So I have been listening to the Massdrop Noble X's over the last week and they are tremendous, even more so for the price I paid used. This sound signature is very much what I am after. What IEM in the Noble line would be the logical step up? I appreciate your comments and recommendations.
Kinda depends on the sound signature you are looking for.
For example, you like the Noble x but wish it had more xxx xxx?
Once we know that, may be able to guide you a bit better
Perhaps a bit more resolution, slightly extended highs and deeper bass (but not overpowering). The soundstage is really good, but I always like more. I hope that helps.
Just posted my review of the very lovely Katana. Always loved the look and sound of these during audio shows but have never had a chance to really sit down with one of Noble's flagships in Australia. Luckily, but the Katana definitely delivers on treble extension, resolution and overall control. I hope you guys enjoy the review! Now on EverydayListening, THL and here on Head-Fi.
Sage better highs, lows about the same
Savanna lacking in lows, better highs, wider sound stage (great for acoustics/female vocals)
Dulce bass - coin toss as it is a genre type product
Django - coin toss as well
K10 - if u can find one, a bit warm nice highs excells with all genre
Encore, a bit more neutral than thr k10, excells with all genre
Katana, a bit more neutral than the encore, excells in all genre, and delivers more of a hi - fi soumd quality
Obviously they all have their trade offs
If u get a chance to listen to them, that would be ideal
Thanks, that helps a lot. I don’t know where I can listen, unless a tour starts, I find someone near Dayton or I do the buy used/resell thing. First test should be the Sage I think.
@ryanjsoo: I’ll gladly have a read of that, even if it’s at the risk of putting me back on the Encore / Katana fence.
From what I’ve read elsewhere I’m just about sold on the Encores.
Thank you, I appreciate the straightforward response.
Thank you, if your heart is set on Encore don't let me sway you!
I’ll be auditioning the Katanas within the next few days. My curiosity will endup getting the better of me haha.
Why buy just 1 when you can have 2 for twice the price?
@FullCircle, can you tell us a bit more about the new gold + silver cable? Looks nice.
It is comprised 8 cores, 4 being occ spc, and 4 being 4n gpc
I don't make any sonic claims
thinking of getting the sage. what cable pairs well with it? i'm choosing between ARES or EROS II
