[REVIEW] Aurisonics ASG-2 & comparisons (Added K3003, XBA-H3, S-EM6) - Page 130

Not to mention you cannot sell your ASG CIEMs if you decide they are not for you (they cannot be reshelled). That is very important to note...

Are my ear canals that big? Pretty sure the large auvio isn't giving me a good seal. Any suggestions on tips? Thinking about Ortofon next =\

Why don't you try some bi/triflange tips?

If I remember correctly, someone on here told me that Large Ortofon tips are somewhere between medium and large tips of other types. So I'm not sure that would actually give you a good seal if the Auvios aren't. But I could be entirely wrong of course.

The ortofons may not do it for you. You can try the large TF10 tips. They're pretty fat and stiff.

The biflange still doesn't isolation well and I don't think it has a good seal either. I don't have any triflanges to try but haven't been a huge fan of them in the past due to difficulties inserting (by difficulties I mean it take me a bit longer to insert than others).

Well the medium comply actually does fit, but I think it is actually on the border line as it can still slip out of my ears every now and then. I am pretty sure my right ear is bigger because it can insert the large comply in my right ear easily and slightly difficult on my left ear. I use the medium shure olives and those seem to be the perfect size actually.

 

 

I just switched back to the large comply and the midbass is much more bearable, and I might even say pleasant. Not sure if I am just adjusting to the sound or if some burn in has taken effect, but I am enjoying the ASG-2 a bit more than before.

Hmm. 

 

Try these out if the large comply still slips. I personally don't use them with any iems because they form too good of a seal for my taste.

I had the same problem as you. While I liked the large auvio tips they were simply too small to give me a seal. I needed slightly wider tips and the JVC and V-moda bass tips do this perfectly for me. I ordered black for the JVC and white for V-moda :P.

The medium comply tips were the one that was borderline too small and would slip every so often. The large is plenty big and have no issues falling out. Thanks for the suggestion. I'll check it out still.

I just threw away my vmoda tips last weekend thinking i would never use them *facepalm*

Never throw away tips! They are always useful for tip rolling.

My pair has been shipped to rin and expected to arrive on the 25th. I'm also checking to see if Joker and tyll are interested in trying them. More great news is inks is also going to try them out!

All much more experienced and respectable peeps then myself. You guys are welcome... 😜

$15 bucks to ship them priority mail insured but better then risking a $650 loss. Cheers comrades.
