  • I bought a pair of the Piston 3 about 7 months ago (all indication is not fake) - which worked fine until recently but now the volume is very low and unadjustable on various different devices!
    What would cause that problem?

    • Ear wax either inside or on the grating, loose connections, bad drivers.

      • I had same issue, twas earwax. I submersed the earpiece minus the rubber insert in some rubbing alcohol and that fixed it. On my old Apple in-ear plugs I could remove the little mesh and submerse that and it would clean the small amount of grot accumulated.

    • Wow I thought it was only just me. Also have this problem

  • Anybody know if Everbuying Piston 3s have a single dot in the volume control or two/three bars when you feel it on the volume stick?
    I have a Piston 3 from Gearbest and it has three so that disappoints me a bit but the whole package is very genuine.
    They said it's like that iirc because its a updated model but it still irks me that mine has three bars.

    If you check miui forums the mods and posters there are probably uninformed and say everything that doesn't have a single dot is fake.
    I personally agree that mine sound the same as http://ko.goldenears.net/board/5758479 measurements.
    They use thousand dollar mannequin measuring equipment (Bruel & Kjaer Type 4128C HATS $25,000+ usd or second hand http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/172097978877).
    They sound boomy like my Sony xb90ex http://ko.goldenears.net/board/3041402 I own other headphones that don't have exaggerated bass.
    So my Gearbest Piston 3 is (maybe) genuine except for the three bars which bothers me.

    • I see this http://www.aliexpress.com/item/Hot-Sale-Xiaomi-Piston-3-Head... on Aliexpress has single dot for only US$9.98 or (US$4.79 pay by app)

      • Although manufacturing for audio products is quite cheap, I don't think you get a genuine item with this price.

        I bough several from a Chinese seller on eBay, were obvious fakes and got refunded.

        I could do a YouTube video comparison between fake and real one day ;)

        • What do you mean? On Xiaomi's own website it is US $ 14.99 RRP… the wholesale price is probably just around $10 USD.

          At this price it's not really worth duping and that's probably the beauty of Xiaomi products.

          I bought a pair from Gearbest before and even though it had the 3 bar thing mentioned above feel and sound quality was on par with my old Sennheiser headphones so I can safely assume it is genuine.

        • @Serapis:

          I was commenting on the US$4.99 price from AliExpress.

          I don't think Everbuying is selling fakes ;)

        • @datafellows: Ohhhh sry, yea I never buy anything from Aliexpress or dhgate, have ordered 2x items from each, both turned out to be fake

  • Are these authentic? I'm looking to buy another pair as the cable on my existing pair is coming apart. Are these any good?

    • These are awesome :)

      I have tested many brands and XiaoMis come to the top even people doubt it due to the price ;)

  • Thanks OP. Bought 2.

  • This or the xiaomi hybrids?

  • how do these compare to other earbuds for around this price? never heard of this brand

    • Just google? there are 1000's of comparisons and reviews around. Seems they compare with $50-100 headphones such as ~$100 shures or sennheiser cx 180 or 300, momentum in-ear etc. For < $20 you can't go wrong. Especially with comply T200 replacement foam tips

      I mean for everyones benefit, just look at the headphone list comparison chart. for sound quality they are not far behind the bloody $450 + shure hd535s. and above the MeElectronics M9. I have both of those. I really like the M9 which were only ~$13 via OZB. So if the piston 3 sound better then I'll be happy for spending $17( + $30 on comply foam tips)


  • bought a pair after reading about all the hype on headfi. I also have a shure se530 but want these (along with hd25's) for the train to just throw in the bag

  • needed headphones yesterday and had none handy. Shan't happen again now :)

  • Has anyones arrived yet? I'm still waiting…

  • Received mine today. Sound really good!

  • Ordered 2 and got mine today.

    Have been listening and comparing them to Sony's XBA3 and ATH M50s. Actually is quite bass heavy, and a touch not as refined. Highs are not as clear, but great for price.

  • To those who have received their order, are they real. The posts in the most recent deal for these indicate that they are not real. Just want to know before I bite the bullet and make a purchase.
