    I am actually not generally a fan of earphones. I would love for Xiaomi or OP to come out with some decent low priced headphones. Anybody have suggestions for something in the $20-40 range. I'm no audiophile but want decent build quality and comfort.

    After the latest cyanogenmod update the long press volume features don't seem to work anymore? Does anyone know of a way to fix this? This was obviously the best feature of these headphones..

    There's two versions of this. The one with the red R and L letters perform better.

    Mine are pink/red. Does that mean those are the "red" ones?

    link not working
    I have used these earphones for about a week now, and I got to tell you.. Its pretty amazing.
    It not only sounds incredible, it looks really premium and it "smells nice".

    And yes, it smells like chocolate!


    The packaging is very minimalistic, and only comes with a chinese user manual inside.



    It comes with a compact acrylic box that includes caps in other sizes: small, medium and large. It also includes a shirt clip.

    As you can see on the picture above, the earphones are in a rubber tray.. so you take it safely wherever you want.



    The Xiaomi Piston 2 has a remote control with a mic for smartphones and a volume control that only works on Android.
    • Speaker impedance 16 ohms
    • Weight 12 grams
    • Cable length 1.2 m
    • Wire core material enamelled copper wire
    • Headphone sensitivity 93dB
    • Plug Type - 3.5mm gold-plated
    • The maximum practical power - 5mW
    • Maximum acceptable power - 20mW


    The Piston 2 sounds incredible, the extent of sound quality improvement made in part by opening up a large rear vent and tightening up the bass response is quite amazing. The new tuning results in significantly less bloated bass, clear mids, and a more energetic and natural.


    Its low end is well-extended and plenty impactful. It is still somewhat boomy compared to many higher-end sets.

    The Piston 2 has a full-bodied sound with a warm tonal character. Although its sound signature follows a common "v-shape" profile with raised bass and treble, the midrange does not appear overly recessed. Clarity is good considering the bass quantity, in this price range.



    The Xiaomi Piston 2 doesn't look or feel like a cheap product. The design is extremely well thought-out. The compact acrylic box, for example, can double as a storage case while its paper sleeve unfolds into a user manual. The rubber tray is also a cable winder. The tray and earphones have a faint chocolate aroma.


    The earphone itself is also impressive, with the finely ridged machined aluminum body showcasing nice attention to detail and solid construction.


    Microphone test

    I also did a little microphone test by putting the Xiaomi Piston 2 earphones inside my OnePlus One and recorded music with screencast. (Macbook Pro speakers)


    The Xiaomi Piston 2 is a fantastic earphone, with an incredible amount of detail on the design, including a 3-button Android remote and a great mic, is nearly impossible for the price.[/QUOTE]
