The mh1c I'm using is the one that never worked until I got the Nokia Lumia 920 and decided to using the today....they are the Sony Ericsson version in white 😃

I have the same but in black. They work flawlessly with the c3, no adapter needed.

Still writing a review on them. It's, like, my third revision already, and I don't wanna mess it up.

Plus, I don't have the original Pisons, so if I were ever to write a review on its latest generation, I would have to have the originals for comparison. I may have the 3590s, but all I have of it left is a memory of their sound (broken plug). Sadly, I kinda ran out of money for my allowance, and no one else in my family wants to buy it (though my dad was interested), so...

 

If you were anticipating the review, I'm sorry about that.

3 last things b4 my audiophile quest is completed: em5813, Philips l2 , and the fiio x5 😜😃

Carbo Bassos still going strong. Returned the XBA-H1s they were too damn big for me. If these Carbo Bassos didn't have driver flex they'd be even better.

Now only down to one thing for me to buy and then bye bye forever: the em5813 that is 😜😃

I got a pair of fake pistons the first time, and they sounded like garbage. I'll be able to tell instantly if a seller is selling a genuine or fake.

Mind sharing the info about getting the originals from legit sellers besides that xiaomi dealer(ibuygou)?

Yes. It's pretty simple. The fake will sound like absolute dogsh*t, and the real one won't.

 

There is also a visual guide floating around showing things to look for in the fake pistons, and mine failed all of them. It was too late though, as I already received it.

 

The only 100% original way to get the genuine is through the Xiaomi website, which won't help if you don't speak chinese or live in china, or through Xiaomi's Taobao store here:

http://detail.tmall.com/item.htm?spm=p413746989.1.w5003-4162207637.7.jjdd8F&id=26522664670&scene=taobao_shop

 

You'll need to use a Taobao agent like Mistertao.com to purchase it for you and ship.

 

This seller sells lots of Xiaomi phones. They should be legit.

http://www.ibuygou.com/p-original_xiaomi_piston_earphone_updated_version_brown-5708-usd.html

 

I bought from here. I may buy from the official store too as a comparison. $16 +~$4 shipping wont kill me.

Those are the first version, might be fakes, and very much overpriced. Xiaomi sells it for $16.

 

Use the links I posted for the genuine new updated version.

post #17609 of 32897

OK, just went for the Pistons, though delivery may not be until 2015!!!!

To my eyes, they don't seem to be fakes, but way too overpriced. That is, unless the seller thinks it sounds like an earphone worth that much, which is a good thing. :D

What's that supposed to mean? Do you live on the moon or Mars or something? Normally delivery would take only weeks.
