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

The great thing is that he is controlling it. 

Thanks. I actually have no issues controlling my drinking habit as I'm not an alcoholic and I'm not addicted - I just like to drink but the last 8 years or so I kinda let myself go and aside from putting on 40 pounds I've also been smoking a lot and when you add alcohol on regular basis to that mix and the health suffers.

One of us.. one of us... :)

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.

no. the rebelling is unrelated to the cowculator comment. The rebelling has to do with those not wanting to purchase the Piston simply as a result of going against the hype, when the Piston is not just hype, but quality at a very affordable price. They are not so good as to be a challenger to $200 + IEMs. No way.

It seems my comments hit a few sore nerves, all I indicated is that if the pistons were selling for usd 40, i would still pay for them but 10x at $200, no way in hell. It was never meant to be any attack on anyone's integrity or value system. How that came to be construed that way nobody knows.

Perhaps its a cultural thing but I and many other Chinese who grew up in dirt poor and moved on to middle class families, we were never lavish in our praise nor bask in them. If we got 90/100 in school, we were always told that it was never good enough for the next boy pipped us to it. If we got a perfect score, we were just told to work harder and maintain it, nothing more. Even when our parents went marketing and the products were good, we always pointed out the faults so that we can get a cheaper price. That same value system still works there.

To say that a product is worth twice that amount is essentially already high praise. Maybe not to head fi standards but it is practical enough for me to call it what it is. Put it this way, rather than saying that certain Chinese iems are cheap, I'd rather venture out on a limb and say that what is sold in the west is expensive. It's just a matter of perspective. Whatever the case, there has been no name callings or personal attacks involved and we are all here to share. Carry on doing what you always do.

I do have a message for Kova though. Every Alcoholic I know says they are not addicted and they just enjoy a nice drink. Carry on. wink.gif

I let a friend of mine listen to the Piston on the plane, calling them amazing cheap Chinese imports... and he said his Beats in-ears were "more clear". I tried as hard as I could to keep from laughing.

 

Everyone hears things different. Case in point. Marketing blinders are a powerful force.

Everyone hears what they want to hear. It is almost like an attack on their belief system because they paid good money for the beats and WANT to think that they are 1) Not stupid and 2) their purchase was justified

why didn't FiiO install an amp or tune the bass in the X3 like they did with the E7? The bass is so full, rounded, and thumpy with the E7, all the things it wasn't with the X3. Now I hope the HiFiMan HM-601 is an upgrade basswise?

Maybe I'm mixing people up but weren't you just saying like 3 days ago that the the X3 was the hottest thing since Kate Upton? How did it fall from grace so quickly. And please correct me if I'm wrong.

"Caught up in circles, confusion is nothing new."

Hate to say this, but I guess that's what I am after reading through IEMagnet's comments on...pretty much everything recently (Pistons, M200, now the X3). Haven't been keeping up much since I've been packin' up, but I guess that's exactly what I'm feeling. I guess you guys might relate to this too. :D

No offence, IEMagnet. Just...confuzed here.

No. Wasn't me. I was kinda cranky with the X3 since I got it. That would be mochill. I had issues with the way the X3 was tuned. It wasn't warm, and I prefer a warm sound, v.s. mid centric/balanced attack. If i have balanced IEMs, i prefer to lift the bass on my own, and when I do, i like it to have decent response. The bass boost on +10 on the X3 wasn't even full enough for me. IMHO. That's how i heard and felt it.

keep up. it's easy. I enjoy the Pistons. Have never changed on that. On the M200, always said they had marvelous sound quality and schiity build quality, and the X3 love was from mochill. Though I tried to like the X3, and gave it chances with multiple IEMs and amps (to mixed results), I just couldn't get past the issues I described earlier. That and the Brainwavz Delta suck IMHO. That should pretty much cover everything and catch you up.
