Customer Reviews:

  • Too big for my head
    If you have a small head, I would avoid these headphones. The headband part pops out on each side and it looks moronic. It's a shame b/c they sound pretty good and I like the overall look of them. Don't believe the reviews that say these are smaller than you'd think. They're not.

    One other major complaint is that the packaging is ridiculous. I had to cut through a plastic box and then cardboard just to get to them. Now I can't return them. So if you're not sure if you'll like these or they'll fit, I would avoid them altogether b/c once you open them, you're stuck with them. ...more info
  • A little less than Perfect
    these headphones were great. sound is "shiok" (described as fantastic or enjoyable by singaporeans). i'm not savvy and not a person who wants everything within my expectations, but a little more bass would be perfect. look wise, if the band could be built just above the cups would look nicer, than on the sides of the cups. it makes the headphones looks wide. my head is normal-sized so it doesnt feel tight for me. i was told that my ears are relatively small, hence they fit well into the cups!

    as i ordered it and was sent to singapore, when i received it, the box was damp, and you could feel the cord and the 3.5mm pin were wet. am not sure if its the weather change from US to Singapore affected the condition. but still it works fine.

    in a nutshell, good buy!...more info
  • Decent, But Not Outstanding.
    I've been looking for a nice, stylish pair of cans that I can use with my MP3 player for some time now.
    The way I saw it, I wanted nice sound quality from a pair of around-ear headphones that didn't look like an industrial, symbiotic growth, and the playful color and pleasing visual aesthetic of these headphones seemed to fit that description.

    After reading many reviews, I felt that the general opinion was mixed, but overall somewhat favorable, and I saw no better way to decide for myself than to buy them and try them.

    That being said, I purchased them for almost $60 at a local Target store, hoping that they might live up to the reviews I've read.

    But to be honest, I'm not planning to keep them.

    I felt that the mids were too high, and the bass was somewhat loose. The sound was muddy when my MP3 player's EQ was set to flat. Surprisingly, out of all the EQ presets on my player, the one that sounded best through these headphones was "Pop," which I found surprising, since usually that EQ sounds miserable on other headphones.
    Basically, I had to tweak the EQ a bunch in order to get these headphones to a point where I was happy with the sound.

    I turned up the bass frequencies a bit, turned the mid frequencies way down (-6 or -7), and turned the treble frequencies up.
    I will be quick to say that it sounded great after that, but I don't want to pay $60 dollars for a pair of headphones that I have to tweak that much.

    Also, I've read that the headphones sit funny against some peoples' jaws. This was true for me, I found it somewhat uncomfortable, and it would definitely take some getting used to.

    Bottom line: If you have to pay $60 dollars for them, don't buy these. Look elsewhere for another product.
    If you pay $20 dollars for them, and they don't irritate your jaw, they're simply an attractive pair of decent headphones.

    These are certainly not high end by any means, and don't expect a whole lot from them.

    Hope that helps.
    And for those that were curious, the current MP3 player I tried these with was a Sansa e280.

  • Pleasantly Surprised
    A huge bargain for the price! I was in the market for some Skullcandy ti's but saw these and with the price along with the look I couldn't resist. My first impression after opening the over packaged goodie consisted of a " whoa retro" first glance. The fit was good not exactly plush but comfortable. The sound was what blew me away the most, the sound quality was way above what was expected. I listen to music ranging from jazz to happy hardcore and was pleasantly surprised on the quality these cans put out. I have tested these on a zune, an ipod, and a sansa clip, and cannot complain on the quality. The bass responded very well on all three players, as well as the treble, even though the mids were a bit on the ok side. The form factor is probably the only mediocre thing I could find, altough very lightweight, these feel a little on the plastic side due to its design. All in all a great bargain. I would suggest these headphones if you're not much of an audiophile but are in the market for some nice sounding headphones that won't break the bank, as well as for those needing everyday headphones. ...more info
  • Good for everyday use
    I saw these for $20 with free shipping and considering my last few pairs cost around $10 and were basically glorified earbuds this looked like an opportunity. The shipping was incredibly fast (basically 1 business day, paid Wednesday night and it arrived Friday morning).

    Sound quality is great for everyday listening, decent response all around. I also produce electronic music and these worked okay but they're no substitute for good monitors. They block out a lot of outside sound (I can barely hear my Model M keyboard) and can't be heard at all from a foot away, which makes them great for an office or any other environment where disturbing others is an issue.

    Now the cons: The ear cups are a little small for my huge ears, after a while of being bunched up inside the lobes get sore and I have to take some time off (which isn't a bad idea anyway). The short cord is also an issue but that was expected, hooked up a coupler and got enough range from that....more info
  • What a Deal
    Panasonic RP-HTX7-RS Ryan Sheckler Signature HeadphonesI managed to catch these on sale. Bought 1 pair, then another for my son, then another to put back. Unbelievable quality for the money. Do go ahead and buy the extension cord as others suggest as you don't get one in the box, nor is the headphone cord itself long enough for a standard desk setup....more info
  • Pretty good for the money.
    I've seen these at target for some time now and have always liked the retro design. I finally gave in to buying them when i saw the amazing price amazon had for them. For 20$ they're a great pair of cans. At first the highs are a bit harsh. Mids are ok. Bass is decent at best. Burning them in for a month helped a bit. I would highly recommend pairing the pannys with a fiio e3/e5 amp. It tames the highs and adds bass. Making the sound a bit "warmer". ...more info
  • After 2 Years of Use
    I've liked them the entire time. The sound is great, but I'm no audiophile. I've enjoyed them thoroughly. I got the green model but mine came with a beige band on top as opposed to the black one in the picture now. Mine also came with an extender. They were new to the market and not on sale but I used a coupon and bought them for $30-something. I'd pay that (which it's on sale now probably indefinitely) but I wouldn't pay the full price.

    Issues:
    I have small ears but even so the pads can be uncomfortable because of how little room they leave. Sometimes it's hard to position it so that you aren't sore or numb an hour later.

    The pad material is probably the worst manufacturers could use. I doubt it's leather but if it is it's very thin. They started cracking within months of use and it's not like that part goes through rigorous activity. 2 years later I'm searching for new pads (they detach) but am having no luck. I'm likely to give them away and buy a better set, probably Koss, but these have been well worth it..you could probably just put tape over them and it'd look just fine.

  • Great Sound Bargain Price

    The delivery time was super fast. The phones look hot and sound great. They are a real bargain for the price. Has great bass sound. Note that the cord is short and there is no volume control. But if you dont care about that, I would strongly recommend them....more info
  • Classic
    I thoroughly enjoy this product. It was half the price of the retail, and shipped fast. When first purchasing the item I was looking only for style, but was surprised by the excellent audio quality. Panasonic makes excellent products!...more info
