Could be a matter of personal taste, but the one I feel comfortable with ear on the pillow is KC06A due to its flat design.

Beyerdynamic xp50ie on Amazon for $32 is another one to consider.

The SMSL sAP-5 is a winner. Just as good as the NX1, if not better. The bass boost option on it is terrible though. Makes mud, not music.

Can't go wrong with either as a neutral amp for portable use.

Can someone please post a picture comparing the pistons and the ttpod t1e side by side? 
I know that the ttpod is probably better sound wise, but I am a bit concerned that they are too bulky, and there's no point in getting them if I feel too self conscious to wear them in public. Also, if anyone has opinions concerning which is better sound-wise or build quality-wise that would be great.

Got my T1-E's in. I can only compare them with my Vsonic GR02 bass edition. First impression is the T1-E sounds a lot clearer and the bass signature is obvious. I can even feel the bass, but I'm not sure if that's due to a bad seal. I might need to try some other tips. I'm using the medium white tips with big hole now. Maybe comply foam tips are better, but these feel pretty good for plastic. They do sound better with a DAC, but fine without one as well. My favourite sound is with DAC (FiiO E17) settings +4 treble +4 bass no volume gain.

Got my replacement pair of T1E from Penonaudio (bigbargainonline on ebay), and now I got BASS!!!  Will go through burn in for the next 40-50hrs before my full review.  I know I have mentioned this before, but that's exactly what sets Penon from other sellers, they always take care of you with a support and warranty replacement.  Even got bonus hybrid eartips with my new pair.

Holly shiit!!!  Only 45 min of burn in and it already sounds great!  The sub-bass texture is sizzling and mid-bass punch is slamming!  Bass is not overpowering, very nice separation from upper mids/treble.  I bit v-shaped, nicely balanced with enhanced controlled bass; upper mids are smooth and warm but still clear, and hopefully will get a little more detailed after burn in.  The same with a treble - need more burn in to make a final assessment.  Decent soundstage too!

 

IMHO, these just knocked down KC06A due to a similar sound signature with more overall enhancements, better soundstage, and sexier design, though KC06A are great when using laying down on a pillow ;) 

 

I can say with certainty, T1E is not a hype!

What eartips are you guys using with your T1-E and do you ear them over ear or not? The seal feels a bit weird for me, as if they aren't really in my ear. Using them with my phone or laptop only (no EQ) they aren't that bassy, but I think that's because of the source?
