Comfy In-Ear Phones Block a Lot of Noise

 

These comfy in-ear phones block the majority of noise via rubbery stoppers, and the in-line volume control spares you from having to fumble around to make quick

Panasonic RP-HC55 Review

 

Clear sound with active cancellers at a surprisingly economical price

The headphones are quite solid and boast of an interesting shape that gives a unique touch to it. The superior isolation score makes sure the active noise cancellation technology works really well. It is one of the most economical active-cancellers...

The audio quality could have been better. The pendant is not located at a strategic place which robs off the comfort factor to a considerable extent

The Panasonic RP-HC55 headphones promise decent audio experience along with durability and comfort. The active noise cancellation is, probably, its most remarkable feature. The long battery life makes it a sensible choice to go for.

Best noise-canceling earphones

 

Of earphones that offer both passive and active noise cancelation, the Panasonic RP-HC55 earphones get the best reviewer response. These earphones block sound waves physically, as well as generate white noise inside the ear, which negates other...

Active noise canceling, very long battery life, comfortable fit

Unexceptional sound quality, noise-canceling unit can pull on cord

A scientific, in-depth analysis with side-by-side comparisons

The RP-HC55s aren’t spectacular headphones. In fact, they have some issues with comfort since the control pendant is downright awkward. This being said, if the pendant doesn’t annoy you, these are a very inexpensive set of active-cancelling in-ears....

Panasonic RP-HC55 review

 

These noise-cancelling earphones didn't make the best first impression. It was hard to remove from the packaging, the drivers are huge and the pen-shaped housing for the battery and electronics doesn't feel particularly durable. No battery is supplied,...

High sound quality and effective active noise cancelling are a winning combination at such a competitive price.

These Make for Easy Listening

 

Anyone who uses headphones for any activity will appreciate the Panasonic RP-HC55 in-the-ear headphones. The earbuds are as comfortable as any in-the-ear sets can be, the active noise reduction (ANR) is very efficient, and the result is much better ...

Great sound reproduction

Durability is questionable

Nice and cheap earphones. ”

 

I am very pleased with these earbuds. First, they sell for only $30-40 as opposed to $200 or more for most noise-cancelling earbuds on the market. Second, they are extremely comfortable, with silicon inserts that set snuggly in your ears. Third, and...

Panasonic RP-HC55 Headphones: A Neccessity for the Thrifty Music Lover

 

I listen to a lot of music, and I own an iPod. If you're like me in those respects, you may have quickly figured out that the earbuds that come with the iPod are, to be frank, worthless pieces of garbage. They don't fit the ear properly (at least mine)...

Outstanding sound quality and noise canceling. Headphones are comfortable

A few design flaws, mostly involving the placement of the battery-containing module

Good performance/price balance

 

A good earphones. Very good noise cancellation capability as advertised. The only problem is that it creates unpleasant static noise when using it for running on a treadmill.

Compact, Great Sound
