Noble Audio unveils K10U aluminium in-ear monitor

The aluminium in-ears replace the outgoing K10U and use Noble’s 10-driver flagship configuration, which has previously been used in the company’s high-end in-ear monitors and custom in-ear monitors.

Housed within the aluminium casing is a ten-armature low-impedance four-way design, which Noble says delivers a "highly coherent presentation across a wide frequency range and delivers the best-ever performance from a portable IEM product". The 10 drivers are assigned to bass, mid-range, mid/high, high and super-high frequencies.

The headphones have a detachable two-pin cable and come supplied with a Pelican 1010 crush-proof carry case, velvet pouch, 12 pairs of ear tips and a cleaning tool.

The Noble Kaiser 10U aluminium in-ears are available now in two finishes for £999.

But being the wonderful English guy he is, he helps out with content across a number of Future sites, including What Hi-Fi?. It wouldn't be his first exposure to the world of all things hi-fi and home cinema, as his first role in technology journalism was with What Hi-Fi? in the UK. Clearly he pined to return after making the move to Australia and the team have welcomed him back with arms wide open.
