And the housing is shorter than those Nuforces, which probably fits a lot better for me comfort wise, GRRR!!! Damn it Danny you're making the REAL hard on me. :tongue_smile:

Pistons are fun and sound nothing like the DN-1000. Not on the DN-1000 level either, but a great sound to have if you want an earphone that's not going to stress you out too much if it gets banged while out and about, yet still gives you a very decent sound. Under $20 it's almost a crime not to pick it up.

Neither is a bass monster, but both go really low (no bass emphasis I can hear). Both detail well, W40>W4.
That's it for now, go for the dog walk/random iPod play walk...

Having read this in the morning, was the impetus for my visit to the local store today. Unfortunately they were closing up soon so I did not get to try out the W40 again, just more NAD time.

Having said that, I do believe that Westone have been very open about these being the same, using the same driver setup, tuning, etc.

 

The only other report apart from a very vague post on the new W-series thread seems to be from Headfonia and they're just really off more often than not so I take what they say with a truckload of salt.

 

I don't want to mention anything about the new MMCX cables because I don't want to touch the cable talk with a 20-foot pole, but I do want to ask a couple of things before I go in sometime next week.

1) Are the nozzles the same size/diameter (some of the photos I've seen floating around make them look slightly larger)?

2) Are you using the same tips on both of the 4 and the 40?

I can't take them out of my ears since I bought them.  When I switch to other earphones, I go back to them and you know the gears I have.  They are remarkable.  Does that justify it?  :veryevil:

You got them BE's so really no need but they are very good.  Maybe you should have a listen?

Oh tried that H3 tape mod. I really didn't hear a difference without it. Yes, it brought down the bass a little bit, but the bass has settled down quite a bit with massive burn-in (still plenty and then some when called for). Still loving the massive soundstage and headstage of the H3. Quite detailed to my ears.

^ Welp i traded my BEs for my new DN1Ks so........ but yeah i don't need another budget-fi beater set, and i already know where these Pistons are sonically from all the impressions so far, so no need to hear them and if i want them it would be for keeps. :) Thanks for the offer.......................................................................... if you were that is. haha :ph34r:

 

But yeah i get what ya'll are saying for new comers and peps that just want a great sounding set of beaters for the gym or what nots these Pistons seems to the the real dealio and they sound different enough from those ALL MIGHTY Sony MH1Cs to warrant their purchase. NICE!!!

 

Thanks for all the hard work/ impressions ya'll. We FINALLY got a good sense of how these Pistons perform/ sound and is located in the budget-fi performance charts. :L3000:

 

Another one that deserves DAT GOLDEN NUTS AWARD it seem. :basshead:

It's the best $200 and change you'll ever spend on audio Wayne. More people need to jump on these.

...Oh right the headphones. What were we talking about again?

 

Sorry that the bald head distracted you from my point. Please allow me to try again... :)

I believe you. Just a matter of time (which gets exponentially shorter the more I read your impressions lol!).

Well I tried them again and they are definitely fine in terms of comfort. Hope you learn next time to never include a bald man in your posts.

Lol! I'd be wearing them at home anyway, so the goofy looking headband wouldn't really matter to me. Comfort and SQ would be key, and it seems that the HP50's deliver on both fronts.

 

You gonna get'em?

Oh trust me, I had an incentive to buy the Heaven V over the mikros, but I had a different agenda.

 

The guys at the mikros thread loved them very much, so I was curious to hear what the craze was.

 

Once I got them, the price is totally justified, but the re700s, which I believe more people should jump on as well, deserves its spotlight as well. 

 

I definitely feel you danny, and I bet there will be a good load of people that have gotten the heavens based on your impressions, they're just not posting. :etysmile:

 

For sure, this is the first earphone I'll buy, even if the JVCS come out.
