Also, I would give the ASG-1's some burn in time since it is a dynamic driver. These ASG-1's have a larger sound bore than most and thus do not need to fit deep inside the ear canal like some other in-ears to get a solid seal.  The driver is purposely positioned to push sound directly into the ear canal.

 

When I demoed these a few months back, I listened on a FiiO e11 headphone amp (I would highly recommend using a good amp) and used a slight amount of EQ to taste as these are meant to be mostly flat... using some EQ is where you will really see these shine because of the detail the driver is capable of... the flat nature make them great for musicians, sound engineers, and monitoring... Just some tips to keep in mind!

 



 


With no return policy, most other IEM's give thirty days for problem like fit, you will need to be sure before your purchase!

It really forces you to pay attention, so I can imagine it being a little fatiguing to listen for long periods depending on your personal tolerance.

SpringMatt says they are 'Flat' which is the what i would prefer & earlier impressions from DTKZ indicated they are very forward which i definitely would find fatiguing & not my cup of tea.

 

Can both be correct as I'm under the impression being 'Flat' means on the laid back side as opposed to forward ?

 

Also has anyone driven these successfully without AMP ? iPhone ?

 

I would be looking to use these with none external amped Sony X1060.

 

I prefer full cans for AMP'd home listening from PC & need IEM's as pick up & go for gym/jogging/shopping  etc 

 

I know its early & impressions are limited but can anyone comment on its separation ability possibly in contrast to UM3X/SE535 Red SE/EPH100

 

Excited.

Good luck man.  Perhaps if you can track down tips from the Monster Trumpets, things may sound for the better.  From my brief ownership (did not work with my BlackBerry and Samsung smartphones), I recall the opening of the tips being pretty wide, but about the same length as the standard super tips.

 With the lack of impressions from those that already have these.....It doen't appear that they impress!

Mine should be here Mon or Tues.  On hand I have IE8 and TF10 for comparison sake, anything else would be from memory which I would take with a grain of salt.

 

My hope is that if I can confirm I prefer their sound signature, worse case would be to order their custom tips if there are fit issues.  Not that I want to throw money at a problem but I never liked the short nozzle of the IE8s and custom silicon molds made a world of difference (until they shrank).

Mine should be here Monday or Tuesday as well....I just expected more feedback, as I know others ordered several days before me.  When I talked to Matt I expressed concern about the short nozzle as well.  I just returned the Westone W4R this past week for the same short nozzle couln't get a good seal, other than standard Comply, that didn't help the sound at all.  The tip that gave me the best seal on the W4R was the Phonak large silicone.....but I noticed resonance with that tip, as I prefer Ts Comply tips that don't alter the sound and don't resonate like silicone tips.  I will see for myself early this week....but I am nervous about them, and the return policy is not like other IEM's!

Sounds like you want hype and not real reviews.

 

Real reviews will come, including mine. Hype I could care less about.

Have you ever tried the Ts Comply.....the largest are M, but because they are short and fat, they don't need deep insertion.  They were the only Comply that worked on the W4R when I had them.  They are my goto tips for RE272, TF 10 and Brainwavz M4...IMO the sound with the Ts tips is very natural, nothing lost, and the highs are not attenuated or changed.  For me the Ts tips sound is compared to my Home Theater/Stereo system with acoustical treatments to silicone tips without acoustical treatments.  I went to a lot of trouble to get good sound in my listening room, and A/B ing speakers to IEM's with Ts tips mirrors that sound very closely.  The Ts give me good tone, timbre, texture for a very natural real sound experience with the above IEM's.

I don't go for FOTM hype either!  I don't fall into that trap.  I need to listen for myself....but so far I am nervous on these...I will give myself a listen in the next two days.  I just don't like a no return policy like these!
