Hi, sound for my Xiaomi Piston Gold II significantly improved after 55 hours of burning disk from TARA Labs. You burn your Xiaomi Piston Gold II?
PS Stock eartips very bad :(
Friends,i was ;looking to buy the IF version on Xiaomiworld,but they are out of stock.
Instead,the only modelavailable is this one : http://www.xiaomiworld.com/original-xiaomi-piston-earphone-updated-version-brown.html
just to be sure,this model is the 2.0 version ,sonically identical to the IF ?
Thanks in advance guys!!
You should add this^ to your sign.
But Bhazard said the 2.1 edition sounds better than the 2.0. Who to believe?
Exactly. The iFs that I have, which are basically a special edition 2.1, sound the same as with the 2.0.
They aren't exactly discontinued, you know -- there are still some 2.0 pairs in ciculation, ending up in 2.1 packaging, and vice-versa.
Just received my Xiaomi Piston (obviously v. 2.1), and I'm very pleased with the sound and the overall quality.
In Germany it seems you can only buy them from one shop via amazon.de. I paid € 21,90 including tax which I consider ok.
They are still burning in, but I like the sound out of the box, although the v-shape isn't so much my preferred sound signature. Might try the foam-removal-mod one day.
This is my setup for outdoors sports. 27g.
One early observation: With these IEMs, I hear MP3 compresson artifacts in the treble very clearly. I guess I'll do myself a favor and workout only with lossless audio!
As you can see in the photo, I need to use a special adapter with the iPod shuffle (3rd generation), because the Piston's buttons don't work here.
