    I dunno, but the pistons aren't weak. Had a couple of times already wheb I was really f*cking surprused they survived some stupid actions.

    Anyone else with these 2 that can give more feedback? I was looking to get the jvc, but i have read good things on the pistons, but also read good things on the jvc ones. The jvc's turn out to be a bit cheaper, but the advantage for me with the pistons is the volume controls, which the jvc doesn't have (there is a version with mic and song controls but from reviews they say sound quality isn't the same, i don't know), but i mostly want something that sounds good.

    You can't go wrong with the pistons. I bought 2 pairs in different colors because I like them so much. If you are interested in a microphone too then look no further.

    IMO, the new silver ones look better than the golds.
    Here's a link (Amazon US). Also, watch out for fakes because they are all over the place!

    Thank you for the reply!
    I don't care much for the mic, although it can be useful. But i do like to have volume controls, especially when im running, i can change volume and mod the phone to have long press on the volume to change song.
    Those silver ones do look cool. If i do get the pistons i will most likely order them from **, they also have the miband which im interested in and i think they sell legit products - the amount of fakes on the xiaomi stuff really is insane.
