The inside of the bowls made of plastic, metal exterior of relief – such promptness looks great and is lightweight. The remote control is also made of aluminum with a barely noticeable relief. Plug straight and has a rubber boot to prevent bending.
Ergonomics – Xiaomi Piston v3
Everything I like in the past, “Pistone”, but landing in his ears uncertain because of the general form of bowls themselves. The novelty of this problem is solved Xiaomi and headphones sitting tenaciously because now form a model with a bend and the cup goes in the ear like a glove.
There is only one drawback – inconvenient to listen to music with a wire behind the ear because of the ergonomically shaped bowls and proximity remote control to the right earpiece.
But what is worth praise for is the minimum weight, so many hours of use did not bring any discomfort.
Sounding – Xiaomi Piston v3
In comparison with the past “pistons” sound news has not changed much, but became fresher, more dynamic and broader. Headphones very clearly transmit those little things that build any composition. Typically, in such a gag for the price it plays only a “base”, but here are harmoniously combined and detail high, medium and low frequencies.

The model is more ergonomic, light and changed externally. The sound was also a bit fresher and have more details, but the overall sound of the serious advantages to the past generation there.
