Penonaudio, or Bigbargainonlone (eBay)

Same seller

Buy your iems from him. It's no hassle, great service, and guaranteed authentic.

You can't go wrong with Penonaudio

At this price, they absolutely have to be fakes.

Hey guys,

ย  ย  ย The Pistons 1.0 review is up! Well, I thought I'd keep it brief, but I guess that was a little too blunt, now, wasn't it?ย :pย Anyway, since I've got nothing else to do, I decided to go forward and link you guys to the review. Here's the link below:

http://thatbeatsguy.blogspot.com/2014/07/xiaomi-pistons-10-legends-prequel.html

ย 

ย  ย  ย Also, thank you guys so much for helping me out in my audio journey thus far. You've all helped me learn of a lot of new things in the audiophile world, especially the world of Chinese-made headphones and IEMs. So yeah, this is a little tribute to all of you guys!

ย 

ย  ย  ย I hope you like my review!

Hi, I live in china and speak chinese. I recently boughta pair each of the gold v2 pistons and older steel ones on taobao for about 6 and 7 USD each. I contacted the seller and he said they were a loss leader for getting noticed and building reputation. my chinese friend in IT thinks they're maybe overstock or something. to me they sound better than my JVC HA~500S so if they're fake you'll have to be more knowledgeable than me to be 100% sure. At this price, I think most will be fake and I got lucky. the real v2s are only 99rmb, so if you're paying international shipping it's hardly worth going cheaper and taking a chance.

4.85โ‚ฌ with free shipping, 2 days left. Shall I risk it? According to the OP, these are one of his favourites.

I got mine straight from the Xiaomi website.

Just ordered the ttpod t1E and the dasetn mc5 special quantity ear buds ๐Ÿ˜Š... If you sign up on dasetn.com and place a order for the mc5 you can get then for $10 versus $20 which it will be after the 2000pcs sell... And can't wait for the ttpod๐Ÿ˜Ž... Got them in the sexy purple from penonaudio ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜ the ttpod is supposed to have better efficiency and better low end response plus better resolution and bigger soundstage ๐Ÿ˜ƒ... So its gonna be awesome and mostly better then the tenore ๐Ÿ˜Ž

So just read it uses biocelloluse drivers instead of synthetic nano material in the t1 original, that's why it will have better textures and response for sure ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Why would they be "mostly better" than the Tenore? Aside from the potential variances in Tenore I thought the old Ttpod was inferior and this one one is only $10 more. Might be right there but not convinced in it being above any of "big three" HAVI/OSTRY/Good Tenore just yet.

Yes these 3 stooges are really making waves here in our community.....talk of the town. I reckon more inputs on t1E though. And another thing im wondering how ttpod got the sourcing of B-C.........

Sidy hk2 came in!!!

First impressions...

Got a little driver flex inserting them just like the hk1. No biggie, I will just have to lift and insert.

Very forward mids that sound pretty good. Sounds warm, with enough bass. Treble is present and not too hot. I do wish cymbals and high hats came through a touch more. Treble is different from hk1, it sounds much more natural and less metallic, while maintaining the sound stage I fell in love with on the hk1. After listening to it for 5 minutes I've already ordered another pair. These punch WAY beyond their $20 price tag! Bass is warm and present without being overpowering. More musical than analytical. Pianos sound amazing, guitars sound beautiful.

Sounds somewhere between the dm2 and the hk1.

I think I'm gna really like this thing! I gotta give them a little burn in time and good listen and I'll post more impressions. I'm pretty confident 50 hours of burn in will yield positive results. So far so good though, I'm looking forward to spending some time with these.

Head fi over and out!
