Having shot Noble Audio's commercial CIEMs and UIEMs since the end of 2014, I am intimately familiar with the look, feel, and build of each and every model. John Darko puts the competitive IEM market into perspective:
When Noble Audio's Brannan Mason sent over the latest IEM shells in early February, I was blown away. But what the eye sees and what the macro lens sees are two different things. Even at 1:1 magnifications, the new metal shells hold up brilliantly, representing the best metal work I've seen in an earphone to date. And, as they are anodised on and milled from reflective aluminium, the way their colour adjusts under different light brings forth an almost new face.
Looks are one thing. Sound is another. And Noble Audio have a strong, and loyal following because they carefully mould both sound and style to make earphones unique in the market.
