OK our last thread got locked so before anything happens I want to get a few things straight:

  • Don't bash Aurisonics based the impressions you read.
  • Aurisonics IEM's were not specifically designed with audiophiles in mind, musicians (specifically vocalists) were the target.
  • SO DON'T COMPLAIN BEFORE YOU LISTEN! It is not fair to the manufacture and it can be particularly misleading.
  • Don't comment on the sound if you haven't listened to any of the AS series whether positive or negative (really just repeating the last point).

The old thread has gotten kind of lengthy so I will try to put links to useful posts from the last thread here (Thanks to AuralHygiene and Gilly87 for compiling this list from the old thread and to everyone who sends/sent me their link(s) to their review(s)):

If there's anything I missed PM me please and I'll get it on the list ASAP!

Thanks for doing this. I'd also like to add, it's a fix for a mistake we had last time: let's just make a statement that a certain user that hasn't heard the AS(G)s hasn't if they comment about the sound (whether positive or negative) and ignore them after that. And please, for the love of ___ no memes or anything of that sort :p (we already know what that does :p).

But really, this was something that needed to be done especially because Aurisonics is generating so much interest. Besides, I'm sure one of you would have done this even if I haven't.

Yeh this was more what i was feeling, if people want to be negative thats fine ASLONG as they have heard them, if they have not its wrong.
 
We know there not for everyone and we do not have to justify this by saying they were made for different purposes! But yeh lets keep this clean!

As of now I've only seen a handful of people with it and no reviews. I still need to send my impressions in. I'm going to do it along with the with my ASG-1 so they can be updated. So stay tuned!

I'm still waiting for the AS-1's. Anticipation is killing me :) But besides the initial information about the AS-1's, there's been no news updates. [I'll try to replace this with an initial impression when i receive them]
 
Thanks for remaking the thread. Responsibilities on you now :)

Same! I'll update the link on my blog as well when we get news of them. I believe it is the ASG-1S though. I gladly accept this responsibility and I really appreciate your original thread starter, it saved me a lot of time.

I've heard over at the local forum that the ASG-1 v1.2 will be shipping around the 2nd week of May, which isn't too far. I guess Aurisonics is doing their best to get it out as fast as they can. 

 
Not sure when they are shipping out but I'm getting my ASG-1.1 updated

Me too. The graphs released by Aurisonics looked very appealing. I'm sure we all have to take everything by salt, but even the potential of having such a smooth sound with emphasis on the mids is very tempting. 
 
It's really unfortunate I can't audition them, even when the v1.2 arrives here because they don't have a physical shop. As much as I would like to convince myself, if I don't like the sound, I just won't like the sound, so I always make it a point to listen to something before buying.
