Great review!  Glad to see the ARIA getting some love. Now you gotta get the MAYA, haha!
To be fully fair, I didn't say I was retiring MY K10. That is far from the truth - I still take it with me everywhere and use it quite a bit. What I said is that I find myself reaching for my MAYA *more* when I am looking for a reference-level sound. The K10 is warm, and that was my personal reference for many years. I have shifted my views on what reference means TO ME. That doesn't mean that I don't still love both of the products. :-) They happily coexist and complement...
The pleasure was all mine! Thanks for letting me listen to some of your IEMs, especially the Andromeda. I had a great time.talking with you and finally meeting you in person. I look forward to many more such meetings in the future. And this time I will bring some of many myriad IEMs to share with you, haha!
Don't get me wrong. I love Noble too and still love my K10 (and 6 and 3 and 4C...). It is just that my preferences have slightly changed and I have moved away from an overall warmish preference to a more neutral one (while still taking some extra bass). If I am honest, I actually like the Katana sound more these days than the K10. Don't take my post as me saying that the MAYA is technically better than the K10. It isn't. It is just, for me and my preferences right now, I...
Fantastic preview review! I gotta say, MAYA is my go-to reference CIEM. It has replaced my Noble K10.
Trust me. You won't be disappointed. :-)
I would love to see Luke at a CanJam! Especially CanJam@RMAF. Unfortunately, he is mostly a one man operation out of Maine here in the US. Here is to hoping he gets big enough to join in the fun at CanJam!
The MAYA is definitely more detailed up top. It has more energy in the treble. But it still has the same bass of the SERA. SERA is warmer as a result of less treble. It sounds to me like MAYA would be up your alley, but the $100 off SERA right now equates to $50 off an eventual upgrade.But if you don't like a warmer sound signature, SERA might not be your cup of tea. Don't take my word for it -- perhaps wait for some other reviews. I just telling you what I hear and am...
Hello!  Sure thing. The bass is pretty similar across the entire range of Vibro Labs products.  The bass is pretty accurate as far as balanced-armature bass goes.  While it doesn't move as much air as a dynamic driver and doesn't have that giant, impactful thud, it is still very satisfying. There's a good amount of subbass, slightly elevated midbass (which makes it easy to tell the different bass frequencies apart, rather than just feeling that there's an omnipresent...
Hello all!  As some may know, Luke recently loaned me a demo pair of the new SERA to get my honest feedback on them.  I have preivously spent a good deal of time with both the ARIA and the MAYA (and I've got a custom MAYA as one of my daily drivers), so I hope I can provide a little bit of insight into this new model and potentially set some minds at ease.  I've spent the several days with them plugged into my head pretty exclusively, and I'm ready to share my first...
