Price is getting lower for these. A lot of "banggood for your buck". Audiophile quality for a minimal outlay.

Excellent reviews: head-fi.org/t/7…sor

Highlights:
Original Xiaomi in-ear hybrid dual driver earphones
Dynamic and two balanced-armature drivers, for detailed sound
More professional tuning mode with super fine and sophisticated design
Cable control high SNR 58dB microphone, better noise cancellation for clear calling quality
3-button wired remote
Come with 3 pairs of S / M / L size soft silicone eartips for comfortable wearing experience

I've never had a problem with orders from Gearbest. I just received the Xiaomi Piston 3's and delivery took a month but they are verified as genuine, sound great and amazingly cheap.

Good deal, I did check the prices, was tempted but didn't buy as I can't justify it. These went on sale just after I'd got my Piston 3's. What makes matters worse is I'm not a fan of the 3's sound, just not good enough compared to my soundmagic e30's.

I seem to just buy at the wrong time :), same thing happened with the Miband I get the old version and then the new one arrives. Wasn't too bad though, I just flogged it on ebay and ordered the new one.
For £12, might as well have these as back-ups for work.
Seem to have a decent review, many thanks !
what put me off was a 5mm jack plug

Yes you are correct i must have misheard her. Thanks
Mine arrived this week. Liking them so far. I'm sure there is probably better earphones out there but I doubt there's better £12 earphones.

They look like a very decent set with great build quality and where else could you get dual drivers for anything like this money? Xaiomi make top notch gear. I guess people are voting cold because of gearbest, though for me they always deliver genuine products reliably. A week ago these same earphones went pretty hot from banggood at £3 more expensive.

i don't understand why it is so cold. They are great piece of engineering especially for that price. other earbuds which are using that technology starts from 100 quid. I ordered mine week ago for the same money. GearBest sucks tho
just ordered thanks for your comments, heat added
Been using mine for a week and I think they are great... I'm not a sound engineer, but I think the sound quality is outstanding. The build quality is fantastic. I had to put the large size buds in to keep them sturdy... guess the Chinese have smaller lug'oles than us western devils.

You will be very, very, very .. .. .. very hard pushed to find headphone as good as these at this price... I'd say it impossible.
Read quite few reviews, not great earbuds.

I would rather listen to my Sony EX650, than save £30.

Not wasting money and time to wait for the delivery.

great thanks was just thinking I needed some new earphones and having used gearbest a lot I used some points and store credits so only cost me $7 thanks for pointing these out. Really like the xiaomi stuff I've used in the past.
Don't buy anything from this place. Ordered a tablet on the 16/11/15, payment taken on 16/11/15 its now 05/12/15 and the order is still just sat at "processing". I have contacted them and they say they don't actually have the item in stock, i asked to change to a different tablet, they said no and closed my case. They now won't respond to emails. Avoid at all costs.

Did you pay by paypal?
OK i'll take the challenge. Ordered let see... how good these are !!
don't think this one is much better than the piston 3rd, I think I can not feel any differences with two driver design.
Ordered.

I've only tried the Piston 3s, but they were possibly the best earphones I've used under £100. The only others that came close were a pair of Phonaks which were £80 and the only pair that were clearly better were Shure SE530s, which at the time were well over £200. It's phenomenal how much value there is to be had here.

Please don't think that these are even remotely comparable to the vast majority of cheap earphones you can buy. It staggers me that you can buy hybrid dual-driver earphones for just over a tenner.
Ordered thanks,reading reviews on head-fi some noted change of sound over many hours.Thought this only happened with headphones but have noticed with in-ear types,maybe just a mind thing?

Who knows? Placebo effect? A bit of burn in should help them loosen up a bit. Enjoy your bargain dual drivers. I'm sure you won't be disappointed at this price. Looking forward to getting mine.
Just ordered, can't wait to receive
Ordered some piston 3 and tried them last night. Thought they were superior to my shure se110 that are still going strong after 5yrs or more. Have now ordered these.

Thx for posting
My ones just arrived this morning, yes it took some time (1 month exactly) but for £12 - so what !
The physical quality of the cables and connections are very good, actually quite unreal for this price point !

I need to break them in over the next day or two but I'm pleased so far
Mine have been dispatched from Singapore yesterday - I am looking forward to trying them, though I hope they arrive faster than yours did!
Mine arrived this morning,well made and sound is very good with plenty of detail. Listening on roberts personal radio so not best source.

When did you order?
Is gearbest the best place to get these from? I haven't used them before & have seen mixed reports. I like this style of earphone for comfort with the angle, Sony used to have this design. How are they sounding? I don't like my sound too bright like some sennheisers I've had and usually prefer the sony (i have a nice pair ex500) but am after a pair with remote for the phone on the move.

Having ordered several items from Gearbest I've had no problems. Good communication with photographic proof of posting, but unexpedited delivery does take about a month. If these hybrids are anything like the Piston 3's (which has been reported) they won't be overly bright or bassy, quite a neutral balanced sound, which is good.
Do the volume and track controls etc. work with Android phones?

EDIT: Think I've found a review which says they do, and have limited iOS compatibility:

They gave them 9/10 and said they were 'wonderful'.

After much procrastination (as usual), ice ordered these.
I struggle with earphones not fitting well so definitely not wanting to spend a fortune. And obviously the fit greatly affects the sound quality.
I have the monoprice ones discussed earlier, good sound but nothing out of this world and they don't stay in my ears either
Fingers crossed for these!
I ordered these on the 30th of December and I am still waiting for them to be shipped. They are still in the processing status till now so I hope they send these out asap. I knew gearbest would take long though!

Might be worth contacting them?

I also had a fairly rapid dispatch notification and picture of package.
These do seem to have required a period of burn in. The sound has improved immensely from when they arrived a week ago. To my ears they have a nice balanced sound. Clear bass, treble and vocals.

I like them so much I've ordered another set as a spare.

A little over 3 weeks. I often buy stuff from these places so I'm used to the wait.

Ah that's quite long. I ordered on the 30th, so hopefully they should arrive next week!
But the proper one from any uk store, not a Chinese cheap model

Piston 3s ear buds are tiny, even the largest size.. May be made for the Asian market
