Does anyone know how the ASG-2 or 2.5 compares in size to Noble 4/5 or F111? In the market for a new mid tier IEM for commuting and wondered which might fit small ears the best.

Westone is the size you need for the ASG-2. Not sure about the ASG-2.5 buy I assume they will be the same type.

Try using the double flange tips. I find my asg2 less dark with longer tips (double or triple flange silicone tips). I used the double flange with stock cable, or single ortofon tips with alo sxc24 cable to get the less l of treble I like.

Still waiting for impression for G2 vs G2.5 :o

 

ASG-2 is still my favorite IEM, even with the lack of sub bass, it still the best.

if ASG2.5 got sub bass. I think it will be my retire IEM

You and me both. I haven't held on to an IEM this long ever before.

 

Reduce the mid-bass a bit and add some sub-bass, and I'm set. I wouldn't even mess with the upper mids. I've realized that the way it's currently tuned adds to the tremendous realism of vocals.

So I just got my silver cables from Nocturnal Audio. Build quality-wise it's okay, though it's a little on the thinner and stiffer side. I think it could be less stiff, as the memory effect can be a little annoying. With the barrel connectors they fit the ASG's just right, but feels tighter than the connectors of the stock cable.



Sound-wise I think the improvement over the stock cable is quite noticeable. The most apparent difference was how much tighter the bass sounded and a noticeable decrease of mid-bass frequencies. Vocals sound a tad more realistic, and treble extension seems better and slightly smoother. Soundstage width and depth is slightly wider and deeper compared to when using the stock cables. The height of the soundstage seems unchanged. The ASG's also sound more transparent; instrument separation has improved slightly and overall it sounds more holographic.

Is the sound quality improvements worth the loss in ergonomics?

post #4947 of 6782

I'd say it's very much worth it. I usually amp my ASG's with a C5 when using the stock cable, but now I don't think I need the C5 that much anymore with the new cables. It sounds good enough unamped (still gonna use the C5 though - gonna squeeze every bit of goodness out from my ASG's!) :etysmile:

alrite. I'm getting the same cable as you but with oyaide 3.5mm and angled 2 pins.

 

Do you know if the ear loops change shape with heat? Im not familar with Noc audio's products but i do know a lot of them if you blowdry them to heat them up you can change the shape

post #4949 of 6782

I think a member said that the angled connectors were a little too huge for his AS-2's? If I remembered correctly he said he had to file it down and even then it was still a little loose. I chose the  - barrel ones because I wasn't sure if the angled one would fit my ASG's (and my ears). The straight Oyaide plugs are a little big though - 

 

Oyaide Straight vs Viablue Mini:

 

And yes, they probably change shape when heated. The earloops seem to be curled via heating.

Had the pleasure to speak with andy on the phone. Seems like awesome guy and passionate about there products. I contacted about crack in shell, and im not 1st owner so warrenty is voided, but he started askkin if I was on headfi and how this thread is going as he has been busy. He then said he will try to take care of me anyways. Now im not expectin free, but there is even possibility of going into 2.5 (no promises)... he wouldnt go into detail but did say any asg2's built this year have all been 2.5s. Great customer service
