Yo, I was wondering about the cord for these headphones. I find in the majority of in-ears, the cord has terrible sound transmission, i.e. if it moves against your shirt or anything you can hear it through the phones. Can anyone comment on this for me? Cuz that pretty much ruins the listening experience unless you're sitting on your ass.

It blows my mind how people are reviewing Nixon buds so well. I can only assume that they are judging purely on 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'll be continuously trying to shove 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.

Great design and functionality. I love how much space there is for cards, and the I.D. slot is handy when buying drinks, etc. However quality is pretty poor, a hole ripped in the coin purse section within 3-4 months so now all my coins get lost inside the wallet! Hahah. I guess you get what you pay for, my next wallet will be real leather.
