Nice! Congrats! I look forward to your impressions while I eagerly await my own....
Granted... I'm getting mine maybe a week or two before I take a trip to DC so... I'll probably have a lot of headtime on the busride...
With the ASG-2"s I'm on stage on this Youtube clip for Dead Can Dance, yep, that's me, right in the middle!
Percussion really starts to kick in at about 2:08. It all sounds amazing on the ASG's,
Looking forward to reading more impressions from the latest batch to make it out!! I'm meeting up with Andy in Nashville tomorrow to pick mine up, so hopefully I'll have something to contribute as well. Congrats to all the new owners!!
Heh. Yep. Even with the KURO here, these things aren't backin' down in any sense. The sheer power across the range is really impressive and makes other phones sound pretty anemic to my ears. Glad you've finally got a chance to hear them V
I'm hanging out on shigzeo's site (hey I remembered to use lower cased letters for you there man) Ohm-image and even he's got a couple of nice words for the G-2 here (although hes does get one detail wrong - the dynamic covers the whole range, while the BAs are there to augment the highs ;) ) :
I hope he gets his hands on a pair, as I was thinkin' the phones would totally be up his alley
It could have been the cold. Or the drugs (for the cold). Or the alcohol (all the time). I'll fix that. Thank you for pointing that out. Very much appreciated.
EDIT: edited. It wasn't so much a mistake as it was an omission. I omitted the full-range and explained away the wonderful bass presence instead. Arg. Back to the whisky.
Okay, why do you think, is that so?
I don't agree with the statement: 'an amp is definitely necessary'.
The ASG-2 isn't an easy earphone to drive, but it isn't hard, either. Modern hardware, especially the likes of iPod nano 7 or so, should render all the resolution this earphone needs- unless you are keen on more distortion. In which case, I have no argument. Plus, there are very few amps that meet the necessary requirements of earphones such as these. Those amps seem to have seen their heyday back in 2007 or so. Recently, amps are aimed at higher Ω earphones/headphones.
voltage/volume: no doubt you will get more with an amp. Absolute resolution/sound quality (actual, not figurative) is NOT a given with an amp.
i just got the ASG-2 in the mail...was extremely dissapointed , i blamed myself it was worse than the free beats earpiece that came with my HTC One , then i though maybe it was because i was used to the sound of the SRH-1840 Shure's TOTL headphone...then i realised...i didnt push the jack in properly... suddenly i hear Led's voice...ermagerd ASG-2 came to life ! granted the bass port was on full and my amp X02 is known to be a bassy amp without the bass switch turned up and the bass switch was turned up...partyrock anthem...never heard it like this before...
i turned the bass port off and offed the bass boost on my amp..put on Pearl jam -Nothing as it Seem ...i felt like i was transported into the music...
