Summary: Massive headbanging will mean the unit falls off, but that is expected of almost any circumaural headwear.
Pros: I had been hunting for a good overall audio equipment that would deliver justice to my music, and I found it in these. The 3.5mm connector tip is sturdy built, and the adapter plug for 6.35mm works great. The cable itself feels quite resilient, and at over 2m it is quite enough for almost all uses I have for it. The headphones themselves are also very well built. They are light enough not to notice them, but heavy enough not to fall off. The audio is also great: big d...
Summary: Compared to my Philips shp5401 and Sennheiser hd598 headphones the bass response is well below neutral. However, the soundstage is impressive and the mids and highs are clear and airy. They are very comfortable with the soft expanding headband and fabric ear cushions. Due to the poor bass I sent them back to amazon.
Summary: Very good headphones; I'd describe their sound as neutral, in that they really reflect what you put into the them and the source you use. The better the audio quality and source the better they sound. Very comfortable too. They are pretty big so don't buy them to plug into your i-fashion gadget and go jogging in!
Summary: Looking around, there weren't all that many reviews except a few people here and there comparing them to a pair of Audio Technica AD700's. I needed a new pair, and would want them for movies and games which the AD700 seemingly do so well with, so I decided to take a gamble. First impressions are really good. Build quality seems to be pretty solid for this price, although I'm not sure they will stand up to years of continuous abuse.
Summary: I bought these to replace the ageing Technics RP-880F phones which had served me well but were getting a bit shabby. The new phones are of virtually identical appearance so I was confident that they would be just as comfortable for long periods. Audio performance is excellent at this price level and the model represents good value in my view. Perhaps a wee bit light on deep bass but very nice for the female vocals which form much of my listening.
Summary: A high end hi-fi product from Panasonic? I was skeptical. To be fair Panasonic have made hi-fi for as long as I can remember, but it's a name you associate with mass market consumer electronics rather than hi-end audio. Well the RP-HTF890 isn't going to change that situation. It's just not hi-end hi-fi and at £40.99 inc delivery it was never designed to be. What you get for the money is very good though. I was considering Grado phones at £89.
Summary: Bought these as the other half is a bit sensitive noise wise and I needed to replace some well used headphones. Light, comfortable and they throw out a pretty good sound. I am no audiophile but these cans sound pretty sweet to me. They are full ear covered and I wear glasses which can be problematic if headphones are to tight, not the case with these as they sit on my large head without putting too much pressure on my ears.
Summary: ... it was great year. Everything around me was booming, people were happy. Then, there came the climax of the year - I purchased my first proper headphones: Technics RP-F880. They stood out from the rest. With their frequency range 5Hz - 30kHz and 50mm large-caliber driver they were bound to perform.. and perform they did!!! The sound was crisp and detailed, it reminded me of my days in recording studio.. All for mere £50, even though the memories were priceless.
Summary: Normally people don't associate name Panasonic/Technics with high end audio head gear. This is a wrong assumption in my opinion. I own various cans: Sennheiser 202, 238, 448, 595, AKG 450 , 271, Audio Technica ATH-M50 and Beyerdynamic 770M and I can safely say that Panasonic HTF890 are brilliant headphones. They are top of the range product form Panasonic headphone line. These are monitors but not the usual flat sounding and very neutral ones.
