Comfy Design Great Sound,
This review is from: Panasonic RP-HJE450E-K Ergo Fit Ear Canal Headphones - Black (Electronics)
I bought these as a replacement for Sony MDRXB40EX Extra Bass Headphones because I had found them too uncomfortable to wear.
I have had Panasonics before and they have rarely let me down. This pair are no different. The earbuds stay comfortably in my ears and aren't disturbed by me moving around. I can happily wear them for hours at a time with no discomfort and none of the usual sense of needing to flex your ears and jaw after a long time.
The sound is good, with a noticable improvement over earphones around the £30 rrp for both mp3 and FLAC. The earphones also have little noise leakage, with noise being effectively blocked from your surroundings, and then successfully passing the little old lady on the bus test - she couldn't hear my music even when loud enough to shut out all bus noise.
I don't find the cable too short. I'm 5'5" and my mp3 player goes happily in a trouser pocket, with the cable wrapped around a few times. I imagine if you're over 6' you will need to buy an extender cable, but I definitely think that compared to other sets, these earphones have a slightly longer than average cable, at around 70cm from the jack to the earphone split and then an additional 40cm or so.
