Tour


The Panasonic RP-HTX7P-RS headphones are a set of over-ears sponsored by professional skateboarder, Ryan Sheckler. You can see his signature on the left ear cup in the picture below.

Clearly you're aware of who Ryan Sheckler is, care about his choice of headphones, and have rushed out to buy a baker's dozen, great gross, chiliad, or some other comically obscure unit of measurement we had to look up on Wikipedia. Hogshead.

The ear cups are basically hollow ovals, which aren't particularly soft. You can remove the cup padding, though, which puts you a few screwdriver turns away from the headphones' interior.

Below you can see what you've always wanted to see but never had the guts to create for yourself: a head and torso simulator wearing Ryan Sheckler headphones.

In The Box


In the RP-HTX7P-RS' box you'll just find the headphones. That's it.

 

**Durability**     (*6.50**)*


These headphones seem sturdy enough, but they do have a lot of durability concerns, many of which center around the band. By having a curved rod make up the bottom portions of the band, as opposed to a solid piece of metal or plastic, these headphones seem more likely to break from getting twisted too far. The rod seems sturdy enough, but we definitely felt the tension in the band.

 

 

**Aesthetics**     (*6.00**)*


We're sure there's a crowd of young-uns out there who know who Ryan Sheckler is and will love having his signature soullessly stamped on their headphones. For those who don't care, the headphones have a slightly better than average design. They're simple, but we like a simple design with a splash of color. They don't look expensive or particularly elegant, but they look better than the average set of boring over-ears.
