Let's just say I really loved on my ASG-2 before sending them off. 

 

You and James should go get tested.

Indeed.. the 4L+iBuds experience is no joke: detail retrieval is so extreme and the timbre so pure, you'll likely puke on yourself & experience headaches from the 'euphoria' the following day.. or something like that.

Intresting development about the ASG-2 after hearing a particular song...alot of people say that the treble is hiding...well in this track i listened to the pluck of the higher freq strings on the guitar just attacked me with incredible detail...wow

Here is Picture of my ASG-2 , when i was about to send it for repair Dale told me that i could have the extra Set he brought for his hong kong show that didnt get used yet. Got it yesterday have been burning it in with my AK100 since...  i know that a few hours burn in not enough for some but it is for me...

Anyway this Pair is the still the frosted version but one thing stands out in particular the AG logo on the front has a red coloring in it ! Looks much Nicer like this too !

Got it with a black cable too ! Black is better color choice my Silver cable was already greening " though i personally like the greening of the cable like how when zippo lighters get it scuffs it add to the character of the item making more "yours" 

 

Here enjoy a Pic of my Current Portable Setup 

DIY RWAK100 -> ASG-2

Just got mine today. First impressions are largely positive. Need to wait for the sound to settle before further impressions. Also the Ortofon tips really open the sounds up, not a big suprise.

^ That new epoxy stealth finish is quite sexy. It looks way more "Stealth" than the original glossier finish.

 

It reminds me of these:

I suppose my only nitpick is that midbass impact and quantity is attenuated a bit too much for my tastes, so drums and bass don't sound as meaty as the stock, but eh, what can ya do? Wait for Dale's mods I guess

 

Awesome to see another ORL fan out there... The very first time I ever got to listen to the ASG-2, at the Canlanta meet, I listened to more Mars Volta than anything to test 'em out. Day of the Baphomets may have been the song that sold me on 'em ;).

ASG2 loves Dick Tracy movie and Madonna :-D

 

actually the entire soundtrack is excellent, love Madonna for it. also very good for testing gear with pop music.

ah.... there is no recommendation or hype.

you better see what type of sound you want. also Dick Tracy OST is NOT traditional Madonna, listen to the entire album first.

 

on a side note perhaps i publish points i wrote to friend headfier who prepares to test ASG2:

 

 

be prepared for the following:

 

1 much narrower stage, almost like small hall or middle stage, no spacious hall hu-ha effect

2 mid bass pronounced more, low bass good but takes back seat and is slightly rolled off

3 very tamed but well controlled highs, upper mid range freq drop halting sparkle extension and air

4 rather taught and aggressive signature

5 amazingly clear and intimate voices, something rare i heard from IEM

6 when you will adapt to this you will learn to appreciate what ASG 2 can

 

what ASG 2 can?

 

1 best part is voices, you literally hear singers manipulating voices, almost like singer being in your head

2 mid bass and mid tones coherency will bring many recordings to life

3 very well controlled treble and no fatigue whatsoever

4 full bass extension due to stark mid bass as there is no compromise in passing crossover from mid to low bass, low bass takes some beating but for a good reason (remember these are no loudspeakers)

5 very black background, notes full sounding, i find black space on some recordings amazing with ASG2

6 despite small stage and narrow space stereo imaging and instrument separation is just superb, unbelievable for such a small stage but this is what i hear

7 and see if you can like ASG2 then after listen critically for a few days
