Wow at the acoustic guitar bridge of this song through the CKR9 (with JVC FXD80 large tips)... Stunning!

Yes, the FXD80 tips are just as great on the CKR9 as the Spiral Dots, but gives a more microscopic view of the music from this great earphone.

I have received my asg2.5s. I had a pair of asg2 with a crack in the shell. They wete bought used, but Andy from Aurisonics worked with me and made repairs for $150. Not only repaired, but upgraded to the 2 5's. I cant comment in depth on sound yet as I have not listened much yet, but brief impressions are vastly improvement to the sub bass. Same great quality too. Sounds as if mid bass has great impact, but not as much in quanity. To put #s to it if asg2 had sub bass of 2 and mid bass of 8, the new ones are close to 5+5, or a 50/50% split of sub to mid bass. And something else I cant finger yet, but it just sounds more refined. The clarity as improved, most likely due to reduction of mid bass. Other improvements are the cable, not that I had issue with the other cable. Also the tips included seem almost gel like. Now if owning asg2 im not sure the changes warrent buying asg2.5, but if they do offer upgrade program id jump all over it. Pics and more to come later

Forget about the bass what about those rolled off treble/ highs. THAT and sub bass depth/ quantity is what the ASG 2s needs improvements in BAD esp. or the price that they are asking. The Sony XBA-H3s is already on par sonically with those ASG2 with better sub bass and treble, but just lack the hi-def resolution of the mids on the ASG2s which is their bread and butter.

 

It sounds promising though but nothing really ground breaking from ASG as always. : P

I havent really had much time with them yet, but I didnt have big problem with the treble on the asg2. My biggest gripe was the sub bass and I feel that was vastly improved

Okay, I'm going to fight my urge to hype the CKR9 with FXD80 tips. Nope, not going to do it...

 

 

*shaking*

I can see it now...

 

Best Dynamic IEMs (SQ-only): CKR9 (with FXD80 tips) > CKR9 = FX850 = XBA-H3 >Cardas EM5813 = Aurisonics AS-2 (hybrid)

 

BTW, out of curiosity, is the CKR9 made in China or Japan or somewhere else? The HA-FX650/750/850 and ATH-IM01/02 are made in China while the ATH-IM03/04 are made in Japan.

I think the CKR9 is made in China, but I got a replacement from Japan, and I couldn't find China on the replacement packaging (which is full retail packaging).

My friend has literally shorted out cables on all of his IEMs. So he's looking for a pair around $100 that has detachable cables. Any suggestions?
