Hope that the fx3xs carry the bass that people say they do, need that kind of bump at the gym at a good price

Inshoes was apparently selling fakes of the originals or something to that fact, according to bhazard I believe, but let's hope yours are real. Just make sure when you open it, smell the box and cord wrap to see if it has a sweet chocolate like smell, and that L & R does not appear on the rubber stems. If so, then you should have authentic Piston 2.0?

I'm taking your word for it, and searching this album out. I'm always game for a great old school thrash album.

It's not old school thrash like 80s Kreator or Destruction - it's more technical, like Coroner plus Watchtower or something.

It seems like there are a few who have become intoxicated by that same poison. Piston's are good iems and the pricing is fair value up to twice their selling price, not x10 or 20 that some indicated.

Note: I wore an N95 mask when unboxing those and had surgeon's gloves on as well.

Yeah, released in 89 or 88 I think. Love technical thrash like Watchtower, Coroner, Mekong Delta buy DI is just on another level.

Thanks vlenbo. I thought that's funny.

 

IEM: I still don't know what you're getting worked up over.

 

Anyway, I blame it all on mochill for his super-nova-ridicula-hype (pistons better than gr07's... now THAT is funny).

I love technical thrashers. Two other great technical thrashers are Toxik - World Circus and Acid Storm - Biotronic Genesis. Oh Lordie! Good stuff!

They aren't better than the MMDT, Coppers, GR07, EPH-100, or RE-262. They are better than the RE-400 and anything BELOW that price point.

question: the pair of fx3x i bought off ebay states that i get a 1 year warranty. how is that possible considering i bought it off of a non authorized dealer with no proof when the product was bought from jvc? dont think it will hold up but just wondering if there was a way for JVC to know when the product was purchased other than the original receipt. thanks

 

edit link to ebay post: http://www.ebay.com/itm/JVC-HA-FX3X-R-Xtreme-Xplosives-CRIMSON-RED-In-Ear-Canal-Deep-BASS-Headphones-/251392786842?pt=US_Headphones&hash=item3a882d819a%20anyone?

 

states at top of the companies store page 1 year warranty

Ok, I cracked and ordered the Pistons from ibuygou. With my luck I'll probably wait 2 months and by the time they arrive there will be 10 new iems hyped as the best ever in the sub-$100 price range.

I think you're safe with the Piston. There hasn't been a great new discovery presented in awhile otherwise. Most other discoveries lately seem to be hybrids and BA's.

Honestly, I'm so happy with the Noble 4 that I was thinking to take some time off and not buy anything else despite how low the price is (well, maybe aside from the new vsonics and the fiio x5 :D ).

But with all that hype I just felt obliged to get the Pistons just to bash on them and the ridiculous hype surrounding them. :veryevil: Nah, just kidding but as I said before my brother was complaining that he wants good iems with volume control, so I figured I can just get the Pistons for him - after I audition them of course. Now, if they are indeed as awesome as the hype I might get a new pair for me or some more for the family and friends.

I follow. I love my DUNU, but sometimes I like that change of pace that a dynamic driver sound can deliver, and the Piston are that perfect change of pace. I could use my Trumpets, but the fit is crappy on me, plus my fiancé prefers she use them so I don't "break them". lol the Piston are great for me as a nice change up. That could change with the H1 and B3 on the way.

Will you remember tomorrow that you ordered them? If not you'll be pleasantly surprised in a few months time. :veryevil:

 

No seriously, these are not just hype, find the right tips that work for you and you'll go...
