I have the P1's and absolutely LOVE them. They provide a really nice warm full sound, with decent bass reach. This really was my "Pinnacle" IEM...until the Nova came along. I jumped on the Drop, and will happily audition the P1 against the Nova. For $115, the P1 is an incredible bargain. I have not had any problems with the MMCX cables, nor fit. They are my daily driver. Using Comply's the sound is just what I am looking for, albeit a bit hard to drive with my 6+. But, as I said I jumped on the Nova. I will probably give the P1's to my son or wife, should I like the Nova more. Or keep them for comparison purposes. I don't think I helped you decide, except that they are both incredible pieces of kit. Choose one, be happy, and save for the Andromeda if you desire. I can say with a high degree of certainty that the Nova will be the last expensive pair I purchase for a long time. Best of luck, cheers!
