Panasonic RP-HD605N Headphones review: The Bose QC35’s cheaper cousin

Panasonic’s entry into noise-canceling headphones is surprisingly great.

If you own a pair of noise-canceling headphones, there’s a really good chance that they’re made by either Sony or Bose. These two companies have dominated this market with products like the WH1000XM3 and QC35 II, and in an attempt to undercut these two giants, Panasonic decided to enter the ring with its more affordable RP-HD605N headphones.
