Yes you'll need to create an account to place the order. It's very easy and you can choose to pay with PayPal when you check out.

As far as I understand one will not get a tracking number on the free shipping. As a matter of fact I've not even got a tracking number for my $8 shipping. I did send a message to the seller yesterday asking for it but no answer yet....

I've got my Piston few days ago. They are decent phones with big boomy bass, decent mid range and smooth treble, they are similar to Basso but I'm not sure if they are better than Basso or not coz I didn't own Basso anymore. To me they are very good for ~$20 asking price and they may punch way above their price point but they are not better than my other ~$100ish phones.

I didn't get my tracking number neither, the girl who replied my email only tell me to go and check on their website which has no other details than "on the way"

My Pistons were boomy when I got them, but that went away within an hour. The hype train may be a bit much, but I find them exceedingly good for the money. They're not better than my $50 Gratitudes (though those were much more expensive before being discontinued of course), but for $20-ish?

I'm totally agreed with you that they are exceedingly good for $20-ish

   Damn, this hype train is going fast...and I feel lucky to have gotten on. I just wish I bought the old ones with them for the comparison...I still have no more money...

 

   Ah well, I think I'mma wait for next winter. Who knows, my parents might actually give me a proper budget for me birthday. $100 could get me a lot of earphones for playing around with...Moxpads, Havi B3, old Pistons...I'm totally confused right now. I just wish I had the guts cash to enter the $100+ price range. Then again, I need a portable amp, especially with multiple outputs (the perfect comparison tool).

The Heaven IV, V, and VI have some passionate supporters here, and have been on my radar for a while, along with Heir and some others you might consider lower-high tier.. Sennheiser is able to get mucho bass from a single dynamic driver in their upper end iems, from what I read (haven't heard them). I find Ety 4ps, with good seal, had enough bass, though it isn't enough for many.
Lots on the thread since yesterday, New Zero Audio and Fostex sound interesting. Was just listening to the Tenore, those are nice 4 the price. Night in Manhatten was fun, though it at me back enough to buy a low-end of the higher tier phone (tix parking, dinner for 3...Jazz Standard is a beautiful club, for those who might be in the area. Great food, too, Southern BBQ from Blue Smoke, their restaurant upstairs. Great ribs, sides, and a smoked veggie burger, that had to be the best veggie burger I've ever had!

I posted the seller link of who I got my Piston 2.0 off of. It comes with a tracking number, and they sell the 2.0, and not the original version.

News to me.

I personally think the "enough bass" issue is often (not always) a matter of it being a match for the rest of the tuning. I like both a good amount of bass and neutral bass. It just needs to work with what the rest of the sound offers.

The Heavens V, at least, has one of my favorite low ends as of late, full, not overbearing while still clearly up in dBs, well detailed (but not crazy like the ER-4S), musical and organic (where you don't even think "this is BA bass" or "this is DD bass"). That last one is surprisingly important to me. That was one of my complaints with say the 1Plus2, the low end while technically amazing, being incredibly tight and detailed and fast and well balanced was just almost unnaturally dry and devoid of life for me. They probably tuned that in a way to match the character of the BAs putting up the mids and highs. The Senn IE800 bass was a bit dry for me too but that thing was as sub bass a beast as I had heard.

Heaven IV can be had for around 140$:

Absolutely amazing for the price.

Gonna start fishing around for some more IEMs, see what I can find in the £200 price range that might meet what I want in a pair of IEMs (Comfortable / preferably light, good build quality, potent bass that doesn't ruin the mids, mids and highs that are both on the next level compared to the Zero Audio Carbo Basso). I may not be able to find anything but I can only search!
