Just like Family Man S2, the 12 Classics V2 is an exception where the successor out beats its predecessor. The 12 Classics V2 packs 99 Classics into an IEM form factor while bringing the music to life with a rich, enjoyable sound.
A CLASSIC NATURE-INSPIRED DESIGN THAT DEFIES TIME
Founded by Antonio Meze, this Romanian boutique brand has always aimed at designing timeless, one-of-a-kind headphones with a spectacular natural sound. Taking inspiration from the Meze 99 Classics, the Meze 12 Classics V2 are the in-ear headphones from the same family. These earphones stand out with its eye-catching real walnut wood body paired with durable aluminium components. Meze 12 Classics V2 is natural beauty at its best, balancing elegance with durability.
JUST LIKE THE DESIGN, EVEN THE SOUND IS NATURAL AND REAL
Not just the design, but even the sound of the Meze 12 Classics V2 is natural and life-like. Meze achieves this using a copper-clad aluminium voice coil and a high-quality 6N oxygen-free copper wire which gives you a high-grade music listening experience. Rather than resorting to artificial frequencies, the drivers of the 12 Classics V2 deliver Meze's dynamic sound signature.
TITANIUM COATED HI-RES DRIVERS FOR LIFE-LIKE AUDIO IMAGING AND LOSSLESS SOUND
Meze believes that the design of an earphone should be like a great performance. The Titanium-coated driver membrane of the Meze 12 Classics V2 gives fluidity and accuracy to the audio. The 12 Classics V2 uses the dynamic driver design for lossless audio and excellent audio imaging. This helps you to listen to your music in great detail for an intimate music listening experience.
LOSE YOURSELF TO MUSIC IN PERFECT ISOLATION WITHOUT MISSING ON THE COMFORT
Music is best when it sounds natural. That's exactly the thought process which has gone into the sound and design of the Meze 12 Classics V2. These earphones are ergonomically designed to fit all kinds of ear sizes ensuring long-lasting wearing comfort. This fit is what offers effective passive noise isolation by minimizing the external noise and keeping you within the comfort of your favourite music. Just like nature, in peace with yourself, away from the chaos of the world.

Silicon tips for those who want bass, Double Flange for those who want precision & don't like bass spills in to mids, Comply foam for those who don't want to live happily with these as they are too dark. Signature is quiet close to Meze 99 Classic but in an enclosed set up. I can say it's audiophile grade stuff which hits way above it's price point. I think best under 8k and nothing can beat these using correct recordings to listen with correct DAC + AMP combo means they are not forgiving for lower bitrate MP3s..but 320 & above should give you a taste of these...DSD could knock you off considering 6K only...Must Buy!!
Now HZ this is like fourth courier to me which does not mentioned by Address every time courier guy calls me for address..pls take care...rest everything is awesome...pls bring
SMSL Products in India & thanks for bringing Aune ..soon buy one \m/
These are extremely microphonic and have really poor imaging and detail retrieval. These shouldn't sell more than 2k in my honest opinion. Soundmagic E80C costs 3k and is a much better buy.
The only positive is that these look good.

Hey Rishivanth, thanks for sharing your honest feedback, we understand it is natural of a product to be loved by one and disliked by other.
It's amazing what a micro 8mm dynamic driver can achieve with the right turning! Meze 12 classics v2 are in a league of their own.
Build - 9/10 ( the cable is microphonic. Come one meze! Get rid of this weird experience in the next iteration)
Fit and comfort - 9/10. No complaints, though I found it needing to be inserted a bit deep to feel lower frequencies.
Bass - 8/10. tastefully done. Sub bass extension is not much but definitely punchy and textured bass. Not boomy at all!
Mids - 10/10..I just cannot find any faults here! Vocals and instrument clarity is just unbelievable at this price point! It is not at all recessed even in the upper mids and hence both male and female vocals sound amazing! Mids is where these shine and you just stay here and forget other sounds.
Highs- 8/10 definitely a nice sparkle. Does not roll off like others in the same price point.
I am using it with the sony A105 and the experience is amazing ! I never had to EQ.
Conclusion: Get it for the tonality and tastefully done bass and clear mids. Soundstage may be average and it was expected, imaging is above average for the price but overall this is a great ear phone!!
PS: If you use it with a DAC / AMP you might find the upper mids being shouty and of ofcourse extended bass. You can fix it with EQ.
Thank you for such an elaborate response! We are sure it will help others to make an informed decision. Cheers & Keep the music playing!
Thank You Headphone Zone for making it Available in India.
One the best sounding Headphone considering the Price Point.
To be Honest I am not a Audiophile, but a casual listener. Writing My Review after Completing the Burn In Period.
1. Design of the Headphone is pure bliss. It is so tiny yet very durable and Strong. Nylon Covers all the Wire Part so less chances of Breaking.
2. Sound : The sound texture is smooth and soulful. Slow music, Vocal will sound great. Treble is an issue before burn in period but now it is smooth as well.
This Headphone is definitely not for BASS lovers. Don't get me wrong It has thump but not that prominent just adequate for the Song.
Clarity of Instruments is Good.
3. I already own headphone like Sound Magic E11C, KZ ZST X and BLON BL-03. Still I always find myself reaching for this one to listing.
4. I could only find 2 Cons.
A. The Wire used by MEZE is a bit of let down, as it did not block the sound made when rubbed with cloths. So you have use clips to keep the wire in place or Don't Move while listening. LOL.....
B. I would have loved it if a Mic option was provided.
Overall a Great Earphone to have in your arsenal.
So glad to know that you love them:) We look forward to serving you again. Happy listening!
It's definitely not for bassheads , the sub bass is very little which might be a deal breaker for many , other than that it has a unique sound signature which sets it apart from the plethora of chifi iems out there, the mid range is very very good and i would definitely recommend people who love mid range and hate bass to buy these and damn these look beautiful (the main reason I bought them) you can definitely flex with them and take tons of osm pics if you're into that kind of thing one more important thing is to take into consideration the unique vocal signature these have it has a intimate vocal signature which sounds very close to ears it's very prominent in some songs, sound stage is only limited to left and right not much there it has width but i think its common in this price range maybe there are other iems which do some top and front soundstage I haven't tried many so anyways its just limited to left and right the detail retrival is not top notch but u can hear some instruments very clearly and they sound lot more natural, overall if you really love mid range and want some intimate vocals(like they sound near your ears) and you are allergic to lot of bass and want a natural sounding iem to listen to long period of time which also has stunning look go for it
We thank you for this lovely review & we are glad you are enjoying it! Keep the music playing.
First when i received it i was.stunned by its looks.
Then after burn in i listened it in mobile i couldn't get the level.
But the game changed while using it with Laptop.
Try with hp laps tuned by B&O.
The sound clarity and the output was top notch.
Great to know you had a great shopping experience Arvindraj, thank you for the delightful review & ratings. Cheers!
The Meze 12 classics are some of the best earphones you can buy at the price point. A lot of reviews said they sounded like the 99 classics which is my personal favourite. So I decided to go for them and they did not disappoint.
Everything just sounds natural. Clarity in the midrange is just too good. There was something about the bass in the 99 classics that made the sound enjoyable. Thankfully the 12 classics retains the sound signature though the bass on the 99 classics was slightly looser. Voices are clear and instrument separation is good. The build quality and comfort are top notch.
