Come on man, it's at least three good sellers mentioned in the last two pages of this thread.

That's the $1,000,000 or rather, $27 question.  I'm thinking about going with ibuygou.  The tmall/3rd party option sounds too risky and complicated.

I bought from the inshoes guy and they were fakes. He said they have a few suppliers. Maybe one is bad? Maybe he was just covering his backside. Don't know.

Point is, buy from one of the trusted sellers already listed in the past pages. Dont try to save $5. You'll likely get burned.

I have always wondered how these compare to the RHA MA 750 as they are in the $125 range. Anybody have both?

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.

same here....plus mine don't have L & R on, as it was pointed out earlier in the thread, the little notch on the R is my only sign.

You gotta follow the last few pages.  But anyway, as I mentioned the source I purchased mine from: www.amazon.com/Xiaomi-Piston-Earphone-Headphone-Headset/dp/B00HUNUOJW/ - got it in 10 days from China, $24.90 + $3.99 for shipping, and it's a real deal with pictures I posted on the previous page: http://www.head-fi.org/t/703651/the-xiaomi-pistons-thread/600#post_10336908

btw, on a slightly different topic since i see you have Monster iSport in your sig, I just got iSport Victory (Monster guys sent it to me for review) and they sound VERY good!

Bhazard said the newest version from xiaomi.tmall.com with L/R markings (I call it 2.1) is better than the Ibuygou 2.0 version.  More extended treble.

The amazon link from twister is supposedly real too if you don't want to deal with Taobao.

 

I think I might order the white box presale ones. I'll sell off my modded ibuygou ones, and then sell off my 2.1's, maybe.

Wait, did I miss something?  White box pre-sale, what is it?

 

Btw, when I was asking that Amazon seller, he said there was older and newer version of Pistons 2.  Original v1 was silver color, v2 golden color at first with notes next to eartips and no shirt clip, and last months they introduced an updated version of v2 with S/M/L marking and shirt clip.  Perhaps that one is 2.1?

There's going to be an IF Commemorative edition. They're having a presale for it now on their Taobao page.

I guess this white box is the new packaging showing the included clip that was not shown before and for everyone to know.. But still just the same.. Havent read anything new on the details just the clip that is shown.. IMO

Looks like best version or not issue just got a whole lot easier with the official site the only one to stock this latest edition for now, whether the others differ in sound or not. If others follow suit then great, if not well at least we have the access to the latest one through the official site
