Hmm... These or the Toneking BL1? Decisions, Decisions

I wonder why Tin went with a 10mm driver vs. the Toneking's 14mm. Does size matter for planar or would 3mm make no difference?

It's not about drivers it's about implementation you can out a ton of drivers into a iem and still make it sound bad. Or just use one and it can sound awesome.

That makes a lot of sense. I've never listened to a planar, but I love my T2, so this is very tempting.

Yeah as Bob said.. though the 14mm vs 10mm might make a difference in bass extension. But he's right on point on a single driver can sound better than a ton of them done wrong. Look at KZ packing them in and their tuning still usually always sucks, where as Ety's use 1 and can sound stellar. But I'm still stuck between the 2 IEMs. Did read a review stating the mid tuning on the P1 doesn't lend itself as well to rock. And I majority listen to rock and metal.

RHA CL2 is 10mm to while all of Audezes range (from $199 iSine LX to $2495 LCDi4) is 30mm. All more expensive than P1 but still needs EQ to shine.. I'm throwing my pennies on TinHiFi hoping its true they tuned this one right!

Honestly speaking, I don't like the BL1 too much. Their tuning is flawed in that upper midrange and treble are emphasised to the point they sound almost tinny in most situations. Tuning is just not right and the only way I found to make them sound a bit better is to close the vents, which introduces entirely new issues though. I would frankly go for the P1.
