Quite possibly the most comfortable headphone we've ever tried here at Audio Sanctuary, we first listened to the Meze Audio at the Festival of Sound in Hammersmith, London, where after numerous prototypes the Empyrean was finally ready to be unveiled in all its glory.
Gaining great acclaim with their 99 Classic and 99 Neo headsets, Meze have broken through the sound barrier straight into the high-end premium headphone market with the Empyrean. Breaking new technological ground in collaboration with Rinaro Dynamics, Meze have designed the worlds first Isodynamic hybrid array driver, resulting in a headphone that has a completely linear bass response without any artificial treble spikes that give the illusion of extra detail.
A blend of premium materials, exquisite craftsmanship and detailing that’s unmistakably Meze, Empyrean is one of the most technologically innovative planar magnetic headphones in the world.
Empyrean is the product of two passionate companies - Meze Audio & Rinaro Isodynamics - 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.
The Empyrean Driver combines individual switchback and spiral-shaped voice coils, their unique shapes allowing sound to be targeted with more accuracy around the natural form of the ear. This unique combination generates an increased exposure of direct sound wave frequencies over the 10kHz range and improves imaging and localization by decreasing the impact of shortwave time delays caused by diffused field reflections.
For the audiophiles who want to hear how 30 years of progression sound like, Empyrean pairs the advances in audio reproduction with a headphone chassis that delivers extended hours of listening pleasure.
