Noble Audio - the Wizard returns!

    Just curious, so what is your go-to IEM for daily listening? Is it Katana or Encore?

    Between the encore/Katana

    For EDC use, I go with the Katana

    Small
    Light weight

    But the Sage is a great EDC as well considering price and performance.

    Talking about Sage, here are mine with the Effect Audio Ares II cable :D

    So how does that cable compare to the stock cable?
     
  5. Oscar-HiFi
    Lots don't believe in cable changes but personally I think it highlights the strengths of the Sage, keeping the full yet well controlled lows, clean midrange and well extended highs. They retain excellent detail but the Ares II brings the sound abit more upfront, slightly tighter and more refined.

    Avenged Sevenfold just came on and these are fun to rock out with :)

    May I ask what eartips do you use over the stock ones?
     
  7. Oscar-HiFi
    I was using RHA tips, but have gone back to the blue cored stock tips. My ears are really awkward, my right side like to push most IEM's out.

    Thanks, I see :) I too use the stock tips with the blue core the most. Just curios what else I can toy with. Will probably try some eartips options once the new cable arrives and is tested.

    I've gone mad for Encore paired up to Effect Audio's Thor II. Makes these IEMs liquid magic.

    I'm exactly the same! Somehow the ear canal of my right ear goes upwards too soon and I cannot get seal. No such problem on the left.

    Ergonomics aside, the pairing of Sage and the Lavricables pure silver cable is incredible. I got completely lost in this track, the soundstage and clarity is astonishing for the price.

    If anyone wants to ease their minds I strongly recommend to give a shot to Wes Burden. Sounds awesome on both Katana and Sage. Great instrument separtion, detail and soundstage. Soothing smooth jazz, I like more than Kenny G.

    Zeos Pantera "reviews" a few IEMs including "The Noble Wizards" - . It is pretty hilarious - people try to explain him that this is a Noble Sage Wizard Edition (or perhaps a Savant?) and not "The Wizards". At the end of the review he's still hasn't figured out if the cable is detachable, etc. :)

    He's a bit of a joke to me, don't understand why people like his reviews. Not informative and he hypes up flavour of the month kit he's paid to like...
