I used clear plastic cores removed from some old Etymotic's for the W4R and BA200, this built up the nozzle similar to the ASG-1!

 

 ER4-14F foam tip cores for mod!

I love them... Instead of selling these, I just took my money and invested in a pair of er4-s. So now I have two fantastic headphones:D

 

brilliant! Glad to hear it :)

Its the texture of the bass i've been dying for, which is a completely 100% realistic simple bass bunch.The mids... Well... I found them very harsh and very upfront at first.  The harshness is starting to die away a bit, and I felt like they stopped overpowering the highs at the end of my ride.  I actually feel like the mids are starting to become more lush than anything.  The highs are not sparkly by any means, but they aren't GOD AWFUL as some of you claim.  If anything, I feel like the mids overpower the highs and it just becomes a hot mess.  Although the highs are quite rolled over at times, I still feel like they are kept in a realistic proportion.  With the upcoming announcement of the filters that are supposed to douse the mids a bit.  I feel like if they sell the asg-1's stock with the filters, they will have one of the best IEM's out there.  Its their first product run...  There will be bugs as always.  In the future I'm sure they will address the whole accessories issue.  One thing Id like to see with these.  Is a totally new kind of foam(IE: Something like the shure olives.), and some appearance options, which I'm hoping by july I can add a backplate to it:D


Nice little review of them, can't wait to join the discussion in this respect

They will arrive soon young grasshopper!!!biggrin.gif. Thanks! I just did a little impressions note, Ill probably do a review when I have a little more time with em! I dont see why they acquire so many h4terz??? They are fantastic.

 

EDIT TO MY IMPRESSIONS: The soundstage is huge, the vocals are beautiful, but can be a bit shouty at times. The acoustics, namely instruments such as guitars are just fantastic. I love it...  The cable is perfect, non-microphonic, and its removable!  I also did my impressions completely un-eq'd

That made me lol.

 

I'm glad you like them! They're really something else right?

Awesomeness. I'll have to try to find a way to get the customs on if I decide to get them

My ASG1df (df=dogears filter biggrin.gif) has gone through 6x24=144hrs break|burn-in. I am really liking them with the filters on. The best tip that gives me the most balanced sound (i.e. lets me hear more treble) is still the UE white tips. Tried: orange foam tips from Shure(?), stock tips and Creative tips. I will listen to them without the filters on Thursday after going over 200hrs break-in period.

I am definitely keeping this pair.

teeheerolleyes.gif. I love them to death... they are perfect.

I'm still amazed that a thread can grow this fast.  SURPRISINGLY, there are very little reviews.  It's more that there's banter and back and forth chatter.

 

:3  This publicity is definitely great for Aurisonics though.

The love for the ASG-1s is coming. Ack all over again! Glad you like the deladood!

Glad to hear you're liking them.  And the highs are god awful, they are good, maybe great, but do need some work still (to my ears).  I like everything else.  With time, the IEMs will darken further as the midrange dies down and becomes more balanced. 

 

Hope you enjoyed your 28 mile bike ride in the 30mph wind gusts...  They almost blew me away today too :p

hha I did enjoy it! 1 hour and 20 minutes. I was booking it. Yeah, they are kind of making my ears sore. Will I get used to that eventually?

They did that to me too...  Your ears will get used to it though.  It may help if you follow what Dale said about inserting them, I found this helped the soreness a lot:

  • Pull top of ear up and out
  • Insert IEM twisting forward, then back to secure it.
  • Guide the memory wire right over the top of the ear and away from the head to keep the IEM in place.

These three helped relieve some of the discomfort, but it took me a week to fully adjust to them.

yeah I'm sure Ill get used to em.  So I finally get 2 amps.  A fiio e6 as my portable, and a little higher grade fiio e11 for the house.  Do you think this will help drive my ER4S and ASG-1 a bit better?

I haven't heard the ER4S, but I know they will drive it a lot better.  The Fiio E1 will also improve the midrange, and low end of the ASG-1, I'm sure the E6 will do about the same :)
