Sweet Sound From Sweden


What comes to mind when my thoughts turn to Sweden? The midnight sun. Psychedelic rock. Lingonberry jam on knäckebröd. Bergman, Forsberg, IKEA. Killer earbuds.

Nocs NS400 (titanium/white)


In case you've never heard of Nocs , it's a fairly new Swedish company that makes a growing line of earphones, headphones, and in June, a set of Apple AirPlay-compatible speakers. The earphones reviewed here, the NS400, are a midrange model that...

The Nocs NS400 earphones have a stylishly simple design and offer very pleasing sound for their price. They also have an integrated iPhone/iPod-friendly remote and microphone for making calls.

Folks with deeper ear canals may have a harder time get a comfortable fit and tight seal.

The fairly affordable Nocs NS400 earphones offer a simple, sleek design and strong performance for the money.

Nocs NS400


Balanced, accurate sound ; Incredibly revealing detail ; Deep bass response ; Lightweight and comfortable

Short cord ; Occasionally aggressive treble ; Few accessories

There’s no doubt that the NS400 are a tremendous value. Sure, they’re short on accessories, but who cares when every cent of the purchase price pays off with premium performance.

Nocs NS400 Earbuds Quick Review: A Small Premium For A Small Upgrade


. At the time, the 200s were the company's only Android-friendly offering. I was pleasantly surprised with the audio quality and comfort of the NS200s, especially given their reasonable (for a more serious product) price of $70. Well, now I'm back with...

Nocs NS400 Titanium


Nocs' NS400 offers a considerable improvement over the company's NS200 in-ear headphones for just a $30 premium. The NS400 will appeal to anyone looking for good headphones that match their Apple products, especially at street prices.

Like the NS200, the NS400 is a canalbud-style headset. Canalbuds generally split the difference, in both design and price, between traditional earbuds and true in-ear-canal (canalphone) models. Since they fit partially in the ear canal, canalbuds block...

Nocs NS400 Titanium In-Ear Headphones Review


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...

Should you still get these over the lower end NS200? Unless you really like how the NS400 look, we say nay nay. Nocs has already set the bar high with its lower end in-ear headphones that you're better off saving some cash and going with the NS200....

Nocs NS400 Titanium review


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...

Stylish and well-built, with a full feature set and at a good price, our only gripe with the Nocs NS400 Titanium is the relatively puny bass. You may disagree.

NOCS NS400 Titanium Earphones


Back in December 2010 we reviewed the NS200 Aluminiums – the first earphones to be released by Sweden's NOCS brand – and said that, while they were well priced for their sound at $79.95, you needed to pay more for a wider dynamic range and more clarity...

Well made; comfortable; good sound for the price

A little muted; marked instrument separation; light bass; no case

Nocs NS400


Nocs NS400 is the best earphones I've come over so far. I listen a lot to classical music, and the sound is incredibly detailed and perfectly balanced.
