Looking forward to your impressions. I've got a long way to go before I receive mine.

Still don't have mine. How did you order, peter123? Free shipping and when? Making me mad now. Well, not mad, but it seems like people who ordered after me with free shipping have theirs now.

I actually paid the extra for air mail with Singapore post but I never got a tracking number so I missed that it arrived a long time ago. Took a sneak listening now and I think this is going to be very interesting.........

I'm all down for a good discussion. I don't think it ever got to being an argument, but merely a discussion of preferred amps. As for the XBA-1, IMHO it was a horribly underperforming IEM, with horrid skills. So even at $5.99 it would be a no no for me. My Pistons arrived rather quickly from the ebay seller I got them from, and the two other fellas who ordered from him also got their in pretty fast. I'm not sure the consistency of some of the others though? Seems hit and miss? Glad peter got his in. Now waiting for bhazard to get his, so they can join in the ear party I'm reveling in.

Okay, thank you.

So my DUNU finally left China today, so hopefully the DN-1000 will be here by end of week. ugomark finally sent my Havi B3, but not sure what mailing service they use? If DHL or FedEx, should be here faster than snail mail? Once they are both in, that will be it for my incoming IEMs. I got the NuForce today. Burning them in before i try them out, but after the Piston, I have low hopes for them.

Buy the way does anyone else have problems with quoting on mobile devices? The last couple of days I've lost a lot of quotes both on my tablet and my phone, strange.

Pistons arrived today and out of the box sneak peak very promising. deep bass but smeared, midrange bright and forward high end rolled off. nice construction

and packaging.  now to burn in table and tip replacement. excited to hear them in 20-40-60 hrs.

The E11 is a fine amp for what it needs to do, and with the savings and $30 more, you just bought the Zero Audio Doppios and you got an amp to boot!! Head-fi is such a great place to be.

 

$100 is the PRICE of the BH, not the difference. Sure $100 is more than $60.

That sounds like you're only using output 2? 1 adds midbass richness, and works well with bright BA phones.

On little aside for you Piston 2.0 owners or prospective owners, in my experience, the Sony hybrids are the tips that best work sonically with the Piston. I've tried over 15 different tips, and these certainly bring out the best in them from my perspective.

Nah, I 'm using output 1 - there's no need to describe me what the BH does or how it works coz I've used it for quite a while and I know what it can do. I've said it a lot of times, I have no issues with anyone who's liking it and praising it a lot - it just isn't that spectacular IMO, especially the way it handles the low end. Now, the battery life is great in comparison to something like the E11.

The Sony hybrid tips fit? It seems like the nozzle is bigger on the Pistons. Are these actual Sony tips or the knockoffs?

If you tip roll a lot you can normally make any kind-of tip fit on a wider nozzle.

In settings you can choose to keep quotes within quotes.  Is that what you mean?
