You can't go wrong with authentic Pistons.  I have the 2.1 version and couldn't be happier.  They are currently my main IEM.

I just bought from http://www.ibuygou.com/ and I live in BC.

i got mine at ibuygou.com and they were like $28 shipped to the Western US.  i want to say they've gone up a couple bucks since i received mine back in March.

And another +1 for penonaudio - you can definitely trust them!

From twister6's post, the metal is a lighter shade (less bronze/brass color), logo stamped onto the shirt clip and a pouch.

I still prefere the Mh1c more.

So Penonaudio is not my option because they accept Paypal only and I don't have one. I'm looking to ibuygou's website and they have this:
http://www.ibuygou.com/p-original_xiaomi_piston_earphone_updated_version_brown-5708-cad.html

 

It's indicated there that it's an "updated version", but I'm sure if it is the XP 2 or not. Can someone verify it?

Does anyone know if the If Commemorative editions are still on sale anywhere legit? There are a few places on Amazon but they look somewhat shady. I already order a standard 2.0 from ibuygou but would like to have the other one as well.

From the pictures, it's definitely the Pistons 2.0. I'm seeing red flags because they don't have their own pictures, though -- just recycled crap from the poorly-translated international Xiaomi sites. Tread with caution if you want to place an order on these.

IIRC there were some pairs of IF Pistons left in Penonaudio's stocks, but you will have to ask for them when you place an order.

I'm joining the club. My IF Pistons arrived today and wow, I love the sound out of the box using my HTC One. The bass and clarity is way better than my SHE3590 and the HTC earbuds. The build quality and isolation is also great smily_headphones1.gif I can't wait to compare them to the Zero Audio Tenore. Great job Xiaomi
post #1810 of 2456

are the ones from penon audio or ibuygou the 2.1 versions?

post #1811 of 2456

I have now given away 3 pairs of these headphones...2.1s to friends.  They tend to like v shaped signature and appreciate the build for little cash.

This may be old but the thread is so long that it's hard to do a search - what is the difference between the 2.0 and 2.1 versions, apart from the clip and packaging? I'm more concerned about the differences in sound.

If they both look identical from the back ports to the front wide nozzle? Then definitely, there should be no difference in sound.  :wink:

They're close in size. The pistons are just a bit bigger. I hope the pictures help
