Not especiaaly good


OK if cheap enough - much better made than Bose

I was going to return these since their ability to cancel out background noise is not up to the lower price Otto brand or the very cheap RCA. But the fit was better than those and they are better suited for say cutting grass using a tractor or other...

Doesn't seem to have sufficient noise canceling capacity

Great for 1/4 list price


Took these on two 6 hour flights and they made for a much more relaxing flight. I don't think they're as good as the Bose models but these cost 1/6 as much! We're still on the first alkaline battery.

Good sound, good ambient noise reduction, good battery life. The removable cord makes it easy to use these to sleep. The zippered case seems rugged and well designed

They do squeeze the sides of your head firmly, my wife had to remove her earrings while using

Solid Headphones


A very good buy for the price.

Very good audio quality ; Noise canceling works well ; Inexpensive

Make my ears feel hot after having them on for a long time. I think that's to be expected of any over-the-ear headphones, though

Great Headphones


Buy these... If you have any doubts trust me they are amazing. I have many pairs and these are by far my fav's.

Epic sound, seriously these things sound amazing. Great highs, mids, and bass. SUPER comfortable.... even on my giant head. I fell asleep with them on, and was perfectly comfortable. Great headphones for the price

They didnt come with free food

It works like it should


Keep in mind this runs using AAA battery.

Soft, light and sound is killer

Cord is very short, must have a longer cord

Panasonic noise-cancelling headphones


Great headphone! I use it when studying for homework mainly. It does a great job of blocking out most sounds. When I'm on the computer, for instance, I can't even hear myself typing on the keyboard or clicking on the mouse. I really don't need to use...

I can't find where the serial number is??? The manual says under the left earpad. I took it off and I still can't find it. Not good for warranty purposes. Speaking of warranty: beware, this only comes with a 90-day warranty. So I got a SquareTrade...

Used for my home studio, creating music demo's, hooked directly to guitar interface or 6 channel speakers.

Size, Sleek Design, Portable Case

Not very different from normal headphones you'd find for under $100, Noise cancelling feature doesn't do much

After getting used to fit I love them


I've been a headphone used for close to 40 years and these headphones rank near the top in my experience. Except for the high pressure which helps keep noise out but presses on my eye glass frame there is not much I can find against them. I listen only...

Block out most of noise just by the mechanical sound shielding. Active noise canceling works well for low frequencies. I find the headphone comfortable, particularly because of the relatively low weight

The fit is rather tight, and for eye glass wearers the pressure on the glass frame can be bothersome

PERFECT - at under $100, 5 Stars all the way!


I originally viewed this as a value purchase. I was willing to pay to upgrade from my mediocre Apple headphones. If Panasonic wanted to throw in noise canceling also, great! Having now owned them for a while I can say this goes beyond a value purchase....

Sound Quality: Awesome sound quality. The headphones are very well balanced, especially after in. I listen to Country, A Cappella, R&B, and Acoustic stuff and whether it's country twang, or OutKast, the headphones bring out all the sounds, both treble...

With noise canceling turned on, the headphones introduce a 'clipping' noise into the soundtrack when they try to compensate for for transient ambient noises. Travelling from CT to NYC on Amtrak, every time the train cars got jostled or bump, the music...
