Great! Can't wait to hear your impressions, what with you having more earphones to compare with and all.

:popcorn:

Also, now that makes two of us broke. :p

Oh my! DannyBai, you and Ericp are giving me a hard time!

 

Noble 4... XBA H3... Noble 4... XBA H3...

I'm like a broken record! :confused_face(1):

Well my KEF M200's already are faulty. Three days of light use, and the woofer in the left ear already went dead. I'm incredibly disappointed. Contacted customer support by e-mail. Let's see what they say when I hear back?

KEF's customer service is great and very professional in my experience. You should hear from them very soon. I'm confident they'll help you out.

Keep us posted. I'm hoping for the best.

Out of the many, many earphones I've tried, the KEF M200 was/is my favorite in SQ. I cannot stand wearing it though. If KEF makes an M300 which fixes the comfort issues and refines the sound even more, I'm all over it.

 

It has me very interested in the H3, but not at its current price.

 

Next up will be a Piston 2.0 vs Havi B3 shootout for the budget value chinese king when I get the Piston. Beryllium vs. Dual Dynamic, both under $50. Gotta love advances in technology.

Hi people,

 

I've just ordered the Xiaomi Pistons from here.  Are they ok?  Is there a better version that I've missed?!

I think that may be the older model :\

 

EDIT: Actually, I think the picture is just outdated; I believe these are the newer model.

If they are the older model, are they still decent earphones?

I don't know much about either, but I did order the newer model from Ibuygou. I'm almost 100% you ordered the new model because that's where beatsguy ordered his. I only initially saw the picture with the silver phones, but in the description it says brown.

 

EDIT: Oh wow, 100th post :eek:

No worries.  I've just emailed them to ask and let them know that it's the newer version I want.  Given that I placed the order only minutes ago, maybe they'll be good to me and let me cancel if these are not the latest ones..

They are good, but the new one is supposedly better.

 

This is where most of us have ordered from:

Thanks for this.  I should have taken a few more minutes to look before I ordered.  I wasn't aware there were two versions until afterwards!
