Is it possible to get custom sleeves for these universal IEMs either directly from Nobel or 3rd parties? Thanks.
There was a head fi member that posted photos of a custom sleeve for his encore
So in theory it is possible
Thanks for replying. Do you have the link?
I think the photo was posted in the wizard returns thread, it wasn't posted very long ago
If you buy these, Noble typically will not turn a universal into a custom or a custom into a universal. You could try reaching out to them to see if they would make an exception. otherwise, you'd have to start the process with them on one of their custom sets.
I think he was referring to custom eartips (i.e. eartips that are custom molded for your ear), rather than reshelling (which would convert a custom to universal and vice versa).
Yup, missed the sleeve part. I haven't seen anyone with just sleeves for the Nobles but I know Noble has converted universals to customs for those that have asked and are persistent. Still think it's worth asking in the off-chance they say yeah.
"I know Noble has converted universals to customs for those that have asked and are persistent. "
No, I would not bank on that statement, and to be very clear, converting (pulling the parts out and installing them into a custom shell) service is not provided and will be denied if asked.
About what I figured. There was someone who posted in the forums about the experience so I figured it was just a one-off or something to that effect.
Edit: I found the old post and the individual had purchased customs used and had them reshelled. That was a mistake on my part reading that. I thought they had universals being reshelled, not customs.
