Pinktastic Panasonic headphones

Crave UK deems these pink 'phones none too shabby for the price.

Want to see some suspiciously decent headphones for about $60? You'll have to be prepared to accept that you'll look like a right nerd wearing them. These pink new ladycans are from Panasonic, and they're called the RP-HTX7s.

We must admit we were skeptical when we opened the (frankly awful) packaging--they're bright pink, sport a fake leather headband, and look like miniature kettles from World War II. Yet they're pretty comfy and--seriously, now--they sound pretty good for the price. They have a response range from 7Hz-22KHz, resulting in clear highs, powerful mids, and acceptable bass.

Whether or not you're going to want to encase your skull in these on a stage at Ibiza is up to you and your comfort with your own sexuality--blokes may attract more guffaws than bubbly blondes.

But for girls perhaps? We decided to annoy the feminists and ask a few of our CNET ladies whether or not they'd wear them onstage or out and about. Shannon, our k-rad ladysub, said, "Maybe..." while both of SmartPlanet's feminine Fair Traders said, "Oh hella to the yes!" (street lingo inserted).

But a definitive, "No, not a chance," was heard from's Kate Macefield, leading us to the radical conclusion that it's all a matter of taste. If you dig pink and fancy decent cans in the $60 region, these could be the retro 'phones for you.

Details about Apple's 'spaceship' campus from the drone pilot who flies over it

MyithZ has one of the most popular aerial photography channels on YouTube. With the exception of revealing his identity, he is an open book as he shares with CNET's Brian Tong the drone hardware he uses to capture flyover shots of the construction of Apple's new campus, which looks remarkably like an alien craft.
