Noble K10 vs JH Roxannes - Page 14

post #196 of 398
After pressuring they now replied with the following:

The order will be shipping out sometime next week It's already finished and will now have the custom case made. E cannot change the order it already been built.

To me it sounds like an excuse for not refunding and buying some more time. But who knows, next week we will know the truth.

Any update for us?

Shure! They have shipped the order 5 days ago. Mind you mine wasn't CF. The root of all delays are on the CF manufacturing. Still haven't received tho. DHL should pop by on Monday to deliver!

By refusing to provide an ETA it means customers can't even decide to keep on waiting or request a refund.

It looks like the only way to get a refund from them is to use legal threats.

In plenty of countries you can't even charge before the product actually ships. Unless it is built-to-order and even then if the process for building it has not started you can still cancel. It seems that they are hoping they can get away with it as long as they can really.

Just a brief reminder, as of posting this there is a little bit more than 10 hours left on Wizard's nameday sale. 

 

If you are on the fence, come on in and join the party!

Can't take it any longer... Noble it is... just have to wait for them to get my money back.

+1

Was on the fence for Noble or JH earlier. Went w/ Noble K10. Never bought a JH before but the slow speed of reply to new order inquiries from JHA really put me off. Almost felt they didn't really want or care for the new order/business.

Others may feel differently or gotten better service. It could be that I was just trying to buy something from them at the wrong time, but if they are this slow or not trying hard to get "new" business, I can only imagine what type of speed and service they give for other inquires like warranties, complaints, repairs, etc.

Just my $0.02

If i were to buy an alternative to my ie 800's, would a Noble k10's purchase leave me without regret? is the soundstage/imaging more detailed on the k10's? Just incase, I might aswell say I dont like the Shure se846 if they share a similar signature to the k10's.

ime, the 846 is warmer but both of them have forward vocals.

 

As an alternative, YES! without regret :etysmile:

I'm thinking about upgrading my 16's even though they are like, perfect.  But upgraditis makes me wonder if there is something that is perfect-er lol.  Looking between the roxannes and k10s as well.  K10's seem to have the sexiest design.  Just wondering if anyone can compare the bass if they got both.  I use the jds c5 amp bass boost and the jh16s are just so awesome, so if anyone can compare the two with bass boost on, (bass detail, extension, decay, how it affects the mids etc) that would be awesome.

Bass detail....





The Noble K10 uses a CI driver for bass... The CI is the largest driver offered by Knowles

Sometimes I find myself listening to higher volumes than I used to, with zero listening fatigue, which is a good sign. I would say that (coming from JH16), they exceeded my expectations. I wanted (and was expecting) less bass and more high frequency extension, and that's exactly what I got. But there is more than that, there is clearly more detail in the midrange and increased sound stage.

 

Short comings... just one. The short cable. I ordered a 64" but JH didn't say anything about only the 48" being available. 48" works fine for jacket breast pockets, but it does not work well for pants pockets, and in the summer I have no other place to put my phone.

 

I agree with FullCircle that you really should not let the driver count sway your decision. Once you reach these numbers, overhead is meaningless, it's all about how they are tuned to sound. Personally, the Roxanne is approximating perfection for me. I'm sure that the K10 sounds just as good, but I can't objectively speak for it.

 

I don't agree with those that said the bass pot is not useful. I like to have control of the bass, because more often than not it tends to be tuned too high for my taste and that affects all other frequencies. If it's there then you can adjust it, if not then your only resort is EQ, which is a pain if you use multiple devices. Again, the K10 may be tuned just right, but as a buyer I have no guarantees unless I test a demo. Roxanne gives you a little bit of adjustment freedom in that sense.

 

But as I said earlier, all things being the same (SQ wise), I would choose the Roxanne for the cable collars. The sound is... how shall I put this... more than good enough. If there is any untapped improvement left (which the K10 may or may not have), it's minimal.

 

Either way, both seem like great end game products. You can't go wrong with either one.

One thing though that I haven't seen considered but may be somewhat important is that Noble is very responsive here on Head-fi and reminds me of The guys from Fiio. Both companies seem to care very much what we here at Head-fi think and I know Fiio puts that care into their products. I so much like and appreciate that and it is a rare quality, don't you think?

On the other hand, I have yet to see any comment here at all from JHA. Can anyone prove me wrong?
