@amberozl-Definitely not looking for separation at the gym, or Soundstage, just want some loud, pounding bass... It's damn near impossible to go back to something when you've heard some of these IEMS. I mostly lift weights, and never shower at the gym so theft is not an issue either. Plus, I bought these things to enjoy them, so I use them as much as possible.

Is there an email list to subscribe to, just in case, Noble ever did have another sale on one of these holiday weekends? I've got my eye on a Noble 4, or maybe if I sell everything i own, the 4S...

Where are Noble CIEM's made for North America? Only reason I'm asking is if ordering from Canada is there is no duty if assembled in USA

The CIEMs are made in China and shipped directly to you from there. So, you have to pay the import duty.  The universal IEMs are sent from Brannan in San Diego, CA, US, if I recall correctly.

I've got a couple dozen CIEMs total. I realize it's kinda ridiculous. I own (or have owned) models from Unique Melody, JH Audio, Westone, Lear, Heir, Noble, Cosmic Ears, Ultimate Ears, Earproof, 1964 Ears, FrogBeats, Kozee, LiveWires, and probably some others that I'm forgetting. I wouldn't say I'm "loyal" to any one company, though I do tend to appreciate certain brands more than others - you can tell I like them when I own more than one pair of their CIEMs. 

 

Of those, the Noble K10 is my current favorite, followed by the Noble 8C, then probably the JH13 FreqPhase tied with Westone ES5, then Unique Melody Platform Pure 6 tied with Cosmic Ears BA4, then the UM Merlin, and on and on down the list. 

 

I have not heard the Fitear yet, nor have I heard the Roxanne thus far. So I really can't comment on those. I happen to know a few people who own both the JH13 FP and the Roxanne, and some of them actually prefer their JH13FP. Others prefer the new model. But I really couldn't extrapolate this to the K10 without hearing the Roxanne for myself. So ultimately, not very helpful I suppose.

My apology for implying that you're loyal to noble audio. After reading some of your review, I have to admit that I was totally wrong on that.

No problem, I didn't really take offense to it or anything. Just wanted to clarify a bit. I know we have a lot of readers with many native languages, so a word like "loyal" could mean different things to different people.

No problem. I have widen the gaps between the overall scores, so don't be surprised if some scores are different now. :)
