First Look: Panasonic RP HJE355 headphones sound very good for the money

1:42 /

Panasonic's very affordable RP-HJE355 series in-ear headphones sound as good as many earphones that cost twice as much.

I'm David Carnoy, executive editor for CNET.com, and I'm here with another pair of inexpensive Panasonic earphones. These are the RP HJE355's. They come in multiple colors and their claim to fame is they actually cost less than $20, it least for around $39 and they actually due sound like $40 to $50 earphones, least a lot of the ones we have listened to. I also early reviewed another Panasonic model. The HGE 120 which cost a near $7 on Amazon's and these are a little bit better built in those, they do have some metal on them, there's a machine metal and the headphone cord does not get tangle as much. I did find the cheaper plastic model, those HE 120 is a little bit more comfortably are slightly lighter, but these are better built and I think this will hold up a little bit better over time. Also the headphone plug is a little bit smaller on these, it's also an L-shape plug and reinforced. These are your basic earphones, they don't have a built-in mic or remote or anything like that but they are comfortable, they are cheap but they do sound good. They have a nice balance centers and a ton of base. They have ample base, and there's good detail. As I said, we listen to a lot of earphones causing $40 to $50 and these basically sound as good as those guys. So these are definitely a bargain at $17. I'm David Carnoy, and those are the HJE355 Panasonic earphones. Thanks for watching.
