Kunlun is brewing on a review of the K10 as well, so a second opinion should be available soon :-)

I am intrigued by your thoughts as well! Did you really try them or is this based off of what you have read?

Just based on what I read and the cable of the roxanne, I have some custom cables with the normal connector pin. And now the roxanne has the new pin, I cant use my old cables. So I prefer the K10.

You never know until you hear it for yourself.

We choose ciem base on reviews and intuition, we don't have a chance to hear until we own one

Yeah, that's the problem with CIEMs - we can't audition them so we have to read reviews to judge if a given CIEM is the right choice. Kunlun has posted his great review of the K10 here:

And be sure to ask all the questions you may have before sinking $1600 into these gems!

My next set of ciems in the next 5 years. Shouldn't have seen this thread and reviews about Noble's CIEMs as I'd just sent my impressions with my 4.Ai to Heir audio for reshelling. 

 

On a positive note, the Wizard was from Heir. 

 

Really looking forward for the next 5 years. I wonder if he will tweaked the same configuration as the 4C for my 4A if i'd sent to him for reshelling services :D

Btw great in-depth reviews to those who have tried Noble's ciems.

What kind of portable amps might y'all recommend for a high end CIEM like the K10?

I am too long invested in the Apple ecosystem to use anything but an iPod for the player, but I am totally open for amp ideas. I would like something with great battery life (20 hours minimum) and low impedance, good for sensitive iems, and no hiss/noise floor.

I had a JDS C241 that I really liked but didn't last long enough for me. I have another one that had great battery life but is unshielded and hence gets a lot of electronic interference.

Thoughts/recommendations?

Alo The National. Works great with my JH16 and Compact Monitors Stage 4.

I'd recommend the apex glacier for a very nice tubelike sound that still has very good clarity and extension. It's a good match for the Kaiser 10.

Heir Audio does the R1 amp that's a reasonably priced amp that goes well with IEMs but is powerful enough to make the HE500 sing. Plus, it lasts 30+ hours on a charge. I wonder if Noble might come up with an amp of their own one day? There are also the Pico amps that get a heck of a lotta praise around here.

You can try the centrance M8 if you have chance, I really like that amp, it extends the soundstage and makes the sound a bit lighter
