Hi there, welcome to my blog.

What's this all about? Well, that's a question I'm probably not even qualified to answer. I guess it started off because I had nothing better to do, but turns out that I kind of like it. So when I'm not working for The Man I like to take pictures, make videos and write about whatever else might seem like a good idea at the time.

From dragon boating to mountain biking, to road trips and travels overseas - this is me trying to enjoy life. Clock out at 5, eat, drink and don't forget to smile a lot.

Went retro, found Panasonic RP-HTX7 headphones.

I'm not going to lie, I'm an impulse shopper - 100% of the time. If I like something I'll probably somehow convince myself that I actually need it. Don't get me wrong, I do my best to reason it out and I feel guilty about buying random stuff all the time, but I'll only usually buy stuff when it seems like I'm getting a good deal (at least that's what I tell myself).

Anyhow, in my quest to listen to more music in 2010, I picked up a pair of these bad boys as my new everyday throw around women headphones. They cost $40 (shipped) from my favorite place the eBay, but be warned! You better watch your ass though because I almost shit a chimpanzee when I found out that they are selling a lot of these knock offs all over the place. Believe it or not, there's a huge market (?) for fake headphones out there, and people report buying them off Amazon and even Target and getting knock offs, falling apart and sounding like crap. I was pretty nervous but once I got them, verified they were legit and was pretty happy that I didn't have to rage all over that seller's eBay feedback form.

I'm not going to write a review because I'm no audiophile but I will tell you that the build quality is pretty solid, they're comfortable and they actually sound great (probably a little better after burn in). Don't get me wrong, they're no Sennheisers but they're also less than a fraction of the price. Win!

FYI they are actually baby blue but I just didn't care enough failed to make any adjustments before or after taking the pictures, lol.

Hi, could you please tell me the seller name? I really want a pair of these but I'm afraid of fakes.

You can e-mail me at dovoxove@hotmail.com if you don't want to post it here.

I bought it from a seller named hk_big_brand. It was $37.98 CAD with free shipping. Hope that helps!

I can't find the seller, would you mind giving me the link?

I tried searching that seller's id and the old link but it doesn't look like they're available anymore.

If you search 'panasonic retro' though it returns a lot of hits for the headphones though.
