Nocs NS400 in-ear headphones offer good sound, Apple-inspired design

Excerpt: (1 items) When I reviewed Nocs’s $70 NS200 Aluminum ( ), I found that the Swedish company’s penchant for minimalism had resulted in a clean, but somewhat generic, design and that the sound quality, while unobjectionable, wasn’t particularly compelling, either. Nocs recently sent Macworld the company’s new $100 NS400 Titanium , which represents a step up in price and performance. Like the NS200, the NS400 is a canalbud-style headset.
Excerpt: This pair of shiny in-ear headphones comes to us straight from Sweden, home to Swedish House Mafia - one of many. It's the place where good sounding headphones are born. Did we mention Ikea? Yeah, things just got serious. Nocs' aluminum NS200 had already left us impressed so we've got very high expectations from the NS400 , Nocs' intermediate in-ear offering made out of titanium for extra durability and of course good looks, to sound even better.
Excerpt: The first thing that strikes you about the Nocs NS400 Titanium earphones is the metal from which the major part of the earbud is formed. This quality material offers a sense of quality and style absent from so many me-too earbuds, and at a price of around £69 it seems an almost extraordinary luxury. The finish is ever so slightly brushed metal, too, which makes the Nocs NS400 Titanium more stylish than shiny.
