    Hello Mr. VisceriousZero ,  Welllll , you write an Impressive set of opinions , I believe you , it's compelling !!   Are the Noble Kaiser 10 the best transducers you own ? , I get that "Feeling" from your writings . 1 year of ownership , this in not an Impulse reaction to something new , you've had them a goodly length of time and still they impress , that is quite incredible in of itself , people adjust and re-calibrate .     I read you to be using a range of transducers , you certainly have quite a few .     Are any of your Headphones close to the performance level of the Noble Kaiser 10s ?     Strong reviewing ,      Thank You  ,      Tony in Michigan

    mmmmmmmmmmmmm all of these reviews are so positive, but they are so expensive :c Either way, great review. Very few people explain the ordering process for ciems but i'm glad you did because it definitely added to your review!

    Hi, great review!  Would you mind comparing it briefly with Roxanne? Thanks

    I have owned the westone es-5 for a few years now.  I custom eq them to be more neutral and so far nothing has compelled me to want to upgrade until hearing about the k10's.   I will definitely be keeping my eyes on these.

    Cuz I'm 17, I don't want to go custom then have to reshape my CIEM if my ear shape changes so I'm waiting for the universal<3

    I don't have the CIEM experience that you have.  In fact, the K10's are my very first customs!  I am so happy with these that I can't believe how lucky I was to make these my first pick!

    Hi guys! Thanks for the replies. I'll be doing a K10 vs Rox vs Mentor vs others soon in my thread: [url=http://www.head-fi.org/t/740936/tales-from-the-batcave-me-and-my-friends-review-stuff]http://www.head-fi.org/t/740936/tales-from-the-batcave-me-and-my-friends-review-stuff[/url]   Thanks and please don't hesitate to PM me :)

    I listened to the non custom version at RMAF. I thought the highs were exaggerated and I am an older guy who probably has some high frequency loss. I still continue to use my AKG 3003 which I had with me for an A to B comparison.

    +1 for Westone ES-5 "Even with classical pieces the instruments are rendered in a very satisfying manner." They sound great for a capella Renaissance vocals, but clarity is absolutely needed to distinguish different wind instruments, e.g., in Schubert's 8th symphony.

    Were you able to use a universal version?  I am planning on getting the universal to maintain some resale value just in case it would not suit me.
