Is it everything you've dreamed and more?
Also check the bass port if you find the low end too heavy out of the box. Call it express burn in.
I thought the EXACT same thing! I honestly didn't expect it! I knew it was going to be bigger, but that blew my expectations out of the water.

It was too the point I showed my friends with my Swisstool for size comparison.
Opened box... Naturally I took this the next day after I had used them for a while... But I tried to replicate as it came!
The IEMs themselves in all their lovely glory.
Close-up, and consequently you can also see my bassport setting there.
And I still say if they added a 6.35mm adapter and a soft pouch I'd have no qualms what so ever with the amount of accessories. Otherwise it is everything I want/need from an IEM.

The underside and bore.
And finally new plug, which honestly threw me off, but I guess that is now Aurisonic's standard.
All in all, these are a handsome set of phones. And they sound just as good as they look.
I just received mine from a fellow headfi'er and apparently but it looks like that it might be an older production/batch. Strange though, since he stated he just received them from last week. The tools that came with mine did not have a brush on the side and also the 3.5mm has black ring instead of green and the shape is different (still 90 degree though).
Sound wise, I like it with the bass port closed completely and i actually don't mind the memory wire. I've had way worse memory wire than these. I don't like how the case has 2 clips that you have to unbuckle, so I will be using a Pelican case instead. So far, everything is pretty good, but then again, these are the most expensive IEMs I've had. Before that was se535.
What tips are you using?
Not the best isolation i've had but it isn't horrible.
Depends on your point of reference. I have the Ety HF5 here, and the G2's isolation is only slightly less. For instance I can barely hear the vacuum cleaner with music playing.
It's Continuum for me.
