Panasonic recently introduced a set of noise-canceling headphones, dubbed Slimz.

The RP-HC101 Slimz headphones feature a housing that reportedly measures 0.5-inch wide and weighs 3 ounces. A single AAA alkaline battery provides 54 hours of playback time, according to the company. Features include an inside neodymium magnet, 83 percent noise reduction and a frequency response of 18Hz to 24kHz.

A controller enables users to adjust the volume and switch off the noise-canceling feature without removing the foldable headphones. It also comes with a carrying pouch and aircraft plug adaptor. They are scheduled for release this month for a $99.99 suggested retail.
