Hey Everyone,

Thanks for your interest in the Massdrop x MEE Audio Pinnacle PX! This has been an exciting project to work on with the folks at MEE. With many of our partners, we have to spend a great deal of time explaining the audiophile community. First that it exists, second what it cares about (general terms), and third what specifically our audiophile community wants out of a product (as determined from activity on Massdrop and direct input from select community members). With MEE, they understood all of that right off the bat. Mike Jones and his team were excellent to work with, and the product is better for it.

The Pinnacle PX is based on the Pinnacle P1 (http://bit.ly/2tzs0St).

What is the same?

The sound signature is the same as the P1. All the discussions around the P1's sound on Massdrop are very positive so no changes needed there.

The shape of the earpieces. You can wear these up over the ear or straight down, just like the original P1.

The material of the earpieces. The earpieces are still a Zinc alloy, no changes there.

What's different?

The finish on the ear pieces. The earpieces of the PX are finished in a cerakote pvd coating. This is a robust coating that is scratch-resistant (we understand these won't always be in the case).

The cables are much more robust. The cable itself is a higher gauge, but the connectors have also been reinforced internally and externally for a longer life and sweat resistance (these will do great at the gym).

The price, these are $113.99 shipped to your door in the united states with affordable shipping to all our international destinations.

Thanks for your interest! I'll be offline most of the holiday weekend but I'll do my best to get back to you in a timely fashion : )

I have to delete my account. There is no delivery to Russia, but the email is torn from advertising offers to buy massdrop :(

What about a freight forwarder?
Thanks Massdrop for this awesome product!

Just received my Pinnacle PX and can say that the hype is real. There's a reason why the Pinnacle P1's are one of the most beloved IEM's in the sub $200 market. Massdrop was able to bring these at a considerable discount and anyone should jump on this if you have a decent audio setup.

A word of caution. The power requirement thirst is real to get the most out of these IEM's. I'm currently running the PX's off of a Fiio x7 mark ii and the amp is definitely getting a work out. I would recommend staying away from trying to run the PX's off of a smart phone as you will never be able to reach their potential.

All in all, this drop is an unbeatable deal for those with the right setups and should not be passed up. Keep up the great work Massdrop.

Just received these, they are definitely not your ordinary in-ears. They will require a much more powerful amplifier like the Fiio Q1 and one note, ear tips change the sound signature of the PXs.
TLDR; these in-ear headphones are power hungry!!!
2 weeks to get them from massdrop, not sure how it was even possible! Excited to receive since a channel is going out in my Dunu's. Broken at ear tip mount thing!

I would just get a replacement. Hopefully mines don't arrive broken.

Wow... I hope this doesn't happen to mine!

Been replacing the ear tips to try out the different configurations and this is a good reminder to be gentle!
A little better now)

Forgive my ignorance, but these are just sanded down right? If so, could you walk me through the process?

That's all you'll need.

Nail polish remover, sponge(the part that's circled with red) , cotton swabs, round cotton make up remover and patience)
I got these in a week or so after purchasing, love them so far. I live in Canada and didn't get hit with any duties/taxes oddly, so I feel greatful for that.

These are very comfortable and sounds like I expected. The comply tips that came with these came stuck inside the plastic ziplock bag though, and there was no way of getting them out without tearing them. That's my only gripe.

I'm getting it in Ontario as well, but dang, if it's not for certain, I don't wanna risk it

I think even with taxes/duties, it would add....maybe $30 Cad? It's still cheaper than anywhere else.
Setup: smartphone > xduoo xd-05 > mee audio pinnacle px.
Playing DSD64 & 128.
Bass boost & gain turned off.
Using provided foam tips (largest) Looks: Paint on casings quickly chips off. Just wishin’ for all of it to come off to reveal the silver shells under.
too lazy to remove the paint.
braided cable-LIKE. but length is weird, a wee too long from pocket to ears, but only half as long as desktop headphones.
All in all, look’s awesome-than most buds!
Sound: Clarity - sounds clear but w/ noticeable pink noise, specially in quiet songs & bet. songs!
Soundstage - I don’t see it! (comparing to senn hd558)
Separation - i think it’s good (I’m not sure). I can hear one instrument play on R and a different instrument on the L.
Bass - it’s there for sure even w/ bass boost & gain turned off. I think it’s mostly thanks to the xduoo. Bass was a joke
when I plugged it into a sony pha-2.
Mids - Forward*. Clear but a little grainy (taking into account the price). Extension is ayt, nothing to brag about. Treble - it’s….good. I mean it’s better than the bass but it won’t tickle your “audiophile” ears:) I think...the unbalanced
tone is affecting the presentation coz there’s a lot of detail but I’m not being transported to that higher place.
Music: Norah Jones-Come away w/ me, the drum at the very beginning of the song was clear and did not sound congested, voice
was smoky as usual:) Eltin John - Your Song - I heard a lot of detail, vocal & piano sounded forward. Marvin Gaye - Ain’t no mountain high - great detail but grainy & mids were “shouty” w/c makes the tone unbalanced. Todd Turkisher - Drum Solo (* DSD128) - Bass is good! Sounded clearer, no pink noise like 3 DSD64s above, less grainy.
Amber Rubarth - Storms Are on the Ocean - sounds sweet, yup DSD128 is cleaner!
Nitpicking: Noticeable pink noise (depends on the recording). A wee grainy. Unbalanced tone.

Compared to other earbuds I’ve tried, w/c are: bowers & wilkins C5 S2 (bought new, paid $80, got too much bass in return), VE monks plus (price king), philips tx2 (fav sound signature in this lot), focal sphear (not my kind of “highs”), audio technica sonic fuel ath-ckx9iS (meh), mee pinn px is best sounding w/ out a doubt.

Final thoughts: not bad, pretty good, need to consider at the price!
I just recently received a pair of Pinnacle PX, and the audio is muffled when plugged into my Schiit Fulla 2. In order for it to sound normal, I have to hold down the inline remote button. Does anyone have a solution for this?

Buy a better 1/4" adapter. The one that came with my HD 6XX works great with the earbuds that have remote controls on them. So probably pick up the 1/4" sennheiser adapter.

It could be because the dac/amp doesnt recognize the inline remote as an audio source , so theres probably interference with the source. Just get an mmcx cable without an inline remote
I got a pair of these and a Fiio X3 III for xmas. I'm loving the sound quality and the comfort, but I'm wishing that they had a little more bass. But so far, they are great for my listening pleasure at work and walking the dog. I've found that using the EQ to maximize the sound profile is necessary on some music. Funny enough, I find Zepplin and RHCP do best with the classical setting. While Mingus and Mangione sound great with the Jazz and ?Metal? EQ settings.

The bass just seems to distort a tiny bit on the heaving bass songs. Could be my X3 sans an external AMP, but I'm only on 82 out of 120 on volume.
Well my cable broke after a month, are these under the waranty? because i wont buy another 50$ cable if its going to work for a month...
Damnation
you can use any mmcx cable. There are like $7 cables
