Xiaomi piston Initially positioned as analogues of expensive headphones. Everything was good in them: the sound, the quality of the material, and the performance, only the design was rude and not everyone liked it. The same headphones are now more elegant, modern and aggressive. Let’s take a closer look at them and find out if they are worth the money. Go!
Structural material piston 3 is plastic, it is from it that bowls and other non-cable elements are made. The manufacturer did not become greedy and abundantly covered the plastic with aluminum inserts with a very beautiful finish. Somewhere these are concentric rings, somewhere grinding, and in some places parallel radial notches, barely noticeable to the eye. All metal parts are covered with a thin layer of transparent varnish, but, unfortunately, it wears off quickly at the corners, and it scratches wonderfully on clothes.
The four-core cable between the “jack” and the splitter is tied with a nylon braid, and from the splitter to the bowls, the cord is just silicone. Inside the wires are reinforced with Kevlar cord.
At PistonThere are separate right and left earphones. Putting the right ear into the left ear, and vice versa, is possible only with great effort.
The cable gets tangled very easily, and this is perhaps the biggest disadvantage. After all, who among us likes to untangle headphones?
Sound. I can’t call the sound quality bad, but the fact that these headphones are very capricious and demanding on the source is a fact. With smartphones Xiaomi these headphones get along just fine, with everyone else, as ever. In some cases, you need to adjust the equalizer for a long time and tediously, but you can still achieve the result.
In general, the headphones please with both detail and quality. There is little bass. There is no dip in the middle or top either. Soundproofing is good. I was satisfied with the sound.
Conclusion. Xiaomi Piston 3 is an ideal choice in the budget segment. Yes, they are not perfect, but for such a price, I think it makes no sense to find fault with them. Therefore, I will recommend for purchase, and I will rate the headphones with four.
