LIRIC Portable Isodynamic Hybrid Array Closed-Back, Over-Ear Headphones, by Meze Audio.

A blend of high build quality, excellent comfort, and utterly life-like, immersive sound, LIRIC is the first closed-back headphone powered by the Rinaro Isodynamic Hybrid Array Driver, re-engineered for portable use.

Meze wanted LIRIC to express the very thing that makes them Meze – cutting-edge technology embodied into an artful, almost sculptural frame. While different than anything they have done before, LIRIC preserves the same design language characteristic to us, with new additions in terms of materials and ergonomic approach.

LIRIC features the state-of-the-art technology developed by Rinaro, re-engineered for day-to-day use. The MZ4 Isodynamic Hybrid Array driver was scaled down and tuned to deliver an audio experience in-line with its larger counterparts found in Empyrean and Elite.

Combined with the closed-back design, this helps preserve the original clarity and emotion of your favourite music through enhanced sound and minimized external noise. Each driver is entirely hand assembled and tested in Rinaro’s industrial facility in Ukraine.

Created exclusively for Meze Audio, the MZ4 driver offers the same dual shaped voice coil array seen in the Meze Empyrean. Over 30 years of R&D have gone into developing this technology, resulting in one of the lightest and most advanced planar magnetic drivers on the market. A new innovation to the MZ4 driver developed in-house by Rinaro is the Phase-X™ system, which improves ambience and spatial sound imaging, often found to be a problem in closed-back headphone designs.
