The RP-HTX7-G1 from Panasonic offers terrific stereo sound in a stylish, ergonomic design. The padded, around-ear earcups help to isolate you from unwanted outside noise and the adjustable headband provides a secure and comfortable fit.
A 40mm driver is housed inside each earcup to provide an extra-wide frequency response with deep bass, clear midrange and smooth treble. The single-sided cable helps to minimize tangles. The standard 3.5mm connector ensures wide compatibility with a variety of consumer devices.

Overall rating is an average based on my objective vs personal stances. Objectively the headphones sound great, they're lightweight, have multiple adjustment points for proper fitting, the materials make a stable construction, and you just can't beat that price. Personally though, if I could redo the purchase, I wouldn't buy these headphones for myself because: 1) the earpieces are small and meant for children/teens or adults with small ears of which I am neither so my ears get uncomfortably shoved into the small ear holes, 2) since the cord is 2 feet too short I had to buy an extension so that I can lounge in my computer chair while I listen to music, 3) and hrmm can't think of a third[, like I said they are great headphones just not for me]. Due to the pros I listed above, I plan to continue using the headphones for the next couple months while I save up for different headphones. I can wear the headphones in a more forward position (off-center from my ear hole) so that my ears don't get shoved all the way into the ear holes. Since these are a great set of headphones for the right person, I plan to re-gift them to my niece. They will fit her great and she'll look too cool w/their retro look.
Very pleased with the Panasonic RP-HTX7. I ran across a recommendation for these headphone in review of the best headphones under $100 and was intrigued that the price was closer to the bottom that the top. I found a pair with the black covers at Adorama for under $30. I was looking specifically for a high-efficiency unit to use with my MP3 player and the Panasonics fit the bill. I like a right-angle plug for my headphones so a bought a right-angle adapter. I haven't tried it but it's fun to see folks modding these headphones to get a little more out of them.
50 dollars got me a pair of extremely comfortable headphones that sound better than my 150 dollar recording monitors, these are crisp, light, strong and cool. Thank you Panasonic for providing a quality product for a quality price in these crazy times! Quality enough for professional music production, durable and light enough for leisure and sports. Just awesome.
