Mionix Nash 20 Headset Review

Rating: 7.0.

In the wake of Zardon’s amazing Top 10 listing of the greatest headphones 2014 we look at a much more affordable pair of headphones in this review. No more Grado or Sennheiser headphones weighing in at well over £1,000 as Mionix are aiming the ‘regular luxury’ part of the market. Will the £100 Nash 20 be heard above the crowd?

With the best of the rest gaming headsets costing up to £200 or so, you can still get up and running with a pair of ‘mobile phone’ earphones for £20 – which gives us an overall price range for most home gaming solutions. The focus range is probably more like £50-120 – with the ear-rattling Medusas NX just under £50 and the all-singing-all-dancing Razer Megalodon around £120.

At £100, the Mionix Nash 20 slips in toward the high end of that scale, which means it will need to bring something pretty special to the party if it wants to succeed.
