Sorry for bringing up old thread...

So for BF sales, if i deal direct with Noble, i can request for them to mark my items as sample to avoid GST?

Would they take the risk?

Also, did they ship with tracking number? Which coy they used?

They will declare the items at a slightly lower price, and not samples.

Whether you get hit by GST or not, most of the time you will get, but sometimes, you will be lucky not be charged for GST.

Noble uses UPS. Once your order is shipped, they will provide you a tracking number.

You can ask them to ship to CGW, but whether CGW allows you to underdeclare or not depends on whether Noble attaches the invoice on the package and also whether CGW allows or not.

Do remember that if you underdeclare, the insurance will only cover up to the amount you declare and if anything happens to the package, you will be compensated the declare amount. Noble, UPS, CGW and DHL will not be responsible for your loss.

chaozzzsg 04-11-2014 11:27 PM

Just got the photos from the Noble Audio Lab today. THEY LOOK STUNNING!!! They definitely exceeded my expectation. Can't wait to put them into my ears.

Great job to Team Music Sanctuary (especially to Calvin) for the great customer service provided despite my frequent msg/email, also not forgetting the great Noble Audio Team for the great job.

I will definitely recommend my friends to Music Sanctuary.

More pics will be up when I get this pair of gems

1st pair of CIEM
 
Hey guys

This is my very post here as well as my first CIEM .
I have made my first jump over to CIEM from the common in ears , i have burn through so many off the shelf in ears like Audio techica , sennheiser , Bob marley ,and my newest beyerdynamic DX 160. I have not ,since found any sound signature i would die for , each of these brand has strong bass but muddy, and these are my daily driver in ears till one of my good friend brought me over to music sanctuary to try out some of the IEM i am qucikly addicted to the K10 . So much clarity yet my all favorite punchy bass still resides inside !

Made a purchase and went for a reprint selection .


How long did u guys wait for your K10s ?

The waiting is killing me :s13:

typically the norm for waiting for a custom iem is about 6~9 weeks.

but of course, each manufacturer has its own turnover rate of delivering their own ciems lah.


my worst one was waiting for 12 weeks.. or more.

luvwings 15-11-2015 05:09 PM

just curious would K10 be subjected for black friday discount based on past experience?

M00s3y 15-11-2015 08:02 PM

need some opinion between k10 and JH- Angie. Besides some spec differences and price, which would be a better choice for all rounder ciem?

rickysio 15-11-2015 09:24 PM

Go try and trust your own ear.

Besides trying out yourself, I would say K10 is the better all rounder, there's not really something it's bad at. Angie however sounded cleaner with less bass presence(didn't deal with the screws however).

1. Vision Ears VE6XC
2. Vision Ears VE5
3. ACS Encore
4. Heir Audio 10.A
5. Ultimate Ears UE18Pro
6. Lime Ears Aether
7. Rhines Stage 7
8. HUM Pristine Reference

I have tried most of them, sadly, none of them lasted more than 15 seconds in my ears except for the K10 and A12. But the funny thing about the K10 is the stock cable makes it sounds very lacking. I borrowed my friend's cable and it made a huge improvement.

Sent from a place where the sun don't shine without using GAGT

which cable is he using?

hi all, anyone know how much is Stereo selling K10U?

I was at Stereo today to demo the K10 and I found it a bit underwhelming, at least compared to my Fitear TG334. Not trying to haolian/fanboy here or anything, just honest comments. I've been wanting to see if K10 is a superior upgrade over the TG334 for a while now.

The K10 is very coherent and well-tuned, it's like having a setup with great synergy except it was just iPhone/ALAC > K10. Very natural sync and decay, and you can feel the instruments "let go (放)" and "retract (收)", to use the terminology of those singing competitions. :s13: The nuance is there and you are listening to the song as a whole (rather than vocal-forward etc).

However, the TG334 wins out by a huge margin for me in terms of clarity, excitement, highs and lows. IMO the K10 fares very badly with electric guitars and the bass isn't deep nor punchy at all, in fact I would take the UM Merlin before the K10 for general/pop genres and only K10 if it's towards the acoustic/ballad/instrumental side.

Of course, it could be that the iPhone does no justice to the K10 but nowadays I think people don't really carry stacks around and the Fitear does remarkably well straight out of the iPhone.

The good news, for me at least, is that I'm quite happy with the TG334 as end-game and don't have to worry about K10 anymore :s13:

P.S. Maybe the demo unit is spoilt, I have no idea of knowing. Someone should go check it out, lest I ruin the K10's reputation.

Emospence 16-03-2017 05:40 PM

Digging this thread.

Any custom Kaiser Encore owners?
