Ok, ok, so the aesthetics of Noble iem's is unparalleled. They are all truly a sight to behold, and I've been enjoying all this conversation about materials, designs, etc. But I've just been listening to my K10's for the last 3 hours and I have to say that I wouldn't care if they only came in solid black or white; the true beauty is in the listening. These are the very first phones that I can honestly say caused me to turn off my critical ear and just take in the music. I think there was always a tiny part of me, that when I listened to music, would critique the sound of the cymbals, or the bass guitar, or the violin, or wonder if the Les Paul sounded like I remembered live. The artist's performance now takes center stage and I'm enjoying music the way I did when I was 10 years old listening to my parents console stereo record player! And it's a wonderful thing. Don't care how many drivers or what material they're made of, I'm just amazed at the way the music captures my attention again. And yes, having said all that, I still really enjoy just looking at them sitting in their case!
