The Master Blaster, available in three colorways, is a lightweight and durable piece that boasts DJ quality sound and is topped of with leather details for the ultimate in listening comfort. The Nomadic, a compact and collapsible model, is made with stainless steel, durable nylon and custom molded foam. This perfect travel companion comes in seven color options and is also available for use with your cell phone. Designed with a minimalist point of view, ergonomic fit and soft touch application, the small dog with a big bark of the bunch is The Wire. The Wire delivers robust sound in a comfortable little package and is available in eight color choices and with two-way cell phone compatibility.

In support of this new category for the brand, Nixon has secured world-class athletes and musicians to the headphone team.

“Having the ability to re-think the product development from the ground up, how you want to use it and the way you use it has been a fun challenge," states Nixon Europes’s Marketing Director, Henning Erlandsen. “The team’s involvement all the way down to the audio sampling process, matching the music they listen to most with how this product will perform, elevates the product for everyone. I’m excited for people to discover the product."
