As a Lyr owner, I am trying once again to keep my expectations at a realistic level. (I failed with the M&M)
For my ears Asgard2 won't be a Lyr equal. Personal Bias and everything else that goes along with it. Perhaps I'll be surprised.
That said, the niche that I think Asgard2 will fill for me is the gain switch for IEM's. That opens up a brand new segment for me, as I've only owned Apple buds.
I know nothing about IEM's other than a recommendation of the Vsonic GR07.
