[REVIEW] Aurisonics ASG-2 & 2.5 (with many comparisons) - Page 98

Soundbear actually sent his pair back in to be fixed, so all is well there. He loves the new pair and prefers the sound to the 1P2

And the G-2 is far from dark. It's not necessarily lacking in treble even against the KURO. I still prefer the G-2 cause I get the sizzle and sparkle without the heat

You're gonna think I'm nuts then lol, but I don't find the SUI to be harsh or hot in the treble at all. While the G-2 might not have more treble, I find it hotter than the SUI so far.

... I don't perceive the SUI's treble as offensive either. So, from my point of view as a listener, I'd say that a "harsh frequency response" doesn't necessarily translate into something I'd describe as "harsh sounding". However, in case of the SUI, I feel that their highs sound slightly thin and sometimes bordering on sharp, which emphasizes detail, but sacrifices a bit of transparency.

Such advice does not surprise me after seeing the following which was written only two days ago:

Eke, in case you overlooked my pm`s, would you like me to send a few tracks that I feel demonstrate what the SD3 is all about?

I think I wrote in my review something along the lines of "once you have understood why it sounds the way it does..."   seems pretty spot on with your initial findings. 

May be worth reading my review again once you have listened more. Pleased you have them and play with the seal also, deep is where it`s at.

 

Carlsan is right about this weird bass comment that it is always there. How can something be there if it was never in the track? Built in bass stabs or something?

 

Enjoy Eke.

I also enjoy dog tail soup from time to time.

Hi Stu. I was actually waiting for your pm's.

I think I understand the SD3's strengths and weaknesses. It really reminds me of my old asg-1.2 in terms of tuning. I also read your review and found it very interesting.

Thanks, Ginny. I'll listen when I wake up. It's 4:30 am here, and I still haven't gone to bed. I've stayed up watching shows on Netflix.

Ah ok mate, will sort them out today.

post #1466 of 6720

Eke, good night mate... i had slept only 5 hours, went too late and was woken up around 9 am and could not go back to bed anymore :-(

damn, i sleep like a baby (not wake and no cry) but if wake i cannot anymore.... hate myself and envy you.

 

btw, seems dogs like ASG2 a lot tongue.gif especially if served together with bacon and eggs...wink_face.gif

hey guys just got my ASG-2 by courier again ( good thing my local retailer had just two left !!! ) ...now have 2 iem boxes and 10 pairs of the tips hahahah , i have not been able to get a good fit with the stock buds that they provide...so i decided to try the Sony hybrid Tips that came free with my previous walkman , awesome fit ! and sounding awesome...i dont buy the "burning in" theory for 1 reason , if burning in the product would make it better then why dont they burn them in before packing them up ? is it not shooting them selves in the foot if they can make the product better by altering the manufacturing process alittle ??? i know its not practical for mass production items , but definetly for items which have the claim of " hand made" like customs or $1000++tier IEMS or TOTL headphones or even High end amps...

I've got Sony hybrids on mine at the moment too. Noticeably more comfy than the Auvio to my ears, not sure about SQ differences yet.

I'm fairly confident that burn in exists. In this case, the manufacturers would agree. It just wouldn't be practical to burn in every pair of headphones individually. That process would likely have to follow final assembly, and would cost time, space, and equipment. Not to mention impatient customers.
Many transducer manufacturers burn in their products at that stage, but not all. IIRC, burn in is part of the manufacturing process for some BA drivers, as far as QA goes.

Either way I'm giving my set 100 hours or so to see if they change at all. I don't expect momentous change, but I'm hoping they mellow out a bit.

Don't the hybrid tips have smaller bores? Wonder how that affects the sound. I should try that today.

I generally only manually burn IEMs in if they sounds like crap or I'm in a rush :P. I tend to like to listen to them though and notice the changes as I go. In a way it's an experience on it own :).
