MEE Audio's new flagship is now available on their website for $199: http://www.meeaudio.com/pinnacle
Pinnacle is more than a name - it is a statement that identifies the P1 in-ear headphones as the result of two years of design, engineering, and refinement, the flagship of our critically acclaimed product line, and our highest-performing headphone ever.
Top-tier audio performance was the primary goal of Pinnacle development from day one. To achieve our target frequency response, clarity, and resolution, the P1 utilizes an advanced high-impedance moving coil transducer and patented acoustic diffuser.
The Pinnacle P1 was engineered to deliver engaging, dynamic audio with great clarity and crisp detailing. The tuning target was developed by combining our past in-ear earphone experience with feedback from fans and critics to create a sound that is rich and musical, yet remains accurate to the source and makes audible the finest nuances in your music. The bass is impactful but never overwhelms the rest of the audio spectrum, so you won’t have to strain to hear the details. Add the natural soundstage and excellent handling of spatial cues and the result is an unparalleled concert-in-your-head experience*.
The Pinnacle P1 utilizes a proprietary 10mm moving coil driver with 50Ω impedance to improve performance at the extremes of the frequency range. The dynamic driver delivers a full-bodied bass note and slightly warm tonal character while retaining high levels of resolution and refinement. A copper-clad aluminum voice coil is used reduce the driver’s moving mass, allowing for faster, more controlled driver movement and raising high frequency performance and resolution.
A proprietary sound chamber and damping scheme provide the best balance of treble extension and smooth-in-the-ear response. The P1’s patented acoustic diffuser takes advantage of the directional nature of treble (high frequency) sound waves, forcing select frequencies to resonate before reaching the ear to ensure coherency and smoothness. This effectively improves the detailing and high-frequency extension of the P1 without adding harshness, resulting in treble that is extended and energetic, but also smooth for a more realistic sound with improved detail resolution and handling of spatial cues.
The earpieces are die-cast from a zinc alloy – a world’s first for in-ear earphones – and hand-polished to provide a look and feel worthy of a flagship. Zinc alloy is more rigid and has better impact resistance than aluminum, yet offers significant weight savings compared to stainless steel, resulting in a less bulky feel in the ear.
