    Impressions? :L3000:

    I would love to demo these. From the photo they look much more ergonomic than the Encore universal. Could we get dimensions on these @FullCircle ?

    A price on these would be good as well :p

    Review coming soon, but the Khan is the real deal.

    I always liked noble’s flagships, they may not be the most Technica but tonally they always were excellent to my ears.

    With the Khan though, they’ve pulled to the top of the game. I have not been blown away for a Long time like this. The last time this happened was with the tia fourte.

    For any of you noble fans out there still sitting on the fence, I think it’s time to go for it.

    tell me man.... how much for a all ninja black Khans? :))

    The Khan comes standard in black housing, and a black/silver composite mokume gane faceplate. (Sorry at this point in time there are no other aesthetic options)

    How does the Kahn compare sonicly to the Encores?
     
  7. WCDchee
    It’s a big step up in every way.

    John mentioned K-10s a few pages back.......so its more like an improved Encore than K-10?

    Actually, I don’t think it’s like any of the others.

    Tonally, this is not a bass heavy IEM. It’s very evenly tuned, very tonally accurate. Stage is immense, among the best, imaging precise. Bass is not boosted but hits extremely hard and Low, sub presence is outstanding. Resolution is absolutely top notch too.

    Anyone that knows what IEMs I come from will know that I don’t easily make such comments.

    That sounds amazing! What is the comfort/size like compared to the aluminium universals? I have a feeling I might not like the price lol!

    I’ll leave it to the guys at noble to reveal the prices, but I think it is well worth the price difference from the encore.

    Not too bad then, is there an official announcement I have missed somewhere?

    Jim@Noble sent out a black friday e-mail today announcing their discounts and also the Kahn pricing. Delivery of this limited pre-launch for the Kahns is expected in March 2019.

    Thanks, we struggled with that price as we never really dipped our toes above 2k for a universal.

    But what we wanted to bring to the party, required a significant investment on our part. 2018 has been the hardest year of my life, I figured the name Ghengis Khan was appropriate.

    Historically, he was born into adversity, all things considered, he should have withered away and become nothing more than dust on the annals of time. Instead he rose up and conquered Kings. I feel the Khan is superior to the Kaiser 10, and the Kaiser Encore, both products carrying a kingly name. The Khan in my opinion, is the King of Kings in the Noble line up.
