Meze 99 Classics Closed Headphones
The Meze 99 Classics delivers perfect natural sound even to the pickiest of audio lovers. The walnut wood earcups, soft earpads, and the spring steel headband will make the 99 Classics an heirloom rather than just a pair of headphones.
We're taking headphone design to a new level by combining modern with hand crafted design, using natural materials and focusing on delivering the best premium sound.
Our aim is to change the perception of headphones as technical devices or as cheap plastic accessories and create a mature product to fall in love with.
The metal hardware is cast zinc and manganese spring steel.

Just like fingerprints, wood grain is as unique, thus making each pair of Meze Headphone a one of a kind. You will love how they feel in your hands. Sturdy built and precise assembly. The ear cups are made with a satin finished wood grain. Put them on, sit back, and enjoy your favourite sound of plucked strings, upbeat grooves or thumping beats while still looking classy
The choice of wood is an inherently difficult one. The rich colours of walnut require the use of air drying, a long and expensive procedure. The process of shaping just a single pair of earcups takes up to 8 hours. The whole process of sanding, lacquering, and finishing lasts 45 days. The wooden components are carefully inspected and no flaws are permitted to reach the final assembly.
It is worth mentioning that all the wood that we use in our headphones is strictly harvested from sources with certificate of origin. That is, mature trees that have reached the end of their life cycle. This way, we are helping the environment and we're giving the old trees a chance to shine one more time in the shape of Meze headphones.
