[REVIEW] Aurisonics ASG-2 & 2.5 (with many comparisons) - Page 327

post #4891 of 6879
I get the feeling that Rin kinda hates everything. His measurements and mods are certainly useful but I question whether he actually listens to the phones in question or allows the measurements to taint his opinions. In any case, while no phone is exactly perfect, his criticism tends to override any positivity (if any) he's able to offer. Even Purrin, who did measure the G-2, and noted issues in the FR, had an overall favorable impression of them.

Well to be fair Purrin's measurements looked a lot better. Rin's really were up with the worst I've seen personally. But we know he had a defective pair. And I while I do agree he can come off unnecessarily harsh, he does admit when he's shown to be wrong, as with the MH1. If he would re-measure the ASG-2 and it was shown to be improved, I've no doubt he would rescind his previous comments.

@Sarurururu You should swap out to some aftermarket cables too! smily_headphones1.gif Even a Fiio cable brings about positive changes when compared to the stock cable. smily_headphones1.gif

I took out the stock cable yesterday and found the connectors are hand shaved down in order to fit the socket, so I'm gonna try doing the same on my Oyaide cable when I'm free this weekend:D

Smaller but higher quality driver and less 'shouty' is what they told me.

So what I am saying is, if someone has never even listened to the ASG2 and jumped to the ASG2.5, the difference he is hearing from the 2.0 to 2.5 is absolute and not relative to our ears. Us current ASG2 owners cannot really take his 2.5 review into account because the ASG2 sounds exactly as he described the ASG2.5.

Yeah, I wish I had both to compare. I heard the 2.0 for a really short time back in February but don't remember enough to compare. What I have received is a sample for auditioning from Aurisonics authorized dealer here in Korea. They said they have sent me the 2.5 but on the warranty card it just says ASG-2 and the date on it is January 2014...so I'm kinda skeptical. Is there any other way to know which ones I really have?

Thought they got rid of frost for the 2.5?

That looks exactly like the ASG2 frosted version. Sarurururu posted a photo earlier on and the ASG logo appears different. Seem like the G2.5 doesn't have carved in logo and more to a printed logo. Can't be sure though..

Getting a 6-conductor silver LO cable and a 4-conductor silver cable from Nocturnal Audio. Can't wait to see what changes it does to the ASG-2's sound. Will post my impressions of any sonic changes compared to the stock cable when I get them!

I thought the newer models from aurisonics have their logo painted regardless of the shell color. Makes me think its ASG 2 but i wouldnt be 100% sure

I also think it's the ASG-2 but can't be 100% sure either. Sent an email to Zach, he will no for sure because he's the one that sent them to the dealer here in Korea.

Can't wait until weekend, Oyaide + ASG2.5, done!

Bass has been tighten up and treble becomes more prominent. Cable impedance is also lower I believe since it sounds louder than the stock cable. Pacing is faster as well.

Where did you buy the cable?
