Uniquely capable driver design
When designing the Isodynamic® drivers for the Empyrean, Meze’s partner Rinaro combined two independently shaped voice coils inside of the same diaphragm, which allows the headphone to selectively and intentionally deliver key aspects of the frequency range to various areas within the structure of the ear. This feat of engineering, in combination with the highly resolving, lightweight planar driver structure, ensures that this listening experience will be like nothing you’ve ever encountered before.

Comfort and beauty together
Of course, great acoustics must be paired with comfortable ergonomics, and fortunately, these headphones deliver. Meze has carefully considered the distribution of pressure across the headband, and uses compliant leather that self-adjusts to maximize the amount of contact it has with the top of the listeners head, relieving pressure and improving comfort. This thoughtful design in combination with the Empyrean’s lightweight carbon and aluminum frame ensure that every long listening session will be rewarded comfortably.
