I think he's asking if the Piston are better than the TDK FXZ-100, Aurisonic ASG 1.2, and TDK IE800?

 

same for the doppios on your BA  list?

i just picked up the HiFiMan HM-601 to replace the FiiO X3, which I just couldn't get into the way it presented bass. Hopefully this one will present a better sound for me, especially since you can rockbox it, and I adore rockbox on my Sansa Fuze and loved it on my ipod.

Yes, IEMagnet01 is right, I'm asking if you could give us an update in your IEM expierence list.

 

So where would you place the Pistons in this list:XBA-H3 = Cardas EM5813 = Aurisonics AS-2 (hybrid) > KEF M200 > ATH-IM70 > RE-400 > ATH-CKS1000 > JVC FXZ-100 > Aurisonics ASG-1.2 > TDK IE800  

 

And where would you place the Doppios in this list: 1964 EARS V6 > 1964-Q >Dunu DN-1000 (hybrid) > T-PEOS H-200 (hybrid) = W4 = FI-BA-SS > TDK..

 

Curious to how you would rate them purely based on SQ, irrelevant to the price.

Why not use the Basso tips? Those are like Sony hybrids.

The Pistons wouldn't stay in my ears with those tips for some reason.

Yeah the dnk are better then all of them and if your on a super tight budget then the pistons cannot be beaten 😎...i love to pistons so much I ordered another one 😃
post #19597 of 32862
The basso are nice but the pistons sounds much better and is much cheaper 😎

It's strange; I have the tips that came with the Carbo Bassos and the MEElec double flange tips and no matter what I use, the Pistons just feel like they're going to fall out of my ears all the time. I don't think I'm getting a proper seal with any of the tips I have and I'm not quite sure why..

Do you have any other tips to try? I have found the mh1c tips often fit/seal where others won't (not sure what they will do for the sound with the pistons though).

Try Philips Fidelio tips on Piston, they fit perfectly for me
post #19601 of 32862

Well, now that my ear feels better, I fired up one of my favorite songs (due to the meaning of the song) 

 

 

Precious time by the Maccabees has the best treble play I've heard (good to test the highs on the h-3s) and with the xba-h3s, the cymbals come to life! It's so soothing, yet clear enough that you can tell the amount of strength the band struck those cymbals.

 

The vocals are great in this recording, and the bass is wonderful. I even heard a tiny microdetail that I've never heard with the other iems! (didn't try on the im-02 yet).

Nope, no other tips. Got some Sony hybrids coming, will see what they're like.

Are you sure it's not just a feeling, perhaps resulting from the shape and weight?

The Piston are light , but that bullet shape can always be tricky.

I'm not sure. I think I definitely prefer the less obtrusive shape of the Bassos but maybe my opinion will change as I try different tips on the Pistons. Makes me think I wouldn't enjoy the DN-1000 if they're a similar shape to the Pistons (Although you get a lot more tips).

 

The worst thing for me regarding deciding whether or not to buy the Dunu's is how much they split opinion in terms of the weight of them and the comfort when wearing straight down; some say wearing them straight down is next to impossible for longer periods due to their weight and some say the complete opposite. I DO want to upgrade from the Bassos but they seem to be the perfect fit / shape for me. If only there was a Carbo Basso with the same bass quantity but better mids and highs..
