Meze Liric

Meze Liric

Marking Meze’s first model to incorporate hybrid array driver technology into a closed-back headphone design, portable audio fans are treated to a new benchmark of isodynamic performance with LIRIC.

Meze signature form & function

Meze form

As with other high-end headphones from Meze Audio, LIRIC’s design is a perfectly executed balance of timeless aesthetics, cutting edge audio technology and the comfort to enable listening sessions as long as one could ask for.

And LIRIC delivers these qualities with remarkable confidence on each front.

LIRIC’s brand new MZ4 driver developed by Rinaro Isodynamics features premium materials, an iso-planar diaphragm with sizeable active area, and dual voice coils (switchback and spiral) configured for the perfect immersive experience.

Phase-X technology

Another innovation of the MZ4 is Rinaro’s Phase-X system designed to reduce phase distortion – an issue often exhibited with many closed-back headphones.

Phase-X offers absolute linear phasing, achieving faster transient response decay, revealing the original spatial image and allowing listeners to enjoy material as if it were being recorded directly around them.

Lightweight breathable design

LIRIC features a lightweight magnesium frame perfect for headphones on the go, whilst its padded headband cushions are symmetrically configured with a cross-shaped cushion divider for ease of airflow which avoids overheating while the headphones are worn.

Brand

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.
