    Hi, John I also had a question about the brand new top of the line iem "KHAN" I was just wondering if the name "KHAN" came from well-known founder and first Great Khan of the Mongol Empire - Genghis Khan?
    According to the photo posted above, it certainly looks so. Isn't it? I was wondering if there was no risk associated with the use of such name?

    I think the idea is that the Khan destroys all competition. I was momentarily uneasy about the name but wouldn't take it too seriously.

    Plus, as I understand stand it "Kahn" is/was a title in much the same way as Caeser is/was.

    Not much of a mystery, as we have historically used descriptive terms of royalty/heritage/lineage etc.

    I also felt Ghengis Khan was fitting as i feel it reigns supreme over its predecessors.

    Technology wise, it is more complex, fit wise (subjectively) better. Rarity of build materials, far more rare than what has ever been offered as a "standard" build feature.

    Even the Khan cable is an upgrade from its predecessors.

    As far as the Noble line up, it is in my view, the Khan is, the king of kings.

    Really looking forward to hearing Khan. I hope it is the universal that fits me!

    I'm surprised the Gold X Silver cable wasn't standard, unless this new Kahn cable is better? I love my Gold X Silver, but you don't hear much talk about it.

    Its already $2399, adding another $300 might be asking a lot. People have the option of course, just buy the other cable for the Khan.

    At this level surely the micro twatting around with cables is unnecessary.

    Nope, a $2399 set needs a $2000 cable also.

    Sounds reasonable.

    Other said rule of thumb is cable max price is 1/4 of hp or iem cost.
    That's what I preordered another DHC as well for the Khan. Hopefully, two items come about the same month.
