Yes, but too warm for me and not refined enough for my taste. Even if I am not a big fan of that signature I found them to sound good though. Relaxed, laid back.
I bought Noble 4 and it is perfect match with HM-901 and minibox card.
For someone who likes some warmth and wants to listen for several hours with no fatigue I think it is a good start. Confort is the same for all Noble's products, excellent.

If he wanted customs down the road, no need to sell the K10U, just have someone reshell them. This is assuming the usual suspects do 10 driver units.

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. Once you insert a well crafted K10, you'll realize why it was worth the wait. Apart from the sonic differences (if any), the one true advantage of a CIEM is the sheer bliss of listening to your music in absolute clarity AND comfort. :wink:

That's right - there is nothing as good as a well made custom - universals can never quite match it

Joke time.
 
A child asked his father, "How were people born?" So his father said, "Adam and Eve made babies, then their babies became adults and made babies, and so on." The child then went to his mother, asked her the same question and she told him, "We were monkeys then we evolved to become like we are now." The child ran back to his father and said, "You lied to me!" His father replied, "No, your mom was talking about her side of the family.

I initially got the K10U thinking if I really liked it, I would go for customs and sell the U when the customs arrive. However, Having spent a few flights with the K10U, they fit really well in my ears and the first universals I've had that stay in place when I'm chewing. Very comfortable too so I may just stay with the universals. Since I am a bit obsessive, I would never be able to select from all the different custom options so that's another bonus for the K10U!
 
I am going to wait until Nov Black Friday to see if Noble offers any special deals on customs. I should be able to decide on the custom options by then LOL.

Contact them via email if you haven't already.  Brannan will usually get back to you within a few hours if he's not traveling for business and usually within a few days if he is.

Brannan's usually very quick, same-day or w/in 24 hours. However, I think he was at THE Show this weekend so might be recovering a bit. He also monitors this page pretty well. Cheers

This is a joke right? I did all the real work, like walk in for free. Make change for a $20, make customers laugh. Share music with customers and talk with zach from ZMF right behind a guy listening to a set of VERY open back headphones.

universal ver is not any less painful, i waited about 4 months for my k10u order............


Yes, it is probably best to check with our dealers around the world and see if they have any k10 univ in stock in order to get faster gratification. I have heard that our dealers in Thailand have few k10'universals in stock now. They can be contacted through e-mail

I agree. Also I'm still waiting for my Savvys, ordered around 2 months ago? Though the wait is fine as I have time to burn in my beautiful Wagnus Cables. Wiz, you guys really need to work with Wagnus for the Wagnus Noble upgrade cable. Seriously.

I always enjoy shows... I get to meet fellow head-fiers and the fellow "Nobility" :)

Regarding Savants
 
1) Kind of the same concept for Savi Universals, as we did have some dealers place orders before the official launch on the Noble Web Site (Thailand & Japan) Thailand may still have some Savant universals in stock now.  
 
2) Your Savants are a Prestige build & those take a bit more time to create. (sorry)

I am positive Brannan was honored to meet me.
