On a different topic, someone asked me (via PM) for help with some artwork for a competitor's CIEM. This led to there being a question about the necessary minimum pixel resolution, and I headed over to that competitor's website to find out if they state their minimum artwork resolution requirements. I haven't visited said website for many months, so imagine my surprise when I was confronted with the following statement emblazoned across the homepage:
"introducing the most beautiful (sounding) IEM in the planet"
Wow. That's quite a thing to self-proclaim about one's own product...
Quite an evocative statement.
Actually, the thing it most evokes in my mind is the word 'arrogant' and the phrase 'impossible to substantiate'
We have a regulatory body in the UK called the Advertising Standards Authority. The ASA are certainly no angels but I am quite certain that they would not allow such a statement in mainstream UK advertising channels.
Furthermore, if hundreds of pages of negative forum comments, here on Head-fi, are anything to go by, if I were the owner of said company, I hardly think I'd be making such bold bragging statements at this point in time.
I'm fortunate that I am not a MOT, and neither do I have any affiliation with any particular company, so I can discuss such things openly.
Anyway, sorry for the digression, here in the Noble thread, but I just thought it was such an outlandish assertion from a competitor that it might raise a few eyebrows amongst the Noble crowd, and indeed many other owners of various brands of CIEM, across the globe.
