I agree. Someone asked me if they were better than the GR07. I said no way. Better than the M200?? Close but still no cigar. Better than the Monster Miles Davis Trumpet? Close but no cigar. Better than the GR07? Again...close but...it's not a flagship killer, but it is a hi-fi heavyweight.

If I had to compare the Xiaomi Piston 2.0 with a Vsonic, it would be the GR07BE (I only have this and all the VSD1/S/LE). It is a funner version to the more analytic GR07BE. Piston has less treble than GR07BE but has more punch/slam in the sub-bass. Mids are nice and clear on both. I think the stiffer beryllium alloy driver of the Piston 2.0 can be compared to the bio-cellulose driver of the GR07BE. The Pistons are a great buy at ~$20 with sound quality similar to an IEM at $130.

I'm still waiting for my DUNU DN-1000, and when they arrive, I highly doubt the Piston will usurp them in sound quality, though if you listen to mochill, they do.

Impressive indeed.
post #18923 of 32902
The pistons are very close but not there, but might change with more burn in..my one has 6hours and my dnk has 16hours😎
post #18924 of 32902
Well, one thing for sure is that they seem like an incredible iem for the price.... assuming of course that you all aren't crazy! :-)

that they are. they truly are a heavyweight IEM for a very small price. a much better value that the Sony MH1C ever was.

post #18927 of 32902
Yeah, but the mh1c cable gave me so much joy which was priceless :-)
post #18928 of 32902
Get them Wayne..won't regret them.
post #18929 of 32902
They sound like the gr07 BE but better soundstage and only with 6hrs burn in 😎
post #18930 of 32902
I wouldn't regret it, but there's not much point for me unless they best what I've got methinks.
