Bought anyway.

It doesn't sound like it's another new version, but no one knows yet. Comes with a carry bag, custom shirt clip, and white box.

Beside white box, sounds like carry bag is the only difference.  Though, I can't imagine they will be able to squeeze in carry bag in there.  The box/packaging is ultra compact to begin with.

 

Btw, do you mind posting a link to that M-100 look-a-like you have in the picture above?  To be honest, I hardly listen to my M-100 anymore, but still keeping it because of that super compact folding design.  I'm always fascinated by it.  As a matter of fact, I mentioned that my ultimate headphones would be V-Moda M-100 with Dolphin drivers ;)

KZ LP2. Looks and folds just like the M-100. Not sure if they sound the same though. These are pretty warm leaning.

Very nice cable, case, and headphone for $50 before fees.

Or better yet, get that $50 look-a-like and use it as a guinea pig ;)

They aren't as hefty, and they don't look quite as nice... but they are comfy and sound good. Awesome detachable premium cable.

Just threw on the KZ-GR (Spartacus) with the changeable nozzles. The black one is for enhanced bass, the red one for balanced sound.

 

The black nozzle is a bass cannon. Great for a basshead, but not for detail.

 

The red nozzle is impressive. Some very nice sound out of it. I'll be keeping the red one on.

 

Pretty damn good for $12. Exceptionally actually. I like them better than the Narmoo RIM (corecool)

The VPulse has been around longer than Don Scorpio as a company. Doubt they are the same.

Look what i found in google:

In theory it should be the same, but I will know for sure in 2 weeks ;) 

post #1888 of 6177

I'm about to try the Pistons v2.1 through using MisterTeo, and might as well give the Awei ES-800M and KZ-A1 a chance. The first i'm ordering directly from xiaomi, so I asume they are okay. But the last two are there several editons. Prices seem to differ quite much especially on KZ-A1 are there any fakes or different version which should be avoided? Search for different ES800M.

Tbh I see no reason getting the other two if you're getting the Piston's since they're superior to both.
