I had the PX’s for a short time (they were a gift but me and the person I gave them to tested them out so I got a good listen) and I own the P1’s and I’ve listened to the P2’s when they came out for a bit with my own gear.(To get rid of any variables)
If you have a portable DAC/amp or a DAP with a good amp built in already, you’re best off with the PX’s. As good as sound as the P1’s but with a different cable. (Although I prefer the P1’s cable it’s not worth the price difference but in this drop if you happen to get the P1’s it’s awesome)
If you’re listening from your phone, and you don’t have an LG V30 the P2’s are the best option. Although their sound signature is slightly different And less neutral, it’s much easier to get good volume and sound from a phone than the P1’s/PX’s.
Overall this is my idea of a perfect IEM blue box. I think the only reason more aren’t going for this is because $80 is still a fair amount of money for IEM’s (to most people at least) and a lot of the people that find it worth it, already have the PX’s.
I might get a box just to have the P2’s for when I travel and don’t want to bring an amp and dac or dap just to listen to music. I already have a phone so any other devices is just extra space and things to keep track of. After all they take up way less space than a pair of headphones.
Have you tried to drive them from a MacBook Pro? I couldn't tell the difference when comparing with DAC/AMPs around $200 mark.
I have not, however I have used the PX’s and P2’s on an iPhone 6s, the P2’s were a better listening experience due to the lack of power that the iPhone puts out. I would assume similar from MacBook Pro, most apple Products I’ve found benefit greatly from an external amp/dac although with the P2’s I think it would be pleasant listening experience. The P2’s have much less impedance so you’d be better off with the P2’s.
P2’s also have a bit more bass than the Px’s If you’re into that. Not overwhelming, just a tad more.
