I had just heard their whole line of IEM'S last weekend, and to be honest I wasn't very impressed with any of them. The highest was made of machined aluminum and had a very metallic sound to them. I will say that these were the best sounding out of the line, but the highs were a little peaky and lows some what drowned out the mids. You'll look kinda goofy wearing these in public, because they protrude to far out and got caught on the collar or my jacket. All around I wouldn't pay what they are asking for the IEM'S, they'd have to be around the 300 dollar range for me to even think about it.
Is the Noble 6 better than the Savant?
Well honestly it depends on what you plan listening too. The noble 6 sounded best all around, where as the savant were better with rock and electronic music.
The custom K10 sounds a lot less metallic than the newer K10U. I vastly prefer how my custom sounds. The aluminum K10U definitely has a lot harsher treble, which isn't present on the older K10U or on the acrylic customs.
I think that it is a little naive to expect a 6 driver IEM to be in the $300 range, but I also don't think the N6 is overpriced at the current MSRP.
I have also heard the whole lineup, and actually own the K10, N3, and N4 (as well as the SE846 and plenty of others).
The N6 is the best all-rounder for the price. The K10 is definitely better, but it is also more expensive. FWIW, I do slightly prefer the N6 to the SE846 and have been on the fence about getting the 6S.
I personally think that this is a very good deal on the N6, and I also think that tip selection and finding the right tips goes a long way to enjoying the sound. I have to use a comply tip with the Noble universals -- none of the provided tips give me a good seal.
Yes, the N6, to me, sounds better than the Savant. I honestly didn't really like the savant, at least compared to the other Noble IEMs. It may be a "baby K10", but it definitely doesn't hold a candle to the big brother.
What direction would you go out of the Noble Lineup for EDM music? (slight bass hump, balanced mids, treble clarity with slight roll off etc)
Lol, I just did a review of the Savant, wasn't massively wowed with the sound either.
Noble 3s are pretty good for EDM.
I definitely second the 3 for EDM. The 3 has an awesome sound signature, and it's definitely a bit more energetic and "fun".
