Ok, I'll shut up about this, but one more comment:
I contacted the seller and asked if these were 100% original as he advertised. got this response:
I can't really saperate them since xiaomi is Chinese brand ,if u really mind please order from official store , thanks.
So, these being probably fake, I ordered another set from Ibuygou.
They are about to arrive in a months time, and I'll compare the two to see if its really fake.
Thanks for the help so far ;)
Hmm, I guess he can't "saperate" them because he doesn't know how to read Chinese. He can't know if hey're original or not because he probably couldn't read Chinese. The part where he talks about 'ordering from the official store' definitely gives away that he isn't sure about the Pistons that he's selling. Considering that you aren't in China, Xiaomi will have a hard time delivering your Pistons to you since they don't seem to have any international shipping as far as I can tell (correct me if I'm wrong). Since he's the seller, why don't you bug him a little and tell him to order the Pistons from the original store for you, since he obviously doesn't know whether or not his Pistons are fakes, and he's brash enough to actually tell you to order from the Xiaomi store, pretty much knowing that they couldn't ship to you. What nerve.
Yes, yes, we must wait for the Masa' Troll. He will be able to give you a good lecturing on forum post etiquette.
Now, gotta sleep. I am totally beat. Now...g'night!
DannyBai I can't wait. They may be sitting in a bin in the post office as I type this.

Shouldn't be too long for the Pistons now..
014-01-13 14:53, COLLECTED, HEATHROW WORLDWIDE DC. They're in the UK now! I am confident that they will be better than my Carbo Bassos by the sounds of what people have said so far.
Do I get a space grey Ferrari with the words Head-fi painted on the sides?
The Doppios are still lonely somewhere (until tomorrow), but ut oh! The Pistons have rolled into my hands! Finally! So now I'm about to find out in a few seconds if an earphone under $20 is really a M200 and IM70 killer. I doubt it, but I'll eat a plate of crow if I'm wrong. Initial impressions in a few.
