Mionix Nash 20 headset review - When matte black shines

Testing

Mionix has designed some fairly large gaming headsets here, most assuredly the kind that is not meant to be taken on the go. I have taken that into account when testing them, and I first strapped them to the ASUS ROG Xonar Phoebus for the normal-user experience, then plugged them in a Xonar Essence One, a portable Fiio E12, and even SilverStone EB01 / EB03 DAC & AMP combo.

To compare them, I used SteelSeries' Siberia V3, HyperX Cloud, and even some of my cans like Audio Technica M50X. As for the listening playlist, you can check it below.

Arctic Monkeys - Do I wanna know
Cage the Elephant - Sail to the Sun
Christen Mooney - Aisling Song
Coeur de pirate - Metal Gleamed in the Twilight
Cranberries - Zombie

Venetian Snares - Hajnal
In Flames - Lord Hypnos
Rammstein - Keine Lust
Dead can Dance - Into the Labyrinth
Excision & Datsik - Deviance
Queen - The show must go on
Catamenia - Dreams of Winterland

Lastly, while I describe my impressions in detail, and I'm fairly certain my hearing is accurate enough, I have to put a massive "SUBJECTIVE" disclaimer on the impressions.

Still, listening impressions are not enough, so I also gave Nash 20 a whirl with a number of games, including, but not limited to:

Battlefield 4
Far Cry 4
Counter Strike: Global Offensive
Dreamfall Chapters
Elite Dangerous
