Meze Empyrean II
Building upon the legacy of its predecessor, Empyrean II emerges as a symphony of artistry, sound innovation and craftsmanship.
Redefining Audio Mastery – Meze Audio presents Empyrean II.
A natural step forward from their first ever planar magnetic headphone, Meze Empyrean II retains all the beloved elements of its iconic predecessor, with an added touch of sculptural elegance.
Crafted with precision via CNC milling, the frame features a sleek matte black finish with silver accents, and a redesigned grill that draws inspiration from the bold and timeless art deco patterns.
Empyrean II emerges as the fruitful collaboration of two passionate companies that set out to explore uncharted territories.
Their engineering team has masterfully harnessed the power of Rinaro’s Isodynamic Hybrid Array Driver to reach a new world of sound.
Total harmonic distortion (THD) measures under 0.05% in the whole frequency rangeLIGHTWEIGHT
Reduced driver weight designed to create a headphone that offers prolonged listening sessions
Anatomically designed driver structure
Upper-frequency limit of audio reproduction is 110,000 Hz
Symmetrically placed on each side of the diaphragm, the neodymium magnets are specifically arranged into a Hybrid Array to create the efficient Isodynamic magnetic field required for a uniform activation across the whole diaphragm surface.RINARO ISOPLANAR® DIAPHRAGM
Weighing only 0.16 g while having 4650 mm2 of active area.
Fiberglass infused ABS
The switchback coil of the diaphragm is more efficient at reproducing lower frequencies and is positioned in the upper part of the driver.
The spiral coil of the diaphragm is more efficient at reproducing middle-high frequencies and is positioned directly over the ear canal enabling more direct sound waves to enter the ear without any time delays.
ISOMAGNETIC® EARCUP TO EARPAD COUPLING TECHNOLOGY
Elevate your listening experience to new heights – Empyrean II comes with two sets of earpads included, allowing the ultimate sound customisation.
Switch between their Duo and Angled earpads for an auditory journey that is entirely your own.
With leather forming the base half and Alcantara® covering the rest, these earpads deliver a harmonious tonal balance that resonates across all music genres.
Meze Audio researched and tested various material ratios to achieve the best there is to offer.
The angled shape creates more space inside the earpad, which translates to an airier sound signature, with cleaner bass and improved presence in the mid-range frequency, when paired with Empyrean II.
Furthermore, they create a detailed and accurate listening experience, for the classic audiophile.
Following their highest standard for comfort, with a purpose-built structure that minimizes weight and pressure, this headphone instantly adapts to the shape of your head.
This highly acclaimed synergy of ergonomics and premium materials guarantees more than just exceptional sound – it allows you to enjoy uninterrupted hours of music with increased comfort.
