The latest New Xiaomi Piston 3 Earphone is a 3rd generation model by after previously launching Piston V2 back in 2014. The differences between the new model and the older one is mostly expressed in design and materials. The V2 shape of the earphone is cylindrical, completely made of metal material vs. The V3 model that’s mostly from plastic materials, making it more lightweight with a cleaner design and look.
Earphone wire according to company specs is made from Kevlar fiber, making it more durable to tearing. In addition, when comparing to a straight cylindrical shaped earphone design in V2 to the newer model it has 45 degrees “elbow” what makes it more agronomic officiant and compatible fitting inside the persons ear channel.
