    My current setup is JH13 (original) customed with whiplash twau ref cable terminated in furutech rhodium 3.5mm and eidolic premier 2pins. And i would still personally rate them as the best i have heard even above noble k10/ 64 audio a18/ tia trio because it just sounds right to me in every aspect. But this is just my personal preference, so take it with a grain of salt.
    Also, you will be surprised how much a cable and its termination changes the sound of the iem, so go along and try out different cables to match it to your taste before committing.

    You can try getting the audirect beam if you want to pair up your iphone with the noble khan, sounds really good.

    1. Shure KSE1200/1500
    2. Moondrop Kansas Pro
    (best recommendation i ever got)


    3. Westone W40 (balanced)
    4. AKG N40
    AKG N5005
    1More Triple-Driver
    Westone W40 (unbalanced)

    Not so good

    8. Shure SE535
    9. The rest

    Though the KSE 1200 were the best quality wise they showed me that soundquality doesn't automatically mean more enjoyment. So the only IEMs i'd really recommend are the Kansas Pro which i find incredibly good and outmatch even most of the sub 1000$ over ears i heard.

    The KPE are nice for what they are but they're not the best for those who prefer a bit of substance in the low end (though I've heard that changes after 100hours or so of burn in which mine don't have yet).

    What do you prefer about the Andromeda relative to the Solaris? One day down the road I'll be looking for another IEM to complement the Atlas and the Solaris and Andromeda are high in the running (sadly everything else in your upper tiers is well out of my price bracket lol).

    The Atlas and Solaris sound less clear to me and I'm not used to the amount of bass they put out. They're pretty close though in overall sound quality. I just prefer transparency to bass at the moment.

    Do you mind comparing the IER-Z1R to the U18t, Andro, and/or Solaris? I'm very interested in the IER-Z1R but have yet to demo it.

    The IER-Z1R is like the Andromeda plus bass. Sounds a lot like the MDR-Z1R. Still very clear sounding though. Clearer sounding than the Solaris and U18t. I'd say the U18t is a little better overall than the Solaris, which sounded darker and not quite as clear. I think the bass was a little muddier on the Solaris.
