The Panasonic RP-HT260 model is a low-end headphone set designed to imitate more expensive, professional style headphones. Because the headphones are meant to provide professional quality to average users, the targeted audience includes music audiophiles and casual users of all ages. The HT260 large fabric form earpads are equipped with a closed-ear design that somewhat covers the outside region of the ears and eliminates most of the surrounding ambient noise; the heaphones also let in ambient noise if used with the swivel/single-side monitoring functionality. The RP-HT260 headphones include large size, 40mm, diameter drive units, created to omit powerful bass and clear treble sound. The RP-HT260 model also includes additional features such as a reinforced plastic headband, a nickel mini stereo plug for increased conductivity and high quality sound output, a 9.8ft/ 3.0m extended length cord for extra movement range, rare Neodymium earth magnets, a 6.3mm stereo jack adapter for full professional support, and swivel, and single side monitoring/listening functionality for DJ's and casual users who love to hear both in-ear and ambient noise simultaneously. The Panasonic RP-HT260 model headphone set was released in June 7, 2008 and has an MSRP of $19.99, which is listed on the official Panasonic website.

I bought a Sony headset... The worst ever in my life and will not buy any product at all from them and this was even cheaper,more comfortable, larger and with far more range and bass depth and treble crisp even than a pair of Senheiser I bought about 3 years ago , Totally recommendable ,a five star product even as cataloged as a low end product its quality stands above competitors on the same price range and even some above . I am new Panasonic Audio adept from now on.

These Panasonic are really good for the price. The lows are very very pleasant but it lacks a bit of highs. I prefer their sound to all of Yamaha headphones, some AKGs and some Sonys
