.....and don't forget, they also have beryllium dynamic drivers, just like the **** 4in1's. There's something about beryllium that makes it all worth it!

I also have to say that I like the sound of dynamic drivers way more than the sound of ba drivers.

And because they´re rear vented, the bass goes really really deep. Somewhere I´ve read they have a "moderate bass response". Wait, what??!! They pump up my head with crazy amounts of sub-bass!

What tips are you using? 


The ones that came with them. They create a perfect seal, nothing to complain about. 
They have the most wonderful treble I´ve ever heard. Damn, I guess I have to order one more, to have a spare one, just in case.

The original tips hurt my ears cause of the housing. Guess they were not made for me.

Considering the P2 was competing head-to-head with the EDse, which has since been pretty much considered bested in those metrics by the earphones mentioned, I suspect it will fall a little short. It's not a bad earphone by any means, but it's running a little long in the tooth at this point. Interested in what clear1 has to say.

After finding the right tuning for them by swapping the tips for Xiaomi hybrid tips, I personally think they are still a step above in a crisp-like clarity against the ED9 and ATE's. But, again the sound signatures are different in per say crispy VS airy = still clear.
 
.....I didn't have the ZS3 long enough to compare or review and I don't own the HDS1, Tenmark Piano or PRO to compare as well.

After changing the Piston 2's silicone tips more then 6 months ago and replacing them with the Xiaomi hybrid tips, that all changed for me. That's why I favor the P2 over the EDSE. After the changes made, the coherency of the P2 are just a better listening experience for me.

I found out that the 1more piston classic I´ve bought are the latest revision of the Xiaomi P2. They´ve changed the beryllium to aerograde space titanium for the driver, which creates in an even better sound performance to the old P2. They were tuned by the same Sound Engineer, who was responsible for the sound of the P2.
