Even the packaging was nicely done. I'm just so impressed with these IEMs! I'd post some pics, I'm at my sister's apartment and she just moved in so I have no good places to take any :\

Currently burning them in to see how they change smily_headphones1.gif

Oh they change for the better. Oh do they ever change. Smooooooooothness.

Oh I bet they do, and I can't wait to hear them after around 24 hours of burn in.

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!!

The sound signature of the M200 is thicker, warmer, and has that measure of lushness that reminds me of the GR07. With the M200, it's the whole presentation, with that thick bass that doesn't overwhelm or go forward the mids and highs. The bass of the Piston YOU NOTICE. It's punchy and digs deep, with clarity, much like the Monster Turbine Pro quality. What impressed me the most with the Piston is the clarity and timbre. Just marvelous. I've been A/B'ing the Trumpet and the Piston, and I'm amazed how close they are, with the Piston having the Beryllium driver, and the Trumpet the wideband micro driver. 

^ Fufufufufufufufufufufufuuuuuuuuuuuu!!! I love great punchy bass!!! HYPED!!!

 

So is the bass kinda soft like the LG QB2s or is it hard hitting with great impact. So these blow the LGs outta' the water??? LoL :triportsad:

 

If so.....

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
that means there is zero chances of you reselling them, nooooooooo!!! Looks like i might need to cop a set myself. : P

Oh yeah. They beat up the LG QB2. Now my daughter loves her QB2's, but the Piston has a more rich sound, more refined. Slightly less soundstage than the QB2, but the soundstage and transparency is what made the QB's popular to begin with. These do not have that transparency you find in the QB2's or the RE-400/RE-ZERO, but they have that richness, luscious mids, and that deep punchy bass you get from Monster products.

That's the seller I used. Great service, and authentic Piston 2.0. Well done.

Listening to Skream!, and the bass is skull rattling, but the highs are so clear and vibrant. Dayum! How can they sell these for $24.00?!?!

post #18713 of 32910

Hey guys, are the $10 pistons on ebay real or fake? And are they the ones with the hype on them?

The silver color ones are the old versions, and there are fakes out there so most likely those are fakes, the newer golden versions go for like $20 and up and there are a few legit sellers on ebay, etc. Go check the links on OP post of The Asian Brand Thread for mo' info/ search this thread, cuz it has been posted many times already.

You can get them here and they are 100% authentic and the Piston 2.0. The original Piston are silver and not the same driver. So buy with confidence here and yes, these are the Gold Piston 2.0, and they are worthy of the hype.

Are these pistons an upgrade to the vsd1? And what kind of sound sig do these pistons have?

post #18718 of 32910

The $10-15 dollar Piston are the original silver ones. Not the same driver. The 2.0 are gold, and have the Beryllium driver. So be careful with ordering the cheaper silver Piston.

Yes they are very much an upgrade from the VSD1. There's no contest. The bass alone is vastly superior to the VSD1, and the highs aren't as prone to sibilance as the VSD1. The VSD1 might do detail slightly better because of their more sharper highs, but the mids are much more lush and vibrant, and instrument separation is another win for the Piston.
