Meze Elite

Hybrid Array Isodynamic Headphone

Meze Elite

Building on the immense success of the Empyrean model of 2018, Meze Audio introduce a brand new isodynamic hybrid array model to their high-end headphone range.

Rinaro at heart

Meze ELITE is the product of a continued partnership with Ukrainian planar magnetic driver manufacturer Rinaro Isodynamics.

Each ELITE model features a newly designed MZ3SE hybrid array driver featuring Rinario’s trademarked Parus diaphragm material.

Parus is unique polymer film strengthened by a semi-crystalline microstructure.

When harnessed within a Rinaro driver, the material exhibits remarkable traits of stiffness and stability, producing a natural sound transparency along with a wide and articulate soundstage.

Dual coil technology

ELITE utilises two separate coil technologies, switchback for lower frequencies and spiral for mid and upper frequencies.

This specific configuration enables improved frequency targeting for individual parts of the aural canal, presenting a clearer soundstage and superior balance.

Personalise your soundstage

Each ELITE headphone ships with two distinct ear pad options which attach to the earcup assembly purely through the demagnetised field of the hybrid array drivers.

30mm Alacantara pads are supplied for an experience similar to suede, along with a newly developed 25mm ‘hybrid’ pads for real leather feel as well as the internal flexibility of Alacantara.

Meze Audio

Meze Audio It all started when Antonio was searching for a pair of headphones that he could relate to, in the same way he felt connected to his Fender Stratocaster guitar. An object to pour his passion for music in. An object full of personality and life, which also incorporates the attributes of a high-end technology. Meze Audio was founded in 2011 in Baia Mare, Romania. They started small, acquiring knowledge by experimenting with parts already on the market, searching and researching for the right materials and engineering solutions in the quest for the perfect sound and feel. Their breakthrough year was 2015, when, after many years of development, the 99 Classics were launched. They keep receiving awards and nominations that are beyond anyone’s expectations and are placing the 99 at the top of its category. Today all their models, headphones and earphones, are developed in-house from the ground up, in the spirit of our original 'no-compromise' vision. OBSESSING WITH QUALITY IN SOUND AND BUILD, They create high-end headphones, so they obsess about sound quality. Every aspect counts. The engineering, choice of materials, the precision of craftsmanship, the reliability are all equally important. We also make parts easily replaceable. All of these to ensure that a feeling of trust will accompany your every interaction with a Meze Meze Audio - VIVID AND IMMERSIVE. The sound signature is tuned for long listening sessions same as the ergonomics: clarity without harshness, freshness without fatigue. Meze Audio know a headphone is complete when it makes you forget about the outside world and takes you for a dive into the universe of your own feelings.
