Somewhere in Southern China or Vietnam there is a guy in the backroom of his shop house making millions of Xiaomi "Verified" stickers while he draws on a cigarette, has another tea, and occasionally wonders how people believe all this crap.
Verification sticker = verified fake!
Be aware that anyone with accurate scales sensitive enough to weigh these is probably high, dealing, and damn tricky by nature.I have the headband but no scales. The headband weighs aprox. sweet F.A.

I agree that the headset controller is the weakest part of the Piston 2 design. The plastic version has the same control functions but an easier and more tactile and lighter form, definitely easier to understand and control simply by touch. When it comes to something hanging from your ears plastic is lighter and better because it allows big buttons/surfaces without weight penalty.
