Noble Audio - the Wizard returns!

    An 8 braid cable would have 300lb strength at the center braid. While strong enough to hold most people, it would hurt the hands as the cable/rope would be very thin.

    Why does an IEM cable need a high pulling strength?

    and I've heard that Chuck Norris doesn't need ropes while climbing...

    He doesn’t climb on ropes, the world glides down on him.

    I don't see how it can hurt being strong, but I guess it can show Noble does care about every aspect of making a good product. Plenty of people have accused Noble of making just a cheap cable for cost reasons.

    More than likely it is due to the influence that audiology/hearing aid industry had on ciems. While it is the case ue was the pioneer of the industry, westone was the company tasked to build ciems for ue. Westone is historically a hearing aid industry support/supply company.

    The cable used on "body worn" hearing aids (mostly used by children 20 years ago) was a tensile spc braided cable. The reason for this is the durability of this type of cable is the gold standard. This type of cable is commonly found in the medical industry (ekg machines).

    Any how the cables, 2 pin sockets, balanced armature drivers, piezoelectric speakers and the building processes were all adopted from the hearing aid industry.

    I was hoping you guys can point me in the right direction, I sent in an email to the Noble website about a slight adjustment to the fit of my iems since they dont fit well anymore, and havent gotten a reply and its been a few weeks. Is there anyone i can PM on this forum for help? I didnt want to just PM people randomly and bother them. Thanks in advance!

    Ibasso IT04 universal iem looks like almost a custom.
    Fit a lot better than my Encore.
    Encore needs to keep adjusting every 30 min or an hour.
    Once IT04 plugged in then rarely needs adjusting.
    I think iBasso company is putting more effort into it. Noble needs to do more than that.

    Not really an apples to apples comparison

    Internal required dimensions are not the same. Good to know ibaso fits your physical needs but that does not mean Noble products do match others as well

    Ha ha! Very clever reply. That Banksy stunt was brilliant. :)

    I reckon you could start a fight on your own in a lift! :wink:

    I wont lie, if something was done or even could be done to have a better fit with the Noble universal's, I would love it. I wonder why I don't have the same luck with them as I do with the Bell. Maybe I am able to push the Bell in further, so maybe a longer nozzle on the universals would work for me. I am only guessing, I don't know what would work. I love customs for other reasons, fit, looks, uniqueness, never dealing with tips again, that's about it.

    Reports said that piece could be worth much more, so I would be happy with it even after it did what it did. IMHO, that makes it even more special.
     
  14. krismusic Contributor
    Yes. It would actually have been better if he had cross shredded the whole thing.

    I think its perfect just the way it is.
