The Xiaomi Pistons Thread - Page 40

post #586 of 2538

Purely out of curiosity, for those who got the updated Pistons 2.0 aka Pistons 2.1, did you guys mod it?  Just wondering if you would get even better sound or would it make it worse.

Wait.  Better than Fostex TE-05?  Are you serious man?  I looked at your profile, you've got the word "EPIC" beside your M90, now dead (sorry!) FX850, and the TE-05.  You're saying these Pistons 2.1 are on par in EPIC-ness?

No need for the mod. They are still bass heavy, but the whole reason to mod was to try and squeeze out more treble. It's already there in the "2.1" version, so no need.

Hmm.  Very interesting.  I wonder if Xiaomi reads head-fi (or other sites like this) and took note of the mod and decided to update.  Except they made it even better than what the simple mod does.  If that was the case I'm looking forward to 3.0 if that ever comes!  :gs1000smile:

My te-05 were epic and still are , they do speed and sound staging better but also my te-05 is also burned in for 100hrs as well.they piston are not so bassy but very well textured for they cheap price very close in bass response to my fx850 . Also the piston has zero hours of burn in and they sound wonderful, amazing,epic and that is if you get the latest version of them which penonaudio.com sells 😎...what if burn in improves the bass and soundstage 😲...then they will be on par with the best dynamic driver iem I heard (JVC HA-FX850).😎...JUST MY THOUGHTS 😁

*Jaw dropping*

 

Did you have version 2.0 from ibuygou?  How much better is "2.1"?

post #594 of 2538
I have the 2.0. Probably a fake because I think it's garbage. Terribly veiled/recessed sounding and one of the most uncomfortable IEMs I've ever worn: However, I'd be willing to give some authentic 2.1s a chance if they are half as good as the high praise they just received.

I wasted $60 on two fake sounding pistons from inshoes and then I was like😒....then I asked my friend to order the real piston gold from xaiomi and they did I told everyone on headfi so people could order them with confidence 😁...they slaughter the fake ones easily and almost as good as my favorite dynamics the jvc ha-fx850 😁
post #596 of 2538
They still are uncomfortable but not veiled at all....just order from penonaudio.com(aka bigbargineonline).😁😊

As I mentioned before, I ordered it from Amazon (US) and received it in 10 days from China (Zhengnan'shop): www.amazon.com/Xiaomi-Piston-Earphone-Headphone-Headset/dp/B00HUNUOJW/ - $24.90 and these are a new version of 2nd gen (with S/M/L and shirt clip).  The real deal and mind blowing sound!!!

Can it compete with W40 on the same level? 

 

Since mochill claimed it is almost as good as FX850, and better than TE-05

You'll need to use a forwarding service like Mistertao.com to purchase from taobao, but there is no better seller than the source themselves. It'll come out to about $22 or so.

 

I don't see them on xiaomi.tmall.com.  Do you have a direct link?

 

EDIT:  Is this it?  Price is 19.64.

If so, is it the "Rose Gold" or "If Commemorative edition"?

 

Also, what is the weight?
