Pistons or Beats Tour ?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

i'm looking for earphones with a clear and top quality sound for everyday use (music, and calls)

and i'm thinking about two options:

 

the Xiaomi Pistons V2

and the Beats Tour V2

 

what will be the best option for me?

I don't know about the Pistons, but as with all beats products except for the new studio, they are heavily overpriced, so if you want to get max out of your money, don't even think about the beats.

You should probably widen your options. Give us a budget and criteria!

You know the beats tour's are 150 bucks, right..? So these won't even fit your budget, unless you buy fakes, but these usually have horrible quality.

If you are willing to go a bit above your budget, I've heard great things about these IEMS:

http://www.amazon.com/Monster-Turbine-Performance-In-Ear-Speakers/dp/B001LNO722%3FSubscriptionId%3DAKIAJ7VMODKUTIUWFY2Q%26tag%3Dheadfiorg-pro-mct-li-t-d-20%26linkCode%3Dxm2%26camp%3D2025%26creative%3D165953%26creativeASIN%3DB001LNO722

 

But, if you don't want to go above your budget, try the headphone buying guide:

You might find some nice IEMS here, that also fit your price.

One thing though, which I cannot sweat enough:

 

Always try before you buy!

 

Not everyone has the same music taste, some like highs and some like bass, so someone might find some IEMS good, others think it's crap. So please, try before you buy.

Mhm.. I see you want to buy some beats tours or Pistons.. I know the beats have a lot of bass, so you're looking for something that's bassheavy, am I right?

Do you also want a microphone with controltalk in them? Because the beats tour have that.

 

For some IEMS that are good, and bassheavy, try these: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Shure-SE215-In-Ear-Isolating-Earphones/dp/B004U9NH3E

 

Edit: I've just found a killer-deal, these: http://www.padacs.com/cart/product.php?id=72

IEMS are bassheavy, and have a mic, and are from 50 bucks to 10 bucks.

It seems to be the site of the creator of the IEMS, so I think it's legit. I'm jealous that I don't like in the US to buy these for so low haha.

But what kind of sound do you want? Much bass, or more focused on the mids and highs? Not every IEM (Which stands for In Ear Monitor) is the same. You have a lot of IEMS which are the same quality, but have more or less bass, or focuses more on mids or highs.

Please try to describe your preference, because without it you might buy one that you don't like at all.

I'm not a over-bass lover.
I'm looking for a clear sound then bass.

Sure bass is important, but I prefer a more detailed and clear sound.

By the way. . My budget is now 100$

Sounds like Havi B3 Pro MK1 will best suit your sound preference. it beats IE80 in clarity and overall SQ.
