You can just email in and ask for the upgrade option. I emailed Andy, and he gave me information regarding how to get it upgraded right now.

I don't have an IEM to replace it though. Not yet at least. I should have one next month. I'll go from there.

I'm thinking of upgrading my ASG1.2 to ASG2 under the upgrade programme (more than likely the stealth ones)

Can anybody provide any information regarding the count difference between the ASG1.2 and ASG2? Just wondering what the improvements are and whether its with the extra $400 outlay??

Improved treble, more controlled bass, slightly improved overall midrange.

The upgrade price wold be $300, not $400.

 

Tinyman is right.

If he wants the stealth finish it'll be 400 :p  But yes, the standard frost (with bass port) is 3.

Not for the Stealth model....listed price on upgrade is $400 I believe the standard frosted finish is $300

Difference sounds good though and pretty much what I was hoping for :-)

I found this little snippet of someone comparing the AS-2 to the likes of the SE 5-Way. It's in Chinese though, and google translate hurts my brain. Would anyone care to do a quick translation?

 

聽感

到目前的聽感,Aurisonics把ASG-1的特色,在AS-2上很完整的繼承下來。

第一印象是強烈的整體包圍感,以及環繞感覺得音場。 和ASG-1 v1.1評價兩極化的音場不同,AS-2不是類似現場舞台(live stage)化的調音。 有第一次碰到SM3那樣的感觸,當然現在3D感有更明顯的提升。

其次是動圈味道十足,低頻的強勁力道很清楚的呈現。 這邊頗有ASG-1 v1.2的感覺,帶出暖系的聲底,卻又不掩蓋到中頻。

中頻的人聲大概和低頻是五五波的程度,豐厚/穩重/細緻/綿密,跟DBA-2和F111這兩者走向相反。 回想到手邊有ESW11LTD的時候,但AS-2的音場加持感覺而較有臨場感。

AS-2的高頻可說是和ASG-1的主要差別,讓我覺得這的確是動圈加動鐵Hybrid設計的優點。 基本上我還是不會把AS-2的高頻歸類到亮麗的程度,像是Frogbeats C5或Flat-4 SUI那樣。 但從暖聲的耳機中閃現金屬的清脆聲,這點讓我不得不給它加分。

以我聽過的耳道耳機來說,AS-2是歸類在低頻強勢的群組,所以AS-2未必能被所有的用家接受。 同樣擁有暖系和中低頻的SE 5-way Reference,低頻就沒有那麼具攻擊性。 相對的,高頻在AS-2會比5-way還要顯著些。


比較

1964-T: 很順耳的聲底,不會有特別明顯的僻性,適用性廣泛。

1964-V6: 除了音響性的提升,在中偏高頻部份以及低頻的加強非常明顯。

Frogbeats C5: 相當動鐵的聲音,音場也大,解析感和高頻特別突顯。

SE 5-way Reference: 定位和空間感十足,雖然暖底且高頻偏弱,卻是最耐聽的一副。

AS-2: 聲音有回響的感覺,低頻強而有力,Hybrid設計卻不覺得突兀。

From my impressions up until now, the AS-2 inherits many of ASG-1's traits.

My first impression is that there is a strong sense of envelopment and a soundstage that seems to surround me. Compared to ASG-1 v1.1's soundstage which has been love-hate for most people, the AS-2 doesn't seem to have the same live stage feel to the soundstage. It's the first time I'm reminded of SM3, but with a greater sense of three dimensionality.

Secondly, the AS-2 sounds distinctively like a dynamic IEM, with it's apparent strong bass response. It reminds me of the ASG-1 v1.2 with its warmth without covering the mids.

The vocals and bass are pretty balanced and neither overpower the other - thick yet detailed, opposite in voicing from the DBA-02 and the F111. Compared to the ESW11LTD next to me, the AS-2's soundstage makes me feel like I'm there listening to the performance.

The highs of the AS-2 are the biggest difference between it and the ASG-1, and it makes me think that this is the benefits of having a hybrid design. I wouldn't consider the AS-2 to be bright like the Frogbeats C5 or Flat-4 SUI. But hearing the crispness of the highs in a  warm sounding IEM is definitely a plus for me.

In the IEMs that I have heard, AS-2 would be categorized into the group with strong bass. As such, it won't be accepted by all users. The SE 5-Way Reference, which also has a warm sound with strong mids/bass, doesn't have bass that is as aggressive as AS-2's. As such, the highs of the AS-2 are also more apparent than the 5-Way.

 



then he lists a one line summary of a couple of his custom IEMs.

He basically heard the ASG-2 as I heard them for the short minutes I had with them when I auditioned.  I feel they are an ASG-1 (1.3 revision) with more treble and upper midrange.

I owned ASG-1 rev1.1 (maybe rev1.0) & rev1.2. ASG-1 was sent to Aurisonics a few weeks ago to upgrade to ASG-2. The impression I wrote is based on my AS-2.

It's accurate.  I had the ASG-1 Rev 0 or 1 (don't know which), upped it to 1.2, and now have the 1.3.  I only auditioned the ASG-2 shortly when I saw Dale. 

post #3449 of 3628

Hello guys. Do you know anything about Dale or Andy? they haven't responded to my e-mail from a week ago about the shippment of my IEM's . Have any of you received any responses from them these days ? thanks

Memorial Day weekend plus redoing their email and website have probably led to some delays. Email them again and send a pm on head-fi if you'd like to be thorough.
