Eric how would you compare the midrange and bass of the ASG-1 to that of the SE215 in terms of lushness, quantity, and impact?

Sorry, I know that's kind of specific and subjective tongue.gif Any input would he welcome; I'm trying to figure whether the ASG-1 or SM2 is going to give me the really full mids and punchy but extended bass I'm looking for.

Really full mids + punchy extended bass = ASG-1
post #288 of 2761

Ericp10....Just trying the Sennheiser double flange tips.......compared to the Ts500 Comply tips........the Senn DF tips sound much warmer, less detailed in the mids and highs are more attenuated with less detail than the Ts500's, someone liking more bass would like the Senn DF, but I am hearing more detail throughout with the Ts500 comply.  The Senn DF on my gears do not sound quite as real/natural as the Ts500......mids are slightly more forward on the Comply Ts500 as well!

 

The Senn DF would suit me as an alternative, if I didn't have the Ts Comply Tips!

Sorry Gilly87, I can't really give anymore specific answers about the 215, IE8/IE7 because it's been a long time since I've owned either. So the little that I've stated here is based on memory... Sorry my friend...

Yeah cute? I don't know what the Ts500 or Ts400 look like. I just have Comply tips but I don't know what models they are. But I generally don't like Comply tips. They seem to take away something in the details in my ears. Actually, I tried the Monster foam hybrids on these and the first time I felt they took away something form the sound signature. This IEM seems to work best with silicon tips. I have these large long single flange on the them now from MEEL 11. These really bring the bass and mids out. But the Senn seem to do it for me. I think I will give a Comply a test run, but generally don't like Comply buddy..

And to think, I don't own any IE series and yet I happen to have a full set of Senn double flanges. I think this might be a match made in heaven.

That is the typical answer I see......don't like Comply.....I felt the same way until I tried the Ts.....they are round and short, so they seal your ears with shallower insertion......and they don't kill any of the sound (they have a large inside diameter that prevents it), but they do kill the resonance of silicone tips!  Should try the Ts somtime.....the details are not taken away!  The only IEM's I have that shipped with Ts series are the BA200, and I prefer TF 10 medium silicone tips on them....LOL!

Eric if I was to get these they need to be pick up & go IEM's so I do not want to AMP them but run straight off X1060 (non capped).

 

How well did the S545 cope in driving these 32ohm phones ? Did you have to max out the volume if not how far were you from doing so ?

 

 

 

* I also have the MEEL long single flange & full set of IE7 tips sitting doing nothing..

Well guess what cute: I started looking at my stash of tips and I've found some quite long Comply tips with a wide center. I have no idea where these Complys come from, but since I generally don't like Comply, they are look brand spanking new. But I have no idea, again, of the model number. These are quite long. Anyway, I have put them on the IEM and to my surprise they sound pretty damn good! It deepens the bass and make the strings just sound out of this world. It gives the ASG-1 a lot of refinement. I'm going to compare with the Senn, but this sound wonderful!! How long to Comply tips last on average? That's another reason I've probably haven't been too interested in them. I want tips that last a long time. But again, these do sound great, so I concede...lol

post #296 of 2761


Yes archy, I maxed out in volume - pretty much - with the S545. But I pretty much max out with any phone I own. I actually had to turn the volume down with the Black Crowes I was playing, but I'm sure I was between 26 to 28 out of 30. It could have played lower and still sounded fantastic however. I just like a tad more volume than low... I know I can't max out with the iPod Nano. I will try that now and get back to you.

So cute, I do agree with you that the Senn gives the ASG-1 even more bass, but I don't think it diminishes the quality of bass, and I think the treble sounds better with the Senn DF. The Comply is quite good - and is probably the best for someone who wants maximum isolation with these IEMs. But the Senn DF brings a more refined sound to the ASG-1 to my ears. I hear a sharper,  crisper and more refined sound with the Senn (with extra bass). You really can't go wrong either way, but my preference is the Senn DF tips sound....beerchug.gif

post #298 of 2761

If you get a great seal and the right tips on the ASG-1, these are some freakin' incredible sounding in-ear monitors (with fantastic bass and mids!!)... You really don't need to eq it with the proper seal. But these may not fit everyone's ears, I will allow. I guess I fit in that 90 percent. I really can't wait to hear what this reveals with 100 hours on it or better... The detail and is staggering for a dynamic. While a different sound signature than the EX1000, I think these are up there right next to it technically. The only thing I can think of that the EX1000 beats the ASG-1 in is space between instruments . But the Aurisonics goes toe to toe in clarity and transparency. It blows the 7550 and EX600 away in my assessment of it. I think lovers of the EX1000 might want a tad bit more highs, but it's just right to me. Vocals are very forward. This is what it is suppose to be, however, a universal dynamic monitor rather than a fun type earphone. So the sound may not be for everyone. It sounds like you you have high quality speakers literally sitting in your ears. And the comfort is far more better than the Sony dynamics to me too. I can't even begin to imagine what the dual driver one will sound like. I tip my hat to this "Made In America" IEM company. Well done at a great price!!!

For me, I don't let cost get in the way of better sound. I have been using these for nearly two months....Comply is located near St. Paul, MN, so I get them overnight!

 

They are more expensive, but it you don't take them on and off, they should last about three months.....and depending on ear wax. I don't have an ear wax problem at all, clean my ears a couple of times a week. I have been using all three pair nearly two months and they don't show a lot of wear.

Okay, well we all don't have it like you, my friend...lol. I can't afford a two to three month tips bill at their cost...lol. Now, I nver seen these Complys before. They look rounder than any Comply I've ever seen. Are they firmer like the Shure olives? Looks interesting...
