Well, the only IEM I have to compare the Pistons to are the Monster Gratitudes. And surprisingly, the Pistons are in the same ballpark.
When I first plugged them in they were bass heavy, but that cleared up in a very short time. They have a good amount of bass, but now they aren't bass-heavy. They do sound a bit warmer than the Gratitudes to me and have just slightly less detail. That's probably from missing the slight edge that the Gratitudes have to their trebles. The new Pistons are smoother.
I like them quite a bit. They're far better than the Deltas, which are the last inexpensive Chinese IEMs I had. For the cash, these are tremendously good IEMs.
Xiaomi Piston is under $10 shipped on Ebay and they're in the same ballpark as the Monster Gratitudes? Officially hyped!
Stay away from the $10 ones. They are fake. I bought one and it sounds terrible.
I listed a few sites some pages back with the official updated ones (gold color).
Don't get them all. Not all of them are good. A lot of them are however.
I should do an appreciation thread on them. On it.
Seems like Sidy is another KZ type of company, with their own custom designed models. Interesting.
Their new models seem to be the DM2 and HK1. The DM2 (flagship) looks really nice, with multiple filters, tips, and a nice tin to hold it in. 10.1mm driver.
This review of the DM2 is interesting:
"This is what I heard the best headphones, the quality is much better than my VSD1S! Shape is very strange, I like! Store service is good, all five! Look forward to new works!"

What about these? Looks really cool if you ask me!
Looks like we have a new awesome, cheap discovery on our hands, confirmed by multiple people. Hopefully mine arrive soon.
