Having said that, many people that I trust are saying that the Pistons are worth WAY more than their price and also have some great bass. I have no idea about their durability though.

They've survived quite a few yanks so far, but beware when accidentally yanking the silicone part of the cable. Durability is pretty iffy there, but no problems so far.

not sure how reliable the site is which is why im posting here. however doing a lot of research on it i have found no reason to believe that they are fake as they have received many great reviews. Yes i agree there are better iems, but if those are the real deal at that price than i feel like i cant go wrong. like i said i dont want to shell out a bunch of money for iems (sony xb90ex) that i end up breaking at the gym.

i love rap, and have 2 12" subs in my car. not sure what qualifies one to be a basshead though haha. but you have convinced me to decide between these fx3xs and the pistons, guess i have a little more research to do..

For what you intend to use them for it's are a no brainer, in fact get like 3 sets cuz of such a great price. LoL

 

DEWITTT!!!

 edit: it might seem they are not as good as the Sony XB90EX by a large margin according to my ranking (due to mostly personal bias/ preferences ) but they can more than hang with them. The FX3X is more V-shaped, brighter in the treble region and bass does not sound as refined as the 90EXs but it ain't that far behind.

the fx3x is a different monster compared to the xb90. the fx3x are much much, much cleaner. treble is bright and bass is stronger while remaining clean. fx3x are much more believable and true to the sound unlike the euphoric xb90.

 

the pistons are making me curious... would still love to see some comparisons

The Piston are NOT a bass head IEM. They have quality and quantity bass in abundance, but if you are wanting that sub woofer bass fart like the aforementioned JVC's, then stick with the JVC.

Yeppp agreed there, the FX3Xs seems to have more of that conventional "basshead" V-shape sound siggy, while the 90EXs despite their big bass, esp. sub bass sounds to me more balanced overall, or should i say a balanced audiophile basshead iem??? :rolleyes:

 

Oh and have always wanted to ask, what do peps mean when the say "euphoric". :confused: I take it means a good thing but kinda confused what it's meant is all.....

+1 to all for the help. thanks for all the useful and timely responses, didnt know that the fx3x could be praised with the higher end bass head iems such as the sony xb90ex, seems like that would be impossible due to the price differences. pulled the trigger though, thanks again

^ Sure thing, let us know if they are the real dealios when you get them in. I am sure you can tell by how it sounds, but i bet they also require some nice burn-in to optimize their sound as well. Don't forget the mandatory 100000000000000000000000000000000 hrs. ;)

one thing that concerns me though is on the site it lists "FX3X treble" and "FX1X Bass" as the two options. Pretty sure these two models are not distinguished like this as they are not listed like that on any other website/review i have ever seen. From what i thought i know is that the FX3X is just the newer, better built version. Dont want to wait 15 days for a fake product and deal with all that hassle.  Guess i have to, and will definitely let you all know. Im sure if they are legit we will all buy them up haha!

Nah if you own the FX1Xs, the FX3Xs is a COMPLETE upgrade on all accounts. The FX1Xs sound like a ultra poor mans version of them with that crazy harsh/bright/ sibilant treble and not refined bass. The treble of the FX3Xs is nowhere as crazy but still can be a bit bright/ peaky at times.

It settles down after 2000 hours of burn-in. :wink:

while this may be true, still seems odd that they would be listed like that on the site. And all this burn in talk sounds ridiculous, i never usually burn in any of my prior iems, just going to use them and let them burn in by themselves, unless the sound is really that unbearable

So, we're all talking 'bout the JVCs now, eh? Interesting...are they any good? :D

Hory shet...red cable.

 

NOPE.
