I spoke to the CEO of Vsonic and they told us that it is indeed bio-cellulose driver. But I understand that there is post on Headfi stating that the classic are not bio-cellulose drive. I am trying to get the CEO of Vsonic to make a public announcement on his weibo (China's twitter) to clarify things up.

Regards,

Lend Me UR ears"


But the big question is if the new version is so good like the old (with or without bio-celluloise drivers). The thread starter will receive the MK1 and compare...

Do they weigh 800g?  I tried this and it seems like $65.50 shipped is the cheapest to the United States via China Post Registered Air Mail.

 

44.39 product price + 1.65 domestic shipping cost + 14.61 int'l shipping + 4.85 (8% commission fee) = 65.50.

The other link is the newest version, which they call Pro II. I didn't like it.

How do they sound without an amp?  You've compared the B3 Pro to the Astrotec AX-35, correct?  I'll have to find that.

 

Edit:  Found it.  "They are both roughly equal. The B3 Pro is more of a reference neutral signature, making it slightly better, but it is also no longer offered. The AX35 has both more bass, and more upper treble sparkle thanks to the BA and slight V-sig. The new B3 tuning cannot compete with either."

 

Is the B3 Pro a dual BA?  I'm wondering if it'll be too bass light for me.  I don't like neutral signatures such as the RE-400, A161p, GR07 MK2

How important is it to use an amp with these Havi Pro's?  I've now read a few posts regarding this.

 

I don't have an amp and I don't plan on buying one, so I should skip the B3?

It is dual dynamic.

I haven't ordered yet, so unfortunately, i don't know. But it sounds a bit expensive. Do they really weight that much???

That's the same as I get for Norway. It's about $20 more than I paid for my last pair (that turned out to be the wrong version). If I was 100% sure they're the right ones I'd go for it but now I just don't know....

Which agent is that? And where is the product price $39? I can only find $44 at lowest. Thanks you.

Buyer Note: This version is B3pro edition is the first edition pro version. Buyers need better front-end thrust, preferably with the amp. If the front-end will be relatively weak sound enough thrust. 

 

That's what the info says so it should be the original Pro version.

So I contacted Xiaomi about getting a bulk shipment of Piston 2.0. They said that they only allow 2 pieces per account / buyer. I'm guessing only certain trusted distributors / resellers are allowed to buy from them in bulk. Guess they don't want the U.S. market to expand at all.

 

Oh well, such a shame because these are incredible IEMs for the money. Best part is, the controller fully works with Android AND Apple products.

This time, the box has a marking to distinguish it. SWEET!

 

Yes, I just read the message from them sent 2 days back. They said it will be available on 20th/21st Feb. Not sure what marking they have done now, but I just feedback to them to put a sticker tag "旧版pro" or "First Pro" version to indicate it is the former pro version. So it won't be any confusion when anyone order via a purchasing agent. You may probably stress on the words "旧版pro" and the agent/seller should know.

I told Havi that the old pro is highly recommend and he agreed that the vocal is really good on it but the bass may not excite the mass market. So they came out with the Pro II version to cater for mass market as they would definitely need to generate profit for the effort.

Thanks to bhazard for the effort and recommendation!

So the bass is lacking on the original pro?
