    Heard great things about this. So, wanted to buy it.

    But, checked some reviews and they're saying the current ones ie the ones Flipkart are selling for Rs. 799 /- isn't as good as the ones they were selling for Rs. 999 /-. Some have even questioned the authenticity of the Pistons sold by Flipkart. So, I wanted to know how many have bought the current Rs. 799 /- version from Flipkart and how is it?

    Error 500 Server Error

    Also, those who have the Rs. 999 /-versions, is it mentioned anywhere what model etc exactly it is?

    Cheers.

    I ordered the Mi Piston few days back. With offer it costed me Rs 719. But yes it was selling for Rs 799. I am guessing I would know some answers to your questions when I will have my hands on it after 2 days!

    Its same version... Flipkart slashed price. I have Mi piston v2. Personally I found CX180 much better than Mi piston (in sound quality), but Mi piston is much much more durable.
    Soundmagic ES18 - broke in one month.
    Mi piston - Great build quality mediocre sound.
    sennheiser cx180 - nice sound quality, poor build quality.
    Skullcandy Ink'd 2 - Great sound, lasted ~1 year (Access Denied I bought it for 1.2k, so at 0.5k its great deal)

    Interestingly MI piston 2 have received positive reviews and special praise in value for money in the audio community , not sure if we are recieving the same variant because it has really been praised for its sound quality.

    One thing which made me finally buy Mi Piston is the claim that it can't get tangled. Atleast not easily. I would love to keep the headphones in my pocket and not wasting minutes in frustration while untangling it.

    The sound is Ok. I am not an audiophile but it have bass, although others who tried said not much, but treble is good. Don't know how to judge the sound for you, but everyone was impressed by the packaging. I was more impressed with the box itself in which the gift pack came. It unfolded itself to become an instruction manual. Innovative. Pic:

    Sorry, can't really say about the quality of sound other than what I already said. It's loud and gives good bass in some songs that I listened. And that's the only thing I really needed.

    Also, people tend to ask me to borrow the earphone these days. :p
