hi, i also came across the Aurisonics website and noted their 15mm dynamic custom in-ear monitor.  and, i couldn't find anybody reviewing them.
I just got the Future Sonics mg6pro, so I'm not thinking about getting Aurisonics, but it'd be great to see someone compare the two.  the mg6pro has 13mm drivers, so the aurisonics has the edge regarding size, but there's much more to the ultimate sound than size of driver.

Never heard of them but just checked out their website. Look like a pretty new company. 

 

The AS1-b has a 15mm driver and adjustable bass tuning, sounds interesting. It's cheaper than other other dynamic CIEMs like the WXi9 and mg6pro too.

I'll be reviewing the AS-1.

looks interesting. I need a set of ear plugs for work, so I might try them out for that and the bluetooth attachment for my jawbone.

Have you already ordered these? Could you also provide an update on how their customer service is?

Indeed. But it's interesting to see how BA-based CIEMs compete for numbers and MC-based CIEMs for size.

I've also got an order in for the AS1-b, which is the version with a tunable ambient port and separate tunable bass port. 

 

I received my impression kit earlier this week, and have already made impressions and mailed them back. Aurisonics should receive them next week, which means hopefully I'll get the finished product 2-3 weeks after that. 

 

Customer service has been excellent. I've been speaking with Dale Lott, president/CEO of Aurisonics. He is very helpful and seems to know his stuff when it comes to IEMs. The product is somewhat unique so I'm very eager to hear it. Dale mentioned that they are becoming a sponsor here at HeadFi in the near future. 

 

I've got a fun project planned for this review: a pair of the ASG-1 universal fit IEMs, to be sent around for others on the forum to hear. I'll start the proper thread about it when the time is right - first need to hear them and determine how close they sound to the custom version.

These look very interesting indeed with the 15mm driver, but hopefully their not just bass monsters with no top end.  After some reviews come in I think this would be a good option for me because of the price and since I'll be re-shelling my TF10's I can have a BA along with a dynamic.  Looks like my IEM buying days might soon be over for awhile once I get some customs wink_face.gif

"a while" = how many days? tongue.gif

I'm sure I could go a month maybe 2.

 

Also those ASG-1 generic fit look part custom and part universal.  They say it fits 90% of people and call it "one-size fits most", I hate to buy a pair and be in that 10% bracket.  It also has the same driver and specs as the custom and its $100 cheaper.  I might go out on a limb and get those, it seems like a cool concept along with saving me some much need money.

Even if it really fits 90% of people, it won't fit them as well as an actual CIEM. Why don't you wait? Both Kunlun and project86, two reliable Head-Fiers, are going to review the AS-1 for us. Plus, project86 will be able to compare the AS-1b and the ASG-1, and even mentioned the possibility to make the latter circulate among us! Well, among you Americans, at least. International shipping costs make other options less than practical.
