Got my two pairs just now

Gonna try them out, having difficulty getting a seal

Recommendations on tips? And is there no L/R markers?

I'm very happy with the UE tf10 tips but I believe a lot of people use the Sony hybrids.

The right one has small indentation on the cable.

 

Small Sennheiser tips:

The 3-pack of smalls is gone, but you can still buy 2S+1M.

 

I have also tried these much cheaper but similar looking tips:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/321060412143

The medium and large tips here are almost identical to the ones in the first link.

But the small ones are much smaller - may be a better fit for some, may be not for others.

Hmmm just got the pistons from bigbarginonline and they look and sound better then the inshoes pistons for sure and the tips are labeled s,m,l and comes with a metal shirt clip and on the strain relief its also labeled with a l and r😎

I bought mine from ibuygou and didn't get a shirt clip, but they sound amazing

 

Using comply foam tips that I had from another pair of headphones, they sound ages better than my Audiofly AF56

 

Gonna mod one pair and leave one pair stock, see how they differ

 

So far with only ~1 hour of use, the lower ends of the spectrum are good, the mids/highs are kind of meh but let's see if they improve with burn in and/or mod

I was gonna wait and see if the Amazon dealer was legit but trying to save 5 bucks isn't a huge deal do I think I'll just go the safe way and order from ibuygou. Ive tried looking for reviews in the havi b3 pro on Headfi and couldn't find any proper impressions or reviews, do you guys know where they'll sell these and the zero audio tenores. On eBay there see to be plenty of basso but no tenores?

For those interested in buying the pistons 2 from the Amazon dealer, I just checked the site and under description this was POSTED About this item
''Dear buyers please notice that the Xiaomi Piston Earphone sold at low price(Less than $20) is 100% the fake copy one'' BEWARE PEOPLE THESE ARE FAKES!!!

There are a lot scattered around the Chinese / Asian Brand Info Thread (Headphones, IEMs, Amps, DACs) you could also ask there as a lot of people who've recently ordered the b3 pro should be receiving them.

I've also been looking for the Tenor's lately and I'll think they're only available from a few sources non Japan so I gave up on getting them.

I think the only person on here to have the Having B3 Pro's yet is bhazard. Check out this thread for more info about them:

Edit: aftermoon beat me too it. BTW I should have my B3 Pro's very soon now.

I wonder if the ones with the clip are still the same soundwise as the ones without it. Are yours from Ebay fakes? Here are the original ones compared to fakes:

Thank you afternoon, I'll do some research. Peter I look forward to your impressions once you get the havi b3 pro's, Btw where did you get them?
post #387 of 2671
I've got them from penonaudio.com aka bigbarginonline (eBay), trusted seller that I and many others here have used several times. Same place where mochill got his Piston's.

I already have the B3 Pro II wich I've modded pretty heavily and they are now very very good so I really looking forward to try the original Pro's.

Shirt clip? Do genuine pistons have shirt clips? I think you now have 2 pairs of fake pistons. Also there shouldnt be any marking of l and r.

post #389 of 2671
Yes mines genuine 😎 no recessed metal filter ...i think.the real ones have a L and R markings as well...they sound better then the inshoes pistons for sure which I got two fake ones😢
