Yes, it is quite a gem. It never ceases to amaze me each and every time I wear them. The AS-2's are ridiculously beastly in all respects. I was asked by Dale as well to let him know of any flaws I have found. Aside from the new-found urge to have all my music in as high quality as possible, I have yet to find anything that is a deal breaker. I have noticed some hiss with direct sources. Nothing that would make it unusable, just something present when no music is on. That's the only reason besides seeing it in there that you would be able to tell that a BA was in this IEM.
After all that.. I was pretty surprised to be unable to find even a small flaw. Yes, I think it's a near perfect IEM. There will always be disagreements over a phone's sound signature & if it suits ones taste, but the technical accomplishments & sheer immersiveness are undeniably one-of-a-kind.
Kinda glad I'm going in reverse and probably gonna pick up the AS-1's at some point. Much less speculation of price for an already released product. Be patient people, it'll come and some may be happy, some my be unhappy, but then you'll hear them and you won't give a crap about price, just want to know where the dotted line is for your credit card receipt. (Not saying they will be expensive, just be patient people, it's worth the wait)
