Meze Empyrean II

Meze Empyrean II life


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.

Sonic Mastery Reimagined
Meze Empyrean II side
The result of years of research and development, Empyrean II lets you experience more of what you love.
Their goal was to enhance the headphones’ ability to reproduce fine details and achieve a more neutral sound signature, all the while preserving the original “easy to listen to” character.
The Isodynamic Hybrid Array Driver combines individual switchback and spiral shaped voice coils in one driver, allowing sound to be targeted with more accuracy around the natural form of the ear.
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.


Rinaro’s Isomagnetic® coupling technology makes switching earpads a breeze.
It utilises the demagnetizing field generated by the driver to secure the earcup in place, while simultaneously redirecting the magnetic field back into the driver, thereby enhancing efficiency.

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.

Meze case closed
Their all-new Duo earpads are specifically tailored to match Empyrean II.
Crafted from a precise blend of premium leather and Alcantara, the Duo Earpads introduce a contemporary dimension to the signature sound profile of Empyrean II.

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 outcome is a flawless fusion: well-sustained bass frequencies owed to the leather, with beautiful refinement and spatiality from Alcantara®.
Made of soft foam coated with Alcantara®, with a fine protective mesh on the grill, the Angled earpads excel at rendering intricate details and nuances in your recordings.

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.

With Empyrean II, your music takes center stage.

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.

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.
