Though Noble Audio has a clear pricing scheme that generally correlates to the number of drivers, they clearly stress that buyers should research into the model that best suits their tonal preference rather than going straight for the flagship (and this is the reason why Noble has two identically priced flagship earphones). But even among the nicely balanced Sage and the vibrant Dulce Bass, I can easily see a lot of buyers coughing up a bit more for the Django which combines the best elements of both.
It is a steeply priced earphone just shy of $1000 USD so any comments on value are really defunct, but the Django keeps pace with similarly priced models through its exceptional dynamics and powerful yet natural sound. Moreover, they retain enough balance to avoid coming off as muffled or veiled, the Django has a bold analogue character with some sprinkles of solid state resolution, detailing and clarity. They are far from the most revealing, transparent earphone out there and their large housings may present issue for smaller eared folk but the Django is a very compelling in-ear that I would happily recommend.
Verdict – 9/10, The Django is a luxury product first and foremost, but it does provide a similarly extravagant build and performance that suits that price tag. The Django is a wonderful mix of musicality and versatility wrapped within almost class leading dynamics. Their more unorthodox tuning won’t suit every buyer, but many will find enjoyment after acclimatization and few will have any issue with their unfatiguing, musical tones.
