With its proprietary acoustic design and innovative zinc-alloy construction, the MEE audio Pinnacle P1 delivers a timeless combination of beauty and performance.
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. For years headphone fans all around the world have recognized MEE audio as one of the go-to brands for getting the most bang for your buck, and the Pinnacle stays true to the MEE brand by bringing serious value for money to high-end in-ear headphones.
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 superb sound quality and resolution of high-fidelity headphones are most audible when listening to recordings in CD (or better) quality. To experience the full potential of the P1, we recommend avoiding music that has undergone excessive dynamic range compression or been digitally compressed into low-bitrate formats.
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.
**While no special equipment is required to enjoy the Pinnacle P1, using a dedicated audio source or amplifier designed for higher-impedance headphones can further improve the listening experience.
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.
Silver-plated 99.99% pure copper stereo audio cable ensures the richest detail retrieval and highest performance when using the Pinnacle P1 with high-end audio systems.
