Apparently the ASG-1 doesn't agree with you. I felt the exact same way when I first heard the TF10 (although I now think my first one was defective because I like my second one a lot better - with a different cable on it), and I feel that way about the DBA-02 (I really like nothing about it). So stuff happens. Happy selling...
Interesting. It's possible I have a defective pair, but I spoke with another head-fier who had his ASG's replaced because of this treble deficiency and the second pair exhibited the same problems.
How do you compare the ASG's to the FXT90 and GR07 then? A comparison like this should shine some light on whether our ASG's are actually different (which I assume they must be considering our impressions). How about on a treble emphasis scale of 1 to 10, 10 being the most treble. Here's how I hear it:
Basically I think even the GR07 has a lot more high end than the ASG's. If your impressions are at all like this scale then we are probably just hearing them differently. But if not, I'll send mine back and report here.
