Meze Audio, established in 2011 in Baia Mare, Romania, has rapidly become a prominent player in the audio industry. From its inception, the company has demonstrated consistent growth and a commitment to producing high-quality, outstanding headphones. A prime example of their dedication to auditory excellence is the Meze Audio Empyrean II Planar Magnetic Headphones. Positioned as the successor to its acclaimed predecessor, the Empyrean II seamlessly combines artistic ingenuity with technological advancements, resulting in a creation that serves as both a testament to meticulous craftsmanship and a gateway to sonic euphoria. With the Empyrean II, Meze aims to provide an unparalleled high-fidelity experience, focusing on top-tier planar-magnetic performance, complemented by a design that is not only visually appealing but also exceptionally comfortable. The Meze signature is evident in the meticulous blend of premium materials, exquisite craftsmanship, and attention to detail that defines the Empyrean II.



The Empyrean II stands as a pinnacle of audio engineering, born from the passionate collaboration between Meze Audio and Rinaro. This collective effort aimed to transcend conventional sound boundaries, and the result is a true auditory masterpiece. At the heart of the Empyrean II lies Rinaro's patented Isodynamic Hybrid Array Driver, a marvel that promises to transport listeners to unexplored realms of sound. This innovative driver ingeniously combines individual switchback and spiral voice coils, aligning with the ear's natural form for precise sound delivery. With a remarkably low total harmonic distortion (THD) of under 0.1% across its frequency spectrum and an ultra-high-resolution audio upper limit of 110,000 Hz, the Empyrean II ensures a pure and unadulterated listening experience. Neodymium magnets, strategically placed on either side of the ultralight diaphragm (weighing a mere 0.16 g with a 4650 mm² active area), form a hybrid array, creating an efficient Isodynamic magnetic field that guarantees uniform activation across the entire diaphragm surface.



The dedicated team of acoustic engineers at Meze Audio understood the value of patience in their pursuit of perfection. Spending months experimenting with various tuning techniques, they discovered new possibilities that would elevate the listening experience. The meticulous efforts led to a breakthrough in resolution and detail retrieval, resulting in a cleaner and more accurate representation of sound compared to the original Empyrean. The Empyrean II is the culmination of years of research and development, promising to elevate your favourite tracks to unprecedented levels of clarity, depth, and engagement. Crafted to enhance detail reproduction and establish a neutral sound signature, this headphone maintains the cherished "easy to listen to" character while incorporating ingenious tuning techniques. The outcome is unparalleled resolution and detail, combined with enhanced membrane reliability, ensuring impeccable performance across diverse acoustic settings.



The Empyrean II transcends being merely a listening device; it stands tall as a symbol of aesthetic elegance. Retaining iconic elements from its predecessor - Empyrean, this headphone features a meticulously crafted frame with precise CNC milling, a matte black finish, and silver accents. The redesigned grill, inspired by timeless art deco motifs, enhances its visual appeal. Meze Audio's design team's commitment is evident in the blend of beauty and resilience achieved through multiple iterations. Bundled with Duo and Angled Earpads, the Empyrean II offers customisable sound capabilities, catering to various genres. The Duo Earpads, crafted from premium leather and Alcantara, promise a balanced audio profile, while the Angled Alcantara Earpads provide a spatial sound signature. Beyond customisation, this headphone prioritises comfort with its ergonomic structure, ensuring uninterrupted music enjoyment for extended periods. The Isomagnetic ear cup-to-earpads technology simplifies the earpads-switching process, utilising the demagnetising field to secure the ear cup and enhance efficiency.



Meze believes in creating products that last. Empyrean II is no different: every part of the headphone chassis can be disassembled and serviced with ease if ever needed. Empyrean II isn't just a purchase; it's an investment in the future of sound. Adhering to Meze Audio's philosophy of longevity, every component of this headphone chassis is designed to be easily serviceable. The assurance that your beloved headphones can stand the test of time, and continue to deliver unparalleled sound for years to come.
