If you have the ASG-1 and want the ASG-2 we have something quite epic for you coming so don't sell off your ASG-1 keep it and don't buy the ASG-2 on Friday. That is unless you want to have both...

 

Will this "something quite epic" be available to those who purchased their ASG-1s used?  I know there are a lot of well-loved second-hand ASG-1s around since the first few revisions were rather polarizing and most early adopter-abandoners passed along the original promotional pricing...

I think everyone should take that statement as it is. I would assume Aurisonics wouldn't make a blanket encompassing statement about ASG-1 owners if they were gonna exclude second hand owners. now those third handers....those guys are screwed.....(just kidding, had to have a little fun but seriously, a good many people around here have second hand ASG-1's I'm sur they arent gonna exclude the majority from something said to be "epic"

kenman345 is correct we will make sure we take care of everyone who owns an ASG-1 (Rev 1.0-1.2) with the program we are going to announce and it does not matter if you are the original owner or the fifth. Of course we will have some stipulations and this will not apply to any other product. Also, our rules moving forward for warranty repairs and any future upgrades will be different after this program so please take advantage of it when it is announced.

Talking with Dale the last couple of days.. it's definitely safe to say the AS-2 has gotten even better since I heard the prototype.

 

Is this in comparison to the Rev 1.0, 1.1, or 1.2?  I know I had the 1.0 or 1.1 for a little while and will agree it was mid-centric.  The 1.2 is far from midcentric though, more bass oriented over anything :p

Dale is quickly turning Aurisonics into one of the most customer friendly companies here on head-fi! Thanks for all your comments and updates.

Wish I had that bit of info more than 3 days before the sale. :(  Guess I will just have to get a new set. :)

At least you're not finding out after the sale. That wouldn't have sat well around here. Not exactly Aurisonics fault for you selling your ASG-1's. That was a personal choice. But you will probably enjoy getting a whole new set instead of whatever the upgrade option is. You might end up having to wait for the upgrade longer than the pre-sale, it's all up in the air right now. (but as the physics test I am about to have in a half hour has taught me during prep, what goes up must come down (specifically multiplied by the magnitude of acceleration due to gravity over time) and it sounds like it's gonna make some people happy whenever that is).

Side note, don't drop your Aurisonics gear, it may have adverse effects

amazing Dale
better than i expected
post #2171 of 3628
$500? Exactly what I had expected. Very nice. If these are indeed able to compete with phones like the Miracle, UERM, K3003 et al. Aurisonics is going to shake things up in an absolutely monumental way

So let me get this right......AS 2 is the Custom IEM.......ye?

This is not yet finished? ....Still tweaking? or have since tweaked it further? Kinda confused here.

Does Kenman not already own AS 2.........so now these will be different to his ....In which way please?

 

But of course I could be track in my assumptions.

Last part should have read......... I could be on the wrong track in my assumptions........sorry

The AS-2 is the custom IEM.. the ASG-2 is the "universal IEM" version of the AS-2 (the ASG-2 has the same drivers & internals.. but it doesn't have the AS-2's adjustable bass port or custom fit).

 

The AS-2 is now a finished product.  What I was referencing a few posts back was the AS-2 prototype that Dale passed around to a few Head-Fi'ers.  This was when the AS-2 was still in the tweaking/development phase.  The overall signature and intended sound of the prototype I heard has remained the same.. but it's been improved in a few ways, per Dale.  I'm not sure if Kenman's AS-2 is the exact same as the AS-2 that is soon being released to the masses.. but I bet it's very close in terms of sound.  He might have even sent his AS-2 back to Dale to get tweaked to match the RTM AS-2.

kenman345 got an AS-2 pre-release fully pimped out before the rest of the world did because he was such a nice guy and from his questions I knew he would be a superfan of Aurisonics. He still asks great questions and passes information to the forum even when we are preoccupied with things.

 

The AS-2 (custom) sound signature has not changed since the release in July at Summer NAMM. The prototype generic version of the AS-2 is what Flysweep and others heard months ago. We tweaked things a bit more of course and have put all the enhancements in the ASG-2 (generic fit) from what we learned from many people including audiophiles, musicians, dealers, reps, friends, existing customers, and fellow head-fier's.

 

We did not call it the "Get Your BASS on" contest for nothing. That does not by any means mean the ASG-2 is just a bass monster, it covers the full spectrum quite nice...
