They certainly do not for second owners. Maybe for original owner. Second hand buyers would use another company for re shelling. The name of the company escapes me ATM.

The rate they are turning out their products they should consider using the reshelling company for the original owners.

I think the price is very reasonable 175 euro. My is acrylic.

Yup, have you guys seen the Roxanne universal?  The CIEM sticks out  because of the number of drivers, and the universal looks like it can hardly stay in place because of it's size weight.

Yeah - the uni Roxanne is just too big IMO, far larger than my TG!334 which is pushing my comfort level.  That demo K10 was like a dream in packaging, but looking at it in the light next to my custom Roxanne you could see how much work must have gone into it, there was almost no empty space in that shell.

 

I liked the K10 enough that I would have probably plunked down $1300 right then and there for a uni if it were that size.  But I wasn't blown away to the point that I was going to spend $1600 for another custom... not without some serious head time.

What about it made you plunk down that much?  What aspects to sound did you like?

Boo-Ya...

Guys I've moved the Noble K10 chat to the Noble Thread. I know the earlier posts didn't intend to go off-topic initially but followups quickly lead to OT. Please stay on topic.

 

Thank you.

I am quite curious about why JH made the bass tuning to separate L and R. When would you want to tune them differently?  

post #5995 of 6471
I've wondered that myself.

I guess it is harder (more expensive) to get perfectly matched double pot.
post #5997 of 6471

I am sure for its price, it sure would cover the perfectly matched double pot...hmm

post #5998 of 6471

I have read somewhere that this was because of the size of the pot.

The pot with only one adjuster was supposed to be huge instead of the two-channel one...

Thinking outside the box.....
I suppose you could reshell the Roxanne using a 2 pin connector. Install a small resistor inside the earpiece, inline with the bass drivers.

I think it's doable. ...

Angie said my Roxannes are shipping this week...apparently my latest email made them sensitive to my plight...
