It's okay; you're putting them in your ears. It's not dangerous until you bury it under the ground.
I never know if it's meant to be pronounced NIKE - ON or NICK - ON. Same with Ricoh - RIGH- co or REE-co. Sometimes I hear people say SON-y (like the son from sonnet) like they are some weeaboo Japanese oldhand when even the company itself pronounces it SONE-y (like the sone from Ultrasone) and I'm like - chyeah.
But yes I've totally fallen in love with the NEX. Along with the SEL2418z and a collection of curious old glass lenses (I recently got a Asahi Super Takumumar that uses Thorium in the glass and is thus mildly radioactive!!!!!) I'm having a lot of fun with it. <3
From the Japanese people I know, they say, NEE-kon, but I tend to say NIGH-kon. It's like Americans saying "I-KEE-a" when apparently, the real pronunciation is "e-KAY-a"
chyeah? I thought it was "Jeah!" ?
