With the Massdrop x Noble Kaiser 10 custom in-ear monitors, we’re bringing back Noble’s previous flagship—lauded by Forbes, The Verge, and InnerFidelity, and long rated Head-Fi users’ favorite IEM—for a more accessible price. Also known as the K10, this model uses the same tuning as the Noble Kaiser 10, with 10 Knowles balanced-armature drivers per ear. Each pair is assembled and matched by hand, and the precision-machined faceplate and shell can be customized with your choice of artwork or swirl designs. This CIEM is sensitive enough for use with smartphones, as well as portable digital audio players and amps.
Note: This drop qualifies for a $150 instant rebate for a final price of $1,249.99. At checkout, choose from nine different combinations for the faceplate and shell. For an additional $40, you can add a 50-inch lightning cable or a 2.5mm TRRS balanced cable. This drop will close at 110 units sold.
Because these are custom IEMs, you'll be responsible for having ear impressions made with an audiologist and sending them to Noble Audio in Santa Barbara (address will be provided). Noble must receive tracking info on the impressions within 6 weeks of the drop completing, or your order will be canceled and refunded—no exceptions or extensions.
All orders will be shipped by the vendor.
Estimated ship date is Oct 22, 2018 PT.
After the drop ends, payment will be collected. To deliver the best value to the group the request will then be submitted to the vendor up front, making all sales final. Be sure to check the discussion page for updates.
