Meze Empyrean Planar Magnetic Headphones

 

Empyrean by Meze Audio

 


Meze Empyrean

Behold one of the most technologically advanced planar magnetic headphones ever conceived, Meze Empyrean represents a new frontier in audiophile headphone listening. Bringing together the vision and expertise of two audio company legends, Meze and Rinaro have joined forces to create the next generation of planar magnetic headphones. Empyrean is a true game-changing headphone in the audiophile world.

Meze Empyrean's Isodynamic 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 and improves imaging and localization.

Everything about the Meze Empyrean has been thought out to the smallest detail. From the premium materials to the exquisite craftsmanship and enhanced ergonomics, Meze Empyrian delivers on all fronts. Meze carefully hand assembles each headphone in their facilities in Baia Mare, Romania.

A new way of listening.

Meze Empyrean

Dual Driven System
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 switchback coil is more efficient at reproducing lower frequencies, while the spiral coil is more efficient at reproducing middle-high frequencies.

Isoplanar Diaphragm Material
The diaphragm is manufactured from a custom developed isotropic thermally stabilized polymer with a conductive layer. Through unique processing methods, an ultralight yet rigid diaphragm has been achieved.

Maximum Power Output
Weight was minimized by optimizing a magnet structure around an ovoid shape that fits the ear more closely. Power output was increased through the use of a completely bespoke coil and magnet array design that optimized the active usable area of the driver within its ovoid shape.

Isomagnetic Coupling Technology
An innovative feature is the Isomagnetic earcup attachment which uses the demagnetizing field generated by the driver to hold the earcup in place whilst also redirecting the magnetic field back into the driver and improving driver efficiency.

Material Design
Empyrean incorporates carbon fibre headband, leather headrest and high precision CNC sculpted chassis, milled from a single piece of solid aluminium. The CNC milled aluminium grill provides airflow control to ensure a natural sound transparency and is a work of art in its own right.

Fully Serviceable
A core belief of Meze is to create products that last. The Empyrean is no different, from the replaceable earpads to the high-performance materials used, every part on the headphone chassis is available to be serviced and disassembled by Meze's skilled team.
