Hi everyone, We’re checking in to let you know the Massdrop x Noble Luxe In-Ear Monitors have arrived at the warehouse, and the team is wrapping up quality control checks. We’re on track to meet our estimated ship date of July 16, and we’re looking forward to you receiving the first production of the Noble Luxe IEMs!
Canny sound. But nice build quality. Not for music. Okay for pc gaming and such.
Had these for a few days now and I really like the sound. They hit HARD with a ton of low end presence but they aren't dark nor are they lacking in energy. The mids and highs sound "right" to my ears and have enough presence without being bright or harsh. I would like some foam tips for them and am wondering what might be the correct size / type to order from Comply. The included silicone tips aren't bad but I find good foam tips to always seal better. Anyone know?

On the advice of the good folks at Comply I ordered some of their SmartCore series tips (the Audio Pro) in medium and I am happy to report that they work well and sound great. Because of the better seal of the memory foam the bass is even cleaner and more powerful and of course the isolation and comfort are both improved over the stock silicone tips.

Going to 2nd the smartcore.. I actually found they make some IEMs sound better than the normal T-series ones. I am suspecting the inside lining is a different material causing the changes.
Hi,
Anyone can suggest how am i to get some support on these buds?
Seems like my headphone jack has detached and would like to know how I can get help or snap it back in place.

What 3rd party tips will fit these IEMs?
I am having trouble getting a good seal in my left ear with the delivered tips.
I love the sound and the feel of them, the design is good as well. I have recommended to friends in need of new IEMs and recommend them to all who happen to notice this drop.
RawNotes
Thanks. Can they be worn cable down? (cable around the ear)
Can anyone comment on the bass of this iem? I have a couple balanced but warm iem's that I love. What I am looking for is to round off my collection with a more bass focused iem. What I have my eyes on at the moment is the HiSound Wooduo 2. All the reviews speak of just what Im looking for, an iem under $100 that is bass focused but not so much of a basshead iem that it bleeds significantly or fully darkens the rest of the sound signature. Based on the frequency chart provided this seems to be very close, objectively, to the wooduo 2.
If anyone has any experience between both that would be perfect, but really any account of what these specifically sound like would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you.

My goodness from the reviews for the Thinksound makes it seem like exactly what I have been looking for. Unfortunately they model has long been out of production/ sale. Is There a connection between wooden housings and more extended bass?
jmoyers91
Yeah if they were still sold id have a backup for sure. I dont think it makes too much difference, i enjoy the aesthetic a lot. Finding something i like as much/more than them hasnt happened yet.
The more I use this - the more I like it!!
You really should get onto this drop - it's worth it!!
The bottom line,,,,,,,How do they sound???
which is left and which is right?

Hi, has anyone in the UK received them yet? The DHL consignment hit the UK on the 14th, but it's gone quiet since, meant to be with Royal Mail but they don't know where it's at, just that it's somewhere...
Just received them and put them in my ears!
I LOVE them. Amazing sound - right up my alley. Lovely bass texture, better than expected, just on the verge of becoming loose - nailing it there. So elevated bass, elevated treble - wonderful sound to my ears, very detailed.
NOTE: this is only my first 5 minutes review. But so far I am VERY happy with my purchase. These are true Noble in ears. For an amazing price.
EDIT: after a few hours - these grew on me. Lovely sound - certainly worth their money!

Mic worked great on a few conference calls I made with them.
However: cable is quite microphonic and to use the mic properly it's better to wear the cable down (not over the ears which I usually prefer). So that's a bit of an issue if you are moving around a lot.
Not an issue while stationary...but voice quality was top according to the people on the call.

Thanks for the help man :)
I just got mine in today and they look, feel, and sound pretty good. I noticed however that the volume up and down function doesn't work properly. Every time I go to adjust the volume up or down with a single press, the volume keeps going up or down until it is at max volume or muted.
Anyone else notice this, or is there any fix for this?
Db105
Mine don’t work at all— only to play/pause

yeah mine is like that too. but only for my macbook. for my android phone, it works as expected.
Cool, I got a shipping notification..... I have very high hopes for these....
Long-ish Road, Short-ish Story Back in 2014, after the Axpona Audio show in Chicago, Brannan of Noble & Will from Massdrop decided to continue chatting about potential projects and visit one of Will’s friends across town. By the end of that night they had agreed on an accessible, $99.99 single driver in-ear monitor product collaboration.
(No Big Deal? Keep in mind that affordable, everyday carry-around IEMs aren’t the usual Noble Audio product segment. Before the first Massdrop/Noble Collab in 2016, Noble IEMs were all $400 to $1850.)
Okay, back to the story…
After developing this original $99.99 product idea to prototypes and even packaging in 2014, the overall quality just wasn’t there by either party’s standards and the mutual milestone had to wait.
Otherwise, this would have been the very first Massdrop Collaboration.
In the Summer of 2016, Noble had another project idea that got things going again. (Thanks, Dr. John, for tuning some more prototypes and to Brannan for bringing them up to SF.)
This second attempt led to the Massdrop x Noble X, a $249.99, 2-driver balanced armature IEM that became a fast favorite and has made a couple thousand new Noble fans.
The next step in our progression was the successful re-boot of the flagship Kaiser 10 at $899.99. The first run of 500 pairs sold out in just a few days.
And…we have now come full-circle to that original vision back in Chicago. The Luxe are about to treat a whole new audience with Noble sound & quality.
Sound “The Massdrop x Noble Luxe has a single dynamic driver known for good timbre & coherence…” Timbre: The character or quality of a musical sound or voice as distinct from its pitch and intensity. This term is used at times to encompass characteristics such as leading edge of notes or transients, weight, and decay. Some audiophiles prefer the sound of electrodynamic drivers to other types of drivers (planar, balanced armature). Coherence: This term refers to the quality of forming a unified, whole sound. If a multiple driver design is executed poorly, the bass, mids, and treble can sound like separate areas with different qualities which can distract from the overall presentation. Though a single driver can have peaks and dips in frequency response, they generally have the same qualities of sound (timbre) throughout their range. Bottom Line: The better the single driver, the better the qualities will be throughout their range, and the range will be larger from bass to treble. The first prototypes back in 2014 didn’t have a very ergonomic cable, a clean microphone, nor as enjoyable a sound signature. Today’s prototype is dynamic and clear. Since the Luxe are made for more portable on-the-go Noble listening (and transportation has a lot of low frequency noise), they have some added kick down low. We’ll get some graphs and impressions of the prototypes going this week. They’re ready.

Volume, Play/Pause, Call & Answer. iPhone and Android.
Awesome, Thank you!
I'm selling Noble EDC Velvet's. I just purchased them but they're way too bassy for my taste. PM me if you're interested.
xbe302
Have you tried dual flange tips? They will lighten the bass noticeably.
Hmm these thing require significant driving power, don't they? 90dB/mW...
So when will the graphs and impressions be up? The drop will be ending quite soon... unless an extension is rendered? :)
phoenixsong
Hi phoenixsong, I have a graph of the Luxe from Marv at SuperBestAudioFriends:

These are brighter than EDC and more v-shaped than EDC3. It's an energetic and fun IEM.
(1) Need a photo of the carrying case;
(2) Are the volume controls compatible with iPhone only or Android only? This is pretty darn important to know;
(3) What's the warranty on these? I'm no IEM audiophile, so ~$100 for something that will likely be subjected to the elements and the roughness of travel is kind of a big outlay.

Thank you!
Why is the warranty only 1 year here when the standard Noble warranty is 2 years?
https://nobleaudio.com/en/support/warranty-information/
This would have been a no-brainer for me, but the lack of user replaceable cables stopped me dead in my tracks. I ended up going for the NuForce EDC instead.
Any frequency response graphs? Bass focused can have many varying interpretations :)
phoenixsong
They hit pretty hard and they have sizzle up top...
How is the noise isolation on these? I've been using Etymotics, which have great isolation, but their cables are so delicate.
Would love to see something similar from Noble sans the inline mic/controls. Any chance of getting a drop like that at some point?
boMD
Another reason to have detachable cables.
Though I'm sure they sound better than they look, these have the design and form factor of $8 generic IEMs you'd find on AliExpress 😛
these look tempting, but i wish they came without the mic.
(i'll probably just end up getting the velvet.)

Pre-launch phase, units are in inventory, e-mail brannan Contact information found on website

Gotcha. Thanks.
Is it possible to get without mic on the cable?
Justrest
No
There is nothing I love more than purchasing something online and waiting 5 months for the product to arrive! For an $89 price point, MASSDROP and NOBLE: (1) layout the money, (2) produce the product, (3) offer the product to the community, (4) and ship in less than 1 month! If the product is great, people will buy it. This is not kickstarter!

Noble does that already. Just go to the website and purchase direct, prices will be significantly higher. 😁

You must be new here.
Nice to see Noble design something to fit the human ear.
Tragique
i agree
Any comments on how the Luxe compare to the Velvet or Bell?
