Like its predecessor, the Panasonic RP-HJE270 is available in a variety of bright colors—blue, violet, orange, red, pink, etc.—and comes with three separate pairs of differently sized earpads.

I just bought these headphones from Radio Shack, I specifically wanted to buy an in-ear model because sometimes I travel by bus, and the low frequency rumble of the engine is deafening (literally). Also at work, my colleagues don't have a definition for a quiet, so I got the Panasonic RP-HJE270 headphones to try and block some of the noise out. I haven't tried the bus ride test yet, I' testing them with an electric fan/heater that is noisy as hell. I can tell you that the noise isolation is at best moderate, not as strong as I would like it to be. I think that a more expensive model from a professional manufacturer such as Shure is best (but it would cost something like 5 times more...)
The sound clarity is NICE and the frequency response range is amazing for a commercial headphone. I don't know what to say, but they aren't very exciting. I own a pair of Senheisser Most people will definitely enjoy them. Also, these are not linear headphones, they do present a bit of coloring, such as slightly deeper than usual bass, which most people enjoy though. They are super portable, light, and the plug is angled 90 degrees which makes it perfect for iPods and such. The cord is thin, so it might suffer after a year's use, I'm afraid.
I saw some people ranked it as "not loud". Whoever said that is destined to deafness. These things are loud enough. At 10%-15% of my iPod touch's volume bar, I can't hear myself typing in the computer, nor the electric fan/heater I recommend them if your are just looking for off the shelf product that performs well.
