I am going to sing the praises of these IEM’s so blatantly and loudly that I expect plenty of people to be skeptical. Sound quality is where the TinHifi P1 excel. A detailed earphone that sounds good with almost anything and delivers an authentic high fidelity experience. Tin aren’t the first to bring planar technology to the market, but this earphone is just so right it’s impossible for me to ignore. The T2 was instantly a hit, and whilst the T2 Pro fell a tad short, the T3 was able to make up for its shortcomings. The P1 are decent isolators depending on your insertion depth and tips used.

The transition point from upper mids to lower treble is slightly more visible than the lower transitions but still fairly clean by comparison to others in its class.

If you don’t want to believe me, then don’t. No bleed or bloom, and no obvious transition points from one thing into the next. It has no such lift and thus it takes a bit more effort to pick out certain details in the music. I found that my Burson Fun tends to hiss with very sensitive IEMs (not what it was designed for, I know) but was nearly dead silent with the P1 so its lower sensitivity might help tame that for you too.
