That looks nice. well done John. Will it be based on the current Pro or new electronics?

When will it be available for purchase?

There are some similarities with the falcon pro:

Qualcomm 3040 chip 5.2

That said

The Focus pro has a 8mm dynamic driver where as the falcon pro has a 6mm dynamic driver.


Also,
As mentioned in this thread before, the Falcon Pro charger has a slow trickle down characteristic.

The Fokus pro charger does not trickle down.

As for when can orders be placed. I imagine now, if one wanted. Most of our distributors have placed orders.

The Focus is currently in production.

Do the fokus pro have IPX rating similar to Falcon Pro?

Was just about to purchase Falcon pro for commuting/running. Extremely happy to hear the release of fokus pro!

From what I understand
There was no ipx rating given to the fokus pro because it has a 3d printed housing.

Physically the face plate is sealed to the housing just as any ciem is.


But there is a ventilation vent on the shell/housing which can be seen in the video, so that could be problematic for moisture.

The other area of moisture entry would be the actual sound bore.... but there is little that can be done about that.


The fokus objective isn't really a "sport" type tws, it is more about the music.

I'm glad that you have found a distributor in Singapore (Jaben). Honestly I'm abit hesitant having had bad experiences with them before. But I can't say no to Noble, so screw it.

I'll I can say is Wilson has been straight with us. If you ever need some individualized product etc etc let him know. He knows we are willing to accommodate (if we can).

Sound wise how does it compare to the falcon pro?
I'm glad you guys were able to fix the trickle down battery drain though
i was even wondering if we were gonna get a falcon pro 2 with the fixes and possibly anc.
but if we're getting a full on listening made tws iem hmm but the no ipx rating will make me have to think about this.
Im guessing it'll be out next month in japan so i'll have to check it out it once its announced in tokyo.

I actually had you in mind when this project was on the drawing board.

Just wanted to point this out from noble's website;
"Note that the Noble FoKus Pro is a premium headphone. It will handle the occasional sweaty workout, but it is not recommended that the FoKus Pro be submerged in water or worn in the shower or rain."
The "it will handle occasional sweaty workout" part has almost convinced me to pull the trigger!
Amazing looking earphones by the way...
