Meze Audio does not follow trends or let them influence the audio quality or design of their products. They develop their own aesthetic language thus creating timeless design. Style must always be a by-product of high functionality and ergonomics. As classics have to outlive seasonal fashions, they design with long product life in mind.
Meze Audio headphones embodies the classical values of clarity, balance and harmony. This is not a trend and it’s not intended to last for just a season. These are classics to fall in love with. Starting with the 99 Neo and Classic, all the way to the beautiful Empyrean.
Meze Audio was founded in 2011 in Baia Mare, Romania. They started small, acquiring knowledge by experimenting with parts already on the market, searching and researching for the right materials and engineering solutions in the quest for the perfect sound and feel. Their breakthrough year was 2015, when, after many years of development, the 99 Classics were launched. They keep receiving awards and nominations that are beyond anyone’s expectations and are placing the 99 at the top of its category. Today all our models, headphones and earphones, are developed in-house from the ground up, in the spirit of our original ‘no-compromise’ vision.
In 2019 they introduced the Empyrean headphones. Empyrean is the product of two passionate companies coming together to explore what is possible beyond their individual capabilities. The result is a no-compromise headphone embodying Meze’s daring aesthetic and user-centered design approach and Rinaro’s experience in research and development within the field of planar magnetics.
Meze Audio’s sound signature is tuned for long listening sessions same as the ergonomics: clarity without harshness, freshness without fatigue. We know a headphone is complete when it makes you forget about the outside world and takes you for a dive into the universe of your own feelings.
