Thanks and Merry Christmas.

Hmm...in Shanghai, huh? So far, I don't know where to get it other than online, but a seller from Taobao might have a physical shop somewhere. I'll look into that, and fill in the details.

 

Alright, quick update: So far you could only get the new Pistons (the gold ones, obviously) online. However, considering your friend will be in Shanghai, you could just have it ordered directly from their website. Land shipping would be free for orders above 100元 ($16.50) except the Xiaomi TV, so you might wanna add something extra to your purchase there (the Pistons are only 99元). How long will your friend be staying in Shanghai? If he stays for a week or more, he should have no problem receiving it. I'm not sure about international shipping, however, as that could take weeks and I haven't tried it.

Re: @Aurvana 3 - Last time they were mentioned (actually I mentioned them) on the thread they had just dropped to $70, pretty consistent intervals on camelcamelcamel. I'm not sure what this says about stock but I wouldn't wait for them to drop any lower.

 

Rest assured about sound, they are spectacularly agreeable.

Dual BAs

A Sonion 2300 and a 2000. There are pics of them opened up on the internet. Can't recall the links.

So yes, BAs.

     I thought I already told you that you could only order the Pistons online. The only physical 'shop' they have are their official repair outlets. I'm sorry, but that's all the information I have at the moment. They have no mention of any physical shop anywhere. Plus, you're looking for the new Pistons. The first-gen Pistons can be found in retail stores, but having to pinpoint one out of the many hundreds if not thousands of shops in Shanghai is too much of a hassle for me. I may only be living a couple of hours away from Shanghai, but I don't plan to go there anytime soon, so I'm afraid I have to apologize for that.

     As a side note, you didn't answer my question. How long will your friend be staying in Shanghai? Will he not stay in Shanghai? Xiaomi's delivery service is impressive, and I received my Pistons in less than 48 hours. Considering that Shanghai is only 2 hours away from my area, wouldn't it be just easier to have him order it directly from their website? If you keep asking me to find a physical retail store here in China, then I can help you no further.

     If you want to buy from their website, please do so here.

http://www.eforchina.com/view/148847/Mosidun-Noodle-Style-High-Performance-In-Ear-Headphones--with-Mic--for-iPhone--iPod---iPad--Samsung-Galaxy-SIII---i9300---N7100---i9100---i8190--Black---Length--1.2m.htm

 

Mosidun "earpods" are really decent sounding earbuds. And for 6 dollar a no-brainer. 

 

The earpods are mid bass minded and mildly V shaped. 

The sound is sometimes a bit cold/thin, but every instrument is represented adequately. 

Well balanced and nothing too loud or coloured. They lack the detail and soundstage found on more expensive earbuds but they offer the best sound quality you could ask from a 6 dollar earbud.

Vocals, bass and build quality are extraordinary. 

 

Great for: Electronic music, Rock, Pop, Urban.

Not so Good: Metal (gets muddy), Classical (too bassy, loss of detail)

 

If you're looking for cheap Apple earbud alternatives, do not look any further.

Good call on these, I had them on my radar all ready and they had the benefit of being available from Amazon.

Sound lovely, just what I was after in that respect, and fit perfectly. Every parts looks and feels pretty damn big, cheap and plasticky though.


Anybody know of other IEMs with a soft flat cable like the XB90EX?

I can't take them out of my ears! After burn-in any of the grips I had with them such as laid back vocals and lack of depth are gone. The highs also smoothed out just a little bit.
