Xiaomi is the biggest smartphone maker in China. So big, that one of the top guys for Android (Hugo Barra) left Google to run Xiaomi.

 

Xiaomi is also responsible for MIUI, a very popular Android ROM for smartphones.

Xiaomi makes earphones now? I own a Xiaomi Box and have it on my desk, and am planning to get a Xiaomi TV for the home theatre. The Xiaomi 3 is also an extrememly fast phone. This is really good news, IMHO.

According to bhazard, those xiaomi pistons are on sale for 2 days...waiting for his impressions means possibly missing on the sale...I might just pull the trigger at ~$26 for the free shipping (up to 40 days, no tracking and insurance)...

Of the two, the S2 is the better overall performer. Although the semi open design of the S2 means it won't isolate as well.

If you are bass-head, into EDM,Trance,Electronic,Dub-step XB90EX fills the slot other than that S2 is your choice, of these 2.

Above $150? or below that?

What are you looking? an IEM or an headphone? OR Both? By looking at your postings, I'm guessing in-ear-monitor(IEM)/canal earphone is what you are looking into......that way it's easy for us to throw in some hints.

 

Like other head-fiers replied, all those are excellent......especially Vsonic's VSD1 series and Dunu 1000 are king in their own category with PtoP.

 

feel free for any clarification,if needed.

The insurance adds $2. I pulled the trigger but with registered mail (+$8) and insurance (+$2). Brings it to $33.99

That way I can track it.

$2 is fine......but with $33 is it really worth....my question now. And with that $2 insurance we can claim right?,in an unlikely event if we don't receive the item at all? or $2 insurance is best/applicable only with tracking?

post #17453 of 32875

oh boy, :popcorn: there's another one "Music partner brown" version besides updated one and basic piston version...

This is what it says about the insurance, it can be applied to the free, untracked shipping:

If parcel is lost then you are entitled to a partial refund of maximum up to 100$.( Shipping charges is excluded )

Does this mean I might not get the full $23.99 if lost? I dunno.

 

It's really up to the individual if peace of mind is worth the extra $$.

Well, I tried adding $2 insurance w/o paid shipping service and it accepted. so it implies for both services......$8 shipping is for speedy delivery. If it's FedEX for that $8, I would happily pay, as it's like 2-3 days transit door-door from HK.
