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

Glad i asked, not sure whats going on with these. I guess the "updated" is the old version. 

Looking forward to your review

     The updated version is sold in only one color: gold. The old version seems to be discontinued (based on Xiaomi's website). They don't seem to sell the original Pistons anymore; instead they have a 'paperback' edition which is still being sold (link). Since the old and the new versions look similar to each other, some sellers just say they're the new ones. Watch out for these when shopping for them. They may not be fake, but they aren't the new ones, either.

 

UPDATE: I read up on d marc0's post...

 Could this be the MH1c killer that we've all been waiting for? But it's still twice the price of the Sony's...

...which asks if the new Pistons could be the killer of the MH1C. But when I took a look at Taobao, I found that the Sonys were twice that of the Pistons. Did you say this wrong? Or is it more expensive in the US?

I can get the Pistons for $30 here in Australia. I got my MH1 for $15 shipped! So I guess it will depend on ones location?

Linky? I don't have a MH1 and I hear they are the bomb with a nice amp. Here in the states they can cost $50>

The seller whom I bought my MH1 from ran out of stock. That was $15 shipped from the uk!

This is the cheapest I can find at the moment: http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Original-MH1-Sony-Ericsson-Stereo-Headset-Xperia-Play-Vivaz-C902-K850i-C905-/141137958874?pt=DE_Technik_Computerzubehör_Multimedia&hash=item20dc7a57da&_uhb=1

I'll probably get my Moxpads delivered at the same time (2015) smily_headphones1.gif

I ordered them on October 27'the and they were shiped out of China November 13'the. They still haven't even reached Norwegian customs......

I also ordered the beryllium version of the Piston's yesterday. Went with the ones from iBuygou and added the extra $8 for the registered mail with Singapore post so hopefully mine arrives already in 2014.

Man these Frosties in their stock form doesn't sound half bad. Worthy of "discovery" fo' sho. But they are a pain in the arse to drive properly. Needs some serious power, e17 on volume 50 with 12 gain and 5 on rockboxed sansa clip+.

 

This brick almost doesn't have enough juice to drive them on max power sitting, but THANK GOD it does. PHEEEEEEW!!!


Look at that fine piece of machinery!

I happen to own IHIFI 812v2's little sister, the IHIFI 760. You could literally kill someone with a swift hit over their head.

It's that damn heavy. 


post #17619 of 32875
I do wonder why HIFI dap manufactures don't try a little harder with the design and UI aspect of the players. Well, with the expect of Sony whose's X1 & 880 series looks especially magnificent.

Cool. Can't wait to hear your impressions. Seeing as the Pistons and the Moxpads are the same price (at least from a sale I'm seeing here, original price is 2x), they should be interesting. :popcorn: Hope you get your earphones sooner.

Easy on the ear fatigue_less listen for sure, stage not crazy wide or deep but pretty good, with nice mids and decent highs. Bass ain't too shabby as well. Was pleasantly surprised that they already sound this good unmodded. Not bad not bad at all........

Dayum, be prepared when you mod them.
The Mad Dogs are insane! The seperation, imaging + bass is so crazy on these
Never going to sell these babies :D Just too good

post #17624 of 32875
So here's a question for my DIYers. The issue that my FireyeDA had was that the micro-usb broke off. I could have easily soldered it back on, but it was brand new so I just sent it off to be replaced. So when I get my new one the first thing I want to do is open the casing and check to see how stable the usb port is soldered to the board. The next thing I want to do--and this is the question--is use some adhesive to hold it into place a little better. So what kind-of adhesive will work and not fry my pcb/components?

I'll qoute myself from the Chinese thread were I posted my impressions on a couple Awei cheapos that I puchased a while ago:

 

The good thing is that I've finally got some time to spend with my two Awei purchases from a while back: ES800M and ES100i.

 

To sum them up the ES800M is really really nice for $7. Nice bass.  airy and a little bright sound. It will not be easy to beat these at their price point. Should be great for gifts ore using for sport activities.

 

The ES100i on the other hand, while more expensive ($8 ;)) does not impress me that much. The bass on these are even deeper then on the ES800M's but it bleeds to much into the midrange for my taste. They're also overall darker souding. If you're a basshead and prefer a darker sound they could still be of interest.

 

I would really recommend trying out the ES800M if someone would like to know how good sound you can get for $7!
