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...







Nice photos. smile.gif

Those look fabulous.. I wanted lot 1 No 2, but was too slow. Not enamored by any of the others so i will wait until the next lot appears. I am sure there will be some more but probably not until this lot have sold.

 

The photo you took really shows off the build quality.

For someone who the UM3X is pushing the outer ear limits, would the Noble 4 be too large? The thickness looks a little worrying.

The noble universal is quite small. I have really small ears and they fit really well. Awesome isolation and seal as well.

They are beautiful indeed… Would love to know what the production runs are, but you're right, there're bound to be more designs further down the line… Just hope nothing pops up that makes me want them more - can't afford to have a collection.

 

Build is excellent as you'd expect - wasn't keen on the exposed screws of the stock models so was very pleased when they started doing these limited editions. Makes total sense given that - aside from sound quality - Noble's reputation seems to be being built on their stylishly adventurous custom designs.

 

Thankfully, the universals - based only on my new N4's - sound every bit as good as they look too.

Are there any photos of what one of the custom IEM would look like with the R configuration? Just wondering how discrete the switch is, or if it limits customization options.

Does anyone know what the delivery time is like to the UK?

No photos (yet)

As far as the switch aesthetics, size etc, it is the same as the switch being used on the universal products. As for limiting the art etc etc, in theory the switch certainly would have the potential to limit the art.
