Mionix Nash 20 Headset Review
As Mionix are proud of their Scandinavian roots it seems fitting that the Nash 20 has such razor sharp packaging. Simplicity and clarity are very much the watchwords. No fuss, without being no frills. It's a delicate balance, and one they pull off with aplomb. The box is slightly curious as there is an outer sleeve that reveals the headset, but in an open box. Normally a sleeve reveals another box, whereas this is similar to the flap designs, except the box just slides off. It works well, it was just a surprise.
If that design ethos only extended to the box we wouldn't have been shocked, but the Nash 20 matches the box in the aesthetics of the headset itself. It's a rugged looking number with the soft coating having a completely matte finish that is very eye catching. The headband has a screen printed dual-colour logo, something that is a cut above the average.
The volume control is oddly found at the rear of the left ear piece. It comes readily enough beneath your fingers once you're used to it. We're pretty sure that "walking behind the opposing team and muting their headset" will become an underhanded tactic of choice soon enough.
The microphone has a 'lift to mute' feature rather than a button. The ear pieces are very deep and although square isn't the most obvious choice, they fit neatly around even the most generously proportioned ears.
Finally the cables are tightly braided and of a very high standard. There is plenty of cable for even the most out of the way arrangement.
