Good headphones, Description is wrong, you don't get extension cable.,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Panasonic RP-HTX7-RS Ryan Sheckler Signature Headphones (Electronics)The people that are saying these headphones are as good as the more expensive ones must be tone deaf or something. They are good headphones but are not worth more than what they cost ~$40. I got mine for around $21 so they are a bargain at that price. Sound quality is good for most people, the headphones do not isolate outside noise as you might imagine, you can easily hear what's going on around you when the volume is low. These do not come with the extension cable so you'll need to buy an extension if you plan to use these with anything other than a portable MP3 player cable is only 4ft enough to go from your head to your waist. These are also very light, which makes them feel cheap but perfect for portable use. They also seem very delicate with the thin metal wires and plastic construction, but I can't judge on that as I've only had them for a few days now. Bottom line if you are looking for audiophile sound quality and something that feels like it's built well spend the money on the expensive stuff. If you want a good set of headphones you won't feel bad about abusing, letting your kids use them or losing them then get these, perfect for work.

I purchased mine several months ago and an extension cable was included. Perhaps Panasonic no longer includes them??

Luckily I'm 4 feet tall, so I can even put my Ipod in my Kangaroo shoe's pocket.

A few days, aren't you suppose to "burn" head phones in for a couple days before they get to full quality?

That's widely disputed. If the "burn in" for headphones exists at all, then it does at audiophile levels, which these most definitely are not.

I didn't get the extension cable either. Amazon said I can return for an exchange (what are the chances they'll get it right this time?) or they will send me a $6.86 credit for the missing accessory (not really enough to buy another cable) or I can just return them and get my money back (what about my time?). I specifically bought these to use with my computer (not a lap-top) and need the cable so I don't have to lean over while watching the screen. It seems like they have things mixed-up in their warehouse. I will post a review once I get it all resolved. Other than this annoyance I love the headphones and don't really feel like sending them back just to be without headphones again. They need to make sure the product description matches the product, it seems only a few people are having this problem or maybe most people just don't care.

Thanks for that info. I'm actually grabbing AKG K701's as my monitor headphones, and these I'm just using for casual listening on the go. Having a set that isn't noise cancelling allows me to listen to my music and still hear what's around me.

In product features, it says there is a microphone with these. I don't see a mention of it in the reviews I've read. Does it in fact have one on the cord?
