(Wanted to repost under reviews but wasn't able to) I am grateful to see this drop as it enables more people to experience something extraordinary. Furthermore, in case you read this Dr. John, I highly appreciate that you take time off your schedule to tend to queries even here. It is a good feeling to have a person, the creator of his own art, staying true to himself even after this success. Hats off to you. Brought a pair of 10U for long term demoing to decide whether I wish to go custom, I would like to ask if there is a possibility to also have the Encore as drop. Having the 10U leaves me with mixed feelings. The cable is rather unsatisfactory as it is comfy but does not stay in place behind my ears, the tips are of rather insufficient quality and either do not seal or slide out after a while. Final Type E tips, which are not easy to get in Germany, have been suggested and will try to get them alongside with Comply t500 tips. For now I am using Shure black olives with their core removed and that is ok, just not great. I think many would agree that they rather pay a little extra for higher quality. Sound-wise I am impressed by how unimpressive they sound. Very silky, a tad warm, lush, intimate sound with slightly recessed treble. Depending on what is being played I can't help but appreciate, sometimes I up the volume without knowing due to its smooth and effortless display. As there are plenty reviews out there, I'd try to use an analogy. These K10 give a feeling of being in a cosy, sophisticated, slightly damp living room with windows closed. All of that sensation, it is right there without being overwhelming in its subtleness , multi-layered and expressed as an organic whole. Sometimes, however, K10 may also sound muffed. You wish to open the window, to let some fresh air enter the room. To have a little more sparkle, to experience everything with a bit more space, more air to breathe. You'd be a little less cozy but more clear headed. Overall, you might feel better. This sensation is where I wonder whether the K10 couldn't be improved and where my interest for the Encore sparks and where a drop version of those would come handy. Greetings from Germany

Guys, there is no info in specs here about 2pin configuration. Some of You claim it's standard 0.78 diameter but my cables don't fit well. It's so tight that I'm afraid I'm gonna break them plugging it out. Isn't it 0.75?

It is .78 Trouble is, there is no standard deviation of tolerances between cable manufacturers. In other words the standard is .78 +- a microscopic fraction. But how big that fraction is differs across the industry. Due to this, the warranty does not cover damage caused by using a 3rd party cable, as Noble can not be held responsible for cable companies utilizing wider tolerances than the tolerances used by Noble.

i got zeus first then k10ua. I prefer the balance sound of the k10ua. i found the zeus has more sparkles but lacks coherence and smoothness . and due to its low resistance/high sensitive, hiss is audible through my sp1000m or even my smsl sp200 desktop amp (strangely, there's no hiss if directly play from my s10+). if i can only have one, my vote will go to k10ua

Are these coming back to EU at $550? I sold the pair I bought for $900 last year and miss them.

All pricing complaints aside (I paid $600 - haha!), I've spent some time with these and I must say: 1) Get rid of that bag of stock tips. 2) Buy SpinFit CP240 (double flange), particularly the small ones. I've tried the stock tips, Spiral Dots, Symbio, Comply, SpinFit CP500, all sorts of stuff. The CP240 is the best and it's not even close (although foam tips like Comply come second). These IEMs require deep insertion to avoid too much sibilance, and that's not necessarily easy with this shell shape. The CP240s allow for deep insertion, and the double flange keeps the IEMs secure while providing a perfect seal. The treble remains crystal clear while being silky smooth. An absolute must-try.

You should try Final Audio Type E tips. By far, my fave silicon tips by a long mile. They've replaced all my others unless I'm using a triple flange. They also FR match each pair so you get consistency with each set. Something I don't think any other manufacturer does.

Purchased on your recommendation! The best part about the SpinFit double flange is they kept the Kaiser still in my ear, instead of constantly sliding out. We shall see how these go.
