I have a 3C and to me the stark difference between it and the tf10's is clarity. The 3C's are much more clear sounding.

I believe that both Brannon and Dr. Moulton have stated there will be no universal K10, as it would be too large. Just the bass armatures alone in the custom K10 are quite large.

Thanks for the info, i guess Noble 3 is pretty fit my needs.

May I ask why?

 

I'm considering the K10 as my 1st CIEM so any inputs are much appreciated, thanks.

To the right, you can see the side of the 4 twin-driver units responsible for mids and highs. To the left you can see one of the bass drivers.

 

They are in-fscking-sane but always under complete and total control... Nearly a year in and I'm still madly in love.

He is poisoned enough, don't overdose it man :D

Ordered Sunday night, arrived today… & Public Enemy got it wrong - DO believe the hype.

 

These are tuned to perfection (for me) - great detail without dismantling musicality to deliver it, sufficiently weighty bass & airy treble when required, and surprisingly forgiving of sub-par recordings or low-ish quality rips. All in all, a remarkable triumph.

 

For those who shared my concerns that the housings seem large to the point of discomfort, worry not - in fact getting a good seal with them is easier than on any iem I've owned - and all the better for not needing ear-raping insertion depth to do so.

 

Only downside is, having convinced myself long ago that dropping £1000 on a pair of customs is akin to insanity, suddenly - assuming the tuning is of a 'the same, only more' variety, a pair of K10's at some point in the future now seems inevitable… Who needs two kidneys anyway?

 

Enough of this, I've got 2000 albums to go and rediscover...

Wow, that was quick. If I didn't already have the 4C, I would have gone for Lot 1 #2. 

 

Grats on a very special N4. 

 

Ps. Go for the K10 as well. :ksc75smile:

They look awesome! Did you get stung with import duty & VAT when they were delivered?

post #2909 of 14269

Does anyone have the 3s?  Overall impressions?

post #2910 of 14269

I know, ridiculously quick eh?… & no additional import duty or VAT! The cost advertised for the iems on Noble's site seems to include everything. Doesn't really get any better does it?

 

Now I have them in my mitts, I maybe should've gone for one of the more organic designs as that approach is probably more sympathetic to the form of the driver housings - I'd bet #1 and #4 look ravishingly jewel-like - but not something I'm about to lose any sleep over.
