Noble Audio’s groundbreaking Kaiser Encore, its new proprietary technology 10-driver in-ear monitor (IEM), is now in full production and ready to order!
First revealed in late 2016, Noble Audio’s new Kaiser Encore, is in full production and available for immediate shipping.
The US-made Kaiser Encore is built for high-performance audio and is a direct descendant of Noble’s Kaiser 10U, arguably the most acclaimed IEM there’s ever been.
The new Kaiser retains the musical essence and engaging presentation of its predecessor while introducing the sonic advantages of 10 proprietary drive units.
The Kaiser Encore builds on the K10U’s success with Noble’s own balanced-armature drivers taking performance to the next level.
The proprietary drive units introduce improvements to the critical midrange, adding additional clarity and bringing a more neutral tonal balance. The redefined midrange integrates seamlessly with the rest of the frequency spectrum as with Noble’s other multi-driver IEMs and CIEMs (Custom IEMs).
The implementation of 10 Noble Audio drivers per earpiece allows the Kaiser Encore to take full advantage of today’s high-resolution music. This means the IEMs are able to reproduce the full frequency range, dynamics and detail.
This increased clarity also contributes to a larger soundstage presentation, with greater imaging accuracy and enhanced spatial representation. Noble says that this all comes together to give “the feeling of [a] larger, on-ear model.”
There are also a number of aesthetic improvements over its predecessor.
Each 10-driver piece features beautifully designed, US-made precision-machined aluminium housings, with each pair hand-assembled and matched. The two-part aluminium chassis is smaller and lighter than the previous Kaiser 10U flagship.
Sensitive enough for everyday use with smartphones, portable amps and DAPs (Digital Audio Players), the Kaiser Encore features a detachable cable with an industry standard 2-pin connection. This fitment allows for future upgrades from aftermarket cable specialists.
The Kaiser Encore is available in universal form, as a custom-fit version (using acrylic) and in Noble Audio’s Prestige format (machined from exotic solid materials).
