View Full Discussion 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.
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 $114.99 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 : )

Mike Jones is very good at communicating with customers, I had quite a long email conversation with him about the possibility of Mee producing a cable with a Lightning connector, and he was very forthcoming about cost implications, etc, and it was him tipped me off about the Shure cable, which he'd seen announced at an electronics trade show, he said that it would be almost impossible for Mee to produce a Lightning cable cheaper than the $88 that Shure are charging!
@WillThank you for the information!
I only have a question about the warranty...
I mailed both Massdrop's support and Mee's support.
Mee claims that PX comes with a warranty just like the P1 (2 years), while Massdrop claims that there is no warranty at all.
So.. there is or not?
I'd love to know this as well!
Hey DannyZ, warranty on the PX is the same as the P1, two years. If you need to claim the warranty, you'll want to reach out to Massdrop support, we handle all the incoming requests so we can vet the problem and provide replacements.
Alright, Mee told me there is.
Will the $15 add on cable be in the same vein as the upgraded in-line mic cable?
Is the $15 cable an additional cable or does it replace the the cable with the mic?
Additional cable, same as the $30 one available from MEE Audio.
Any chance these will ship earlier?
@Will which carrier will you be using to ship these? USPS? UPS? Or?
They typically use FedEx for every order in my experience. 20+.
@Will Hi, i am interested to get but i would like the 15 bucks extra cable but seem like its sold out?
Yeah same here, came to join the drop and realized the extra cable is sold out. Hopefully the drop will be available in the future with the cable included.
Write that on all international shipments, but do not send to Russia. It's very sad.
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?
I bought my PX last October, but it seems today right after 4 months of verycareful and casual use, my cable stopped functioning properly, it cuts from the jack every time the cable moves a bit. What should be the procedure to claim warranty as I contacted Massdrop but have not got any replies yet. Thank you.
Why can not you ship to Japan?
If possible we would like shipping to Japan also correspond!!!
Just received my pair and right out of the box the left ear cable is defective. Has massdrop replied yetto you? I have just messaged them and awaiting response Aswell.
