Redefining Audio Mastery – Introducing Meze Audio Empyrean II


Meze Audio is introducing Empyrean II – innovative planar magnetic headphones that mark the brand’s continuous pursuit of audio perfection. Building on the acclaim of the original Empyrean – already one of the most technologically advanced designs – this new generation emerges as a symphony of artistry, innovation and craftsmanship.


For their second-generation model, Meze Audio’s specialists have further refined the exceptional Isodynamic Hybrid Array driver design from Rinaro Isodynamics, delivering a step-change performance. “When creating Empyrean II, our goal was to enhance the headphones’ ability to reproduce fine details and achieve a more neutral sound signature, all the while preserving the original “easy to listen to” character. With this in mind, our engineers have masterfully harnessed the driver’s power to reveal new possibilities in terms of responsiveness and accuracy and even make the driver more reliable in challenging acoustic environments.” explains Mircea Fanatan – Meze Audio’s Managing Director .



Artistry meets impeccable comfort

Crafted with precision via CNC milling, Empyrean II’s frame features a sleek black matte finish with silver accents, and a redesigned aluminium grille inspired by art deco artistry. With a nod to the past and a vision for the future, the new headphone is a testament to Meze Audio’s passion for blending classic aesthetics with modern sophistication. You will want to listen to the Empyrean II for hours. Following the same comfort standards as the entire Meze portfolio, these headphones are deliberately structured to minimise weight and pressure and instantly adapt to the shape of your head.


New Duo earpads for a tailored experience

Empyrean II also comes with two sets of earpads included, each designed for a different experience. Our most advanced earpads in the Empyrean series to date, the all-new Duo Earpads are bespoke to Empyrean II. Crafted from a precise blend of premium leather and Alcantara, they introduce a contemporary look and tone. With leather forming the base half and Alcantara covering the rest, these earpads deliver a harmonious tonal balance that resonates across all music genres. For a classic audiophile experience, the Angled Alcantara Earpads excel at rendering intricate details and nuances in your recordings. The angled shape creates more space inside the earpad, which translates to an airier sound signature, with cleaner bass and improved midrange presence.



The Empyrean II will be delivered with a choice of a Meze Audio PCUHD Copper or Silver Premium cable available with 2.5mm, 3.5mm, 4.4mm, 6.35mm or 4-pin XLR connector. The Empyrean II will be delivered with a new high-strength ABS plastic suitcase with foam inserts and leather handle.
