How's the isolation & comfort on it ?

I consider these my most comfortable IEMS, even more so than my customs. I have actually worn them to sleep and I sleep on my side. They're a little cold upon initial insertion due to the zinc alloy construction, but you can warm them up a bit in your hands before use. Sizewise they are about 50% larger than the Westone UM 10, which are tiny little beans anyway. Isolation is great with silicone tips. I do need to crank them to about 55-60% volume out of my iPod as they do like a little more power, but amping isn't necessary. I'm glad Massdrop decided not to add memory wiring as the cables work well when worn over the ear. The braided cable is really sturdy and thick. The one button mic cable works well on iOS devices. I haven't tested it on Android devices, but can test them.

Thanks for the feedback about wearing to sleep as that is one criteria I was searching for an IEM nowadays.

About wearing them to sleep... I'm not so sure about the PX, but I have the P1 and the wiring on one side becomes exposed after about a month of sleeping on that side. I've been through one cable already because the audio on that side was completely lost.

The cable on the PX looks a bit different near the plastic connector, but I don't know that that protector would be enough. Thought I would give a bit of fair warning, as I am going to have to buy a heavy-duty braided cable if I want to keep using these in bed.

I haven't had issues with my cable. I use the same cable at the gym with my customs and the MMCX connection is holding up as well. I also use the same cable with my Jupiter when listening on the go & I want playback control. I guess your mileage may vary. They have reinforced this area on the PX though so that should allay some fears.

Yikes, sorry to hear that and thanks for the warning. Yes the PX does have an additional plastic that acts as sort of strain relief based on the pictures. At least it's replaceable. :)

HI, i too use IEMS to help me sleep and the ones I use are from Shure, both the 215 & the 535's. I noticed that the connectors used for the Shure a re the same as the Mee Pinnacles both being MMCX. I bring this up as I feel the cables from Shure are very robust and have survived me sleeping and tumbling around bed for the past year or so. Perhaps one could use the Shure cables with the Mee Audio Pinnacle Px? I am considering doing so and perhaps also purchasing the silver coated cable separately. Perhaps Massdrop can work out a deal to sell said cables to their customer (hint hint)?
