Meze Empyrean Isodynamic Hybrid Array Headphones

£2,699.00

The Meze Empyrean are a result of over 30 years of research and development which led to the creation of the first Isodynamic Hybrid Array driver headphone. Meze Audio have collaborated with Rinaro to create a new standard in planar magnetic audio, the resulting technology being one of the lightest and most advanced planar magnetic drivers on the market.

HYBRID ARRAY DRIVER ADVANTAGES


Combines two independently shaped voice coils within the same diaphragm delivering more selective acoustic performance to the various areas within the structure of the ear.
ACCURATE REPRODUCTION
Total harmonic distortion (THD) measures under 0.1% in the whole frequency range

 

LIGHTWEIGHT
Reduced driver weight designed to create a headphone that offers prolonged listening sessions

 

ERGONOMIC SHAPE
Ergonomically shaped driver structure with an increased active area

 

ULTRA-HIGH-RESOLUTION AUDIO
Upper-frequency limit of audio reproduction is 110,000 Hz

 

ULTRA EFFICIENT
100db@1mw/1kHz High performance without needing amplification

 

PATENT PENDING ISODYNAMIC HYBRID ARRAY DRIVER
World's first in planar magnetic headphones

AUDIBLE BENEFITS OF A DUAL DRIVEN SYSTEM


One of the problems with conventional planar magnetic arrays is coming from reflected signals entering the ear canal with different time delays, thereby worsening the focus of 3D sound imaging.
Combining different voice coil configurations makes it possible to create a better sound intensity distribution across the sound wavefront at high frequencies when directed at the auricle and ear canal.
