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.

I bought mine from the second seller on ebay. high feedback percentage, AND they provided me with a tracking number. A tracking number that's working. So at $24.00, I think that's the best way to go. We'll see when they arrive eh?

i find that hard to beleive from my experience. sony may have had less quality control for the xba series and have different sounding phones. some said they heard no issues with the xba3, which i thought was crazy...

Universally, a slight raised bump on cable always mean it is the left side driver.

Well...two ears are better than one. Also, go through the XBA 3/30 thread, and we're not the only ones talking about the metallic treble.

for the Pistons, the raised ring/bump indeed is for the right driver.

free shipping with no tracking. 

 

I would say it's decently good for that price, plus you can use it as a headset for phones. don't expect too much details, but quite fun.

Thanks for the info... Also lately some stuff bought over eBay small value items don't seem to arrive... Had about 7 items not arrived... And the funny thing is just received an item with post marked from China dated 22 Sept last year just arrived last Friday.

Furthermore I have other item which are in my priority list to get and been spending too much on earphone n iems..... Why can't I be satisfied and take a break??

Go with the VC1000. I think at the end of the day , you 'd have been happier trading in less bass for the harsh i.e. aggressive upper mids/lower treble that makes the FXT90 so fatiguing. I used to love them for their timbre and clarity, but loathe them for the thick notedness and forewardness of the upper mids and smack in the treble that made listening to metal too congested and visceral.

Well fellas a full review to come, but the On1 is better and more natural sounding in vocals than the M500! Strings are fuller and both about equal in instrument separation and details. Well, I think the Thinksound edges the M500 out a little in those two areas because of a more natural sound. The owner tuned the sh-- out of these. And although it's an on ear, it almost sits like an over the ear phone with great thick comfortable pads. The m500 sounds a bit veiled against the On1 with only 30 hours on it. I still love the m500 though.

 

Yeah, these are sweet! Right now, the best headphone I've heard since the X1. The sound is intoxicating. Great imaging and separation is just beautiful. Some of the best bass and drums I've heard in a headphone too. You know Steely Dan has a lot going on in its music. Well listening through the X3, I'm hearing vocal harmonies, chord progressions and drum patterns I wasn't picking up before in any other headphone sans for the X1. But I hear these things even better with the On1 since it is a monitor headphone.
