Please update us of the final outcome. I hope it works out for the better...

Unless he cocks it up and kills the phones, I'd think an improvement is pretty certain. :D

With all the new stuff that's coming out this year... I highly doubt it. hehehe

I think I'm gonna focus on hybrids after the Noble 4. They seem to have a bit of a following these days.

So next on my list is the AX35. Then we have two OZ tours coming: UM 3X and H300. 

Plus there's one more that's about to be announced. Happy days!

 

Cheers mate!

Yes, that would be good :wink_face:

 

I am finally at the end of my journey (I think :wink_face:) as I have found my holy grail in a hybrid, that is UM Merlin with eBay's SPC cable (recommended by uncle H20)

14. Noble 4 (universal) Unboxing
 

 

UPS left a present for me! You can only imagine the smile on my face the moment this box fell into my hands :normal_smile :

This is it! My first venture into the $500 realm. Let me share the pleasure of unboxing this masterpiece from Noble Audio.

 

 

Once opened, I was greeted with the proud logo of Noble Audio. The main item is properly packed well protected by foam inlays and it shows how much the manufacturer really values their product.

 

 

I can't wait to see what's inside...

 

 

Pandora's box has been opened! Full of goodies...

 

 

Contents: Noble 4 IEM, Noble cable, SML (red) Silicone tips, SML (blue) Silicone tips, SML (black) Foam tips, SML Bi-flange tips, IEM nozzle cleaning tool, 2x Noble bands, Noble Owner's card, and Noble Pelican Hard case.

 

 

A closer look at the tips... they are not of high quality but does the job. I'd recommend the use of your other favourite tips. The Noble bands are really nice!

 

 

The Pelican Hard case is well built and looks decent. Foam lining within the case is properly installed. No complaints here.

 

 

And finally, the Wizard's work for us to hear. I really like the cable... it's supple, doesn't tangle, seems durable, and light-weight. The connectors fit securely and really tight which is good because they don't slip off easily. If I were to nit-pick, I'd say I prefer a branded piece at the Y-intersect; but that's just for show so not a big deal for me. I'd also prefer a 90degree jack over the 45degree but still not critical IMO.

 

 

The IEMs are made of plastic. I would've love a light-weight metal housing but that would also increase the price. I do appreciate that the Noble logo is engraved on the housing and not just some cheap print or sticker. The screws also add a bit of industrial accent which I really like. They are very light and surprisingly small! I can't imagine anyone having fit issues with these as I already have small ears and they fit perfectly.

Great job Noble Audio! Totally worth it IMO... thank you for the swift and easy transaction!:beerchug:

 

So stay tuned for my Review and as a teaser this is my first impression:

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
I can't detect any flaw! :eek:

I need your help, I have difficulties choosing what flavor of jelly I should become...

 

 

 

Why is this important? Because you got yourself an awesome custom-in-ear for $500 and are enjoying it to who knows what limit of audio nirvana! :angry_face:

 

Glad you got your present early! I hope this review will be lengthy but articulate! :o2smile:
