kyuuketsuki, i am sure ASG2 hit notes ... the ones that you could hear... but i am sure it left many notes behind similarly to how would happen to many gear.

believe me mate, you will not hear some... and what is also interesting is tonal richness able to uncover subtleys will drop poor on any gear compared to organ.

 

what i wonder how smooth would be organ presentation on ASG2 because many gear just turn syrupy incoherent or rough shouting... i rarely heard gear that was able. i concur my lovely front end system also fails compared to what i hear in live organ messe.

Gin please don't discuss live... I'm sorry but organs will never sound as good as live, I don't think it's possible. The organ pipes have a way of shaking you to your very core that I've just never experienced in my life even from the best speaker setups. The closest I've got from a home set up was again my friends cabinet speaker set up but that was still a far cry from hearing it live. The ASG-2 performed admirably though.

I want to say that it strikes a decent balance there, but I've never heard the piece live nor any complex organ piece, so I don't really want to say with any strong certainly. You'll definitely lose some notes along the way, but you might not feel terribly upset about it lol. What comes through well is the intensity. Up there with IEMs at least in that regard.

The JVC and large UE tips are wide bored. So it doesn't obstruct the sound. Just lets it do it's thing IMO. I am not a fan of Sony Hybrid tips it just alters the sound, making the sound stage unnaturally narrow and wide without much depth to the sound. It also accentuates treble and the upper mids making for a fatiguing sound on long listening sessions.

Sure. And I'm sure some others here would do the same as well.

Sony Hybrids tend to attenuate treble and possibly upper mids due to the narrow nozzle, they should reduce fatigue...

Not for me. They increased it (focused it more).

Track # 2. How do you hear the ASG 2's perform overall? Anything seem odd with the bass?

That's odd...  Never heard anyone say that about them before XD  Different ears I guess...

I had only used the sony hybrids with my xba4 and it does create or accentuate some peaks in treble. Also agree with the narrow/compressed/flatten sound. Many people liked them and recommend them in local forums I read but it didn't work for me. Never had a chance to try them on the asg2 as I can't find them in my tips box but it may not fit even if stretched to the max.

I got them to stretch onto the nozzle, but it was a pain to do. Didn't care much for the sound though.

From initial listening, I really don't hear any real issues. At first I thought the timbre was off, then I tested against several other headphones (RE400 and M-100) and they played the bass in a similar timbre. (I really suppose I'm not used to that sort of electronic mixing)

 

At first I thought that some notes weren't coming through, but this doesn't seem to be the case listening on any other headphone.
