    So I just received theses Earbuds in the mail this morning and here is my thought about them so far.

    First the Pros so far:
    • Very Lightweight
    • Great Bass that doesn't wash out the other frequencies
    • Decent highs and mids
    Cons so far:
    • Material is very plastic feeling, which understands lightweight, but feels like it could be easily broken
    • Not the loudest Earbuds around, improved over the day of use
    • Microphone is kinda quiet
    I haven't even had these for over 24 hours, but so far my opinion on them is they should be worth $30 at most, the material is like $10-15 earbuds and sound is equivalent to $35 earphones. The Controls are iffy and the built-in microphone could be a lot better.

    I'm glad you posted this. Mine are on the way but I've been having second thoughts for the past few days. I've already mentally returned them and ordered the silver bullets.

    I am regretting on buying them, but they sound decent enough to keep them. The bass is what I love the most so far. Just hope they last longer then they feel like they would, because I don't play on getting any other earbuds for a while and needed a pair.

    I've ordered a set of xiaomi pistons. Hope they turn out better than the E1+ or at least no worse than.

    which in you opinion you think are better? Xiaomi Pistons, Silver Bullets or JBL? Some people say that Silver Bullets are very similar to Xiaomi Pistons others say that Xiaomi are better of the 3 of them, others say that JBL are the best.
    Does any of you tryed or tested any of this ones or all of them?

    But does it have a built in volume control and microphone that works with the OnePlus One?

    actually, i don't now about the mic, but you will google it anyway and you'll see
    once you use them to listen to some music......wow

    I've been holding off for the JBLs to see if they'll be released before xmas, if not i'll be getting the soundmagic e10s, they get some really good reviews, only let down is the lack of volume control.

    microphone yes, no volume control, just the one click button type thing for play/pause/call answer/hang up/skip track etc.

    yeah but don't consider that a deal breaker, they offer supperb sound
    according to whathifi, best budget in-ears four years in a row !!!!

    LE : volume control, if done on a budget, ruins the audio experience. better not done at all

    Thanks for the review man. Looks like I'm going to order a set of Pistons when I'll get the chance to order my OPO.
