Description
 

The Meze Empyrean headphone are top of the line headphones for the audiophile. State of the art design make these headphone one of the premier headphones in the world. Their unique planar magnetic design brings delivers spectacular sound. Every serious headphone listener should have one in his/her headphones rig!

DESIGNED AND ENGINEERED
IN BAIA MARE, ROMANIA



A blend of premium materials, exquisite craftsmanship and detailing that’s unmistakably Meze, Empyrean is one of the most technologically innovative planar magnetic headphones in the world.

HYBRID ARRAY DRIVER ADVANTAGES

Combines two independently shaped voice coils within the same diaphragm delivering more selective acoustic performance to the various areas within the structure of the ear.

ACCURATE REPRODUCTION
Total harmonic distortion (THD) measures under 0.1% in the whole frequency range LIGHTWEIGHT
Reduced driver weight designed to create a headphone that offers prolonged listening sessions ERGONOMIC SHAPE
Ergonomically shaped driver structure with an increased active area ULTRA-HIGH-RESOLUTION AUDIO
Upper-frequency limit of audio reproduction is 110,000 Hz ULTRA EFFICIENT
100db@1mw/1kHz High performance without needing amplification PATENT PENDING ISODYNAMIC HYBRID ARRAY DRIVER
World's first in planar magnetic headphones

Over 30 years of research and development have led to the creation of the first Isodynamic Hybrid Array driver. Meze Audio have collaborated with Rinaro to create a new standard in planar magnetic audio, the resulting technology being one of the lightest and most advanced planar magnetic drivers on the market.

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 and improves imaging and localization by decreasing the impact of shortwave time delays caused by diffused field reflections.

AUDIBLE BENEFITS OF A DUAL DRIVEN SYSTEM

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.

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. SWITCHBACK COIL
The switchback coil is more efficient at reproducing lower frequencies and is positioned in the upper part of the driver. SPIRAL COIL
The spiral coil is more efficient at reproducing middle-high frequencies and is positioned directly over the ear canal enabling more direct sound waves to enter the ear without any time delays.

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 our skilled team.
