 If that fails, buy another, these are super cheap.

Those are both budget IEMs, so they are for the newcomer who wants to try a better listening experience than cheap earbuds. But instead of extremely praising the Pistons for its unatural sound, I would suggest to get both the Pistons AND the monoprice wich has a flat response. Imagine if the Beat by Dre headphones were sold super cheap, I am pretty sure we would have the same hype like we getting here for the Pistons. Of course I understand the build quality of the Pistons is great, and the case it comes with is superb, but the mids are just not up there.

 

Different people like different sounds, and what I am saying is you should test and see if you prefer more "V shaped / colored / fun" or more "flat". Lucky you, both the Pistons are monoprice are super cheap so you can try both at same time.

 

If you prefer having clearer vocals, and instruments like piano or guitar or trumpet, then the HifiMan RE-400 is now at 79$. It is pure flat reference response and you will hear stuff you didnt think possible (not just boom tsshhh from EDM).

 




Monoprices are decent sounding iems and have a great price but i cant recomend them, the cable, the housing, very tip depending, etcetcetc makes them hard to use and recomend. I give them a lower rating not because of sound but because all of the cons they have , hard to ignore. The Pistons comes with a nice packge, tips are nice, just plug them and thats all, not the best sound but not that bad all and for the average people they will sound very good.

All of my MP's have diferent sounds or some kind of problem.

Yes I have tried a different source, any fix?

Unfortunately, aside from buying a new pair, no. You're out of luck by this point. You could reterminate them, but that'd be pointless since we're dealing with a 20 dollar IEM.

I just bought these, and i broke them after 22 hours. I even paid 34$.
So, the problem is, i dropped my phone when my pistons were plugged in, which bent the jack. I tried to fix it, it's not bent anymore. I can get clear sound from both ears if i push the jack deep, but whenever i move the jack, i get no sound from right ear. Any suggestions?

Do you have any access to soldering iron and flux? If you have try get another 3.5mm jack and solder to the new jack Or cut the wire and try resolder back to the jack. Well, getting a new jack is better though.

if there are no physical damage seen,get RMA or get a new 3.5mm jack and replace the broken one......be aware its a 4 pole jack.
