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 4.7 out of 5 by 13 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by VALUE BUY Look and feel sturdy. Workable cord length. Reliable basic sound. Comfortable to wear. Excellent value for what it does and how it sounds. November 29, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by headphones I like my headphones, no problems so far. They are lightweight, easy to use, and I like the long cord. I would suggest it to others. Thank. September 24, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by exactly what I expected I had purchased this before for my ipod to use at the gym. The wire insulation broke through first, then the wire itself. But the price is right so I ordered two more, But I am pretty hard on it! I did speak to a representative to ask if there was one with a thicker more durable cord. She recommended one but I checked and it would not fit the ipod. I don't think she understood that ipods take a different size connection from a standard stereo. September 8, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good Value for a fair price Since everything is overpriced, these days (and consumers seem to misunderstand the concepts of supply and demand, these stand out as a good value. If you have a child that you allow to listen to movies using earphones, these are a good value. After my grandchild ruined my valued earphones, these became the perfect choice. There, of course are no noise-cancelling features but, you'll be able to afford the child breaking them at their weakest point (as is the case with all wired earphones: at the wire connection at the ear or at the plug that always gets stretched at the jack. I purchased two, knowing that the price will never be cheaper and the children will probably break another. May 30, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Couldn't have asked for a better transaction! I found this item quickly and appreciate the ease in ordering. It shipped immediately and works beautifully. Thank you! May 7, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great value for money Great value for money. I have several pairs of these and they have never failed me. They aren't top of the line headphones but you can't beat the price. April 5, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Everyday headphones I have about 10 pair of various types of headphones or ear buds in my home or at work, these are great for the price. Inexpensive but not cheap and sound great compared to other brands and similar styles. Kind of a go to set of phones to start your collection. April 5, 2015
