It depends, a re-print of an already done design is + $200, so the K10 is $1599 + $200. The K10 with a wood inlay and a Wizard signature is + $300, so $1899.

Ultimately , this is the nature of art, your iems may be more beautiful than the ones I just posted to another person's eyes. This is really not about early adoption or obsolete technology etc

To me, the early Porsche 911's are just as nice looking as the present day 911's. Albeit, the beauty is different, they are still beautiful

I think the beauty of the wood inlay in this picture comes from the symmetry of the oval faceplate. So i wonder if k10s can get the same cosmetic effect with the irregular shaped faceplate.

Btw, the wood inlay in this picture looks even better, much brighter.

Maybe i should consider this as well.

The Wizard Design is dazzling and its pretty hard for me to decide how to design my k10s.

I love the color combination of both inlays, I just like the red, brown and lighter wood one better. Imagine that inlay on a translucent red shell. It would look amazing IMHO.

My apologies if you felt my comments to be barbed or critical - they were absolutely not meant that way, more as a playful nod of respect & admiration to the continued evolution of your ideas. Rest assured, I still get the buzz of pleasure that comes with owning anything beautiful & rare every time I reach for my iems - and enjoy espousing the joys of the Noble Audio experience both artistically and sonically when asked about them (which happens on a weekly basis when I'm out & about on London Transport). No buyer's remorse here.

 

Making limited edition, universal fit iems of superlative capability is a genius move, & puts Noble in a unique position that's to be celebrated by anyone who cares about such things - & that includes me.

I love that one, too. But i prefer to an amber shell with 24k gold nugget. I think it will be pretty cool

Will there be free tissues at this event?… I might have a problem with all the drooling it'll prompt.

Like your style…Wonder if they come with a wood inlay option?

I have joked in the past about having water and live fish inside a face plate. Well, the water part has now been done, I will let you people figure out who did it. Now I am thinking Noble can create some kind of colored gel or fluid to use. Make different colored sections, so you can have a multi colored gel face plate. Teach that other company who the real KING is. :wink_face:
