Yeah, released in 89 or 88 I think. Love technical thrash like Watchtower, Coroner, Mekong Delta buy DI is just on another level.

Wish you quoted it, because I don't know what the heck you're talking about (or why you are so worked up over it - whatever it is).

It seems like there are a few who have become intoxicated by that same poison. Piston's are good iems and the pricing is fair value up to twice their selling price, not x10 or 20 that some indicated.

Note: I wore an N95 mask when unboxing those and had surgeon's gloves on as well.
 

 

Thanks vlenbo. I thought that's funny.

 

IEM: I still don't know what you're getting worked up over.

 

Anyway, I blame it all on mochill for his super-nova-ridicula-hype (pistons better than gr07's... now THAT is funny).

I love technical thrashers. Two other great technical thrashers are Toxik - World Circus and Acid Storm - Biotronic Genesis. Oh Lordie! Good stuff!

They aren't better than the MMDT, Coppers, GR07, EPH-100, or RE-262. They are better than the RE-400 and anything BELOW that price point.

question: the pair of fx3x i bought off ebay states that i get a 1 year warranty. how is that possible considering i bought it off of a non authorized dealer with no proof when the product was bought from jvc? dont think it will hold up but just wondering if there was a way for JVC to know when the product was purchased other than the original receipt. thanks

 

edit link to ebay post: http://www.ebay.com/itm/JVC-HA-FX3X-R-Xtreme-Xplosives-CRIMSON-RED-In-Ear-Canal-Deep-BASS-Headphones-/251392786842?pt=US_Headphones&hash=item3a882d819a%20anyone?

 

states at top of the companies store page 1 year warranty

Honestly, I'm so happy with the Noble 4 that I was thinking to take some time off and not buy anything else despite how low the price is (well, maybe aside from the new vsonics and the fiio x5 :D ).

But with all that hype I just felt obliged to get the Pistons just to bash on them and the ridiculous hype surrounding them. :veryevil: Nah, just kidding but as I said before my brother was complaining that he wants good iems with volume control, so I figured I can just get the Pistons for him - after I audition them of course. Now, if they are indeed as awesome as the hype I might get a new pair for me or some more for the family and friends.

I follow. I love my DUNU, but sometimes I like that change of pace that a dynamic driver sound can deliver, and the Piston are that perfect change of pace. I could use my Trumpets, but the fit is crappy on me, plus my fiancé prefers she use them so I don't "break them". lol the Piston are great for me as a nice change up. That could change with the H1 and B3 on the way.

The E7 works absolutely perfectly with the Sansa Fuze and my Piston. The sound is preferred to using my E11. Go figure? Works even better with the DUNU. The treble is more present and less colored overall with the E7 than the E11.

No seriously, these are not just hype, find the right tips that work for you and you'll go...

 

Yeah, I've almost completely stopped drinking since my visit to the ER 3 weeks ago. I'm still not in the greatest shape and still haven't visited my GP for any tests, so I'm keeping my bad drinking at a bare minimum until I get the time to pay him a visit and find out what's the damage and if I can continue with my destructive habits.

Nah, no need for that - I'm currently not feeling the urge to get new stuff at all, so I'm safe from all the hype. Also, unfortunately I always remember my paypal password, so it doesn't matter where my wallet is or how wasted I am.

Rebelling against a super high quality IEM, confirmed that way by not just noobs, but well respected headfi'ers, and at dirt cheap prices seems so ....well, I'm not going to say it, but you can think for me and add the proper word _________. If I was walker, I might say full_retard, but I'm not because from me that would seem rude. smily_headphones1.gif

Not because I don't trust you or everyone here, but it's because I want to save those $30!!!!!

 

Not that they'll be wasted, but I need to sell the iems I have now, I've been putting it off, and am trying to prepare them for sale. 

 

I'll sell the ckm500s here for $50 and then I'll buy the pistons!

 

.....when they reach $16 again. :tongue:
