The Good The Nixon Wire Mic earphones are exceptionally stylish and feature a durable, cloth-covered cable. A hard-sided protective case is included.

The Bad The Nixon Wire Mic earphones will not fit everyone comfortably and securely, and the mic module is heavy. Uneven-cable design can be a hassle.

The Bottom Line The Nixon Wire Mic earphones are a particularly stylish pair suitable for fashion-forward bass connoisseurs who still demand a good amount of clarity and detail from their music.

Fashion-forward headphones are nothing new. In the past couple of years, we've seen quite the parade of chic earphones from the likes of V-moda, Radius, and even Monster Cable . Nixon, a company best known for its board-sport-inspired line of watches and other accessories, has decided to dip its toe in these waters, too, and it should come as no surprise that the company's Wire Mic earphones are among the most stylish we've seen. However, quality is not all about good looks, and we're not without some criticisms for these $90 'buds.
