Yeah Rip, I hear them the same way and agree with your description. I gave up the fight, ordered the 232's and I couldn't be happier. The only IEM that I've owned that come close to the 232's was the W4, but the more I listen to these, the less I remember about the W4.. Heck, I like the 112's more than the ASG's, but that's a story for another day.
With the 232s vs W4s, I feel like I'm stuck in a lows vs mids battle (for my tastes in sound)... It's a really tough decision too, but 232s always take that slight edge (even though the W4s are technically better) :)
