Noble Audio - the Wizard returns!

    Supposedly Sony will release some intermediate sizes too, in January, February. So we will see some XL and ML (medium large) and there is talk on the forums about certain people getting a good fit as either large is too big or large is not big enough. Also new, a range of intermediate sizes down the line.

    But large fits fine (for me personally) and because they don’t give any, large can almost feel larger than large in my personal experience. They get the Encore out from touching the side of my ear, and keep it locked down in place, forever it seems. Air-tight too!

    I have no issue recommending them wholeheartedly; though as we know tip use is very personal.

    There is a photo here which shows the texture of the tips. I had to post the link as the photo can’t be posted. But note the wall thickness and texture, that is the clue you have Triple Comport Tips, nothing out there like them. Cheers!

    Sorry if I missed this in the thread, but are these review samples? I've been trying to hibernate until March for mine.

    All I know is John's brother Jim had 3 sets, one was being sent to me. I don't consider myself a reviewer per-say.

    Sounds like I need to send John and Jim a few bottles of wine! :)

    No sympathy lol! :deadhorse::beerchug:

    I asked John yesterday almost immediately after seeing Watagumps post but unfortunately I think the other 2 have been allocated for review/advertising. Can't really blame them as that is the key to boosting sales early on. I am hoping that some trickle on early to the active people in this thread though :fingers_crossed::wink::kissing_heart:

    This is the first time I’ve ever had a SN#1 IEM :p

    I already ordered the ones you linked plus I had that 10% ebay coupon yesterday which helped

    I feel very lucky that I get the chance to receive units. I always tell John I don't expect anything from them. In the end I am glad I do get them, it helps me help others decide, it helps Noble and I also get the joy out of using the products, sounds like a win win. I wish I had the skills that great reviewers have with expressing what I hear in more technical terms. In the end, I just say what I hear, I wont lie about a product ever, it also helps if and when I ever work a show for Noble again to be able to help people that show up for listening.

    Oh man, this is cruel, the Khans are only 9 miles away. Maybe if I drive over they will give them to me. :smile:

    Hey :) What are the UK options krismusic? I'm on the hunt for some better tips for my Encore's.

    I meant that it might be possible to get custom tips made. Gisele at Aid2Hearing is Nobles recommended Audiologist and is extremely helpful. ACS also do custom tips for third party IEM's and may be able to help. Snuggs make tips with a 3D scanner and printer. I didn't have much luck with those but did not persevere to be fair.
    One of those options might come good... HTH.

    Personally if Gisele can do custom tips I would go through her as if you have any fit problems she will get you sorted! And from personal experience her molds fitted perfectly first time.

    Yes. That was my experience also. Gisele is the best. :) To be fair the other two companies were very keen to get a good result.
    With Gisele I had one minor refit and was good to go.
