Nothing personal, buddy... but you have ZERO feedback. Plus, I really haven't made a definite choice, yet, of what I'm getting next. I just know I want something new to match my 1540.

Heh at the price you sold them, not a huge price diff between the SM64 and H3

But yeah, change is good :P

The chocolate smell is greater

The box internals are a raised S, M and L instead of music notes.

L and R are marked on the strain reliefs

..and last but not least, the Xiaomi one is louder, with treble that extends further.

 

The ibuygou one does sound really, really close, but warmer overall, even after I modded them. They may be an authorized version or so, but I think the Xiaomi one is a little better already. This is without burn in or modding, while the ibuygou one has had 60+ hours.

 

I thinks we got trolled, even though the ibuygou one sounds great. At $27 (5 day shipping + taobao), these are an even better value now.

 

These have the music notes in the box.  If you look here:

http://www.xiaomiworld.com/xiaomi-brand-new-earphone-plunger-music-partner.html

 

The R is marked on strain relief as a line/rib, not R/L as you mentioned:

http://www.xiaomiworld.com/original-xiaomi-piston-earphone-updated-version-brown.html

 

I think it's just possible that they since upgraded the packaging and that it's the same. 

 

Except for the part where you talk about the trebles.  That intrigues me and makes me somewhat willing to buy a second pair.  Are you amped?  Please send me the link where you bought these "better" real Pistons.

Xiaomi's official Taobao store:

 

xiaomi.tmall.com

 

The rib is also on the strain relief, but L and R are clearly marked. New version maybe?

My guess would be that the "new" Piston 2.0 are a revision of the first one. It's not unusual that companies makes changes in accessories or design. I would guess that Xiaomi's volumes are huge and it wouldn't be a problem for them to do minor changes between batches.

But still it's just a guess.......

They sound alot more efficient than before and that treble I love 😁

Which has more bass and which is better, Havi B3 Pro or ZE-1000?

Yes I think it is a repackaging or aesthetic upgrade.. however bhazard is also saying the treble on his real pistons are better.  Wouldn't that require an actual upgrade to the buds themselves?  Makes me think that the ones selling at taobao are Pistons v2.1.

 

mochill -- you're comparing yours with inshoes fakes though right? 

 

So we have:

 

Fake Pistons 2.0

from: inshoes

details: somewhat obvious differences once you look carefully

verdict: sound like ****

 

Real Pistons 2.0

from: ibuygou, itzikd15, possibly amazon

details: music notes on tips case, ribbed R on strain relief

verdict: hard hitting bass, recessed treble

 

Real Pistons 2.1

from: xiaomi.. taobao only?  what about xiaomiworld?

details: S/M/L on tips case, L/R clearly noted along with the ribbed R

verdict: hard hitting bass, extended treble

Would be interesting to see the foam and filter on the latest version.

Hmm.... my version directly from XiaoMi store (purchased on 6th Jan) is:

details: S/M/L on tips case, ribbed R on strain relief

verdict: hard hitting bass, extended treble

(I only have one version, treble is extended. I can't say it is recessed).
