If you aren\u2019t an audiophile\u2014someone who seeks the highest quality of sounds\u2014and need a cheap pair of headphones that do their job and that\u2019s it, one of the best over ear headphones come from Panasonic themselves. The Panasonic RP-HT161-K delivers good sound for its price, and the price is incredibly low.\r\n\r\nWhy We Like It - Panasonic RP-HT161-K Review\r\nStripped down to the bare minimum, these wired-headphones are comfortable on the ears and deliver good sound quality for a very small price. Ideal for budget seekers.\r\n\r\nPerformance\r\nWhen taking in the audio, the quality was fairly neutral. Bass, mid-range, and high frequency trebles never competed with one another. Hearing clear vocals is good, though we would\u2019ve liked some deeper bass. With its 30mm neodymium drivers, and a frequency response of 10Hz-27kHz, it has solid range. It isn\u2019t anything special, but if you\u2019re being a couch potato, and need some music, you\u2019ll get enjoyment out of the Panasonic RP-HT161-K. But if audio quality is a big concern, then we recommend upgrading to COWIN E7 Active Noise Cancelling Headphones or COWIN E7 Pro.\r\nDesign\r\nAs for design, Panasonic went with a fairly minimalist approach. This isn\u2019t a Bluetooth pair of Panasonic headphones, it\u2019s corded\u20146.5-foot long cord, to be specific. That\u2019s great, but cumbersome on-the-go. It\u2019s 0.66 lbs, preventing too much pressure being applied to the head. Its matte black finish is complemented by the comfortable earbuds that minimize ambient noise, though the Mpow 059 Bluetooth Headphones were a bit more comfortable. The build quality certainly feels cheap. We didn\u2019t expect much, given the price. At least sacrifices were made there and not with sound.\r\nValue\r\nEvery aspect of the Panasonic RP HT161 K Full Sized Over-the-ear Lightweight Long-corded Headphones were average, at best, and cheap in other areas to save cost. They\u2019re not what you\u2019d consider \u201chigh end.\u201d Are they bad? Not by any measure. The value is linked to price. If you\u2019re someone who\u2019s on a budget or notorious for breaking headphones often, the Panasonic RP HT161 K Headphones are enticing. It doesn\u2019t quite have the high quality sound that audiophiles seek, but for $15, you get a decent pair of headphones.\r\nPanasonic RP-HT161-K Review Wrap Up\r\nFor what it\u2019s worth, the Panasonic Headphones RP HT161 K are a decent pair of headphones for deal seekers and headphone-breaking individuals. They\u2019re comfortable on the ears for a while and minimize ambient noise, sound quality that\u2019s clear and good enough, and priced really low. If you don\u2019t plan on traveling, cable management isn\u2019t an issue.
