Noble Audio - the Wizard returns!

    I definitely wouldn't say so. The Khan is an excellent entry into the TOTL space, especially in terms of stage construction, detail and physicality as I and others have mentioned. It does have a couple cons against it in discerning tonal shifts, lower-midrange power and a hint of tizziness. But, when you look at the bigger picture - i.e. the competition at hand and where the Khan is positioned relative to them - the Khan definitely offers enough to distinguish itself against them. I wouldn't consider IEMs like the U18t, Legend X or VE8 any more of a better buy than the Khan, nor vice versa. I guess what I'm saying is, these impressions are only very bad if compared against the Everest of praise usually bestowed upon new flagships nowadays actually attributed to instant gratification and - for lack of a better word - hype. To my ears, the Khan can definitely stand head-and-shoulders with the rest. It ain't perfect to me, but nothing is either.
     
    fiascogarcia, SLC1966 and Rowethren like this.

    And look on the plus side if you don't like them when they arrive you can probably sell them for not much of a loss as they aren't producing huge quantities of them...

    I get the impression that the Encore is the true successor to the K10. The Khan is another project entirely. I've not heard the Khan mind. I really want to at the earliest opportunity.

    I hope more people hear it soon. It’s precision, transparency, and physicality of image without resorting to thickness is outstanding and almost second to none. Super airy too for those classical lovers.

    I would love to Watta. Meeting you would be a bonus. Unfortunately, or perhaps fortunately, I am in the UK.

    I know you are in the UK, drive over anyhow. Stop and pick John up also.

    John will I'm afraid have to pay his way. A set of Khan's will do nicely. :)

    You're so evil.

    In the best kind of way!
