  Hey guys.. If you were going to buy the K10.. Would you buy the universal or custom? I was about to buy the universal but maybe I should ask on here first...

Custom, you get better looks for the same price as the universal, unless you want the options that add to the price.

Buy the universal first for test drive, then if you really want the custom, return it and eat the restock fees and order.

One painful matter for custom is the wait time...
 
I am still waiting for mine 
; I believe 8 weeks window has already passed... not a complain here, just wanted to share my real thoughts
:
 
Part of me thinks, Noble Audio is busy, and, they are putting their best effort to make sure that the K10 and​ Wizard Design Theme I communicated, exceeds my expectations...

 
The other part just envies the look of the photos Noble Audio attaches/posts in this thread and Facebook page; and, relentlessly wondering how will the K10 sound with the Chord Hugo...   
 
Cheers

^^ There is a shop here in Canada that I can buy that are in stock... I think I have made up my mind and go with the universal.. The reason is 1. I Can have it in my hands in a few days. 2. Easier to sell? 3. I kinda like the plain look of the universal. I really hope I like them cause there is a no refund policy... Never thought I would fork out almost 2k (cad) for earphones.. I told my wife that these earphones are only $400 haha

Your cable upgrades will be $400 so there's some truth to that! Congrats! I like the stealth look of the universals as well.

Sell your K10?
 

 
If/when you decide you want to upgrade your universal to a custom I don't think you will have a problem selling them. Noble monitors never seem to last long on the FS forum.
 
Depending on your usage scenarios, having a secondary universal can be more suitable/convenient than customs sometimes. Although having a K10C and K10U would perhaps be a little excessive!
 
A K10C and a Savant uni on the other hand...

Customs are a bit of hassle. Impressions, Risky. Fit issues, lower resale. However, if it all comes together, you cannot beat having something especially made for you.
As to the waiting, it gets quite BDSM in the end! :wink:
