I know many Head-Fiers don't like Facebook, but this posts gives a lot of detailed information about new revisions they have done :)  Also, they also include FR graphs too...  The spike was at 2k, not 1.2 :p

 

EDIT: the spike was at 1.2k on version 1.0.



These guys are amazing.

I will NEVER buy an ASUS product ever again.

Unfortunately that pretty much applies to some audio companies too.

 

Anyway, long story short:
Dale is providing a service at a very reasonable price.

Moan all you want I guess - to me it just shows the lack of appreciation & selfishness on your parts.

 

Anyway, I'll keep quiet before it gets me banned again wink.gif

Not sure what you're talking about. I have a gaming computer from Asus. 

 

I upgraded the graphics card, cpu, and fans. Then when I took it too far and modded (read: bricked) my bios, I was still able to get support from them. Of course I couldn't send it in for replacement because of all the modifications, but the tech guy walked me through steps to recover it.

 

I agree with you on the Dale part though.

You are completely right. If you actually read through the post on facebook, he says the upgrade may require for some the replacement of their shell or the transducer....doesn't sound like something cheap, yet he's providing this service at fairly low cost especially considering he's including shipping in that price. Sorry it doesn't work out for some, but it's an optional upgrade. Though if you're really unhappy about all the costs with shipping, wait a few months, maybe it might be worth it if you want to upgrade to the ASG-2's whenever those come out. Then the costs might be more understandable/reasonable.

Not trying to piss anyone off, but it's not like revisions 1.1 of the ASG-1 are defective or anything. They sound how they were designed. I know many people still have their ZO2.1's and even have bought another ZO2 so they have the 2.3 revision as well, even though I'm pretty sure they could've just sent it in to be replaced. When you buy a product and it doesn't deliver what it says it will, that's a problem, but people here bought the ASG-1's, knowing (at least it was well documented on their website) that they were meant for musicians mainly

You're welcome. As Dale says to many of his customers, "Welcome to the Aurisonics family" so you gotta stick up for a brother every once in a while. Besides, I don't think you have any fear of being banned again for that comment you made. It seems a bit ridiculous how mad people get, yes it sucks, but they are a small company, and at least in the region they are in, they are doing their best to make everything as best they can.

Released on Facebook by Aurisonics on April 17th, 2012 (EST-zone)

Aurisonics, Inc. has released a revision to the ASG-1 series Generic Fit Digital-Hybrid In-Ear Monitors. As of today all new ASG-1 units will be shipped with revision 1.2. With this revision we have modified the internal porting which enhances the low mid and sub low frequencies. A different type of rear speaker anti- resonance material has been added which tones the mid frequencies down a bit as well as smoothes the high frequency response a bit more in the 6-15k range. A minimal filter has been added to the nozzle to reduce mid frequencies a bit further and smoothes the overall tonal response. The result is a more refined sound signature for a wider range of use.

Prior to making a decision to release the revision we tested with many of our music professionals to ensure the change was not going to have an adverse effect on that market for us. We additionally tested filter combinations with many in the head-fi community to get a consensus on filtering. The end result is only about 1/3 of the filter material many have tried is installed in the nozzle. Revision 1.2 addresses what has been referred to as "shouty" as well as other areas to give a smoother response without losing the detailed mids that make the ASG-1 a clear choice for music professionals. As always we recommend you EQ to taste as they take EQ very well. Additionally, a right ear red and left ear blue dot has been added to the body to avoid confusion for proper ear installation.

Many people are very happy with the ASG-1 the way it is. The installed update is available for those who have previously purchased the ASG-1 and would like the update. The modification is, however, invasive to the unit and may require us to replace the body of the monitor and/or the transducer. Thus any burn-in may be lost. This revision cannot be reversed to a previous version.

The cost for the update is $20 US which includes US mail service back to you in the continental United States. International shipping is not covered in this update fee and will be charged at the quoted rate for international shipping back to you via USPS international priority mail. If you wish to have your set of ASG-1 updated please contact us at in-ear@aurisonics.com for details on how to send them in and for payment information.

Just gotta love Dale and the Aurisonics' team. They are listening to their old and new customer base and really doing what it takes to make most (if not all) happy and have the most enjoyable listening experience. I applaud this company. beerchug.gif

I've been busy doing some of my journalistic endeavors, but I have been keeping tabs on the thread. I will have some newer and fresher impressions on Aurisonics' products in the near future.

post #2652 of 2761

I'm excited to try these out. It would be nice to have a removable filter, but $20 for what they're doing is a fantastic price. I just love A/Bing things which is why a filter would have been fun :)

For people thinking of sending in their ASG-1's that might want to get the aesthetic options Dale has hinted at are coming in the future, we should find out if they are user-upgraded or done by Aurisonics so you know if you're gonna send it in already, that you dont send it in twice.

Been busy away myself too.

 

Great to see Aurisonics continuing to dedicate themselves to their customers.

"enhances the low mid and sub low frequencies" - Verrry nice.

 

 

 

Although the rev 1.2 graph looks enticing against rev 1.0 I'm going to hold back till ASG2 upgrade is available. Way too much bother shipping back from UK.

 

Its also apparent from the graph that the highs are slightly further subdued with rev1.2 & unfortunately this is an area of ASG1's I already find lacking.

 

I'm hoping the additional driver of the ASG2 will be used to inject some sparkle in the highs. Sparkly detailed, shrill free, silky smooth &  fatigue free highs are what i'm wishing for.  If the high end is addressed like the mids these will become even more special to a wider audience.

 

At the moment Trance/Electro/EDM is a complete no go with ASG1 so I resort to EPH100's. This is my music of choice for daily jogs/workout session & it just can't inject that needed adrenaline driving sparkle to the music however much EQU'ing I do. 

 

I can't wait for more ASG2 news.
