    I guess many of you have already seen this thread by @BrettPlusOne and you probably know what Xiaomi and Piston v3's are.
    Well I ordered a pair of these headphones from the link provided in the thread mentioned above and here is a small scale unboxing with pics;

    Also note; I had to compress the pictures, since the site didn't allow me to upload full size.

    All, except one picture were taken with the One.

    HQaliversio.jpg The headphones are mostly metallic and only the part that goes inside the ear is plastic + rubber.

    This last picture's quality sucks, because obviously it was taken with my old phone (SE Xperia Mini Pro).

    As expected, the Piston v3's fully work with the OnePlus One. All the buttons work incl. pause, volume up/down. I haven't tested the mic yet though. EDIT: The mic works.

    Note: This is not a review and was never meant to be. I also won't be comparing sound quality, since I am not an expert.( I'll leave that to them ;)) I also can't compare the sound with v2 , because I don't own those. I'll just say the v3 sounds really great and even better with MaxxAudio.

    Indeed the sound with MaxxAudio is quite epic.
    Also I think the shape at least seems a lot more comfortable than the v2.

    I found a pair of the Jaybird Bluebuds that are around $75-85. ($175 retail). Do you think I should opt for these instead?

    Actually I have V4A... I think is way much better...
    About the shape... The feeling is pretty strange... I have always the feeling that they are about to fall...

    The risk is they aren't OPO compatible... Just check around if someone else have 'em.... Do they have buttons for answer and volume?
