That will definitely happen.

Because this 20% off only applies to direct orders, dealers do not get this offer.

Demos for 8C and K10 are in for treoo...

Seem like they realised people are going to demo and then order from Noble direct.

Think they are not going to release the demo for audition until Black Friday sales are over.

:s13:

They are gonna lose our respect like dat.. but even if it is after black friday and there are no deals, ppl wun be buying as well. They will surely wait for promos.

Taeyeonie 27-11-2013 09:18 AM

I don't see why Treoo has to do that. A good example would be JHA through Jaben. So many people are trying the demo piece in Jaben yet ordering directly. What makes them think people will not go directly when your demo unit is out with no bf sales/sales?

When you do business you will know.

You can argue that yes, people can still demo and then order directly, but that is because Jaben's pricing is way above retail price.

As for Treoo, they are already doing their part by pricing their Nobles at retail price*exchange rate + gst, with a clear explanation in their faq why they are charging gst.

And unfortunately for them, their demo units came just before the black friday sales from Noble Audio, which meant that people will just demo and order direct since the 20% is not offered to resellers, their management team probably thought that they can't accept the fact that people try and buy elsewhere even though they already tried their best to price competitively and therefore decided to delay the demos.

Mayne you guys can drop an email to Noble to get them to intervene.

Yeap, understand your point here.

I think the point those guys were getting at was that yes, people might just try and get direct from Noble Audio at this point of time currently, but what Treoo is doing here is hurting their reputation badly and repercussions will be felt even after the Black Friday sales. With a move like that, people wouldn't see Treoo as a friendly place to shop anymore.

What if we wanted to get something else in addition to the Noble Audio CIEMs? With Treoo blocking the demos like that, it'd definitely leave a bitter taste and people would avoid shopping with Treoo.

Just my 2 cents worth. :s13:

But unfortunately, it's the business decision of their management.

Probably their staffs also no control over this.

Rubick 27-11-2013 01:12 PM

I thought treoo's reputation is already tinted after the elpis saga. Now they are just making things worst.

Even if there is no sale, I will still rather get direct from Noble.

iscrying 27-11-2013 01:53 PM

20% is tempting... haha if only there's a 8.A upgrade option to the Kaiser 10.

Confirm don't have. Wizard doesn't want to have anything to do with Heir Audio.

Your only choice is to sell the 8.A and buy the K10.

iscrying 27-11-2013 03:06 PM

oh well.. still gotta save some love for my 8.As. just got to be contented with what i have. :/ :)
working on my source for now i guess!

just hooted the K10.......now the agonising wait begins

sacredrays 28-11-2013 07:06 PM

what stuff does the universals comes with? Case? spare accessories? I can't find any details on the website..


Btw, is noble 3 a good choice? a bit tempting...

I believe the accessories should be exactly the same as what heir audio's 3ai has since it is competing directly with them and wizard was with Heir previously.

currently with the black friday promotions heir audio 5.0 is selling for usd397, should i get it or top up abit more to usd520 to get the new wizard noble 5?

This one very subjective, head over to head fi forums and see the differences between these iems...... There are different sound signatures and emphasis in some frequency ranges.

More doesn't always mean better, look at fit ear.

Anyway consider the noble universals too, they have a 15 day return policy

Will customer or silicon improves the sound further? There a big price gap

the customer will always improve the sound mah e.g change DAP, cables etc :P

i think you mean silicone vs acrylic?

silicone has a better seal and some feel more comfortable but there is a technological limitation to the number of drivers they can put in. there is a glowing review on head-fi about the 4S. ive never had a silicone custom before.

when you buy your ciem be it acrylic or silicone, know what sound you are looking for, what you want emphasized and research.

noble is quite transparent about the sound signature and the emphasis placed in their whole lineup.

you have till 4PM tomorrow to make up your mind

i made up my mind by taking a blind leap of faith after reading reviews by sorenslim, kunlun and talking to the everpoisonous fathalethal

At the discount price maybe not.

But Singapore customs using some crappy rate. I shipped some stuffs and they used 1.32 as exchange rate. So I paid a lot in gst. :(

It should sound similar to the 3.A, but better!

Anyways just leap of faith lah. I don't think you will go wrong with Noble.

strezzor 30-11-2013 12:54 AM

For all the people with the Nobles, are their CIEMs known for being neutral? I'm looking at it as one of my viable options (on top of 1964 Ears and JH Audio). I don't like neutral earphones but then again, the JH13s are rather neutral but I loved it. Hated the RE0 though.
