Looks like the pee-ay-zoh's have it...

OR so I thought... http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/piezoelectric

Most of them go for pee-ay-zoh, but one goes for pie-ee-zoh.

BTW piezo is vernacular for piezoelectric (as Alex sorta pointed out)...

So, it is 3 pee-zo; 7 pee-a-zo; 4 pie-zo.

I have always said pee-zo.

I found conflicting dictionary entries, most only list piezoelectric.  So I had some voice synths say it for me...they had quite a bit of trouble with it, but it generally came out sounding like Pi-EEE-zo.
