I know what they are mate. You don't need to to defend Aurisonics.

 

It's good to know Dale reads these forums himself.

 

 

If anyone has any further information on how the dual drivers will be tuned i would appreciate it very much.

 

I would guess the smaller driver would be used to concentrate on the highs which would be very nice.

This is from Dale in an email:

Also, our AS-2 which is a dual dynamic 10mm mid/tweeter and 15mm Low driver is going to set the new bar for Custom IEM performance.

I was actually complementing the driver that Aurisonics have created. I believe it has plenty of potential to be tuned differently & lend to other markets as well as stage monitoring e.g. studio monitors or high end audiophile market. Throw in the dual driver for further potential.

 


Fair enough. Except for some Beats, the $299 is part of my point.

Did they really create the driver?
If thats true it's very interesting. Maybe the high end is the drivers inherent limitation. I have no idea really. I really like the driver too.

Ask Aurisonics which earphones they also own themselves. The you try both and see.

Even after 100 hours of burn-in , and despite the great bass, clear mids and nice treble, I still have to EQ the higher mids down a lot (-2 to -4dB) to avoid ringing in my eardrums with female voices. So trust me, I'm gonna appreciate the gesture.

I just hope this won't make the excellent forward imaging disappear completely, because this is something very unique to ASG-1s, which makes me keep them beside my SE535Ltd (for the amazing mids).

This makes more sense. But in a calm environment, this is very fatiguing. wink.gif
 

 

Anyway, my only advice for buyers would be: don't listen to ASG-1 AT ALL before you have burned them for at least 100 hours. The change in bass and mids is quite dramatic (for the best) and this is no brain burn-in, the 15mm driver really needs it, it's probably a bit stiff when it's brand new

Yeh if your gonna take what you here early on and want to sell because of the burn in lack that some people are the this what is needed. Personally i thought going through with the burn in was quite and experience hearing it developed every time i woke up.

 

I think people are making quick assumptions. I am not saying no people can like them and i no its a sound sig you either love or hate but i think people are jumping to conclusions.

If they decide to go with the version of the filters I received, bolded text above will not be a problem. The imaging on the other hand takes a hit, as does clarity, but resolution is somehow still very much there but requires a bump in volume level. Sadly, I feel they lose what makes them unique, but the general population will probably be very happy. I'm still burning them in though.

Pre-installed.

Apparently, people who got them before me seem to have gotten different versions of the filters (different material or density) which from reading their impressions made me think something along the lines of: if their filters were one notch of change from unfiltered, then mine are two notches.

 

It's funny because ever since I started listening to my filtered ones, which have a very pleasant and almost completely fatigue free sound, I wish the filtering was about half as strong lol. But things are still changing so we'll see. I'll most likely remove the filters eventually and post comparison impressions.

I have the prototype filters en route who are self installed but minus the housing that the final ones will most likely have! Maybe these are gonna be on your terms 1.5 not h so maybe getting more of medium!

Interesting that hardly anybody has mentioned the 16mm Sony driver on the EX1000 needs burn-in at all. The EX1000 thread was started 13 months ago and is 173 pages long.

 

Even if what you said was true --and you'll excuse for being very sceptical about such claims-- I'd still strongly encourage people to listen to their sets right from the start, so that at least they can tell whether burn-in is real, or at least real to their ears. In my experience, what people call burn-in isn't really so but something else, but I DO NOT want start a debate on whether burn-in is real or not.

Maybe Sony burned them all in biggrin.gif

 

Man, I really want to hear that EX1000... great now you've depressed me.

BTW, I added another paragraph to my previous post (probably while you were replying to my post).
