Noble Audio - the Wizard returns! - Page 157

post #2341 of 5370

Read the reviews, guys - at least I'm not the only nutter hailing the K10 as the 8th wonder of the world. 

 

We're all mad in here.

Man you're like the Katalyst of my K10 Kravings, your review was so eloquent and moving and after a long look at similarly well written to others, quite viable. Then there's something inside me that's haunting my dreams to let me give the SE5way a chance, I think I'll end up trying out the SE3way universal version (that's if I'm not completely floored with the Kaisers and wouldn't want to put another single thing in my ears at first impression, which is quite possible lol) with the K10 in some intimate listening tests with Joni Mitchell and Joanna Newsom sitting on my lap ;3. Very exciting developments all around in any case!

You do need the UPGRADE;)

Yep, that good.

Lol that's going a little too far is it? ;)

 

I do agree K10's signature is actually similar to HE500 (didn't think of it until you mentioned it), a little close to LCD 2, not much. HD800 is quite different to my ears though.

 

No doubt K10 is good. :)

And this is why, Sorensiim, your reviews will not be taken seriously by me :o

Kinda reminds me of what Les Brown said about Roger Bannister and the 4 minute barrier

I take his reviews seriously... Perception is reality.
I'm still buying these, based on his review and others too.

Seems like that post quietened this thread a bit?

Woot!

Hehe, looks like Noble Audio is definitely where my eyes and ears will be going soon. Everything I've read so far is wonderful, especially the tenacity of Dr. Moulton. 

I have an HE-6 right now, but I've been looking for an IEM to match its prowess (with much less finickyness, at that!). The big elephant in high end audio is once you acclimate to a certain level of sound quality, there's no going back...

 

In terms of IEMs, the best I have to my name are a pair of Brainwavz B2's. I'm not moving too fast, am I? :D

So I take it that its possible to buy the N4 then have Inearz do a reshell to make them customs? :wink_face:

that really is the hare & tortoise question... you'll get there eventually either way. :wink_face:

We encapsulate the interior of the IEM with JB Weld :wink_face:

Well John, that could make it quite a challenge.

That's fair enough, there are reviewers that I know I don't agree with, so I don't give too much weight to their opinions.

 

That being said, the K10 really does sound like the best of all three to me. Crazy levels of detail and layering like the HD800 with a neutral-but-slightly-warm signature somewhere between the HD800 and the HE500 with the speed and bass slam of the LCD2v2. You are, off course, entitled to your own opinion but there you have mine. Off course the K10 can't match the crazy vast soundscape of the HD800 - we're comparing CIEMs to full-size open headphones - but I still think the analogy holds up.

I've got that one as well. Love this version of "Yesterday was hard on all of us"!
