    Thanks!

    But would you recommend xiaomi over coloud pop and soundmagic? or do they all just sound the same? :) and i've read that xiaomi's volume buttons doesn't work for iphones, is that true?

    I don't know about Coloud, but Xiaomi and Soundmagics sound pretty much even to me. The advantage of Xiaomi is the volume buttons in which similarly priced Soundmagics do not have.

    Although Xiaomi's buttons dont work for Iphones so they are even also in that regard.

    Actually maganda yang nabili mo. Mataas review nito kaya ito din binili ko kaso nasira yung sakin dahil laging nahahatak. Nagamit ko naman siya for 1.5 years :)

    Maganda din to, nasa top 5 budget earphones to nung nakita ko

    I started using Mi Pistons which cost only around 700 and I'm very happy with them. I heaven't heard anything this good for the price out of everything I've tried for years and will highly recommend them to anyone looking for cheap earphones.

    I have the Pistons. Love how they sound but they just don't feel comfy in my ears. I tried all the sizes of earbuds. Can't use them for a long time without feeling discomfort in my ear. Bought Soundmagic PL11s to see how those fare. They seem better. Sound is good too.

    i also got the mi pistons, tried it for a couple of day. IMHO my stock galaxy buds sounded better. but overall, for its price, its still a good buy.
