Pistons 2 doesn't leak sound as much, but their sound signature is a lot more bassy. There are so many headphones out there, hard to even recommend something new because you can find so many "gem" for a dirt cheap price... just look at all those reviews in my signature.vectron, thank you very much for this very detailed review.
i am looking for new in-ear-phones which i will be using in the office too. would you recommend the piston 3 for this purpose? will someone sitting next to you hear the sound leakage? if yes, how do the piston 2 perform in this regard?
It's not 100% flat neutral because you have a slight boost in low end, but it's very well controlled and NOWHERE near a bloat of P2.Good review, enjoyed reading it.
By the way, I've read few reviews claiming that the piston 3 still has 'V' shaped sound and not completely neutral. How far do you agree? Do you think piston 3 works well on most vocal/classical music? I'm currently looking for iem that suits my fav music genres. I personally find my piston 2 was too 'v' shaped for me but I kind of can bear with it at the moment with some eq tweaking.
It's Neutron Music Player - https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.neutroncode.mpHello!
How is the name of the app thats running on the samsung on the picture?
I search for a good eq app like the viper4android. unfortunantly viper wont work on my new android...
Sorry, all stock (not rooted).HI @vectron
thanks for this VERY detailed review, almost convinced me to buy these.
I'm currently enjoying Piston 2.1's + Viper4Android + IRS attached (found it somewhere in the internets) - and I like this combination VERY much sound-wise. could you if possible try it and let me know how it compares to stock Piston 3 sound (on Piston 2 I find highs a bit screaming for my ears, mids turned down too much, bass and soundstage are ok). just unzip file attached to "Viper4Android/Kernel' dir and choose pi2.irs in V4A>Convolver>Impulse Response.
That's if you have rooted your device and some time to spare of course.
You don't need any special burn in file for a bass to magically appear "Burn in" is not a secret recipe to fix the sound, it just an expression to "exercise" your dynamic driver for 40-50 hours until it's conditioned to play at its best. Some people just listen and observe the changes. I like to put my headphones with DAP (digital audio player) on repeat for 2 days and come back later to hear the difference.Hello frnds ...anyone ... give me burn in file for my P3 plss...bass is very low how to increase? My sony mh-750 sound quality better than these ....
Eq is k.Poweramp p3 bass is very low
