Excerpt: Nocs continues to impress us with yet another new offering that is extending the Swedish line of solid in-ear headphones so called the NS600 Crush . And boy are they looking fine as fine can be. We expect no less coming from the land that gave us Spotify, Abba, IKEA, Absolut, blondacious girls and our most favorite meatballs. That about covers it I think. Aside from that, Nocs has a knack for numbering its headphones in a series of ascending numbers.
Conclusion: Nocs’ calculated approach to design is smart. We appreciate that the company has managed to maintain sonic excellence, while developing products with distinct character that will suit a wide range of tastes. The NS600 won’t replace the NS400 or even the NS800 in our bag of reference in-ear headphones, but we can see how they will be a solid fit for some tastes.
Pros: Big, deep bass from a compact in-ear, Clear, uncongested midrange, Comfortable fit
Cons: Aggressive, sometimes shrill treble, Non-pliable cord
Excerpt: On the surface, the earbuds themselves appear to be pretty similar to their predecessors: they’re still rounded silver aluminum caps with black silicone rubber tips, with an in-line remote and mic capsule dangling from the right cable, and a thin black 3.5mm headphone plug on the bottom.
Excerpt: Designed in Sweden, the NOCS NS600 Crush earphones offer a minimalistic, appealing design with audio to match. The silver earphones, with black trim, won’t capture the eye of a passer-by with bright colours or an overly ambitious design. Rather the bullet-shaped NOCS impress with a simplistic, clean design that calmly announces that it, unlike many recent, outlandish headphone designs, will be stylish for years to come.
Pros: Beautiful design; different earbuds included; in-line remote
