I have a pair of these from either GearBest or one of the other similar sites, and I'm very happy with them. Super comfortable to wear, and they sound very nice indeed. They aren't quite as bassy as the old Piston Mk IIs, but they're super clear and have a touch more bass than their current Piston Mk IIIs. The metal casing feels super solid, and at this price they're excellent value.

Can anyone comment on the durability of these? I seem to get through cheap headphones pretty quickly.
#6
seem pretty durable, cable is braided. had mine 6 months and they're as good as new.
#7
Oh. Braided cable you say? Does that mean there is a ton of cable noise if it is ruffled or rubs against clothing etc, e.g. when you are walking or running?
#8
Yep had mine a good while now and still working perfectly with no signs of wear (despite being chucked in my work bag without care or attention).

Going to order a second pair - thanks OP - this is a steal for hybrid armature drivers.

Haven't had that problem so I'd say no

I have used these - very pleased.
#11
thanks op, ordered and excited to hear the clarity in sound :):)

Thanks - if you have a card which does free foreign currency conversion then pay in Japanese Yen to get it even cheaper (1557 JPY from the HK store which is £10.86 on yesterday's Mastercard exchange rate).
#13
Ordered on the basis of the love on here, and the 4K reviews on their site.
#14
well worth getting, anyone tried the three driver pro version of these?
#16
I've got a pair of these, they cost me about 15 quid and I've been very pleased with them. I'd buy another pair in a heartbeat if mine broke.

Heap added, OP. :)
#17
Hybrid Pro there, slightly different (newer) model I believe.

(though I see it might be a reply in context to the prior comment)

Not as cheap - £20.03 when I looked last.

Hmm these aren't bad but sound a lot more veiled compared to the Piston 2 in my opinion. Not bad for the price but I found myself going back to the old Pistons every time.

if your on the fence on wether to buy these or the new three driver ones i would say get these, reviews are better than the newer ones and these look better imo. Don't know why they going downhill with every update tbh.

Cool, ordered!
#22
Tried that, during checkout it was 1557JPY, which is £10.81, but got charged £12.17 on my Halifax Clarity card. Still, thanks OP!

I've ordered the three driver model to give them a go. Very impressed at the dual hybrids (use in my iPhone For work calls and personal for music both happily). Will report back!

Can either of their controls be used on iPhone? Reluctant to order if I can't!

Dual drivers: middle button will play pause and skip track. The other two buttons don't seem compatible, but Xiaomi do say they are Android primarily.
#26
Well they came after just 9 days and are excellent! Superb bass :D
#27
Not sure why they this is expired - still same price. Ordered my pair 9 days ago and they arrived today. First impressions - they seem excellent, great build quality - thinking of buying another pair as a spare.

Yes - you can pause music / take calls using the middle button but the two volume buttons do not work on a iphone.

Mine arrived last week, and sound very similar to the dual driver model.

Not listened extensively, but, the inline remote is better quality for one and the only subtle difference I can perceive so far is perhaps a slightly improved sound-stage; nothing too significant so far in limited listening.

The packaging is very premium in comparison the the dual version (which wasn't bad at all), but most British ears are likely to need the biggest silicone buds as opposed to the size that are on there when shipped.

These are meant to have noise cancellation (triple driver), but I've not been able to do a proper test of this so far - I can still hear a bit of outside noise, but without comparing with the dual drivers back-to-back, I can't say how effective - if at all - this feature is.

If on a budget, the dual drivers at £12 shipped are seriously unbeatable for the money. Triples at £20...will need to decide over time.
