Promate may be a brand unheard for many, but it certainly piqued our interest when we saw a concept store at SM North Edsa Cyberzone. One of their low-cost offerings, the Earmate.iS, produce a wide frequency response and an enhanced bass performance.

    I have a gold Mi Piston. IMO Apple’s earbud is better than the piston. And even the in-ear “class A” Beats earphones (purchased 4yrs ago at P300+) is better than the piston. I like bass-y sounds btw.

    Sino’ng may piston? Kamusta naman?

      sinusok mo ba ng mabuti yung pistons mo? in-canal kasi siya.

    • MaYu says:

      I’ve use both products.
      The Mi Piston is best used on a Mi Device or any device compatible to it. Mi Devices has a feature similar to Sony’s ClearAudio+ that makes audio sound better.

      Apple device Cannot bring out the full quality of Pistons from what i can observe.

      I don’t have Mi Phone. Ok thanks.

      Dudes. If you are using any droid phone just download PowerAmp and tweak the settings urself. The have the best software amplifier ever!
      Di nyo maapreciate yan kung di nyo dodownload to at mag ttweak kayo ng settings nyo pra ma boost nyo bass nung pistons. sobrang ganda ng pistons basta natimpla nyo lng. Also try to run in in a loop for the first 3 days for burn in. Improves it slightly but I believe only audiophiles will notice the difference.
      Bang for buck ung pistons. dunno about the other phones na nka lista dito pero I will vouche for thep istons

    ayoko talaga ng ear plugs/in ears na headset, as in ever! di ako fan nito. Napaka uncomfortable, Earbuds all the way! (or headphones) (on that note pwede ba author make also an article of affordable and quality earphones/earbud) Suggestion lang. Thanks!

    I recommend Coloud Pop Block. mag 2 years na yung akin maayos pa din!

  9. Xan says:

    A list naman for earphones/headphone na may good MICROPHONE. I mean yung maganda for recording or pag may kausap ka sa kabilang linya. Kasi minsan maganda nga yung sounds na naririnig pero yung mic naman ang sablay.
