Our Verdict

These Panasonic's are great on paper with an innovative battery pack, but are held back by compressed and tiring sound

For

  • Innovative battery pack idea, effective noise isolation

Against

  • Tiring sound, compressed

With in-ear designs available at this price that offer exceptional noise-isolation – think Shure's SE110s – it's strange to find a noise-cancelling pair, which add a cigarette-lighter sized battery pack (not pictured) to a snug fit to shield your tunes from outside intrusion.

Odd, then, but fairly effective –boosted by a neat volume slider. Sadly, however, the sound is compressed and tiring – you can buy better
