The H3 foregoes the usual boosted highs and lows that can be heard from most headphones/earphones in favor of a more refined approach. The bass is not overpowering, and instead is controlled, delivering good punch without adding bloat to the mids. The mids sound very natural and warm, so vocals and guitars really sound good with these earphones. The highs deliver a lot of detail with good clarity, yet does not get harsh in any way. These earphones are easy to listen, and work best with classical, jazz and vocal heavy genres. See More
The value and craftsmanship that the Pinnacle P1 offers is hard to beat at this price range. They are durable due to the metal earpieces. The stand-out build quality is complemented by a detailed and balanced sound, braided cables and a large assortment of ear tips. See More
The sound signature is very balanced, with no frequencies taking over the rest in terms of extension. The highs are clear and airy, but do not sound harsh. The mids are smooth and rich yet are not too forward and do not creep up on the highs. The bass has good level of punch and extension, but is also controlled so there's no booming and won't muddy up the mids. This sound makes these in-ears great for those who value sound accuracy over a fun and boosted sound, and as such work really well with all types of music. See More
Despite being made out of metal, the earpieces are actually quite lightweight. Combined with the good fit, these headphones stay in the ears pretty well without tiring your or ears or causing discomfort. This makes them very easy to wear for hours straight. See More
The focus of the sound signature is the bass. The low frequencies have good extension and have great sub bass rumble. This makes the headphones great for pop, hip-hop, house, EDM and similar styles of music. The highs have good detail but do not have that shimmer up top. Mids are also not too forward but are present and have a smoothness to it that makes vocals good to listen to. Overall, these headphones are quite versatile, with bass heads most likely to be satisfied by its sound. See More
While the cable itself is not a problem, the connectors between the cable and earpieces can be an issue. There have been a number of instances where the MMCX connection has been damaged quite easily. There are also cases where there is no electrical connection despite the cables being properly connected physically. See More
While the thickness and stiffness of the cable helps keep it durable and tangle-resistant, it also has the drawback of moving the earpieces if the cable is moved. This can lead to the random dislodging of the earpieces, especially if you're on the move. See More
It includes universal yellow foam ear tips, triple flange ear tips, single flange ear tips and standard foam tips. You also get a carrying case for the headphones. With these accessories, you will have many options in terms of in-ear comfort and seal. The carrying case should also make it much easier for you to bring these on the go. See More
The highs stand out from the sound signature. There is a nice level of detail along with an airy and shimmery feel. Cymbals and high pitched sound sources sound fantastic and accurate with these. The mids are also pretty good as they are slightly forward, rich and smooth. Vocals, especially female vocals are very pleasing to listen to. The bass is slightly recessed though. While the low frequencies are present and may be enough for most, bass heads might find the bass to be lacking. See More
The earpieces are made from high quality plastic which is fairly lightweight yet feels solid as well. The two cables that come with these headphones are fairly thick and flexible. One of the cables is even braided, which adds to overall durability. See More
