Summary: If you want a classic retro look, excellent value and good sound quality, the RP-HTX7s are good headphones to choose. Compared to our other ranked headphones, the Panasonic RP-HTX7s are not the best over-ear headphones , but they are a great starting point to dive into the world of better sound.
Conclusion: We were pleasantly surprised by performance of the Panasonic RP-HTX7. What sonic deficiencies they do have are mostly sins of omission: They artfully shave off bits of sound quality here and there while never committing any serious errors, presenting an overall well-balanced sound.
Pros: Big, well-balanced and enjoyable sound, Fairly good bass for such a low-priced headphone, Durable overall design, Lots of retro-flavored finishes
Cons: Mids can sound a little thin, No accessories included, Can get a little hot after extended use
Summary: These were my first over-ear headphones, and I read a lot of good things about these headphones before buying them. I got them for 40$ (Canadian) at Future Shop as they were on clearance. I've used it for about 2 years before I upgraded to the Audio-Technica ATH-M50x.
Pros: Fun sound for the price, decent highs with lots of shimmer, good soundstage, lightweight yet durable
Cons: Recessed mids, rolled-off bass, highs may be too bright for some, earpads and headband wear out over time.
Summary: Having been told good things by others about these and I love their retro looks I purchased a pair to use on my commute. At the price I will not be too distraught if I leave them on the train, drop them or otherwise bring their useful life to a premature end.
Pros: Decent sound quality for the price, light weight, comfortable and cool retro looks
Summary: I LOVE music, but have never had an "Ok" pair of headphones. So I about a year ago I spent a few days looking for the best inexpensive pair I could afford.
I read hundreds of reviews and finally came up with two to chose from: The Panasonic RP-HTX7 and the Koss PortaPro.
Excerpt: RP-HTX7A to coś dla amatorów stylu retro. Nie wiem, czy projektanci tych słuchawek inspirowali się latami 60., ale z pewnością pasowałyby one do roweru z wielkimi kołami i wiklinowym koszykiem.
Conclusion: Pionnier de la tendance Vintage, ce RP-HTX7 est un objet solide et confortable avant d’être réellement un bon casque. Pas d’immense défaut mais une sonorité étrange, il reste en deçà de ce que proposent les meilleurs mais gardent en réserve quelques qualités évidentes.
