Corinn Heathers says:

Those Pannies have some of the worst sibilance in the highs I’ve ever heard
and the mids are basically absent they’re so notched. They aren’t good by
any stretch of the imagination.

Failbilly Extreme says:

I rather buy a 200$ over ear headphone because MOST 200$ over ear
headphones will sound good

Jack Morgan says:

I’ve got those Panasonic headphones and i’m telling you now you can do a
lot better for the price. They look like workman’s ear defenders, they are

The Panasonic RP-HTX7 (number one on this list) lasted me close to seven
years. They worked well until recently, when the sound finally began to
crackle because of damage to the wires from regular use. I had them jumbled
in my bag for ages, so I’m impressed by the quality for the price.

So far the Audio Technica ATH-M50 is one of the best sounding headphone
I’ve tried. Lots of good reviews for this headphone. Amazon got them on
