With xMEMS helping deliver exceptional sound quality, phase coherence, and treble extension, the XM1 is further evidence of Noble Audio’s status as a leader in portable audio experiences. Here’s what the rest of the company’s press release had to say.
The XM1 is Noble Audio’s first wired USB-C product, designed to bring audiophile grade sound quality to smartphone users without requiring an additional DAC and amplifier. Ease of use and convenience were key factors in the development of this product, following Noble Audio’s “sound quality-first” philosophy.
The XM1 was designed using Noble Audio’s “Trinity design principle” that emphasizes the selection of drivers, usability, and industrial design to craft a luxurious and enjoyable medium for listening to music at home, on the go, or wherever the user may be.
- Drivers: Hybrid 2-way configuration of xMEMS Cowell, delivering crystal clear mids and highs, and an 8.3mm high-performance dynamic driver for thunderous bass. The MEMS and dynamic drivers work in tandem to deliver a new level of sound performance.
- Usability and ease of use: Given that smartphones are such an integral part of our day-to-day lives, the easiest way to consume media at its highest lossless quality and without compromise is through a wired USB-C port. Noble Audio is responding to audio enthusiasts’ desire for the best possible direct-from-smartphone audio with the launch of the XM1, which requires no external dongle, DAC or amplifier. Using an innovative active USB-C high-quality cable with 4 pin connections, just plug XM1 in to your smartphone, hit play, and enjoy the music.
- Luxurious design: The XM1 keeps with the Noble Audio tradition of world renowned, breathtaking industrial designs. Aluminum shells with stainless-steel nozzles and wax guards all contribute to a gorgeous aesthetic, while remaining rugged and durable enough to last for years of daily use.
The Noble Audio XM1 will start shipping in Jan. 2024 for MSRP of $699 USD.
