But you could then do the long awaited DFs vs Aurisonics Filter ;)

I have one original pair and one version 1.2 right now. I believe that the frequency response is quite reliable. The bass does increase. "Shouty" is not that noticeable (personally, no more "shouty" sound) and mid is smooth.

Totally Dubbed: thanks for the bass comparisons.

I see you gave the "X10 = 1/10"

Is that a typo? The Klipsch X10 right? I pretty much agree on 7/10 for EX700 but I had them both and would give the X10 8/10.

Not a typo - i would the X10 to be VERY tiny & tinny

I'm glad they've done so much work to improve on rev1.1 ASG-1, nice dedication. wink.gif

 

But (there's always a but), the revision seems not to be DIY and there's one sentence which puzzles me a bit: "Many people are very happy with the ASG-1 the way it is."

 

To me, it sounds like an excuse not to handle revision for free (excl shipping to Aurisonics). Honestly, I'm not joking when I say most people here have found ASG-1 shouty. Burn-in did help, but didn't eliminate the issue, and by issue I mean not normal behavior.

 

The fee would be almost ok in you're in the US (20$ is very reasonable and includes shipping back), but borderline thievery for people outside the US.

We're talking 20$ plus 52.40$ for USPS shipping, plus the cost for shipping to the US (35$ for me), exploding the 100$ bar, only to fix shouty IEMs and to get the crappiest postal service ever with USPS (2-3 weeks for priority pricing, anyone ?).

Again, how complicated is it to use REAL transporters like UPS / DHL / Fedex ? I do this everyday to send samples. They're faster, cheaper for international, and deal with customs swiftly (no blocking for 1 week, they handle taxes in the place of customs).

 

I hope Aurisonics doesn't have any plan to officially sell worldwide, because they're not doing themselves a favor by handling the first few international customers like this (probably less than 10).

I'm not asking everything for free, but I don't think offering the update for 20$ incl shipping for a few international customers who got revision 1.1 is going to endanger their business. wink.gif

 

I'm going to have a calm chat with Springtree and Aurisonics to see what they think about his.

It should be free and I think they can use regular mail.

were you quoted that shipping charge?
Or estimating it?

 

Also that's why they need an EU distributor, that wil handle all these things.

The company is in it's "early" audiophile stages tienbasse, give them some slack bro.

 

Also, I would suggest, if the shipping costs are too high (which fi that's what you said they are, then I agree are too high) to get in communication from someone in the USA, and go via them.

 

I don't own the ASG-1's any more, but I really, and truly appreciated how this company is heading, and treating it's customers.

Find me sennheiser, AKG, denon, as a matter of fact, name me 1 or 2 companies where you are talking DIRECTLY to the CEO? 

 

Only other experience I have had was with the director of TFTA - great man to chat with.

Dale is similar, and in fact is trying his best to make it please us head-fiers/audiophiles.

I don't think 20 dollars is a big deal at all for what they are doing! You also can not moan at them for the international posting because they never directly sold them out of the US as they are waiting for a distributor and we all got gem second hand so they are not prepared to deal with us yet!

and did any of them actually listen, make changes, send review samples, and speak to you at 3am?

I've certainly spoken to MarkL, but it's not like his going to do anything about his products (not that they need changing, just giving u an example - FYI: Mark is a nice guy!)

Yes, actually.

 

I don't doubt the guy who runs Aurisonics is very dedicated. However he's not alone: there are other small companies in this hobby run by dedicated people.

Maybe Totally Dubbed made his point in a little bit of an assertive manner, but if you have ever talked to Dale, it truly is a pleasure. I live in the same time zone as Tennessee and am always amazed at how no matter what hour it is, if I sent an email in the last day, i'll wake up to a response. This coming from a college student who stays up till 2-3 AM every night looking at audio gear I probably won't ever buy...

Keep in mind: after your company is a certain size, it takes a lot of resources to change your product after it's in production
