Yeah, I've heard of people getting fake pistons, it's a shame for those who miss out the real thing. What do you think of the pistons so far??

They remind me most of the Turbine Pro but the bass is a little recessed and the mids a little more pronounced. But man, for the price? To even be making these comparisons?
I found the stock ear tips a little too soft and has sealing issues. Used a spare set of Audio Technica medium Black silicone tips and they work great for me.
Packaging was great and the winder was a nice feature that I didn't need at this price point, but it's there.
Overall, a big winner for me.
I'm extremely happy with them. I haven't heard of the Turbine Pro Copper? I assume they are a bit more expensive?
I haven't used too many ear tips, but these ones are actually the first ones to fit my ear good. I use the small one due to my tiny ear canals, so that's a big plus. And as you said, the design is great for a 20$ pair of headphones!
