Brannan, will this be available in Japan (E-Earphone)? I'll be heading back to Tokyo on Thursday. I'll probably pick this up when I'm there (if it's in stock).

Thanks!

I'm not sure if they will be in stock at that time. It is a safe bet that our dealer I'm Singapore will have them.

Hi Timothy, most dealers will not have inventory until early December, but if you go by e-earphone during your visit please express your interest in the Velvet while you are there.

Yeah the deal was really good that I almost regret purchasing the Massdrop K10U lol

But K10U is a legend and you’ve gotta have it don’t you :ghost:

I'm hearing from Gisele (UK dealer) that my rush-order, Wizard-designed Kaiser Encores are 'in production'. This is good, because I can't wait to get my hands on them. No idea how far through production, but given that it was a rush order, and we're nearing ten business days from when my impressions should have arrived Noble's end, I'm hoping that they might be almost done.

Asked for dark metallic greens with a touch of neon orange. Hoping they're not going to end up looking like a car crash... getting increasingly nervous that I've accidentally ordered the most hideous CIEMs ever. Not heard anything from Noble themselves; I'm hoping that if what I requested is just sodding awful, they'd at least have dropped me a line to say "are you sure about this?"

She is great really helps all they way through the process. Also I wouldn't worry about the the design the "Wizard" doesn't do ugly! :D

Universal Katana and Savants came in from the BF sale. Initial impressions are that the Savants to me are essentially much less bassy Dulce Bass with a more cramped airier sound space. The Katana is very much not like the Encore. Encore pushes all the details to you,Katana gives it to you. Encore is SO WIDE and Katana is SO DEEP.

Got the BF Katana universal today and tried my crazy idea and it works! I was pretty sure the Katanas would fit pretty flush in my ears given how small they are and sure enough, I can slip my Sony MDR-1000X noise cancelling headphones on my ears with the Katanas in place! Can't wait to try this on my next flight. I bet I am getting about 40+ dB of noise isolation!

Oh and the Katanas sound great! Tonality reminds me of my Utopias. Will post back more details with more listening.

Get a splitter and play back on both the MDR1000 & Katana

Hello everybody!

Long time, no post.

I have a pair of Tzar 350's that I want to part with and I thought that, being Wizard's creation, this would be the best place to ask if anyone is interested. Mint condition, with Toxic Cables Scorpion copper cable. I will also put them up for sale here on head-fi and ebay but I wanted to give a head's up to my fellow Wizard fans. Thanks.
