Pana­sonic states that the BTS50 and BTS30 have been “de­vel­oped for ath­letes who want to en­joy mu­sic even dur­ing in­tense work­outs”.

The head­phones sport 3D-Flex Sports Clips ear hook loops, made from flex­i­ble ma­te­rial that can be bent into the de­sired shape, while “a flat ca­ble is used, which fits com­fort­ably be­hind the ears, dra­mat­i­cally re­duc­ing touch noise and de­liv­er­ing clear, crisp, dy­namic sound”.

Quick Charge via a sup­plied USB ca­ble de­liv­ers 70 min­utes of use from a 15-minute bat­tery charge, while a full charg­ing pro­vides up to six hours of play­back.

The BTS50 is equipped with 12 mm drivers and the BTS30 9 mm drivers, sup­port­ing aptX and AAC, while Blue Edge LEDs on the edge sec­tions of the BTS50 “add style and vis­i­bil­ity when worn at night”.

The BTS50 is wa­ter re­sis­tant, decked out with an IPX5-rated rugged, wa­ter­proof shield, and can be washed with wa­ter to re­move sweat and dirt, with the BTS30 also wa­ter re­sis­tant with an IPX4 rat­ing.

The BTS50 is avail­able in white and black, and the BTS30 white, black, yel­low and red.

Mean­while, Pana­sonic’s fold­able head­phones have a three-way fold­able de­sign, pro­vid­ing for space­sav­ing stor­age.

“All mod­els in­clude a neodymium mag­net to en­hance au­dio qual­ity,” Pana­sonic states. “The sleek RP-HF500 model fea­tures a hair­line aluminium fin­ish, 40 mm driver units for pow­er­ful sound, as well as a flat sound-en­hanc­ing ca­ble; while the ca­su­ally styled RP-HF300 and RP-HF100 de­liver crisp and clear sound at home or on the go with a 30 mm drive unit.

“The head­phones’ light weight makes them ideal for out­door use, and the flex­i­ble swivel de­sign folds to fit the size and shape of your bag. They are com­fort­able to wear for ex­tended use with soft ear-pads.”

Se­lected mod­els also have a mi­cro­phone on the cord sup­port­ing smart­phone calls, with the head­phones avail­able in black, white, blue and red.

Pana­sonic’s BTS50 head­phones are avail­able for a RRP of $199.95, and the BTS30 for a RRP of $149.95. Pana­sonic’s fold­able head­phone range starts at RRP $39.95.
