Fellow MIUIers,

From the team behind the successful Xiaomi Pistons, 1more, comes the new Piston Earbuds edition. This is a gift from a friend in China, and I'm listening to it as I type. Here I bring to you, the unboxing plus hands-on of the 1more Amber Gold Pistons Earbud.

First Look: The Packaging

Following the usual packaging design hue of Xiaomi which emphasizes on simplicity, the packaging is just a cuboidal box similar to that of the Pistons, with only the branding difference and it getting an elegant splash of metallic dark grey instead of usually brown of Gold Pistons and white of Silver Pistons.

Tech specs are shown on the back as usual. This model is an upgrade from the previous three generations of Pistons. With a double in speaker resistance to 32ohms, the earbud has a sensitivity of 113db, higher than the 97db on Silver Pistons and the 93db on Gold Pistons.

The Unboxing

Opening four black flaps reveals the heart of the box. Different from the edition one may find on Xiaomi Online Store which comes in a black plastic casing, this edition comes with a pink metal carrying case.

The polygon design on the box is a real candy to the eyes, adding fashion to already attractive metal casing.

It opens to reveal the earbuds, neatly tucked into a unique cord winder

Remove the cord winder and you'll see the additional accessories that came with the earbuds.

The amber gold colour of the earbuds are really striking and more appealing than the gold Pistons. The 1more Piston Earbuds run on Beryllium Alloy diaphragms similar to those in Xiaomi Pistons.

Combining Old School Design and Enthusiast Level Hardware, the 1more Piston Earbuds is said to parallel the quality of Hi-Fi systems.

Putting it on, it looks very similar to the Xiaomi Pistons, yet stands out with a more striking gold colour and a classical design.

IMG_20150214_151934.jpg

The accessories mentioned earlier are actually attachments to the earbud to improve your wearing and listening experience. The transparent silicon "rabbit ear" attachments help to secure the earbuds in their positions while the black foam ones help to close up any space between the earbuds and our ear canal, effectively improving the bass.

The Comparison

With all three products coming from the same company, it makes sense to make a comparison between the three Pistons. (I gaveaway a Pink Swarovski Edition before I could test it, you can however, check out the unboxing and hands-on of the model). The 1more Piston Earbuds stand out with a round and more simplistic container.

IMG_20150214_162004.jpg

All three headphones are made from a single block of aluminium with dual sound damping tech. All three has 1.2m long cords, enough for some but might be falling short for taller guys if their phones are in their pockets.

IMG_20150214_162053_HDR.jpg

Sound reproducing-wise, the bass of Xiaomi Pistons stand out as it's in-ear headphone that seals off surrounding sound. The 1more Piston Earbuds, however, due to its design has some sound leaking and loss of bass. This situation can be improved upon using the black foam attachment. (Tested with the song: #PLUR by Paulhard & Beauty Brain from Mi3 with User-defined EQ and Dirac Audio enabled)

IMG_20150214_162133_HDR.jpg

The 1more Piston Earbuds wins with it's clear mids and highs due to its upgraded hardware. Boasting capability for loseless audio, the 1more Piston Earbuds definitely clears out the Xiaomi Pistons. (Tested with the song: Lord of the Rings by The Piano Guys from Mi3 with User-Defined EQ and Dirac Audio enabled)

IMG_20150214_162147_HDR.jpg

All three Pistons has the same in-line mic and buttons with full support for Android Devices and limited support for iOS devices. The cord is made from Kevlar with a layer of fibre around it to improve resistance against strains

IMG_20150214_165458.jpg

For RMB 99 on Xiaomi's Online Store, this piece is definitely worth the price. I'm already planning to go around with this during Chinese New Year.

IMG_20150214_152357.jpg

Before I sign off, I've got a good news for Malaysian and Singapore MiFans: This new earbuds is making its way to the Johor Malaysia-Singapore Joint International Meetup.

Thar it shall end thy unboxin' an' hands-on. What do you think about this earbud? Will you get one should it be sold in your country? Share your views down below and don't forget to drop some credits if you think this unboxing is good enough.

The above tests are conducted with a 1more Piston Earbud right out of box with no burning-in done.

Awesome earphones. I own piston 2, but this looks pretty cool.
If you do what you need, you're surviving. If you do what you want, you're living.
