It’s about time for me to talk about this little guy that sold more than 36k units on Amazon alone. Yes, I am talking about the Panasonic ErgoFit. Being a bit more specific, the RP-HJE120-K
This is by far the cheapest model I’ve ever reviewed here, and may be the cheapest I’ll ever do here, so, let’s see what you get for $10 dollars.
Well, we cannot expect a Westone w40 level of quality, but trust me, the ErgoFit do the job, and to go further, better than your stock earbuds for sure.
The bass on the ErgoFit can and will surprise you, so big bass fans will love these, another interesting aspect is the deep lows that are definitely present playing a big role to provide a detailed song. The mids and highs are not that good, but for 10 you have to understand that you won’t have everything perfect.
There is not much to say about the Ergofit design, the housing is made of plastic, the cables are thin and seem extremely fragile, but they are still better than some $20 models out there. One good point is the wide variety of colors to choose from: black, blue, green, orange, pink, red, silver and violet. There are no accessories and only one pair of replacement ear tips.
Accessories and Extras
Well, I’m not sure why I did this section, because this version of the ErgoFit has no extras, however for another $6 or $7 dollars you buy the TCM-125 version that has a microphone and remote control for calls.
- Drive Unit – 9mm
- Impedance – 16 ohm
- Cord Lenght – 3.6 ft
- Plug – Nickel
- Frequency Response (Hz – kHz) – 20-20
- Sensitivity – 96
Pros and Cons
- Extremely cheap
- Good bass
- Deep low end
My rating: 8 out of 10

If you have no money right now to buy a decent pair, make yourself a favor and invest the money on the Panasonic Ergofit. You will get a glimpse of the quality a good earbud can reach, and believe me, you will never return to your stock apple pods or whatever they call it these days. If you can spare $10 dollars, and are tired of your crap earbuds, buy it, and welcome to the wonderful Sound land!
Hope you enjoyed the review,
