You guys are just way too sharp. Bleh. Anyway, I've got a year to think of something better.

I don't believe that is correct.  They do allow it for the Ownership Transfer, but it wouldn't be economical for them to allow you to just send them in for a refit for yourself.

This is correct. One nice thing about the OTS is that it should help to improve the resale value of Noble customs for the first owner, because the second owner knows they can be reshelled properly by the original manufacturer. Something to consider.

Yeah not the same. Never mind their media buy budget is expansive. Also there is market awareness to an extent for smart phones and even smart watches. Take a look at even free advertising in newspapers. Custom IEMs don't have awareness in mass...the requisite before driving brand preference. I doubt Harvey or an of the custom brands have a couple hundred million to do a a small part of what apple does with consumer marketing. Anyway.... As an owner I would watch it.


This post was a compliment to Noble's focus and in defense of why they should NOT waste money on a video. In case I was not clear, I wanted to applaud Noble's focus.

For any of you that like blues, soul, jazz vibe....Check out Gregory Porter. I only veer into this musical lane when it is brilliant and his work stands out on the mighty K10

For those suckers for female vocals, Imogen heap is an incredible musician. I especially like her early works. Here is an icredible demonstration of her musical talent. She builds the entire song during the song. I don't know many folks that could pull this off. Check it out.

Oh and this among countless others for Imogen...here she is with Jeff Beck.

Not sure if this was asked already, but do you guys really work out with customs?  Some people mentioned the new Noble bluetooth dongle being a great solution for the gym.  Just wondering if I would wreck my (soon to be ordered) K10's if I worked out with them.

Honestly I find it harder to work out with Acrylic CIEMs. That being said I have done it, and its fine, but I now prefer my silicones for workouts. I've put in pre orders for the BTS so I'll be able to try that out too.
