I'm all for giving credit where it's due rather than hype, so here goes: Noble's prices have always seemed high, and I never really liked the sound even after going through a lot of hoops to demo them out. So when the Khan was announced (with a scorching price tag), I filed it under the "way over hyped and priced" section like the Jomo Trinity. Zeus and Phantom were already pretty hefty themselves. So when headfoneshop announced they were a dealer and getting demos in, I figured why not, having a bit of disillusionment with the signature of both Zeus and Phantom. This time I was armed with an even more curated playlist aimed at putting the Khan through its paces to see if it had what I felt was missing. *Cue wide open eyes, multiple jaw drops, raised eyebrows, holy - - - this is amazing in canto, may have vomited some rainbows, and saw a unicorn or 2* Impressed was an understatement. I had never considered going out of BA only territory, only to be snagged by tri level hybrid. Figured maybe in a couple of months having sold my Zeus to finance my next pair of IEMs. Decide it wasnt worth the wait and listed my Phantom. Now I have Khan. TL: DR well done to Noble on the Khan, it was good enough me for me to sell 2 TOTLs I never thought I'd sell and not a complaint about the price either.
