Which of their tips did you go for? 

 

I have to travel for 5 - 6.5 hours by train every Friday and Sunday, so I'm very interested in their 'Isolation Plus' tips. Any experience?

 

I just used the ones that came with the EQ-5. I don't know about the isolation tips though.

 

If you need isolation plus comfort, the Complt TS-500 should work perfectly.

Thanks!

 

Not the cheapest of tips, but I'm not using the cheapest of earphones, either. They should arrive Thursday, but I'll give my 2c on Monday, as I would then have used them on two long train journeys, including the use of London underground.

Bought N6 few days ago.

So far, I'm really happy with it!

Congrats!

 

Here's a song that really shows what the N6 can do with vocal dynamics.

Could you suggest some other tracks that you love to listen with N6.

Thank you :beyersmile:

I received these yesterday:

 

 

Visually stunning. They needed a few of burn-in to open up. Today, they sound stunning, as well.

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!

First of all, the guys at Noble are awesome and I still can't believe I'm now a proud owner of something Noble!

 

Here's some quick impressions:

 

Fit/Finish/Packaging:      

 

First of all, the Cherry Coke Wizard-design is amazingly cool and incredibly unique. I don't know if I've ever seen anything like it, even in pictures. 

 

Eke hit the nail on the head as far as packaging - there's a ridiculous amount of tips (silicon/foam in a bunch on sizes) and the protective case is great for storage. Also, the cable is seriously amazing. It's pretty much tangle-free, light-weight, and soft. Couldn't possible ask for anything more there.

 

Eke touched on the large size of the nozzles a bit in his review, and unfortunately for me it's causing me to have an incredibly difficult time achieving a good seal. I've tried pretty much all the included tips and at least twice as many of my own with no luck. I usually don't have too much trouble with getting a good seal with iems either, so this definitely sucks to say the least.

 

Sound Quality:

 

Well this is obviously going to be short, and I wouldn't put too much stock in my impressions here anyways with the aforementioned seal issues. When I am able to achieve a half-way decent seal these things sound great, but understandably not as bassy as Eke describes them, which probably colors what I'm hearing anyways. The soundstage is on the smaller side, but the imaging is great, with a great center image with vocals. 

 

 

Overall:

 

I've been working with these for the past couple of weeks trying to get any of my tips to work and get a good seal without much luck. On paper, these seem like they'd be great for me, which just goes to show you that with universal IEMs, fit is probably the most important aspect to achieving good sound quality. Hopefully I'll find a tip that works for my ears with these bad boys. I'll probably order some Westone Star tips and give those a try next. Oh and if you guys have any questions at all feel free to ask.

Congrats on the N6. Just a heads up - westone star tips are made for narrow nozzle iems and won't fit the N6. Even if you manage to stretch them the bore size is way to small. I recommend getting the ortofon silicone tips.
