Hi Joker, Just wanted to share something regarding the Xiaomi pistons 2.0. I jumped on the hype train and I am pretty much sure that is the real deal. However, i find the earphone a touch too boomy and very narrow spaced, cant hear it for more than 15 minutes. I think VSD1S is much clearer and bass has a clear kick compared to the pistons. Not sure if thats how is supposed to be or am i hearing something different but i can clearly see VSD1S far too much value compared to pistons.
Secondly, my JVC FXT90 plays heavenly on the Fiio X3 but whenever i plug into my phone (Nexus 4) it starts crackling and popping (I know its not driver flex). Its just this one only which does that otherwise VSD1S, pistons, DN1K plays just fine but does anyone have any idea why does FXT90 behave such badly with the N4?
Thanks again for all the help and great work!

i'm definitely a noob but don't u think u maybe listening at to high volumes?? i use to do that, now i try to keep it at 60 to 68 db and my listening quality got super improved specially with amps in all my phones. Don't know why this come to me after reading your post but don't take me so serious i'm really starting in this.

No idea what your FXT90 is not liking in your Nexus. Sounds like some sort of clipping, which would indicate that it's a load that the Nexus can't handle for whatever reason.

Well i just tried listening it through and amp (Fiio E5) which i had lying around and it worked! it doesnt crackle now. Its strange but i am okay with this workaround.
