Noble Kublai Khan Universal
The Kublai Khan was designed to improve upon the award winning Khan by improving bass performance, addressing some of the harshness that the Piezo super-tweeter and fixing the iphone electromagnetic interference issue.
The 10mm bass driver paired with the bone conductor subwoofer fills out the entire lower frequency range without making the bass sound bloated and even more importantly, without masking the higher frequencies that the Khan excels at. It is well known that if the bass is too strong it can rob the music of detail. This phenomenon is referred to as "masking." The bone conductor allows for greater bass response without the masking effect.
The 4 Knowles BA drivers were specifically chosen for excellent mid-low and mid-high performance.
Piezo drivers are known for producing some of the clearest and most precise high frequency reproduction possible. However, Piezo drivers are terrible at all other frequencies. For this reason, the Piezo super tweeter used in the Kublai Khan is only used for the highest frequencies. This gives the Kublai Khan a very open-air and natural sound that excels at detail and accuracy without being overly harsh.
