Truly, when I look back and try to find a negative, I can't. Sure, things always have the potential to get better in overall clarity, detail, tonality, etc, no matter how much money you're willing to spend. However, when I listen to Kaiser Encore, I can't find myself wishing for anything. I loved K10, but there was clear room for improvement. With Kaiser Encore, that path is not so clear. If Noble reached out to me today and said, We will do whatever you want to this monitor. You tell us what you want and we will make it happen, I wouldn't change a thing, and that has not been the case on anything else I've ever heard.Read Full

The Katana is really a wonderful sounding IEM, and I am so happy to review it. While Noble considers it as a co-flagship with the K10, I personally find that, for my own preferences, the Katana has taken its place as the new flagship of the Noble line up, and I absolutely love it.Read Full

I was expecting the 4C to sound way harsher and fatiguing in order to stay neutral as a lot of other products I've tried, but at the end they achieved to be really neutral and at the same time musical, and at the end I think they could be a wonderful add the collection of any audiophile looking to enjoy his library in a neutral nonetheless enjoyable way. But if you've got the chance to listen to some, let yourself pass over the not wowing first experience and I really think you'll enjoy those a lot over time if you're a clarity lover.Read Full

These are the best-sounding in-ear headphones I've ever heard. They're the sort of headphones that make you want to listen to every piece of music you can find, just because you've never heard any of it sound so good before. Listening to Sammy Davis Jr singing Mr Bojangles on Live From Australia, I desperately wanted to pour a whisky, light a cigar and sit on musty red velvet. Music can be so magical when it's communicated well.Read Full

This is the bit that matters, and I've listened to tens of hours of music on these headphones now. I've listened to pop, classical, rock, electronic and everything I could find that was recorded with some care and love. The result, almost across the board is, honestly, the best sound I've ever heard.Read Full

The K10U is detailed, musical, revealing, but also fun, dynamic and engaging. It's a no-compromise in-ear that gets out of the way to let the music shine. Be ready for some really emotional moments with your favorite tracks. The Wizard really did something magical here. So, yes, it's worthy of being called a Kaiser. If you can afford them - go and get them and call off your search for the best IEMs, you have found them!Read Full

Noble Audio's 4S CIEM it is at once accurate and transparent, yet engaging and easy to enjoy. Over time, the 4S has become the go-to reference I turn to when I want to know how a recording really sounds; but it is also the CIEM I look for when I want to immerse myself fully in my favorite music. What could be a stronger recommendation than that?Read Full

The N6 is a musical and detailed earphone with plenty bass. They provide a powerful sound with smooth yet extended upper frequency response.

Basically, if you like listening to all genres of music, get the Noble 3Us. They fit excellently, sound incredibly good, and are just gems. I hope this review helped give insight into the Noble 3s, since they seem to have few reviews for whatever reason. I am very glad I took the plunge though, it was well worth it.Read Full

In Closing, the Savant is an amazing feat of engineering. With its 2 driver (shhhh) design and what I would consider great value in its price range, it's a no brainer for those out there looking for a new, detailed but musical IEM to get lost in music with. The Savant is a fantastic choice…. Provided you are not a basshead. I am a basshead. HOWEVER, I am also open minded and I am currently saving my pennies to buy myself a pair. I have never been a believer of single role headphone/iems. I have always opted for the allrounder, and for many the Savant my be that allrounder. For me it is just SO GOOD at acoustic music that I feel I need it in my collection.Read Full

When it comes to bright revealing highly resolving balanced sound with an impressive low end and top end extension, accurate tonality, excellent layering and separation, expanded soundstage, and non-fatigue extended listening experience to my ears K10UA is IT!!! Even though in the last year my listening preference has been more toward the warmer smoother sound, I still love to spoil my senses with a jolt of revealing micro-detail signature but can never find the monitors I can use for extended listening session until I came across K10UA. The only thing that can make them better is The Wizard's magic touch to add 2 more low end drivers to step up to K12UA with more sub-bass rumble. But for now, in my book, K10UA holds the Golden Crown of bright revealing sound while right next to it I have U12 with ADEL Crown of warm organic sound two of my absolutely favorite universals at the current moment!Read Full

Noble created a marvelous thing that I adore. This is without a doubt the pinnacle of portability and I've yet to experience anything superior in the iem world as a whole. Yes, a few models out there might best it in one area or another, but the final tallied score considered at the end of the game the K10 is literally the best portability experience available. Great job, Noble.Read Full

Of course, that wouldn't mean much if the sound wasn't spectacular, and it is. The Kaiser 10U is uber-transparent: From the deepest bass to the highest treble, the sound remains true. Even compared with my very best in-ear headphones, the Kaiser 10U sounds more accurate and pristine. Bass notes never cloud over or blur together, no matter how deep. For instance, the pounding bass on Thom York's "Eraser" album had more visceral punch than I've heard before.Read Full

Steve Guttenberg (CNET) | Kaiser 10

As I spent time with the Noble 4 it started to remind me of my Zu Druid V speakers. They share an immediacy that brings back more of live music's presence. Acoustic guitars sound natural on the Noble 4, and cymbals and percussion instruments shimmer and sparkle as they do in real life. Audiophile CDs from MA Recordings amply demonstrate the Noble 4's performance lead over the competition -- there's a tactile, you-can-almost-touch-the-instruments aspect to the sound. After wearing the Noble 4 for a while, other headphones sound thick and congested.Read Full

I did have a NuForce Primo 8 in-ear, which I also praised for its neutrality last year, but with my Aphex Twin and Amon Tobin electronica albums the Savant was clearly more detailed and spatially larger. The Primo 8 is no slouch, but it loses texture, dynamic contrasts, and the subtle, ambient details that the Savant effortlessly revealed in the mixes. Sorry to repeat myself, but the Savant is just significantly clearer than other comparably priced headphones.Read Full

Steve Guttenberg (CNET) | Savant

Experiences were good , but perhaps a longer burn-in would unravel the demo unit's standard of clarity .

In closing, I am very pleased with my purchase and the sonic experience I had from the Noble Audio Wizard Savant! I must add that the Savant having only two balanced armatures inside each earpiece is a definitive testament to the less is more approach winning! One does not need four to twelve drivers in each earpiece to have a neutrally transparent yet musical experience from an i.e.m. Masterful tuning and a sonically pleasing experience is awaiting you for a reasonable price in the Noble Audio Savant i.e.m.Read Full

This is a great IEM, sound quality is great and I'm very impressed with it. I never feel like I want to buy an IEM, but because of the Savant, I now feel like I want to, in fact I feel like I'm gonna make either the Savant or The K10 CIEM version as my final headphone, nowadays the price of other TOTL headphones is just crazy, I feel like for that amount of money any kind of compromise is unacceptable, with the selection from Noble IEM I can get a very portable listening device with a superb performance that will satisfy my music needs without feeling after purchase guilt after buying a crazy expensive headphone that is impossible to take where I go.Read Full

emptymt | Savant

The Savants are an amazing IEM, but like any headphone or earphone they are not necessarily for everyone. The Savants remind me very much of the Sennheiser HD800s (although perhaps with a touch less bass). Like the HD800s, the Savants can provide a window into the music and recording quality that is exciting to hear, but sometimes they can also become a bit fatiguing and leave me wishing for something a bit warmer and forgiving.Read Full

Loquah | Savant

Doing this comparison not only showed how the Savant can outperform an excellent IEM such as the Stagediver 2 but also convinced me how accurate the manufacturer's description is. Noble has once again impressed me with their masterful tuning and I hope they continue to bring forth ear pleasing products that many will enjoy.Read Full

I can't really agree to say that Savant are just a baby K10, and the best thing you can do is to try them both to find out which one you like better instead of jump on the flagship just because it is the flagship. I'm sure a lot of people will prefer the Savant over the K10U. The K10U, warmer, are brilliant doing well on every kind of music, and every recording, with astonish technicality. But, the Savant will shine with its very involving sound, speed, and coherency while being slightly less all-rounder than the K10. Now for the price asking for the universal Savant, those are a crazy great value, which can compete with some of the best multi BA based IEM in the market. Great job Noble!Read Full

Marshal Banana | Savant

I am sold. I haven't tried that much IEMs compare to full size headphones, so I probably not the best person to review them, however this is the best sounding IEM for me, the most comfortable as well! In the past i have owned T-Peos Altone 200 and JVC FX-700, which sounds and feel good as well, but they're not as good as the Savant. This is the first time i listened to IEM and didn't miss my full size headphones. This is the first time i put an IEM and don't feel annoyed by the fittings. Well done Noble, this one is a winner and a keeper.Read Full

daduy | Savant

The sound signature is very similar to the K10. The level of detail and clarity for a IEM of this value is simply astounding. The instrument separation is very good and is a joy to listen to an orchestra. For me the Savant shined the most when listening to classical music. The modern albums such as Taylor Swift's 1989 sounded good but not as good as my AKG K3003i or JH Audio Layla. Sometimes it was feeling bit clinical maybe due to the higher emphasis treble. Overall, the sound is very clean and if you have bad mp3 recordings they will start to show up very clearly.Read Full

piksnz | Savant

Now here brings me back to the meaning of Savant. I really don't know which aspect of the earphone they were referring to. The Savant handles nearly every part in the sound department with ease. With the correct source pairing the detail retrieval goes to reference levels, shy of analytical. The Savants are also extremely dynamic and coherent in the way it presents every sound element. Everything just feels effortless. The tuning is done with great care to keep everything balanced and just right. To me this this kind of sound signature is nearly perfect in timbre.Read Full

DJScope | Savant

I fell in love with default signature of the Savant from first listen it's almost like it was designed for my particular tastes. The mid-range is very clear, very clean (and quick), and very vivid. In many ways it reminds me of my old B2, or maybe even a more vivid Shure SE425, but with a far better tuned upper end. With both of those earphones, the mid-range was exquisite, but the bass rolled off early, and that is kind of what I'm hearing bit with the Savant.Read Full

Brooko | Savant

I seriously love this IEM, and I think Noble has a huge winner in their hands. The Wizard nailed the tuning with the Savant and I know it will please many many people not just me. In addition, the Savant doesn't sacrifice musicality by any means for a neutral and detailed sound. I don't know how the Wizard did it, but he accomplished both with the Savant and seriously nailed it.Read Full

Cotnijoe | Savant

At only $599 for the plain-Jane universal variant, the Savant is very much a middle-of-the-road Noble model in terms of pricing. But considering its impeccably balanced signature, excellent detail and separation, pristine presentation, and astonishing clarity, I am more apt to declare it as Noble’s flagship from a sonic standpoint. For me, and those who favor balance like myself, the Savant is an instant classic and an indispensable reference.Read Full

warrenpchi | Savant

I'm glad to have taken the plunge on these headphones. I am still getting in touch with everything they have to offer, and at this point I would rate them over the ie80 in technical abilities. I think Noble has created another winner here and a competitive universal in-ear monitor at its price-point. $50 less and this IEM would viciously compete with others in the same range. This is one to consider for those searching for a mostly-neutral IEM with brilliant clarity and striking imaging qualities along with a focus on highs on lows without the dreaded mid-recession. As far as balanced armatures are concerned, I can't imagine a better entry for myself.Read Full

MrNick | Noble 3

The Savant sounded good with the aforementioned genres. Initially, I felt that its versatility was also its weakness. It handled all the genres well but didn't seem to shine particularly with any specific ones. However, when I started to listen to Jazz and orchestral music, the Savant was phenomenal. Especially so for the former. It is the best IEM I have heard to date for Jazz music.Read Full

uchihaitachi | Savant

My taste in music is eclectic, to put it mildly. Within the space of an hour I can jump from Beethoven to The Prodigy to Rammstein to Ben Howard. For the past two years, the K10 has been The One for me. It could do everything and do it well, so I rarely bothered carrying other headphones. But then came the Savant… And while the K10 is still my top pick for a do-it-all headphone, the Savant has become my IEM of choice for music like Daughter, Ben Howard, Agnes Obel, Keith Jarrett and Fink. For me, they're the perfect sidekick to the K10 but if your music tastes revolve around piano, acoustic guitar, strings, woodwinds and well-recorded vocals, the Savant could very well be The One, a Superhero in its own right.Read Full

Sorensiim | Savant

The Savant's definitely aren't going to compete on the same level as the K10s and other top of the line IEMs technically, in terms of extension, staging, resolution, the Savant still falls a tad short. But we cannot deny that it is masterfully tuned, and I guess for those of us who aren't looking for the last word in resolution, but instead, looking for something well tuned (and I must add that this is often the hardest thing to get right), the savants are probably going to nail it for us. At the price point, I believe they do pretty well and you wouldn't be too far off if you decide to get them.Read Full

WCDchee | Savant

Well the sound is even more amazing then the K10s are to look at! Everything I had read about the Noble Kaiser 10 CIEMs is true. No matter what music genre I threw at them the sound was perfect. Jazz and classical had instruments with various sounds that I had never heard before. Vocals were crisp and balanced with the instruments. I am not someone who has ever done a review with the technical words for IEMs so I will leave that to the professionals. What I can say is that I have never enjoyed my music nearly as much as I do now that I have my K10s. Music is just that much more fun to listen to. I have other IEMs that are more analytic in hearing distinct instruments and vocals and if I am focusing I certainly have clarity with my K10s. But mostly I just close my eyes and hear all there is to hear in whatever I am listening to and I am enjoying the music. That is perhaps why I feel my K10 CIEMs are the perfect IEM.Read Full

The Noble 4U is a very neutral IEM, impressively so, no area feels emphasised, they don't sound bassy, bright, or overly midrange-focused. The entire frequency range has immense clarity and ability to create an open, spacious feeling to the sides, in front and even above you. Dynamics are very natural and orchestral material can sound very lifelike and 3-dimensional, both in how the room extends out, and how the instruments will jump out at you when called for. Surface texture can be aggressive when called for thanks to good attack and decay, making metal and other music satisfyingly aggressive sounding.Read Full

Airlight | Noble 4

By way of summing up, let me concede in advance that the Kaiser 10s won’t suit every taste (and, truth to tell, I initially wondered if they would suit my own). The K10 might not be the CIEM of choice for in-studio monitoring applications (where the emphasis is more on knowing the exact contents of a given recording than on enjoying the music at hand). But for purposes of relaxing and listening for pure enjoyment, allowing oneself to become complete caught up in the complex, intoxicating beauty of music, Noble Audio’s Kaiser 10 is very tough to beat.Read Full

Chris Martens (Hi-Fi+) | Kaiser 10

The Noble K10s are an exceptional pair of earphones.

But one listen will convince you its money well spent.Read Full

Jon Myles (Hi-Fi World) | Kaiser 10

This is my new reference IEM, it may not be a CIEM but it is one of the best reference sounding IEMs or headphone I have had a chance to live with and fall in love with. I think that even for 700 dollars it is still worth getting, it is a unique experinece that everyone has to try at least once IMO. It is a desktop IEM and a protable IEM in one. This is definitely going to be something I recommend to people looking for a universal/custom reference IEM.Read Full

shiorisekine | Noble PR

Given my preferences and my tools, the best of the set was the Noble Kaiser K-10. It just tickled my fancy a bit harder than the other two, lined up best with my expectations and then exceeded them by more than a little. That's worthy of an Editor's Choice award.Read Full

Scot Hull (Part-Time Audiophile) | Kaiser 10

This is an earphone that is so perfectly balanced in it’s sound and design / build that it truly disappears and leaves you with nothing but the music and a smile. Not lacking in anything and not showcasing anything, the K10 really is the zen master of CIEMs and “just is” as it honestly and accurately conveys every sound, every nuance, and every emotion of the music without judgement and without opinion. While other earphones might strip away the bass to show you more details, or emphasise the mids to create more emotions, the K10 lets each track speak for itself and it has the full range of frequencies covered so skillfully that it convey whatever message the artist was trying to convey. Thunderous power through to fragile delicacy, the K10s have it covered, but not altered.Read Full

Lachlan Fennen | Kaiser 10

I'd pick the Kaiser 10 as my favorite CIEM any day. I own very many CIEMs of varying tastes and styles but the K10 is my clear favorite when I just want to listen to something on the road, or in the office, or anywhere really. I'll heartily recommend it to anyone willing to have one of the best all-arounder CIEMs out there. The only difficulty with this is actually trying to listen to something else after you've heard the K10s. At least that's how I see it. I still switch amongst my other IEMs but my K10 is always with me and I don't see myself getting tired of them anytime soon.Read Full

VisceriousZERO | Kaiser 10

If Noble made all their products with a similar signature then I'd be a little concerned. But they don't—others in the line are the V-shaped 3C and the neutral 4C. As such I think the 5C fills a somewhat underrepresented niche among higher-end custom IEMs. If the JH16pro won't scratch your impact itch, the Noble 5C may be your last hope.Read Full

Effectively, like the Sennheiser, the Noble needs to be judged as competitive with full size headphones because it produces a performance that is completely free of any limitations of scale, detail or sheer authority. The way that they handle Craig Armstrong's Its Nearly Tomorrow isn't good for an earphone or even good for a headphone, it is a performance that any speaker of virtually any dimensions would be proud to claim at its own. With decent mastering and sampling rates, the Noble is capable of performance that would see many stereo speakers getting very dusty through lack of use.Read Full

To anyone on the fence about the K10s, I offer the wise counsel of one of America’s most distinguished heroes, David Lee Roth: Go Ahead and Jump. You will not be disappointed. The sound is exactly what you want, where you want it. Of course, maybe I’ll lose a K10 in another tragic jeep mishap one day and be proven wrong by the next great thing, but until then, I firmly believe the K10s are as perfect as possible.Read Full

EllisU | Kaiser 10

At $1,600/pair the K10 Universal IEMs are not necessarily for the casual enthusiast. That's a serious price and these are serious instruments for listening to music. They're not necessarily for the clinical, critical listener concerned with being able to hear if there are polyps beginning to form on Rebecca Pidgeon's vocal cords. They seem balanced a bit more smoothly, gently reserved in the upper regions and nicely extended in the low frequency band, with tight control and deep, dark goodness when it's in the recording. Mids are seductive and juicy, and I don't mean that to suggest they are overblown or too saturated. They're ripe, not overripe and that's exactly what I want out of any transducer. Ripe is right.Read Full

These CIEM's cost 1600 USD! I was initially hesitant to buy them, but in the end they are completely worth it.

I've had the K10's since February, and my enthusiasm is still as strong as the day they arrived at my door.Read Full

Headiest | Kaiser 10

For $699 (USD), the PR isn't a cheap IEM, but it's very well priced for the levels of performance on offer. That said, it's not going to be for everyone. This isn't a full-range IEM in my opinion and that will limit its abilities to create an enjoyable and immersive listening experience on some genres. There's no doubt that it completely nails its brief to be a detail monster while still maintaining a sense of musicality and enjoyment (i.e. it doesn't fall into the super-bright treble = detail trap), but I believe it is more of an analytical listening tool than a musical enjoyment device. Of course, that might just be a matter of taste so others might love all the detail and find that to be their doorway to musical enjoyment. If so, this IEM is a cracker and I'd highly recommend it! For those who want a more balanced (i.e. with natural levels of bass) presentation, don't discount the Noble products, but look at some of their other beautiful options rather than the PR.Read Full

Lachlan Fennen | Noble PR

Anyway, I've had these things for a couple of weeks now and I adore them. I can listen for hours on end without fatigue and they sound amazing with well recorded and mixed material. Some folks have mentioned the low end is tight but not maybe for bassheads. Well I really like a good extended bass and I'm hearing the same woof on a well mic'd kick drum that I hear on a pair of big Augsperger studio monitors, though I might not be getting it in the chest. The low end is great and I couldn't imagine wanting any more. The high mids are very smooth without that harsh 4kHz bite that keeps you from cranking a lot of IEMs. If I could nail it down, I'd say I'm getting that extended low end and a smooth over 12K high end, that I haven't heard yet on other IEM's. As others have said - they are kind of expensive - but these are the first IEMs that I look forward to putting in my ears and listening.Read Full

Rich Nevens | Kaiser 10

The strength of this earphone in this area is definitely contributed by the lack of any emphasis in area. You'll notice that this is generally what I'm going to say in every frequency region. There's nothing in the sound that adds to the dynamics of a song and brings those instruments in and makes them more audibly present. This helps with both separation and space. Layers of instruments aren't blended together even with similar frequency signatures. Orchestral sections are so well separated and placed that it makes conducting seem like an easy task to do blindfolded.Read Full

morethansense | Noble 4

After reviewing an enslaught of sibilant IEMs lately (which I am personally sensitive to) these are a real treat. They are just crisp enough to retrieve details that dynamic drivers often struggle with, but not so bright that it becomes painful. IEM manufactures: Listen up. This is how highs need to be done.Read Full

White Lotus | Noble 4

It's all these points that really make the K10 very enjoyable to listen. They aren't what you would attribute a fun sounding CIEM as they lean towards being slightly neutral. Most likely, this is why I wasn't wowed at the very start. However, after using the K10s for close to 5 months, you really start to appreciate the way these sound. Switching away from these to say, an 8A, a pair of UM3X+3 or, the Tzar 350s, there would always be something missing from my music that makes me yearn for the K10, be it its controlled bass or its ever so spacious midrange.Read Full

Thracian | Kaiser 10

Previously, I had heard this at the Melbourne meet briefly and I was extremely impressed with its sound. From what I remember, it was neutral, very balanced and well extended. The N4 isn't the type of IEM that will stun you when you first listen to it like the DN-1000 does, but instead, you need some time to fully appreciate it. Over the few days that I have had it, I've really grown to like the N4 and to be honest, I can't really fault it anywhere.Read Full

lin0003 | Noble 4

So is the Noble PR a true 'Reference' monitor? In my personal experience, YES and it comes in two flavours. I find the Noble Reference sound signature to be my ideal preference when I want to focus on the vocals in the music. Ballads, A Cappella, and Country are the perfect examples of genres that'll really shine with the Noble Reference. As for the Noble Pure sound signature, this mode is the perfect solution whenever I want to hear the most detail from a song regardless of the genre. I applaud the level of the clarity, detail, and transparency that Noble was able to attain with the Noble Pure.Read Full

d marc0 | Noble PR

The FR offers a high degree of versatility and fully checks off on all of the boxes I'd expect a TOTL IEM to. I find myself using the Reference configuration on the majority of the albums I listen to, especially when my surroundings are relatively quiet. For vocal-centric songs, when I'm out and about and need a bass bump, or even when I just feel in the mood that day for a fun twist, the Full Range setting delivers. It's amazing to think that all it takes to meet my whimsy needs is the simple flick of a switch. Both configurations are a welcome addition to my IEM collection, and the fact that they came bundled in one convenient price and product is just the icing on top of the cake. Bon Appetit!Read Full

HideousPride | Noble FR

The folks at Noble are very upfront about the 4 being the champion of neutrality and the 6, with its two extra drivers, being the bassier, more musical option. The 6 is indeed significantly bassier than my 4S unit, improving also on one of the few things I found short of outstanding with the quad-driver Noble bass depth.Read Full

ljokerl | Noble 6

What else can I say... Whenever I listen to the K10's, they just sound right. They make me smile every time. I can count on them to do everything I ask. Tons of bass and punch when watching movies; tons of detail and speed when listening to music. They are certainly what I take with me on the go. OK, if I could only have one headphone/in-ear, I would have to keep my beloved Stax-009's, but we're talking about a $10,000 system. In any situation where I can't have my Stax, the K10's fit the bill perfectly. I am always "blown away" when I am on a plane with my K10's running Out Of Your Head on my laptop watching a movie. Having such huge 7.1 surround sound and bass impact on a plane makes me feel guilty that the other passengers can't hear what I am hearing!Read Full

darinf | Kaiser 10

So is the Noble 4 a true 'Reference' monitor? I honestly can't say... What I can say however, is that I can't find any significant flaw in its sound and presentation. There is a slight forwardness in the upper midrange/lower treble but I personally find it an advantage as it brings more clarity and detail without sounding too analytical. In other words, in spite its superb transparency and resolution, the Noble 4 still retains musicality and makes you enjoy listening to music provided that your source file is of high quality not just in terms of compression but mix/mastering as well.Read Full

Let's make no mistakes here; the N6 is a powerhouse of a design that is heavenly suited to lovers of a smooth, creamy, warming, voluptuous sonic signature. Particularly rich around the sub, low, and low midrange, the N6 exhibits a yesteryear tone, but with all of the dynamic range that you would expect from modern driver designs. We have to remember that if your music taste or consumption reflects or compliments an IEM that is slightly bass prominent, then you will certainly love the N6.Read Full

As for sound, these sound like nothing else I have ever heard. Particularly the highs are very, very good. They are bright and sparkly and revealing, well extended but never, ever harsh or sibilant. The bass is amazing, I swear you can feel it in your chest (for example, even watching movies unamped out of an iPad it has movie theater like bass). Mids are incredible as well, vocals are so well incorporated and where recordings are used with oversampling, doubling, or even where there are just multiple vocalists each layer can be clearly discerned.Read Full

The flagship 5S has a lot to offer; transparency, expansive sound staging, and an entertaining low end make for unique experience in ocean of options. Its overall organic feel only further complements its acute responsiveness and timing. If you are in the market for a custom IEM the 5S definitely something that you should check out. If you are market for a silicone IEM, the 5S should be at the very top of a very short list. Noble's past experience in the market really shows its maturity with this product. Even though it it's one of the companies launch day IEMs, the 5S sounds like a skilled veteran in your ear.Read Full | Noble 5

Versatility is the name of the game, the K10s will pleasantly reproduce any recording you throw at them. With that said, it is very much so advantageous to feed them with a high quality sound source. I tend to only listen to ALAC files, through an HRT Microstreamer fed through Amarra, or through my iPhone 5s whilst on the go.Read Full

I'll have more thoughts later.. but so far, it's a terrific phone. As far as neutrality is concerned, it's better than any universal I've heard... I find it more impressive than some of my faves like the GR07, BA200, RE-400, RE272, RE262, etc. I like it more than F111 that I got to audition not so long ago, as well. For the BF price, I feel like I got a steal.. even at the regular price now, I'm hard pressed to think of anything better. It would take a mighty impressive IEM to split ear time with the JH13 & UERM.. and the N4 is worthy of the challenge. Congrats to Noble Audio, the N4 is a very finely crafted IEM!Read Full

Well I've had a few days to listen to my 3C's now. Everything about them has blown me away - the design, the fit, and the sound! I honestly thought I wasn't going to get anything close to the natural, spacious sound of a nice set of open cans... boy was I wrong. I love the deep extension on the low end, and the crystal-clear highs. Everything is so well balanced, and the sound stage is really great. In some ways I find the sound stage to be superior to my full size headphones.Read Full

Refinement, resolution, imaging, and musical transparency (the ability of an iem to vanish, putting the listener directly in the music) are my criteria for calling an iem top tier, and the N6 delivers in spades. I'm especially stricken by how detailed it is, even with the fatigue-free signature. The imaging is also great. I'm a whore for great vocals, and the N6 blows me away in some tracks. My favorite iems for vocals are the ASG-2, TG334, and the Senn IE800, but the N6 is trying to be the D'Artagnan of the group.Read Full

Speaking of which, I have the Kaiser 10 on hand, and so far I'm very impressed. Not only is it the most beautifully built cIEM I've ever owned, but it has a very cohesive and effortless sound across the spectrum. It's refined and exquisitely controlled, which is crucial for U-shaped signatures, and to that end I find I can listen to it for hours on end which is pretty unusual for me when it comes to that kind of 'fun' tonal balance. Definitely a new favorite.Read Full

The 8C is a stellar performer. These are very capable ciems, with an incredible bass response, beautiful mids and surprisingly good highs, considering their warm signature. They remind me of the Sennheiser HD650. The HD650 were at their time lauded headphones, but some considered them as veiled. I wouldn't call the 8Cs veiled though, but they share with them the same "romantic" flavor, with smooth highs and impactful bass.Read Full

The sound is, simply, amazing. The bass is impactful with plenty of quality in the sub-bass region, the mids are right there where they should be front and center, and the treble extends up to the sky and beyond. I would say that no one particular area is emphasized or out of place. It's unbelievable how coherent the sound is from 10 drivers in each ear. Everything is in its place and there, without any area stepping on or trampling the other areas. If I wasn't hearing this for myself, I honestly wouldn't believe how good everything sounds and just perfectly comes together. I'm sitting here listening to Rilo Kiley and just have a ridiculous, stupid grin plastered on my face. I think I'm in love.Read Full

The Noble 8C has a unique sound signature, with a thick, lush midrange and an impactful low-end. It has wide genre-bandwidth is well-suited for EDM, R&B, rock, and pop (especially pop vocals). Jazz and classical can also be enjoyable, but the 8C will not give the most 'realistic' presentation for these genres. The treble of the 8C may be a deciding factor for some, those willing to trade a bright and airy presentation for a smooth, lush sound would do well to check out the 8C. The 8C also serves as a great custom for travelers, with a fatigue-free and enjoyable, euphonic sound.Read Full

The Noble 4S is a neutral-sounding monitor that is, on the whole, more balanced than the other reference customs I have here. Its ultra-smooth, slightly mid-focused sound invokes impressions of a cross between Etymotic Research and HiFiMan universals and makes it a direct upgrade to certain other custom-fit sets, such as the Clear Tune Monitors CT-200 and Lime Ears LE3.Read Full

While the absolute detail retrieval may be second to much more expensive, top-tier ciems, the 4C really nails giving you a window-on-the-music sort of accurate sound. It sounds as if nothing has been added to your music and nothing taken away.Read Full

The Kaiser 10 really defines what a flagship should be as an all-around excellent custom fit earphone with a versatile tuning that sounds great with a very wide range of music. A great deal of care went into every aspect of this earphone and it really shows. When it comes to having the total package, not only sound but customer service and appearance that's a work of art, look no further than new Noble Audio Kaiser 10.Read Full

What's new here? This time around the presentation is more balanced, less tilted towards being warm and smooth. It's still smooth but the top end has more bite, more air, more presence from the vocal range on up. This means singers take a more forward stance in the mix, and things like brass or guitar also come through more prominently. It still has that huge soundstage which is among the most expansive I've yet heard from a custom in-ear monitor.Read Full

The main change from 4.A to 4C seems to be detail. Where the 4.A was slightly on the forgiving side at times, the 4C is more ravishingly detailed. By that I mean it comes across as having more sparkle, more 'bite', in those upper registers. Just like the JH13, this results in a more exciting, involving presentation which really grabs your attention and refuses to let go. Note that this is not to be confused with 'brightness', which is not a word I'd choose to describe the 4C at all.Read Full

These are immensely versatile headphones - The shortest description I can give would be Dr. Moulton's Greatest Hits. It's like he took the best parts of all his other designs and somehow poured them into one headphone. Sadly, this brings us to the only downside to these things: They'll cost you almost as much as all those other headphones combined, clocking in at a cool $1600.Read Full

Lyden... Første indtryk var slemt, men jeg har enten ikke kunne få proppet dem godt nok ind, eller også var det blot lidt tilspilning der manglede. Nu er det langt bedre end jeg nogensinde kunne have forstillet mig fra noget så småt. Virkelig klar og lækker lyd med super lydisolering. Hvis man er til rock, kunne man måske have lyst til at vælge den mere bastunge udgave, med flere enheder i.Read Full
