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 4.8 out of 5 by 18 reviewers.
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.

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
