Darn. I hope it smooths out for you.

first thing i notice is how much bass there is. Something i'll need my ears to get adjusted to. And i would agree with a lot of the talk that a lot of it is mid bass. Would wish for more sub bass but honestly so far, im pretty happy with these.

 

PRobably the bassiest thing ive put in my ears tho basshead.gif

 

Congrats!

 

Play around with the bass port to adjust the levels to your liking.

No, I meant young pop sensation, James Morrison. Best known for his hit single, Undiscovered.

Actually it was my mistake (didn't read eke's post peoperly!), which annoys me a great deal as sparrows tend to be perfectionists.

So far i find that open definitely sounds better than closed... so i basically have it on minimum while still having the ports a bit opened lol

 

wish there were more tip options tho... =(

For now I'm happy with a shallow fit and decored Ts500 (luckily I ordered some Comply foams with the "Schoolswag"-code). They will be fine until the sibilance settles. Roll away your stone by Mumford & Sons was probably the most ear piercing experience I've had in a long time with the small auvios. Will post an update when the sibilance disappears, they're burning in right now.

I didn't mind the wait... mostly cuz Andy was on top of replying to my emails smily_headphones1.gif

The sound I did mind but now I'm excited to try them again. I'm going to ask dale about opening the BA's up like soundbear. That may improve the highs for me given that part of the spectrum was accurate on my pair.

About the tips. Is it just me or are they meelec tips? The stock dual flanges look like meelec balanced, I also got a pair wrong so I got one regular dual flange and one short that looks like the large IE8 duals. Well, the tips are pretty generic. Just reacted as the grey dual flanges looked very similar to meelec.

And now I need to acquire ortofon tips again lol.

For me i find that the stock dual flanges does pretty good. Reduces the sibilance and smooths the treble. Around 200 hours of burn in should do the trick! :)

I see. I've tried the Sony hybrids too. Worth a shot! The size of the hybrids should sit in most ear canals nicely..

took these for a skateboard ride around my college campus.

 

isolation is MUCH better than i had expected, and definitely great for an iem with ports for the driver. Also no wind noise skateboarding around which is quite extraordinary! less wind noise than my iems without bass ports. i have no clue how aurisonics did it... but that's a huge plus for me.

 

sound is fine with iphone. soundstage is not something to be wowed by but the imaging is something im liking a LOT on these. especially just boarding around with an iphone. Being at home plugged into a better set up is a diff story.

 

also...these barely fit in my miniscule ears... but how are they so comfortable????

I found the bump to be pretty nasal, though that was on the ER6, plus there seemed to me like there was a severe lack of bass on the ER6. I don't know how closely the er6 and er4 are related though.

As for the treble spike, I never hear sibilance unless it's in the recording. Like shotgunshane, flysweep, and ericp10 have mentioned, the AS-2 is always smooth but will show what's in the recorded treble. However, I'm pretty sure the ASG-2's treble is more laid back than the GR07's.

^   James Douglas "Jim" Morrison (December 8, 1943 – July 3, 1971) was an American singer-songwriter and poet, best remembered as the lead singer of Los Angeles rock band The Doors.   ;)
