If this is the case it may be a very compelling option for a mid range/cost IEM with top level SQ and a neutral balanced presentation, as an improvement to the RE-400 and the Ety ER4P. It seems that the Noble 4 is $450 while the 4S is $999, there is so much difference that perhaps thera re more changes and it is just not the equal between universal and custom.

 

Does anyone know if the Noble 4 is the universal version of the Noble 4S and have the same SQ?

 

Both are described as identically at the Noble site

 

 

If they are the same I may just get the universal Noble 4 now ...

They have the exact same internals without any difference if you wonder whether the custom versions are more special inside. Of course, ciems are harder to make and customize so this raises the price, especially silicone ones like the 4S. Haven't heard the 4S but they shouldn't be too far apart aside from isolation and fit, which of course can affect the sound to some degree. Anyway, the universal version is pretty good and with the 15% Black Friday discount is a very good buy if one is looking for balanced and neutral sound.

I have a Q for you. User Hisoundfi recommended me the Soundmagic E30s and I think he's right, but since you know so many IEMs... Id like you opinion.
Looking for best details and a balanced sound for $20-40. I love my Monoprices, so Im looking for an upgrade which somehow sounds the same. I listen classical mostly and dont really bother about bass, micrrophonics and isolation. What do you say?

 

I am not sure the E30 is an upgrade from the Monoprice in performance so much as it is a slightly different take on a balanced sound. However, it does have a nicer form factor and you'll likely enjoy using it a whole lot more.

I haven't tried the universal Noble 4 myself. I did try the 6 but it has a very different sound signature that won't work for you.

Thanks a lot. I know the Monoprices have bass in quantity but not in quality, and the treble's not the best. Do the Soundmagics fix those parts and with more detail? Do you have other recommendations in that price catagory? Predecessor PL30 maybe at $10 lower for example?

Actually looking to buy a DAC+ an IEM + a over ear. ljokerl already suggested to get M50X so will try to see a price drop this BF and buy one.

 

Regarding my audio preference, I add up a bit of bass to my piston v2.1 and its close to what I like to hear. Loved UE6000 in cancelling mode(without any bass boost) and it suited me perfectly though was very much uncomfortable & had to return it.


For IEM looking between GR 07 classic and GR07 Bass Edition, though inclined on buying BE


Looking up on FiiO E7K as a DAC primarily to boost bass with desktop as a source. So, E7K+ M50X and GR07 BE would be good enough for me? Or should I take FiiO E11? Thanks!
