Yup I already thought of it, just after I bought them...

More of an impulse buy.

 

I'm liking the MG7's and wouldn't be surprised if the MDT's are more for me.

I'll see :)

It will take 3 months to fully burn them in.

On another idea, my review will be posted today at 2 PM (Pacific Time) or 4 PM (Central).  I'll post a link when I get home tomorrow night :)

On the subject of EQU'ing as whole i have my opinions.

 

In the world of Hi-Fi where you buying individual components that cost 100's to 1000's pounds each I believe there is no need for EQU'ing. As the individual component from the source to the power cable to the interconnects can be individually hand picked to build a system that is tuned for the purpose built in mind.

 

With my relatively short experience with phones i don't feel the same EQU'ing rule applies. Unless you are 100% convinced your file encoding & your source PMP or PC is delivering reference quality sound to your ears EQU'ing will be required to fine tune & achieve the preferred audiophile signature. With ear phones its a different ball game & EQU'ing should not be seen as some kind of blasphemy.  

 

*edit*

 

With my EPH-100 which are fairly flat & neutral sounding i made minimal changes to add emphasis to the low & high ends.

 

ASG-1 on the other hand have had a LOT done to them to get them sounding as i would prefer. This should be expected if anyone wants to use these phones for non Stage Monitor use. Without EQU'ing they are completely unbearable to my ears - too 'shouty', resonating with a box like sound,   & little lacking detail in highs (sparkle). I can't imagine anyone being able to use them for audiophile listening on daily basis without any EQU.

 

Once EQU'ed the Aurisonics become transformed into a different beast altogether - superb. The only thing that comes good with them out of the box is the sumptuous Bass.

3 months doesnt mean 24 hrs non stop bro. But I am told by the shop and FS that within 3 months it will settle down (burn in). This is dealing with the MG6Pro my Atrios did not take long to burn in.

I demo that big fat Sony headphone. Bass was very nice and it sounded nice all around but I will add the MG6Pro has more sub-bass but I do like the ease of slipping the headphone on my head.

If only $700 $900 (sorry 0.0) came my way...lol

I would never consider buying something so expensive...

ANYWAY!

Rather not derail - as i usually tend to do :P

It's amazing what burn-in does to this phone!

post #2005 of 2761


I'll let the filters do the EQ'ing thank you. It's highly dependent on the circumstances but there is a chance that I'll be able to do an A/B of filtered vs nonfiltered ASG-1 and AS-1b. But until those arrive I will occupy myself with Sennheiser demo units :D

Subscribed. From the reading I've been doing on these recently, I think I want to get a pair. I love the idea of the massive 15mm driver in an almost custom shell. Plus you can tip-roll to further improve fit. Having customs currently, I find them more finicky than universal fit IEM's, and am beginning to think they're not the holy grail they're built up to be. Perhaps this is the way to go! 

 

Will continue reading in the meantime....

I hope you enjoy reading, cause this thread is like some kind of evil monster, constantly growing and consuming every innocent head-fi'er that crosses its path...

Yes, it most certainly takes some effort, and also strategic searching 'within thread'....
