Found 29th Apr 2016
They're back again! Slightly lower price than before
I bought a pair last time round and I have checked they genuine, and sound fantastic...rival much more expensive headphones.
Remote also working perfect on my galaxy s4

BTW mine were delivered in exactly 10 days (Ordered on 10th, came on 20th) which is not bad

Undecided if I should buy these, or pay an extra ~£3 for the Xiaomi Hybrid.

Thoughts?
Got two of these they are great.

I know, they are good.
Excellent headphones
know of any good bluetooth buds??
As these come from china do you pay any duty on these? Sorely tempted for taking on holiday rather than my favourites.
I stole my wife's earphones she got with her mobile, incredibly good for in ear.
Thanks op. Getting some as spares, as it looks like most are who have posted here.
Oddly adding the 8% discount code (GB0419) increases the overall total cost lol

That happened to me when I bought some Hybrids earlier, but for ~£15 delivered from within the EU I'm not too bothered.
I'd get the Hybrids, fantastic earphones.
8% Quidco too just because it aint cheap enough
Some dodgy website
Ordered to see what the fuss is all about. Thanks OP.
Great headphones, hot
Went for the hybrids last time, cracking headphones.

I didn't on mine. I ordered mine using Belgium Airpost and then added on the insurance.
Oh good there back instock on eu section too. Bit more but I want them by friday.
These sound good, but the weird angled design hurts my ears. They feel like there is too much earphone for the space available.

Hybrid with armature drivers are fantastic.
I'm by no means an audiophile, I have both Hybrid and piston 3. I'd say if you like a stronger bass and beat the hybrid is stronger in that regard. but for "accuracy" the piston 3 is more realistic. difference is noticeable but not a problem for ordinary use.
Having used Shure, Denon, SkullCandy, Sennheisser (all around the £20-80 range), these Piston 3's are the best I've ever used. Well worth a go for £9.
Are these likely to be any better than my LG QuadBeat3 (AKG)? Tempted to see what the fuss is about these Pistons or the Hybrids...

Even the famed soundmagic e10. Many claim these are better in some regards

Hybrids have better bass and build.
I was torn between these and the hybrids and opted for the latter. I obviously can't give my opinion on the Pistons but FWIW the hybrids are a fantastic set of earphones for the price point, I listen to a range of music to audio books and the sound quality is top notch.

The build quality is also very good, they feel very premium. I also own some xaomi power banks and these are also excellent products. Overall this is a good Chinese brand so I would have no hesitation buying these Pistons if I was a potential buyer.
Thanks OP, finally ordered the Piston 3. I prefer the accuracy over bass because I can just increase than in Poweramp.

Hope they outperform my current Sony MDR-EX50LP!

Same here - maybe after a while the pain will go - but after wearing them for a couple of hours I had sore ears too.

The sound is decent though not noticeably better than my sennheiser cx 300 which are extremely comfortable.
Unbelievably good headphones for the price.

Could anyone advise on a decent pair of earphones that don't go into the ear canal? Tried searching but think my wordings off so not getting very far.
