Durability and Reliability test - Passed. (Four years of daily use and still functioning)
Been using this since 2012 during the day while I work to listen to music. These are the only earphones I use that do have not an in-line microphone because it is not needed for my office work. This gets rolled and tossed into my bag every weekday, yet.. no tears, no loose wires, earpads in tact. Fully functioning. Sound still crisp and clear. It can definitely stand the mild abuse.
Comfort test - Passed.
The fit is perfect for my ears - very ergonomic as the bud rests nicely in the concha (bowl-shaped cavity) of the ear, cradled by the intertragal notch - like a snug hug. The earpads insert easily into place for a gentle cushioned feel, loosely 'locking' into place very naturally. I've worn these for hours at a time without any aching of the ear or hint of tension so the comfort is definitely there. I have also used them while walking, running, cleaning, and they rarely fall out - thank goodness! It's so bloody annoying when earbuds slip out!
Sound test - Passed.
Let's be real. Don't expect Sennheiser quality audio on a earphone that costs less than popcorn at the movie theaters. But also don't brush it off either. The sound quality is rather good. To the average user, one most likely won't pick up the nuiances between amazing full bass, mid, or treble. These are definitely not bass-enhanced so don't expect these to pump out your favorite bass-powered beats to your liking, but they will do an acceptable job at nice highs and clear mids.
Because of the fit of the earpad into the ear canal, it does block out some noise. Because I do use these for work, I normally just keep one of these earbuds in for the music while still being attentive within the environment. These earphones also do a decent job at keeping the audio 'localized', meaning if you are jamming music at full blast, the sound will leak from the earphones, but not too much. I can be listening to music at a somewhat loud scale and no one around me can hear it at all.
I am an android user and faithful Samsung Galaxy series smart phone user. I have the old Samsung Galaxy S2 earphones and the new Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge earphones to compare comfort/ergo fit to. You'll see in my picture the stark difference in overall shape of the earbud from just three earphones. Yet despite my loyalty to Samsung Galaxy smartphones, the fit of their earphones are always terrible, even the latest S6 Edge earphone accessory. Here is why the fit and comfort of the humble Panasonic make my ears happier than most earpieces:
- See Samsung Galaxy S2 earphones. Nice soft silicone gel earpad but poor earbud shape that doesn't 'lock' into place with the natural shape of the outer ear. Thus, it frequently comes out like a loose, thick q-tip.
- See Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge earphones. Better quality silicone gel earpad that attempts to cushion the supposed natural shape of the ear canal entrance, but utterly fails for anyone with normal sized ears. Even with the smallest size gel earpads, the earphones frequently pop out and is very annoying. Not only that, the gel earpads frequently loosen from the buds itself and falls off. I got my S6 Edge summer of 2015 and I have already used all spare gel earpads + another set of replacement earpads (if you look closely at the photo, I had to resort to a Left earpad for my Right earbud because I had no more replacement earpads to use). I am now down to a single earpad and am giving up on these stupid earphones in general.
WORTH! Four years on a product that works on a daily and fits great for price of $6-$10? No brainer. Incredibly reliable and good quality.
For the price, the sound quality of these in-ears is fantastic. When I let a friend use them once, he immediately responded with "whoa." For $10 earbuds the sound is very impressive and probably suitable for most people. These headphones have a balanced sound with enough clarity to deliver the basic framework of whatever music you're listening to, plus a little bit more. If you're mostly a passive listener and want cheap earbuds you won't have to worry about if they get lost or stolen, these are a great buy.
When I eventually upgraded to more expensive earbuds, these ones were able still to hold a candle to the competition, although with further comparison the Panasonic's are slightly "blattier" and "fuzzier" than higher-quality, more expensive options. On their own, though, these earbuds sound significantly better than others in their price range, even rivaling some costing around $25.
I used these earbuds as my primary listening medium for about nine months and they withstood a lot of abuse. Every day I would take them to school, usually stuffing them in the smaller pocket of my backpack and carrying them wherever I went. For a long time, they stood strong. However, I pulled the buds out of my ears one day and the right side wasn't all together. In fact, the right speaker had split off from the rest of the earbud's housing. However, the wire to the speaker was still intact and after I gently snapped the two pieces back together, both earbuds worked just the same. Unfortunately, I was long passed the ninety (90) day warranty for the headphones and there was nothing I could do to have them fixed. From then on, I have had to be careful when pulling the right bud from my ear, but besides that, nothing else has broken.
Now, these earbuds have long been replaced by more expensive ones with higher sound quality. Currently, I use them as my main running earbuds: these headphones are good enough to get me in the groove, but I wouldn't be too upset if they broke. So far, they have managed fairly well despite their earlier injuries and despite being sweated on a great deal. They still work just fine and sound exactly how they did when I first got them.
-Sound GREAT for the price
-Ergo fit (fits very well in your ears & helps you figure out which side is which)
-90 day warranty
-Thin shielding on the main cord
The Panasonic's also come with a mic and a pause/play button on the cord. It's also important to mention that these headphones are in-ears and fit pretty snugly in your ear, which I think helps block out sound and helps to keep the bud in place. For some people this could be uncomfortable and be a big negative for them.
Overall, the Panasonic RPTCM125's are great-sounding headphones for the price, which you can take around with you almost anywhere. They will withstand a lot of abuse but, sadly, are only covered under warranty for the first three months. Recommended for the listener who wants a pair of powerful headphones for cheap.
Changed my rating to better match my experience with the product.
My conclusions were that the 2XL Spoke were adequate, but a distant third place. While the 2XL had definitively better bass than the Skullcandy Ink'd, the 2XL's mids and highs were only adequate. The Skullcandy Jib completely blew the Scullcandy Ink'd away, with much better bass, mids and highs, I thought I found what I had been looking for, that my quest had ended. But there was still the Panasonic RP-HJE120 to listen to. I must say I had little expectation for these after listening to the Skullcandy Jib's. But what was this? Immediately the Panasonic's sounded impressive. After listening to them for a while, I listened to the Jib's again. I honestly preferred the cleaner sound of the Panasonic RP-HJE120, and the Ergo design was a plus, the fit was just so comfortable.
So there you have my layman's evaluation of these three headsets and my hands down recommendation for the Panasonic RP-HJE120 (I got the Blue, however, I very much doubt that your color choice will affect the sound).
I hope this helped.
