What material are the universals made of? Is it the typical acryllic?
post #828 of 7608

It's that this time of the year that I start to think of the great one... born in a stable and who had millions of followers...

 

RIP Seabiscuit.:bigsmile_face:

 

 

Merry Christmas to all Noble Customers... past, present & future... Noble-Europe :beerchug:

Not had too long on it, but even after coming from the K10, it still wowed me. There are a couple of 4C/4S reviews on here (Joker and Kunlun) and they do a much better job than I ever could. Compared with the K10, it has a bit less bass that although it doesn't really show up on most genres, it was noticeable on electronic/dance.  

 

I run the 4C from the Sony ZX1, and like my K10, I find I don't need to do any sound adjustments/enhancements. I was pleasantly surprised by the 4C. It's described as neutral and flat and this is something I've not gone for before. Plus, with the K10, I was worried it would dominate the 4C in everyway so much so that I would not use the 4C. It's still too early to say if this will be true, but I'm positive this won't be the case. For outdoor use, I will stick with the K10 as the added bass is needed.   

 

Edit: Regarding UPS. GRRR, they make me :mad:. They told me the address was incomplete, but I when I got the parcel, it wasn't. UPS's service really seems to go down during busier times. 

Damn, you're making me jealous! I have my K10, and I've got a 4C in production...but it's a secret Christmas gift for my fiancée.  Shh, don't tell her that getting ear impressions AREN'T a normal part of having your ears cleaned out. To make sure the wax is pulled out properly, of course! :D  Too bad I won't be able to steal them from her to listen...

 

I guess I'll have to make due with my 8.A and K10, and contemplate ordering an 8C for myself (what is this upgraditis? I have no idea...).  What I'd really like to see, though, is the Noble 6 in those sexy silicone sleeves. That'd make me drop some more money at the drop of a hat!

The focus on custom lately is nice, but I don't think the majority of people are going to crack spending $300 on an IEM

I believe all the Noble IEM's are injection molded plastic. The universal shells are all the same. The differences are the color of the screws and the internal components, of course. Oh yes, they all sound different too!

shipping confirmation received, set to pick up my N6 on Thursday!  As a parent of 3, I no longer get any gifts from anyone because I tell them to spend it on my kids instead so this is my gift to myself.  Merry Christmas!

We currently do not have a distributor in Australia, however we do ship to Australia. Shipping worldwide is, of course, included in the price of all our IEMs.

Awesome! thank you... time to speed up my saving :deadhorse:

Interesting... appearance-wise, the visible screws seem reminiscent of ASG-2's design.

 

Anyhow, very clean and beautiful. Can't wait to get mine in the mail. ;)

I like the color contrasting theme going on with the shell and cable

Do you find the Fusion cable really brings something to the K10 VZ? I use one with my SE5 and it works out pretty well but since I run it balanced I do not know what comes from the cable and what comes from using the full potential of the balanced card.

Wow this thread moves fast! Sorry if anyone asked a questions about 4C or 8C that I could have answered..... I've just been away too long I guess. Nice to see all these beautiful builds that are showing up!

It seems to have added more refinement to the K10.. I will compare them more after a bit more break in time :)
