Conclusion: We think that the Nocs NS800 Monitors are a special kind of treat for the ears. But, in the same way that not everyone enjoys caviar – at least not right away – some may have difficulty appreciating the NS800’s distinct flavor.
Pros: Natural, organic sound, Highly revealing and detailed, Low distortion, High sensitivity, Superior comfort
Cons: Don’t deliver lowest bass frequencies with authority, Not ideal for most electronic music
Conclusion: When it comes to looks and comfort, the NOCS NS800 Monitors are among our favourite earphones. Sound-wise, they’re good in the midrange, but need tuning at the top and bottom of the scale. The price is a little steep.
