  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

First off, I love Nixon products....

However? These headphones are crap. They haven't died on me yet? BUT its only day 1! If i even slightly touch the input jack and/or bend the input cord from phone -> headphone, it cuts out... Now i understand wear and tear on headphones. I go through a pair of 'em once every 2 months? BUt the first day!? I expected this from Skullcandy... but from Nixon!?

They fit the same , sound the same ... they're headphones ... BuT do they last the same? Heyyyy'll NO

dont believe the Hype

    after less than a month the cover feel off one of the ear bubs, upon replacement the dealer advised that it happens all the time. Sound is good as long as the cord isnt hitting anything, cause that goes straight through. Thought Nixon had nailed it with these, on the specs and how good they look but after several months, i wish i spent a bit more and got something better. sorry Nixon.

    What were they thinking

      I'll give them the courtesy of saying they're headphones look very stylish. But the fact that they don't fit at all, whatsoever, even aftertrying all 3 rubber cups. That really doesn't make me want to use them, much less purchase them. And the fact that they sound absolutely terrible. And I mean TERRIBLE! I don't know who decided these were ready for production, but I think they should be fired on the spot. Much better off using the stock iPod/iPhone headphones than these JUNKERS!!!
      I'm writing them a complaint today in hopes to get my money back and then putting them in my Blendtec blender.
      Will it blend? That is the question.

      NIXON: you really F'd this one up, big time

      great! but..

        they really are great. sturdy cord, they go in ear deep enough that you can fit them under your hat or helmet w/out uncomfortable feeling. small enough that you can roll em up into your biggest complaint is that the cord dies pretty soon. i already went through 4 pairs of these. they go right near the jack, after 4-6 months depending on use, it will start losing left or right channel (you can than move the cord around to bring it back) and than soon after they die..its frustrating because if the cord area was replaceable, buds could be saved.

        super overpriced.

          It kind of blows my mind how well people are reviewing these buds. I can only assume that their review is based only their appearance. When I first got these buds, I wrote a rash review about the great sound quality and how cool they looked. However, I've now been using them for 3 months and, well, I'm not using them. I quickly found that the cord is AWFUL!!!!!!! for transmitting sound. I'm not talking about riding, I mean if you're sitting down at your computer and you breathe, the cord makes a ruffling sound. It's incredibly horrible. They are also useless for any form of exercise as the oversized bud simply doesn't fit the human ear (even with the multiple sizes of buds you get) and you must continuously push them in. Overall, you are most definitely paying for the Nixon name. I'll continue to buy their watches, but I'll look elsewhere for headphones. Please, don't waste your money. Skullcandy make more comfortable and equally stylin' buds, or for a similar price to these you can get a pair of Shures or Sennheisers, both of which blow them out of the water for sound and comfort.

          Absolute poo.

            Nixon made some great looking headphones, but I don't think they listened to them before they boxed them up. These things suck.

            The fit is good. I heard some people complaining about the headphones being to heavy, but I didn't find that to be a problem. They stayed in my ear just fine.

            The sound was pretty decent until I moved. The feedback from the cord brushing up against anything is absolutely horrendous, and LOUD. I'd use the stock apple buds before these. I hate the apple buds.

            These are going back.


              I bought these headphones because of the great reviews all over the net. While it's true they are well built, don't tangle, and have good speakers, BUT the cloth wrapped wires conduct external noise like wearing a doctor's stethescope. Anything the wires touch, including themselves, your face, clothing is transmitted up to the earbuds- LOUDLY! Good for listening as long as you sit completely still.

              Lightweight, Comfortable, and Stylish!!

                The new Nixon Wires have a GREAT fit, even though they seem a little larger than Skullcandy similar models. Sound quality on these is great, 8mm is surprisingly loud and clear! The cloth wire doesn’t get tangled as easily as the rubber-wire on most every other headphone, plus it adds a touch of class! The Wires are also super lightweight, which makes them almost unnoticed when you are wearing them on the hill or just around the town.

                Anyone know what the cord configuration...

                Anyone know what the cord configuration is? symmetrical Y, behind the neck or something else?
