Great deal , but wouldn't recommend because i got my in August 2015 , and then broke after 6 months. the sound just went really quite and was unpleasant to listen to.
Mine have been perfect. Excellent sound and great price.
Mines went through the wash and are still working!
I bought mine a few months back and I think it is amazing
Great headphones. The updated dual-driver model is even better at a couple of £ more...

Excellent headphones, beat the pants off a lot of higher priced earbuds I've tried.
Now £9.33

Are these fake?

Then can't you buy them, tell eBay and then keep both product and money? (happened to me before unintentionally)

What's the point?! The headphones will be rubbish anyway....so you aren't really gaining anything.

Just buy the Piston's 3's for a few quid extra...or get the cheap Piston 1's for £2.50 or so from Gearbest.

Don't know but definitely not worth it

I don't need them, just saying :P
These or KZ ate? I'm confused. Are these better than beats on ear? (Don't bash me I'm just using as reference)

Here's a reason not to do that...
If you raise a case with Ebay/Paypal, then that'll almost certainly result in human intervention. That intervention costs money. We pay for that intervention via Paypal fees...
SO, if you don't like Paypal charges going up and up, don't add to the Paypal dispute caseload

Comment of the week. All that effort to get a free pair of...fake earbuds.

Do you have a link to them by any chance?
I had a set of the Piston 3 Youth edition which were very good indeed but I lost them a couple of weeks back. sound was very good for the price.
There is no way I would ever buy headphones online from eBay or any sellers in China like Gearbest (even if it's from the EU warehouse). They are almost guaranteed to be fake. I've got burned in the past with Sony headphones which were all the rage to fake back in the day and won't get done again. You won't believe how real they can make them look.
sorry I don't mean to sound like a **** but does this come with a mic built in with a mute button?

thanks

There are ways to check with Xioami I beleieve. And if you trust the retailer youre fine.
Just because the companies Chinese doesnt mean evverythings fake.
Went for the dual drivers instead for a couple of quid more. Thanks OP for this deal. As I only check HOT deals I missed the "chillier" other deal.
I should get them in time for my retirement.... in 25 years time.
They are great earphones for the price, paid £8 from gearbest a month ago

i have these, they are excellent.
Flac sounds even better!!!
These are a fantastic bit of kit. I bought mine from Amazon a few months back for 13 quid, so this is a decent deal.
So are the piston 3s being sold on GearBest fake? oO
Thanks ordered two pairs, already marked as shipped.

No - the £2.50 ones on Ebay are the fakes.

Did people get from eu or China warehouse?
If they got damaged they'd be like me on a Friday night - piston broke
I ordered a pair of these and a pair of the other slightly higher priced hybrid IEMs from Gearbest. At this price point you cannot get much decent off the shelf in the UK. As to whether you should buy from the EU or CHINA or HK warehouse depends on what you are buying and whether it is likely to be subject to customs duties. At this price there is no duty to pay so as they were cheaper in the CHINA warehouse I bought from there.
These are good value for money. only downside for me was they are equal length wires from the connection rather than the asymmetrical behind the neck style of sennheisers but the sound quality is just as good a my previous CX300 IIs for a fraction of the price.

As the original Xiaomi IEMs are retailing for just $16 dollars in China there is little point in them selling fakes. Now if these were selling for like $160 dollars retail and being offered for $16 then you should be able to work out that they may be fakes.
couldn't resist... not for that price.
These are amazing earphones for the price. Got to wait a while for delivery but well worth it. The next model up (dual driver ones) are £11.18 on special offer at the moment so I advise you spend the difference on them.
