Kova4a, thank you so much for the response!

 

I picked up my own pair of Noble 4's over the weekend.

 

This thing is amazing. I thought I would miss the bass, but the amount of detail in the treble more than makes up for it.

Has anyone tried the Noble 3 (Classic) yet? I have and they are spectacular in my humble opinion.

Well, can't do a direct comparison and will have to go by memory but tf10 and gr07 are both bassier while the N4's low end is faster and cleaner with only a bit of a mid-bass boost but rolling off slightly early. With that said N4's bass has better presence and is more impactful than sets like ety er4 or twfk-based iems like dba02, b2.

The mids is where the N4 really shines with its smooth and balanced presentation and great detail. The gr07's mids are laid back and lacking in clarity in comparison. Tf10 will be extremely recessed in direct comparison to the slightly mid-centric N4. Overall, N4 is clearer and more natural in this area, especially to the distant and more artificial sounding tf10. 

At the top end N4 is smoother and A LOT more refined next to the splashy gr07 and the harsh and edgy tf10. 

On the other hand, while being relatively airy and with excellent imagining, the N4 would be a bit intimate sounding, especially next to tf10 but that it is to be expected as V-shaped signatures lead to bigger perceived sound with more distance between the instruments while in comparison N4 is more coherent and conveys intimacy better. 

 

P.S. Again, I have to mention that I'n going by memory and also I never really liked tf10 and thought it was overhyped

Not a problem going by memory as those impressions can be archived anytime,like this. wink.gif....Im ok with it. The mids are the one I was worried on those and looks like thats N4's strong appeal besides its quick lows and refined Hi's......Last week I had ordered HM601E+RE400,combo deal and still waiting for HD.com's shipment update.......gotta have to wait atm.....I think N4s wld be a two/three fold upgrade over the waterlines......hows the fit with the supplied stock tips.....

Wished I wld a get reponse fom you and you did it in time......ty chief.

Well, fit is good, as the N4 is more on the thick side than having a bulky form factor that can't fit in the outer ear but of course, it's still an individual thing. They fit great for me.

Should be but often times there ares some minor variation between length of the pins or their thickness,  which can affect how a connector fits in a certain socket.

ok noted.....so may be once or twice with gentle inserts and unplugging is fine if it fits.....
