Noble Audio - the Wizard returns!

    No winner for the Mega Millions lottery last night, its now at $1.6 billion. If I win I can finally afford a Noble t-shirt.

    Yeah, I matched one number on 10 tickets. Not good.

    1 number here out of 5 chances. The payout structure is absurd, 1 person in CA that had 5 out of 6 got in the $3 mill area.

    John, when is the Bloomberg article coming out? I want to see my K10's on the interwebz.

    So much more like the original encore? I heard “warm” and it made me think of the K10s.

    I was hoping Noble would come to CanJam at RMAF this year so I could hear them. I have the original Encore and I have found very few IEMs I enjoy more.

    Ah my bad. I haven't heard the brass Encore only the standard universal. I wouldn't think the brass would make any difference as BA's are self contained units and afaik, are not affected by the enclosure material. I was just expressing that I felt the Encores improved on the K10 in every way. I'm sure the brass edition do too. But I haven't heard them.

    Noble's site says this about the brass, " The brass casing is effective in removing unwanted vibration and bringing the clarity to the next level! " It does make me curious. :thinking:

    Hell for that money I’ll bet John would let you design your own T-Shirt.

    It would be very interesting to hear John's take on this. He seems pretty resistant to hogwash and certainly doesn't need it to promote his products. I can see that a lovely solid brass housing would increase pride of ownership but the sound? improvements were possible from housing material would that not be a feature of his designs, all Prestige would sound different?

    I am open to hearing an explanation also. As for a Prestige sounding different, I guess it would have to be a solid brass one based off what is being posted about the brass Encore, because Prestige just means machined out of a solid block of material.

    I have never complained about customer service, as I had a job picking up phones when I was a youngster. HOWEVER, the customer service at Noble is absolutely atrocious. I reached out to Brannan several weeks ago about an issue with one of the earbuds on my Noble iems. Unfortunately, I dont think the device was completely glued correctly which is causing one of the earbuds to be a little unstable, to the point where I think it will split open any day now. Brannan asked me to provide photos, which I did within a day, then asked a few additional times to provide clarification on what I meant in my email. I provided my explanation, tried to call and followed up at least 5 separate times. I then found another customer service email and am going through the same exact exercise. Why cant I simply send my iem in simply for them to look at it and fix whatever needs to be fixed? In all the years I've dealt with customer service at various companies, I have NEVER experienced such lack of professionalism in my life. I do not suggest anyone to buy Noble products unless they plan to keep them enclosed in a bomb shelter with padded flooring in case you drop them. Sheesh, what a terrible experience.

    Brannan is not even part of Noble any longer. As to whats going on now, I cant answer that, hope someone gets back to you and fixes any CS issues for everyone.

    But he was atrocious when he was still part of Noble. The main reason I turned away from this company, along with fake giveaways...
