Maybe check with Headphonebar? They don't stock the pads but they do carry Beyerdynamic headphones so they may be able to help you?
I wouldn't necessarily count out the the ASG-1s out straight away if what you're coming from are the IE8s. Before the ASG-1s arrived, I'd mostly been listening to full-sized headphones or clip-ons so me perceiving the soundstage as being narrow is probably to be expected. In fact, it's probably a compliment about the height of the ASG-1s since the fact that I perceive it to be narrow rather than just plain small means that the height is still fairly impressive for an...
  I see what you mean. I think it could very well be meant to fit in there but it's not at the right angle to fit into the fold of my ear at that point. It sort of fits if I pull my ear and push it in there, but it doesn't stay in the fold on its own. Maybe my ears are not as typical of the 90% as I thought they were. They are pretty snug and low profile though. I haven't actually tried it out, but they feel secure enough to go running with. The first picture I put up of...
No issues with the shape whatsoever. I've been using them for hours at a stretch with no comfort issues. I don't have any customs yet, so I can't comment on how they would compare to one, but they have a nice snug fit. Far more ergonomic than the UE Superfi 5Pro and original Radius DDM I've tried before. No worries about them becoming dislodged or falling out through normal use. However, I do think my ears are pretty close to the average type that universal fit IEMs are...
Do note that I'm not using the stock tips in the following pictures.              
I'll try to get some pics up tomorrow or the next couple of days, but here are my impressions thus far:   The ASG-1s remind me somewhat of the JVC FXT90 in that they both have a very forward sound with the ASG-1 actually being even more forward and transparent. It really forces you to pay attention, so I can imagine it being a little fatiguing to listen for long periods depending on your personal tolerance. However, unlike the FXT90, there is absolutely no trace of...
The ASG-1s I ordered have arrived. I have to say that the frosted clear finish looks a lot better in real life. I didn't think I was going to like their appearance based on the pictures I've seen but they've won me over. They seem solidly built and sturdy. The cable is very nice. Quite supple and as far as I can tell, very well braided and put together. As an aside, the cable seem like a good possible choice for people who want a more budget-conscious alternative cable...
Karlw, Do you think you could name some other bass-heavy IEMs you've tried? One person's idea of not enough/sufficient/too much bass could be completely different from that of another person, so it might be helpful to know where you're coming from.   Also, you said that you haven't tried messing with the ambient tuning port, but could you check how much of a difference it makes? I sometimes find IEMs to be a little fatiguing due to how closed-in they sound and the...
It's the Chinese New Year. For all intents and purposes, you can basically consider the entire country closed for business for the next 2 weeks.
    Quote: I think Klipsch uses the same standard tip for all their IEMs don't they? I bought a pack of the large single flange tips and I was able to make them fit. It requires a bit of elbow grease but I was able to put them on.   I have the L2 version and I like it alot. The gold finish is a very pale gold and looks pretty close to silver. It's not garish and looks pretty understated and classy in my opinion.  With that being said, the most striking thing about the...
