The Noble audio always come with a stunning and premium built quality. This time they offer a black and white theme, which includes its premium 8 Core OCC cable (3.5mm plug). Which is decked out with a Tuxedo black and white jacket. However, with a $1299 price tag, the Noble Audio Tux 5 provide a high-contrast color scheme with strong bass. With that in mind, how does it sound? And is that sound worth the price?

What is the design of the Noble Audio Tux 5?
Starting with the design, the Noble Audio Tux 5 offers fabulous black and white 8 Core OCC cable (3.5mm plug). Which is equipped with a tuxedo black and white jacket. At the yoke, those wire splits to white on the right and black on the left, allowing for even easier recognition. However, the 2-pin connections also feature red and blue color indications as well.
Following the cable, it measures a standard 4 ft (1.2 m) and terminates in a standard 3.5 mm single-ended plug. It uses a memory wire over a 2-pin connection, but the wire has a little spring (like FiiO cables), and it doesn’t feel too stiff or uncomfortable (because there are no metal rods inside the memory wire). Once, the headphone in a box makes me think of the khan. Inside, you’ll find the earphone and the removable 2-pin cable, as well as ten pairs of eartips, and a cleaning tool.
Furthermore, the Noble Audio Tux 5 lacks the IP ratings for water and sweat resistance. Henceforth, you can not go outside for swimming or during raining. In like manner, i’ve never had a problem with Noble Audio earphones fitting me, but if you found the Falcon ANC a bit large, you may still enjoy the Tux 5. Smaller in size, it doesn’t feel as tight in my ears as the Khan did.
Internally, these earphones accommodate a total of five drivers, with one dynamic handling for low and two BA drivers for low-mid and mid-highs. Noble is easy to operate for sure these earphones will work with smartphones or portable players.
Overall, the headphone is best and provides a fairly natural sound. I can say that because I already use the khan and Focus Pro headset.

What is the sound quality of the Noble Audio Tux 5?
The Noble Audio Tux 5features a hybrid design with a 10mm dynamic driver for clean powerful bass and sub-bass. Along with drivers, the Tux 5also come with an two balance armature drivers for mid-low frequencies, and for mid-high frequencies. It delivers flagship level sound, truly deserving of the Wizard’s signature.
In the low end, the Tux 5 delivers a decent and powerful sound performance. Full of detail and sportiness, the bass performance criteria, work well with this low music range. When not overly pronounced, the slam at the bottom reminds me of Noble Audio DXII. With just the slightest emphasis, it works well with the rest of the frequency range and doesn’t eat up the surrounding noise. The bass guitars on tracks like Bloodhound Gang’s I Wish I Was Queer So I Could Get Chicks and Daft Punk’s Loose Yourself to Dance look fleshy, but not too thick, retain the analytical winner while staying fun and engaging.
Looking of mids, the Tux 5 really hits its progress. There are a lot of details that show up in instrumentation or vocals. The presentation feels close and intimate without feeling too far ahead, allowing the rest of the frequency range to work closer to these hyper-detailed mids. Tracks like I Still Have Not Found I’m What I’m Looking For U2, or Wolf Like Me By TV On The Radio take full advantage of this loyalty. In the latter, the Tux 5 catches every distortion in the track. Yet the surrounding tools remain contradictory and precise.
The tux load here shows only one whisper. The high heights on tracks like Tumbling Down and Forever Gazing Song by Lovebugs show just how beautiful the sounds of the Tux 5 are. As the singer reaches his highest pitch, however, the high remains accurate but never sounds too harsh or extreme. But these tracks also show how well the altitude works with the lower ends, allowing for a richer, more dynamic sound.
There is enough sound stage here – it looks smaller than what is seen in DXII. But despite the ear design, the Tux 5 looks identically open and spacious, with enough space for intricate tracks to lengthen their legs. The tools occupy their own inseparable spaces. The singer stands apart against the surrounding instruments. And allows for air levelling and subtle noise of clarity and splitting.

What are the best alternative available for the Noble Audio Tux 5?
HUAWEI FreeBuds Pro 2 is best in class alternative the TUX 5 with cheap price and stunning color scheme. It has Quad-Magnet Dynamic drivers and planar diaphragm tech, which is the first in the world, says the company. Moreover, it offers up to 47dB ANC compared to 40dB in the first gen. The company has partnered with French audio brand Devialet fortuning. The HUAWEI FreeBuds Pro 2 is also equipped with three dynamic optimization algorithms that can detect changes in volume, differences in the structure of the ear canal and changes in wearing in real time.
Master and dynamic MW08 is another low cost headset against the TUX 5. Master and dynamic MW08 is a truly wireless earbuds introduced with premium active noise cancellation feature. It is come with a 11mm Beryllium drivers delivers a rich, warm sound that mimics the acoustics of a live performance. Moreover, the earbud offers IPX5 water resistance rating and up to 12 hours of playtime. The MW08 also features total 6 microphone for clear wind reducing voice talk and Bluetooth 5.2 wireless connectivity. With the MW08, you can also switch effortlessly between two devices with convenient multipoint connection. Following all features, let’s see what this earbud gives you.
After the review, I suggest that the Nobel Audio Tux 5 won’t be the most affordable earphone. However, when it comes to earphones around $ 1000, this new model deserves a lot of attention. Likewise, the Tux 5 looks awesome, and I’ll take it personally to any other earphones before touching the 2000 price tag. When stacked up in front of Khan, these earphones offer 90-95% of that sound for about half the price, and also feel a little more comfortable due to being smaller. Take ours The Tux 5 couldn’t be more black-and-white: Khan-esque sound quality in the budget, giving each contestant a run for their money.
