Summary: I bought these after reading the reviews here on Amazon. I have been satisfied with the performance of them. Some of the reviews nitpicked about the sound not being to their liking. For the price I do not expect Bose speaker performance. The bass is strong, the mid and highs are not tinny. The are a very good buy for everyday use. The ear buds are comfortable and stay in.They also come with different size buds.
Summary: These were my first Panasonic Earbuds. They wont be my last. The sound is very good with ample bass response. What impressed me most about these is the design of the cord with the double sliders allowing the cord to be worn around the neck with one of the sliders in back. Worn in this manor, I get virtually no cord noise. The sound has certainly gotten better after using them for several hours.
Summary: I have really liked using these earbuds. I use them for audio books when I go on my walks, or for music at night when I don't want to bother my husband. Unfortunately I am a Klutz. Today, I had my iPhone in a waist holder, but it was only part way into the holder. I bent over just enough for the iPhone to fall out of the holder. The phone dropped out, and was cushioned in the fall by the wire.
Summary: I'm using these buds to listen to audio books on my iPod. The spoken word sound is great: rich, deep, natural sounding. Highly recommended. Additionally, the buds block out most surrounding sound and I feel I can use them as effective noise dampeners on airline flights.
Summary: Panasonic is one of the biggest names in electronics for a reason, they deliver quality. The Panasonic slims are no exception. They have the looks of a set three times their actual price, and are extremely comfortable. I run fairly frequently, and these are my go-to pair of ear-buds for any kind of out-door physical activity. They don't bleed sound at all, however they do let enough sound in that I don't worry about getting hit by a car.
Summary: Although they do not have a UPMPH base sound- like others have mentioned- but they still have a very clear, deep sound. In fact, even when they are turned low, I still cannot hear someone next to me talking. The reason I purchased these is because I hated how my last ear buds fit. I run in mine, and every other pair seemed to fit awkward and I would have to constantly readjust them to hear. These fit perfectly and do not need to be adjusted. I also like the cord design.
