It might not be the most analytical, but is very good: Hisoundaudio Crystal.

Isolation and fit are great. My left earpiece broke after a few months and I got a new one within a week.

They did change the width of the tube where you slide the tips over. It's thinner now, tips are unchanged so this means tips will stick in your ear sometimes when you want to take them out.

Bass is very tight, never overpowering. Mids, treble, soundstage, imaging and details are all good to very good. Nothing is just even mediocre.

I use tips I got with my Vsonic and they stay on. No need for an amp either.

The most treble happy IEM  have is the Brainwavz B2 (same as Audio Fischer DBA-02 v1) but the piece where the tips slide on are so thin I can't find tips that give my a permanent seal. I'm not able to wear them when on the move. It's a delicate matter to get a good seal/fit with them for me. But those IEMs are the most analytical I have heard. They still give you good tight bass.

I think everyone was at least a little scared of what to expect.

I wouldn't say everyone, just many were.  If you look at the statistics, about a quarter of people who have them on Head-Fi love them, half are EQing them to death, the other quarter really just hate them to death :p

I don't hate them to death, or hate them at all - just weren't for me, taste and sound sig

I guess you prefer an overall bass-centric signature with clean mids and highs...

that's something else jerem :)

 

Although yes I prefer that sig, the ASG-1's had a good kick...but I have no idea how to explain it...they just sounded different.

And that "different" will make or break it for people.

 

EQ or not is again something else, and doesn't really matter if you can't get along with the "different" sound of the ASG-1's

 

Well anyway for me, it wasn't the sound, although that did play a 20% factor in my decision to sell them.

For me it was fit/comfort which made me put them down.

I've never, ever had fit issues with any universals.

Of course some are more annoying that others, but never have I had pain inflicted on my ear, due to wearing earphones.

ASG-1's were the first, and hopefully last.

I guess universal fits on customs isn't a good implementation, since they wouldn't fit as well. But something like the UM3x and FitEar TOGO MH334 has a changed shell to provide better fit.

well it's a great idea - especially for isolation.

But it's very hard, as I've done some design - tech back at school - to adopt a product for everyone.

 

I remember reading a female user on head-fi having problems as they were too big for her.

They weren't too big for me (if you saw my pictures of my impressions), however caused me discomfort.

 

That's why other companies, have chosen to go via the universal route, as it generally fits - can't speak about the TF10's though :P

True, but custom demo sets never really fitted my ears well. Well, it's because universal IEMs are more consumer suited and companies can mass produce it, therefore less problems will be created. The TF10 is meant to be a universal version of the UE10pro, the fit is a little awkward and not so good, however.
