Mediocre shouldn't cost $110. There are tons of okay to decent IEMs under that price.

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.

Does anyone know the size of the driver? I have a very small ear canal. iBasso T01 does not fit for me. I would guess I need the width to be around 5mm (= 0.2 inch).

I have both. The size of the driver is not the main factor. It's the size of the housing that matters. The P1 is certainly smaller and fits better in my rather small ears. But you might go for something truly small. Check out Rose Mini mk2. The Hifiman re 400 and re 600 are also quite small.

I find them as comfortable as the shure se iems, mayoebven better, and considering that you can wear them upside down they’re hard to beat regarding comfort

Interesting that they're doing Drops for these again, and for cheaper than the PX...

Awful weak sounding IEM's. My current reference are Earsonics Velvet V2, however, even the Vsonic VS series, Fidue A73 walk all over these in every sound aspect. Save your money, head over to Penon Audio or Lend Me Ur Ears and purchase something else.

It has nothing to do about BA vs DF, the P1 sounds nothing like the Atlas or Andro. Their FR is pretty unique. I think you meant to say they have a more similar tonality to the Atlas since they are pure DD setups which I can understand. But they definitely do not have much else in common with the Atlas signature wise and that's not getting into their other technical differences (distortion, impedance, square waves, etc.) which is pretty well documented at this point. Misleading info is already pretty bad in this hobby despite what our subjective opinions say. Regarding power, I said the P1 benefits from amping (which you clearly were doing). Especially for more dynamic music, they get close to requiring damn near 2vrms of power which only the LG V family of phones applies. Even looking at the Tin P1 at 20 ohms / 95 dBmW, the Pinnacle asks for almost double the amount of voltage with it's 53 ohm / 96 dBmW sensitivity. They both have virtually flat impedance curves so OI won't play a factor here as well. Again, not basing anything on your subjective opinion, the Pinnacle is power hungry for an IEM even compared to a lot of full size closed back cans and more so than the Tin P1. That's just the objective truth. And I'm guessing you've never even heard the Ety. It sounds VERY close to the HD 650 in IEM form under the $200 price point. Otherwise, you'll have to spend more to get to a similar FR. And we do agree in the 650; I gave mine away to a friend after getting the Elex and Clear. They just do the whole HD650 thing better, IMO. But I've always enjoyed the 600 and even the 58X more than the 650 anyway. It's the one headphone where I have never quite understood the hype. At least the 800 has the best trick of it's soundstage despite being a bit hot in the treble for my taste.

Everything other than the power hungry comment, I agree with. The fact is, when I plug these in to a shitty source they still sound great. I can't say that about my other 'power hungry' cans.
