Aaahaaaaaaa....all the things I could do! If I had a little money, it's a rich man's world! 

I have the money, just can never decide what to order as I'm more worried as to whether I won't be able to get a good fit or the sound won't suit the music I listen to :D :o

Been looking at a couple, Dunu DN-1000, Final Audio Design Heaven IV. Just looking for something that has adequate bass but better mids and highs than my Carbo Bassos with similar isolation, comfort etc.

 

Open to recommendations really.

isolation is good with the Dunu. but comfort about average, better with over-ear fit, but still. at least for me. sound is terrific, though

Yeah, comfort is for sure a consideration as well. For the record, I have no qualms with the Bassos whatsoever in comfort or isolation (Wearing them straight down)

It was the old model of pistons I ordered, but the seller kindly refunded my money this morning, so I've just ordered the Piston 2.0 from ibuygou!  Now the wait...

In the meatnime, for IEMs, I'm enjoying my HA-FX67s and particularly my Superux HD381F.  They are AMAZING sound for the price - so balanced, clean and open for £13 - I can't quite believe them.  Anyone else tried them?

xba30 didnt have any metallic-ness like the xba3 did. they sound much closer to the xba40 to my ears - smooth

seems like around the ear is better for comfort as well for these Pistons. the cables are not microphonic, which is good.

I agree with you there.

 

The first link is suspicious, for a couple of reasons:

  •    You're not so sure whether you're getting the gold ones or the silver ones. The seller shows both, so ulness you could talk to him, you have a good chance of getting the old ones (which were, in fact, sold at the same price as the new Pistons until they were discontinued).
  •    The pictures of the gold Pistons give away that it is a fake. Check this out:

       The picture might be small, but you obviouslysee the letter R there, right? In a real MK301 (the gold Pistons, if you will) are they there? NO! The original Pistons have a bump of sorts only on the right, as I will show you here:

       Hopefully the encircled parts will enlighten you. You might wanna zoom it in just to make sure tho. As for the eBay seller, he looks pretty legit with his supplied pictures, provided they weren't sourced from anywhere else. Also, the Aliexpress seller's photo on the earpieces (the same one above) seems to have some damage on them or something. I'm unsure, really. But that's my opinion. Go for the eBay seller -- he seems pretty legit.

Not with me. The XBA 30 metallic highs were actually worse than the XBA 4. This was confirmed by the head'fier who bought my XBA 30.

Chatted with the seller on Aliexpress... Ask him 100% Xiaomi original or 1.1 high quality copy?

He replied 50% .... Why don't u buy from ibuygou... There was a member who bought it for USD20... cheaper.

www.Head-Direct.com has a deal on the FiiO X3 for US customers only. $160 for the X3. The cheapest I've been able to find it is $189.00 on ebay, and $200 on mp4nation.
