I second that about the cable, it seems more like a full headphone cable, very stiff, bulky, not for portable use around town, though it may be useful as a rope to escape a burning building for about 2' then jump!!!LOL!!! I also have had the cable disconnect several times while adjusting the tips in my ear.
I've had the demo for 2 days now, my meelec full bass tips work best. First impression I first noticed the clarity and effortlessness of the music. Like breathing! A huge upgrade from the 7750, like 3x the 7550 in all areas except bass which is probably exaggerated in the sony. (I'm getting some tips off ebay recommended by Lee which might help with seal and bass)
The imaging and clarity is amazing, and while the soundstage is very big, the instruments and placement is not so scattered as to lose cohesiveness and I like that. The preciseness has such a beautiful air and space as to make it seem like I'm not wearing IEMs!!! and the music is right here!!
I do have the AS2, a $600 purchase, which I"m still trying to "save", but the 1P2 makes them seem veiled and overy bassy.
