FINALLY! 

 

I'm glad to see Joker hears what we all -- I mean, most of us -- are hearing.

Complys (preferably the T400) for improved isolation and a better seal for some

 

Also give the M-sized tips in the Pistons' box a try if you happen to have a "2.1" or iF Edition pair. Provides a deeper fit than the Pistons' default tips.

 

The small Philips SHE-3590 tips worked well for me, too. Consistent fit and seal even if you jab them into your ears real quick.

 

Hope this helps.

Just wondering, does this IEM suit for Jpop and Pop Genre of song? How was the bass on this thing?

post #1909 of 2168
I just successfully filter modded them using a thumbtack with a bent tip. The grills are relatively undamaged. It definitely opened up the mids a little and made the highs more airy. Still very bassy though. I definitely recommend the mod to everyone biggrin.gif

Sweet! I'm gonna pierce ALL my cans with a thumbtack! :wink_face:

Ok guys, now try blocking the back vent and see if that balances out the bass.

Don't block it out completely, though -- you will miss a lot of the sub-bass that the Pistons had. Try to cover them in a relatively thick material (two layers of vinyl wrap will do) and poke a tiny hole in the middle with a needle.

Since it seems that a lot of you are against all the modding, but trust me, it does work.

yup forgot to mention the pinhole, very important. Glad you know the modding knowledge Rin has passed on.

in Indonesia, in kind of forum seller said he guarantee 2 months replacement and 100%money back if it's fake, what do you think?

Also he was mentioning something about xiaomiworld, so i guess it might be bought from there?

Looks Legit to me because I watched youtube vids of Fake Pistons. Try to watch some videos of fake pistons on Youtube they're helpful. I think he's referring to Xiaomiworld.com, I'm still buying on Ibuygou.com(I don't have CC and Debit Card so I'm trying to use the Western Union Payment method) so try to wait for other responses from owners of pistons 2.

I watched it already but still not so sure, since the phone it self got CLONE quality( i got redmi), not replica or cheap sh*ts, it's 98% similar and super super super same even the specs and screen but it's FAKE. So I'm guessing that piston should have that replica quality too.

 

btw, i found a review that looks similar to my packaging, it was HK version of xiaomi piston but there's a little different, the box of the reviewer written xiaomi.hk since mine is xiaomi.com, so im guessing maybe mine just sort of older version or maybe newer than what he got there. But still lol...

 

btw thanks for response :) im waiting for other senior here to response

I thought the Pistons would be low 7s. Very surprised. Too recessed and boomy in the wrong places IMO
