Noble Audio - Introducing KAISER ENCORE and SAGE

Introducing KAISER ENCORE and SAGE

 

Noble Audio is proud to announce Kaiser Encore and Sage, the latest additions to the Noble family. 

 

Kaiser Encore ($1850) directly replaces the award-winning Kaiser 10, while Sage ($599) replaces the Savant.

 

 

 

 

Kaiser Encore

ten balanced armature configuration

 

Kaiser Encore is the successor to Noble’s previous award-winning flagship IEM, the Kaiser 10 (K10).

 

The Encore retains the musical essence of the K10 and features a retooled midrange that provides additional clarity and more accurate tonal balance while still integrating seamlessly with the rest of the audio spectrum. Improvements in midrange response contribute to a larger soundstage and presentation compared to the K10 with more precise imaging and superior spatial representation.

 

Encore features proprietary Noble drivers throughout bringing additional refinements to the piece, as well as precision machined creative aluminum housings designed and manufactured locally in California.

 

 

Universal priced at $1850
Custom from $1850
Prestige from $2850

 

Available for reservation now at nobleaudio.com

 

 

 

 

 

Sage

two balanced armature configuration

 

Sage follows the footsteps of the Savant and features proprietary Noble drivers that result in a more refined and capable sound.

 

Reconfiguration of a vented port on the bass driver delivers increased low-end extension with more texture with a slight lift in overall bass response.

 

 

Universal priced at $599

 

Available for reservation now at nobleaudio.com

This is probably emotional devastation for someone who just bought the kaiser 10. Look forward to seeing impressions on how the two compare

Don't get me wrong, they ARE absolutely gorgeous like you said, but essentially all the Noble Universals share a design so not sure if they're outdoing themselves here. Perhaps we can compliment their impeccable color hue choices?

When a product has 26 consecutive 5 star reviews, has maintained its position as the number one ranked design on head fi longer than any product on the history of head fi...

It would be wise to maintain similar qualities with the replacement product.

The Kaiser 10 has had a good run, but it is a 3 year old design, comparatively speaking, 3 years is a very long time in this industry

Own the K10 universal, as well as some other quality universal monitors. Was not very impressed by the K10 with alot of factors. The universal model is very generic to the fit of the ears, moreso that other universals. The metal also creates issues of fit and comfort. When I get the K10 to stay stable in my ears, the sound is good, not great. Maybe my expectations were too high?

Sorry to hear they didn't work out that great for you, luckily we have other products as well, which may be more suited to your tastes.

I have yet to work a show where someone didn't like the K10, they are not for everyone, what is? Like John said, maybe another flavor, you could be a Katana guy.
