After attending the Canlanta meet, I decided that there are a few audio toys I really want, but I've got to sell off a bunch of stuff that doesn't get used much anymore to afford it. Among the list of items I coveted were the Aurisonics ASG-2 IEMs, which I now have, and which have replaced pretty much everything else I had. Thus, my Fischer Audio DBA-02 MkII IEMs are up for sale. Pertinent info:
MSRP: Couldn't find the actual MSRP, but Amazon is currently selling them for $195, and the places I've looked have all been right around $200, so that sounds about right. I purchased them from Top Dog Headphones (one of the only places that actually had them at the time of purchase) for £133.99 (about $208) after shipping.

Reviews and Impressions:
Price: $150 + shipping
Notes: For the pictures, I had a pair of Klipsch tri-flange tips on there, but I don't plan on including them (unless someone really wants them for some reason). If you're familiar with these, you know they come with a fairly incredible number of accessories. All accessories pictured are included, and also the Fischer portable carrying case, which I didn't locate until after I took pictures. Also, I took the pictures of them as I wore them, with the ear guides, but they can be easily popped off if need be. I may have used these for 20-30 hours, and burned them in for a few days on top of that. Shipping limited to CONUS for now.
If you're looking for the highest-end sound for the lowest initial investment, you'd be hard pressed to do better than the DBA-02 MkII, especially for detail retrieval. These are definitely not monsters of seismic bass, but the bass there is extremely detailed and well-textured.
UPDATE: The DBA-02 MkII is now sold. IC still in place for the other items below.
I have a number of other items I'm considering selling off during this round as well. PM if interested:
