This review is from: Mionix NASH 20 3.5mm Connector Circumaural Headset
Pros: For the last four years I have owned and used a pair of Audio-technica ATH-A700 headphones which were some of the most comfortable cans I have ever tried. Before that I owned a pair of ATH M-50s. Both headphones had excellent sound quality and cost around $100 when I bought them. Regardless the connection finally failed on the A-700s and I decided it was time to get a new pair, and this time I wanted a mic along with the great sound quality the A-700s had, and if I could get something nearly as comfy that would be great to.
I chose these because of prior experience with a Mionix Naos mouse, which was hands down and excellent mouse. It was simple, comfortable and extremely high quality so which seems to be the reputation all Mionix products hold. For that reason I decided to give these a go.
Compared to the ATHs A-700s and M-50s these are not nearly as comfortable, they are heavier, have a much tighter fit on your head and their is definite pressure around your ears. I do assume I am used to a lighter headphone though because the A-700s feel weightless. Despite this extra weight and pressure the Nash is still very comfortable and I would be happy wearing it for hours on end. Moreover the the pressure does ensure that the earpieces stay solidly over your ears, ensuring sound cancelling as well as the ability to turn your head rather far without them slipping.
As for sound quality I would divide this between gaming and music.
For music I use winamp with the enhancer add on most of the time, and that passes out through a FiiO Taishan since I don't need the mic and it seems to have better fidelity than my motherboard audio. Compared to the ATH-700s the Nash as a little less perfect. They are rather punchy, and the highs are truly excellent but I find it much harder to divide out the soundspace like I could with the ATH-700s. For softer, subtle or more "classical sounds" this added punch demands you lower your volume which I don't like but for pretty much anything else it works out well. As for the lows, the ATH-700s seemed to be able to drop all the way and still stay defined, and the Nash just can't keep up. The lows are not bad, just lacking the depth I would like. In all the Nash just seems less precise and a bit harsher but still quite good. The maximum volume possible is right about where I like to listen in a noisy room and at that volume I am in my own world, so that probably shouldn't be an issue unless you work in a factory.
For gaming I move over to motherboard audio for the mic and in this case the volume has no reasonable limit like what digital output has, which I guess works out perfect for games. The mic performs perfectly, no matter what crazy loud activity is taking place in the background which I think is pretty awesome. The sound quality from the mic also seems to be quite good as well, but I will need to test it out further over the coming weeks.
Cons: As far as I can tell their are no immediate cons. These headphones are doing exactly what they are designed to do. Yes I wish they were lighter and employed the system that the ATH-700s had but that would come at the cost of durability which is a trade off Mionix made to ensure quality.
The only one I can even think of is the fact is has a really long cord, which tends to get wrapped up and tied on and behind everything, but Mionix put a Velcro strap on the cord to solve this problem.
Other Thoughts: Lastly as for build quality these are nothing short of the best. You will not be disappointed. The only caveat I can find is the future: I don't know how they will hold up but they seem to be built to last.
When all this is considered alongside the price I have to say these are an absolute steal which is why I gave it 5 stars. Should it's price have been where it's true competition is at $150-200 it would have been 4 stars, but that is not the case for the time being.

This review is from: Mionix NASH 20 3.5mm Connector Circumaural Headset
Pros: I was nervous about this brand because I have never heard of them before, but.........These are the best sound in a sub $200 I have heard yet, and it even gives my $300 audiophile headphones a run for their money! Very crisp and clean sound. Mic is clear according to my buddies on teamspeak. Very comfortable also. Only pressure I feel on my head is where they sit around my ears, and it is (and I can't stress the enough) VERY LITTLE pressure! I can have these on for hours and be very happy. I also like how there is no inline volume control (lighter cord), and the cord, while is crazy long, is pretty light so I don't feel anything tugging on my left side. They have a Nice rubberized coating and are pretty well built. After listening to some music and giving this a good try, I must say that I should have just gotten them in the first place (see other thoughts).
Cons: Are you kidding?
Other Thoughts: Sooooooo, I had a razer set that went bad after a few months. Then I tried the corsair gaming set. was bad out of the box. Then tried another corsair model. sound was muffled and just plain bad. I did not give these a chance because I had never heard of them. ----I WAS WRONG----. I should have gone with these from the start and saved me the trouble.
