The Nox Audio Scout headphones have 6mm balanced armature drivers and a frequency response of 10Hz to 26kHz. The mic inline is and omnidirectional unit that allows you to use the headset on your Pc or music phone. It has a tiny button for send and end that you might miss on the first look. You can buy them in white or black colors for $79.99.
The Nox Audio Scout is an interesting headset with a premium price. Whether or not these headphones will be perfect for you depends on your taste in music. Much like the other Nox headset I tested not too long ago, the Nox Audio Scout is not focused on deep bass. These headphones have workable bass, but if bass is your main criterion on judging headphones this is not the item for you.
These headphones are focused on balanced all around sound and they are very well balanced. The bass is good as I mentioned, but the mids and highs are crystal clear and very nuanced. You can hear things in the music that you don’t hear with other headsets, which almost makes some of the tracks listened to sound like different songs. It’s was a very pleasant listening experience.
The headphones are more than just good sound too; they have an inline mic allowing you to use them with your music phone. The little send/end button is billed as the world's smallest and with good reason. I though the first few minutes I messed with the headset that it lacked a button for that before realizing it was just really tiny.
The Nox Audio Scout has a different type of ear cushion than I am used to seeing. They look like normal earbuds with a soft rubber tip protruding from the side. That protruding tab helps to lock the earbuds against your ear to keep them from falling out when you are exercising and moving around It works very well too. The flaps are soft enough that I didn’t notice they were there.
The Nox Audio Scout has a cool lower cable that is square looking. It's a different style and I like the way it looks. The cable is short and sized mostly for keeping a music phone or MP3 player in your pocket. The cable length is just about perfect for me in that instance. The cord was long enough that I didn’t feel like I would pull the earphoens out of my ears and not so long that it catches on things randomly. I have had that problem in the gym with headphones with long cables.
If you want deep bass shop elsewhere, if you want balanced sound with decent bass this is the headset to get. Plus, the Nox Audio Scout looks really good.
