These were one of my first forays into 'audiophile' earphones and to this day i still use them as go-to iems. In fact last month I misplaced them and seriously considered buying a new set, despite all the the incredible new options that have emerged since their release. They are such great all-rounders and provide the best comfort and seal of essentially all earphones I've owned--i regularly sleep in them. They have Very clean, nimble bass. Smooth mids. And an incredibly lively high end. They are weirdly difficult to drive however. I can achieve higher volume from most of my full size over-ear headphones when using my phone, or plugging them in to my PS4 controller--which is essentially a BT dac/amp. Anyway, i thought i'd leave my thoughts here as I'm unable to leave a proper review on drop.

I haven't had a problem driving them with my phone (Samsung Galaxy S7 Exynos) but I get that all phones are not the same. One of the big hits for me is the form factor. That small zinc housing is amazing for subtle fitment. I do feel your dilemma, if I misplaced mine I'd have to think hard about something else to replacement given all the positive points these IEMs have (except the cables, I'm sorry I tried). At this price point that makes the decision either easier or harder.

I bought a pair of these four years ago from a local headphone store in town, cost me about $250 CDN plus taxes. After picking up the Campfire Audio Orion and Jupiter and 64 Audio U12T these are still the ones that I wear when going around town and commuting to work. The stock cables aren't the greatest but I swapped over another MMCX cable I had kicking around when there were problems. The form factor for the IEMs is nice as they disappear in your pocket easily. Love the zinc exterior as I've made the odd bad drop and they've been fine. Never regretted the purchase. edit: I do use Spinfit tips with them, that's as far as I went with tip rolling.

Still one of the best designed IEMs in my collection. The photos here don't do it justice. The sound however is somewhat 'plain' but clear enough for average listeners. Quite shy on the bass department.

My P1s stopped working. No sound. Happened after I switched cables. When I re-connected the first cables no result. Where do I go for warranty? Thanks

Do you use them with a smartphone? They need a little bit more powerful source than that in order to work properly, due to its impedance.

I agree the cables are poor, and I think the one without inline controls was better than the one with in terms of kinking up? A pair of headphones shouldn't be judged on their cables though, unless they are not detachable, as you can pick up so many different kinds out there of varying quality and options.

Nice drop, I am in! I had a pair of PX for more than 2 years and they are fabulous (for my taste), but coating chipped off quite a bit. P1 with polished finish should fair much better in this department. Also, extra 'silver-plated' wire is nice to have, although I doubt that it is going to be close in sound quality to Linsoul OCC cables. Now I will be able to pair black connectors of furutech wires with PX, and shiny connectors of Linsoul cable with polished P1 - win/win scenario :) That will give me one unbalanced IEM to go with vintage CD players, and one balanced to go with dying-but-not-quite-dead-yet Opus #3, no adapters involved. Warning to potential buyers: those IEMs sound just OK with regular cable and weak amplification. They really benefit from amping, and from cable upgrades as well. I would not use them with typical smartphone or most portable CD players (P2 is better in that application, IMHO), but they are good with Opus #3 and absolutely fabulous with Auralic Taurus mkII - but forget about portability at that point. Update: 'silver-plated' cable that is included in this drop is actually probably the best stock cable I ever had. It does not quite measure to Linsoul LSC09, but is quite close... largest reason why stock cable is not 'quite there' is that its sound is a little bit 'tizzy' in the high end of the spectrum, but not much (silver does have a reputation for a bit accentuated and 'fragile' high end). Still very, very nice. Moved that cable to Pinnacle P2 headphones, and it works extremely well there (P2 does not have enough definition for 'tizzy' high-end to be noticeable).

Hi Olek - you seem to have some experience wih the Pinnacles. How would the P1 perform with the iBasso CD02 on a Google Pixel 2 Phone? I ordered a pair, but it will be a while before they will be delivered in Luxembourg here. Thanks.

I know my Pinnacles IEMs but sadly I do not know much about iBasso DC02. I think this combination should do well, although it is likely you will not be getting all those IEMs have to offer. It remains to be seen how silver-plated cable performs, but changing factory 'mic' cable to either furutech or Linsoul LCS09 cable was very serious boost in sound quality, probably largest in my experience for any headphones I tried.
