Fit for intended purpose
Fit and Comfort
The Noble Falcon 2 fit really well, a lot of thought has gone into the way they are shaped, the nozzle is a little longer, and the tips are quite short. They do sit a little deeper in your ears than some other TWS models but once you have found the right tips they offer a very secure fit. These would be excellent for active use, as they don’t at all once inserted.
The comfort is really good, again they sit a littel deeper in your ears but the short tips provide a very solid fit as well as being comfortable for long listening sessions. Due to the secure and slightly deeper fit, they don’t stick out of your ears too much either, always a bonus when they are made for portable use.
The Falcon 2 have a noise pass through mode, one press of the L side and it will activate or deactivate this feature and it works really well when out and about. The left side also controls the volume, 2 clicks for volume down, 3 for volume up, a 1s press on either side will activate siri. A single press on the right side will play/pause music, and 2/3 presses for skipping tracks forward and back. Fairly standard for a TWS model, the button is quite stiff to press the first sew times, but once you get used to it, they are easy to use.
The case uses USB-C or wireless charging to charge it, and the earphones fit securely inside, you get up to 10hrs off a single charge. The Falcon 2 are IPX7 rated so perfect for sports and outdoor use, along with having AAC and Aptx support for high quality bluetooth playback (they use Bluetooth 5.2).
Bass: There is a nice little bit of added energy and punch down low on the Falcon 2, that little driver can provide good body and extension. Luckily though, it doesn’t sound overblown or dominating, they are not what I would consider linear or neutral but for portable use a little added body doesn’t hurt. They can hit hard when called for, but for the most part are just happy to keep the beat in focus without being the main focus.
Midrange: I really like the midrange on theses, it isn’t exactly forward but it is very clean and well presented. The separation between the lows and mids is great, this allows the midrange to cut through and they do so with good clarity. The tonality is also very good here, with a realistic tone, the midrange errs slighty on the warmer side, but overal a very enjoyable presentation.
Treble: The treble is smooth but still well presented in the mix, enough snap and sizzle to keep things exciting but not enough to ever sound grating or fatiguing. It extends without any real noticeable roll-off which isn’t always easy with bluetooth (aptx used in this review). Snares are snappy, cymbals are well defined and don’t get lost in the mix either, overall a well presented and smooth top end.
Soundstaging and Genres
The soundstage isn’t overly wide, however due to good detail and control the separation and stereo imaging makes them sound quite accurate and enjoyable.
They are a good all-rounder with an easy to listen to yet fun sound that is perfectly suited to casual everyday use. This means they handle most genres well, but modern pop and rock sounds particularly fun on these.
Noble may be known for their high-end earphones, however they have made quite an impressive more consumer oriented product. The Falcon 2 have a fun sound signature, with a slight lift in the bass and added treble sparkle, but luckily this doesn’t push the midrange back too far and they still cut through with ease. Overall the Falcon 2 are an excellent TWS earphone, and well worth considering if you want something detailed yet also fun.
