Anyone still have a set of these in their rotation?  It seems like 2 year olds like the Miracles and SE 5-ways are still pretty relevant.  5 years would be killer, but I know how this hobby is smily_headphones1.gif

Still use my UE10 pros. Got them at the end of 2006/early 2007 maybe.

Well I am not sure but at least 4 years now. Why does this matter??

Doesnt really however if the 13s have been going strong for at least 4 years and likely will continue well into 5, I see no reason why the Roxannes wouldn't.

I was forced to sell my Miracles, due to financial difficulties, but I'd certainly consider buying another pair of Miracles some time in the future. They're not perfect but they do a great many things very nicely indeed.

 

...mind you, there were one or two murmurs that UM could no longer obtain the TWFK variant they had employed for the Miracles, originally (and which mine had), so whether the current iteration sounds the same as the original, I don't know. (ironically, I seem to recall the original variant had, unbeknown to UM, been inadvertently sourced from a consignment originally intended by Knowles to be exclusively for JH - perhaps the one used in the JH13, but I'm on shaky ground here so won't speculate further)

Ended up going for the K10 over the Roxanne. Looking forward to hearing comparisons between the two when they emerge. I'm sure both will be incredible.

Enjoy when they come in.

Curious what led you to decide on the K10.

I've loved the interaction between Noble and the community on the Noble thread here, and the initial impressions have been outstanding. Plus I love all their aesthetic options as well. They sound like they'll fit my needs perfectly.

Each of the CIEMs of the Siren series will be named after a lady who a famous rock song was named after.

I finally bit the bullet. It was a hard decision between the Roxanne and the Kaiser 10... damn that thing is pretty. But I gotta say this 24-driver-packed beast is too irresistible :) It's my first CIEM too. I hope it's the last one in the next 3 years!

Anyone know where we can buy roxanne universal at discount in US?

I had decided to resist Black Friday. Then I talked about it to my wife and she said: it is really stupid to buy the Roxanne 300$ more in 6 months if you can get cheaper right now. Guess who ordered a pair of Carbon Fiber Roxannes...

....I can't let you beat me on numbers of CIEMs, but looks like you already have :(

 

Now I finally have an excuse to order roxanne :p

Smart woman.

 

I CANT WAIT IT SEEMS LIKE ETERNITY.

 

Noble and JH are torturing me, it seems as if I will be getting both at the same time. I want to get them before our 13-hour flight in a few weeks :c
