post #2296 of 2761

I have three of the Aurisonics otterboxes on my desk (two are mine, one is a friend's).  Dunno why, but one is easy to open while the other two are more difficult.  Just because yours is easy to get open doesn't mean that the next guy's is too.

 

Funny video though!

I have 3 otterboxes around as well. (2 of the model that Aurisonics uses). While they're certainly tough to open it's nowhere near as hard as many make it out to be, if you just open it with the right technique. I've never had any trouble dealing with otterboxes, even with my freakishly small hands.

LOL, that is an idea.  I think it has to do with how you hold the box when opening it.  If I squeeze at the wrong place (even half an inch lower), I can make the box difficult to open.  If you use the technique though, it'll become easier to open.  The idea is to just get a good leverage on it.  It'll snap right open :)

LOL, freakishly small hands...  I'm with you there, my hands are small as well :(

Hehe. um the otter boxes from Aurisonics are hit or miss. My first one was relatively easy to open but this current one is posing a huge problem even for me. I'm pretty damn confident in my strength as I've been powerlifting for the past 3 years and for some reason, it just refuses to open unless I use my whole body. I guess the pain usually comes when it finally does snap open and my fingers just jam into the side of the casing. Going to sit this under the TV for a few days and see if that helps to reduce the spring force of the box.

Only one's obviously had at least 300 hrs' burn-in.

Here's a better description of what I do instead of being a "donkey" and just having a blank face :p

You have to literally clamp the otterbox with your fingers and muscles in the palm of your hand (under the thumb).

biggrin.gif in another 300 it'll open itself if one just looks at it with intent.

I should be getting my AS-1b's soon. I wanna write a review, but I don't know what I should use as testing materials. Any suggestions on songs and stuff tht are good to tell tonality and characteristics of IEMs?

 

All suggestions are welcome

I actually don't have a set of songs that I use.  I put my iPod on shuffle, and listen.  If any problems arise, I note them (EG, any harshness in highs, not enough lows, etc).  If anything makes me go wow, I note those too.  Additionally I listen for a set of properties (texture, detail, separation, impact, sparkle, etc) as I do this as well and note them.  I do this for a few hours minimum (for really good IEMs, like these, I normally do it for 12+ hours on and off to ensure).  I then write my audio section based on that info.

 

This is the way I see it, readers of the review will not listen to just the 6 songs you have listed, they'll listen to their entire collection, why base a review off of 6 songs?  Instead, I'd rather base it on the collection as a whole.

I was more looking for a set of songs to use to see how the burn in develops the sound that every once in a while I would take a listen to to have a good reference

Hi Again..

 

What you said here pretty much nailed it for me and I am ready to order the VSONIC GR07's I just wanted to ask one more time. Is there anything better in this price range for the style of music I play (link below). Basically I will be performing acoustic nylon guitar to backing tracks. The guitar will have a stereo pair of very high end condensers directly on it. I will not be moving around. I will bleed both (backing tracks) and guitar through the IEM's.

 

Is the VSONIC GR07's "The One" as far as that "woody smooth punchy tone"? Thank you so very much again!!
