“Empyrean was born from passion, curiosity and innovation. As a business, we have allowed ourselves the freedom to experiment and take risks in search of the perfect sound. To generate something truly remarkable, one must dare to explore, and that’s what we did with Empyrean. We pushed and refined industry’ standards and achieved a true game changer for audiophiles.”
Antonio Meze, Lead designer and Founder Meze Audio
ARCHITECTURE OF THE ISODYNAMIC® HYBRID ARRAY DRIVER
HYBRID MAGNET ARRAY
Symmetrically placed on each side of the diaphragm, our neodymium magnets are specifically arranged into a Hybrid Array to create efficient Isodynamic magnetic field required for a uniform activation across the whole diaphragm surface.
Fiberglass infused ABS
Weighing only 0.16 g while
having 4650 mm² of active area.
Fiberglass infused ABS
HYBRID ARRAY DRIVER ADVANTAGES
Total harmonic distortion (THD) measures under 0.1% in the whole frequency range
Reduced driver weight designed to create a headphone that offers prolonged listening sessions
Ergonomically shaped driver structure with an increased active area
Upper-frequency limit of audio reproduction is 110,000 Hz
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.
AN ERGONOMIC APPROACH LEADS TO A NEW WAY OF THINKING
STRAY FIELD REDUCTION FROM ISOMAGNETIC® PLATE COUPLING
Patented ferromagnetic plates channel the demagnetizing field back into the driver increasing efficiency by 1db or 12% and deflect 95% of stray fields away from the head.
ISOMAGNETIC® EARCUP TO EARPAD COUPLING TECHNOLOGY
An innovative feature is the Isomagnetic® ear cup attachment which utilizes 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.
Magnetic field shielding
Increase in driver efficiency
Invisible locking system
PRESSURE DISTRIBUTION WINGS
Patented suspension wings increase the leather headrest’s contact surface area with your head and relieve uncomfortable pressure points.
“Are the Meze Empyrean the world’s best headphone? The Romanian company make a strong case in the affirmative… The Empyrean deliver a double shot of detail and dynamics but with a sense of audible refinement that shows compromise the door.”
“If you’re an audiophile with a good set-up at home, and you are looking for a pair of headphones that can match the very best loudspeakers, then you really owe yourself the opportunity to audition these superb headphones.”
“I cannot fault their build quality nor the remarkable attention to detail that Meze has applied to these headphones… they have produced one of the most amazing headphones both regarding sound quality and aesthetics.”
