The Carbo bass and most likely a remade Radius TWF12K that has been made recently! http://www.amazon.co.jp/%E3%83%A9%E3%83%87%E3%82%A3%E3%82%A6%E3%82%B9-%E3%83%80%E3%82%A4%E3%83%8A%E3%83%9F%E3%83%83%E3%82%AF%E5%AF%86%E9%96%89%E5%9E%8B%E3%82%AB%E3%83%8A%E3%83%AB%E3%82%A4%E3%83%A4%E3%83%9B%E3%83%B3-radius-HP-TWF12-HP-TWF12K/dp/B00AXHALPO they look awesome, but cheaply built though. The TWF11K had mixed reviews, but hopefully the TWF12K would be a revision of the 11, even though the 21 was the actual revised 11. I feel like taking a risk on these, and mochill's discovery. Most of my dollars will have to be acquainted with my Japanese friends whether they like it or not : (.

^ never did any re-cables my self so i wouldn't know but some guy from the MH1C thread was able to do it with a detachable cable and that was his 1st time me thinks. His cable was already pre-made and it only cost him like $20 something.

Hope you didn't pay more than $20. haha They were ok, but a lot of the new stuff that is out is much better than the Tt for about the same price. Hell i even like the monoprice iems over them. LoL

1 Last question.  Do they sound as "3D" as the FXZ's?  I'm one of the ppl who felt that those didn't sound like IEM's.  They sounded (to me) like they were nearly full sized cans.  Do the V2 come close to that presentation?

But has anyone actually heard of Coolcore? Sounds ultra-cheapo, I'd like to know some background.

Sure, many customs are considerably more, but, once your up in this rarified range, is the sq of the ASG-2 close enough to customs to make it worth while? Seems your on the way, may as well save some pennies and go for it, already, but if they're really close to the $1000 or so babies, maybe not.

 

 

I will have too get into this deeper later, but yes, this $600 IEM sounds just as good as any top tier universals and some top tier customs. Of course some would argue that a custom is best since it's designed to the specific shape of your ear inside and out. But the ASG-2 comes so close to the average shape of the ear in the way it was designed, and the best thing about the ASG-2 is that as a universal it is way easier to sell (can't do that this with this custom version if I didn't like the signature), and it's it's built to be upgradable fairly easy. That makes the ASG-2 quite worth it in my book. Of course, it sounds fantastic to my ears.

Hmmm....the problem with this stuff, of course, is that you can't audition it generally before springing for it (would have loved to make the NY area meet, family obligations prevented me from going). Resell is an option, of course, though I tend to just collect draws of stuff rather than do the posting/selling. The ability to resell is an advantage over custome, sure, makes me think about it. To some extent, the headphones in the "affordable" category (now, with some budget "giant killers" out there, seems to be about $20-$150, maybe $200, though that starts to be a bit of a stretch), you start to deal with "flavors", personal preferences...to be continued...

....Back... Hate it when life intrudes on audio,, :'(. Anyway, a lot of change in this range, assuming you're dealing with something good, comes down to flavors, personal taste. It's fun to try this stuff out, but sometimes I feel like it's like trying to recreate your first kiss. It's hard to get the feeling back the same way. I feel like sometimes the only way to get really make a difference may be to really move to another level hardware.

I just have to say that the asg-2 is mostly for musicians, not for everyone.  It wasn't really fun sounding to me.  Kinda dry compared to the sony xba 40 (I'm not trying to convince anyone to buy the 40's because I know there are better things for the price out there.  But I only mention it because it's the only iems I have to compare to anything atm.).  The way people described the asg-2 almost made me buy them, but after getting to try them out for 30-45 minutes I decided to look elsewhere and didn't think twice about it.  The signature definitely isn't for me.

True, and no IEM is for everyone. The best way to know if an IEM is for you is to listen to it if you have the chance. The W4 was a dry IEM, and I loved it! I wouldn't call the ASG-2 dry at all, but everyone hears differently. I have the XBA-4, and while it's okay, it's not a "realistic" sound IEM to my ears (I don't know how much difference there is from the XBA-4 and XBA-40 though). So my point is that when one person says they love or hate an IEM it doesn't mean you will feel the same way about that IEM. People thought I would hate the W4 because I was more of a basshead (not totally) compared to the neutral leaning tuning of the Westone. Well that W4 ended up being one of my favorites and I kept it for awhile.

I know manufacturers like to reuse stuff they have a stock pile of.. These simply sound too good and also kinda sounds familiar to me. They don't sound like the CKS earphones.. These sound like CKM earphones. CKM500 to be exact. Similar in tonality. Hmmm.. Could these be CKM500s in disguise?

 

All AT's latest NA releases share an 8.5mm driver CKL, CKP, CLR, COR. Quite a few of the Japanese models as well. Just been replaced with the new 8mm driver in the latest CK323M/S. They are most likely tuned the same way based on how they describe them both. Just like the MH1 and the HPM78 are both hard to drive and both tuned to nearly the same sig but one is a 9.2mm and the MH1 is a 5.7mm.

Google?

Never heard of them myself before but nothing wrong with trying new company's products.

Look at T-Peos, they were hidden to us before the H100 was released last year. Then everything just exploded.

Wow, that's sounding better and better. Looks like they will most definitely be my next IEM purchase.

My guess from your report that they will sound better for trance than Carbo Basso or Carbo Tenore.

I guess I'll be trying them out then.  The guy has a return policy so I guess I can just send them back if I don't like them.

I have just ordered refurbished PR401 for 11.30$ with code LMUECUST from lendmeyourears. For that price I think is a no brainer, the regular price is around 75$. They also have GR07 MK1 for 75$ and I'll probably jump on that too. biggrin.gif
