Perhaps a bad comparison but I still don't think the asg-2 is in hype territory. Active threads don't equal hype. Lots of reasoned and varied impressions and experiences so far, especially with recent deliveries, producing good info and feedback. If the drama and hype from the old G1 threads resurfaces, then I wouldn't be posting here.
I would say that it is the most hyped IEM in this price range right now.
Or maybe not even the most hyped, but the most discussed.
