Although I am more of an earbud kind of gal, the Nixon Trooper headphones would seriously make me reconsider my portable audio choice. It is not only very sleek and simple (for what usually ends up as a chunky headset), it also boasts great quality to boot.
Available in a slew of colors, the Nixon Trooper headphones were awarded a Good Design award by the Chicago Athenaeum. Priced at $70 and $50, they are iPhone compatible with padded headband and ear cushions. It also features a custom full size volume knob.
