The creative finishes and artwork are in many instances beautiful but. I wear my IEM's out and about. I don't really want people peering at my ears wondering about the strange jewellery I am wearing. Do other people enjoy the attention that Wizard designs must attract?

 

A little short story that may sound OT at the start :-

 

A few years I was wearing my Shure E5c's in the office. My colleague of 7 years turned around to me and said, "Oh I'm sorry, I never noticed..." and for a brief moment I had to speculate what he meant. Then I realised that he thought I was wearing a hearing aid and that I had a hearing disability. It actually made me more conscious of wearing the E5cs after that.

 

My take about the Noble creations - if one can make something that sounds good to look good too, why not.

You should have looked straight at them and said "WHAT?!?". Too good of an opportunity to miss...

I never got the feeling people look at me wearing my CIEM's and thinking  anything weird what so ever about them. If anything, once and a while people will ask about them, its very rare though.

Agree, but it might depend on the design and it's why I wanted something low key

I would be more afraid of wearing Beats or Bose and people in the know laughing at me. :wink_face:

Some people enjoy the attention, I guess. After all, since it sounds good, why not look good, too? It's something personalized and unique, so I'd be proud to use one.

Not rude at all!  It's a matter of personal preference.  It's really all about the sound, so you can get a set with plain face plates and shells and be just as happy! :etysmile:

Don't worry, be happy now! 

 

I've always thought that the plain black carbon fiber would be the "stealth" approach, and what I planned on originally, but then I saw some of John's Wizard masterpieces and had to go with something that only Noble could make. 


Sound quality? Check. Aesthetics? Check. Happy customer? Hopefully ecstatic as soon as I get my K10's!!!

I think that's a safe expectation :wink_face:

Some folks drink champagne from a Dixie cup, and some folks would find that to be blasphemous


Different strokes for different folks

Nope. It's the fun part when people approach you and ask about it actually:p
