Noble Audio Kaiser Universal Review (K10) | Audiophile Review

Hand-assembled in California. The highest configuration by Noble Audio featuring 10 Balanced armature drivers on each side house in an aluminium housing. Despite being 20 total drivers you don’t need separate amps or DACs to power this by as it’s sensitive enough for smartphone usage and I have zero problem run it with my Iphone 6 at 4 volume bar. You can pay extra to get a custom fit for better grip and comfort as well as getting other housing finish like acrylic or wood.

Tiaan – Be Okay: Low frequency bass is very energetic and notable, little too strong in my opinion had to lower the volume a bit. No bass distortion.

Mid range and the range perform excellently, Separation of vocals and instrumentals is distinct. Vocal echoing, humming and when he goes voice deep is eye candy, great body.
The XX – Intro: Drums are good little tiny bit muffled won’t be noticeable to untrained ears, falls short fast. Snare is sharp, right pitch sounding. Echoing of vocal are awesome you can count out many singers. Bass guitar is okay, little soft sounding.
