Anyone mind telling me if these Xiaomi Pistons 2.1(s) are fake.

    Just unboxed these Piston 2.1. My klipsch r6m are coming to an end after a year and a half, so I though I should buy a new pair of IEMs. They seem to sound normal, but I'm a bit paranoid concerning whether I got a legit or fake set. I've looked at comparison pics, but they seem to be for the 2 which to my understanding has slight differences from the 2.1.

    I took some shots on the One. Had a bit of trouble focusing because of the metal's reflection :p

    They look real to me, aside from the whole "white" thing. I was not aware that they made them in white.
    There are some tell-tale signs about fakes, but it seems that the signs are not consistent. It'll be hard to say.

    I actually do. I've heard a lot about the Pistons, so its nice to see how they compare. Also 20$ isn't really something I get to easily spend at 16 with several siblings.

    That's why I'm having trouble determining if they're fake. Signs seem inconsistent, but I can't right them off just yet

    I think they are Genuine.

    I'm from Hong Kong, and is also using XiaoMi earphones (Golden Edition)
    The package shown on ebay is exactly the same as my Genuine one.

    Besides, there are also other models available at Hong Kong. The seller also provide these models.
    You may check out the below page to see what models are available in HK.

    more to godlycadaver's point, why do you care? Do you like them, do they sound ok? If so, then great ...you got a nice sounding pair of headphones for a cheap price. And if you lose them or they break (or your cat chews on the cord like my Andy did with my real or fake@ss pistons I bought on Am@zon...), you really won't care. You'll just sit back, smile to yourself and order another pair.
