Noble K10 vs JH Roxannes - Page 16

post #226 of 400

Both are pretty good. The connectors of roxanne are obviously a pain if you followed the thread. K10 has a little better build quality IMO.

Great comparison & cheers. I agree with most points you've mentioned except with K10s I feel it doesn't have as much upper trebles as the universal Rox I'm borrowing from Currawong.

Great brief impressions though.

Hey, thanks :-)  I'm not very sure myself too. Given the tips were very different between the two and I was trying to compare them in two separated sessions. I am inclined that you're more right than I, LoL.

 

So, what's your personal opinion, do you prefer K10 or Rox?

But both K10 and roxanne are warm actually. K10 does extends further, like AnakChan says, K10 is more linear and smooth at lower treble compared to roxanne. 

No no, I didn't mean quantity :-)  The bass that presented by the Roxanne was more fuller and wrapping around my head (maybe due to the soundstage), hence I was thinking it like a basketball thrown to me; On the other hand, K10 gave me a more consolidated (?) punch that felt like a baseball hitting me, maybe hurt more and more pinpointing.

 

If I have a better tips with the K10 my impression may change quite a bit.....hum....

 

(Disclaimer: I placed my order for a K10 a few days ago so I'm not saying I don't like them, :D)

@Nevin-Thanks for sharing. Probably too short and not an ideal environment to make a good decision. Sounds like it could go either way for you. Personally, I think you'll be happy with either. Are you doing a Wizard K10 or did you design your own?

Yeah the environment was far from ideal in having any serious judgements. So far base on my personal taste, I would say the Roxanne has a tad superiority, probably due to the soundstage. 

 

I did go for a Wizard K10 but Brannan kinda gave me a death sentence after he heard what I want (as some guidelines).

That's what I thought you were getting at, slightly favoring the Roxannes. I'm sure they are both amazing... I'm very happy where I am with IEMS... But damn those Roxannes and the adjustable bass pot!!

I am a lazy person and once I settle with a bass setting I don't think I will change them often (I didn't change my IE8's bass for years) :-)  

 

2 o'clock was pretty satisfying anyway.

I'd always be messing with that, especially when listening to different genres of music. I love that option. What are you using as a source?

Maybe once in a while for fun but certainly not some daily, or weekly tuning :-P

 

I'm using AK240 and my Mac as source.

I'd say, you'll be happier with the K10. Why? You'll get the K10 a hell of a lot faster!!!

What made you go for K 10 ? Sorry for asking. Kinda.

LoL... that's probably true. I think the time different would be closer if we're comparing acrylic Roxanne. Jerry yesterday said it takes 21-day to make acrylic Roxanne.

1) Good reviews here.

2) Superb customer handling from Noble. Brannan especially. He is the guy that drag people back due to his good service.

3) Wizard design.

4) SQ wise I think that's a more tougher decision for me.

I think the universal (demo) K10 has less bass rumble, making it a little more neutral than my custom. 

 

Hi Tupac,

 

I had a different experience with the K10 demo from HK. I spent several hours with them and found them awfully bassy and congested. Their bass had more quantity than my Merlin (custom); in comparison the LCD2 sounded dead flat. Treble sounded recessed and the mids were congested. I have not heard the K10 customs but I can't imagine they sound the same. I also remember the SG demo sounding more balanced and airier.

 

It seems ear anatomy has a big influence on how demo pairs sounds, therefore I find it as important to try demo whenever possible as read feedback from users.

Hi 

 

The demo I listened was with a Hugo. From your impressions, I think the tips also plays a very important part here (I think the one you use insert very deep, and also scattered lots of treble frequency, K10 is a warm sounding CIEM though). This is probably why you can see lots of different impressions on universal CIEMs. because tips can even change it from north to south. I also have friends saying that K10 demo sounds very bassy. That wasn't the case for me. I actually loved the demo a lot and wished that my custom could sound the same. 

 

The custom k10's bass sounds similar to the demo but with more quantity which becomes a problem for me now, because it's a little bit slow that can affect the presentation of mids and treble. I don't think the bass can be compared to a well driven LCD 2, just not really close IMO.
