Review of Panasonic RP-HNJ10 in-ear headphones

In the glory days of cassette players, Panasonic competed with Sony in the number and popularity of the models available, at least in Europe, with mixed success. Today, when the number of well-known manufacturers of audio players is approaching two dozen, the Panasonic line of players has a much smaller number of models.

Be that as it may, the range of Panasonic headphones has remained at least at the same level, and even expanded significantly: today it has more than a dozen models.

Panasonic RP-HNJ10 is one of the recent additions to the company's lineup. The model is a "classic" in-ear headphones designed for use with portable audio equipment. The two main distinguishing features of the HNJ10 are the combination of headphones with a cord for carrying a player or phone around the neck, as well as special fasteners on the body of the headphones themselves, designed to fix them on a cord when they are not used for their intended purpose.

On the technical side, the headphones do not particularly stand out, but they are not outsiders either: the diameter of the HNJ10 speaker membrane is 13.5 mm, and the maximum input power is 40 mW.

Body and design

The body of the headphones is made of slightly rough rubberized plastic, quite soft and pleasant to the touch. If I'm not mistaken, they haven't come up with a special name for such a coating yet; in terms of tactile sensations, it's something between soft touch and the back panel of a Sony Ericsson T68i phone. The quality of workmanship does not cause any complaints, there are no visible defects.

The speaker grille is plastic, it is completely covered with holes of rather large diameter (you can see the speaker through them if you wish). The quality of its workmanship is also on top.

Physically, the headphones are made in the form of two interconnected parts connected by a flexible joint. A similar design serves to fix the headphones on a cord: each of the parts has a special protrusion that grabs the cable. The strength of the fixation provides an elastic joint.

The lace has a decent diameter and gives the impression of a good margin of safety. The same can be said about the hinge fastening. The signal cable that connects directly to the player is rather thin, but due to the fact that there is no load on it, this fact cannot be considered a disadvantage.

In the ears, the headphones sit tightly, with sudden movements they do not fall out. Relatively soft plastic allows you to do without foam pads that are prone to contamination and generally spoil the appearance of the headphones. If necessary, the headphones are easy to clean, say, with monitor wipes.

The design of the headphones does not shine with original ideas, but is not without a certain charm, primarily due to the unusual shape of the headphones and the material used. Panasonic offers this model in three colors: anthracite, white and blue. Thus, users can choose headphones according to their dressing style, which cannot be said about many other popular models, which, for example, do not look too harmonious with business attire.

Sound and usability

There is a certain limitation in using the NHS10: the device to which they will be connected must have an eyelet for attaching a lace, otherwise the design loses its meaning. Otherwise, no special requirements are imposed on the player, with the exception of a logically placed headphone jack. That is, a rather short cable may simply not reach the connector if it is located, say, on the bottom end of the case, and the attachment eye is on the top.

Otherwise, the headphones fully meet the stated functionality, namely, they ensure that the audio player is worn on a cord combined with the headphones. Attaching the earphones to the lanyard wire is secure enough to detach them, you need to make a purposeful effort. With sudden movements, the headphones “sit” on the cord like a glove, there are no complaints about them here.

The sound of the headphones causes ambivalent sensations. On the one hand, a high level of power input allows the headphones not to break into “wheezing” at maximum volume. At the same time, the level of the actual volume seems to be quite sufficient for the vast majority of mobile music lovers, with the possible exception of hardcore hard rock fans who spent half a life next to concert portals. On the other hand, the NHJ10's sound is based only on highs and mids, with almost no bass response. This sad fact allows us to conclude that the main target audience for the model developers is people who listen to the player during morning jogging or playing sports, when it is very handy to be able to fix the headphones on the cable, and the sound quality fades into the background, if only "loud and dynamic '.

Conclusions and impressions

Panasonic RP-NHJ10 are curious, first of all, with an unusual scheme for attaching a cord to a wire and a flexible articulation of two parts of the structure. The workmanship of all parts is at a high level and does not cause complaints. Unfortunately, in the field of sound, not everything is so rosy - it will hardly be possible for fans of bass-rich music to recommend the NHJ10. Most likely, the headphones will suit relatively unpretentious users who are more interested in ease of use and unusual design than in the quality of working out the entire frequency range.
