“ (This is my first review ever so, if you see something you don't agree with, it's a free country. Voice your opinions. But this is only one person's thoughts. Take it with a grain of salt.) I've been hearing about this IEM for the past year now. I was most intrigued by the reviews. It was hard to see a review about the Xcited (and its older brother, the Xcape IE, which our brother Spica,...” --amzies01

“ Introduction The ASG-2 is Aurisonics' second (official) foray into the world of iems. The guys over at Aurisonics cater primarily to the music professional crowd, and their products are generally tuned for stage use. Their original ASG-1 was a perfect example of this, with its ability to present vocals in a way that made it seem as if the notes were rolling off your own...” --eke2k6
“ I quite literally took a shot with these after the NY Meet. It was between these and the UE900s and I'm rather content with the decision, from the cable to the build, to the fit. Everything works. These are clearly stage monitors tuned so you can ear voices clearly and exact positioning of instruments. Because of this they have a great and slightly forward midrange. However for what they do...” --kyuuketsuki

“ Synopsis: The Aurisonics AS-1b is a very nice custom-fit monitor with a sound tuned for the needs of professional musicians performing on stage. It gives the listener a mid-centric sound that emphasizes the vocal range so a singer stands out in the mix. The large 15mm dynamic driver has an excellent, rich bass and on top there is a non-fatiguing, flat treble. The AS-1b offers musicians and...” --Kunlun
“ Impressed with the sound overall, balanced throughout the frequency range (bass is tight, medium to high frequencies not bad but I still think my Shures are better in the mid to high). That being said, the build is very worrisome - the right shell came apart exposing the tiny speaker and had to be glued. The cord is very flimsy and appears it won't take much of a yank to break the cord....” --jlopes89
The SW-Xcape is a more balanced IEM with a sweet midrange and nice bass, yet never compromises detail anywhere in the spectrum, notably the highs. Highs are neither in the forefront or in the background; they are balanced with the rest of the spectrum and are present as the recording dictates. There is a slight emphasis on the midrange, which is great for strings, vocals, and rock, but is still...
