If you can find a review that is unbiased I'll be impressed. It is simply impossible. We are shaped by our own biases. No matter what reviewer you talk to, they are all biased. Fairness is another story. And he was rather fair if not a bit brief in his description. If he had gone into detail, he still would have had an issue because of how eke felt about the IEMs he holds in such high regard with his very specific set up that has synergy.
 

It doesn't matter if you seem unbiased, that doesn't matter. He more had an issue with the lack of detail, but considering the amount of detail in the rest of the review, I didn't have a problem with that because by that point I knew what he meant with every term.

after receiving my kicks i have one proposal, lets go back to ASG-2 for which this thread was created. sounds like a nice IEM for a sane (still sane) price.tongue_smile.gif

one question, when i check musicacoustica shop i see they sell Frost ASG2 for 698$ and Stealth for 795$, is this only about color difference?

 

additionally i would appreciate if someone using them with RWAK or AK could tell about experience from pairing with ASG-2.

There is a size in bias that also plays a roll.  I've explained this to other reviewers as well.  Every review is biased, it's up to the writer to rid of it.  I think Gintaras felt that Ekes was too biased in his impressions.  Tone and how you write the comparisons, as well as what isn't said play a huge roll in the way the review will be regarded, sometimes moreso than what's actually written.  Sometimes it's what's not written that plays a vital roll, not just what is.  This can also include how it's written as well.  Gintaras did give specific examples of what Ekes wrote and I will agree with what he said, he gave examples of Ekes' bias in his reviews.  This is all I'm going to say on the subject.

The only difference is the finish on the headphones.  The frost is the standard light blue transparent design while the stealth is a matted black color applied.  I believe the Aurisonics' logo is also colored a dark red.

tinyman, thanks, i just could not believe they charge 100$ for the color confused_face.gif

funny is musicacostica offers promotion but instead of marking down price they offer Zo2.3 which i already have and do not know to who to sell it :-(

Musica Acoustics actually seems a good deal more expensive that Aurisonics' own prices. The frosted and stealth versions are $550 and $650, respectively, direct from them. Musica Acoustics charges $150 more each.

ASG-2's stealth finish also include adjustable bass port.

It's hand painted.  The IEM comes out with a frost finish.  They have to manually paint them after to get the stealth.

They look a lot better.  Keep in mind, they come out frosted.  The stealth finish has to be hand-painted on.

Adjustable bass port is standard now.

Haha, I on the other hand can't do it. I know it's definitely because it's a small operation and it's probably a bit involved in terms of labor hours, but it just isn't worth it to me. They'll never be as sexy as my Heaven V anyway to my eyes, so hearing aids here I come.

Speaking of which:
So I was at work yesterday and had my ASG-1 on and three people couldn't get my attention from 3 feet across the way until one of them came up to my desk and tapped me on the shoulder. She said she thought I had hearing aids on to which I responded "I would need new hearing aids then now wouldn't I. biggrin.gif"
Good times.

Use their contact page and email sales@aurisonics or in-ear@aurisonics. They'll help you out (usually Andy replies).

 

If you do get them, I'd be interested in hearing how you compare them to your RDB+ v1

Now there's the issue - you need to like the stuff I like!

I got a 16x32 print on eBay for $6 plus shipping. I could sell it to you for $100 if you want smily_headphones1.gif
