    That’s the funny part, how high-end IEMs can play with leaving stuff out, only for the sake of charming personality, yet still be technically proficient and accurate? It’s almost like how different stereos in peoples houses can sound enchanting yet different. It’s all there and they can play all music genres, yet only do it in their own magic way.

    The Katana does have a lot of excellent things going on but nothing overwhelming during long sessions. What I think is often overlooked is the specialness of its very slight sub bass bump. Very slight but special.

    I was going to chop in my K10's for a newer model but I am enjoying them all over again.
    Two things. Straight out of the iPhone with the standard cable does me just fine.
    It occurred to me that I have had these for four years now. So they have cost me £250 a year to own. My phone costs me £500 a year...

    I got my K10s in June and they're my first taste of Noble customs. No regrets on the price. I use them every day, for a few hours a day, so it's very worth it it to me especially since I commute a lot.

    I generally run them through a ES100, or my phone. When I run them through a Dragongfly Red or Nano Black Label, the K10s scale wonderfully bringing them to a whole new level of sound.

    Who's going to be at RMAF? I will be there Saturday and Sunday at the Noble booth. Looking forward to seeing you there!

    I've happily found what appears to be my temporary end game, thanks to the wonderful synergy between all 3. Noble has simply outdone itself this time with the Khans.

    Took me a while though, was stuck between this and the LGPT for a few weeks. LGPT, ruined the treble of the Khans with some songs though, made it too peaky, didn't clean em up well enough.

    can i ask please i have a couple of effect audio cables and they all seem to not go in deep into the khan socket and are so easy to get removed from the khan although they are 0.78mm pins, are there special 2 pins for the khan, or if i want to buy an aftermarket cable shall i give special instructions for the cable maker to fit the khan, it seems that when i compared the length of the stock 2 pins to the after market pins the stock pins are longer, so maybe cause khan uses recessed sockets special pins are needed

    I don't know what OEM Noble gets their stock cables from, but the pins on Plastics One's stock cables (used by Custom Art, Spiral Ear and a few others) generally are longer than other pins. Perhaps Noble are just using an OEM with the same type of long pins. But, every 2-pin IEM should work with both pin lengths as long as the sockets haven't been abused or anything like that. There aren't special pins for recessed sockets, but there are special plugs. Make sure the Effect Audio cable you're using has these plugs:

    That plug is the one you need for recessed sockets. If your cable doesn't have the black plastic part, then it's only for non-recessed sockets. If you already have the correct plug, make sure that black plastic part goes all the way into the recession of the socket, to the point where the black part is almost not visible anymore. That should ensure the most secure connection. But, if Noble's sockets are only half-recessed like Empire Ears' usually are, then don't force them in either. Have you tried cables from PWAudio? Their pins are usually a bit thicker.

    Here is how the stock cable looks on the newer deeper recessed sockets. Just showing how far the cable sticks out per-say.
