    I do you Noob. Thing is you are just mad for no reason. If OPO intimidates you so much then leave the forum at once. Jerk

    Noob? There you go again, assuming that OPO intimidates me or I am not happy with OPO. LOL I actually have one and am happy. But continue feeding your pride, you retard. You are the only one with the OPO and have the best phone in the world.

    I'm in the same situation... The Xiaomi sound is really not that good but i like to use the volume keys to change songs and stuff.

    So anyone knows if the Silver Bullets are better?

    As a fellow OPO owner I have to disagree with you on this point. I have not encountered many bugs with the phone; no more than I would expect from any other phone. Only a fool expects a 100% flawless experience with the so many variables in play; hence why even the most expensive software is still updated consistently.

    As for features, I can only point to two things I wish the OPO had: FM radio, and compatibility with LTE at 800Mhz. Neither of these are a deal breaker for me (the former would merely be an occasional convenience); and I was more than happy to give it a chance because it offered so much more than anything else in the price bracket I was looking at.

    Granted they are not at all breathtaking for an audiophiles ears but I can still say this wguarantee that they are much better than the crappy ear pods. I just did a comparison an hou ago and found the pistons seal so much better. But still I guess the statements that said they trump 100$ earbuds spoiled me a bit.

    well uhm, it also depends on which you listen to. you can have the best music installation in the world but when you listen to a track which isn't recorded good (bad record quality) it will sound bad on your best installation too. Also if you're listening to pandora or free version of spotify (or music you downladed an isn't 320k.) you quality of the music isn't good and you cant listen to that with $5 earbuds or $200 earbuds but the difference will not be that great.

    soo. i dare you, if you can produce this phone for a price of $200 and sill making money. why don't you? you are saying that the hardware blabla blablabla but you never mention the cost of the buildings, the engineers who have designed this phone, the people who work in the fabrics,...
    I'm not saying that everything is perfect but i think you forgot some costs in you marketing plan.

    I own the phone 3 months now and i'm still very happy that i bought it! The phone is great and is comparable with the phone's which cost double as much. so i can't complain. and i'm pretty sure you also cant!

    .. you know, actually a bad produced track could sound better than a high quality mix on cheap earphones.
    basically unless the earphones have a really high audio quality, which i don't assume but i wouldn't know since i don't have them, having a high quality mixdown track doesn't do much for you because the earphones will not portray all that's in the mix. which means that your music is just eating away space while you can't enjoy its full potential.

    You spend too much time in the forums believing all the bad press. I think most people get their OPO and never spend a minute in the forums afterwards. The majority of what's left are the complainers.

    I have Pistons and they were lackluster at first. After about 20 hours of break in though they sound pretty incredible for ear buds. All audio drivers of any type have a break in period and the sound quality improves if they are built well. No where near the quality sound from my
    Audio-Technica ATH-M40x, but for ear buds are very good. I don't own the OPO ones to compare.

    Piston 2.0 is a not bad earbuds for OPO. I pay only Malaysian Ringgit 60 for it with Xiaomi Malaysia warranty. Fake 2.0 on the other hand do not produce similar output
