There are two versions, same price.  ""Rose Gold" and "If Commemorative edition".  Do you know the difference?

EDIT:  Is this it?  Price is 19.64.

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

 

Also, what is the weight?

The commemorative edition is a brand new presale that goes on sale the 13th. Nice catch. No idea if anything is different about it

 

Feel like being the first one to get it and share? It's the same price.

I would also try and get these from Xiaomi Tmall, with a Taobao-agent like you guys. But which agent would be best to use for the Piston?

 

If I input the link into mistertao it wants to charge 120 RMB instead of 99 RMB and then charges upon that. I have no idea about which weight it is, but if I input 250 grams, it comes to $28.54 US. I have no idea if this is right?

Perhaps it will come in a white cardboard instead of brown? Seems like something with that IF Design Award.

But ut oh! There's a Piston 3!! But I can't translate to see how they're different.

Can't be P3?  Though i have no idea about the content of that page, isn't it half of the price of P2?  Maybe its a lite version without in-line remote?

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

 

Can $25 single dynamic driver headphones compete with $500 quad BA driver IEMs?  Not really, but it can surely compete with a lot of other $75-$100-$150 headphones for sure.  W40 sound is fuller, with more details and better separation.  But when you compare Pistons to Klipsch S4 or Senns CX300 or even CX985 or some single BA drivers like UE600 or SE215 - it will have a wider soundstage, deeper bass, and the same (if not better) details in mids and highs.  Plus, if you factor in Pistons sexy design and full Android compatibility (the volume up/down control works perfectly with my Galaxy Note 2, play/pause/call single click works great, double click to skip next, and triple click to skip prev, long click to start Google NOW) - they are a fantastic value!!!

 

Someone mentioned in the past these are designed by Dunu?  If this is true, I just wish Pistons 3 would be hybrids priced under $50 ;)

Why can't it be the P3? It clearly says Piston 3, and that is the official site.

Here is for your enjoyment a gallery of Xiaomi 2 pictures.  I wrote my full review on XDA where I publish all my reviews (http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2671888)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

With V-Moda Faders tips (narrower opening, deeper bass, and roll off of highs versus original tips with a wider opening and a bit less deep bass and brighter mids/highs).

Oh, I was just kidding.  I can't read what it says in there anyway :)  I just assume that P3 won't be half the price of P2?  Maybe I need to run auto-translate to read more about these P3s on that website.

Scroll further down. That one was made in 2010 and included with their phones at the time. They have a few models that they include with their phones. The new Pistons come with the newest MI3 phone I believe.

Nice pictures as always twister6!

Yeah, I think the one without the clip and the one with are both originals. The company just decided to throw in more frills. And I see the label on the cases with both versions are tan. Mine has plenty of bass, but great mids and highs too. Now I believe is non-fake, but I wouldn't go the mochill route of suggesting it nearly beats $300 to $500 earphones. Under $100 it competes well though.

The Pistons are funnnnn. When I want analytical, I throw on my Havi. When I want nice bass and something easy to drive, I throw these or the Somic MH415 on.

Anybody?
