Aurisonics Impressions and Reviews - Page 86  

post #1276 of 2761

I got my replacement set a few days ago. The first set had some major driver flex and caused the left driver to fail. The replacement has no driver flex at all. From what Dale told me, they got the acoustic impedance through the vent port matched to the driver diaphragm so there should be little to no flex.

 

I'm trying to get used to the sound but the mids are still a little too much for me. It's fine with some songs but not so much with others.

No, the idea as I understand it is that the sound is fine for stage musicians now. However, for audiophiles, an optional add-on filter (and more eartips) may be available. That's certainly not the final word on the matter, just a note on how things are developing. I'm looking forward to how it all works out.

I posted in my initial impression that I tried some open cell foam in the sound bore and it did help mellow them out and tame the shoutyness , just not enough for me. It would be great if they make a filter to tailor the sound, or even better a tuned musical version.

That would be nice, but also very frustrating for those of us to whom the original ASG-1 was advertised.

 

Maybe this is something that could be fixable when upgrading to the ASG-2? Fingers crossed :)

I don't think they were "advertised" as anything different then they are, stage monitors. I knew that going in and my only disappointment is I personally don't like the sound of monitors. My home system uses electrostatic speakers so I'm much more fond of musical speakers and headphones.

Oh I'm not saying they were misadvertised as they are, they were certainly presented as stage monitors. But it would be disappointing if Aurisonics advertised a stage monitor to audiophiles right they were to release a more audiophile-friendly phone.

 

That said, we were privy to a very nice discount, and if the ASG-1 are upgradable to the audiophile version for a reasonable price, I will have nothing to complain about.

Aurisonics didn't advertise it towards audiophiles, or the general public for that matter.  It's just that a head-fier found out about them, and this thread grew like wild-fire.  It'd look worse if Aurisonics denied service to audiophiles.  I can't wait to try the ASG-1 (if I ever get too :))

Looking through this thread, I understand how these earphones work, and hopefully I can try it out when I get the chance. Thanks for the reply btw kunlun. I am a bit afraid that these aurisonics will be shouty, I already have a headphone that does that, zx700. I would love to hear the nice timbre, guitar plucking, strong bass, and lucious vocals however, I just hope it isn't too much in your face, I would not like that.

You describe the Phonak PFE232 pretty nicely here... Too bad they are 2-3 times the price...

So I got a reply from Dale regarding the filter and below is his reply.

 

"Yes the filter is to tame the mids a bit. Much better for listening to music for people who experience what I see referred to as being "shouty". We are working on best way to produce the filters and make available as an option which can be added to existing ASG-1. I had about 10 people yesterday at a couple stops I made listen to both the ASG-1 filtered and non filtered. It was about half and half. Musicians tended to lean towards the normal ASG-1 and iPod music listeners liked the filtered version much better. I believe the filter will be an answer to most people who just want to listen to music on them."

 

It looks like it will solve the "shouty" issue for those interested. I'll be looking into getting one for sure.

How can you not love this company?
post #1287 of 2761

In fact they do everything for us. I wish they had a seller in EU.

post #1288 of 2761

Ah I see. This all makes more sense now :)

 

I am a very suspicious consumer, being a salesperson myself :p but I am very quickly becoming an Aurisonics fan.
