The president of Noble Audio and an audiologist by training, Dr. John Moulton has been delighting the community with beautiful, great-sounding in-ear monitors for years. So much so, in fact, that fans have nicknamed him the Wizard—so when we wanted our own bit of magic, we knew where to turn ... Read More

I bought the MD Noble X Universal second hand, lightly used and well cared for, for $125. I felt it was a steal at that price. But a few things about them I've noticed: they don't need much juice to drive but still do fairly well being amp'd. I think they pair best with a brighter source. My LG V30 in high impedance mode sounds really good with them. But then my iFi Nano BL/Liquid Spark in high output mode sounds congested. Low output with the Liquid Spark sounds a bit better but with the V30, the pairing feels less congested overall. @ $249 new these are quite expensive for what's currently out there. I'd say the Ibasso IT01, which I own, share a lot of similarities with Noble X Universal except that they're more v-shaped and yet have greater clarity presence with vocals. Vocals with the Noble X Universal, though mid-centric, vocals feel a little bit recessed in comparison. Timber and imaging of instruments, especially guitar and piano, with the Noble X edges out the IT01 though. The Noble X Universal is great for rock music, chamber music and jazz. With more modern music, hip hop and electronic/ambient music, I reach for the IT01. And fwiw, wide bore tips! Wide bore tips for either of these IEMs. I use Auvio Mediums personally.

I've said it before, and will say it again: If they're made to have a "fun sound", and not monitoring, don't call them IEMs. They are not monitors. They are in-ear headphones.

I think the other term you're looking for is "earphones" or just plain "in-ears." Most just say IEMs due to habit IMO.

Would these be good for someone who listens primarily to Rock, Metal, and Indie Rock? Some can be kinda bass heavy but i don't mind a more balanced bass.

Just looking for some general recommendations here. I've been using klipsch x11i's for the last 4 years or so. Theyre nice, light, and sound good, but I'd like to have another pair to rotate in and out. I'm just looking for a change, either a compliment to the x11i or an upgrade. something in the $100-300 range. For some reason the iem world seems a little more foreign than the desktop openback world in terms of figuring out whats what.

A few questions: I'm looking at getting balanced IEM cables for Pono. The Pin I've found refers to a 092 dual pin. Anyone know if they fit this Noble IEM? What sort of burn in period to expect? Does the bass kick in more after a burn in period? I switched the foam tips to my Comply T-500's and got a bit more bass.

I would doubt it, I don’t believe balanced armatures benefit from burn in. The seal from the tips will have the biggest impact on bass response.
