There are definitely imitators, but true audiophiles revere NOCS‘ headphone game. The Swedish brand has just turned up its offerings, here unveiling its “most most refined in-ear” to date: the NOCS NS500 Aluminum. About a year in the making, the NS500 features a solid CNC-machined, chamfered-cut aluminum body to house its meticulously-tuned parts. To talk brass tacks, the headphones boast a titanium-coated diaphragm, a notably high impedance (16 Ohm @ 1 kH), and a 8.0 mm dynamic speaker – ensuring that every synth, drum kick and croon is crisply delivered. While delivery is set for late May, interested parties can pre-order the latest from NOCS now on the brand’s website.
