    Bang-for-your-buck sound you just have to hear to believe. The Panasonic RP-HT21 headphones combine a high-quality listening experience with portability and lightweight comfort—and at a price that’s easy on your budget. An XBS port pumps up the bass while a wide headband and foam-cushioned earpads keeps you comfy. Perfect for grab-and-go listening, the RP-HT21 headphones are ideal to keep next to your computer, in your laptop case or in a backpack along with your portable music device.

    Lightweight Open-air Design

    The RP-HT21 tips the scales at a feather-light 1.2 oz. so you might just forget you have them on. A generous 4.5 ft. cord threads comfortably through clothing and bags and reaches the computer across your desk.



    XBS Port for Increased Bass Response

    An XBS port magnifies low-frequency sound, delivering full, robust bass similar to what

    you’d hear in higher-priced headphones and brings alive your favorite dance tunes or action movies.

    Wide Headband and Cushioned Earpads

    A wide, ergonomic headband and foam-cushioned earpads feel secure yet never intrusive, while providing hours of listening comfort.


    30mm Diameter Drivers and Neodymium Magnets

    Despite their demure profile, the RP-HT21 delivers clear, natural sounding

    mids and highs along with resonant bass powered by 30mm diameter drivers, neodymium magnets and 16Hz - 22kHz frequency response.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing Value If youre someone who likes heavy bass music like i do and want to go easy on your wallet, then this is for you. Sound does leak a bit and it's not noise-cancelling. Ive been using it for over three years continuously. One of the best things ive ever bought. September 11, 2016
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Great headphones I use these with my portable CD player, and they are great. They're lightweight, comfortable, and the sound quality is great, too. July 9, 2016
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent super lightweight headphones These are best of breed, but you must realize what you are getting. These are inexpensive light, foam pad headphones, that sound great for something only weighing a few ounces and costing very little.. Looks a lot like dollar store headphones, but Panasonic does not make junk. Perfect general purpose headphones for general listening. Don't expect any significant noise isolation. Just nice sounding, balanced headphones. May 6, 2016
    Rated 5 out of 5 by SImple and reliable heaphones These headphones have a basic design and are very lightweight and comfortable. The sound quality is adequate and the price is right. May 5, 2016
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Best headphones:) I got this for my son and he is so happy with everything about them:) I would 100% buy these:) May 4, 2016
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Great value Perfect for iPads and other electronics for kids. Lightweight, comfortable. May 3, 2016
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing low cost headphones Ok, I'm going to be honest. I bought these because they were not expensive and my kids needed a headset to let them hear their computer games without blasting the living room. I wasn't expecting much, just the ability to hear the sounds. However, I was very amazed to find that the sound was very clear, the bass strong and the headset was actually COMFORTABLE to wear, even though they are not the expensive set. Now, it is true these are NOT top of the line. They do not do any noise cancelling, however, they produce a very clear sound for music and speech from the computer, which is exactly what I wanted.
