didn't watch golden time yet XD, so far only watched "Ore no Nounai Sentakushi" and "Nagi no Asukara" and yet going to watch the 1st Episodes from "Log Horizon, Yuushibu, and maybe Non Biyori " and will keep what i like,  

the rest of the October list that i didn't mention = i didn't like and did  delete them :P i don't watch on going thats the thing, wishing that i didn't start  Nagi no asukara :< 

will start January's list at April ofc :P or later on, i am always  a season behind which got advantages :P specially for 12 eps anime hhehe

Still crap, eh?

Just to clarify:

I don't think the replacement set are crap, they are simply underwhelming. I think the most they are worth after experiencing the GR07's is $200.

I don't like the sub-mid bass balance or bass texture, like vocals, and find the detail retrieval shallow.

I also just recently think I've found the spike people mention after increasing the volume in an attempt to understand the populous. I'm not sure about this either tho frown.gif

You could say ME2 would gladly call the first set crap but they turned out to be defective. If they hadn't:

"as a package and for the price, ASG 2's are crap".
-UnityIsPower

I finally feel quite disappointed in how dale addressed my graph question. I complimented him a while back for comparing his phones to other options but now think Music123's post rings stronger.

Then again I have my own internal problems with feeling confident in my analysis of a products sound. I try posting stuff here and there to attempt stepping out of my comfort zone but I don't know.... and people should know I don't know... I think, right?

I still haven't posted them up for sale yet. I contacted eke about the revisions they are supposedly going to get and other peeps(some present here) about just general stuff on these. Someone contacted me when I posted I will sell, I was waiting for MF to post her impressions as I want to link all of them on the sale thread, including some PM snippets both good and bad.

Thanks fo them pics!!!!!

Yeah, I would agree. Compared to cheaper IEMs that are more balanced and cohesive, the G2 is underwhelming.

 

No problem and good luck selling! :)

As a person who listens to Anison / Vocaloid 90% of the time, I actually prefer more of a V-shaped sound signature. I don't really care about the vocals.

Eh? You can stand the treble of some anison recordings being boosted? :eek:

 

To each their own... Lol

but yes having many headphones for different genres is always good ^^ 

 

Try a 007mk1 or a modified 007A/mk2 with something like a KGSSHV/BHSE/DIY T2 powering it.

 

Slightly dark signature which is very forgiving of j-pop recordings, but still gives oodles of detail because of the electrostat speed/treble presentation. Normal dynamics with a slightly dark response just sounds a little too muddy IMO.

 

I've had the 007 for three years now, and I wouldn't trade it for anything, not even the 009. The life fiber synchronisation is strong for me! :p

 

It won't impress upon first listen, but that's exactly why I think it's so good, it just chews up whatever I throw at it without any of the Hi-Fi pantomime.

Grr, I hope someone at the next Seattle meet brings some 007s that I can hear.

 

How do you modify the 007 MK2 to make it sound better?

 

Lol, don't listen to this man Shini, he'll get you to join the STAX mafia and there's no going back once you're in the mafia like I am. :cool:

That's what this thread is for: http://www.head-fi.org/t/561434/asian-music-chinese-japanese-korean

Just like we should post pen discussions in pen-fi, computer discussions in PC-fi, moe discussions in moe-fi, video game discussions in the various video game threads, and vocaloid songs in the vocaloid thread. But we don't. :D


Whoa, I think I had a dream within a dream last night...

Drink some and listen to some Mahler No.6... :tongue_smile:

 

Big red flags already if you're describing it smooth as silk, a good single malt should be anything but smooth IMO. 

 

I think it's kind of like when people start out in audio, they want super duper bass. Comparing it to whiskey, I know when I first started drinking I thought that smoother was better too, but I have become more experienced since then.

 

But just like anything else, it all comes down to personal taste. ;)

Basically, we plug some holes with blu-tak to get a proper seal.

 

Notice how if you lift off the SR-202's earpads sliiiightly to break the seal, the bass goes all boomy? Pretty much the same thing happens all the time with an unmodded 007A, I'm not sure why Stax made it that way.

Are you still looking for an upgrade or are you happy with the GR07 for now?

What did he like about them, pls, for my sanity.... :P

I'm going to keep my 07's and try out as many phones as I can. The only way I'll go full on purchase on anything from now on is if I can describe it as simply amazing. I'm looking at trying out Focal Spirit One Pros just to once again see if I like a headphone tyll rated well(didn't like momentum's, found them too mellow). I'm then looking to demo JH Audio Roxanne's to get a good idea of just how high the bar is. I'm going to be recieving some Ety's also to try out thanks to some very lovely people. I'll keep a eye out for demoing k3003's and ie800's also ect....

I really don't want to stop my headphone journey @ the ASG "fiasco" but if the ASG 2's actually turn out to represent the difference I will see with high end gear... The GR07's will be very lonely for a very long time.

They need to deliver me some ultra HD rainbows and unicorns!

Yeah, definitely. Why the heck would STAX make the bass boomier like that?
And have you noticed how Stat bass sounds different than any other kind of bass?

Nah, you can get more out of them. Start out with $450 and go from there.

I meant the imagine dragons album you wrote about panda.

I was wondering if you are referring to the same thing I'm hearing when you said "sonic shortcoming". The songs I downloaded from iTunes all sound bad(SQ wise). Was trying to see if it's only a iTunes issue or the audio engineer made a mistake.
post #105654 of 130055

havent heard the ASG 2 but havent heard things that bad about them.

Everyone is noting the sonic issues so I'm assumming and will say it is the studio's problem.

#FirstWorldProblems

 

My RAM and HDD cady will arrive tomorrow, one business day after I ordered it. But my SSD will arrive this time next week

 

While at the same time, hundreds of million of people on Earth right now don't have clean water, are dying from preventable diseases, and require non-profit organizations to send medicine by plane which take weeks. All while I'm pissed I have to wait one more week for an SSD I got on sale with free shipping. Of which cost me the amount of money in USD that I could have spent to directly save the lives of possibly 50 people or so with penicillin or other low-cost extremely potent medicine of the modern century.

 

Oh, and I'm mining dogecoins while some can only hunt wild dogs for food.

Let's hope that Africa will have the same problems as you have right now in twenty or thirty years.

Africa in 20-30 years will have to wait 7 days for an SSD?

 

That would be a piss poor future, if they had to pay what I had to pay 30 years prior for an SSD with technology from 30 years ago. That would be a pretty schitty future to say the least. But I guess this future does imply that their logistical capabilities are past the point of bublegum and paperclips as they are now.
