Separate names with a comma.
That's in USD. I wrote S$3300, which means Singaporean dollars.
Keep an eye out for it in the next week or so
Kinda ironic seeing the part about percussion, ever time I play Bang Bang by Jesse J, there is a major presence of a punching type of drum, possibly a snare drum. Its way outside of my right ear, its really amazing to hear the detail of that. I notice other tracks also demonstrating a sound outside of the right ear, so it doesn't just happen for drums, I guess its just showing a wide sound stage, I really enjoy that. I also agree about the use of tizz, good word to describe what I also hear.
What I love about how the Khan presents drums is how hard they punch with authority and speed. Usually, strong impact is either associated with low definition or sluggishness; perhaps some combination of both. The Khan manages to avoid both to my ears - presenting a stable, open stage, then dropping visceral drum hits out of nowhere. Of course, the size of the stage plays a role as well, so you're immersed in the soundscape. But, that level of dynamism is where it absolutely caught my attention.
A sound engineer in Japan and Korea heard the Khan, both stated they wanted the Khan ASAP.
Like always YMMV and sound is subjective.
I recently had a Katana lover in Bangkok give the Khan a listening session. To sum up his remarks .... "Normally I dont care much about bass response..... but the Khan's bass is addictive."
My take on the Khan, it isnt the amount of bass, but just how the bass is presented.... nice helpings of bass, without going into the "mud zone."
It is a fun ride, and it is my current favorite in the portfolio.
Khan is the best Noble has made to date.
Nice, do you know if Stereo will continue to demo the Khan for the foreseeable future? Can't go this weekend, need to find some time to go and break in to steal it listen to it.
I dont know their plans, but I predict they will as they did place a modest size order of Khans
Agreed. I personally can't get past the lower-mids and the tizz if I were to use it as a mixing/mastering piece, but it's an exhilarating listen nonetheless. The bass is pretty outstanding indeed.
I don't see why not. But, you do have to request it. They aren't displaying it front-and-centre yet at the moment. Oh, and you must refer to it as the Genghis or Genghis Khan. Simply say Khan and watch as their employees stare at you as if you're speaking gibberish.
Over time, I think "Khan" will be the adopted name, just as the K10 became synonymous with Kieser 10
I have another challenge John. Make just ONE set of Khan's with a blue and white mooshoo gai pan face plate and a blue and white cable to match my player. Serial number Wata001. Once I have them, you can have my inferior #002 back.
Did a quick demo with some of my favorite songs. The Khan was really good and does well bringing out the details. The only con I have was the way vocal high sound harsh when it went pass a certain pitch. I will have to demo it again with more tracks to confirm.
Well, this is very bad impressions for a TOTL iem.
2nd person did an impression.
Wondering if I jumped on board too fast for new iem from Noble?
