Noble Audio - the Wizard returns!

    Are you able to compare what you heard to the 64 Audio TIA Fourte? I would be interested in this comparison from bass to mids to treble, timbre and soundstage. Also, how comfortable was it in your ears? A bit concerned over the size. Tks.

    The 20% discount is also being applied to the Kahn from the email.

    Some specs:
    - Tri-level hybrid universal IEM: three different driver technologies
    - A 10mm dynamic driver for bass and sub-bass, 4 X balanced armature drivers for mid and hi, and a 10mm ceramic piezoelectric super-tweeter.

    I'm really interested in a Sony IER-Z1R vs Campfire Solaris vs Noble Genghis Khan review right now!

    I knew it was only a matter of time before this came up.

    In terms of comfort, very comfortable, relatively deep insertion despite the wide bore.

    Vs the fourte, well, they’re different. The fourte is meatier, richer, the Khan is leaner and quicker, snappier. The Khan has more precise imaging, and a huge stage, the fourte imaging is a little less pinpoint though still very precise, though the sense of expansion of the space remains very much unbeatable. Both are highly resolving and transparent.

    I was comparing my Savants to my EE ESRs and my recently acquired BGVP DM6s with the idea of keeping two. I hadn't been listening to the Savants in awhile since I got the DM6s recently and have been getting acquainted with them but I rediscovered why I love the Savants so much.
    They have a sense of imaging, or is it presentation, unlike any iem I have listened to before and I finally think I figured it out.. In the opening piece of Olafur Arnalds' "Island Songs", there is a poet, Einar Georg Einarsson, reciting one of his poems in Icelandic. In both the ESR and the DM6, the voice is clear and present and quite lifelike but in the Savant, there is the sense of distance that the poet is sitting at. It is a natural distance as if you were standing in the room with him rather than being at the position of the microphone. The other two give more of a sense of watching the poet on TV... though very clear, less like being present in the actual space... It's a unusual feature of the "soundstaging" that is very special to the Savant..

    But... the microphonics of the Savants' cable, though usually fine with the neck slider, is aggravated by earmuffs as the pads rub on this particular cable and create distracting microphonics while moving about, so I'm hoping someone could give me a recommendation on a relatively inexpensive replacement that won't wreck that special sound they have. I tried the Effect Audio cable that came with the ESRs but I prefer the sound of the original. For just listening it's fine but I move around a lot at work and find the stock cable not to work so well in that environment.

    Thanks.

    Dont use that cable!!!
    Tried it, it made my savant sounds so harsh.

    I got myself a DIY 8braided cable from a friend, he used silver plated copper cable. (Cost me about $35)

    Although it add a bit on the bass, and pulled the vocal away from you just a little bit makinng the vocal and the musics stand on the same distance, and smooth out the treble but give a wider soundstage and more details.

    *forgot to wrote this when i replied, the cable im currently using doesnt make microphonic noise

    I’m sorry john, savant and that cable really sounds horrible

    Yep, opinions will vary. Every Noble IEM sold in Japan comes standard with the ultra thin cable attached to it. (Upon the distributors request)

    Yup, it’s also maybe because my ear doesnt handle treble well.

    I'm not treble shy as I've got some natural age related "roll off" up there.

    On a practical note, is there anywhere in Canada to get one? I don't really fancy paying $35 shipping for an $80 cable.

    Keeping my fingers crossed for the custom option down the road, universals reeeeeally don't play nice with my ears.

    I'm just hoping they'll be at CanJam NYC 2019, I'm patient, I'll wait.

    Do you have a product waiting to ship to you now? If so we can add it to your order and it can ship with your order....

    Or purchase a Kahn and we will place it in the box as well?
