having already purchased the Nomadics and the Troopers, I was relieved when Nixon finally put something a bit lighter and more user friendly on the market. These sound just as good to me as the Troopers, however they are less conspicuous (but still manage to retain some of Noxn's understated, eye catching styling) and far nicer to use on an every day basis. A word of warning, the colours are bright, probably more so than some photos suggest. I have them in orange and they are quite a flourecent colour.
For their size I was pleasantly surprised. They pack a decent punch that was better than I expected, however they don't handle treble too well on my ipod when it's at it's highest volume. This is easily dealt with by urning the trble reducer EQ on. They fit very comfortably and the sound travels through my beanie without any reduction in volume. These are a great alternative to in-ear phones if you want to give your ear drums a rest. Go buy them, they are definitely worth the cash.
