post #2506 of 2761

blink.gif ... finished the thread...

 

I've read numerous times that the MG7 has more bass quantity and the ASG-1 has more quality. I also get the impression that the MG7 goes deeper - is that right?

 

I'd like to know how the IEMs compare when the sub-bass is EQ'd. For e.g. do they both scale up equally well? Does the ASG-1 quantity become comparable to the MG7?

 

thanks.

Atrios MG7 has the SUB bass even without EQing. If the track has bass the MG7 will provide it for you and if you EQ it will not only make you hear the bass but you will feel the bass.

ASGs do sub-bass well which of course means you can feel the bass! However I have seen many people including Joker call the mg7s the sub bass kings! As for mid bass it as actually elsewhere you'd want to go for quantity but the ASGs mid bass quality/detail is extremely good! Apart from bass what else do you want as if you want soundstage then you've got to either look ASG or IE8 (ASG wins soundstage, ie8 mid bass quantity as well as can be increased). Forward mids ASG, relaxed IE8, ASG has better treble than IE8 but both are poor and if you care for treble I've heard mg7 does well!

Check out a few review I've don't bothe IE8 and ASG
Totally dubbed as done all three I mentioned and I'm sure would reccomend the MG7
Joker as reviewed ie8 and mg7 in hi mega conparison!

Nop - asg-1 does not have more quality, nor does the MG7's

They both have great bass response and quality.

 

Quantity wise:
Sub-bass, hands down to MG7's, there isn't even a competition here.

For mid-bass however, MG7's marginally win (but not by much)

 

So:
MG7's go deeper, and little harder

 

To give you a comparison, of how the asg-1 needs to compete with mg7 sub-bass:
ZO2 on orange/red to get to the level of the mg7's on greenish yellow.

 

That said when the asg-1's are on that contour level, the mid-bass is very strong - too much for any of you non-basshead lovers.

 

Long story short:
ASG-1's are capable of giving you that bass, if you want - especially if u want to amp/eq it to give u more bass, but as default/no eq etc, the mg7's will be better for bass.

Thanks to everyone for their fantastic responses. Appreciate the time and thought you put into your responses. basshead.gif biggrin.gif

 

I have a much better picture of how they compare now. I adore sub-bass, but I think I the compromise is worth it considering the other things the ASG-1 does right!

 

I know it can be hard to put on a scale, but how would you all rate the sub-bass of the MG7 out of 10 and the ASG-1 out of 10?

MG7:
10/10

 

Thus why (i think the name has caught on now) I call them "the sub-bass kings"

 

ASG-1:

7/10

 

MDT:

8/10

 

Choose some more earphones from the list I've heard, and I can give u more ratings if u want.

I hope this slightly off topic question is OK.

 

Totally Dubbed: I've read only a little bit about this amp. When using the ASG-1 do you find the ZO2 is a lot different to EQ? Could you rate how good sound is out of 10 with the amp and out of 10 for EQ? 

How does it specifically change the bass? The website says "... ZO changes the game by delivering mind-blowing sound with up to 3x more bass intensity at lower sub-bass frequencies (down to 30Hz)." Can anyone clarify this? I don't know how to interpret this, I was thinking it either adds resistance to bring out the bass in certain players, or acts like a hardware EQ.

 

thanks!

Well - I'll probably get told off for being off-topic - but as this relates to the ASG-1....

 

Well the ZO2 is a basshead amp really.

If you don't want bass in your amp, then the ZO2 isn't really for you.

That said, it's not only an amp - if anything it's not really an AMPLIFIER life the E11 is.

It adds a nice "fullness" to the SQ.

 

Doesn't touch EQ - well unless you add the bass contours, then I guess it's shifting up the low section frequency of a graph.

 

So for your rating question of EQ - it doesn't apply.

For SQ...well that's really subjective here.

Some people say it "makes their sound muddy", others like me see the fullness of the sound it brings.

Some people prefer instead the E11 - which is nice a "clean/lean"

 

I've rated the ZO2 better than the E11 and A10.

 

 

Bass wise....I mean - literally take the ASG-1's for example - to really bassheavy earphones - or the D2K's which don't have a punch.

With the ZO2 - I can turn the ASG-1's into bass demons - and the D2K's literally from being calm and collected to vibrating on my head.

That's how good of a bass booster it is - it's VERY VERY impressive how a small thing like this can do this - it's literally mind blowing.

So in essence it acts like a DIGITAL EQ, but doesn't compromise the other frequencies.

Thanks for that Totally Dubbed!

 

It saddened me to see the ASG-1 only get a 7... I was hoping for an 8 at least... But remembering that it EQ's well puts a smile on my face as that should bring it up! bigsmile_face.gif

 

Since you generously offered more ratings I can't resist! smile.gif What would you rate the Denon ah-c710, MG5, & EX700 out of 10? I gave up the great Klipsch X10 sub-bass because I thought the EX700 was a better phone overall. I don't see it in your equipment list, but if you have heard the DDM could you rate it please?

 

thank you!

Bass only (incl mid and sub): *before i incl only sub-bass*

MG5? Don't have = I have have Mg7's = 9/10

MDT = 9/10

C710: 8/10

EX700 = 7/10

ASG-1 = 7/10

X10 = 1/10

 

List can be found on my profile...and in my sig...common lol

First of all, i'm out of it and hella tired. Road works with night shifts don't mix, only had 2 hours sleep.

 

 

Second,

Is it ok for the top to sit on the ears?

 

I'm having trouble with getting bass. Maybe i'm having vacuum trouble, not sure... I am getting a really good seal with my m6 tips, maybe too good? When i eq the bass or use the e5, i get some, but it's ever so slight, hardly any impact.

 

I am going to give it a chance, let them burn in some more. Will have a good 10 hours with it later at work so maybe i'll warm to them, who knows.

Now there is something wrong with the seal if you are not getting bass and although though you feel a vacuam you could possible be mistaken. Although bass increases with burn in there is already a good amount and you should be both hearing it and feeling it. 

 

About it sitting out your ear i do not know what you mean but when putting them in try and roll them into your ear canal! They should fit nice and snug in your ear and because of this it could be preventing a seal and the bass. Hope it all works out for you!

 

Maybe a picture of how they sit in your ears could help?

Fully agree, even though I have not heard the ASG I tend to value your opinions ( most of the time).Quote:

FYI:
Teg has my pair of the ASG-1's

 

Teg, try playing with some tips - bass gets better with a deep - good seal
