Noble Audio - the Wizard returns! - Page 338

post #5056 of 5664

Anyone successfully tried tip-rolling with their universals?

 

They seem extraordinarily insertion-depth sensitive & (for me) there's definitely a sweet spot for a good seal, so find myself constantly having to adjust the fit. Has anyone found other ear tips that work well with Noble's nozzle form factor? Find I get on best with the larger stock tips.

Got a hold of Brannan via PM and he was able to answer my questions. He recommended the 5C for what I am looking for. Thanks all for the suggestions and quick responses.

With my N6 and my ears (which are definitely on the larger side, and, quite probably, also more than a bit finicky:smile:), I had good results with Comply 500 in Large (400s fit too, even though with some more difficulty), Ortofon L, Sony Hybrid LL and the JVC Spiral Dot tips  (the ones who come standard on the FX850), still in L

I used to use Comply tips when I had universals. If you can find a set that fits there's none better.

Kick off the weekend by checking out this electrifying set of emerald green Kaiser 10 with a sweet silver interior, clear exterior, shell.

 

With that being said, have a great weekend everyone! We'll see you on the other side.

I visited with Noble Audio and Brannan at the Washington, DC Canfest Capital Audio show yesterday. It was great to listen to all the different Noble models and meet with Brannan who was very helpful. I recommend anyone in the MD/VA/DC area who has time today stops by the show. I own the Noble FR wizard universal and very much like them, I plan to do a review later next month but my overall impression is that switching back/forth between the modes will teach you more about your listening preferences based on how a song is recorded, your mood and time of day and how that impacts whether you want a relaxed or technical sound, and style of music than any other way. For those searching for their favorite sound, it may reduce the wait for Godot so many of us find ourselves in when buying headphones of all kinds. I mainly listen to full size headphones (lcd-3. Ath-w5000, he-400) and like the FR a lot, it's a nice compliment and allows for very close and satisfying listening. I often switch back/forth during songs and even sometimes mix the modes aka R in my left ear, F in right. Relative to listening and picking the right model, I feel that more drivers does not necessarily translate to the sound you may like best. Each iem is tuned to a slightly different sound profile. At the same time I will say that the Noble 10 was fantastic. So sometimes more is better, but I can't say that's universally the case after listening to all the models. I walked away feeling my FR purchase was the perfect one for me.
