Does the winder smell like chocolate?

I believe that every single pair not from Xiaomi themselves or Bigbargainonline are fakes.

 

The ones from Xiaomi that I ordered have the shirt clip and S, M, L on the inside. The chocolate smell is much stronger than my ibuygou one's too.

 

They really do sound similar however. I still have to A/B them to determine if they really are the same.

All I can say it sound very close to top tier ...if only the bass tightens up with burn in we'll have a killer😵😲😎

just because there is as shirt clip on some, doesn't mean the rest are fake.  manufacturers change packaging quite often.  the tell all sign will be the build quality and sound quality.  not some dinky shirt clip.

Hmmm ok now.. Just wondering.. I got my piston's straight from xiaomi.. Got the metal clip, metal filters are not recessed and markings on the tips labeled s,m,l.. But one thing, mine doesn't have those "L and R" markings..

Where is it located on yours?

They are killer iems. Everything gets better with burn in. Atleast 50 hours of burn in should do the trick.

I'm confused are the ibuygou ones fake or not??? it looks like they sound similar so are people just basing this off of the package contents?

Based on comparison pictures no

Quick A/B between filter mod and no mod

Seems like filtered the soundstage is a bit wider and vocals are a bit more full, without filter the mids and highs clear up a bit but you lose bass punch

Unfiltered much better for guitars / rock in general I feel

But this is without burn in as well

Using out of a FiiO X3 YMMV

Still cracks me up that no one knows which are real and which are fake.  Just not too long ago Ibuygou were considered genuine ones.  

 

I don't see how bigbargainonline would be more reputable than Ibuygou, an official partner for MIUI android.  Xiaomi phones uses MIUI android.

I'd trust Ibuygou than some random ebay seller.

 

Yes I know a lot of people use bigbargainonline for chinese products on head-fi but I rather go with an official partner than some ebay seller who's not affiliated with anyone.

Can't understand all of this too. Mine from Ibuygou are geniune. I've seen all of the photos, everything. They have to be genuine.

 

Completely diferent subject: how are you people feelling about the confort? I feel the housings touch my ears a bit too tightly and it hurts them after a while... Is there a way arround this?

They're a tiny bit uncomfortable for me

I've found wearing them with the wire facing up is a bit more comfortable but the wire is short so this is kind of difficult in some situations

Laying down even on my side though they're great they don't bother me like customs do

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?

Seems like it's very hard to get Tenore now.  Amazon.com has some from Japan sellers:

Since I can't get a good seal with the flimsy tips, the metal housing hasn't been a problem. But it would be with a decent seal.

Got mine from Xiaomi world. S,m, l, shirt clip, L and R markings (in light brown) inside the strain reliefs, chocolate smell.

They do feel more confortable with the wire facing up. But still... those sharp edges on the housings hurt a bit.
