As requested, here's a comparison between the Future Sonics Atrios (mg7 variant) and the ASG-1. The Atrios were reviewed with small stock FS double flanges while I kept switching between medium Sony hybrids, small Monster foam supertips and medium UE single flanges on the ASG-1 (I still haven't figured out my preferred tips on the ASG-1, but for the purposes of this review, the differences between these two IEM's are the same regardless of which of these three tips I have in play). At the time of writing, the Atrios are well broken in and have over 100 hours on them while the ASG-1's have approximately 35 hours of play time. Check my last.fm profile (in my sig) if you want to know what type of stuff I listen to. Listening was performed off my Galaxy S II, unamped. Lastly, I know this may come as a massive shock, but I didn't use any sort of equalizer on either IEM *waves white flag*
MANY thanks for your time.
I think I'll go ahead and order them...I agree with your points on the MG7's, all of them.
As you said, the main problem is the soundstage - and no matter what tips I use, it won't change. I wondered to myself if I drilled a hole or somehow modded it, it would open up...but I'm too unskilled to do that.
Now I j=need to find how to order them....by that I mean, i got the price, the shipping quotes....but could someone please inform me about customs duty/fees?
I rather take the extra shipping charge and get it straight sent to me, under my name for the warranty - but I don't want to be charged at customs.
If someone could enlighten me about the customs fees/charges etc, it would be really appreciated!
Thanks for the review. I had the MG7s for awhile and have to say my sonic memory greatly deviates from what you are describing. While I know that sonic memory doesnt count for much, I am very surprised to hear you comparing the MG7 treble to the ASG1. I find the ASG's to have much better treble extension than the Atrios. Particularly when it comes to cymbals. Again, I will say I am going off of memory here, which I dont normally like to do, but your description of the atrio treble is so much different than I remember. While it was good, I dont think it has the clarity nor the quality of the Aurisonics. Also, as a complete package, again, I have to say the atrios dont quite measure up, especially in build quality. Yes the bass has slightly less quantity, but the quality, in my opinion is just as good as the atrios.
I can't comment on the ASG-1's....well not yet, but the MG7's do have a nice treble, a little laid back that said, I pushed some EQ through them with a nice bump for the mids and highs, and they sound terrific.
Really REALLY beautiful - I'm tempted to send u my pair if I order them lol
