Those are "Wizard Designs"

 

If you wanted a duplicate, you would need to check off "Wizard Reprint"  ($200)

 

 

But let me be clear.  Wizard Designs such as this can not be 100% duplicated. The "spirit" of the design can be captured, but the actually location of the swirls, size of the swirls etc etc can not be duplicated.

 

This work is unique as wood.

Hi, I'm really new to audio gears, hope to get myself a set of decent earphone and nvr regret or upgrading it for few years to come. I listen a lot to pop, R&B, alternative and sometimes I like to listen some classical too. Should I get 3C? Seems suits what I'm looking for.

That is a difficult question

 

In my opinon, the 3C will handle pop, R&B, DubStep etc....   tossing classical into the mix is a tall order.  That being said, the 3C witht he "R" option which mean a Reference driver is added to the 3 C (along with a switch)  would then make the 3C a well rounded product.

 

You would order the 3C and select "R" (refrence) as an option ($275)

 

Let us know if u have any further questions.

Is that mean addition of $275? That's a little bit out of my budget already. Maybe I should just dump the classical genre.. Haha..I'm still a student, and I was looking at lots of reference but most of them doesn't seem to hit the sweet spot, and I remembered "The Wizard" is back with Noble Audio and 3C seems to be really great based on reviews. smily_headphones1.gif

Yes the 3C is a re-tuned product, and in my opinion much better than my first 3 driver....

IMO you can consider the Noble 4 biggrin.gif it should handle Pop, R&B and classical very well while dubstep you can boost the bass a lil with EQ . That was what I did when I had the brainwavz bete and the clip zip, bass +2 and the combo lasted me one good year with my main genre being Metal with old pop songs such as ABBA, The Carpenters, Modern Talking. I do listen to a bit of Jazz (Norah Jones, Chet Baker) and classical/new age as well. Universal is also easier to resell when you want to upgade for the extra fund tongue.gif

Yes the 4C or if a universal IEM, the FR would work as well.

If Noble is doing another Black Friday Sale I think I will get the Noble 4 to complement my K10 :D

Maybe I will get 4C during Black Friday or I sacrifice more stuff to fund for 4C. Thanks Wizard and minhminh93. But I thought they said 4C is more analytical?
post #3671 of 24785
The 4c rides a thin line. Some folks call "warm" even.... But yes it is also called analytical, as well


The FR due to the fact it is a two in one product, pretty much eliminates any debate

Yes, that's why I suggested using EQ. From my personal experience, it's easier to go the analytical + bass boost route than the opposite as some of the warmer IEM in the market, to my taste, is quite veiled (I'm looking at you Westone IEM ...) and I tried to play around with the EQ but it didn't help. If possible you should demo the 3C and 4C (and mess around with EQ if you like) and see for yourself :D Our opinion and description, in the end, are what we hear and there is no guarantee that you will hear the same thing as me and something I find to be very true from a poster in another forum regarding reviews ...

In sound quality section, oh well...s ince I wrote some reviews before, I can guess it's mostly about all the goody bass, neutral mids, and extended highs. Oh, and also wide soundstage. Almost all gears out there have these descriptions.

Well, I live in Malaysia, it's way out of USA, so I can only read based on reviews. Well I'm gonna decide again. Plus, I'm still finding for this, maybe can only get it this year end. Wanted CIEM instead of universal fit.

@Calvin

I think it's a misconception that CIEMs are always better than universals for fit from person-to-person. Especially if you live a good distance from the manufacturer, it's really important that you get your impressions done perfectly the first time. Then due to things that may be out of your control, it's possible that even with well-done impressions the CIEMs don't fit you 100%. Best of luck with your decision.

I'm living in Singapore! If you are visiting Singapore you can drop by Treoo, the official dealer for Noble here, they have the all the units except the FR/PR model for demo.
