Noble FR (full-range reference) - $699

 

Listen analytically to one song and tap your feet to the next by switching seamlessly between two configurations that are natural complements.

 

F configuration (switch up) – Balanced, detailed, comprehensive. The full frequency range is well represented here. F stands for full-range.

 

R configuration (switch down) - Analytical, resolving, fast. An analytical sound with an emphasis on clarity. R stands for reference.

 

Specs

·            - Two separate configurations, two dedicated crossover networks

·            - F configuration impedance > 50 ohms

·            - 2 balanced-armature drivers

·            - R configuration impedance > 30 ohms

·            - 1 balanced-armature driver

·            - Detachable cable with industry-standard 2-pin configuration

·            - Silver pentalobe screws

 

 

Noble PR (pure reference) - $699

 

A purist’s earphone, switch seamlessly between two different interpretations of what “detailed” really means and hear minutiae you’ve never heard before.

 

P configuration (switch up) – Transparent, detailed, precise. Transparency and precision are all that matters here. P stands for pure.

 

R configuration (switch down) – Analytical, resolving, fast. An analytical sound with an emphasis on clarity. R stands for reference.

 

Specs

·            - Two separate configurations, two dedicated crossover networks

·            - P configuration impedance > 240 ohms

·            - 2 balanced-armature drivers

·            - R configuration impedance > 30 ohms

·            - 1 balanced-armature driver

·            - Detachable cable with industry-standard 2-pin configuration

·            - Rose gold plated pentalobe screws

Nice...so how are PR and FR tuned? How does the switch affect the sound? On which iems will the Wizard designs be available?

Dear Noble, do you ever take into consideration the affects you have on your customers? You keep destroying peoples wallets, not everyone can afford to keep buying new ones. :beerchug:

This seems very interesting, a crossover toggle switch if I'm understanding this correctly?

Wizard IEMs will be available on the Noble 3, 4, 5, 6 to start. All the Wizard IEMs pictured above are Noble 4.

For the first time, audiophiles and industry professionals can seamlessly switch between two IEM configurations, each with their own dedicated crossover network, without missing a beat. The result is an effortless experience that affords enthusiasts the ability to readily enjoy more than one interpretation of their music and professionals the ability to make more informed decisions on the fly.

Both the “full-range reference” Noble FR and “pure reference” Noble PR feature a discrete switch on the left and right faceplates. No additional tools are required and users can safely switch between configurations while their music plays. Furthermore, sustained use of the industry standard 2-pin socket configuration means that a countless number of aftermarket cables are already compatible.

The Noble FR and Noble PR are priced at $699 including shipping worldwide and will be available for immediate shipment in the next few days.

For an additional $275, the R configuration present in both the FR and PR can also be added to the 3C, 4C, and 5C acrylic CIEMs starting immediately.








As purveyors of the world’s finest CIEMs, we thought it would only be appropriate to also offer the world’s finest universal IEMs. Produced in extremely limited quantities due to constraints on his time, Wizard IEMs are meticulously handcrafted by the man himself. Each Wizard IEM is unique and is sold on an “as is” basis. In other words, Wizard IEMs are not made to order. What you see is what you get and once its gone, its gone.

The first lot of Wizard IEMs will be made available at the same time as the FR and PR.





















The entire team here at Noble would like to thank the community and everyone who has shown us support during the last six months. It has been a lot of fun thus far and we are the necessary making steps to ensure we can continue to provide the Noble experience our listeners have come to enjoy.

Long live Noble!
Really interesting and really nice! Great job!

Not only a crossover switch, also turning off drivers.

This event... I really REALLY wish I was on the west coast.  Amazing news!

Great to see the new products! Was getting a little worried after the recent K10 purchase.

Nope....

 

what Noble is doing, is litterally placeing two different IEM designs (x-over and drivers) in one housing, and adding an A/B switch.  So when you throw the switch, you will turn off one set of drivers (and deactivate the x-over to that driver(s))

 

The drivers are not being "shared" or being played/powerd in unison at any point in time.

 

It is like haveing a Porsche, and a Corvette in one garage, you have the keys and the ability to choose which car you want to take for a spin, depending on your mood.

 

No screw driver required.... just flip the switch
