I wouldve suggested Piston 3 but they are out of stock like always.
Get Sony XB30 for bass.

You can also check out KZ ED8 but they are heavy and not comfortable for long usage.

U can go for brainwavz delta. Sound quality is on par with piston 2 (i own both) and the volume level seems to be higher as well. But build quality of piston 2 is way better

aree bro ...maybe the more knowledgable sound guys are busy somewhere...dont get soo frustated.

I have used only 2 soundmagic ES18 and sony XB30 ...but XB30 is only for Bass lovers like me ..and not a popular choice.

I have owned the Piston 2 ( Still do, but the wire around the jack is damaged, sound doesn't come without adjusting the wire )
Currently use Sony XB30. When my friends ask for suggestion I tell them to buy CX275. Have experienced Cowon EM1.

My personal opinion about all .

Piston 2: Initial experience was, bad. The thing looks fake with those golden cloth covered wire and shady badly finiished earpiece and volume control. Sound has a bit noise. But the bass, is not high, but really punchy, it's like they're beating the dhol right in front of you. Ideal for listening to hindi / bangla / any indian party song. I miss them a lot :(

XB30: One of the most well built IEMs if not the best in it''s price range ( and quite above it too ) The flattened wires are such a big advantage you won'trealise this until you use it and then go back to thin wires which get entangled on it own out of nowhere :| Sound quality is top notch, and the bass, as the name suggest, is Xtra. Which is exactly it's problem.. the artificially increased bass, which is a bit dull actually, tends to drown every other sound many a time. Most won't care but I'm more of a treble guy.

CX275: Best sound quality in this price range ( Rs 1299 at Amazon Lightning Deals) But the bass is almost non existant :(Still, a great choice.

Cowon EM1: good sound quality, flat wires, really cheap, not bad at all, but may seem a downgrade if you're used to better IEMs.

Since you want bass you may get the XB30, but if possible search for Piston 2 you might get it cheap now.

I bought the delta recently because of warranty concerns with Xiaomi. Impressed by the overall build quality, great noise isolation with comfy tips and sound quality, even before burn in, is better than the ES18.

Brought mi piston3.....only one word simply awsm....packaging same as piston2....yes the design of v3 is better than v2...(personally i like v3 design)...very comfortable...so happy with1st look
Now sound
Without burn in....the sound is really (mark my word) is awsm...yes its bit bassy louder and overall good sound over pistonv2....yes its a good upgrade over v2 and spending extra 200rs on v3 over v2 is totally worth it..
Best earphones used so far....
Mi piston3 really highly recommend
Thnx thinkdigit for recommendation...
