Summary: Panasonic RP-HS43 Clip-On Headphones with XBS Extra Bass System
I bought these for use in my shop where I want to hear the music and the background noises in the shop as well. With their ear hooks, they stay in place easily, fit under welding helmets, grinding shields and under earmuff if the noise level is too loud.
The biased length cord is a bonus for my use, since I put the cord over my back and bring it up under my armpit with the ipod in my front shirt pocket.
Summary: Dont buy these expecting $150 headphones because they are not but for the price these do have awesome clarity and they are extemely comfortable. They stay on my ears well and the wire is light enough you dont feel it tugging. I even like the fact that one side of the Y is longer than the other. I wear these alot at work and so I can hear others I wear one side and leave the other side either clipped on the front of my shirt or laying on the desk.
