Panasonic ErgoFit RP-HJE120
A shiny new pair of headphones make a great gift for any music lover. And while the holidays are all about spending time with close friends and family, we all need a little escape from an awkward family gathering every now and then. We're here to guide you in the right direction.
Here we've gathered a list of our favorite inexpensive headphones in all forms: earbuds, over-ears, on-ears, noise-canceling, and more. Whether you're shopping for a loved one or need a cheap way to get your own aural bliss, you're sure to find something you like.
First up: the Panasonic ErgoFit RP-HJE120. I don't want to raise your expectations too much, but whether you're in the habit of losing things or breaking $30 to $40 earphones (Skullcandy, I'm looking at you), or just looking for lightweight earphones to use at the gym, you should definitely give these a try.

The good: The Panasonic ErgoFit RP-HJE120 Earbud Headphones are really inexpensive and sound decent for their measly price. They also offer a comfortable fit.
The bad: The thin cord has a tendency to tangle easily (especially if you stick the headphones in a pocket). They don't seem incredibly durable, and there's no integrated microphone for cell phone calls.
The bottom line: For under $10, you'll be hard-pressed to find in-ear headphones that sound better and are more comfortable than the Panasonic ErgoFit RP-HJE120s.
