I thought the same thing at first and I really do think that MEE should offer a non "P" version but AFAIK they are not going to do that. Side note - the mic also doubles as a remote with ipods and some andriod devices if that helps. While I tested both options out I am not using them and they don't really bother me but I do understand why some don't want to pay for something they're not going to use. You could look at the SBA-03 IEMs by Fisher Audio, they're similar in every respect other than a few minor differences in specs, although I haven't tried them out personally so I don't know if they're the same SQ and they are more expensive ...
