LOL, it still looks nice nonetheless.  I'm too scared to color mine, I don't want to mess up...  And I don't have nail polish :p

post #1683 of 2761

its actually easier than it looks, seriously. All you have to do is blob it on and wipe off the excess, you don't even need a thin paint brush to apply it. Took less than 5 mins.

LOL, I'll do it if I ever find any nail polish...  :p

Yeah, it's actually pretty easy to do. I'm thinking of getting some masking tape, taping off the faceplate and spraypainting the body white so I'll have some black and white panda ASG-1s :D

Yours already look awesome lol. Don't make the rest of us feel any worse =P

My gf is going to come home one day and see me applying nail polish to something obscured from view and we're gonna have a nice long talk.

Maybe this might catch on as a new DIY thing.

post #1687 of 2761

Don't the faceplates screw on (that's how they look)?  Maybe Aurisonics should sell faceplates that are detachable :p 

post #1688 of 2761

Hey folks, we just properly launched the Aurisonics ASG-1 over in Singapore with a little listening party and video conference with Dale. Good fun was had by all, and it was really wonderful to have Dale brave the time difference and chat with us. Some quick notes from our chat with Dale:

 

Sound Signature

The Aurisonics line is definitely built for musicians first, and Aurisonics have determined that for stage monitoring, a musician's IEM will need a different signature from what audiophiles are used to. Because of this unique signature, the Aurisonics IEMs are gaining traction with a wide range of working musicians over in the States!

 

"Audiophile" Filter

Dale confirmed that Aurisonics are working on a filter that will tame the midrange of the ASG-1. This filter will likely be worked into a special tip, so that it can be user-changeable. Great news for musos who like using their IEMs for casual listening. There's no ETA on the filter, but Dale promises that they are devoting a good amount of time and effort to make this happen.

 

The "2" Series

The dual-driver version of the AS / ASG is in currently being field tested and tweaked. It was originally developed for musicians, and particularly vocalists who preferred a bit more high end response in their IEMs. Dale stressed that the dual-driver version is not "better" than the single-driver model, just different. It should not be considered an "upgrade" but a modification. 

 

On Modularity

On that note, Dale mentioned that the Aurisonics line was built to be modular and easily modifiable. So if current users want to modify their 1-series models to the dual-driver model, they don't have to go out and buy a whole new unit, they can just send in their current models for the mod.

 

Bringin' the Bling!

Additionally, Dale noted that a whole slew of premium aesthetic customisations will be available for high-end users who would require that. For example, if Lady Gaga needed sparkle pink gold covers on her AS-1, they would be able to do that. Dale shared a few screenshots of some possibilities for faceplates and even entire units - unfortunately we were not at liberty to reproduce those images. Most memorable were Dale's own ultra-bling'd out gold-plated customs. Sure pays to be your own boss!

 

(note: Lady Gaga is NOT a client of Aurisonics. Her name just came up as an example of an artist who might need very extreme aesthetic customisations of the sort which Aurisonics would be able to provide in the future. also, confidential client information redacted from original post - my apologies to all, and I do hope you can redact that client's name from your posts if possible.)

 

Price-Performance Efficiencies

Dale was very clear about one point - he was extremely interested in putting top-tier audio technology into an affordable package. He asserted that his product brought double the performance for half the price (my paraphrase, cannot remember the exact phrase Dale used but it was to that effect). 

 

 

One personal note from this entire session was just how passionate Dale was about his product, and how excited he was about the next stage of development for his product line. It was really a great gesture for him to speak to us about his product, and it just shows how Dale's passion for serving the needs of his customers, not just pushing out technologically advanced products. I take it as a good sign for great things to come for Aurisonics.

 

Ok, to round off this post - here's some pictures from our meet up!

 

In case anyone had any doubt as to why we were meeting.

In case there was any doubt as to what we were gathering for that day.

 

A quick view of the stash. We had some Fiio amps and ICs for sale too.

A quick peek at our stash of ASG-1s. We had some Fiio amps and ICs on sale that day too.

 

Shootout in progress!

Shooting out in progress...

 

More shooting out...

More shooting out. As an interesting aside, we noted that this was also the largest gathering of Atrios users in a single place - almost everyone in this photo has an FS Atrio! We did note that the ASG-1 and Atrios were entirely different beasts altogether. 

 

We had members of the an up-and-coming local band Sixx in attendance as well. Very privileged to have them join us for our little launch.

Dale, looming over us like Big Brother... ;p

And here's Dale, looking all big brother-like. ;)

I don't want to take the faceplate off for fear of the fact that the drivers might get unsettled and I won't be able to restore them to their proper location. Before I painted them, I was considering coloring the logos blue and red, and ordering some carbon fiber vinyl to cut to size over the faceplate, but after receiving the phones, realized that would be incredibly difficult since the faceplate is curved and textured, so the paint was plan B. I'll probably head out to Home Depot tomorrow and pick up some glossy white Krylon spraypaint to experiment with spray control before actually spraying the phones. I'll post pics of the end result

Landing a client like Gaga would be huge. Best of luck to Dale and co. but they are coming up across stiff competition against the likes of Future Sonics, I think practically everyone in the entire industry uses the MG6Pro 

post #1695 of 2761

Is there a reason why so many in the industry use a DD custom as opposed to many of the BA customs out there?
