View Full Discussion Jumping in to say I've used the PX for many months now and have been quite happy with the sound. They do great when with a powerful source (V20, DAPs). While analytical I haven't found them too harsh with lower-quality recordings. Still OK out of my laptop jack but I have to turn up the volume a bit (OI is a non-issue due to high impedance/single DD architecture).
Funnily for a DD the bass extension is not the best out there (still great and not 'missing' things, way more than BAs), with the air and realism of things like a kick drum hard for most BAs to match unless you are moving much higher up the price range. If you look at the FR the mids have slightly different emphasis so while some find it unnatural I still find it ok, but noted that violins can sound a little thin from the Mee. There is just a slight sibilant/metallic edge to certain instruments but I have been pleased with the tonality. Soundstage is great for this IEM and now that I've gotten used to it, gives me problems when comparing with other IEMs with narrower staging. PRAT is also great, the PX does not shy away from pieces with more fine details and doesn't come up short against BAs. Definitely a fun DD to keep.
Also, PRAT is really class leading and you will be hard pressed to find IEMs in this range with the amount of resolving detail that really is right there with BAs, This is the main reason why it's difficult for me to find a decent upgrade to the PX.
Build quality isn't too bad, my only gripe is the finish which doesn't bond well with the metal. Got rid of almost all of it so it doesn't look patchy. I had an intermittent connection near the L-plug but Massdrop was quick to send a new cable. Other than that initial fluke I actually am pretty impressed with the sturdiness and feel of the MMCX cable, and may use them on other IEMs if needed.
Great product and amazing value for the PX compared to P1 prices for virtually the same product. Disclaimer - I subscribe to the notion that cables rarely make a difference unless it changes resistance significantly and the earphone specs suggest sensitivity to that change - e.g. very conductive cables for very low impedance multi-BAs. The P1 cable may look nice but I think forgoing that cable for a much better price is worth it.
Woah those look great! How did you strip off the finish exactly? Mine is starting to chip away and it looks pretty gross.
2 ways, hard metal file/ruler, or nail polish.
I used a mix of both and fingernail scratching where it was loose. Highly discourage nail polish until the end as it is gooey and hard to keep clean. Just don't be stupid like me - leave the full Mee logo intact - trust me it is hard to remove so only the "M" is left. I have a random raw metal splotch there.
If you scroll further down you will see some experts even sanded/polished for a nicer look and one even electroplated the PX to a cool shade if you are interested :)
Great review I agree with your points on the sound so much. The bass is pretty sad really but the clarity and sound stage is excellent. I also found something off with the mids and couldn't really put my finger on it.
What is ur package weight.is they come in with cardboard box?massdrop px
I can't remember. It's not bulky and way smaller than the P1 packaging. Definitely under 500g, but shipping is paid already when you join the drop.
No they come in cardboard box
