Nixon offers three models, the  above pictured studio-type “Master Blaster“, the “Nomadic” and of course ear buds called “Wire“.  Notable features of Nixon headphones include stylee  faux aluminum and  leather construction (the leather is real on the “Master Blasters“), stealth volume pot and detachable cord, (good if you break it as it can be replaced).  The “Nomadic” and “Wire” models feature an optional mic.

I tried the Master Blasters which retail at around 200 bucks. These Headphones are substantial and comfy. The thin inconspicuous wire, unlike some stayed nicely out of my way!  The firm ear surrounding leather cans did a nice job keeping out unwanted ambient noise, allowing an environment in which great  sound (with a little e.q. tweaking) was easily attained.  For my taste, midrange boost was required to get to get things sounding nice and warm.  Lastly, I was impressed with the volume control on the right can, this proved very convenient for quick volume tweaks.

Throw on a pair of Nixon Cans, and you’ll be rocking inside and out!
