Panasonic are an over-the-ear style of headphones advertised as being lightweight, comfortable and offering a full-ranged sound. They are ridiculously cheap and seem to target those looking for a budget set of headphones. Let’s delve deeper, shall we?

How It Looks

As previously mentioned – these headphones are cheap. In fact, they’re really, really cheap. There’s been a recent influx of cheap products built in a way that have the product looking more expensive than what it really is – this is no one of those products. These headphones don’t look pretty at all. If you slap these babies on your head and go for a jog, everyone will say “Look! There’s the cheapest guy in town!” These headphones are modest, that’s for sure. If that doesn’t bother you – great! If you’re trying to impress all your friends down at the local golf course; however, you may want to look elsewhere.

Sound Quality

I certainly couldn’t live with myself if I recommended someone listen to Dark Side of the Moon for the first time with these headphones – definitely not. But for the price, you are getting a decent sound quality. Panasonic, when describing their product, throws around a bunch of mumbo jumbo such as neodymium magnets, which supposedly increase sound quality. I don’t know a lot about that, but you’re definitely getting good quality sound relative to the price.

Comfort

These headphones are one of those sets that go over the ear (as opposed to ear buds) but don’t actually wrap around the ear. Sure, they’re more comfortable than ear buds, and you won’t have to worry about any ear comfort, but there’s nothing really keeping these headphones from falling off of your head. Unless your noggin is the size of Sputnik, it might be a little uncomfortable jogging or engaging in any other strenuous activity due to their lack of ability to stay in place.

Conclusion

Overall, after considering everything, I’ll give these bad boys a 4 out of 5. I know, I know – I’ve done a bit of complaining about them. However, when you take a look at their overall quality and then take a look at the price, you’re getting a decent deal here. They’re not for everyone, nor do they suit every occasion. But for a bargain, these are a great set of headphones to have laying around in case your good ones break, or to buy for your daughter if you just can’t stomach another Katy Perry song blasting on loud speakers. They’re not fancy, but anyone seeking a good quality-to-price ratio should seriously consider picking up these headphones.

Who This Item Suits Best

If you have the money and are willing to shell out a few extra dollars for a quality set of headphones, start shopping around – these aren’t for you. If; however, you’re looking for a budget set of headphones with a decent value, you may find something in this product. If you want something cheap that doesn’t cause earitation (see what I did there?), these headphones are probably for you. If you’re looking for something lightweight, you can’t go wrong with these, either.
