    [​IMG] On the IbuyGou website it IS being called:  Xiaomi Piston Iron Dual Audio Driver Edition

    ...iBuyGou is not Xiaomi. And you can obviously tell from the official page of the hybrid (www.mi.com/quantie/) that there is absolutely no mention or evidence of any relation to the Pistons whatsoever.
    EDIT: And to add to my ever-mounting evidence-backed arguments, another third-party seller (http://www.gearbest.com/m-goods-id-261864.htm?islan=1) label them as the "Original Xiaomi Hybrid Dual Drivers Earphones In-Ear Headphones". And again, if you translate the original page, you see nothing that says Pistons on it. Seriously. You can try it yourself.

    [​IMG] Beatsguy, as I don't read Asian of any kind, are these Third Party Phones Xiaomi Brand at all? Or are they copies?

    I don't know if you're feigning ignorance or outright idiocy, but as far as I can see from here, I don't think I have any obligation to explain or prove anything beyond what I have already stated and what has already been stated in the first post. Since you really want some sort of confirmation behind the true name of this "Pistons 4.0," why don't you read the first post and see what the translation has to say about it? [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Beatsguy, I'm NOT asking you to PROVE anything. Simple Fact is the Translator isn't working for some reason on the links (maybe a windows 10 gliche) and I'd just like to know if they are real or not as I don't read Asian languages. I DON'T CARE IF THEY ARE PISTONS OR NOT, I just want to know if they are Xiaomi Brand. I've purchased them anyways.

    Well, can't you see the images nonetheless?
  7. TwinACStacks
    [​IMG] Yes I can see the images. They don't tell me what Brand they are though, well they probably do, But I can't read it.
    Thanx for your help anyways. I'll just have to wait and see what they sound like. After all, that is what's important regardless of branding. I was just curious, I wasn't disputing whether or not you were correct. Please pardon me if I appeared to come off that way.

    Gearbest has the best price and fastest shipping option for those of us in the US. 3-7 day ePacket USPS shipping option for $2 extra... $22 total.
    No one really bought into the Piston 2's at first when I was gushing over them, but then they started catching on. The 3's were an upgrade, but they didn't really sound or look engaging. I have high hopes for the hybrids. It can introduce many people to hybrids at an affordable cost.
  9. thatBeatsguy
    Can confirm. They do have excellent shipping. 
    Didn't they catch on after the reviews came in?
  10. slowpickr
    The Gearbest description states 1DD + 2BAs. However, if I read the OP correctly, it should be 1DD + 1BA. Correct?
  11. thatBeatsguy
    Yep. I just noticed myself earlier.
    @George-gearbest, would you mind looking into fixing the little tidbit there?

    as usual canada gets shafted in terms of shipping, we have either slow boat or 20 dollars for standard. Guess I will cut out the middle man and just buy it from xiaomi (with help of friend) for 16 USD and use e-packet to send it to canada. win win

    This is setting a new low price bar for a hybrid IEM.  Is it single or dual BAs and one dynamic?
  14. lisagorbin
  15. thatBeatsguy
    As @slowpickr has already pointed out, it is a single dynamic + single BA, so two drivers in all.
