Noble Audio - the Wizard returns!

  1. Stranger Than Fiction
    @John0405: For a day or two I found myself a wee bit overwhelmed with... everything. It wasn't a bad thing, rather the mind just tuning into everything, as it were. A few days hence and everything seems to have fallen into place again. I'm a physical burn-in skeptic - espeically where balanced armatures are cocnerned - but I'm a big beleiver in psychological burn-in. Warmth, for lack of a better word, seems to have increased as well.

    With dating (auditioning) and marriage (purchase-through-to-getting properly acquainted) almost done it's time for the honeymoon, baby!!

    You might find your experiences mirroring mine, especially if you have a good seal.

    It's not that I feel underwhelmed...It's just that sometimes I feel the sound is too thin, too distant. I wouldn't know how to put it. How would you recognize a good from a bad seal, guys ?

    ^ No bass, airy, tinny sort of presentation. Gently push the tips in a little further and see what happens.

    They're custom. I don't think having a bad seal then. so it's probably my source which is thin and airy. (ak100 II)

    You can certainly still get not a proper seal from CIEM and may need a refit if necessary.
     
  6. John0405
    I'm gonna give it another chance for a couple of days. If anyone would care to advise me on a warm and punchy source to complement the encores, that would be swell :)

    Taiwan is a second home to me. I lived in Taiwan for around 3 years. I speak Mandarin fairly well, but I can't read Chinese to save my life.

    Xing Nyan kwaile!

    It would be good if you could get to listen to a Mojo. Try and find somewhere that will give you a month's trial and just listen as much as you can.

    The bad thing is, I don't have any source that is warm besides my HTC One 10. Perhaps @PinkyPowers should help this poor fellow out?

    I have to say the Mojo was the only thing that added anything of substance to without taking anything away from my Shure SE846s based on the brief auditions I've done with it. Certainly if it were more portable I'd be looking at getting one.

    @John0405 you could also look at the oppo HA2-SE. WITHOUT bass boost it just boost the clarity and presentation. With the bass boost, it thumps but I feel like it shrinks the soundstage due to the warmth it suddenly gains. Portable as heck too

    The new Opus#1S is rather warm, and "punchy". :D
