Ok, enough about IF and Tyll for now.
IE800 comparisons will be up tonight, with Flat-4 to follow tomorrow. The TG334 will be in my possession later in the week.
I haven't heard from Aurisonics (though maybe their email got buried while I was in Munich), and I do plan to return them for inspection etc.
Just so you know, reading this review makes me want the upgrade program to come faster and do my upgrade sooner than later. And if I can add stealth finish I might even do that. I'll see how it goes though. It sounds as though it fixes all the highs of the ASG-1. Which aren't bad, but not forward enough for all music.
Edit: Great to hear Tyll!
That's great to hear.
It's mostly a wash, though I slightly prefer the ASG-2's taller soundstage. Cues can be placed above and below me, as well as all the other directions.
No, I think you would
AS-2 in the house! My Galaxy S3 inexplicably bit the dust a couple of days ago (waiting for my replacement).. so you'll have to 'settle' for pics with my lowly iPhone 4's camera (/first world problems).
Dynamic driver pr0n:
Sneak a a peek at the BAs in the following photo..
The look and build quality is terrific. Dale absolutely nailed the fit.. maybe the most comfortable, best fitting custom IEM I've ever owned (even better than the 4.A). The photos don't do the chrome plates justice (will snap better pics with the S3 camera). The AS-2 is lighter and smaller than i expected (which is a good thing).
I've had them for all of 30 minutes.. so I'll hold off on the sonic impressions for the time being.. though I've done a little listening with my desktop rig (Violectric V800/V200), using a pure silver IEM cable from PlusSound on the AS-2... and I'm very very satisfied with the sound. Clean, balanced, and slightly warm is what comes to mind first. Bass sounds tight & well extended. Midrange is impressively transparent, musical, and rich with detail. Treble presence feels just right.. enough presence to get a nice sense of sparkle, detail, and air.. but not exaggerated or artificially boosted in the slightest. It's smooth, but not dull, recessed, or behind the midrange and bass. More thoughts coming later.. but so far, I'm very pleased with what I'm hearing.
Epic pics, Fly. BTW, those iP4 pics look a lot better than most. The review pics were taken with my own iP4 as well.
I see you don't have the bass port. I don't think you'd have needed it anyway. Looking forward to more impressions.
