By hard mf Ranked #324 - Headphones December 13, 2010
When I popped this pair of headphones out of the packaging, I couldn't help but be a little taken back by their simplicity and minimalistic feel. They seemed a little cheap looking, but I proceeded to plug 'em into test their intended use. For the size they really pack a punch.. distortion free at high levels.
I bought these for snowboarding, and in my opinion they are the best suited headphone for that. Their low profile design will go great over a beanie and under goggles. You can thrash around without these things moving whatsoever. I think Nixon needs to cut back their packaging materials cause I'm pretty sure the box uses more resources then the headphones themselves. I'd recommend these headphones for anyone looking for a good all around boarding go-to pair. I'm over fussing with jamming cold earbuds in my ear on the mountain. Overall the silicone ear cushions are just enough stick to stay put, they produce quality sound and I can't even tell I'm wearing headphones at all because they're so light and form fitting.
