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.

What amp are you using?
Xerclif
He didnt amp them probably, they are 50 Ohms. If they were properly amped, he's probably tone deaf.
Will this be a drop again soon? Also, did everyone receive their order from the last drop?
Okay, so for my situation, it looks like something went wrong with the courier and the IEMs were lost in transit.
If you haven't received yours yet, then you might be experiencing the same problem. Head on to the Help Center (https://massdrop.com/helpcenter) and open up a ticket to ask for a refund. My refund is being processed as we speak.
Now, you have two options: 1) Wait for the next drop and hope that one goes well. 2) Wait for the Pinnacle P2, which is coming this Spring (https://twitter.com/MEEaudio/status/817799227807907840)
I know what I'm picking.
Any updates

I had the same problem and contacted Help Center about it. I'll link you the comment I made on the status of the drop: https://www.massdrop.com/buy/mee-audio-pinnacle-p1/talk/627849
Individual packages have started to ship. The vendor confirmed earlier that majority of the group's order has been sent out with the rest scheduled for pickup shortly. Once your package is scanned into the courier's system an email will be sent with shipping confirmation and tracking info.

These or the Nobles?

I don't know about the Nobles, but I find these, and a lot of other people too, to be the equivalent of HD600, only IEM instead. Depends on how much bass you want, they might not be the one.

Interesting - I've never owned any 600+ senns (usually go the akg route) i just need a good daily i so that does sound appealing
why this product cannot be shipped to singapore?
At this price point, I would recommend anyone to buy this in a heartbeat. I got it since March (serial no 625) and they're super detailed and both the housing and the cable are excellent. Even the packaging is premium.
Bassheads might not like it so much since it doesn't rock your head, but the bass are there and very clean and still have the impact.

Does the P1 need to be driven? I'm still considering if there is need for a DAC/AMP since this is my first foray into TOTL IEMs.

A lot of people suggest getting an amp, but I don't think you need one. I'm using it straight out of my laptop and iphone. Volume wise, for normal consumer IEM, I use 3-4 bars in the iphone, but I need to go to 8 bars for the P1. Getting an amp would probably improve the quality, however, I'd suggest you get the IEM first then decides if you want the amp at a later time.
I also own this as well as many other IEMs from Shure, RHA, Sennheiser, Sony, Etymōtic and a host of others.
This has such a sweet balance of great sound and comfort that I don't miss the volume buttons it doesn't have. It is by far my favorite of my in-ears, followed by the Sennheiser Momentum and RHA T20i. The Shure 535 sounds great but it is huge in my ears. Interesting that although I like balanced armature IEMs my favorites are dynamics.
And the Pinnacle P1 is one hell of a dynamic IEM.
Mine came under stress in my bag, and the stainless sound tube came loose from the alloy housing. MEE Audio replaced it under warranty no questions asked.
This IEM goes with me everywhere I go.

I had the same issue & lost the nozzle. MEE Audio had me send the earphone back to them & they quickly sent back a complete earphone. I actually still have a warranty replaced A161P from them as well. Major kudos to MEE's customer service.
I've wanted these since Mee announced them way back and even was active on the head-fi thread for a while. But this price isn't really that great. Just my opinion, but I shared a deal a while back for around $130 (I think it was) new for them. I'd like to see massdrop get them to atleast $150-$160. I'm not denying that this iem doesn't punch way above its class and is worth retail...but I'm more stingy these days.
I have these buds and they absolutely blew me away. For $180 no reason not to get them if you are questioning your buds right now. The ONLY downfall is that the bass is not booming. It is most definitely there and will surprise you in quantity at times. But these buds have improved the way I listen to music and everything is absolute quality, promise you will not be disappointed. Btw, if you are looking for isolation, these make everything 0. I mean there could be a band playing right next to you wouldn't know unless you felt the vibrations from the floor! Got these straight from their website for $200.
I sold my Shure 215 SE's for these. P1 is a great IEM, I much prefer these to the 215's. The 215's just had too much bass but I guess that is what the clear blue 215 SE version is for. The cables are really nice as well, definitely quality, and the magnetic carrying pouch is a nice touch compared to the zipper canvas of the Shure's. This is a steal for sure.

I had the blue SE215's, and the P1 is certainly an upgrade. But if one enjoyed the sound profile of the 215's, the P1 might sound a bit thinner since the amount of bass present is significantly less. Furthermore, I find the P1 much harder to drive than the SE215's, with listening to the P1 at almost max volume on my Zenfone 3. That said, when driven properly with a good source the P1 is definitely a better sounding pair of IEMs than the SE215.
How do these sound compared to the Shure SE 215s?

it does make a difference. i tried to use se215 cable and fiio mmcx cable. diff sound signatures.
well, i dunno where you are located but here you can audition the amps.

I'm from the US, and Chicago isn't the best place when it comes to high fidelity audio since there's very little knowledgeable people here when it comes to music. I was lucky that I love the hd600s when I pulled my trigger for it coz then I had no idead how it sounds.
Just bought it last week.
I own this and it's every bit worth it. $200 is a steal, 180 is an absolute steal
Get on this people. I already have the P1 and it's amazing..worth ever penny and then some
Noooooooo I just bought it at MSRP a month ago. Fate why are you so cruel?
......On second thought maybe I should get a spare
