As I had the 2.5 for one day, how do the 2.5 sound in comparison to Forte and Harmony with bass port half open?
Is the Harmony a lot brighter and the Forte a lot darker than 2.5?
Which one has the most forward mids?
You had the 2.5 for one day ? Why ?

With bass port half open, only the kickers can match up against the 2.5.  This of course is with amping and eq'ing.  No eq'ing, i think 2.5 will still win.
 
Nothing i've ever tried has a more forward mid than the 2.5.

I know a lot of people complain about the 2.5's having not energetic enough treble but what I hear is perfectly natural and balanced sounding. It's a bit rolled off for sure but you don't want near piercing sharp highs when you're on stage in a super loud venue or recording in studio... that's what the 2.5's are designed for.
 
Usually when people don't like the 2.5's highs it's more because they like sparkly highs, nothing wrong with that, it's just not the sound the ASG is going for. As much as I love the sony line I keep gravitating away from it because I prefer the neutrality of the treble/mids presentation on the 2.5 where the Sony can have just a touch of sparkliness to the sound.

It was a kind of a failed transaction. But I very liked what I've heared so I definitely will hunt for another 2.5 :)
The bass was simply amazing, mids quite forward (didn't expect that), not yet sure about the highs (maybe because I come from a bit more forward, yet still smooth Merlins), although I definitely don't like sparkly highs

Asg g2 and g2.5 are really amazing IEMS. They deserve the recognition and love they receive. I've had my first set for over 3 years. I understand and agree with what vapman said, makes perfect sense. I don't necessarily love sparkly highs per se, but I don't love rolled off treble either. I like a modest amount, which with a little eq, I can add to the asg's.

Depending on your sound preference, they can be perfect IEMS. For me, the Sonys just added what was missing from the asg. Downside would be the fit, isolation, and looks. Also that damn proprietary cable sucks.

ASG2 has more forward mids then the ASG2.5 but that's imo.

Nice. Are aurisonic still active on the custom front or is that gone now they are Fender?
They are making a few more customs but its a slow process cause their main focus now is Fenders line up. Its been a three months wait. Right now they are running music through them making sure all is ok. Im told they will ship them out by next week.
