The Xiaomi brand is quite new, having been found only a few years back. Since then, it has won many hearts due to the overall excellent quality and a very affordable price. One of their products that has made it big is the Piston series of in-ear headphones. Once again, this is due to the combination of a superb price and awesome sound. But the durability factor has contributed massively too. After all, how difficult is it to find sturdy earbuds? It’s very difficult!
Since the release of the very first Pistons, we’ve had a couple of updates with the 3.0 being the more recent one. While handling these Pistons, you can easily observe the durability of these earbuds. The cord is braided and covered with a tough Kevlar material. The rest of the material used to construct this isn’t just plastic. In fact, metal has also been used to make the Piston 3.0s.
The sound quality is pretty impressive too with the lows and mids being very impressive indeed. The sound in general is very balanced and the bass is satisfying without being overly powerful. The inclusion of earplug sizes in extra small, small and large will be very useful for most users.
If all these qualities are great then what’s even greater is the shockingly low price of around 20 bucks!
