To be honest, the biggest overall surprise for me was the resolution. I expected a muffled sound to be frank, but that is not the case with the Falcon. It has excellent dynamics, detail retrieval, and resolution for a TWS IEM. I was hoping Noble to bring a fresh and high-quality sound to this ongoing TWS market madness, and I think they’ve done just that.
Tonality is fairly good for a TWS in my opinion. Could it be better? Yes, but I think this IEM is not necessarily for audiophiles like ourselves, and that is understandable. So it’s not fair to compare it with audiophile IEMs but I think the tonality is good among the TWS IEMs. Yet, you shouldn’t expect too much in that regard and stick to your audiophile gear. There’s a long way to go for TWS IEMs to catch the classic IEMs unfortunately.
The soundstage is wide but not deep. Therefore the sound is mostly left & right. I noticed that with many current TWS offerings from different brands. So it’s not a shocking discovery for me. But the width is quite impressive and it helps to have a spacious and separated feeling. Speaking of separation, the Noble Falcon is also good in that regard.
As a result of the separation performance, the stereo imaging is impressive for a TWS. The background is clean and black enough for you to pick every instrument. Sure, it’s not very sharp like classic IEMs, but it’s good enough.
I don’t have other TWS IEMs in my possession to directly compare the Noble Falcon in detail to. However, I’ve tried some popular ones lately thanks to our new TWS master of Headfonia. Among those I’ve listened to, my favorite two TWS IEMs are the Sennheiser Momentum TWS 2 and this Noble Falcon. The Falcon is a bit better for popular genres, whilst the Momentum TWS 2 presents the sound in a more classic way with a more balanced and flatter response. However, you can take more out of the Falcon with its EQ, and make it closer to the Momentum TWS presentation-wise.
And since its technical performance is one of the very best among the TWS models of late, the Noble Falcon enters to our Best TWS IEM Recommendations without hesitation. This list is going to grow in the upcoming months and years for sure, since the brands are entering this field one after another. As a result, maybe the Falcon will no longer be there if this technology evolves to create better and more audiophile-oriented TWS IEMs.
But for now, it’s one the best you can get.
