Yup that's an authoritative figure. Maybe my expectations are in the wrong place because I generally enjoy multi-BA drivers that are at least 5-10 times the price of these. So maybe I'm being overly harsh.
If you like the M50 type of sound then this thing might be your cup of tea. I just generally prefer monitor type sound. And small soundstage really really I mean REALLY bugs me.
I totally agree. The Piston 2 I had sounded really similar to the M50. With that said, I found the bass to be within tolerable levels. It also doesn't have the sibilance of the M50 but the midrange suckout is definitely noticeable.
By the way, what tips were you using? By the looks of it the Piston 3 has the exact same tips as the old one, which I found to be terrible. I had a hard time getting a good seal and they'd fall out of my ear if I wasn't stationary. That and the recessed mids is what made me give away my Piston 2.
