What music app are you using that the controller works for?  I'm using the built in one.

 

Typically volume buttons are for apple devices ONLY, so that's expected.  Multifunction button should work for play/pause/call and long press for Google NOW. Also, double-click to skip to the next track.  Every single pair of headphones I tested with my Note 2 worked that way.  You can also try JAYS app (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=se.jays.headsetcontrol) to configure triple-click to skip back, though you will have to play with click delay setting to get it to work.

 

Strangely, some of tte Xiaomi promo pictures show the headphone with HTC One, Samsung, and Xperia implying it will fully work with Android phones.  Unless if real Piston does work and fake one doesn't?

I didn't know that about the volume, but thanks for the heads up! 

 

I tried Jays and I didn't get any results out of it, but that was because I was too busy trying to get the volume buttons to work.  I guess I'll try it again.

thank you for this information. The Seller on taobao sells this version now for 55 USD with taobao agent is this now not attractive anymore.

 

Penonaudio sells the old version now für 59 USD with free shipping. I think this is a fair deal.

 

Does somebody know if penonaudio is a recommended seller?

As far as I understand penonaudio is the same as eBay seller bigbargainonline and they are very good. I'll also order from penonaudio.

Edit: ordered wink.gif

I've read that bigbargainonline is a very good seller and in other threads that penonaudio is the same seller.

So i ordered too :-)

 

Is it normal that in the order history the status is "Canceled" This was directly after ordering.

 

I received an email that penonaudio received my order. Probably "canceled" is before the order is in progress.

I've used bigbargainonline many times so if they're indeed the same all should be fine.

Are you quite sure it's the original version? The one on eBay wasn't.

@penonaudio there are two versions "HAVI-B3 ProII" and "HAVI-B3 PRO (Old Version)".

On the Bigbargainonline eBay shop there is only one Version which is not marked as old version.

 

I don't know the reason why on Ebay is only one versoin and on Penonaudio there are two. I think you can be sure with the explicit description on penonaudio and the good reputation of its seller (Bigbargainonline).

 

The seller on Taobao sells now on aliexpress for 58 USD + shipping costs (88 USD). I can only choose fedex. So the final costs are 146 USD.

Is there a possibility to recognize based on the material if the version is the new or old one?

Anyone have experience with Audio Technica ATH-IM50 vs Havi B3 Pro (old version) ?

Deciding between these two, music that i listen to are rock/pop/some classical. I am not a basshead but i do appreciate some bass smily_headphones1.gif

Which one do you think is the better choice for me? Thanks!

New seller on Aliexpress for the B3 Pro first version too, $58 ePacket shipping to the US. ePacket is much quicker than regular China Post.

I hope Penonaudio uses HK airmail as bigbargainonline does. My AX35's took less than a week from HK to Norway, that's not bad. I'll post here as soon as I get the shipping details. If it works good this should be the best solution for people in Europe.
