So the Echobox Nomads are on backorder and my order was cancelled. I have been waiting for a long time for these and was really hoping to finally listen to them. This is most disappointing.
how do these compared to audio technica m50x headphones?
Can anyone provide input on how these compare to the Mee Pinnacle P1/PX? I have a pair, which I love, but have one major issue with: They are slightly too large. The tubes are just a little too thick for my ear canals, and the IEM itself is just a little too big for my ear so it sticks out some and makes it difficult to lay down with them in. I'm hoping to find a new set of IEMs that are durable and comfortable, have a somewhat similar sound profile (or at least don't sound thin or tinny), but are just slightly smaller so they fit my ears better.
Is there an option for no inline mic/volume controls? This is one thing I hate about IEM manufacturers. Always slapping on a mic/volume controls, which I consider a weak point in the earbuds/cables.

We have a replaceable MMCX cable on it - so you can customize the cable to be however you want it to be :)
Just an FYI about the tuning filters, the included manual states "The Nomad comes with three filters: black, silver, and red. The silver filter, which comes installed on the earphones, offers a warmer sound, with more bass and less emphasis on treble, while the black filter creates a more balanced signature, and the red filter is the brightest of the three." I'm pretty sure this is incorrect. The silver filter was indeed installed out-of-the-box, but was harsh af and severely lacking in bass imo. According to all of the other reviews of the Nomad N1 I've found, the black filter is bass and the silver filter is balanced (and red is still treble). After switching to black, the upper range harshness decreased significantly and the bass and midrange improved (vocals probably improved the most). Sub-bass (<70Hz) still seems lacking somewhat for an IEM of this size and the upper frequencies (~3-5kHz) still seem slightly harsh, but the improvement over the pre-installed silver filter is quite remarkable.  Anyone else have the same results with the filters?
(Edited)
Is Echobox out of business now? Their website (echoboxaudio.com) was working fine a few days ago, and now only comes up as a 'parked' domain. Just received my Nomads yesterday and wanted to see if I could buy a 2nd cable to ship out for shortening and re-termination (that way I'd still have the original cable if the custom job goes south).

Sorry for the delays, there's been a lot going on in the past weeks. Send me a note directly. I'll take care of you. Josh@eboxaudio.com

I sent an email to you and you have NOT responded. I consider that NOT taken care of.
I entered the Finder drop twice because they were so good for the drop price. They need burn in but very excellent iems. I'm probably going to enter this drop as a step up...I have no concern about build, SQ or other issues. My only debate is whether I really need to upgrade since the Finders are so excellent and have a brighter treble which I like! No need to worry about Echobox the company, in my experience. Happy New Year to All!

These are amazing earphones - I'd strongly consider an upgrade :)
Any compare with this and nuforce hem8 and ue900
If you want it sooner, Amazon has it for 35% off right now. Comes out to 162.50.
I’m a pretty big supporter of Echobox as I helped crowdfund their initial Finders. However, what’s with describing absolutely no technical specs on these? I’m sorry, but that’s approaching Beats/Bose level smoke & mirrors bullish!t.

Thanks but I trust dedicated audio reviewers more than mainstream reviewers as I find that most if not all mainstream tech reviewers can't accurately describe sound due to their lack of accurate terminology when it comes to describing sound. B9Scrambler (The Contraptionist) has written a review of the N1 in case anybody wants to read a proper review https://thecontraptionist.blog/2018/08/06/echobox-nomad-home-at-last/

Thanks for dropping a link. AudioFool also wrote some good coverage of them if you want another non-mainstream alternative: https://audiofool.reviews/2018/10/08/echobox_nomad_n1a/ His review is of my sample so you get two takes on the exact same iem, and his scoring system (something I refuse to add to my site) is particularly stringent which I know some of you will appreciate.
