Romanian manufacturer Meze Audio are back with another high-end offering featuring hybrid array technology from long-term collaborators Rinaro Isodynamics. The musically and appropriately named LIRIC these closed-back headphones seeks to set a new benchmark in high-quality immersive audio on the go.

Marking Meze’s first model to incorporate hybrid array driver technology into a closed-back headphone design, portable audio fans are treated to a new isodynamic performance with LIRIC closed-back headphone

Main Features

  • Closed-back isodynamic headphone
  • Rinaro Isodynamics driver technology
  • New MZ4 hybrid array driver
  • Ultra high resolution / low distortion
  • Lightweight driver design
  • Easy to drive at 30 ohm impedance
  • Phase-X™ linear phasing technology
  • Ovoid earcups for maximum coverage and comfort

Meze signature form & function

As with other high-end headphones from Meze Audio, LIRIC’s design is a perfectly executed balance of timeless aesthetics, cutting edge audio technology and the comfort to enable listening sessions as long as one could ask for. And LIRIC delivers these qualities with remarkable confidence on each front.

LIRIC’s brand new MZ4 driver developed by Rinaro Isodynamics features premium materials, an iso-planar diaphragm with sizeable active area, and dual voice coils (switchback and spiral) configured for the perfect immersive experience.

MZ4 aims to recreate the detail enjoyed in Meze’s higher-end players, such as Empyrean and Elite, all in an expertly scaled compact portable headphone.

LIRIC is the first closed-back headphone to be powered by Rinaro’s Isodynamic Hybrid Array driver. 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.

Phase-X technology

Another innovation of the MZ4 is Rinaro’s Phase-X system designed to reduce phase distortion - an issue often exhibited with many closed-back headphones.

Phase-X offers absolute linear phasing, achieving faster transient response decay, revealing the original spatial image and allowing listeners to enjoy material as if it were being recorded directly around them.
