I own the Noble TUX 5 ( which are amazing ) and wanted these for travel with use of an iPhone with a Audioquest Dragonfly Cobalt streaming Quobuz. I wish they were a bit more open and the highs had better sparkle. I wouldn’t consider them “ dark” but just not “open” enough sounding. Bass is great but I could and would sacrifice 25-30% of it for better soundstage and revealing highs.
Still not sure if if keeping them or selling them off.
