I'm looking forward to your impressions of the K10 vs the Roxanne.  I can promise you, though, the wait for the K10 is definitely worth it!

Wizard Design 4Cs with Carbon Fibre as a request. Probably not as jaw-dropping as the others, but it's an example of what can be done with Carbon Fibre.

K10s are now in my ears. These things are amazing.

 

First things I noticed:

1. Both the stem and the body of the CIEMs are longer than any of my previous CIEMs. Notably longer than the Hidition NT-6 Pro.

2. Those lows, bro! mad lows!

3. The design is even more stunning up close.

 

Currently listening to them with my AK120, First track was Porcelain Heart by Opeth, and illustrated the beauty of these babies.

I am really enjoying the kick drum on these things.  They don't hit quite as hard as the 8.A, but the overall all-around presentation of everything together is very addictive.  As for sticking out, yeah, they really do! I mentioned in my review that they stick out a few millimeters than my 8.As.  How else do you think they'd get 10 drivers in each ear? Isn't it really freaking crazy to think that we're listening to 20 miniature speakers in our ears right now?  I was blown away that you could have 3 in each ear (6 total) when the Shure E500 first came out...  My, times have changed!

I agree! They're slightly warmer than the JH13s, but less than the MH335DW. Soundstage is a smidge less than the JH13s while much wider than the 335s. SQ wise I actually really like them! And yes thinking about it, 20 speakers in your ear sounds crazy, even with today's standards.

 

I really hope Noble keeps raising the bar like this, coz this is amazing! I'll keep burning in and I'll report on progress after a week or so :)

Do the 8C fit in normally without sticking out like the k10?
post #684 of 24081
Look at the pictures in my review of the 8c. They do protrude quite a bit, yes. Probably due to these 2 huge bass drivers which are the same than the k10. But not ridiculously so.

If the 8C are anything like the 8.A (and they should be, having the exact same drivers), it will vary on a person-by-person basis, but I have fairly large ears and they stick out a little bit (from completely flush at the lowest point to about 2 mm at the highest point).  If your ears are smaller, they'll probably stick out a bit further.  This is why it's important that you get a full-shell impression.  I generally wouldn't worry about it; you don't notice it day-to-day, and honestly I only notice it when I'm trying to sleep on my side with them in (which I don't generally do with my acrylic CIEMs in my ear, as my ear canal shape changes enough in that position to make them uncomfortable; silicone is much more forgiving here].

Today.. I received a package and inside was a very cool looking box...

 

 

All I was truly fixated on in this exact moment was the "Noble" name and I immediately thought "it can't be true that the universals I ordered, already showed up without receiving an Email with tracking # etc."

 

So I rapidly ripped open the box, eagerly anticipating to stuff the goodies into my ears...

 

What a disappointment... utter letdown... I can't even express it in words.... I should  have posted a picture of my face but I'm not really into selfies...

 

Instead this was what I saw and immediately realize that had completely forgotten.. that I had purchased a pajama as a X-mas gift, not for myself, very important that I point this out.. but it was for someone else that it hopefully will suit better, please don't tell my wife!

 

 

 

I know, not funny to most of you guys but it is actually a true story and of course a little later I noticed that the logo was upside down...:tongue_smile:

Wow, Noble really is diversifying! I had no idea they launched a clothing line too. The Wizard is so talented. :D

Oh my god that is freaking hilarious! I busted a gut at your burst bubble/letdown. I can picture the facial expression although I have no idea what you look like. Thanks for sharing.
