Noble Audio and Massdrop have teamed up for a drop of a Noble dual BA IEM. It sounds like they will be a blend of the Savant but also the Savanna and Django models. The link to Jude’s review on Head-Fi is below:

Review of M4 IEMs
Noble Audio has just announced two new IEMS, the Kaiser Encore and the Sage. The Encore is the replacement for the venerable K10. The Wizard has tweaked the mid-range to provide a “larger soundstage and presentation.” The Sage appears to replace the well received Savant but with “increased low-end extension with more texture with a slight lift in overall bass response.”
The announcement is over and Head-Fi. The link below will take you there.
