Noble VIKING RAGNAR. In store to demo, purchases take on average 1-2 weeks to ship.
A true flagship IEM, Headphone Bar considers it a perfectly tuned blend of 10 drivers per side. Noble takes things to the next level with all aluminum shells for unparalleled rigidity to reduce unwanted sonic vibrations. The faceplates are a work of art, created from stainless steel Damascus forged and shaped by master jeweler Chris Ploof.

The housing is a further refinement of Noble's recent earphones in size and shape, providing a secure fit and is surprisingly compact considering the driver count inside the housing. It has proven easy to achieve a nice seal and have a stable fit - a great design with proven ergonomics.
Noble VIKING RAGNAR uses a 4-way crossover designed by the Wizard, behind that are two 10mm dynamic bass drivers for a full range of controlled sub-bass and bass, while four Knowles balanced armature drivers fill out the upper-bass, mid-range, and upper mid-range. Four electrostatic drivers provide lifelike upper-midrange, highs, and super-highs.
Noble VIKING RAGNAR cable is a beauty - made by Wagnus, Japan. Called the Magnus 4, it sells for $1500cad on its own, Magnus features a 4-core Graphene/Silver cable, a 4.4mm Pentaconn termination, and premium 0.78mm two pin connectors.
Noble VIKING RAGNAR reviews:
Headphone Guru: "I can only think of a couple of price-no-object over-the-ear headphones that can stand up to the Ragnar sonically, in terms of speed, tonal balance, dynamic range, musicality, and soundstage, and none that surpass it. To my ears, it is simply the best IEM available, and among the very finest headphones period."
