Given my preferences and my tools, the best of the set was the Noble Kaiser K-10. It just tickled my fancy a bit harder than the other two, lined up best with my expectations — and then exceeded them by more than a little. That’s worthy of an Editor’s Choice award.

THE ARTISANAL IN-EAR MONITOR SPECIALIST
Offering universal-fit and bespoke custom-fit in-ear monitors, Noble is revered internationally for its design aesthetic, craftsmanship, and exceptional sound quality.
The Encore retains the musical essence of the K10 and features a retooled midrange that provides additional clarity and more accurate tonal balance while still integrating seamlessly with the rest of the audio spectrum. Improvements in midrange response contribute to a larger soundstage and presentation compared to the K10 with more precise imaging and superior spatial representation.
Considered by many to have the perfect combination of balance, artistic beauty, and sharpness in its cutting edge, the Katana sword is by all accounts a precision instrument. As a tribute to the exclusivity and craftsmanship of the finest examples, Wizard’s latest design bears the name Katana.
