I would like to thank @oneidentity for giving me his time and letting me test the new Piston V3. Since, it’s my hobby I am extra grateful to him. He din’t even demand anything in return, even I had offered him.

Would like to add, he is a jolly good fellow. Keep it buddy. Would like to meet sometime again.

Even though the version I listened to was the ‘Youth’ edition which is meant to be on the lower side quality-wise. But, I found the IEMs to be well built. It has flat cable. Unlike the Piston V2 which had Kevlar-braided cable this one is made from rubber. Maybe the more expensive version be different.

Unlike Piston V2, V3 is more comfortable to wear.

Xiaomi has made Piston V3 open back, and it reflected in the sound. The soundstage is wide. Piston V2 had decent soundstage but V3 is delight to hear. And, just like open-back phones it is bass-anemic too. So much so that I had carried my Fiio E11 amp with me because I had heard about the bass issue before, but to no avail. Yes the Fiio amp is very bassy and should have paired well with the Piston V3 but surprisingly, the amp didn’t help much except it made things much worse by narrowing the soundstage and muddling the clarity. Some people had written about the 32ohm driver against the 16ohm in Piston V2 would be better with an amp but I didn’t find the right amp for the V3 maybe.

But, it’s not bad at all. V2 was bass driven and V3 is treble centric. Both are very different phones. From the 15-20 odd mins I listened to them ‘vocals’ naturally is where V3 really shines. Xiaomi has gone from V-shaped sound in Piston V2 to U-shaped in Piston V3. So, if you are going to listen to disco-dance-trance-rap kind of music use Piston V2 and if you like soulful music with vocals then go for Piston V3.

It’s not a proper review but hope it helps those who are not sure which one to buy.

Same city, almost same locality.

@thrifty_indian – He can give detailed review about Piston 3 Youth edition as he is really expert when it comes to choosing headphone.

Edit:- Excellent, to the point review!!! Thumbs up.

no idea who it was for.
but if for @thrifty_indian bro, then come on man.. bit unfair

Thrifty has been an avid music lover bordering on being an audiophile or connoisseur

some of his closing thoughts here are relevant >> http://www.desidime.com/forums/dost-and-dimes/t...


and since only his interests in hobbies been questioned under this discussion, I’d not like to get into the professional realm,

but I think he has had the new age entrepreneurial bug bite him enough to try his hand in e-tailing too.

audiophile or connoisseur
I am neither, just an avid music lover bordering lunacy maybe and bankruptcy at times due to this expensive hobby.

They have stopped selling in India. Get Xiaomi basic it’s better than Piston 2.1
