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:

you or anyone else here have any experience with the Superlux 381? There's one headfi'er who swears by them, but that's just one voice. Anyone know if these are a good buy?

^ meh i am not sure if i buy into that type of BS marketing anymore, just like Carbon Nanotubes. If it is true great, but it's all about the masterful tuning. Those unique materials MIGHT enhance the sound, but if the tuning is crap to begin with no amount diamond/beryllium/unicorn/ fairy dust can help them. : P

Serious man? I'm really sorry to hear that! I hope you're ok, and I hope that you do get to your GP quickly and deal with whatever is going on. Good luck!

Good to hear that inshoes sells authentic piston 2's. I offered him $21 each and he accepted right away (I ordered 3). You might be able to offer him less!

I'm pretty happy you're still hanging in there. I know for sure, however, that the drinking sensation will actually wear itself out, otherwise, you'll be in deep trouble.

As wayne said, good luck, and may you be safe from the drinks.

 

Sorry I overlooked this post. :( Was keeping up with everything, but sometimes I skim a few.

you better hope they sell authentics, because word has it he's also sold fakes of the original piston, so if he sold fake originals, might be selling fake 2.0? But I guess you never know until you get the thing in and smell the chocolate?! :)

I still really don't know who you are talking about? Was it cowculator? I can't see how, because this is hardly "rebelling": "Piston's are good iems and the pricing is fair value up to twice their selling price, not x10 or 20 that some indicated." Is that what got you worked up?
