So people are aloud to hear it differently but if it is not like you three, it is because of a lack of reference? Allow me to lol. I have owned and / or extensively listened to 1plus2, tg334, ie800, Kaede, Miracles, Spiral Ear SE5, MH335DW, Sd3 and several others and still place the 1plus2 among the top3. Sure I have not listened to the ASG2, and totally accept that they are more engaging than the 1plus2 TO SOME, but several others who still prefer the 1plus2 do not necessarily LACK THE BASELINE. I found that very condescending.
A person's baseline is an extremely important thing when judging any new iem. I spent a month and a half with the Etymotoc HF5. My ASG-2 sounded almost like crap when I got it back. Given that he hasn't heard the G2, or some other iems I mention, I maintain that he doesn't have our baseline when we talk about the engagement factor of the 1p2.
