Noble X Massdrop special edition

noble-x-massdropWe quite like the In Ear Monitors (IEMs) that Noble Audio produces. Now we’ve just got word that there’s the Noble X special edition which is available exclusively through Massdrop.

That’s right folks. If you’re in the market for some top-notch IEMs then the Noble X looks to be the one to go for.

This really does look to be offering sensational value for money

Noble X IEM

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 only on Massdrop, features Noble’s new proprietary drive units for just $249 (around £200) — a price point not seen before in a Noble product.

These IEMs offer real exclusivity and distinct styling, differentiating it from Noble’s five-strong Classic IEM line, the inspiration for the new model.

noble-x-massdrop-specialYou still get the same build materials and intricate metalwork as Noble’s other models. But, to mark this special edition, you also get 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 features 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.

The promotion, or ‘drop’, is limited to 2,000 units (three per customer) and is available to both US and international consumers.
