Reasons Why You Should Avoid Them

  • All plastic build of Panasonic RP-HD605N-T doesn’t look premium or feel durable as some other better-built over-ear headphones and hinges seem to break quite easily
  • RP-HD605N Panasonic are not recommended for people with large heads or who wear glasses, may be a bit uncomfortable due to strong clamping force
  • When using Panasonic RP-HD605NE-K with highest level of noise canceling, they have an audible static due to the digital processing of ANC

  • Call quality of Panasonic RP-HD605NE-T is below average due to the fact that the microphones catch a lot of background noise, feel thin, noticeably subdued and lacks detail
  • Bose QuietComfort 35 ii is a strong competitor with better noise cancellation, much better build quality and more features
  • No companion app support for optimization, such as ANC level selection, EQ adjustment or creating music profiles like other high-end competing headphones
  • Such wireless noise-canceling headphones tend to accumulate heat due to synthetic leather padding on the headband and inside the ear cups. It is important if you are already in a warm environment.
