphone developed for mobile music users, suitable for mainstream smartphones in the market.
After a week of uninterrupted downtime, the tracks we listened to selected Black Eyed Peas's "Lets Get it Started" and Qu Yuting's "My Songs". The low frequency is the most easy to catch the frequency band that the listener resonates. The performance of the Philips SHL5305 is especially prominent at low frequencies. The deeper dive of the low frequency should be the earphone with deep dive in the same series of products. The sense of volume is more, and the sound surround is stronger. Therefore, the sound field can be felt relatively small, and the sound is warmer. It is suitable for HipHop and R&B styles. The songs, excellent transient response, are also easy to handle for rhythmical songs. The performance of the vocals is quite satisfactory. Perhaps the low frequency is too strong and the vocals will be slightly dim. When we hear Qu Yuting's song, it will obviously feel the tightness of vocal expression. However, the lack of vocals does not mean that a headset has a lack of sense of hearing. The Philips SHL5305 has a certain degree of tension in the expressive power of female voices, and the details have a certain portrayal power. In general, this headset is more suitable for both low frequency and high frequency, so it is very suitable for friends who are listening to the sense of hearing. The powerful sound surround will make you feel in the music.
