Take the Dunu DN -1000 for example, which to me sounds so much better then Westone 4 costing almost double. Or H-200 another good value for money.

Ok now coming from you, now I'm really truly super excited about my DUNU 1000. As good or better sounding than the Westone 4?! Bring in on!! smily_headphones1.gif

I just ordered one from ebay: http://www.ebay.com/itm/XIAOMI-piston-model-In-ear-Earphone-3-5mm-Stereo-Headsets-with-Mic-Control-Talk-/151210125966?pt=Bluetooth_Wireless_Products&hash=item2334d36a8e

 

Do you think these are fake?

I emailed the seller and asked him of these were the gold coloured ones (Piston2) and not the grey ones.

He told me these were the gold ones and thanked me for my trust.

Can't say that I regret but I still fancy both the IM70 and the DN1000........................

I ended up getting the Chinese cheapos and the DUNU. My hope , and this is a legitimate hope, is that the DUNU will end my search for awhile, and in doing so end the hurt on my wallet. I'd like the B3 to be good enough to end my search for a great dynamic ( the Piston are my go to dynamic IEM, but they just don't drive well on my X3, and I would like to single out the use of my X3 as my sole DAP) for awhile, for the same reason. I might come out of retirement for the Fostex if they build up enough warranted hype? Otherwise..DUNU forever?!

Don't know as I'm not familiar with that seller, but he seems to sell a lot of snooker and boxing gloves. :)

The images he put up are not of the actual item but Xiaiomi's original pictures so hard to tell what he's gonna send.

Should be fine though, post pictures once you have them in case you have doubts about their authenticity.

I like the B3's with the X3 very much so hopefully you'll like this pairing as well.

I think I'll end up with those Dunu1k's in the end. Good thing is that I got so many new toys to enjoy now, and more on the way so I can wait a little longer. Would like to see them at $150 first wink.gif

Thanks for the reply. I will post my experiences when I receive them.

The sound quality will probably show if they're fake.

Hahaha thanked you for your trust? That's like a cheater thanking you for your trust in fidelity before you start dating. That's a red flag right there. I don't know how many times I've posted the link to the seller I used as well as others here, who got authentic Piston 2.0 and quick shipping. It's been a lot.

One of the big keys to figuring out a fake Piston from the real one , aside from obvious sound quality, and the real ones have TONS of sound quality, is that fakes can be spotted by having white L & R (left and right) on the housing stems. The real Piston has a blank smooth stem on the left, and raised ridges on the lower part of the right stem. This is how I can quickly tell what side is which in the dark. I'm sure there's other little things to distinguish?

How do you know the ridges are on the right? They're on the left with most phones.

With the Pistons the ridges are on the right earpiece.

 This :p

 

By the way IEM, you are approaching the 1000 post mark REAL soon!! :D

With me having a Xonar DG sound card, will I need an amp/DAC or just an amp? Not too sure what to get for my IEMs and M-Audio Q40s (Basically low impedance IEMs and 64 Ohm headphones). Looks like the Geek will be delayed a bit, not sure of any other 'smaller' options will suffice. I usually plug my IEMs/headphones into the front audio port on my computer so I'm not sure where I'd put the amp or whatever.

Because a very reliable source on head-fi who lives in China said that's how the Piston do it. Just like Americans drive on the right side of the road, and Europeans and others the left side.
