But are they actually any good.
I have dual drivers, which are excellent. Are these similar?
Ordered, it's £2.31p. ✅
Ordered. Cheers OP.
They're good - not as good as the dual drivers one - but good.

How good do they need to be to be worth £2.31 do you think?
I've got really small ear canals and many of the earphones I buy just fall out when walking or doing activity. This happens even with the small buds put on - when earphones come with a set of changeable silicon buds. Does anyone know if these, or others, are these small enough. Thanks
Boom, have some!

£2.33 for this soldier

Well good enough nit to be instantly deemed a waste of money and you go out to buy a £20 pair instead because the £2 are like the ones you get free with those chinses knock-off handhelds
Heat, cheers

These are well made and feel a quality product, reviews are mostly good. But for most people £2.31 is the price of a coffee, so they wouldn't fret about wasting it.
1 per customer/account I think.
Ordered. Thanks OP.
I have too many.... Want to get the best xiaomi earphones.... Which is the best in sound quality?
I really don't think you can go wrong at this price

the last Xiaomi earphones I bought from this place were fake.

I have the same problem. Both the Panasonic RP-HJE125E and Exspect EX883 are perfectly fine for me. The Exspect ones don't last as long but i have owned the Panasonic ones for a few years without any problems. I'm not sure about these Xiaomi earphones but i have a feeling they will also fall out of your ears too. They have that kind of design to them.

I had it in my cart at 2.31 but when I checked out realised the price had increased. Cancelled the order. Not impressed.

Can't you just by some memory foam tips , they need to be compressed first before putting in your ear, then they expand and sit more firmly in the ear but still comfortable. Try Comply or Inears, lots if options on Amazon

These are rubbish with very poor sound quality.

Oh well. Looks as though Xiaomi have actually made something that is rubbish
The sound actually good IMO, lightweight and have microphone. Much better than any 10 or 15 pound earphone ( like sony ex110ap) i can buy in-store around me. Now i do not use it daily as i have Rha Ma600 but still keep it to use when running. Heat added

They increase the price if you try to discount it lol -

This is listed as £1 but I assume they sound like paper cups on string

I'm not sure as the main problem is normally getting the earphone 'ends' into the ear canal in the first place (as mine are very small). Because of this narrowness if I luckily can get a pair to fit, once they are in, they tend to stay in....If you know of some that come with foam tips that are very small in the first place then the foam tips might also help them stay firm...any recommendations.

I've never really inspected my wife's ear canals dimensions to date & your asking complete strangers who have never even met you??
I got a pair of these a few weeks ago, hoping they might take the place of my trusty old Sennhieser CX300s, which are in tatters. Unfortunately they have none of the resonance I was hoping for. For me they are no better than the headphones that come with any major smartphone. It's a great price for a spare pair though.

I've had two sets of earphones from Xiaomi - im currently using the dual driver set. Both came with three sets or ear buds and all are small. None of them are large enough for my ears so i guess they should fit smaller ear canals

Just used. Thank you. These won't be perfect but they are great back up headphones. I have been impressed by Xiaomi before.
I have some of these. A steal at this price point. However, if you want some that really punch waaaayyy above their weight try some KZ-ATE for about £7 the design is bizarre but they are extremely good even beating the Hybrid Dual drivers.

Do they beat soundmagic?



Can't compare to Sound Magic, however, I originally had Shure SE110 and over the last few years had been happily using Xiaomi Piston and Hybrids. I recently ordered and tried various in ears from recommendation on Head - Fi (Rock Zircon, Monks, Various KZ Acoustics - ate ed4, remax rm-610d, monoprice,jbm mj and a few more I can't recall right now).

I am using a Xduoo X3 player - which is awesome value for it's price point. I only rip to FLAC.

Anyhow, all I can say is; the clarity, sound separation, sound stage etc of the KZ-ATE is mind blowing for the price. I am hearing things in music that I never heard on tracks I have been listening to for years. So much so that I have ordered a few more pairs as back ups.

The other pairs I ordered at the time were all highly regarded for el cheapo in ears and buds. Whilst to my mind they all represented good value for money none came close to the KZ-ATE.

Funnily enough, I think the quality/sound of the headphones is overrated.

I've got cheap US$5 Skull Candy ear buds that sound just as good and there's less cable movement noise.

My first pair of Piston 3's sounded very decent but failed on the left channel after roughly 8 months. Contacted Gearbest and they said they'd send me out another pair if I covered the postage.

The new set are hardly used to be honest but for some reason the kevlar coated cable kinked at right angles...perhaps they sent a fake set?

Reviews od the ATE here:

head-fi.org/sho…ews

"So I just got these KZ-ATE with mic, the one I previously had was a soundmagic es18 and it sure was a hell of an upgrade.I can't say anything much about the sound quality because it's just so good.though the build quality can be improved however we'll have to expect a little bit higher price if they'd upgrade the build quality.oh and this is the first time that I've used a foam tip, and they're great for me, actually better than any silicon tip.The cable over the ear can be a hassle sometimes, just use an earhook and it'll be good.Overall, this is a very great IEM, especially for the price. kudos to KZ."
