Do you recommend I get new molds or just send you the old ones I took back in 2011?

 

we recommend you get new ear-impressions, hth.

Or Noble you get some special technique to tackle this?

 

 

This was a concern of mine as well.  Oddly enough when I had the PR connected to my J3 and Amp set up, there was hardly a "swing" but when connected to the AK 120, (and no amp) there was a noticeable difference.

 

In my opinion the shift is not anything alarming.   That being said, the PR is really for the pureist type hobbiest that would carry an amp to begin with.

Very interested in the PR series. Will there be a detail monster sleeping inside the case? Cant wait to try!

:D Are you trying to get me thrown out on the street. I'm seriously tempted though I don't know what I would do with two N4s.

I told everyone the news would be exciting! Yes, seeing the picture of that FR (or maybe it's a PR) is exciting, but let's not overlook the other important part of the announcement - adding the "R" option to a Noble CIEM! For me, the idea is very appealing. I have not heard the 5C but it supposedly sounds warm and full, along the lines of the original 8.A sound. So take that and add a reference, Etymotic type experience at the flip of a switch, and you've got both extremes covered in one CIEM.

 

Conceptually, it's like having opposing full size headphones in the same cups. Like a Grado PS500, then flip a switch and you have an LCD-2. Or a Denon D7000, flip a switch and it's an Audio Technica AD2000X. A very different sound, which may be more appropriate depending on the music.

 

I dunno how to explain it.... I just love the concept. But yes, the universal versions are exciting as well.

Ya know, the Noble bike needs to make an appearance at one of the meets. :wink_face:

Wow this is really great! 2 configurations in one IEM! That can really come in handy for those who don't want to collect IEMs...

 

I am very impressed with the Wizard design universals but at the same time sad coz I really wanted my N4 to have any of those designs.

 

BTW, will the Wizard design universals be priced differently from the original prices?

Looks like an Audi R8, Toyota Supra and a Ferrari combined in the body style. Plus the steering wheel is on the wrong side.

Yes, Wizard IEMs will generally be priced $200 above the the base price of an IEM. In this case, those pictured above will be sold at $650.

I've had 6hrs kip in 48hrs, I am well & truly 'cattle trucked'... all this excitement has been too much, almost as bad as waiting for Santa.

 

Vive la Revolution... Long Live Noble.

 

Take care all... :beerchug:

The bike was going nowhere a Noble supercar is where it's at.

 

Seems like different sound at a flip of a switch is the new thing.
