Noble Savant IEM Measurements and Review (Succinct) Wasn't there some minor drama behind the Savants? I believe some people bitched that it didn't have enough drivers. They were somehow through mysterious forces or through wishful thinking led to believe that these had more drivers. When it comes down to it, who cares? Counting drivers in an IEM is like counting the number of testicles or nipples a person has. It really doesn't make a difference. People with one testicle can still make babies and some IEMS with one of two drivers sound fantastic. Bottom line is how they sound; but I will start with measurements first. See general measurement notes before digesting the plots below: http://www.superbestaudiofriends.org/index.php?threads/note-on-iem-measurements-changelog.2153/ Noble Savant IEM Frequency Response Noble Savant IEM Distortion [DEFUNCT] Noble Savant IEM Impedance and Phase (electrical) Measurement Notes Measurements actually look pretty decent. Very slight mid-bass bump, not too different from the Sennheiser 6X0 headphones. A push up between 2kHz and 3kHz (maybe a little bit too much). Good distortion figures (for balanced armatures) from 40Hz and up. Because of its impedance curve, some care needs to me taken with amplification. The Savants will sound bright from devices with high source impedance.
