Panasonic RP HTX7
We review a lot of headphones here at CNET and are always on the lookout for models that deliver a lot of bang for the buck. The RP-HTX7s fall into that category -- especially if you can get them for $30, their current low price online (note: you have to add them to your cart at Amazon to get that price). Needless to say, you can't expect the world from $30 headphones, but if you're on a tight budget and still want something that sounds good, this set will certainly fit the bill.

The good: The Panasonic RP-HTX7s are affordable entry-level over-the ear headphones that fit comfortably, are relatively lightweight, and sound very good for the money. They also don't leak sound, and their retro styling is more hit than miss.
The bad: They're slightly brash; there's no integrated microphone for making cell phone calls.
The bottom line: While their sound and design may not appeal to everyone, the Panasonic RP-HTX7s are excellent entry-level over-the-ear headphones that are a good bargain.
