The ASG-1 is equal to my 1964-Q custom (to my ears). The RE262 is a great IEM and close, but not quite there. But let me stress, we all hear differently. This is strictly my opinion. I think the RE262 and ASG-1 are apples and oranges. The RE262 would probably suit the audiophile more. Now, until I hear this filter being developed I don't know how much it will change the ASG-1 to an audiophile type of IEM. The ASG-1 is a great stage monitor with a wonderful sound...

They have a wider bore, so I'm missing nothing. They blend in so well that I told my fellow student workers they were full customs. I'm going to hell...

Wow. looks very sleek! I went through pretty much all my tips and couldn't find one pair that gave me perfect seal so I just had to order the Comply TX-400.

I got 4 pairs of those tips left if anyone is interested. wink.gif

By memory I'd say that the ASG-1 has both more quantity and quality. The detail and texture at the bottom end is, to my ears, incredible. I loved the RE-262s mids - which are much more lush, liquid and musical than the ASG-1s - but was left wanting in terms of bass.

 

Coming from the RE-262 you may find the ASG-1 dry, and monitor like. It's much more listenable once the 1khz - 1.4khz peak is tamed, but even then I still wouldn't describe it as musical, as I would the RE-262. For me the EQG-1 is a very intense, and exciting listening experience, but quite far removed from the relaxed elegance of the RE-262. Others may perceive / experience it differently of course.

I also tried these tips & found they lacked bass & detail compared to UE tips. Silicon is little too thin. If you haven't tried the UE's do so.

They also look sweet with the ASG-1.

Has anyone else picked up the big dip at 14khz highs or it is just my ears/setup ?

Correcting this by around +6* along with -3 1Khz mids really makes them more balanced to my ears.

Trance became a lot more enjoyable after this correction. I'm still making adjustments to EQU to find ideal compromise for all genre.

* Last night i was having to use +10 & after leaving the phones overnight playing trance tracks with 5-20khz maxed out on EQU I'm finding +6 is now enough.

-10db is monumental dip! I detect a lack of sparkle, and bump 14khz up by just one 1-2db. Other than that, I'm not detecting anything severe, though I agree that the high end takes a back seat to the mids, even after a decrease of -4db at 1khz - 1.4khz (wide).

 

I too couldn't get along with those long MEElecs - they're too long and narrow for my canals. The MEElec double flange were much better (see below), but still didn't compare to the UE, or Comply. I've sent Eke2K6 the latter 2, so look forward to his impressions.

Nulliverse It's probably my ears or the not quite perfect seating i'm getting.

 

As of now i'm finding at least +6 @ 14khz to create similar presence as AKG studio monitors - my reference sound.

Increasing the 7khz area has helped little to inject sparkle in trance tracks. Listening to 'Time (Orkidea's Dream mix)' the sparks sound that you get at 5:00 really become tingly & sharp.

I will slowly try to bring the curve down on the 5-20khz EQU. but trance has definitely become more alive & enjoyable to my ears. I need to get round to listening to rock & soul collection & see if the same EQU settings will be acceptable than i'm done. 

 

I'm loving the ASG-1's more than ever today. Looks like my ear/phone burn has reached a good point.

 

Here is a  what works for me on x1060 with all extras off:
