I'm now on my third pair of these headphones (I bought 5 pairs from Argos when they were half-price at £4.99). I originally bought them when I had an HTC Beats mobile phone which came with a set of Dr Dre Beats Headphones that were truly awful. I mainly listen to music in the gym so I didn't want to spend a fortune as my headphones get a bit yucky after 6-months of use during four sweaty gym sessions a week.

I wasn't expecting much but I was delighted with both the comfort and the sound (hence buying five more pairs). I'm not an audio expert but I know the difference between decent sound and the sound you typically get from cheap headphones. They never fall out, have crisp sound with plenty of base and at this price, they're ridiculously good value. What's more, if you're like me and forever losing headphones or are a heavy user then these make perfect sense - I don't think I'd get any better quality if I spent £50 - £80.

I've now got an IPhone 5 and the Apple ear buds that were supplied aren't a patch on these and certainly don't feel as comfortable - when running on a treadmill you constantly feel like the Apple buds are going to fall out which I never do with the Panasonic buds.

Argos don't stock them anymore so I'm delighted to have found them on Amazon and when my current stock runs low I shall definitely be ordering them again.

I've bought a few cheap headphones lately to try to gauge the standard of technology available. These are a quite astonishing find. I've listened to sets at nearly 10 times their price and these produce a comparable sound. They are far better, for example, than the Sony MDRZX100 (on ear) or the Senheisser 201 (over ear). I think they could even bear comparison with the Senheisser 219 (on ear).

I've also listened to the Pioneer SE-CL501 and the JVC Xtreme Xplosives, both in ear and at similar price points. In my opinion the Panasonics are far superior. I'm looking for a fairly neutral frequency response to listen to classical music. These provide just that. The bass is present without being overpowering and the treble is sparkling without being shrill.

They are also very comfortable and seem to be quite secure in my ears. As is standard nowadays, they come with three different sizes of rubber earpads.

I finally settled on the Sony MDRZX600 as my main headphones. These Panasonics will be the set that I keep in my pocket when my main phones would be too bulky. I'll quite happily listen to music on them all day, and if I loose them, it only costs £6 to buy a new pair.

For anyone interested in a highly portable set of headphones for listening to classical, I'd highly recommend giving these a try.

They were a well priced set of headphones and they had a good sound quality to them I used them for about 2 hours a day then the left ear suddenly stopped working, I was quite annoyed at this as they were less than a month old. I presume its because the cord is the only easy way to take them out after use and by pulling on the cord the solder in between the cord and speaker will slowly weaken then it will eventually break. So in conclusion an ok set of headphones but they really didn't last long at all.

Still the best budget heaphones by far. I had many and these where better than some in the 50 quid and more range. Recently a friend of mine said the same.
Several reviews by various magazines and webistes in the last years tell the same.

If you want good sound at minimal price and dont care about the rest, this is what you should buy.

If you want fancy headphones with an expensive look...stay away. These are silent champions...not show offs.

I was a bit apprehensive at the price and bearing in mind a few negative reviews here.

Having lived with them for a couple of days, and got used to the asymmetric construction, I think they are pretty decent for the money. Sound quality is better than a £20 pair I bought a few years ago. I just wanted them for the office, hoping for tolerable quality without spending too much. They fit the bill perfectly, perhaps a bit better than I expected.

I've had these a few months now and have had no problems at all. They fit nicely into my small ears and stay in well too. The sound quality is crisp and clear, and you don't need the volume too loud. I went for these after about 5 pairs of earphones in a row that I owned all stopped working after short times. These are fairly cheap but good quality - just what I need!

The only dislike is that there's no slide-y thingy on the wires to make them shorter at the top (not sure what this is called).

Good quality sound much clearer than my old earphones and also these don't fall out at the gym which is a bonus.

I bought these simply as a cheap spare pair of headphones for when I can't find my Sennheiser's

I wasn't expecting much for the price and was a bit dubious about the rave reviews on Amazon.

The bottom line is that these little headphones punch way above their weight.

Basically I've left my Sennheiser's in the car a week ago and haven't felt the need to go fetch them. I'll just continue to use the Panasonic's.

My only grumble is that the plastic used to make them and the cable is obviously very cheap. But given the price point you can't really expect more.

When i first tried these headphones i thought they were bright and tinny and felt let down by Which! magazine.I realised that i did not place the phones deep enough and by doing so the sound is more hi-fi.Great for the price.

ok - so I love the Senheiser cx300mk2 but these are 20-25% of the price. I lost my previous pair of Senheisers so ordered a new set and then this popped up at the bottom of the screen. I figured for under £6 why not have them as a spare (see Amazon, the advertising worked...). Well first of all I thought they sounded ok but a bit cheap sounding but I figured they weren't quite in my ears properly so I swapped the middle size rubber for the large and they fitted perfectly with a good insulating sound seal. What a difference! The bass is nicely extended and the highs are ok and the middle smooth if a little restrained. Now being frank the Senheiser cx300mk2 is better in every way, much more sensitive, more detailed, more controlled bass and clear highs BUT these little panasonics are completely innoffensive and for the price - great as a backup (my kids get through headphones like they are going out of fashion). The only drawback is they aren't that sensitive so you need to whack up the volume so if you have destroyed your hearing in the past they might not go loud enough for you :-) Do yourslef a favour if you buy them - as I said above make sure you have the right size ear adaptors on them (bit tricky to get them on by the way!!) and you will notice the sound improves massively.
