Xiaomi Piston "Basic Edition"
It would be almost an understatement to claim that Xiaomi has brought a new in-ear every quarter so far, but the quite successful "Piston" series is now with the Xiaomi Piston Basic continued. The Xiaomi Piston Basic Edition is strongly based on the Xiaomi Piston 3 and is based primarily on the design of the orchestra on this very successful in-ear headphones.
Nevertheless, the Basic Edition is a much stripped-down version of the 3er model, which is already apparent from the greatly reduced price. The new Xiaomi in-ear costs just half of the Piston 3. Reviews of the Piston Basic Edition looking so far in vain, since the in-ear has recently been released. Nevertheless, I try to list some information here and make a comparison to the Xiaomi Piston 3.
Information about the Xiaomi Piston Basic Edition
The body of the In-Ears consists of high quality aluminum and has a similar shape as the Xiaomi Piston 3. The ear tips were also placed slightly obliquely, creating a improved comfort is guaranteed and unintentional falling out of the in-ear is largely prevented. With a Weight of only 14g The Basic Edition is barely noticeable in the ear. Also new are the different color variants, which replace the simple, black design. Color variations are among others Metallic blue, silver, purple and pink.
The cable of the Piston Basic has a length of 1.25m and is a so-called Ribbon cable, This is in contrast to the Piston 3, which has a textile sheathed cable, rubber jacket, Although this prevents friction noise, at the same time, however, the durability of a rubber coated cable is lower. The centrally mounted remote control and microphone was through a simple Single-button remote control replaced. Although the microphone is retained, but a volume control via the remote control is no longer possible. The Piston Basic can only stop and start music playback, as well as receive and reject calls.
The driver of the Xiaomi Piston Basic has one Power consumption of 5mW, The frequency range is at 20-20.000KHz, the impedance at 32 Ohm, Thus, this in-ear on the datasheet has similar values to its big brother, but the membrane made of two outer PET layers and an inner metal layer that distinguishes the Piston 3 has been dispensed with. Instead, this in-ear has a simple look Metal and plastic existing Membran.
Despite minor changes to the larger model, one can assume that Xiaomi has also done a good job on the Piston Basic Edition and that the sound is commensurate with the price. So far there are no reviews for the Xiaomi Piston Basic, which is why we can not yet judge the sound. As soon as the in-ear has arrived, the test of the Xiaomi Piston Basic follows!
