Will These be able to work properly on my S10+ ? Thanks.

I would try it out first before making a final decision. Some have mentioned that phones alone may not be able to bring it to the full potential, so I would assume that applies to the s10+. I would also imagine that if the phone did put out enough power in general, you might start having issues with quieter songs/ older songs that were badly mastered or just quiet in general.

On some reviews it was mentioned that these IEMS are more power hungry than the MEE P1 which are in no way possible to drive them with mobile phones. https://www.audiophileon.com/news/tin-hifi-p1-review

Well, the Tin at worst is 20 ohm/92 dB/mW and the Pinnacle is 50 ohm/93 dBmW. So, not more power hungry per se, the Tin P1 has a higher current draw than the Pinnacle P1/PX which asks for more voltage. Both have overall high power demands in general, one just prefers more current over the other (which a lot of mobile devices just can't provide). But, a higher current demand is pretty typical for a planar. Either way, bot will greatly benefit from additional power from an amp but would otherwise be too quiet on most PCs and phones otherwise. Not unlistenable, you'd just be missing out on what these little devices can really do. Something like the 02 amp or Fiio A5 have enough power to get these drivers moving without the amp clipping so you won't need to spend a ton of cash to get them to sound their best.

I use the PX on my iPhone and S8 a fair amount. Sure, I have to give it at least half volume, but it drives it fine imo.
