[Review] Noble Audio Kaiser 10 - The Wizard Rises Again - Page 4

post #46 of 346
I am. Still saving for now. I'll buy it in November. Around the 10th. If I got some time and enough energy I'll compare them to the miracles.

Looking forward to that comparison!

 

Now if JH Audio are reading this, feel free to send me the 12-driver Roxanne and I'll be happy to do a comparative review with the K10. Somebody honestly should compare these crazy flagships but I really don't have the cash to blow on such an act of community service :smile:

AmberOzl, how about you take one for the team and order the K10 so you can share your thoughts? I know the SE5 is the top dog silicone ciem on the planet, so a comparison seems in order! :D 

 

Edit: In all seriousness, we really need a SE 5-way owner to review the 5S. Neutral TOTL vs. fun-sounding newcomer. Should be fun! 

 

Go for it! From the pictures I can tell Wizard's silicone CIEMs are the best in the world aesthetically, they're literally of jaw-dropping quality!

Yes they look spectacular, but have you seen the reviews of the Spiral Ears Reference 5? :eek:

Yah, but I'm talking about the look, the look! And we're talking about Wizard here so no way it's gonna sound bad.

While we do not know how other companies such as Spiral Ears craft their silicone CIEMs, all I can say that it is not easy. Spiral Ears seems to have some exceptional products on their hands and a comparison would be interesting.

Once told that your ears sweat more, I lost interest. A great fitting pair of acrylic shells couldn't be more comfortable. I now find standard tips less comfortable after owning acrylic customs. Unless you need a bit more isolation, I'd think hard shells fine for anyone unless you have odd ears that need really long nozzles or hard to install bends etc. It's great that those individuals at least have an option now.

For this price the question is not whether it'll sound good or bad. It's whether it'll sound excellent or exceptional... and this remains to be seen (heard!)

Wizard is truly an artist when it comes to making CIEMs~

Yep when you see the complexity inside the SE5, I do believe you. I would indeed like to compare my SE5 with youe 5S...someday maybe.

Soren, believe me I would also like to have my own K10 but my student wallet still didn't resurrected completely yet. Anyway, there is a Wizard Signature Ciem in my 'to get' list. It is just matter of when I finish my master and get a job and settle down then order it.

 

About 5S, I am afraid it will be too bassy for me, I better go acrylic and save up for K10.

The build time for the SE 5-way is 3 months, it's an extremely complex design and with a sound signature closer to that of the K10 than the 5S (judging by reviews and descriptions).

I find my acrylic customs to be perfectly comfortable. Once you get a proper fit, the CIEMs just disappear when you insert them. I only feel the cables and I wear my CIEMs for 6-8 hours at a time.

Ops, sorry Soren but Grzegorz built my SE5way monitors in less than a week after he received my impressions. The whole process couldn't be smoother literally. Grzegorz is an exceptional man with exceptional skills.
