The Pro 1 is the anti basshead, but the clarity and everything else about it is so great, that it does not matter. Bass is sufficient enough, better than the RE-400 slightly.

 

The Piston is the basshead IEM. The one directly from Xiaomi is even better controlled with bass and treble.

 

For under $100 for both, they are excellent complements to each other, with premium like quality.

Somic MH415 is hardly mentioned anymore, even though is said to be favourite at $30 compared to Pistons at $20. Does MH415 have good bass compared to Pistons? Less than Pistons but more than Pro 1? SQ preference wise Pro 1 then MH415 then Pistons?

The Pistons I got from Xiaomi sound better to me. The MH415 is tough to get a comfortable fit with, and is very tip dependent. The Somic and Moxpad are still great though.

@Twister6 in your review of Don Scorpio Dolphin you mentioned it surpasses cans 2x - 3x more cost. Could you please elaborate on that? How does Dolphin compare to those HPs?

I prefer Somic - Piston are more bass heavy, have so-so treble and sometimes lack the detail compared to the MH415.
B3 Pro v1 are too dark for me. They are just too slow.

Interesting, first time we're hearing something like this I think :)

The mh415 sound incredible to me. I do agree about the fit, they suck. I made custom ones out of foam earplugs. Fit like a glove, and sound great. Loving these lil cheapies. They blow away ie's costing more than $100.

You got the V1 in? The V2 is much darker. You must have really hated the V2

 

Junk the stock tips too, they suck.

That's why I use tips from Meelectronic. And generally I don't like dark sound, which is why I prefer ba drivers.

I usually can't stand BA drivers for being too harsh. AX-35 is the first one that's tolerable to me. The Teac is pretty nice too.

One thing about DHL and even EMS, they may be a little expensive, but they ship crazy fast. Usually 3-5 days

Great thread, best way is someone can setup a store in US to sell all authentic aisian brands, which can save a lot of our waiting time and risks

I just purchased them and was wondering if the isolation was really that bad, and if it is bad, what tips do you recommend to remedy that?
