Lauded by Forbes, The Verge, and InnerFidelity, and long rated Head-Fi users’ favorite IEM, the Noble Kaiser 10 returns as the Massdrop x Noble Kaiser 10. Also known as the K10, this model uses the same tuning as the company’s previous flagship, with 10 Knowles balanced-armature drivers per ear. Each pair is assembled and matched by hand, and the precision-machined aluminum housings feature Noble’s updated universal form factor and geometry—now with red faceplates and matte black shells. This IEM is sensitive enough for use with smartphones, as well as portable digital audio players and amps. Available only on Massdrop, and for nearly half the price of the original, it offers a new entry into Noble’s high-end line.

You can add the Drop + THX AAA™ 789 Linear Amplifier (+ $375) and save $25 versus buying it separately.
Announced at CES 2018, the Drop + THX Achromatic Audio Amplifier (THX AAA™) 789 is a linear bipolar amplifier with feed-forward error correction. It’s designed for objectivists who appreciate an incredibly clean, transparent amp—the sought-after “wire with gain” whose amplification is wholly uncolored by a sound of its own. Made in collaboration with THX Ltd., it features the company’s groundbreaking THX AAA and feed-forward topology, which reduce distortion by 20 to 40 dB for realistic, fatigue-free listening. In fact, this bridged-output amp’s performance figures speak for themselves: It’s powerful (2 x 6W at 32 ohms) and quiet (136 dB SNR) with a record-low THD of -140 dB at 300 ohms, 100 mW. That’s four times the power of the Objective 2 amp, for example, with far less distortion.
All orders will be shipped by Drop.
