Tour**


The Panasonic RP-HD1200s are a set of closed-back, over-ear headphones with a plastic design. They have soft, leather-printed padding on the band and ear cups.

The ear cups themselves will fold up and into the band area, to make the headphones easier to transport.

The headphones' cable is removeable. Rather than screwing in, the plug has two tabs on it: you simply insert the plug and twist it to lock it in place.

Below you'll see the headphones on our head and torso simulator (HATS). If you think he looks dashing with these headphones on, perhaps you will enjoy them.

In The Box


In the headphones' box, you'll find the headphones themselves, a 1/4-inch adapter, and a leather pouch for storage.

 

**Durability**     (*7.00**)*


The headphones seem to be pretty durable. They're very plasticky, but it isn't cheap plastic. While the headphones will probably show signs of wear and tear after a while, it's unlikely they'll break easily. The cord guards are robust and will keep the internal wires safe.  Even if the cord was to somehow fray, you can simply detatch and replace it. The only other durability concern is the folding ear cups. Although the feature is nice for storage, moving parts tend to break down faster than nonmoving ones.

 

 

**Aesthetics**     (*6.00**)*


The Panasonic Technics RP-DH1200s aren't a great-looking set of headphones, but they aren't ugly either. They have some elements of design to them, and they'll look better than some shlubbby set of cheap on-ears. What they lack, however, are the signs of good craftsmanship, like an exposed metal band: they look really plasticky.
