    Which part was causing the issue? Driver/2-pin connector/housing? Probably helpful for current owners to know.

    I still don't see the Khan in your sig, tisk, tisk. You were even bribed with pizza.

    Noble is just not happy with the durability of the sockets so they are making changes, so if anyone has issues they can just contact Noble and they will take care of it.

    If they move to a different socket will we be able to send our Khan in to have it upgraded as well?

    Crystal clear is how I'd describe the Khan, especially when you compare it against its predecessors, the K10 and the Encore. I'd like a little more body and warmth on the Khan, but that's not something that cannot be fixed with a warmer amp, such as a CV5 or a CDM. I'm definitely looking forward to getting my own set of Khans.

    Man, wish I'd known that before yesterday... :scream:

    Not sure about that, but if it doesn't have issues, no need to send it in, its possible people may already be getting ones that don't have any issues.

    Fingers crossed I don't want to send mine back. They sound too good:). I might go thru withdrawl :beyersmile:.

    Oh yeah check it out I fixed the sig. The pizza worked it was not a lie like the cake.

    We have not had an issue at the 2 shows swapping cables for people who want to try either a lightning cable, balanced etc. My Khan has been gone since CanJam NY, its being made shiny, so I have to suffer with my customs K10's.

    You perceived more detail than the A18t?

    I A/Bed them and the answer is yes (U18t, not the custom). I think the Khan is less shy about throwing everything in your face. It's aggressive. It's fast. Decay might be unnatural for some, the timbre might lean bright (I've heard people make those comments before about the Khan). But the raw technical ability of the Khan is hard to deny.

    Anyone compare the Khan to the Legend X?

    I tried the Legend and the Phantom at Axpona, I preferred the Phantom. The Legend has too much mid bass for my taste. More than 1 person at the show said the same thing. I did tell the guys at the booth the Legend was the best I have heard from them, but this was before hearing the Phantom, as always opinions vary. Too be honest, up until the show I had only heard the Zeus, the first one.

    They’re... very different. Some people here call them polar opposites, and while I disagree, I can see where they’re coming from.

    Khan has a U-shaped signature, with the feeing that everything from the midbass to the upper mids is scooped out. It feels highly detailed because of this tuning choice, though vocals are really thin. Midbass is lacking as well, so it lacks some impact. Overall a detailed IEM and pretty comfortable fit-wise, with the upper frequencies being its main strength.

    Legend X is a V-shaped IEM with recessed mids, and the “scooped out” feeling is over a much narrower frequency range. Whereas the Khan’s midbass is pretty lackluster, the Legend X has it in spades. Also a very detailed IEM, slightly less comfortable because it’s so big, with the lower frequencies being it’s selling point (though the overflowing midbass can be a bit polarizing).

    IMO both are very good IEMs, both are more specialists than all-rounders, and both are somewhat overpriced. Pretty decent chance I end up getting one of them though.

    I agree 100%. I went without the intention to buy anything and just wanting to try different gear. I found the legend x to be too thick in the mid bass and really v shaped in response. I have the Solaris which has good mid bass but is more controlled to me. I did like the phantom more than the legend x but still found it a bit warm it was something like my roxannes in some ways.
    I really found the Khan to have really good low bass and it rolled off just a bit until the mids more of a u shaped signature than a v. The Khan has more air in the top end than the legend x, phantom, or Solaris. All of that combined lends to a bigger sound stage to me. These are all reasons that I walked out of axpona with a set of Khans. They are really comfortable too..
