14th February 2017, Santa Barbara, USA — following its announcement late in 2016, Noble Audio’s groundbreaking Kaiser Encore, its new proprietary technology 10-driver in-ear monitor built for high-resolution audio, is now in full production and ready to order
First revealed in late 2016, Noble Audio’s new Kaiser Encore, a ten-driver in-ear monitor which now features proprietary drive units, 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 Encore retains the musical essence and engaging presentation of its predecessor while introducing the sonic advantages of proprietary drive units, x10! 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.
The implementation of 10 Noble Audio drivers per earpiece allows the Kaiser Encore to take full advantage of today’s high-resolution music, reproducing the full frequency range, dynamics and detail. The increased clarity that the new proprietary balanced armature drivers bring, also contributes to a larger soundstage presentation, with greater imaging accuracy and enhanced spatial representation, giving the feeling of larger, on-ear model.
The Kaiser Encore also introduces a number of aesthetic improvements over its predecessor and features Noble’s updated universal form factor and geometry. 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, allowing 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).
Further features include a Pelican 1010 case (crush-proof carrying case); a black velvet soft pouch; 12 pairs of ear tips (four kinds in three sizes); two Noble Audio bands or amp bands; a cleaning tool; a Noble cable and an ownership card.Noble Audio Encore IEM
