Thanks for the information!  If I am buying iPods I will probably snag a few of the Pistons 2.0.  They look great, and from all the great impressions I am sure they will sound much better than stock earpods.

Lemme tell ya, these Pistons are way out of the EarPods' league. Like many of us said back in the Xiaomi Pistons thread, they could take on IEMs up to 100 bucks. But just wait 'til you mod them! :D

Also, don't forget to compare it to another budget king -- the Monoprice 8320.

I did compare last night. While Qb2 is more mid-centric and has more mid-bassy sound, Pistons 2.0 has laid back mids and quite linear in the bass department. The treble and bass on Pistons are more resolving and forward and faster on Pistons. On the whole Pistons is more resolving and detailed IEM than Qb2.

 

Hope this helps.

I would buy one for myself, but ear pain ... After I wear IEMs my ears bother me for several days >.>

Got to try these the other day. Amazing quality for the price!

Only thing I would change is file down the sharp edge on the back of them, as it was bothering my ear.

If you own the iF Pistons, which are sliver, that might actually be a good idea, since it probably wouldn't look too bad. :D I did that to my 2.0 pair and it looks like crap when you take a close look at it. Ah well...

What about this one? ( http://www.xiaomiworld.com/original-xiaomi-piston-headphone-paperback-edition-white-black.html )

I know that it comes in a cheaper box with less acessories, maybe the sound is the same?

Should i try it?

don;t know if they have the same Beryllium drivers, which make these sound so good

One guy on my local forum bought white plastic ones and they don`t sound like aluminium Piston v2.0/v2.1. Not sure though if those latter ones linked are plastic or aluminium.

post #45 of 156

Almost nothing :D

These white one looks cooler than the gold one...but maybe i`ll get the gold or silver one instead, if i get these cheapers i`ll be back :L3000: 

 

And how the gold v2 do againts the SoundMagic PL21?
