    I'm jumping to the wagon guys. However, my Piston Hybrid will arrive around next year. T-T
    Since there is no official supplier yet in my country, I bought it through some group buy in local forum.
    I heard piston 2 before and piston 3, so far my opinion regarding them is good compared to the price.
    Great bass, OK mid, but little bit lacking high. But I can't complain when I know their price.
    I hope this piston hybrid will be better. :)

    Check out my Unboxing video of these IEMs. 
    These were purchased on the mi.com official website in China on the day of launch.
     
    I would like to confirm that the new packaging is indeed a cardboard box instead of the plastic case found with Pistons.

    Neither do they ship to Singapore when it comes to these new items. Hell they aren't even selling 3 on local xiaomi site either. Took them > 1/2 a year to start selling the Mi Note even.

    Its annoying how the official channels (Mi.com / Mi official Tmall) doesn't sell globally and we have to rely on global retailers. 
     
    There is a list of retailers here:

    I think it's a warranty issue. There is no warranty outside of the supported markets. And good luck with warranty from resellers unless it arrives DOA.

    Hi guys, can anyone confirm if buying a pair of these off GearBest is a good idea? I'm in Europe but everywhere i check i see mixed opinions about GearBest. I don't mind long shipping times, i just want to know if they are legit and not fakes?

    Thatbeatsguy did a really cool guide previously. I would choose one of these resellers that are verified legit

    I currently have the Pistons 3.0, should i get the KZ ATE or these? which would be better?

    I've been using GearBest as my #1 source for Xiaomi products and many other orders as well. So far I've received 13 Xiaomi products from them and I'm most certain they are all legit. If you look at the questions asked for their Xiaomi products the most common is "are these original Xiaomi?" to which they always reply that they are. They seem to be building a decent reputation for themselves and doubt they would knowingly sell fakes. Of course it's still China so I suppose anything is possible.
     
    They do sell some cloned products but I've never seen a case where they've misbranded an item. My basic rule of thumb is if they are advertising a product that's originally supplied by "example company" but the title doesn't mention anything about "example company" then it's a clone.

    Thanks, the only site on there I could see that had the new Hybrid IEM's was PenonAudio, albeit for €30
     
     
    Thanks for the reply, that's reassuring. I've seen some other people in this thread say they ordered off GearBest too, but I've come across many shills on review sites so I was wary.
     
    Also I'm not sure I understand what the difference between a clone and a fake is?

    Hey Everyone I ordered a pair from Geekbuying, is there any reason why I should be worried about them being fake?
     
    I see that other people on this site ordered piston models from there and were happy, but i don't see them on the list you just posted
     
    The reason i ordered them from there was that the original review had a link to the site.

    Hey everyone, I ordered a pair of these from Geekbuying. I am just wondering if i should be worried that they will be fake?
     
    I have read about other people ordering pistons from there and being happy, I do not see them on the list that was posted of reliable sellers?
     
    The reason I ordered them from there was that the original review had a link to them there.
     
    Also you think that it is even possible that fakes exist already? They only were released yesterday.

    Geekbuying is a legit site. I've bought many items from them in the past with no issues. Mine are shipping from there (both the hybrid and the new Mi Band 1S)

    Seriously, these IEMs are not yet on market and you are already affraid of fakes? Do you think fake industry really works that fast?
