Panasonic RP-HT225E-K Entry Level Monitor Headphones

Really quiet disappointed with these. The good points are the design, which seems quiet solid and sturdy, and the super long cable (if that's something you want). They are also very comfortable. But the sound quality is really poor - muddy and distant midrange, anaemic bass and a total absence of sound stage. I know monitoring headphones are supposed to have a flat response but they should at least reveal some detail and these are the opposite of that - things are buried and indistinct. And they don't really shut out external noise that well. Oh well, you can't expect much more for not much more than a tenner I suppose, hence three stars instead of two.

No this isn't Seconds Out, not is it a Gabriel-era "Live" performance. Nevertheless it's got some great performances on it. The version of Turn it on Again is excellent and Abacab comes across really well live. I could do without Afterglow and Follow You Follow Me for the billionth time, but the Duke material is great.
As an album it feels really like just a compilation of live tracks rather than a recording of a gig - it's fairly disjointed in that way, but it captures an interesting period in the bands live history, when they had made the final transition from 70s prog rock band to 80s mainstream "radio friendly" band. I'm not a fan of their 80s output, but this album is a good chance to hear how they blended the old and the new.
