I was pretty impressed with the album, honestly -- it reminded me of the 90s pop and R&B which I got to listen to way back (think 4 years old).

     Side note: My dad has a pretty big collection of audio back there, and since we're going home (home country) in a few weeks, I mihght take the time to take some of his CDs (heh).

     Still, there's no denying the fact that the album is really good. I like the album, but it isn't getting as much playtime as R.A.M. (probably the best album I've listened to).

Yeah she has done well. You're right, the album does have a 90's Pop/R&B vibe to it, a very solid album. She reminds me of Mariah Carey.

     Actually, that's how she got her voice, more or less. She stated that one of her primary influences was Mariah Carey, and that pretty much formed the voice that we hear in her debut album. I haven't listened to a lot of Mariah Carey, but her style is distinct enough for one to recognize her voice after listening to her songs a few times.

   OMG, never realized until now that it's actually been a year since I first stepped into Head-Fi. I haven't registered for a year (my registration date was on May), but I've essentially been here for a year, constantly visiting all sorts of threads before my first purchase. I think I could say it's my ears' birthday, seeing that they've entered the world of headphones and personal audio. To commemorate my very first step into Head-Fi, I bring you this thread:

   Hope you enjoy it!

So I received my "latest version" of Pistons from ibuygou today, and I believe they are the old model because they are silver :( 

 

EDIT: NEVERMIND, I think I'm just blind lmao. I see that the brown is a very faint tint, compared to the pictures online. They look legit as well! I shall test them out now! :veryevil:

I can't comprehend what I'm hearing right now...These sound STUNNING, and for $19?? Clear, sparkly treble, no siblance that I can tell of, a soundstage that is actually good, and an impactful low end. I think some burn in will help tame the bass a bit because it can sound boomy at times, but I literally haven't been using them for 10 minutes. I will continue to listen to them and test them out with some more songs, but I have a feeling that these are THE $20 IEM. I was worried I fell for another hype train just to jump back off, but I'm going full speed ahead with this one!!

Those that were lucky enough to find out about the Velodyne promo at CES for signing up for their newsletter, should have gotten an email with a survey today. Once you fill out the survey, you get to choose between a $175 vFree or pink $99 Vpulse as a free gift. Chose the vFree and it should be here within 3 weeks. Thanks to whoever pointed out that deal :)

First burn in impressions of Xiaomi Piston 2.0 is that these are not hype train performance, but legitimately high end performance. Sonically they are rival the MMDT in bass, lush mids, and solid but not overly sparkly or sharp treble. The sound signature is eerily reminiscent of my Miles Davis Trumpets, or my old Coppers. Can't really compare them to the M200, as they are a completely different sound, but they do have better bass refinement than the M200. They completely demolish my other single dynamics (VSonic GR99LE, Sennheiser CX150, and Philips SHE3580). In terms of refinement, bass quality and quantity, and the detail and clarity of the mids, they just are on a different plane than these others. Ok, I will point out one similarity to the M200, and that's the more laid back treble. This is not a extended treble with BA type hotness. This is a treble with decent extension, sweet timbre, and works in concert with the overall presentation, without trying to be forward. These are $100 IEMs. I'm not going to say they go above that price range, or compete with the GR07, because they don't, but they definitely compete well with the RE-ZERO, RE-400, Monster Turbines, and UE 500. For $24.00, these are a massive steal, and the crown jewel of my single dynamic collection.

Thanks BeatsGuy for the headsup on this thread!!
