For the audiophiles who want to hear how 30 years of progression sound like, the new Meze Empyrean Elite pairs the advances in audio reproduction with a headphone chassis that delivers extended hours of listening pleasure.

Building on the immense success of the Empyrean model of 2018, Meze Audio introduce a brand new isodynamic hybrid array model to their high-end headphone range.

Rinaro at heart

ELITE is the product of a continued partnership with Ukrainian planar magnetic driver manufacturer Rinaro Isodynamics. Each ELITE model features a newly designed MZ3SE hybrid array driver featuring Rinario's trademarked Parus diaphragm material.

Parus is unique polymer film strengthened by a semi-crystalline microstructure. When harnessed within a Rinaro driver, the material exhibits remarkable traits of stiffness and stability, producing a natural sound transparency along with a wide and articulate soundstage.

The MZ3SE driver builds on the pioneering technology of the flagship MZ3 driver found in the Empyrean headphone. The innovative Isodynamic Hybrid Array technology delivers a more selective acoustic performance to the various areas within the structure of the ear. Advances in diaphragm materials have opened the doors to even higher resolution and accuracy of the sound reproduction, setting a new benchmark in headphone design.

Dual coil technology

ELITE utilises two separate coil technologies, switchback for lower frequencies and spiral for mid and upper frequencies. This specific configuration enables improved frequency targeting for individual parts of the aural canal, presenting a clearer soundstage and superior balance.

Personalise your soundstage

Each ELITE headphone ships with two distinct ear pad options which attach to the earcup assembly purely through the demagnetised field of the hybrid array drivers. 30mm Alacantara pads are supplied for an experience similar to suede, along with a newly developed 25mm 'hybrid' pads for real leather feel as well as the internal flexibility of Alacantara
