The RP-HC720-K Noise-Canceling Stereo Headphones from Panasonic offer high-quality audio and excellent noise cancellation capabilities in a comfortable design.

            Noise cancellation pretty effective. Tight fit might get a little uncomfortable.

            Great Sound But Poor Comfort

              Comments about Panasonic RP-HC720-K Noise-Canceling Stereo Headphones:

              I originally purchased these for use in a room where the overhead vent was very loud. As it turns out by the time I received them I no longer had to be in the noisy room so I never tested the noise-cancelling feature of the headphones. I used them at home where it was quiet already. The sound is amazing. The main problem is that the headphones put pressure on the ears and they become uncomfortable to wear very quickly.

              Another problem is that nine months later I needed the noise-cancellation for a noisy server room I had to work in. When the noise-cancellation switch on the left earphone was moved up the music stopped. After inserting a fresh new AAA battery the noise-cancellation did not work at all although in the off position the headphones played albeit without noise cancellation.

              When I looked to return them to Panasonic I noticed that the warranty is only 90 days, not one year as I was hoping for.

              They still are excellent sounding headphones for about 15 minutes before they start becoming too uncomfortable to wear.

              I was going to give these headphones one star but the sound quality pushed it to 2 stars.

                Comments about Panasonic RP-HC720-K Noise-Canceling Stereo Headphones:

                Great noise cancelation and acoustics for the price! They run on a single AAA battery, but the noise cancellation can be switched off, unlike many higher-end models. Sound is solid either way. The build of the head set is a little bulky, definitely not a low profile headset, but they look good. I definitely worry about their durability as a lot of the key components are plastic though the head band is reinforced with a strip of metal. The headband meets the ear cup hinge at a pretty sharp angle, which I have heard can increase breakage. All-in-all, I wanted over-the-ear headphones with noise cancellation and great sound for a good price and I feel like I got a great deal. I would definitely recommend them for NC headphones.

                I bought these headphones as a replacement for a pair of AblePlanets I had. They do the job quite well but over a long flight they are not as comfortable as some others out there and I find the metal sliding part can lead to a slight "rattle" if you lean against things. But dedintely good vaue overall.

                Great product - I travel a lot and these headphones do a good job of noise-canceling and produce quality sound. They are a bit bulky for travel, but otherwise a good buy.
