There was a dual BA Final Audio prototype floating around somewhere here, or am I wrong? would be interesting to hear that alongside the doppio.

I doubt DS meant that you can measure the number of Newtons applied to the string, he was saying you can hear how hard it's being plucked. Which, as I said, has always been the case for those who listen carefully.

By how much forced used, do you just mean the dynamics in the music? ofc music can't quantify the force used to play an instrument, but I guess greater force = louder music?

Man I'd love to demo some dual BA IEMs, never used any before.

I'm selling my dual BA's, though I think I've already sold them to a fellow head'fier?

Same here.

What's all this fuss about bass quality and stereo separation/detail?

A little update on the doppios. For science sake I don't know if I was a believer of BA burn in but if you guys think about it. It makes sense that BAs do in fact need some use before they are full on to what they were made for..Case in point. I let music play through my Doppios for the last 48 hours since I got them..

 

Do they change like dynamics? No..However they did change. I did notice some of the BA characteristics with a touch of brightness using the DX50 on open box. That is completely gone. The low end now has also filled in very nicely. Music is now fuller sounding a bit warmer. What hasn't changed is the smoothness and the astounding amount of detail.  Before where I can pick out what each BA was doing. Now both are firing with a seamless fluidity that makes these in ears easily one of the best sounding phones I have ever owned or heard. In other words. Running music through these actually made them even better than what I heard on initial listen.

 

The highs on the doppios is the best I have heard on any iem.. I can make out not only tone and pitch of a high hat note with distinct clarity but approximately with what force it was struck based on how much reverb there are. This tonality in the highs is unparalleled among anything I have heard. Guys we are talking about each hit on a high note having a slight variance in tone/pitch.. Lesser iems will not pick this type of detail up not even close, this type of detail is on every part of the spectrum and that got me thinking just how good these iems are.

 

Vocal pitch and slight variations in breathing, microdetails on strings such as the sliding of fingers on frets, and approximately how much force used by the artist to pluck the strings can be made out with ease on these.. Needless to say these have more than separated themselves from everything I own they have quickly become my reference for sound.

 

Dang, these sound amazing. Since I've been on Head-Fi, a lot of my music preference has moved away from the likes of dubstep to music with female vocals, but I still listen to 'bass heavy' music from time to time. By the sounds of it if the Doppios had a bit more bass they'd be almost perfect for me; I love the way the Zero Audio IEMs look, they fit me well and even on the lower end models the sound quality is pretty damn awesome. 

 

My Pistons should be here within a couple of weeks as well.

Guys, do we have to create an account to place an order for the piston with ibuyyou.com. Also, will there be a tracking number to track the item if we were to choose free shipping. I'm asking because there's a note stating that we should check with our local post office to check on the arrival of the item or it will be return to sender in a month's time. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

That's the problem I have with all single BA sets I've tried as well. Unless you throw a triple flange on it and shove it halfway through your skull, bass is seriously lacking.

quartertone already beat me to it but, the FAD Heaven series is your ticket. Your ticket at the low low price of waaaay more than most would consider paying for a single BA. But then again people paid $500-1000 for single DDs so it's cool.

If you want more treble presence, the Heaven A,C,S, SS. If you want something a bit more even across midrange and treble Heaven V, VI. A less colored one is supposed to be the IV, but I dunno, haven't heard it.

Yes you'll need to create an account to place the order. It's very easy and you can choose to pay with PayPal when you check out.

As far as I understand one will not get a tracking number on the free shipping. As a matter of fact I've not even got a tracking number for my $8 shipping. I did send a message to the seller yesterday asking for it but no answer yet....

Thanks peter123 for the input. Appreciate it. Please do update again if it's not an inconvenience when you got a response from them.

I've got my Piston few days ago. They are decent phones with big boomy bass, decent mid range and smooth treble, they are similar to Basso but I'm not sure if they are better than Basso or not coz I didn't own Basso anymore. To me they are very good for ~$20 asking price and they may punch way above their price point but they are not better than my other ~$100ish phones.

I didn't get my tracking number neither, the girl who replied my email only tell me to go and check on their website which has no other details than "on the way"

My Pistons were boomy when I got them, but that went away within an hour. The hype train may be a bit much, but I find them exceedingly good for the money. They're not better than my $50 Gratitudes (though those were much more expensive before being discontinued of course), but for $20-ish?

I'm totally agreed with you that they are exceedingly good for $20-ish
