Ooh! May have to give that a shot!

Right?!

Morning song is my favorite of the album. The lyrics are a bit cryptic though. It's about a girl leaving him, and he wishes she goes through the same pain she put him through. The last few lines are killer.

Now that I told you the gist of the song, go listen to it again.

You guys can find it on spotify. I don't know about mog since I don't use it.

Eke how was System of a Down on the ASG-2? Guitars have enough crunch? Good air to the sound?

Crunch, yes!

I don't know about air though. It's definitely spacious. I meant to on you later about the um3x vs g2. I was surprised when I listened to the 3x. I wouldn't doubt you if you told me it was a tier below the asg-2 on the Aurisonics line up. My g2 is on its was to soundfreaq and cn11 right now. If I don't miss it too much too soon, I'll tell cn11 to pass it to you.

I was at work one second, then my fingers just stopped typing because in the blink of an eye, I was there, in the room with the singer. I was sitting in a chair and he was standing before me, and his voice just... I don't know, it was... real.

Believe me, I plan to. biggrin.gif

I'm curious as to why you said I should start at track 4 and then listen on through again from the beginning. I have an idea but don't think I'm right. If it has anything to do with the lyrics, then I'm wrong lol.

Next up is The Goat Rodeo Sessions. That is right up my alley.

love  the way the album was recorded and written. Melodies are simple, but so elegant. It sounds like a group of friends just making music they love.

 

I'm a huge Mumford and Sons fan, but Babel should not have won this year's grammy.

The first 3 songs, while still good, feel more like fillers for the rest of the album...a slight taste of their style of music before plunging you into the deep end. You'll see what I mean. I feel like this album and Little Hell share the ability to put heavy, sometimes melancholy lyrics to melodies that shouldn't match. Craziness.

 

 

You'll like GRS. Pay attention to Quarter Chicken Dark, it grows on you.

Absolutely. I wish the UM3X had a different signature, because all I can think of while listening to it is what I'm missing...namely the soundstage, treble, detail, and refinement.

 

One thing iems like the 334 and G-2 have is the sense of depth and height. It's extremely hard to go back after getting accustomed to it.

ASG2 is nothing like the UM3X, as I have both. I do appreciate the UM3X, but the ASG2 is a different beast.

Really? In what ways?

The um3x is a very personal iem. Definitely something a vocalist would appreciate. It has a very small, closed in soundstage but that small soundstage is strangely a strength. It definitely puts you on stage with the band and has some pretty unique layering going on.

Layering really is something special. I don't hear it as that small though, just not terribly spacious. The Shozy amp pairs well wit it.

I had a quick demo of ASG-2 yesterday at my local distributor's house. As the set is not yet fully burn-in, I found that the bass is a bit muddy, with mainly mid-bass bloom. This is with the bass port fully closed. The mid is lush, smooth and not too forward like Shure 535. The treble is also smooth and non-fatiguing, which can be good for prolong listening but not good for catching details.
The soundstage is definitely huge.

My questions to those that have ASG-2 for quite some times:
1. Does the bass tighten after burn-in? My first impression is the bass has the quantity to move air, but the sub-bass punch is lacking.

2. Will the treble also improve? It can sounds a bit roll-off like Shure. Or will changing to silver cable bring out the high without the needs to EQ? I just hate to EQ.

On a site note, I just demoed Senn IE800 & AKG 3003 last weekend, and right now my vote on the sound goes to IE800, but the seal n isolation is horrible. This is coming from Shure 535 with olive tips.
