Separate names with a comma.
I don't suppose any of them are 2.5mm TRRS? I am assuming not if they were for the BTS.
I don't suppose there is a custom option for the Savant 2?
Do u mean a CIEM?
No we dont at this time.
The issue is,
The price point as a uiem isnt exactly cheap
Adding the labor component to make it into a ciem would probably price it too high making it undesirable for the market
Aren't your thoughts on the debate already expressed in the product descriptions of the cables for sale on Noble's website though John? There are specific references to the sound that can be expected from the 'Crystal Lily', 'Aureole' and 'Holy Sheep' cables.
Ah that is a shame, thanks for checking though.
Not really, but good call.
Those thoughts, I do believe, are provided by the manufacturer/designer/founder of Wagnus Cables.
I'd be very surprised to see any direct quote from me in regards to Wagnus cables.
We do get questions from time to time about Wagnus cables and those questions are ussually referred to Wagnus.
And I honestly don't want to clutter this thread up with debating the efficacy of cable swaping.
We are getting more involved in cables, partly to allow those that want a higher grade of cable a chance get a cable that we have better control over pin sizes.
In theory this can help to decrease socket replacements, better serve our customers, and broaden our revenue stream.
I think most people looking at the site would take any comments about the products on it to be a tacit endorsement by Noble tbh.
Not trolling btw, just saying. I spent $200 on a cable (before Noble offered a selection) & feel it offered a worthwhile improvement to my Encore ciems.
I also agree with your previous comments about what's of value to an individual, and with a previous poster's comments about what qualifies as 'expensive' (that it's relative to income).
I haven't even reviewed the website in regards to the Wagnus cable. I'm up to my eyeballs in other Noble related issues.
It may very well be the case that the web site looks like I do nothing but offer raving endorsements for Wagnus cables. The length of my endorsement is really this.
The pins that I tried fit Noble sockets well. The founder of Wagnus is of a kindred spirit, owning a small company, trying to accomplish big things, with less than a handful of people and limited resources.
He is also passionate about what he does...
Other than that, I cant really comment on every one of his products, other than they were more than likely built with a lot TLC.
Thanks for the reply. I have a friend who is looking for a CIEM around £500 or £600. I guess the Trident is the Noble model at that price point. I have read very little about that model.
I wouldn’t personally recommend a custom at that price point
The mark up you pay for the labor required to make a custom IEM only really makes sense if you approach the TOTLs or TOTL-equivalents
There’s a few companies that makes pretty decent stuff at that price point but I’d still recommend universals
Some people need customs for a proper seal no matter the price point.
That is an interesting question. What IEM’s do you think you would recommend at that price point? Just curious. Tks.
Noble Savant II is probably the best all rounder at that price point
My other favourite around there is the EE EVR but that’s extremely vocal focused
Recomendations would depend on the music genre and environment for intended use.
Etymotic Research has some good products in the 250 - 400 area and they tend to fit a lot of ears.
But ofcourse mmv
