I've bought 2 pairs of Xiaomi Piston 3 Reddot's and they've both failed within about 5 weeks of light use. Everything was fine then one day the left headphone went REALLY quiet. The right was fine and I tried them on various other pieces of audio equipment including my pc and there was no change. I decided to try a second pair and was gutted when after about 5 weeks these developed the exact same fault!
With the setup on my phone they were ideal as I could change the volume, skip forward and back and play/pause my music without having to get my phone out - especially handy when cycling.
I'm not prepared to shell out again, but I can't see anything else for that kind of price (£10-15) that has in inline remote with anything other than just the one button. Any suggestions?
