Good to hear, I used play counter strike:source and maybe I will give it a shot again.

I suggest going on a PC/Mac, downloading Clementine and giving it a test with the EQ as you can get instant feedback which makes it really easy to A/B before and after. Before the ASG-1's sounded really veiled and radio-like, there was minor distortion caused by the mids boost sometimes, the EQ fixed all that. It even widened the soundstage a bit. It was a night and day difference for me.

 

It was funny cuz once I forgot to turn the EQ off and when I listened to them I was thinking WTF IT'S SOOO CLEAR NOW!

I believe I posted it 2 posts or so ago but the one I use is the full bass + treble one, it gives a nice U shape EQ 

 

Anyone notice the soundstage widening up a lot after they EQ'ed the ASG-1's?

While this is indeed true, I think he meant he tried to EQ using the "EQU" app which is supposed to be quite good, not using the stock iPhone EQ settings.

Cheap feeling and a poor fit compared to your $1000 Miracles?

How dare these $200 IEMs being subpar to $1000 ones.  I feel ripped off even though I paid $800+ less.

as for price range on both ends of the spectrum, i would take an ER-4 or IE8 over the ASG-1 ANYDAY of the week. For being in the same price brackets the ASG underperforms

Yeh I was using EQu app which is a lot better than the default settings! But still didn't go down well..... It's fully customisable and stuff but it still just didn't do it for me

Apple does something weird with their EQs for the iPhone (iOS 3+).  Instead of increasing the volume for a certain frequency, they will decrease it so the zero line is still the max of any given frequency range. 

 

So lets say you had a 3 band EQ (for example) that was set up like this:

  • Bass: +5 dB
  • Mids: +0 dB
  • Highs: +4 dB

Apple's version of the EQ (on iPods and iPhones) would actually be this one:

  • Bass: +0 dB
  • Mids: -5 dB
  • Highs: -1 dB

 

It still creates the same curve (you can push the volume up 5 dB to fix this given EQ), but lowers volume instead of increasing it.  That's what my ears hear anyways.
