Very highly recommended with the K10!! 

 

 

 

This is the kind of thing I keep telling people. With a really good CIEM (like K10 or 8C among others), the scaling is practically limitless. I don't know if people really believe me. But it's absolutely true! I'm listening to the 8C on a BMC PureDAC right now, through a Toxic Cables Silver Widow balanced cable, and the result is jaw-dropping.

I'm looking for a couple of Guinea-Pigs in the UK (includes Ireland) who own Noble Universals... email me via the website (Noble-Europe), it's all good. :bigsmile_face:

UK only? Please let us know if you need any guinea-pigs from other european countries. Such as... i don't know... Denmark perhaps. :rolleyes:

I might have missed the information but, is Noble 5 universals are the same Heir 5.0? I think they are also upgraded/improved version of the old Heir iem but still I wanted to be sure.

Its suppose to have the same concept of being a universal to their 8 driver. From what people have said about the two 8 drivers, the noble 8C has more extended highs and slightly more towards nutral than the 8.A

So 5.0 was like universal 8A, therefore Noble 5 is like universal 8C? That's what I was trying to confirm.

Has the Noble 5 seen any redesign from the Heir 5 other than the shell?

The 5.0 had the overall signature from the 8.A, but was less refined. Haven't heard the updated version but I think I saw somewhere that it was the same design.

I believe that the 5 is a direct port from the 5.0.  IIRC, I believe Brannan said earlier in the thread (correct me if I'm wrong) that if you already had the 5.0, there was no point in getting a 5, because it was the same design.

You've got wall-to-wall cameras over there, so we vikings had to find new hunting grounds...

Same question to owners of JH13, Miracle, W4 etc. How does the bass quantity and bass impact of the K10 compares?

 

Like many people using bass-heavy CIEMs, I sometimes wish for a leaner and more transparent sound on acoustic/orchestral music, but the worst-case scenario would be to realize the bass is too light and makes dance tracks sound anemic (it's the case of the W4 IMO).

 

By reading impressions: Noble 4 < Miracle < JH13 < K10 << 8C, JH16 ?

The K10 is very neutral but has the ability to hit you with thunderous bass - if it's in the music. You might want to skim my review:
