You see any movement on your parcel, DannyBai?
My tracking hasn't moved since Feb. 7. Usually Japan is better than this. lol
Waiting on the V and TE-05
So...balance as in...
mids have a lot of detail in...
Is it lush? Does it just sound clean? Thin?
Does the treble have any grain? Is there any emphasis in any part of the sound despite what you say is neutral?
Does the soundstage go out of your head, is it like a 50mm headphone soundstage size?
Do the lows deliver in texture, punch, impact, and quantity?
^ Congrats..................... victim # and counting, tick tick tick. :)
^ All the uppitiness up in herrr!!!
I have to say I'm not impressed at all with the pistons. Yeah, for the 21 bucks I paid they are decent but they are nowhere near the claims that they can hang with the best sub-$100 iems let alone the claims that they are better than even more expensive ones. I'll burn them in and do some tip rolling but so far I can't figure on what basis some people decided these are so good when IMO the Deltas are a lot better and the Pistons can't touch any of the vsonic models.
Around 15th too and I chose the free shipping option on ibuygou coz I new from other people in my country that they had received theirs within 20 days from ordering with the free option.
^ He got lucky cuz saved by the ban. The Deltas has got much more clarity across the spectrum cuz of their more "balanced/ neutral" sound but i would put them both on par sonically, different flavors for different needs. Pistons is more "fun" cuz they are very bassy while the Deltas are more mature sounding for those that like it somewhat analytical in their cheapo daily beaters. Both are alright but doesn't deserve the SUPER-NOVA HYPE that is for sure esp. these Pistons.
^ really??? Cuz these were wayyy too smooth/ warmish to darkish sounding for me. Wish they were brighter with less congestion tbh.
^ Don't dewitt Masa' WAYNE ............... the emoticon says it all cuz that's who ya' are dealing with. ;)
Man, you think we are amateurs around here meng!!! They found it by listening to us...
That was 2/2012 and over a year before Rin's analysis. Remember that WE are the sh*t here on the Head-fi!!!

I dunno man, I don't miss my VSD1LE much, and I couldn't even give away the Delta (I tried).
With some Sony hybrids, some time, and some HEAVY BASS REDUCER EQ, nothing touches the Pistons for $20 right now.
The Somic MH415 and Pistons are my gym go-to sets, and the Havi Pro/Astrotec AX35 are my home/train ride sets.
The AX35 also sounds stellar with some bass boost. It really fills out the sound.
Hmmm they might have sounded a lot more promising with some bass reducer EQ but i don't EQ much and they didn't seem to be worth it so..... they had to go. Also these might have some modding potential just as those Corecool V2s with the foam cover of the bass port. Try using some thin foam to cover up the open back of these Pstons and see if they reduce the bass quantity while increasing the quality. I know Teke gots some modding skittles SO TRY THIS OUT AND REPORT BACK TEKE!!!

^ Don't worry Danny you'll get to hear them again soon enough, cuz i'll be sending my pad over pads modded set to you along with your stuff back. So comfort should be much better the next go around. :)
I might be getting another set as well, so.....
Oh and i hope my modded T50RPs will be back by then, so.......................
edit: Oh and congrats on them TE-05s Danny, lets see if Chill is on point saying they sound A LOT like the Logan 90s.
