Press release from Noble Audio and Massdrop.
NOBLE AUDIO’S MOST AFFORDABLE IEM AVAILABLE, EXCLUSIVELY FOR A LIMITED PERIOD ON MASSDROP
Just 2,000 proprietary-driver Noble X IEMs available on this first run at $249/c.£200 and time is running out!
1st December 2016, Santa Barbara, USA — Noble Audio, the world’s leading high-performance in-ear monitor (IEM) specialist, has launched the Noble X exclusively on Massdrop, a special limited edition in-ear monitor offering sensational value for money
Noble Audio has collaborated with Massdrop, the community-driven commerce site, to create an exclusive IEM. The new Noble X, which is available for a time-limited period on Massdrop, offers incredible value for money and features Noble’s new proprietary drive units for just $249 (around £200) — a price point not seen before in a Noble product.
The Noble X offers real exclusivity and distinct styling, differentiating it from Noble’s five-strong Classic IEM line, the inspiration for the new model. The Noble X for Massdrop features the same build materials and intricate metalwork as Noble’s other models, but with a unique basket-weave texture and midnight blue finish.
Inside, each unit features two proprietary balanced armature drivers: one for midrange/treble duties and the other for bass; the latter featuring a reconfigured vented port for increased extension and a slight lift in overall bass response.
In response to feedback from Massdrop’s community, the Noble X has a shrink-wrapped cable guide in place of the memory wire featured in Noble’s other models. Further features include a detachable two-pin braided cable, aluminium end caps, plus a Massdrop presentation case with accessories. The promotion, or ‘drop’, is limited to 2,000 units (three per customer) and is available to both US and international consumers.
