Ah yes. True problem there.

Explains a lot to me.

 

 

Let's all get back on topic please. No need for big writes when it does not concern ASG-1.

Or quoting only the people who happen to share their own particular views --or say they know someone who has that piece of gear-- yet conveniently ignore the valid contrasting views of other members.


We agree, but let's get back on topic.

Yeah. On a completely unrelated note, did I ever tell you about the set of Transmission Audio's Ultimate speakers in my living room? They're pretty neat.

I'd love to, but Kunlun has defiantly refused to construct a time machine to get his AS-1b sooner. Since he's such a fan of the mg6pro, the best-known dynamic CIEM, I'm curious to read his comparison.

 

Apparently, Aurisonics will come out with a dual-driver version, too. But doesn't that mean smaller drivers? And wasn't the first aspect of the AS-1b to get people interested the size of its driver, able to move more air?

At this point, I'm fairly convinced that this is the sound I've been searching for, with just one caveat, and that's that the mids are drier in character. I certainly appreciate that they are quite detailed, but the description of the mids as being drier than the RE262/SM3 worry me a bit, because I loved the lush characteristics of both the mids featured in both of those phones. I guess I'll just have to wait and see. 

This is my worry as well; I very much enjoy the lushness of my MS400 and SE215, but given everything the ASG-1 seems to offer, I am willing to risk it...

This is unacceptable behavior! H.G. Wells is rolling over in his grave...

 

DDM custom? Very cool... It might not necessarily mean smaller drivers, actually... these designs usually stack the tweeter on top of the woofer, so it probably won't need any more space. Perhaps the woofer won't be quite as large as 15mm, though. The Radii (both models, I think) had diaphragms of 7mm and 15mm; I'm testing out another dual dynamic right now, and it's 7mm and 14mm.

What model?

Er, I will reveal it when the time is right? Don't worry, it probably doesn't threaten the ASG-1...

 

PM/e-mail me if you want to listen.

I own the MS400 and I also love the sound of those. Bought into these and I'm glad i did. It's not as lush as the MS400's due to their more flat presentation but the sound stage is significantly wider and there is no clutter to the music. Its a completely different presentation from the intimate-ness of the MS-400. I'd say risk it :)

Yeah. subjectively based on this, I'm noticing a spike in the 1.5khz and 4 khz range. Anyone else finding this?

Also, I am getting a little bit of driver flex on the right side, which doesn't really bother me and only "very occasionally." But does anyone remember what the solution to this problem was?

post #508 of 2761

Yeah, I'm jumping as soon as I get my situation with PayPal sorted out; apparently someone tried to change the e-mail associated with my account...ph34r.gif what a mess. Luckily most of their customer service people whom I've dealt with have been very good.

Dale told me this a while ago, but now I've got confirmation that I'm allowed to post the info:

 

*The dual driver model that people have mentioned is to be called the AS-2. It uses a 15mm driver and a 10mm driver, both dynamic (obviously).

 

*Just like with the AS-1 series, there will be a "universal" ASG-2 to go along with the genuine custom AS-2.

 

*The customs will have way more appearance options than the current models - metal, wood, or other premium faceplates, that sort of thing. Dale says the AS-1 series is their way of doing quality assurance on the manufacturing process, which is why they kept it simple with just the frosted clear shell. 

 

*Dale did express concern about the time frame - he doesn't want HeadFiers impatiently holding out for the AS-2 models. Aurisonics is limiting the AS-2 to professional touring musicians for a while, in an effort to "field test" them, ensuring they have the same long-term performance as the AS-1. When pressed for public release dates, Dale mentioned May or June of this year, with the possibility of a debut at the InfoCOMM show in Vegas (mid June). I always just assume these types of things will take longer than anticipated, so I'd say the AS-2 series is a minimum of 4 months out, which could easily turn into 6 months or more. Meanwhile the AS-1 models are here right now, sounding great, and priced extremely competitively.

 

 

 

Unrelated to the AS-2, I'm still trying to nail down a good description of the sound for the AS-1b. The good news is that I'll be ready to send along the ASG-1 for people to try, maybe within the next week or two. I believe Average Joe will be first in line, but anyone else is welcome to be on the list (I haven't compiled anything official yet).
