The RP-HT21 is about as dull and basic as you get, but it's really cheap and sounds good for its ultralow price.

The good: Panasonic's very inexpensive RP-HT21 on-ear headphones are lightweight, fairly comfortable, seem sturdy enough, and sound quite decent for their low price.
The bad: The headphones have a generic design, don't fold up, and their thicker, reinforced L-shaped plug may not be compatible with certain smartphone cases. They also leak sound.
The bottom line: As far as really inexpensive headphones go, you're not going to do too much better than the Panasonic RP-HT21s.
