Nocs Intros NS500 In-Ear Headphones With iPhone 5s-Inspired Design

Nocs has introduced its latest in-ear headphones today, the $80 NS500 Aluminum. These iPhone 5s-inspired in-ears are one of the prettiest we've seen. The NS500 share a similar refined and minimalist design language with Apple's iPhone 5s like a polished chamfered-cut edge, smooth sandblasted aluminum surface and construction anodized in a subtle champagne gold hue - or in a Space Gray shade to compliment your iOS handset. 

The NS500's 8mm titanium-coated dynamic drivers claim to deliver the listener with an "amazing sonic experience that offers impeccable balance, rich detail and a deep bass". A flat tangle-free, Kevlar reinforced cable features Nocs' slim and lightweight, iOS 7-compatible 3-button remote with MEMS microphone for headset use and music playback control. Don't fret though, there's also an Android-supported version of the NS500 available as well.

NS2 Air Monitors By Nocs Come With AirPlay Direct, Now Available

Nocs has finally released its first set of high-powered monitor speakers called the NS2 Air Monitors. It's been a long time coming, and we think these are the sleekest looking pair of monitors we've seen in a long time. The minimalist Swedish designed NS2 Air Monitors are one of the first monitor speakers to feature AirPlay Direct functionality, which lets you wirelessly stream high quality music and audio on a WiFi network from your Mac, PC and iOS device. The cool bit is that the NS2 Air Monitors will even create their own little WiFi network in case you don't have an internet connection thanks to the AirPlay Direct technology. So you could always enjoy the fruits of wireless AirPlay streaming no matter how bad your ISP is. 

Each monitor houses a 3-inch kevlar coned woofer with dual magnets, and a 3/4" silk dome tweeter tucked inside a beautifully hand-built rubber coated cabinet. Nocs' NS2 Air Monitors will set you back $449, but for that sum of money you'll be enjoying accurate and well balanced sound you can bet will blow your pants off. Not to mention the option of picking between six vibrant colors ranging from orange, yellow, red, black, white and gray. These are available now and can be ordered directly off of Nocs' website in the USA and in Europe.

Nocs Headphones Will Make Your Friends Jealous

It's not everyday you come across a pair of well designed headphones, but it seems that the Swedish know modern design. Nocs is a Swedish headphone and earphone maker, much like the more worldwide known JAYS. All of Nocs audio products have a very modern look, you can be the judge of that though. I would like to know if they actually sound as good as they look, from what Nocs are saying, these babies have a warm and rich sound with heavy bass. The NS300 headphones pictured above, have an inline remote and mic for $79. They also come in five other colors.
