I sent an email too with no reply. Well, I'm not going to lose my mind over $26, but PayPal will reimburse anyway. I'm giving them one more week. I don't need them.

The thing I've noticed about the OM Audio is the sustain times. Listening to Yes - Roundabout, and the pluck of the strings, the note just goes on and on, even after another string has been plucked. Just a treat to hear.

I'm not particularly worried that my order won't show up, I'm just very curious about where it is:)

i got a tracking number with mine. it's the damn wait times that's killing me. I've got the Piston 2.0 coming from Singapore, the DUNU DN-1000 coming from China, and the AT-IM70 coming from Japan, and all are taking FOREVER to show up. To be honest, all of them are at Customs at this moment.

I'll post this one more time for those of you thinking about picking up the Piston 2.0

 

This seller provides a tracking number, ships quickly, and is selling the gold 2.0 version with beryllium alloy driver.

plus they have a 100% rating.

Interesting. I ran into these, and the measured really good, with solid bass measurements for a dual BA. 

 

DENON AH-C400

 

I wonder how good these really are? This is the first time I've heard of these.

Thanks Quartertone. I was intensely interested until the description of the upper treble as "metallic", which was the great turn off for me for both the XBA 30 and XBA 4. That unnatural metallic tinge in the highs. Yuck.

Thanks iEMagnet01, will look into it.

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!

Glad to hear that you (Doctorjazz) are enjoying the multilevel fruits of civilization.  Congratulations!  sound is n important part of that, but you enjoying many more dimensions!

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.

 

Have to concur with vwinter, the lows of the Heaven V sound so natural with great detail but also so punchy with good impact. I'll admit that this is the only BA-only IEM I've heard, but I've never been bothered with the lows feeling dry or artificial. Overall the sound is just so coherent and organic that I just get lost in the music. In contrast, the other IEMs I've owned always made me nitpick at the technical performance of the earphone since something always felt slightly out of place. This is definitely not the case with the Heaven V. After half a year since purchasing them, I'm still constantly wowed by them and I have no real desire to upgrade, only the slight desire to buy one of the hyped IEMs I read about in this thread. But those desires quickly vanish every time I put the Heaven V back in my ears.  :p

So stoked. Not only did I order a FiiO X3 as an upgrade from my iPod Touch 4 and Sansa Fuze, but KEF came through and I'm getting a new pair of KEF M200 to replace my busted pair. So now I get to listen to my amazing OM Audio IEP's through an X3, but I got the Piston 2.0, a DN-1000, an AT-IM70, and M200 all coming in the next week. The New Year is indeed sweet on my ears! :beerchug:

Xiaomi Pistons 2.0 arrived today. 

 

first impressions: pretty clear and dynamic. fun sounding... a bit v-shaped sound. good bass impact, clear trebles and no sibilance. mids are clear too. soundstage is good, as these are vented. 

 

sturdy quality with good machining, very compact packaging. all in all very good for USD19, with beryllium drivers to boot. only gripes are cord is too short, and i can't really get a good fit with the supplied eartips.

 

bought from ibuygou, will free standard shipping and took about 2 weeks to arrive here in Malaysia.

I have the same problem...only because I like wearing them around-the-ear instead of straight-down like it was designed for. Just wish they had a shirt clip of some sort...
