I will be getting both my W4R and 232s back from repairs soon :)  I may also be getting the ASG-1s as well, so if I do, these comparisons will be done for sure.

That would be great. Thanks people!

 

P.S. are you guys on the 1st-half-of-March batch?

I have no clue right now.  I've been trying to get a review sample, and it does look like I am getting it.  However, nothing has been confirmed 100%.  I'll post pics when I get them though :)

Bass: Yes, Eric is saying this>>>> the ASG-1 (a universal no less) obliterates the 1964-Q's bass. You all know I LOVE the 1964-Q's bass, but truth is truth. The bass of the ASG-1 extends much further than the 1964-Q (which I thought was deep as hell); it's a weightier bass; a more natural bass; a taller bass; and a more layered bass. And the bass is not muddy; the ASG-1 bass has nice clarity.

 

Mids: Torn on the mids. The 1964-Q's mid has more transparency (which is generally the nature of great BA drivers) and a tad bit more clarity, but the ASG-1 clarity is there too with - again - more weight and much more realistic and natural sounding timbre. I've always thought the 1964-Q had a timbre very close to a dynamic to be four BAs. Both IEMs are pushing out massive amounts of micro-details, but the ASG-1 just has depth in the stroking and caressing of the piano keys, kick drums and reverb of the snare and tom tom drums that's not there in the 1964-Q (well, it's there but it's nowhere near as heavy or realistic).

 

Treble: I think the 1964-Q's treble has a bit more shimmer and sparkle although more smoothed out more than the ASG-1's treble. Kind of hard for me to explain this one without you being able to listen too. The highs in the ASG-1, however, are more natural sounding. They just sound different but neither are too harsh (as it suppose to be in-ear monitors). It's a tie, I like them both (I make no bones about me being more of a bass and mids listener than highs. I hear the highs and they sound realistic and nice to my ears in both IEMs, but the nod to realistic sound goes more toward the Aurisonics).

 

Vocals - If you're listening to vocals from an analytical bent, the 1964-Q wins. If you want to hear vocals in a more natural space - but detailed - you will be happier with the ASG-1. 

 

Guitars: The Attack of the electric guitars with accuracy, transparency and clarity is something to hear in the 1964-Q. But again, the weight of the strings, the realness and 3-D-ish sound of the electric (and acoustic) guitars falls squarely on the shoulders of the ASG-1.

 

Soundstage: The 1964-Q wins if you want a wider soundstage, but the ASG-1 wins in height, weight, density, instrument separation, timbre, and natural realistic sound.

 

Verdict: Let me first say (because I know the naysayers are coming) that I discovered the Aurisonics ASG-1 like most of you on this thread did: saw the thread; had never heard of this company or its products; asked a friend who had a pair what retailer he went through, and took my hard earned cash and gambled on them - not knowing what to expect - and bought them. 

 

So my verdict is that overall the ASG-1 universal beats my much loved 1964-Q overall (slightly), and obliterates it in the bass, timbre and natural sound of music (weight, echo, reverb, thickness, density, etc). Yes, I have found a universal - finally - that I think sounds better than a custom. To be fair, however, we do have to admit that the ASG-1 is a custom made into a universal.

 

Oh, 320kbps "Queen's Greatest Hits" played flat out of a fourth generation iPod Nano was used for this A/Bing session. I didn't want to do it through amps, although I know my Fiio E10/E9 DAC/amps does wonders for both of these great IEMs... Happy listening!! beerchug.gif

Wow! - what a comparison - cheers Eric!

I did contact Matt about having a trial for a pair - I don't think he wanted to.

Even though I have...well quite a lot of places it would go.

 

When I send my "I want to review things" email, it does sound pretty cool when I can say:

I got only....2.4million views on youtube..but no biggie tongue.gif

Maybe a better question to ask is... Where did Aurisonics come from?!! A month ago I was blissfully listening to my FS Atrios, thinking I'd be grabbing a pair of FS customs some day... next thing I know I've got an ASG-1 AND a AS-1b on order.

oh head-fi we love you.

 

post #1093 of 2761

This thread needs to calm down.

 

In any case, I'm still awaiting mine to arrive.

 

Probably would be the first pair in Australia.

 

I'll compare them side by side with my favourite GR07, but will look at my listening notes that I've compiled over the years versus some mid to top tier IEMs.
