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). 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.

I bought these as an upgrade over the 8mm version because i was so disappointed with the sound quality but these still didn't live up to my expectations. my crappy skullcandy smokin buds sound better than these. and that makes me sad because i really love nixons stuff.
they are 10mm.

Good idea, just needs to be tweaked a bit by Nixon. Before these I didnt think it was possible for Nixon to do anything wrong, but these headphones are mediocre for a price above others. They dont sound bad at all, just not $59.99 good. Compared to their Skullcandy FMJ counterparts these are lacking a phone mic, sound a bit tinny, and the bass is not as full.
These are pretty light though, and I like the braided cord that came on my Black ones (black/silver not all black). The only bummer about the braid is that it does make a scratching noise when the music is off rubbing against itself and your clothes. Who has their headphones in and is not listening to music? Again, though, the FMJ has a braided phone without the scratching issues.
Overall, nice bud but just not a VALUE headphone. Case, accessories, and styling is sick though...you cant deny them that.

I'm kind of stuck in the middle with these headphones. There are things I like for sure, but others that bug we as well.
The good: Sound, style (I got the white to match my whit iPhone),
The not-so-good: Don't seem to fit as well as others I've tried (seem to pop out and have trouble staying in), cord seems to tangle a bit even though it's the braided material type.
I'm going to have to give these a little more time to completely make up my mind. Factors such as fitting may be due to my ear size or something, but I haven't really had a problem in the past with Skullcandy, etc. Overall, pretty nice headphones, but a few small annoyances are keeping them from being a favorite.
