Revolution starts with collaboration. The proof is in the Empyrean: a game-changing pair of planar magnetic headphones from Meze and Rinaro. Equipped with first-of-their-kind hybrid driver arrays featuring two independently shaped voice coils within the same diaphragm, the Empyrean optimizes sound distribution and drastically reduces the presence of mistimed reflected signals. Complementing each coil pair, a patent-pending Isoplanar diaphragm provides class-leading rigidity and conductivity in an ultra-lightweight design. Surrounding the coil and diaphragm, dual neodymium magnets deliver distortion-free sonic details with amply clarity and bass presence. Finally, patent-pending Isomagnetic technology uses the demagnetizing field generated by the driver to firmly hold the earcup in place and redirect the magnetic field back into the driver, improving efficiency.

Meze Audio was born in 2011 in Baia Mare, Romania, when founder Antonio Meze wanted a pair of headphones he could feel as connected to as he did with his Fender Stratocaster guitar: a pair of headphones into which he could pour his passion for music. The company’s breakthrough came in 2015, when—after years of development—it launched the 99 Classics. The recipient of countless awards, nominations, and positive reviews, these headphones represent the company’s obsession with quality and its meticulous, no-compromises, as-long-as-it-takes approach. The goal is clarity without harshness, freshness without fatigue. Behind Meze Audio is a dedicated team of engineers, musicians, artists, and designers—and headphones are at the intersection: where everyone’s interests meet.
