Itching...I'm really torn between these and the SM2. Can you make any comparison eric?

Same foam as the other Comply tips......theory is, they seal without the deep insertion of other Comply tips, so, as you can see the tip stays open, causing no change in sound while in your ears.  They do not resonate like silicone, and that is why they sound more natural, more like a live performance.

 

Now my secret to good sound is out!

Those look like the complys tips that are included with the UE700.  I recall them being firmer over the Shure olive foams.

My SM2 is stored away. Will take some time to dig them out. If I'm going to be honest and by memory right now, I don't thing the SM2 can compete with these. These are pretty damn good. I really didn't expect this to be this good out of the box at this level. I have my SM2 modded now with some lightly dense foam to really bring it even more bass impact, so it's a bassy BA IEM. I think these would be better, but it's at your risk since I can't guarantee these fit your ears (it should). I'm like 98 percent positive the SM2 will fit just about anyone's ears.

The ASG-1 is still not working out for you, alphaphoenix?

They are firm until used, they need to be compressed (rolled) before insertion.....body warmth softens them causing them to expand and seal....not at all like the Shure Foams, that kill sound!

Cute and his Comply tips!! Geez!! LOL.. By the way, the iPod Nano and the ASG-1 are perfect together!! Oh the details!! Mids are fantastic!!

I've used these with the X1060 and I never went above 20. They do benefit from amplification but their baseline performance without one is already very good.

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 ?

 

 


Anyway, nice to see that others are enjoying the ASG-1. I really miss them. Looking forward to seeing how customizable the AS-1b are in sound.

With the stock tips, no, but I decided to give the custom tips a try.  I'm waiting on the impression kit and it will probably be at least week or two before I get them.   In the mean time, I've been burning them in, so by the time I get the custom tips, the ASG-1 should have close to 200-300 hours of burn in time.  Maybe I should have given the GR07 this burn in time, but after about 50 hrs of burn in on them, the sound, though technically high, sounded too sterile for me to listen on long sessions.  I think I'll try to track down some UE large tips as I've had good results with them.

I understand alphaphoenix. I just think the ASG-1 struck a "sweet spot" in my ears. I get it and I really enjoy the monitor-like detailed sound signature of IEMs such as the ASG-1. I can't see myself stopping here with this Aurisonics' product. I think I will follow suit and get custom tips too. And eventually venture into my second full custom IEM (yes, I'm pretty sure it will be this company). I have my BA custom already from 1964 EARS, and I've always felt that I wanted my second custom to be a dynamic IEM. So I think I am striking gold here. We'll see. Baby steps with the tips first. Happy listening!! beerchug.gif

Same here ericp10.  I think Aurisonics has something special here.  I'm with you on my next custom being a dynamic.  I've been on/off the fence with the FS mg6pro for quite some time after reading impressions from Kunlun and the closest I've gotten are my mg7 with custom sleeves.  The only issue I have with them is when I listen to trance music or albums that have heavy bass for every song, it does get kind of fatiguing after a short while.  The AS-1B incorporates game changing features for a good price. I'm eager to read about other member's impressions.

 

Like you, I played it safe with the universal, and now with the custom tips on the way, I'm pretty certain it'll be my main listening IEM, and after tax season, I'll for sure be rewarding myself with a CIEM. In the meantime, since I don't have any tips that fit, I'm in the process of tracking down some tips and see how much changes with burn in and how well it sounds with my sources and amplification, and possibly swapping out the stock cable with a silver one.

Sounds close to the GR07, but improved. How would you compare the two? what about when it comes to sub and mid bass? thanks.

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!!!

I wonder how often the screws can be turned in one direction then the other, then again, then again ... until they get loose.

X2 alphaphoenix.. These are something else indeed.
