Panasonic RP-HT227 Monitor Headphones with In-cord Volume Control

The Panasonic RP-HT227 headphones combine high-quality sound with supreme comfort to achieve unmatched value. 28 millimeter drivers combined with neodymium magnets deliver crisp, precise mids and highs while an XBS port powers up full, robust bass. Lightweight construction and soft, padded earcups give the RP-HT227 its comfortable feel but they’re snug enough to stay put when the music gets you moving. A long, 6.6-foot cord threads comfortably through clothing and bags and its foldable design lets you neatly pack them for travel or storage. A standard-sized plug adapter is included.

28 millimeter Diameter Drivers and Neodymium Magnets

The RP-HT227 delivers clear, natural-sounding mids and highs along with full, resonant bass powered by 28millimeter diameter drivers, neodymium magnets and a 14Hz - 24kHz frequency response.


XBS Port for Increased Bass Response

A built-in XBS port magnifies low-frequency sound, delivering powerful, robust bass similar to what you’d hear in higher-priced headphones and brings alive your favorite dance tunes or action movies.

Lightweight, Comfortable Design

The RP-HT227 features feather-light yet sturdy construction with soft, padded earcups that keep you comfortable, even after hours of listening.

Foldable Design

The RP-HT227 headphones feature a collapsible, foldable design that lets you stow them neatly in a laptop bag or backpack.


Reversible Housing for Single-Side Monitoring

The RP-HT227 features flip-away earcups for free-style and single-side monitoring—perfect for when you want to hear both the upcoming track and the current speaker output when beatmatching.

Plug Adapter Included

A convenient plug adapter is included so you can not only connect to portable audio mini jacks but also home systems with standard-sized connectors.

Long, 6.6-Foot Cord for Extra Convenience

A generous, 6.6-foot cord easily reaches across the desk to plug into your computer and is long enough to thread through a jacket, bag, or backpack.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good headphones Light, snug fit on ear, I wish it had full stop pause skip function but for the price I can't complain, they fold up nicely too

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Inexpensive Yet Good I needed a pair of headphones without noise cancelling or built-in mic. I saw these while searching on their website. The only dissatisfying item I have with them is they aren't over-the-ear, they're on-the-ear. I was hoping to get over-the-ear style to block out outside sounds when using them. They do a god job, and with the built-in volume control, I can control the loudness without having to change other sound settings. They do fold up into a fairly compact size. I don't use them every day but I have used them a few times now and they seem to work fine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value These headphones are excellent value for the price. Ideal for TV and general listening. The inline volume control is a real bonus.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Loved these, until they kept breaking I have had this set of headphones at my work desk for listening to the radio during the day. The compact design was nice, as it doesn't take up much room on the desk, and I liked having the inline volume control on the cord, which always was handy for when those too-loud commercials pop up on Pandora. The earpieces (sorry, don't know the technical term) were comfortable for extended listening. The ultimate quality of the headphones, however, was lacking. Both of the earpieces were attached to the main frame of the headset by a single plastic notch. The first one broke shortly after my initial purchase; the second one broke just a year later. I'd like to get another set of these, but it seems like they should have lasted for a lot longer than they have with the user being a desk jockey.
