Carlsan will have his pair back tomorrow.
Not to these ears (bolded text) and its treble (with the amp I use [V200]) is actually pretty refined.
Interesting that the midrange is hardly ever mentioned. The midrange being a very difficult frequency to get right.
Ok, I won't be able to answer any direct questions about the ASG-2 (or 1Plus2) for a while.
My ASG-2 is on its way to a friend in the States, who will then send it to Europe for a quick loaner.
The 1Plus2 is on its way to the next tour destination.
I did a quick listen this morning before packing both up. I was in a bit of an Adele mood, so I fired up her 21 album. One thing that struck me was during the opening sequence of One and Only. The ASG-2 presented the piano with great richness, space, and timbre, but the 1Plus2 almost sounded like a harpsichord in comparison. It was really interesting to hear.
Anyway, Carlsan should have his SD3 today, so he should be able to do a quickie comparison between it and the G2 as an alternative to mine.
Not sure if anyone already answered this but I'm curious about the midbass of the ASG-2 vs the midbass of the W4. Could anyone offer a brief comparison? Thanks in advance!
Just don't traumatize the guy.
No problem. Gintaras, feel free to bring along some of your favorite analogue vinyl records....
Eke, i promise
NB: originally composed and performed by The Who in 1971
actually two versions, pick the one you like more.
The ASG-2 seems to have the sound signature I'm looking for, but it's too expensive. Are there any universal iems that have a sound signature similar to the ASG-2, but are less than $300?
By all means
Other than the ASG-1, I'm not sure. The ASG-1 is darker than the ASG-2 though, and is a few tiers lower on the technical scale.
Looks more like I'm getting it tomorrow, and I may be to busy for a few days to devote much time to the threads.
I'll see what I can do, either way, I'll write something up in a few days, depending on internet access at the Beach place were we are going off to.
Anyone here knows what would be the recommended IEM cable(s) for ASG-2 given its sound signature to enhance and bring out the best of its audio capability? I know eke says that the Uber cable from Tralucent is the best that he has heard so far, but its price is simply too high. How about other IEM cables that offer a slightly lower tier quality at a cheaper price but has good compatibility with ASG-2?
