Balanced Sound Signature

Headphones with a Balanced sound signature presents a precise sound and an enriching listening experience, where sounds are naturally presented without extreme emphasis on any region. With a pair of headphones with this sound signature, you can hear audio with clarity and detail. The sound is vivid and revealing, a perfect mixture of instruments and vocals, lows, mids, and highs. This sound signature works for most music listeners who like switching between various music genres like Classical, Jazz, Blues, Rock, Folk and Pop.

Ideal for Audiophiles

These Wired Headphones are designed for discerning music lovers. If you are someone who cares about audio quality deeply, you'll want a pair of Wired Headphones like these. You can expect these Wired Headphones to present you with a refined listening experience. The audio quality exhibited by these Wired Headphones is a beautiful mix of musicality, technical brilliance and high precision. These Wired Headphones deliver a spacious and open soundstage that compares listening to music on actual speakers.

Metal build

The longevity of your headphone/devices is strongly affected by its build quality, and a poorly built pair is more susceptible to breaking in a short amount of time. This is even more important for the listener who travels with their headphones/devices frequently, as wear and tear are more probable.Headphones/devices built with metal and metal components usually tend to last longer and can withstand wear and tear and potential damage. Modern processes allow all kinds of precious and durable metals to be used while making devices and offer a longer lifetime for users.

Planar Magnetic Drivers

Planar Magnetic technology has been around for decades and headphones with Planar Magnetic drivers present a more detailed, more coherent representation of the music. Planar Magnetic driver features a series of magnets on both sides of a very large, flexible diaphragm containing tiny, electrically charged wires. When an audio signal is passed through it an electrical conductor moves between fixed magnets, reproducing sound waves. Headphones with a Planar Magnetic driver deliver an accurate and distortion-free audio signal.

Open-Back Design

Headphones with an Open-Back design are rather special in that they allow air to pass through the headphone ear cups to the speaker. What this means is that since open-back headphones don’t block surrounding noises as closed-back do, you’ll be able to enjoy an immersive sound experience. The sound is more natural and high fidelity due to the lack of pressure build-up. Open-back headphones create a feeling of space, presenting a feeling as if the musicians are all sitting around you. These headphones are perfect for critical listening sessions and mixing and mastering music due to their accurate soundstage presentation.

Needs Amplification

If you plug your wired headphones directly into your phone or laptop, you are probably not hearing them at their best. This usually happens because the amplifier in your phone or laptop is not capable enough to drive your headphones to their best. A dedicated headphone amplifier is an elegant solution for this, and it can power your wired headphones to their maximum capability. When you invest in a good pair of wired headphones that are hard to drive, it's worth getting a dedicated headphone amp as it will make your headphones sound even better.

Replaceable Cables

A pair of headphones with a replaceable cable has many benefits, and one of them is if the connecting cable has a problem, it doesn’t mean that you have to buy a new one. If the connecting cable gets pulled or damaged, you can replace it and keep using your good-old headphones or IEMs. This way, your headphones will be protected and will last longer. With the advancements in cable manufacturing, you now get a variety of replacement cables with various termination options, lengths and quality.

The Meze Empyrean is the definition of musical headphones. No matter what genre you throw at it, it plays it faithfully. Vocals are forward, and the overall presentation of instruments will envelop you. Apart from being musical, they are possibly the most well-designed pair of headphones you will ever put on and truly flagship headphones in every sense.

MEZE AUDIO PRESENTS THE FIRST ISODYNAMIC HYBRID ARRAY PLANAR HEADPHONE - THE EMPYREAN

Meze Audio, founded in 2011 in Baia Mare, Romania, has been making waves in the audio industry. Since its inception, it has grown by leaps and bounds. Meze Audio has always strived to develop high-performing and exceptional headphones. The exquisite Empyrean was born as a result of; the continuous pursuit of perfection in sound and design. The Empyrean is Meze Audio’s flagship open-back headphone and is the first planar-magnetic headphone using Rinaro’s Isodynamic Hybrid Array Driver. With the Empyrean, Meze seeks to deliver an unrivalled Hi-Fidelity experience that revolves around top-tier planar-magnetic performance, coupled with an aesthetically pleasing and supremely comfortable design. A blend of premium materials, exquisite craftsmanship and detailing is unmistakably Meze. The Empyrean is one of the most technologically innovative planar magnetic headphones ever developed. It was the result of creativity, curiosity, and passion. To find the perfect sound, Meze Audio has the flexibility to experiment and take calculated risks. The engineers at Meze Audio explored with the Empyrean because they dared to do so to create something genuinely spectacular. Meze Audio pushed and enhanced industry standards to create a product that will alter how audiophiles perceive music.

AN EPITOME OF COMFORT, DESIGN, AND STYLE WITH ANATOMICALLY DESIGNED OVATE EARCUPS AND ANTHROPOMETRIC EAR PAD DESIGN

The Empyrean was created by Meze Audio with an ergonomic design in mind, with ovate earcups and anthropometric earpads. To develop and design an audiophile headphone that is powerful yet light, the driver needed to maximise power output while reducing weight as much as possible. Meze Audio has also incorporated ISOMAGNETIC® earcup to earpad coupling technology into the Empyrean. An innovative feature is the Isomagnetic® ear cup attachment which utilises the demagnetizing field generated by the driver to hold the ear cup in place whilst also redirecting the magnetic field back into the driver and improving driver efficiency. They have also included magnetic field shielding with ferromagnetic ear pads that decrease the magnetic stray field affecting your head. Patented ferromagnetic plates channel the magnetic field back into the driver, increasing output and driver efficiency. It also has an invisible locking system with the innovative use of the magnetic field of the drivers to fix the earcups in place. The headband also has pressure distribution wings. Suspension wings increase the leather headrest’s contact surface area with your head and relieve uncomfortable pressure points, offering additional comfort, even when used for long listening sessions. The headband arch is made from a lightweight carbon fibre material, as opposed to spring steel, to keep it supple yet very light.

FEATURES RINARO'S ISODYNAMIC® HYBRID ARRAY DRIVER FUSED WITH ISOPLANAR® DIAPHRAGM

Over 30 years of research and development have led to the creation of the first Isodynamic Hybrid Array driver. Neodymium magnets are placed on either side of the ultralight diaphragm (Weighing only 0.16 g while having a 4650 mm² active area). These magnets are placed in a hybrid array creating an efficient Isodynamic magnetic field. This architecture ensures uniform activation across the whole diaphragm surface. The two independently shaped voice coils within the same diaphragm deliver more selective acoustic performance to the various areas within the anatomy of your ear. Meze Audio has collaborated with Rinaro to create a new standard in planar magnetic headphones, the resulting technology being one of the lightest and most advanced planar magnetic drivers. The Empyrean is the product of two passionate companies coming together to explore what is possible beyond their capabilities. The result is a no-compromise headphone embodying Meze’s aesthetic and user-centred design approach and Rinaro’s experience in research and development within the field of planar magnet technology.

EXPERIENCE THE AUDIBLE BENEFITS OF A DUAL-DRIVEN DIAPHRAGM COIL THAT REDUCES REFLECTIONS AND DELIVERS CLEAN AUDIO

The Empyrean Driver combines individual switchback and spiral-shaped voice coils, their unique shapes allowing sound to be targeted with more accuracy around the natural form of the ear. This unique combination generates an increased exposure of direct sound wave frequencies over the 10kHz range, improving imaging and localization by decreasing the impact of shortwave time delays caused by diffused field reflections. One of the problems with conventional planar magnetic arrays is coming from reflected signals entering the ear canal with different time delays, thereby worsening the focus of 3D sound imaging. Combining different voice coil configurations makes it possible to create a better sound intensity distribution across the sound wavefront at high frequencies when directed at the auricle and ear canal. The Empyrean's driver hosts an ISOPLANAR® diaphragm material. This diaphragm is manufactured from a custom-developed isotropic thermally stabilised polymer with a conductive layer. It also has a switchback coil and spiral coil. The switchback coil in the upper portion of the driver is more effective at reproducing lower frequencies. Since the spiral coil is placed directly over the ear canal and is more effective at recreating mid-high frequencies, there are fewer delays when sound waves enter the ear. Experience the magic of the Empyrean and immerse yourself in pure sonic bliss!

Magnificent sound

The Empyreans look stunning and the build quality is just unmatchable. A piece of art really. They look huge but they are actually the most comfortable pair of headphones I have ever worn, to the point where I just forget I am wearing them.

The bass is full bodied, rich and goes deep. Very pleasing to listen to and tastefully done. And they can strike really hard when the track demands it. The bass can also get a little loose sometimes depending on the track, but always in a good way.

The mids are masterfully done. The empyreans are very attentive in the mids and sound very effortless. They perform admirably especially when there are a lot of instruments in play. Drums sound heavenly. These made me a fan of rock music. Voices - both male and female - just sound stunning.

The highs are crisp and clear. There are a lot of details in play but they are not pushed upon you and do not sound forced. Also, they sound very natural unlike something like the focal clears which can tend to sound metallic in the highs at times. Smooth is the word, without a hint of sibilance.

The imaging is excellent and the soundstage is very good. With the Alcantara pads on, they sounded slightly more open and the treble had some added sparkle and clarity. With the leather pads, they sounded more intimate and richer in comparison, which was my preference. The Woo audio WA11 topaz has been an excellent pair to the Empyrean.

The gorgeous sound and the excellent comfort means I have rarely taken them off my head in the last 5 months. Also means I have had to bid goodbye to a lot of my old headphones which I have come to love over the years.

So glad to know that you love them:) We look forward to serving you again. Happy listening !!

Words are difficult to describe how good this headphone is. It is an experience. Works for all genres. Songs I have been hearing for 20 years are revealing more nuances and in general more musical.
Next up, Meze Elite ;)
