"Panasonic's RP-HSC200 are the best sports in-ears in this price range thats great for using outdoors or in the gym.
The Sennheise CX275s is a great if you're looking for a simpler and more versatile earphone that you can use with your mobile phone."
Panasonic has grown in past many years as one of the most popular and trusted brands in the consumer headphone market. The brand continues to amaze us with well-built pairs that do not burn a hole in your pocket. Panasonic's RP-HSC200 is an in-ear earphone that is meant to be worn in a clip-on style. The sports type fit makes these in-ears are ideal during sports sessions and workouts at the gym.
The body has been engineered from soft but very durable plastic. The in-ears have a cutting-edge, sporty design, and the silver accent on the ear clips lends these earphones a nice charm. The earbuds are embossed with R and L respectively that makes indication easier. Thus, you can get to your music faster. The RP-HSC200 is available in just two colours- White with silver and black with silver. Most importantly, the in-ears are extremely lightweight, making then comfortable and ideally suited to use while running, cycling, in the gym.
INNOVATIVE CLIP-ON SPORTS DESIGN VS IN-EAR FITThe Sennheiser CX 275s comes in a design that features a simple, lightweight design, with dark, metallic gray earpieces and black ridged accents. The body has been clearly built to look clean, without attracting too much of attention.
The Panasonic RP-HSC200 sadly does not pack along with it any accessories. However, we would go on to say that we did not really find the need for any. Since the in-ear come in with clip-on design, the ear-buds perfectly go inside your canal. Besides, Pansonic has used very soft silicon ear buds that lend you the best comfort. Noise too is aided due to the great fit feature. The HSC200 very effectively attenuates external unwanted noise.
A feature that is most sort after, in sports in-ears, the Panasonic HSC200 is sweat and water resistant. You can be assured of a moist free music session at the gym or when on a run.
STAY DRY WITH SWEAT AND WATER RESISTANT PANASONIC RP-HSC200The Sennheiser CX 275s comes with three pairs of black silicone ear tips, a cable adapter, and a small black carry pouch. Although the CX275s has been touted to have a universal remote, these in-ears may not be compatible with older devices.
A small complain would be the soundstage. The soundstage is not too wide and spacious. It tends to take away alittle from these power packed in-ears. Overall, the Panasonic RP-HSC200 solid packed pair of earphones that comes with its own set of limited flaws.
THE SENNHEISER CX 275S PUMPS OUT RELIVTIVELY MORE BASS THAN THE PANASONIC RP-HSC200
When it comes to CX 275s sound, these in-ears provide ample boom, that too without distortion, even at high volumes. The CX 275s does manage to maintain a decent balance between lows and highs to some extent.
Sometimes, however, there is a strange mid to high boosting. In specific areas, the highs are so boosted that there is a strange mix of elements that stand out dramatically.
Certain electronic percussive sounds can seem far too bright, even a bit harsh or tinny. You will find that these in-ears may get muffled in the pursuit of pumpy audio delivery.
Bottom line, this is the earphone for people who enjoy the added sheen in their music.
The Panasonic RP-HSC200 is well balanced with some lively bass and comes with a 3-button universal remote, so if you prefer clarity with bass and are looking for in-ears to use outdoors, then go for these.
For those that prefer Sennheiser branding and audio with relatively higher bass, then the CX2752s is a better option.

|Our Verdict|| |
Great value for money, from a Chi-Fi manufacturer, with great build and design.
A 3 year warranty, and the best in class build quality. Our favourite earphones for under Rs. 2000
Certainly an all-round performer with a pronounced bass and treble. But with dissapointing 1 year warranty,
Bass that'll feel almost like an earthquake, but will tend to overpower the rest of the sound.
