I just want your autograph printed on a Nick Cage meme with Head-Fiers lurking in the background.

Hi,
I pre-ordered the noble falcon
I had no trust in cordless earphones before, but I think I can trust noble, and that's why I bought it.
I can't find much information about the sound details about the falcon
I want to ask you about the sub bass extension of the falcon,
and the overall sound signature / description of falcon.
I have not had the chance to hear other noble iem's yet, so I won't be able to make sense of a "baby" khan or something like that.
Thank you!

HI,

That comparison was for the Tux 5. Not the Falcon.

@FullCircle can comment on the signature when he's able.

It's more along the lines of the k10 /Savant II.

Oh, ok my bad
On the preorder site, it says it will be shipped mid~late november.
Any chance I could get a specific date, or when I could get a specific date of shipment?

Three things:
  • Personally, I dig the sig
  • The pricepoint on the Falcon is seems insane with the form factor, battery life and company behind it
  • Not that I'd be trying to drop the Falcons in tubs of water, but would they hold up to sweat and getting caught running in the rain (not expecting IP67 etc...)
@thkim021 Check with Audio46, they probably know more about the shipping specifics :)

Insanely low, sorry... along with:
  • Twice the battery life of my current solution
  • Actual real water resistance rating compared to none
  • Likely much better sound quality
  • Better (imo) form factor
Most of the true wireless (I've seen) with that kind of battery life stick out quite a bit or have weird shapes to compensate. I know it's not a popular choice, but I've relegated myself to ill fitting aiprods with sub par battery and no seal whatsoever for my wireless needs, so this is awesome news! Also IPX7 is the icing on the cake! Thanks for the info sir!

The shape of the Falcon does look similar to the Creative Outlier Air. I hope that the Falcon have better (softer) buttons and eartips tbecause those are my 2 main issues with the Creatives. Type C on the Falcon is really appreciated though. Will look forward to demo it.

I do not know the ear tip suplier Creative used, but we are using an independent suplier from the assembly team. The point is, I think our ear tips will be different, as we outsourced those.

I cant commemt in regards to buttons

I wouldn't say low, but I would say fair.

Yeah, probably a little bit of hyperbole on my part with the "insanely", but I still feel it's low relative to the prices from the big names for similar offerings (i.e. Apple, Bose, B&O, Beats, Jaybird, Sennheiser, etc...) I know Anker has a bunch out there recently at a low price point as well along with some others to be fair...
