Fixed. Almost forgot about them, but I don't think Dale mentioned it on the post way back then

Want a smoothen the sound off the ASG-1s then try this out! If you have a resistor (such as ER4P to ER4S adapter or Shure or UE airplane attenuator) put your ASG-1s into it and give it a bit of juice from any amp you may have laying around, anything from cMoy, mini 3 or O2 and enjoy!

My ASG-1s have been shipped, and are coming here! :) Very much thanks to the Aurisonics family.
I can't wait to hear them. I've been looking for better clarity, leaner and more engaging sound than my warm, smooth and thick IE80s.

did you get the rev1.2's? I really hope so! The rev1.1 is slightly screechy and shouty mids with piercing highs.

This thread comes off as a cautionary tale. It makes me wonder if these guys actually listened to these IEMs before sending them out.

what are you trying to imply? Listens to rev1.1 before they send them in for a rev1.2 upgrade?

The abundance of Aurisonics on the sales forum (yours included) speaks to the quality of these IEMs. IMO, it speaks poorly of a company to need to revise a product weeks after launch, as well as charge for the fix. I also find it dubious to tell clients to use an EQ. 

 

I am referring to the company, not the end-users.

Nonono. Like any headphone the ASGs have a particular sound sig. Just happens to be rather extreme which might offend more than others. As someone who sold their ASG-1, though I could not come to terms with the mid-hump, everything else about them I adored and now some what wish I could have another listen.

As for Aurisonics revising/fixing the ASG? Not so much fixing as altering the sig to one more appealing to audiophiles (who were not the original target demographic).

Imply? I thought I was pretty clear. The abundance of Aurisonics on the sales forum (yours included) speaks to the quality of these IEMs. IMO, it speaks poorly of a company to need to revise a product weeks after launch, as well as charge for the fix.

Yes, particular is right. I am indebted to HF and this thread or I might have bought one off the sales forum.

after burn in the sound mellowed big time.  I know of MANY companies that revise their iems.  Including vsonic, etymotic, etc.  Dale just revised it based on people's main pet peaves. The iem will now appeal to absolutely everyone.  I can't wait to get mine back.

Keep in mind you we're not the original target audience of the product. If it wasn't designed for you obviously you will find some flaws. If the product is being revised to help fit the tastes of a secondary market (audiophiles) then you should appreciate how quick it has taken Dale to acknowledge, redesign and release the new revision.

Yesh, literally hours of R&D. I am not the target audience of my new MG6Pros, but they sound phenomenal with everything I throw at them.
